Cinecast Episode 450 – My Hot Dogs Got Cold

Andrew and Kurt are Bourne again. And while both of them preferred the status quo (Bourne swam off into the moonlight, all was right with the amnesiac super-spy). It was 2007 when Matt Damon said he had no interest in coming back to do any more of these, but the power of Greengrass compels you! The power of Greengrass compels you!

So, here we are with the fifth film in the Bourne franchise, nearly a decade after Bourne popped up on the grid. Some of the principle cast returns, Greengrass is of course back with his shakiest of cams, and there is a whole slew of new and interesting actors added to the mix. Did the new film hit the mark or did it simply squander all the moolah and talent it had going for it? We discuss.

Then it is off to Montreal where Kurt gives the full recap all the films he caught and various sundry adventures he had during his ten-day gallop through the mega-sized genre fest. A small watch list includes Andrew finishing Netflix’ “Stranger Things” and Kurt revisiting the middle chapter of Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy. It is a monster-sized show, but one we think you will enjoy. Have at it!

Cinecast Episode 214 – I Hate that I Know That

We start things off simple. No Kurt. Just some Pirates and Priests. With unpleasantness out of the way, Kurt jumps in with both feet for a indie post-apocalyptic film out of Toronto, a re-evaluation of Inglorious Basterds and Tarantino’s career. Trains and Toni Collette keep the conversation chugging along and with Gamble here, “Game of Thrones” is sort of unavoidable. We all revel in the love for Rip Torn and South Korea before rounding everything out with a talk about sequels that are crazier than a rat in a tin shithouse (ala Caddyshack II and Gremilns II). Nobody dies.

Pirates Whatever Whatever… Oh! Penelope Cruz

I hate the Pirates franchise. The third one was the last straw. Not a chance in hell I’d go back and see a fourth installment. Then something odd happened on this terribly dreary, cold, depressing and crabby afternoon in Minneapolis to interest and cheer me up: the trailer for On Stranger Tides shows up. Yeah, it’s weird I feel this way and the movie will likely be terrible. But here’s a list of reasons why I’m slightly “funned up” and would consider screen hopping into this one:

1) Penélope Cruz
2) No Orloondo Bland
3) Ian McShane
4) Zombies
5) Mermaids
6) New storyline
7) Penélope Cruz
