Cinecåst Episode 503 – Once Upön å Time in Montreäl

If you’re a regular listener to The Cinecast of yesteryear, you’ll know that Kurt’s been on Andrew’s case since forever to get his ass up to Montreal for the annual Fantasia Film Festival. Apparently all it took was the better part of a decade and the “closing” of RowThree to secure a festival badge and train ticket. And from what we can remember, it was a pretty good time with friends and flicks; a full recap is attached hereto. But first, folk horror rears its evil head in Scandanavia with Ari Aster’s Midsommar and Quentin Tarantino wows us with his ninth tenth ninth(?) newest film with yet another foray into revisionist history. This time it’s late 60s California in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. So don your flower crowns, light up a Red Apple® and sit back and enjoy; it’s time for the Cinecast Special!

Cinecast Episode 502 – The End of 2018

We miss it. So we gotta do it. And what better time to get the Cinecast brothers back together than for the end of the year recap? After some much needed catch-up and chit-chat, we talk about some of the themes and overall thoughts on what a great year 2018 has been for cinema… and what “cinema” even means in 2018. A top performances list is almost exclusively ruled by women this year and the boys find a lot of common ground in their final top ten films of the year. Apologies in advance for literally yelling at you for not liking Widows, but that’s your own fault.

Cinecast Episode 501 – Irrelevantly Relevant

We thought we were done. You thought we were done. And we are. But we got a little homesick for some good ol’ fashioned Cinecast magic. And today’s films up for discussion could not have scratched that itch any better. It’s been close to ten months since the boys last spoke and so naturally we need to take some time to play catch-up with our cinematic lives over that time. 2017 stand outs, what’s been on the radar for 2018 and so forth. And then we get into full SPOILER discussions of Boots Riley’s magnetic Sorry to Bother You as well as Tom Cruise’s stunt extravaganzza, Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Kurt, once again, visited Montreal for the always entertaining “Fantasia Film Festival” while Andrew stayed home and watch Kevin Costner on the small screen. The Cinecast is resurrected one more time and there’s a lot to catch up on here folks, so let’s get to it…

After the Credits Special Episode: This is Not the End!

While it’s true that RowThree.com is going static after a decade of updates, a milestone by any measure, we’re not done!

After the Credits has a new home and we’re happy to announce that going forward, you can find new episodes of the podcast at atcpod.ca beginning with the December preview which will drop next week followed by some coverage from the Whistler Film Festival.

Come January, we’ll be re-launching Girls on Pop and Dale has been cooking up a side-show for a few months that we’re hoping to launch in the very near future – all this to say that we’re not going anywhere!

For the most part, you won’t need to make any changes to your feed but if you don’t see fresh content popping up before November 30th, or to prevent missing any awesomeness, update your feed to http://atcpod.ca/feed/.

Cinecast Episode 500 – You’re On Your Own From Here…

Ten damn years! The Cinecast has been around for ten years totaling (more than) 500 episodes. We’ve argued over, bickered about, tongue-bathed, laughed about and quoted movies for close to 2000 recorded hours. We’ve made loads of new friends, lost loved ones, earned degrees, visited other continents, entered the covenant of marriage, written books, attended countless festivals, interviewed celebrities and even starred in a couple of low budget films in that time. And the amount of alcohol consumed… I don’t even want to think about it. We have some of the most devoted listeners in podcasting and I have to believe we’re in the running for most hours recorded of one series in the history of podcasting at this point. Therefore, of course we have a good hour of reminiscing and say thanks to a few important folks. But as we hit this momentous milestone we, for the most part, treat it like any other episode except for one big in-house announcement. We have three theatrical reviews: Thor: Ragnorak, The Killing of a Sacred Deer and Murder on the Orient Express. Then we take some time to look back at the year that is 2017 which of course includes a top five list. We also fulfill on a years-old promise (or at least half of it) with a retro-review of Tyrannosaur in return for a generous donation from listener Len Fearnside.

This is The Cinecast 500. Yes, have some.

After the Credits Episode 220: November Preview

Summer love

We missed October due to festival and scheduling craziness but I’d like to think we more than made up for it with a couple of bonus episodes from VIFF.

The crew is, however, reunited this month as Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) look ahead at November which is a mishmash of everything from action adventure (Thor: Ragnarok) and family fare (Coco) to awards hopefuls (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri).

Cinecast Episode 499 – Automat

Blade Runner 2049 fixes some things about the original 1982 film. This is exactly why Andrew is happy and why Kurt is pissed off. Also, is it basically a remake in disguise? The boys dissect. Up next, what if The Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino were married and their child was a gore hound? You’d have S. Craig Zahler and Brawl in Cell Block 99 would be his sophomore effort.

Kurt is back from Sitges and we get a little taste of that experience at the beginning of the show. Towards the end of the episode, Andrew has been turning off his brain with mostly junk cinema while Kurt saw his favorite film of the year. Have a listen and make your case/point in the comments below.

After the Credits Episode 217: VIFF Dispatch #1

The Vancouver International Film Festival is back for another year and with it, our semi-regular VIFF dispatches.

For our first check-in from the festival, I’m (Letterboxd) joined by festival correspondent and friend of the podcast Mr. Bill Harris (Twitter), whom you can regularly find on The Green Screen of Death podcast. Bill is nearly 3 weeks and 2 festivals into his current run and he’s got some great coverage of the first half of the festival including insights into some of the most lauded movies of the year so far. I chime in with the occasional insight because frankly, I simply haven’t seen as many movies.

We’ll be back with another dispatch from the fest in a day or two but for now, check out our overview of the first 10 days of VIFF.

Cinecast Episode 498 – Completionist

Thanks for dropping by for another edition of The RowThree Cinecast; inching ever closer to the big Quincentenary episode. These week we play it fast and loose, as does director Doug Liman tend to do with the subject of this week’s main topic, American Made. It ain’t perfect or perhaps even all that memorable, but it sure is a fun way to spend a rainy fall afternoon. Not much time to get to anything else but the boys do each have a pair for The Watch List – well, Andrew has a “Listen List” this week with a new podcast mention. Kurt visits a couple of Cinecast favorites with David Mamet and Denis Villeneuve. Andrew visits one of the six, yes six(!), films of the year to feature a John Denver song in Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire. It’s not a whole lot to go on, but we certainly get some mileage out of it.
