After the Credits Episode 169: April Preview

Not soon enough!

Not soon enough!

It’s starting. Though we’ve had a handful of interesting (and good) titles in the first few months of the year, it looks like we’re finally into good movie season with a couple of big titles opening in April. The summer is about to kick off big time and Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) dig into the first batch of “summer” movies.

Other stuff we talk about:

Cinecast Episode 386 – Singing From My Hymn Book

 
Bread and butter. The Salvation is ours this episode, and it is all Mads Mikkelsen will get from the dawn of the oil era in the western United States. The Danish Western shot in South Africa plays as a metaphor for USA style Capitalism – a revenge movie where there will definitely be blood (even if it is all CGI) engenders a good hour of (*spoiler filled*) conversation. Our viewpoints differ, but ultimately the same conclusion is reached: the film is exploitative and pretty decent even if it is often unpleasant.

From there, The Watch List takes over as Kurt catches a few moments from the new Pixar feature and cautiously claims that they may have climbed from the pit of safe mediocrity that they have chosen to dwell in over the past few years. Andrew wanted more of Eva Green’s assets (her voice) and tries the 300 side-quel on for size. Kurt finds one of the key inspirations for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom a sweet little puppy-love slice of life called, Melody. We close out the show with the much talked about doc-mini, “The Jinx,” which is catching headlines and turning heads, and we are not immune to the charms and the crutches of documentary film making.

Mamo #399: It Follows That It Follows Would Do Well

Mamo!

OK here’s what happened: we’d just finished recording a new episode of Let’s Scare Matthew Price to Death with our friend Dan Gorman, when we got to talking about It Follows, horror movies at the box office, and why every big movie in the genre seems to be treated like the biggest thing ever. What… er… followed was a pickup game of Mamo with one of our favourite guest stars!

Cinecast Episode 385 – The Way of all Flesh

row31-640

 
There are a lot of rookies out there. The Cinecast ain’t one of them. We’ve seen this before. We’ve seen that before. And we’ve also seen this. And somehow, despite everything discussed today basically being re-hashes of things that have come before, we’re retain the capacity to be impressed, inspired, encouraged and offer kindness. Andrew and Kurt consider the immediate future of the Cinecast as well as the long term future and then in the spirit of re-hashing old things, bitch about pre-show cinema commercials for old time sake. If you put a dollar (or more) in our PayPal, we’ll send you a copy of the show sans the commercial bitching. In The Watch List this week: classic Dr. Who, children being burned alive, whistle blowers, Wes Anderson plot holes and Zach Braff screwing college girls. It’s all here glorious audio format if you only can believe… in a little magic.

Hi guys! Sorry for skipping a week. Allow us to make it up to you by offering an episode free from context. Or was it an episode about context? Dang. I may or may not have forgotten the topic before starting this episode. Fling your umbrage at will. Mmm. Umbrage.

Let’s Scare Matthew Price To Death!

Our friends over at The Modern Superior Podcast network are hosting side projects from both of the Mamo! Matt’s. Matt Brown’s SuperZero focuses on all things super hero. Matt Price on the other hand, is asking a number of podcasting pals to recommend horror films to him for Let’s Scare Matthew Price To Death.

Mr. Price was generous enough to let me participate in the second episode of the show, which went online today. The movie, as indicated by the picture above is Kim Jee-Woon’s remarkable haunted house slash familial meltdown horror, A Tale Of Two Sisters

Hop on over there and give it a listen.

Cinecast Episode 384 – Feeling Uncomfortable is Great

row31-640

 
A surprising amount of agreement this week. Yes Matt Gamble is here which always brings a certain amount of animosity and incredulity to the show. Yet there seems to be an underlining and approving theme of “less than great” to the entire show. That’s about it. There are politics at play. The music industry at odds with itself. An anti-Rom-Com. Fucked up celebrities seeing ghosts. Giant stone tablets from God and Hugh Jackman drawing a firearm during league play.
