Sean Baker strikes again!

Sean Baker strikes again!

The summer is now in full swing but where are the summer blockbusters? It seems that the year’s biggest titles have pretty much come and gone but that doesn’t mean all the summer fun is gone – it just means that summer fun looks a little different; a little more mature and more of a mix of arthouse and blockbuster. Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) are dig into the July bag of movies and emerge with a few notables.

Cinecast Episode 401 – The One with Nothing to Talk About

Nothing. Well, damn near nothing. Dope is pretty good. The year is pretty weak at the halfway mark. What else is there to say? Whatever it is, we say it on this show. So have a listen.

Cinecast Episode 400 – A Waterfall of Love

 
After 400 episodes, you might think there would be some animosity, down in the dark recesses of our subconscious. With a special mailbag segment of the show, we get to the bottom of things and it is a wellspring of love and support. Or maybe not, as some listeners think it is a good idea to draw new lines of warring factions with other podcasts (really McNeil?… really!?). Otherwise it is business as usual in the Third Row.

We debate the high water marks of Pixar, past and present, and talk about the margins and the minutiae of their latest endeavor, Inside Out.

We ponder the opening and unconventional first episode of the second season of True Detective. Will it evolve into greatness, or even be worth discussing (or even watching) for an entire season?

Cinecast Episode 399 – You Cannot Rush a Walk of Shame

Welcome…To Jurassic Park World. John Hammond’s vision has finally come to fruition almost 20 years later and, shocker(!), it’s a complete and utter shit show for everyone involved. This is especially so if you are an executive assistant forced to babysit your bosses nephews, or just sitting in a cinema seat watching bad behavior in the audience mirror the bad behavior of park visitors onscreen. From undefined “villains” to unnecessary, slapdash discussions on divorce, the movie wants to have its cake and smash it in your face too. Sigh.

We say farewell to the characters of Westeros for another year as the final episode of Game of Thrones betrays a lot of what the show has stood for in terms of structure and promise. The finale is a bit of cluttered and rushed job. And yet, as the dust settles on the very controversial Season 5, there is a lot to love.

Lastly, we talk John Carpenter’s creature feature set in Antarctica, as well as a plug for another podcast about film background players. Also Netflix’s Bloodline Season 1.
