Cinecast Episode 494 – Broken Soundtrack

Art should push buttons. Bigelow does just that with her latest, criminally underseen, “masterpiece” (copyright Kurt Halfyard of RowThree.com), Detroit starring John Boyega, Will Poulter and Anthony Mackie et. al. It’s an intense couple of hours that is frustrating in the best possible way – kind of like this show. On The Watch List this week we talk about Jimmy Iovine’s involvement with DeathRow Records in “The Defiant Ones” as well as the crime thriller, drama, “Ozark”, which is “the best thing Jason Bateman has ever done” (copyright Andrew James of RowThree.com). For a tight show, we pack in a lot of conversation – including an apology to site visitors and listeners.

Cinecast Episode 493- A Beer Commercial

Missing week in the recording schedule can be tough for some podcasts to get over; especially when one of the hosts is out of the country. But not The Cinecast. We trek on, banging out the 80s German jams while we rap about Charlize Theron and Atomic Blonde. Kurt is done with The 2017 Fantasia Film Festival and comes to us with a full report on everything from 4K remastered classics to a $65 Ugandan action picture. Due to some French ISP issues and nosy annoyed neighbors, we had to cut this one a little bit short, but what is in here is golden. Get your notepads ready, this is Cinecast 493!

After the Credits Episode 214: August Preview

💆👉✌️✌️

What on earth is going on this summer? It seems to be start-and-stop with the big summer releases. Just when you think we’re back in the swing of things, we have another off month. It could also just be the fact that this year’s crop of summer movies has done little to impress us – I’m certainly far behind on my viewing and that’s equally due to lack of time as it is to general disinterest.

But we truck on and this month, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) trudge through August’s offerings and dig up one, maybe two, titles which look at least passingly worthy of our attention.

All I have to say is… thank the movie gods for streaming.

Mamo 473: Dear White People

As Mamo gets near the end of its first season, we take in the formal mastery of DUNKIRK while wondering aloud: just white people? Really? And at least one of the Matts is a pretty hefty fan of GAME OF THRONES but greets this CONFEDERATE news with a hefty: really, white people? Really?

Cinecast Episode 492 – The Pride Cry

With Kurt attacking The Fantasia Film Festival head-on, we must keep this one short before the next screening. That said, it might be argued that at this point, a Christopher Nolan film can be considered an event picture. And Dunkirk is most certainly an event – both the historical context and the theatrical screening. So it would be doing the film a disservice not to give it the attention it deserves with a nearly hour long conversation. So we discuss the technical and emotional aspects of everything Nolan excels at with this picture; which some might consider his masterpiece. You’ll get no arguments from us. So we talk Dunkirk and then move on to a couple of Fantasia titles that Kurt has screened thus far. We apologize for the slight audio falters at the beginning, but it is cleaned up after about ten minutes. We’ll be back next week for another shorter show in which we’ll tackle Atomic Blonde and Lady Macbeth.

After the Credits Episode 213: Littlest Hobo Media Spew – June

Oh yeah! We’re loving this 80’s throwback.

The last few weeks have been a little slow in the TV department, almost as if Peak TV also takes a summer break, but thanks to Netlix for a healthy new obsession.

Join us as Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) catch up with what we’ve been watching, listening to and reading over the last few weeks and our current obsession with all things GLOW.

Cinecast Episode 491 – No Acronyms

“Game of Thrones” is back on the air! Feels like it’s been eons since we last left westeros; and if the lines on the faces of many of the actors’ faces is any indication, it has! At any rate, Matt Gamble joins Kurt and Andrew as they dissect the season premiere (s07e01). Before that though, Andrew and Kurt have little to complain about with the final(?) entry in the Planet of the Apes trilogy. We also have a decent Watch List towards the end in which Andrew visits 80s movie star icons, Gamble has taken advantage of his position to see some other current theatrical fare and Kurt has a preview screening for Lady Macbeth. So yeah, it’s a pretty packed show and we manage it as well as three apes possibly could.

Cinecast Episode 490 – The Other Leg

An honored guest has arrived at our table. Despite being the enemy, let’s show him some of our southern hospitality shall we? Yes girls, Ryan McNeil from The Matinee has graced our table with his presence. With their interruptery nature, Kurt and Andrew will try not to cut him off at the legs while we look back at Don Siegel’s 1971 feature, The Beguiled. Simultaneously, and in true R3 multi-task fashion, we review Sofia Coppola’s 2017 feature, The Beguiled. It’s always fun to compare and contrast. From there, we hit The Watch List. Andrew is out as he’s been exploring the galaxy on his Xbox, but Ryan goes about as mainstream as you can get with the new Spider-Man, then does a 180 and digs right into early Olivier Assayas. Kurt drops by the Bong Joon-Ho marathon for some more Okja and Memories of Murder.

Cinecast Episode 489 – The Han Solo Moment

Being that it’s the holiday weekend in ‘merica as well as Maple Syrup-ville, the boys keep it focused on just two movies this week. The event picture that is Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver hit theaters this past week and we dive begrudgingly headlong into that mess. And land on somewhat of a more even keel with the straight-to-Netflix original film, Okja starring Tilda Swinton and Tilda Swinton – and yes, Paul Dano gets a beat down. Watch out for SPOILERS throughout this episode, but it’s a fun mid-morning around the coffee table.
