John, Bob and I also discuss director Céline Danhier’s documentary Blank City, which is now playing at Kendal Square, and the latest release from The Asylum, Almighty Thor. Plus our picks of the week, including the new 50th Anniversary blu-ray release of Robert Rossen’s The Hustler (1961) starring Paul Newman.
We recorded this episode at Panera Bread, across the street from the Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline, MA. As always, we tried to find a quite spot to record. Our apologies for any obtrusive background noise.
In this episode, John Black and I discuss four new releases: The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Matthew McConaughey; Limitless, starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro; Jane Eyre, starring Mia Wasikowska; and Paul, a road trip geek-fest showcasing the comedic talents of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Seth Rogan.
This week John and I discuss the new Clint Eastwood-directed paranormal thriller Hereafter. We also go on about Jackass 3D and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which is new to Blu-ray, and, as it so happens, performed each Saturday at midnight at the AMC Lowes Harvard Square Cinema.
In this episode, John and I discuss the new heist film Takers, Neil Marshall’s Centurion, Rob Reiner’s Flipped and Eli Roth’s The Last Exorcism.
As for picks of the week, I opt for the 1971 grindhouse gem Superchick (from Mill Creek Entertainment) and Richard Dreyfuss’ 1977 Oscar winner The Goodbye Girl, while John recommends a collection of documentaries now on DVD from The History Channel and 2009’s Dorian Gray starring Colin Firth.
In this episode, John and I discuss the exploitively horrific Piranha 3D, starring Elizabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Jerry O’Connell and Richard Dreyfuss.
And then we move on to this weeks’ picks: Power Kids (a.k.a . 5 Huajai Hero) – the Taiwanese actioner from the producers of Ong Bak and Chocolate; and Temple Grandin – the HBO Films’ production starring Claire Danes, Catherine O’Hara and Julia Ormond.
I wanted to post Episode 27 much earlier, but … life got in the way. We had it on iTunes last week, so in a way it was already out there. Subscribing on iTunes is the quickest way to receive our new episodes. Think about how good you’ll feel by subscribing to our podcast. Now that’s the feeling!
In this episode, John and I discuss the new blu-ray DVD release of To Live and Die in L.A.. We then go to town on Shrek Forever After, MacGruber and Please Give, which is now playing over at Coolidge Corner.
Oh! And John offers scandalous childhood memories of sneaking into first-run screenings of The Exorcist, A Clockwork Orange, and The Deer Hunter.
