After the Hype #82 – The Amazing Spider-Man 2



Bryan and Jon are back after a week off and ready to delve into Sony’s THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. They discuss Jamie Foxx’s interesting take on Electro, as well as one of the more iconic scenes in comic book history. There’s a lot to talk about here so strap on your web-slingers, grab some cold medicine, and get ready to be hit in the face with a sewer cover. Hrm. That sounded better in my head.

Cinecast Episode 376 – 2014 in Review: Ski Lifts & Psychological Rape

We needed a referee. Seriously. And unless it’s Jesse “The Body” Ventura, we might as well not even bother. The rampages on 2014-in-film are epic: Battles are fought, won, lost and lines are drawn in the sand (Cross this line, you DO NOT…) Also, Jim Laczkowski from The Director’s Club Podcast is here to help us figure out Inherent Vice. Is it “pure shit” or “something that needs to be seen 18 times to enjoy”? And where does Matt Gamble come down within the argument? Shortly after tackling the critical darling that seems to be Selma, we look at all of the trends and highs and lows of 2014: from lack of strong female performances to computer desktop horror to the importance of ski lifts and dog revenge. Everything culminated in our annual top ten list and figuring out the odds (or lack thereof) of best picture winner.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

After The Hype #81 – Maleficent



This week Bryan and Jon are joined by Chewie and Sam as they discuss the polarizing Angelina Jolie vehicle MALEFICENT. They discuss the problem areas (there are many), as well as point out the things that turned out better than expected (there are few). Note there are some audio issues. We did what we could. Blame those stupid fairies.

Trigger warning for discussion of rape in context to the “wing” scene.
