Get Your Cast to Mars – Pre-Enactment

Get Your Cast To Mars was originally a three part (+ bonus episode) micro-podcast focusing on the planet Mars in the movies. Matthew Brown and Kurt Halfyard considered the red planet as an image, an idea, and a somewhat rare place visited in the cinema of the past 100 years.

We are back for a second season focusing on Mars on Television – specifically, the Ron Howard/Brian Grazer produced six part mini-series that began airing on National Geographic and FX in November 2016. We are sticking with the three part format again for the purposes of this podcast, looking at the series in pairs. Here we look at the unusual nature of the show (hybrid doc/fiction) and its aspirational tone.

Cinecast Episode 462 – A Miracle to Come

Yes, 2016 has been shitty from just about any angle you can look at it from. Yet here at the Cinecast we try to remain hopeful and optimistic for the future. In movie world, the last two months of the year are looking to shape up quite nicely and it seems an understatement to say that the arrival of Arrival was fortuitous in its timing. The themes are probably exactly what the world needs right now. We discuss at length (SPOILERS!). In the Watch List, it’s not surprisingly just comfort food for the boys; i.e. movies we’ve discussed many times in the past, but felt the need to revisit over the past week.
