Cinecast Episode 456 – So Far So Good…

The summer of 2016 officially winds down to a stop (thank the maker) as The Toronto International Film Festival comes to a close. Kurt spends a good chunk of this episode going through the best of the fest (from his perspective) and one or two things that didn’t work out quite as well as one would hope. Before we get there, we join Antoine Fuqua and his Magnificent Seven as they attempt to defeat the evil, mining industrialist, Peter Sarsgaard. It’s as close to an A-list cast as one can hope for these days, so does that pay off on the IMAX screen as it once did for the Western Blockbuster (if there ever was such a thing)? Lastly, Andrew has clearly had some time away from recording and producing to see quite a fair number of films. And breezes through a half-dozen of those before the boys call it a done deal. Regrets for not tying off the DePalma retrospective with a Scarface ribbon this week as promised; though that is in the works for next episode.

Mamo 455: Vulvaesque

mamo-tiff16

We almost made it out of TIFF 2016 without ever doing a show, but not quite! Joined (and prompted) by special guest star Shelagh Rowan-Legg, we have a look at a couple of remarkable genre films about women – RAW and THE UNTAMED – before diving into MOONLIGHT and the question of representation, as things finally begin to move forward.

As mentioned in the show:

    Cowabunga and booyakasha! We’ve got a great cross-over episode this week with the folks over at SUPERHERO SAMPLER and it’s all about TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!!! We’re talking the 2007 TMNT with Elliot Campos and then tomorrow on the Sampler we’re joining him to discuss the Season 2 episode “Invasion of the Squirrelanoids” from the 2012 TMNT series on Nickelodeon. You won’t want to miss it!

    Cinecast Episode 455 – The Reitman Side of the Line

    Right from the outset we have to apologize for the sometimes dodgy sound problems. The actual quality of the sound is pretty good… when it’s there. Due to the unco___s of the north woods, some of our discussion ____ and go. Much like this week’s DePalma _____ film, you’ll _____ fill in some of the blanks on _____ own. Speaking of that, for our (nearly) final DePalma retrospective review, we hit up his most recent film from 2012 starring Noomi Rapace and Naomi Watts entitled simply, Passion. It encapsulates much of what DePalma does so well in a tight, 90-minute “not-so-erotic” thriller. Next up, we found that we have our very own film maker here in the third row. David Brook is editor on a UK based film that he’s been warning us for months would eventually come across our desks. And now that it’s finally here, we’re so happy that it did! Powerhouse performances alongside competent direction and story telling revitalize the faux-documentary sub genre. Have a listen. Lastly, as if there wasn’t enough talk of pedophilia in this show, Andrew tackles a couple films that deal with the issue in very different ways… and in extreme variances of success. Kurt has a couple of TIFF pre-screens that the embargo hammer keeps us from discussion too much, but it rounds out a pretty nice Watch List for this week. We’ll see you all again post-TIFF!

    After the Credits Episode 195: September Preview

    Andrea Arnold FTW. Every. Single. Time.

    Andrea Arnold FTW. Every. Single. Time.

    Chalk this up to a cautionary tale. When Dale (Letterboxd), Colleen and I (Letterboxd) gathered last week to record this show, IMDb seemed to be having some sort of crisis of database management, showing movies that were already out as new releases and leaving out a bunch of other titles. This week, the glitch seems to have been fixed but as a result, we missed a number of titles which are (apparently) opening this month.

    If anyone out there can recommend another release schedule which may be more accurate, please let us know. As for this episode… the movies we DID talk about are listed below.

    Cinecast Episode 454 – What Won’t You Be Having?

    We apologize profusely for the weird sound issues on this episode. We got a new rig in the studio and it might take an episode or three to get all of the kinks worked out. So please bear with us. In the meantime, we’ve got some good stuff to talk about this week. Indie “horror” kicks it up a notch in the silent but deadly, Don’t Breathe (SPOILERS!). Next up, the tragically underseen Hell or High Water (SPOILERS!) recalls some other contemporary westerns and steals from all over the place, yet still feels surprisingly fresh. Like we say on the show, if this ain’t on our top ten list at the end of the year, get ready for a helluva final three months in the cinema for 2016. Our DePalma retrospective continues this week with the delightfully crappy, Snake Eyes. How about that one continuous take for an opening eh? And how about that hurricane performance? We finish off with Kubrick making funny out of not funny, Mel Gibson doing what Gibson does best (getting angry and blowing things up) and some joyous music making from John Carney. Next week will see more DePalma and probably some Scandinavian genre fare from Stellan Skarsgård.
