Cinecast Episode 428 – The Undependables

anatomy-nogamble

Twer the day of the big game. Which makes theaters and restaurants nearly empty. Ergo, Kurt and Andrew are very happy and indulge in the old fashioned style Cinecast complete with an hour long review of Hail, Caesar!, long discussions in each of The Watch List titles and many an unrelated tangent. The popularity of James Cameron’s Avatar continues to baffle the boys while the unpopularity of “lesser” Coen Brothers fare is equally stupefying. We ask for listeners help with casting the next Third Row Productions screenplay that’s in the works. Also Jerry Seinfeld is back with a new season of “talking shop” with comedians in (usually) cool cars. Doesn’t seem like much, but all of the fun adds up in this 3+ hour, old-school Cinecast. Listen up, we’ve got all your secret shit right here!

“The Prisoner” A microPodcast

 
Kurt Halfyard & Nat Almirall swap their togas for khakis, jackets, the occasional blue turtleneck, and suave buttons to bring you another microcast, this time focusing on the celebrated, allegorical, and surreal 1967 series The Prisoner.

Conceived by the enigmatic Patrick McGoohan, “The Prisoner” follows a British ex-spy who ‘privately, personally, and by hand’ resigns his post only to be gassed and spirited to a bizarre Village, a place where all the other peculiar inhabitants are identified by numbers and overseen by an ominous, but ever revolving Number 2. As the spy, now renamed Number 6, seeks an escape, Number 2, ‘by hook or by crook,’ attempts to uncover the reason for Number 6’s resignation.

Join Numbers K & N as they break down each of the 17 episodes, unraveling the metaphors, tracking Number 6 on the Dickishness Behavior Scale, engaging in a bit of the ultra passive-aggressiveness, and lavishing praise on the monolithic Leo McKern.

What do the Cold War, Lewis Carroll, Gay Barry Goldwater, and Lava Lamps(tm) have in common? What is the best way to escape from being tied to a chair? How do you make a Village Iced Tea? And what is up with those umbrellas? Listen in, and then you will know everything…

The first three episodes are available now for streaming (see table of contents below) or in the RowThree podcast feed to send to whatever listening device you prefer:

After the Credits Episode 184: February Preview

deadpool_74507

He becons many sequels. The role Ryan Reynolds was born to play

Sooooo we sort of missed December due to the festival craziness and then January… well, that was all my fault. That’s what a week of holidays will do to you. It made my brain so mushy I forgot that we were supposed to record and then regular January stuff happened and time just vanished!

It was probably for the best. January at the movies looked absolutely terrible. Good news is, Coleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) are back just in time for some of the good stuff to start our year of podcasting off right!

Other stuff mentioned this episode:

– Entrance to the Salmar Theatre in Salmon Arm BC:

Cinecast Episode 427 – Stretching the Bubblegum

Was it the weather or is it the shitty inconvenient way films are released in theaters these days? Or does it depend on your geography or disposition? Or a little bit of everything? In short, we didn’t get to the “main releases” (of boats in storms or feminist westerns) this week and instead opted for some VOD experimentation with Vincent Cassell in Partisan. A solid film with problems is the verdict. The Watch List is fairly eclectic this week but a whole lotta witchin’ going on. From Winona Ryder to Vin Diesel, we cover the gamut. Andrew and Kurt also spend some time in the kitchen cooking up some spaghetti westerns before heading to Southeast Asia for a thriller and some kung-fu. Like a snake in the eagle’s shadow, there is no escape for the good the bad or the ugly; there most certainly will be blood inside Llewyn Davis.
