Interstellar (2014): a recap (part 1 of 3)
“Despite the epic length, most of the cast will turn out to have existed to explore ideas or play second fiddle to the father/daughter relationship.”Boyhood (2014)
“While a lot of people will see it due to all the awards and accolades it received in the last year, this is primarily a film made by a cinephile for cinephiles.”An American Werewolf in London (1981)
In this episode, we take a look at the classic '80s horror/comedy An American Werewolf in London, directed by John Landis. We'll look at the Landis's inspirations and what effect the film had on his future directing career, including Michael Jackson's "Thriller". We'll also look at the Oscar-winning makeup effects by Rick Baker, and why they make the film so unforgettable. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
In this episode, we take nearly one hour to look at the beloved live-action/animation hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit! We'll cover everything from the inception of the original novel, to the years it took to get to the big screen, the century-old techniques used to bring the story to life, and the film's expansive 2-disc DVD set.21 Jump Street (2012)
“21 Jump Street is a meta-film that laughs at its very existence.”Django Unchained (2012)
“Will people look back on Django Unchained as Tarantino's masterwork? Most likely not, as Pulp Fiction is so culturally ingrained, and Inglourious Basterds is much more daring. However, Django is that rare film that just works on every level.”
