Cinecast Episode 441 – Lust and Aimlessness

nice-guuys-cinecast

Back on track with Shane Black. The boys are able to reconvene this week with not one, but two main theatrical reviews for your spoiler pleasure. We start it off this week with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in a good old fashioned buddy-cop, action/comedy The Nice Guys. It really ties the room together.

Next up is Yorgos Lanthimos’ first English language film, The Lobster. This one is a little bit more difficult to parse out. It stars one Colin Farrell and one Rachel Weiss among others; it is a twisted and comedic (deadpan?) look at love, relationships and dating in a world painted like only this particular director can portray. Kurt and Andrew attempt to hash out what it all means. Kurt revisits the glory days of Saturday morning cartoons and Andrew just wishes he had seven bowls of Captain’s Peanut Butter Crunch.

Mamo 448: Manbaby Boobytits

Mamo!

Do you hear the slurping, mewling sounds of the internet fanboys roiling in disgust (once again) because women exist? It was hard not to get hit by the spray this week as the Cinema Massacre web site (!) achieved the seemingly impossible, and turned GHOSTBUSTERS into the most politicized film release of the year. We tackle the outrage, and then dovetail to this week’s other gender war, #toofemale.

After the Hype #140 – X-Men: The Last Stand Vs. Origins: Wolverine

postbanner2ath_breakdown_x

 

We’re joined by special guests Coy Jandreau and Elliot Campos to talk two of perhaps the worst X-Men films out there – X-MEN: THE LAST STAND & X-MEN: ORIGINS: WOLVERINE – all in celebration of hopefully NOT the worst X-Men film coming out! For our breakdown we make both Coy and Elliot take a film and give us the synopsis. The whole episode is so epic we had to run a little on the long side. Enjoy!

Cinecast Episode 440 – No Selfies at the Orgy

Weather conditions can always be spotted based on Kurt’s drinking habits. This week it’s a smoky IPA, so guess what’s going on outside. Ergo, guess how often we got to the theater. Luckily it’s the digital age and there are zombies to be thwarted. Bo Mikkelson’s What We Become is this week’s subject of discussion. You might think this is just another low-budget, run-of-the-mill zombie flick, but not so fast. There’s more going in this world than run shoot growl die. Susan Sarandon is back in action along with Rose Byrne and J.K. Simmons in The Meddler. Is it perfect for date night? Kurt’s got the answer. There’s time travel on the mnd as the boys grind the gears of Synchronicity. Andrew goes back to very early Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guniess in Kind Hearts and Coronets – a delightfully twisted comedy from the 90s. We do indulge in a little “Between Two Thrones” as well; and it felt good. Also Eyes Wide Shut; what a shock.

This week we’re joined by special guest Alex Marshall-Brown – who did some key stunts for the film and managed to get some set advice from QT himself! Watch as she expertly breaks down the film. Listen as we gush over the dialog, the ultra violence! There’s a lot here, and you don’t want to miss it!

Cinecast Episode 439 – Reality is Highly Overrated

And we’re back! After some jam packed scheduling issues, feverish festivals, sleep deprivation and in-town guests, The Cinecast rises once again. Kurt has a full report on a very successful HotDocs outing and the boys take a special amount of time on our friend, Jay Cheel’s film, How to Build a Time Machine. While Kurt stumbled through Toronto’s documentary scene, Andrew was able to catch up with a bunch of late release festival fare just now hitting theaters in his neck of the woods. These include Jeremy Saulnier’s
Green Room, Tom Hiddleston in the visually striking, High-Rise and one of Kurt’s favorite films of last year, the most excellent Louder than Bombs.

We’re nixing the Game of Thrones talk this season due to scheduling and logistic issues, but that just allows a little more talk about what’s on the “big screen”. Andrew talks Patrick Wilson driving a limo that nearly gets cut in half, the production problems in a female-driven western, Kevin Bacon’s mustache, a documentary on Chris Farley and his very first viewing of a Frank Sinatra film (which was excellent!).

It’s a tight show proving once again the boys can take a couple/three weeks off and have no problem jumping right back into the proverbial saddle. As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
