Cinecast Episode 453 – Neither and Both

From nothing to everything. The theaters had nothing good and now we’ve got so many things we can’t get to them all (alas no Pete’s Dragon or War Dogs). But we do give initial reports on Anthropoid and Hell or High Water – both to be investigated deeper on future installments of the Cinecast. For now, rest assured they are both great. But this week it’s all about Studio Laika releasing Kubo and the Two Strings… about an hour’s worth of discussion actually. We go back and forth a little bit about overall quality of the film, but we’re both in 100% agreement that all movie-goers should be opening their wallet for Laika. Starting now. Also our DePalma retrospective is winding down, but we jumped back 40+ years to see Margot Kidder and Margot Kidder star in Sisters. A couple of tacked on things to The Watch List for good measure as well.

postbanner2ParaNorman-027

 

Boo! We’re joined by Mackenzie Peykov this week to talk about the amazing Laika film – PARANORMAN! There’s so much to talk about with this one, from Casey Affleck’s delightfully dumb Mitch to that ending confrontation that goes darker than anything we’ve seen in a kid’s film of late. You won’t want to miss this spectacular and spooky episode!

After the Credits Episode 195: Littlest Hobo Media Spew – July

Give us more!

Give us more!

It doesn’t happen very often but on this month’s episode of the Media Spew, we all happened to watch the same show. Yes, as with everyone else, Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) all manged to get sucked into the cult of “Stranger Things.”

Aside from Netflix, we also caught up with a great assortment of movies, both new and old. Listen in for all the goodness!

Cinecast Episode 452 – Too Much Pole Vaulting

Due to sleep deprivation for both of your humble hosts, neither were able to get the flicker house this week for a “new” review. However, DePalma is always accessible and we spend a good deal of time trying to figure out what the hell he was thinking by essentially doing a more sprawling version of Carrie with THE FURY just one year after wrapping up Carrie. Both this decision and the film itself is baffling – but ripe for body explosion and pole vaulting conversation. The Watch List is kind of all over the place as well. It includes book and video game talk as well as “Michael Bay isn’t that bad” conversation and a duplicate title from 1975 that you won’t ever find. Oh yeah, and Leland Orser takes the lead!

Cinecast Episode 451 – The PTSD is Palpable

After some infectious diseases ravaged through the third row, The Cinecast returns as healthy as ever, albeit a day late. However, as promised we’ve got a review for one of the indie darlings of the year in Hunt for the Wilderpeople from Thor 3 and What We Do in the Shadows director, Taika Waititi. The De Palma retrospective starts back up this week heading into Vietnam with Casualties of War; where there are no rules. The Watch List this week consists of time travel and spaghetti westerns and disasters and zombies and apocalypses and animated talking roses and Indian mafias and 80s slop-raunch and Werner Herzog. It will all make sense later.

After the Credits Episode 194: August Preview

Harley Quinn FTW

Harley Quinn FTW

Summer movie season is coming to an end and August is a perfect encapsulation of that fact: a mix of last minute tentpole releases with a mix of indie fare that marks the end of one festival season and the beginning of another.

Coleen returns this month to join Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) as we look ahead to the interesting mix of titles being released in August which includes a handful of great looking but poorly titled releases.

Dale also introduces his new project, a storytelling show called Terminal City Tales which you can check out here.
