Cinecast Episode 408 – Enjoy the Ineptitude

And so it is that we weed through the dregs that are the end of August. So much so, that Kurt refuses to join us for the beginning of this episode in lieu of getting to hang out with Guillermo del Toro for a screening of an early Hitchcock picture (more on that later…). In Kurt’s absence, Matt and Andrew lament our experiences with Nima Nourizadeh’s American Ultra and Aleksander Bach’s piece of shit known as Hitman: Agent 47.

But what better way to rekindle the passion, than to look back over the past half decade (kinda) and embrace (or berate) each other for our top ten picks for the “best” films of the last 5+ years?

Then we feel the need to at least mention a title or two (both old and new) in the Watch List – A moral panic crime thrillers, Nazi Germany and the latest power-house performances from Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro. So, love and FFs (you’ll have to listen to decode that acronym) all around then, folks!

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

I, Claudius Podcast [Episode XII: Old King Log]

 

As the sun sets on old Claudius and the series, Curtus and Natticus discuss the last act of a fool, the breadth of these past 75 years, and what possibilities may be uncovered in the future.

 

 
Kurt Halfyard and Nat Almirall don their togas, raise their wine cups, and ogle the dancing girls to bring you this special microcast on the classic 1976 television series I, Claudius. Travel back to Ancient Rome and witness the tumultuous lives of the Caesars — the billowing reign of the great Augustus; the stark perversities of Tiberius; the wanton cruelty of Caligula; and the trials of Claudius.

The series is regarded as one of the finest television has ever produced, and, nearly forty years after airing, remains as influential and innovative, shocking and witty as ever. Countless shows such as “Game of Thrones” owe it a massive debt, as do the many actors whose careers it either launched or propelled, among them Derek Jacobi, John Hurt, Patrick Stewart, John Rhys-Davies, Brian Blessed, Sian Phillips, and many more.
