Mamo 402: It’s Worth The Drive To Ebertfest, Part 1 – Goodbye To Language

Mamo!

It’s a Mamo walk-and-talk, live on the streets of Champaign Illinois! We’ve returned to the Roger Ebert Film Festival for the third time, and take the opportunity to roundly question the validity of Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye To Language. We’ll report in a few more times over the next couple days as we work our way through this year’s program. Plus, recommendations for pie!

Cinecast Episode 389 – Apple Pie Enema

 
Kurt and Andrew discuss the filmography of Noah Baumbach in light of his latest midlife-crisis dramedy, While We’re Young. *SPOILERS* abound, but also there are many tangents on parenting and childless relationships, raising chickens indoors, cultural appropriation and a plea to stop with the ‘can a documentary be truth’ conversation that should have ended a decade ago. Otherwise, we like the movie.

“Game of Thrones” is back, and we break down the opening episode scene by scene (*SPOILERS*). Kurt flips out about how stagnant the Mother of Dragons thread of the show has become, but otherwise, we are immensely excited to have the HBO’s most popular show back on the table for weekly discussion.

Andrew is doing the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival, and discussions on a couple of the titles, including The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared (tangents on Forrest Gump and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) as well as a quite detailed love-in for The Clouds of Sils Maria (with lengthy tangents on the career of Olivier Assays, Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart).

On the Watch List, Andrew watches both Gone In Sixty Seconds movies back to back, and we tangent briefly about Death Proof and the year 1974 as it applies to car-chase movies. While we are in the 1970s, we also take a long look at Nic Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and its lasting effect on horror, sex scenes and the fracturing of space and time through editing.

Kurt also talks briefly about Ardman Studio’s Shaun The Sheep as well as the Trevor Noah documentary, You Laugh, But It’s True (with a further tangent on the current South Africa injection into American culture.)

Message: There are lots of side-tangents in this free-flowing episode of the Cinecast. As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

After the Hype #91 – Battle of the Bonds

ATHlogo_temp3bondbattle

 

This week Bryan and Jon are joined by Graham to discuss which Bond reigns supreme. Is it DIE ANOTHER DAY (Bryan’s choice), FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (Jon’s choice), or GOLDENEYE (Graham’s choice)?

Does Daniel Craig have what it takes to oust Sean Connery as THE BEST BOND? Did Bryan, Jon, and Graham pick from too small a sample size? Is this all an excuse to gush over some really fun films? Will they do another Battle of the Bonds later?

God, just listen to the episode already.
