Cinecast Episode 460 – The Secret Handshake of Quality

American Honey leads this week’s discussion and the boys are wowed by the performance of Sasha Lane and Andrea Arnold’s ability to artistically and enthusiastically capture this certain sub-section of the American “Dream.” Moving quickly into comedy, we’re excited to have more Christopher Guest on our plate; even if it is ten years in the making. Does Mascots disappoint or exceed? Lastly, while “Game of Thrones” is on break, HBO continues to churn out top-notch content. This fall it is an extended take on Michael Crichton’s “Westworld” complete with a big budget and an animatronic Micheal Wincott. Needless to say, the sprawling nature of the show, the graphic violence and sex and the interesting questions it raises about humanity, robotics, corporate America and God are really up the proverbial alley of your humble hosts. For a Watch List this week, Kurt got out to see more from The Toronto After Dark Film Festival with Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Creepy (a Japanese version of The ‘burbs of all things!) while Andrew needed more of the western genre and opted to go top tier with Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West.

Welcome to the final chapter in our month of LOW BUDGET HORROR REMAKES! We’re joined by Graham Mason and Evan Scott Russell to talk the found footage movie that started it all: THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Recoil in horror as we take you on a journey of diminished returns and a not-nearly-as-enjoyable experience as the first time we saw it in the theater.

Cinecast Episode 459 – De-Scarify

Some differences of opinions on this week’s episode. Because Gamble is not here, we are civil about it and it never comes to blows – sorry about that. We might try to step things up a notch on the tension scale for future episodes, but perhaps we will stay in casual discussion mode for a while. At any rate, this week we are reviewing Benna Fleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, et. al. in Gavin O’Connor’s The Accountant. Next up, we pre-cover a little bit of Toronto After Dark Film Festival with their Friday screening of The Lure.

For The Watch List, both of the guys look back a month or two at previous 2016 releases. Kurt is hopeful that there is an extended version of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children out there somewhere to enjoy, while Andrew is kind of wishing that Nerve never existed in the first place. As a quick side tangent, Kurt relished Thirteen Days after last week’s discussion. Andrew secretly watched most of it again too.

After the Credits Episode 198: VIFF Dispatch #3

viff2016

That’s a wrap! VIFF has come and gone in a whirlwind. It’s hard to believe two weeks of movie watching is already gone and though this year I didn’t manage to see quite as many movies as I’d hoped for, I mainly managed to make good choices and didn’t see too much I didn’t like.

In this final dispatch from the festival I’m (@themarina) joined by regular festival correspondent Bill Harris (@soundjam69) of Green Screen of Death, and friend of the show Lisa (who has appeared on our last few VIFF wrap shows) to count down our favourite movies of the festival.

After the Credits Episode 197: VIFF Dispatch #2

viff2016

We actually recorded this show earlier this week but things have been so crazy, it’s only going up today. Lucky for you, the festival is almost over at this point so we’ll be returning to our regularly scheduling posting in the coming weeks. Anywho…

In this dispatch, I’m (@themarina) joined by festival corespondent Bill Harris (@soundjam69) of the Green Screen of Death to talk about some more movies.

We’ll be coming at you with one final show in the coming days to wrap up the fest and count down our favorite films. Until then, be sure to follow-us on twitter, follow the festival hashtag #VIFF and check out the festival website for screening information – VIFF repeats have been announced and screenings will continue into next week!

Cinecast Episode 458 – The Opposite of a Pass

Kurt and Andrew get into a little bit smaller film this week with Joshua Marston’s Complete Unknown in which it’s kind of unnecessary to praise Michael Shannon at this point, but we do reckon with the fascinating filmography of one Rachel Weisz and come to agree that she’s one of the more interesting big name actresses working today. Next up, Kurt dives into the multi-plex for some Big Hollywood thriller with Emily Blunt and her train riding. Sorry folks, it’s not as exciting as it sounds. Next up, apparently The Light Between Oceans is too depressing for even our computers to listen to and so it decides to cut out some of what Kurt is saying. We get the gist though and despite divisive opinion, he manages to convince Andrew it’s worth a watch. Lastly, Andrew goes back to revisit a sequel to one of his more beloved films, Bill and Ted. This week, those crazy kids find themselves going to hell, heaven, purgatory and wouldn’t ya know it, the future! But does it work as a film in 2016? And finally, Kevin Costner makes a triumphant return to the Cinecast when we talk once again about the greatness of the Kennedy administration – or at least how it’s portrayed on screen in Thirteen Days. Hashtag better than Stone/Morris.

Mamo 457: OWN’d

Mamo!

Welcome back to Mamo! Join us for a far-ranging discussion that starts with Donald Trump, Devin Faraci, and complicity in rape culture; wraps its arms around Ava DuVernay’s 13th and Queen Sugar and the proper use of one’s “power list” capital; and gets, generally, into where we are right now.
