[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #a9a883;”] T [/dropcap]here are a few people out there who say it might actually be all a ginormous opium dream. And without Matt Gamble around to complain about this tactic, who can really dispute it? This is of course Sergio Leone’s masterpiece(?) featuring Robert DeNiro and James Woods as delinquent Jews in Brooklyn, Once Upon a Time in America which is talked about at length for this week’s 1984 Project.
Before that, however, Kurt and Andrew are at odds on the legitimacy of David Michôd’s post apocalyptic art-yarn The Rover. Hint: It’s all about the last 2 minutes, kids. The Watch List this week includes J.J. Abrams, Sam Fuller, Rosario Dawson and some seriously generic bullshit that wastes Jeff Goldblum. Being the end of June, we add an extra chapter this week to talk about our favorite films of 2014. Also, some of the years disappointments and surprises so far and the arbitrariness/difficulty of making these kinds of list.
This is what we call classic-style Cinecast episode: Where Kurt & Andrew just flying casual, occasionally taking a moment to pull up the IMDb, and shooting the breeze about movies.
