Mamo 435: Oscars So White, Too!

Mamo!

Mamo jumps up and down on the 2015 nominations for the Oscar, and you get to hear what happens! Are the Oscars “so white?” Is Leonardo DiCaprio “gonna win?” Does The Revenant “suck?” All this and a whole lot of Mad Max: Fury Road love on tonight’s episode.

Plus, if it sounds to you like a crazy person is moaning at the top of his lungs throughout 9/10ths of the episode, you’re not wrong: a crazy person is moaning at the top of his lungs throughout 9/10ths of the episode. And for once, it’s not Price!

Super Ticket Episode 7 – The Death Gantry

sw-super-ticket

The dream has become a reality. We now live in a world in which the sequel to Return of the Jedi is actually in existence. New heroes, old Jedi. Wookies, story board decisions, gender politics. Poor casting, use of CGI vs practical, box offfice numbers. Prognostication, the generational differences, the marketing. And it’s cold outside, so put on your coat!

Yes, there’s so much to get into with the latest installment of the Star Wars saga from director J.J. Abrams so we cover as much as we can in 75 minutes. The majority of the Super Ticket cast was completely enamored and in true wonder with the spectacle; but there is a vocal minority in here and he will not be silenced. Come forth young Padawans and receive your lesson for the day from Mamo! and The Cinecast. This is The Super Ticket: Episode VII.

Mamo 431: Genresode

Mamo!

There was a lot of conversation in the comments for our previous episode regarding the genre of Marvel’s Jessica Jones – particularly, is it film noir? Is it a superhero show? Is it neither, or both? The Matts have opinions on what makes those genres genres, and what genre means, genre-ally. Listen in!

Mamo 430: The Battle of the Decompression of the Lord of the Mockingjays, Part II

Mamo!

What’s with all these Part Is, Part IIs, 13-part Netflix series, and the rest? Well, we already know the answer: money. But the case of the extended cut of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies provides a study in knowing when your movie is too long, just right, or in some cases, not long enough.

Apologies in advance – this episode is noisy, even for us. We’ll try to pick a better spot next time (although to be fair, the pizza was terrific).

Mamo 429: Star Wars Prequel Conversation Number 6,397

Mamo!

Christmas is in the air, but more importantly, so is Star Wars – a lot of it, a truly nauseating amount of it really, but who are we to back away from the roaring fire of Star Wars contemplation that is the internet in the 4th quarter of 2015? So here’s yet another look at the much-maligned Prequel Trilogy, and George Lucas, and why things are the way they are.
