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.

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

Trailer: Jane Got A Gun

JaneGotAGun

If we are a tad late posting this trailer for Natalie Portman western Jane Got A Gun, it is apropos of the project from the very start. Scottish auteur, Lynne Ramsay was originally to direct the project, but at the beginning of shooting, she resigned just prior to day one of shooting. Much of the supporting cast walked with her, and now we have the Gavin O’Connor, Joel Edgerton version, which involves a lot of ominous talk, a lot of gunfire, and somehow, a hot air balloon. Against considerable odds, the film is now finished and coming soon to a theatre near you.

The 2015 Western bonanza continues. Check out the trailer below.
