Cinecast Episode 315 – From Shakespeare to Prada to Zombies

  Three theatrical reviews from three wildly different films. Top 5 List of 2013 so far. The advertising differences of Pacific Rim and The Counselor. A fair bit of Watchlist chat, specifically on the Coen’s Man Who Wasn’t There, and Sundance Original series, Rectify. This ain’t a short one, folks. As always, please join the conversation...

Cinecast Episode 310 – Demon Leeches

Back to two shows a week will hopefully continue to be the norm from here on out. This week’s b-side focuses on two episodes of “Game of Thrones” in which there is a lot to haggle over. The least of which is probably the sheer amount of boobs, butts and blue balls. A nice distraction from a voice mail from a regular listener has us evaluating...

Cinecast Episode 307 – Don’t Be A Don’ter

This week sees the absence of Matt Gamble but that doesn’t stop us for going on far longer than probably needs be about another fantastic episode in the saga of Westeros. We take a step back from our initial anticipation of a Michael Bay film and remind ourselves to keep calm and carry on. The Watch List this week takes us to HotDocs and Jurassic Park....

Cinecast Episode 306 – Shameless Ridiculousness

Are we an effective team? We are arguably more effective than the mediocrity of the Kosinski/Cruise assembly squad insofar as we seem to be in agreement on Oblivion. (SPOILERS!) The popcorn science fiction takes a lot of leaps, but it never really lands on particularly solid (or fertile) ground due to similarities to so many other things. We recap yet another...

Cinecast Episode 305 – Throwing Darts at a Hornet’s Nest

Being April, we thought it apropos to talk some baseball films – including 42, A League of Their Own, Major League and on and on. We once again debate the merits (and demerits) of Zack Snyder’s Watchmen and express our disappointment in one Danny Boyle. Speaking of Zack Snyder, the man with the “S” on his shirt is coming back once again...

Cinecast Episode 304 – Beware Movies That Are Named After Songs

A ‘Biggie Size’ episode of the Cinecast has Matt Gamble return to heap copious praise upon Mad Men and Game of Thrones. Never one to disappoint, he gets into fisticuffs with Kurt over the Evil Dead remake and ancient tomes made out of human skin. Andrew moderates like a champ and tries his utmost to keep the other two from fondling each others...

Cinecast Episode 301 – The Sniff Test

It’s just not worth it dammit; it’s just. not. worth. it. But, that’s what we’re here for: to talk incessantly (almost an hour) about a film that is not worth talking about for much more than couple of minutes. Our conclusion of Olympus Has Fallen: dumb. But we do look forward to the next couple of episodes with other, more interesting...

Cinecast Episode 299 – Techincally, Literally and Actually

We don’t have much to get into today. Mostly were just shaking in our boots about the expectations for Episode 300. So far we’ve got nothing but we’ll figure out what to do for something at least a little bit different. For today, it’s all Park Chan-Wook and trying to pronounce Mia Wasikowska. Love doesn’t quite do it justice. Be...

Cinecast Episode 297 – Eat Her Cookies

  We’re more or less back to our regularly scheduled programming this week, though it’s with great and powerful pleasure we bring you two main stream, theatrical reviews. While the boys parse through Sam Raimi’s prequel of The Wizard of Oz they reminisce a bit on the theatrics and minutiae of 1939 film making and the original version....

Cinecast Episode 296 – Praying at the Juno Temple

Without much going on in theaters currently, Andrew and Kurt take to the internet and discuss the current VOD release of The Brass Teapot starring Juno Temple and Michael Angarano. A quiet little 80s style suburban fable with a a dash of Dante, a sprinkle of The Great Recession and a dollop of light bondage. Andrew sorts out his security issues with the...
