Cinecast Episode 369 – Sometimes You Gotta Lie to Tell the Truth

We should retitle the show from Cinecast to “room full of loudmouths.” Matt Gamble is back on the show this week to add that extra dimension of bitching, praising, complaining, droning and bloviation that this episode needed to give the series a good crane kick in the ass. First up it’s the festival favorite TIME LAPSE, which despite its high concept and heady nature, the boys find surprisingly little to say about except that it’s pretty great. Andrew and Matt report on the Jeremy Renner vehicle, KILL THE MESSENGER – which peaked far too early in the run time. Pat Morita is the sensei for THE KARATE KID in this week’s volume of The 1984 Project. With The Watch List this week, it’s more Fincher, more Duplass, more sci-fi and high concept, cannibalism, Amazon Prime, Mike Meyers’ directorial debut and Harry Potter with horns. Lastly we argue about nothing regarding HBO’s newly announced method of content delivery.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Soundtrack Of Your Life #6: Donnie Darko

0 days… 1 hour… 12 minutes… 49 seconds. That… is when the episode… will end.

Each episode, Corey Pierce welcomes a guest onto the show who has chosen a compilation or soundtrack that speaks to a memorable era of their life. The soundtrack will play underneath and serves as a springboard to discussion about the music itself, how it works within the film, and what was going on with their life at the time of its release.

For episode 6 Corey welcomes Toronto Film Scene writer Sean Kelly to pick apart the lyrical themes and time travel theory details that makes up 2001’s Donnie Darko, the cult sensation that after countless viewings inspired Sean to seek a B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies. We use the rare 2004 Director’s Cut version of the soundtrack as a base and discuss the difference in song usages, as well as diversions on bullying, 9/11, life with aspergers, and more.

After the Credits Episode 160: VIFF Dispatch #3 – The Wrap Show

VIFFBanner2014

The end is here. Almost.

The Vancouver International Film Festival wrapped with The Incident but festival correspondent, and Green Screen of Death podcast co-host, Bill Harris (@soundjam69), Lisa (making her grand reappearance 2 years after her podcast debut) and I recorded a rambly, 2am post-midnight film wrap show in which we count down our best and worst of the fest and sing the praises of “Altered States” programmer Curtis Woloschuk (@CurtisWoloschuk) who, in 2 short years, has made the program unmissable.

Cinecast Episode 368 – Marriage as an Extreme Sport

Andrew and Kurt are back together. It’s been rocky these past 30 days, but they’ve decided to give their relationship another go. We’ll be easing back into it – we don’t want to rush anything. So we’re foregoing The 1984 Project this week and keeping The Watch List light and breezy. As it has more or less been David Fincher week across the webs, Kurt takes our lengthy discussion on GONE GIRL and continues the conversation with ZODIAC and SE7EN. Andrew goes back further in time to a galaxy far, far away and re-evaluates George Lucas’ masterpieces also known as Episodes I, II & III. We’ll be back next week with a full throttle show that will include a lengthier watch list, The Karate Kid and at least two theatricals.
