Cinecast Episode 311 – As The Furious Turns

A the fifth Fast and Furious sequel speeds into the multiplex, Kurt and Andrew go deep into the nuance and complex character interactions that have defined the last 12 years of this franchise. OK, not so much. Instead we ask questions about Spanish airport design, what becomes of the 100 commuter funerals after the credits roll, and just how well one can control London surveillance cameras these days. It’s easy to pick on the story inanities of the Furious Franchise, but we do take time to admire the 2nd unit elements of the film, and the editing of parallel action which are excellent. Andrew talks the new Arrested Development season up on Netflix, Kurt is all over the map in trying to parse the motivation and execution of Ridley Scott’s Director’s Cut of Kingdom of Heaven. Frank Capra gets some show time with Arsenic & Old Lace and the cultural impact of It’s A Wonderful Life.

Cinecast Episode 263 – A Little More NOS

 
You thought the comment section for our review of Pixar’s Brave was brash? Wait until Matt Gamble can actually use his voice. His attempts at putting Kurt into his place is always entertaining and Kurt goes for a Dude-ish zen approach to defend the latest Pixar from such quick dismissal. There is love for the rather unusual pairing of Keira Knightley and Steve Carrell in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and after all the harping on Brave, 100% forgiveness for the silly fun that is Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Throwing horses apparently goes further than Bear pratfalls.

Being the halfway point of 2012, we indulge in our need to put together five lists and the gang all throws out their ‘Best of 2012 – So Far’ choices. A quick watch list involves Frankenstein, The other September 11th, fast cars, Jordana Brewster and Louis C.K. It’s a packed episode, so give it a whirlybird on your electronical doodad!
