Cinecast Episode 445 – Seductively Sleazy

So Pixar stepped progress back a couple of decades by bullying and belittling the mentally challenged and thinking that’s ok. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. First we need to exorcise the demons with railroad ties, track suits and gongs in Hong-jin Na’s fantastically bizarre The Wailing. From there, we continue with the De Palma retrospective and take a coke’d out boat ride with Al Pacino and Sean Penn in the “much wiser gangster” picture, Carlito’s Way. We’re pretty confident those subways are not actually red. The Watch List devolves into more Disney intolerance and racism with Song of the South and Finding Dory as well as some good ol’ fashioned gangster comedy. Kurt keeps it “brief” this week with a quick look into the mind of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Neon Demon which we will consider a bit more thoughtfully on next week’s show.

After the Credits Episode 191: Littlest Hobo Media Spew – May

If we're lucky, this is the end of these ridiculous mashups

If we’re lucky, this is the end of these ridiculous mashups

We’ve seen stuff! Really!

Much of the TV we usually watch is either on hiatus or about to disappear on summer break so this month, Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) touch base on a couple of finales, share thoughts on some recently seen movies, books and the usual rundown of podcasts!

Cinecast Episode 444 – Gorgeously Sleazy

And the summer theatrical season continues to be of zero interest to our heroes. Luckily the De Palma retrospective is about to kick off at the TIFF Lightbox and continues all summer long. So we’ll loosely follow that schedule for the time being. Last week we reviewed De PalmaNiro in Hi, Mom and this week we keep going with the Travolta vehicle, Blow Out. From there, we move on to a little more delightfully trashy fare from William Friedkin and Tony Scott. Lastly Danny Boyle never gets enough credit for his amazingness.

Mamo 450: Christ II – The Revenge

Mamo!

JESUS IS BACK AND HE’S READY TO KICK ROMAN ASS! And other sequels no one asked for. As think piece writers in general catch up to what Mamo was saying eleven years ago, we discuss the latest brace of underperforming (?) number twos, plus Warcraft, Star Trek, and the return of Mel Gibson.

Girls on Pop – Episode 5: Cuteness Overload

The second best reaction of the year

The second best reaction of the year

Can you believe it? Another episode already? There was just so much to talk about and we managed to find the time to record so why hold on to the gloriousness when you can enjoy it in a more timely manner? I mean, you want to fangirl with us right? And there is fangirling this week!

This week Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) talk Hollywood news including announcement of the upcoming Flash movie director, the DCU “Rebrith” and our feelings on Netflix tracking our viewing habbits before we get into some movie talk.

SPOILER WARNING! We get spoilery with the Me Before You discussion for both the book and the movie and though we say that it’s the last thing we’re going to talk about but we lied! We couldn’t help ourselves and added a few things at the end so… the spoiler filled conversation starts at 00:52:00 and ends at 01:04:32.

Cinecast Episode 443 – Cheerfully Sleazy

No katana-wielding turtles and no angry birds knocking down buildings under construction. Sorry, that’s our own integrity as serious journalists simply taking a stand. Across this line, YOU DO NOT… also dude, the indie scene was not looking much better according to the outside reviews. So in preparation for the upcoming documentary, De Palma, we’ve decided this week to take a look back at the very early career of the man, with Hi, Mom!, from 1970. Perhaps more interesting, this is pre-Mean Streets Robert De Niro; and man there is a lot going on in this film. Also as promised, we’ve got an all new top five list celebrating the shorter films of greatness. A small Watch List about robots and the cinematic state of A.I. rounds out this lovely little show.
