Mamo 473: Dear White People

As Mamo gets near the end of its first season, we take in the formal mastery of DUNKIRK while wondering aloud: just white people? Really? And at least one of the Matts is a pretty hefty fan of GAME OF THRONES but greets this CONFEDERATE news with a hefty: really, white people? Really?

Cinecast Episode 398 – Crying in the Darkness and Licking the Floor

Outside of the lengthy “Game of Thrones” discussion this week (which covers the last two episodes), we manage to stay pretty spoiler free, despite a main review for part of the 2015 western resurgence in Slow West. Also, Andrew hits the theater for the latest Cameron Crowe joint from Hawaii and the Brian Wilson / Beach Boys biopic, Love & Mercy. On the “television” front, Netflix and Kurt hangout for about 12 hours in the compelling mess that is “Sense8” and Andrew finds enough commuting time to follow-up with Adnan and friends in the “Undisclosed” podcast. It’s a jam packed show full of fire and Australia; yes all of it (copyright Mark Kermode).

Cinecast Episode 396 – Rated ‘R’ for Mood

row31-640

 

It has finally happened. Matt Gamble shows up and forces a co-host to say enough is enough and leave the room. In these parts, it is probably the best way to handle things until cooler heads prevail – which takes a few minutes. You might think is the grotesquery on display in Fury Road or the non-necessity of the Pitch Perfect sequel becoming this weekends box-office champ. But No. Appropriately it is the Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 6. If Beinioff and Weiss, HBO’s show-runners are looking for a reaction, they have gotten it… Things devolve into semantics, call it the “Daybreaker’s Effect.” But fear not, intrepid listener with ringing ears, we move on to happier, less controversial places created by Mike Judge, Neil Marshall and Alfred Hitchcock.

Cinecast Episode 395 – Have an Exit Strategy

The multiplex continues to bore Kurt and Andrew, who have no interest in costumed heroes or a uniformed Reese Witherspoon. So it is off to Argentina for the Oscar nominated anthology film, Wild Tales. Game of Thrones hits the half-way mark and Kurt may have finally convinced Andrew of a) just how tedious things in Meereen have gotten, b) how much Stannis Baratheon has come into his own this season, and c) the power of a good long shot.

The watch-list creates a divide in taste on music and documentary form with Brett Morgan’s Montage of Heck. The strengths and weakness of Wes Craven’s The New Nightmare are discussed, along with a tangent on lost concept over-spill resulting from sold out movies. Don’t Look Now, but there is more Nic Roeg discussion on the Cinecast. As is the case of Kevin Costner, Shawn Levy and the race to the middle(brow). Finally, Alex Gibney’s Scientology doc, Going Clear is compared and contrasted with PTA’s The Master, for dos and don’ts in filmmaking.

Cinecast Episode 394 – Sculpting, Not Puppeteering

Cinecast Classic-style! The same great taste you remember and love. We heed not at the beck and call to assemble with Avengers this week. Mother’s Day is coming, so we need to talk about Mommies. And a Mommy we talk about! Xavier Dolan’s work of wonder, Mommy, is at the top of the heap this week and I can’t think of an episode in which both Kurt and Andrew are as blown away as they are while discussing this picture. From there, the guys talk about “Game of Thrones” (Sandsnakes, Raegar Targatheon, Harpys and Parabolani) and cap off their joint reviews with the not-quite-great Robot & Frank. Quentin Tarantino makes another appearance on the wath list, as does Ender Wiggin, Big Bird and AIDS.

Cinecast Episode 389 – Apple Pie Enema

 
Kurt and Andrew discuss the filmography of Noah Baumbach in light of his latest midlife-crisis dramedy, While We’re Young. *SPOILERS* abound, but also there are many tangents on parenting and childless relationships, raising chickens indoors, cultural appropriation and a plea to stop with the ‘can a documentary be truth’ conversation that should have ended a decade ago. Otherwise, we like the movie.

“Game of Thrones” is back, and we break down the opening episode scene by scene (*SPOILERS*). Kurt flips out about how stagnant the Mother of Dragons thread of the show has become, but otherwise, we are immensely excited to have the HBO’s most popular show back on the table for weekly discussion.

Andrew is doing the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival, and discussions on a couple of the titles, including The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared (tangents on Forrest Gump and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) as well as a quite detailed love-in for The Clouds of Sils Maria (with lengthy tangents on the career of Olivier Assays, Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart).

On the Watch List, Andrew watches both Gone In Sixty Seconds movies back to back, and we tangent briefly about Death Proof and the year 1974 as it applies to car-chase movies. While we are in the 1970s, we also take a long look at Nic Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and its lasting effect on horror, sex scenes and the fracturing of space and time through editing.

Kurt also talks briefly about Ardman Studio’s Shaun The Sheep as well as the Trevor Noah documentary, You Laugh, But It’s True (with a further tangent on the current South Africa injection into American culture.)

Message: There are lots of side-tangents in this free-flowing episode of the Cinecast. As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 356 – Bearfucker

 
Welcome to the time-discombobulated episode of the cineast. First things Last: Kurt’s son number one, Willem joins in for a detailed discussion of Edge of Tomorrow, with emphasis on details and minutiae. It’s tucked at the end of the show. Andrew and Kurt discuss the specifics of the new Rowthree design before getting into the 1984 project with taciturn Chuck Norris and side boob, but slapped in between Gamble joins in for a lighter-on-the-spoilers discussion of the Tom Cruise movie, so we can Live. Die. Repeat. There is a bit of a love-in for the action stylings of Neil Marshall as he helms the penultimate Season 4 episode of Game Of Thrones with an eye for continuity and geography at Castle Black. Finally there is a Watch List where Kurt & Gamble debate (again) the merits of Orange is the New Black. Also: Roger Dodger, Rango, Full Metal Jacket, Blade Runner and Deathproof. So grab your G.O. juice and your copy of Italian Vogue and hop into the fray.

Cinecast Episode 352 – This is What Happens with Progress

 
Though the power of the RowThree fell silent for a couple of days, Andrew and Kurt refused to give in. Andrew talks Locke. Kurt talks some Orson Welles, some Wickerman and some Nuclear Power on this weeks Watch List. Kurt’s 11 year old son Willem joins for a discussion the best performance of Schwarzenegger’s career. And Westeros is in chaos, as always.
