There are things to love and things that weren’t pulled off quite as lovely as we would have hoped, but all-in-all we’re both fairly satisfied with what we got. Which was a friend with a cleft asshole. Rather than dealing with the multi-plex more than he has to, Kurt settles under the covers for a lengthy YouTube series on deserted malls. Andrew reminisces with his young manhood and going to the movies with his father and then sticking with the home invasion theme from last week, somewhat enjoys watching Keanu Reeves channel Nicolas Cage (ala The Wickerman). We look ahead to next week and determine Ken Loach will likely beat out Tom Cruise at the movies… at least for the purposes of our discussion anyway.

Get Your Cast to Mars – Bonus Episode: Life And Covenant Life and Covenant http://www.rowthree.com/2017/06/04/get-your-cast-to-mars-life-and-covenant/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/06/04/get-your-cast-to-mars-life-and-covenant/#respond Mon, 05 Jun 2017 00:33:51 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=91563

Get Your Cast To Mars was originally a three part (+ bonus episode) micro-podcast focusing on the planet Mars in the movies. Matthew Brown and Kurt Halfyard considered the red planet as an image, an idea, and a somewhat rare place visited in the cinema (and Television) of the past 100 years.

Like humanity itself, we just can’t leave well enough alone! Welcome to our ultra-casual (no introductions, we just drop you right in the middle of the experience) and long promised bonus episode to Season 2! While the second season focused on National Geographic’s MARS docudrama-mini and all that was fine and nice, we couldn’t help but check in in Trump-era 2017 to talk about Mars as an evolving infection. As per Season 1’s bonus episode the lion-share is on Sir Ridley Scott’s evolving Alien franchise. To be on topic, somewhat, there is also some discussion about Daniel Espinosa’s LIFE.

Consider this bonus episode the capstone to our two-season-and-done micro-podcast. We hope you enjoy this extra edition as much as we did the strong black coffee and savoury biscuits, while recording at Toronto’s Sumach Espresso.

Viewing Syllabus: Life (2017) and Alien: Covenant (2017).

Wonder Woman is here, and we dive deep into the suddenly-refreshing waters of the DCEU – with additional talk of Batman, the Justice League, Aquaman, and the cult of narrative around projects of this scale. Plus, Price’s Disney boycott finally worked, and with Sense8 on its way out, peak TV may have finally peaked.

SHE ARRIVES!

Forget “endless summer.” We’re officially into endless June.

I mean, how many movies can you possibly release in a month? Apparently many though how many will actually be seen by any great number of people remains to be seen. Still, June offers up a little something for everyone so there is that to get excited about.

Join Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) as we jump deep into the abyss of June to break down what’s coming on a weekly basis.

Also, much fangirling from me about Wonder Woman.

Luckily Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton step in to hopefully offer up something militarily wondrous over the Memorial Holiday weekend with War Machine. But does the material match up to the cast/performances? Also, while The Bad Batch does not hit theaters for a month or so, we managed to get into a sneak peek screening and so have a decent discussion on Ana Lily Amirpour’s sophomore effort. It’s one of those films (with empirical evidence provided herein) that requires a second watch to truly appreciate. The Watch List has a documentary double-dose, a 90s Oscar contender, home invasion meets slasher flick, the capture of Osama Bin Laden and we close it all off with some joyful misogyny courtesy of India.

We’ve come full circle. The Cinecast started with an argument on Alien and almost ten years later it continues with an argument about Alien: Covenant (SPOILERS!). Almost ninety minutes of chatting about the inner-workings of Ridley Scott’s brain and his plan for the current state of, and future of the Alien franchise. Something things to love, some things that aren’t quite as lovely. But rest assured with double the Fassbender, there is a lot to discuss here. After that, we try to rank out the order of Fincher’s filmography should be exposed to children after some talk on Zodiac. Our beloved Romancing the Stone makes another Cinecast appearance as well as Mendelsohn and Reynolds grinding through Mississippi. And hey Tarantino’s breakout hit is actually a master class in editing. We talk about the kids’ experience with “R” rated material and remember our own childhoods and being turned away from the multiplex for not having the proper ID.

Turns out the Alien franchise is a nice morning warm-up and we’re happy to share it with you. But beware of face-huggers and SPOILERS! As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 482 – A Six Demon Bag http://www.rowthree.com/2017/05/08/cinecast-episode-482-a-six-demon-bag/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/05/08/cinecast-episode-482-a-six-demon-bag/#comments Mon, 08 May 2017 06:32:03 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=91325 Two movies could not be more different in tone. First up is an indie horror from a first time director who has made a minor masterpiece in Hounds of Love. Next up is a SPOILER review of the rainbow psychedelia that is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II. Kurt saw some fireworks at HotDocs; and a hobby horse revolution among other things. Andrew revisited his favorite Ted Jonathan Demme film, turned his brain off with the third xXx movie and then perused the entire history of film over the past seven days. It was a busy week for both the guys, but there’s always time to record a show – even if it is eight in the morning.

Last meal?

We have officially entered summer movie season and this year, it seems the studios are really entrenching themselves in the concept that if a tentpole is opening on any given weekend, nothing else can open for at least two weeks because they won’t make any money.

At least that’s what it feels like looking at this month’s calendar which includes a couple of potentially huge blockbusters spread a few weeks apart with only a few titles of interest to tide viewers over.

Join us as Dale (Letterboxd), Colleen and I (Letterboxd) look at what’s coming in May.

Luckily Andrew got to join in the mix this year and help with the discussion on shoe shiners in the delightful Shiners and with the glorious 78/52 in which talking heads analyze Hitchcock’s infamous shower scene in his classic and most well known film, Psycho. But before we get to all that, the multiplex has been only somewhat watchable with no one (wisely) wanting to compete with The Furious of the Seven. We find things to like about The Lost City of ZED but also a lot of issues with the film making. Next up, Anne Hathaway fights inner demons and giant robots in the surprisingly dark Colossal, which is basically a mishmash of Pacific Rim and Rachel Getting Married. Andrew’s watch list includes Oscar-bait mediocrity, a horrible (or terrific depending on which host you ask) comedy remake and Joss Whedon’s dry run at “Firefly”/Serenity. There are some tangents on casinos, senior discounts, Jonathan Demme and legalizing marijuana along the way. Classic Cinecast… We hope you enjoy listening as much as we did conversing.

Building on comments in episode 463 (“Uber Iger”), we have another look at the political landscape that Disney is influencing, with an eye on the long game re: representation, diversity, and globalization. Is a billionaire vs. billionaire rumble coming? Plus, many special guest stars!
