The Hell With This Podcast #32 - The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

With whispers that Terry Gilliam's ill-fated Don Quixote project might finally see the light of day, we thought we'd dive into another Gilliam film that almost didn't make it to screens: "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus". With the passing of Heath Ledger - half way through production - Gilliam a...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #31 - Prince of Darkness

I'm just going to leave this here: http://www.theofficialjohncarpenter.com/contact/ Looking at that list of representatives looming over him, I'm gonna go on a short limb to say there's no chance in hell he'd ever do our shitty little podcast. I did at least get a pleasant "no" out of Rian Johnson ...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

We ended up seeing Baby Driver. I really enjoyed it. It was different from what I expected from the only trailer I saw for it, but in a good way. Odd combination of surreal and graphic, but it worked. The acting was great as well. I really wanted to go see The Big Sick, but mostly just give it some...

Fantastic movie one of my favorites. What the hell is bent over the phone booth?

The Hell With This Podcast #31 - Prince of Darkness

Mark and Chad dive deep into John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness" - a film which Chad is seeing for the first time.  They talk about their collective love of Carpenter's collected works and the sentimentality they feel for that "lost" brand of filmmaking.  Actually, it's kind of a depressing episod...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

I checked out The Void on Netflix. A very decent Lovecraftian horror movie with some bitchin' monsters. Felt a bit like they were making it up as they went along and a bit too much like Prince of Darkness, but it's still worth a watch. Lovecraft-inspired movies are hard enough to come by that I set...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast - Master List

Mark and I recorded two episodes these past two days. Updated the list! I should have Prince of Darkness up by end of day (assuming I can fix my current download speeds to download the audio from mark), and Parnassus will go up on Tuesday, which will get us effectively back on schedule at 32 weeks-i...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

Watched Wonder Woman, it was fine, don't quite get why people were acting like it was something new. Gadot and Pine are good and whilst the WWI setting was slightly different it was pretty much by the numbers. Pretty much how I felt. Wonder Woman is one of my favorite characters, mostly because I h...

My youngest was pretty upset at the ending. I mean she was mad, which made it even more potent for me having to explain how, as in life, it wasn't necessarily a sad ending.
This is amazing. This generally upbeat movie destroyed your child's world view.

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #30 - La la land

I read the IMDB trivia after we were done recording and learned all about the numerous references to other musicals. That kind of cleverness doesn't mean much to me because I haven't SEEN all those old musicals. So when a particular number is taking cues from The Umbrellas of Blahblahblah, that's w...

The Hell With This Podcast #30 - La la land

Pretty sure you've heard of this one before.  "The famous Oscar loser", as Mark puts it, gently.  But Mark's never seen it, and Chad has (too many times), so here we are.  Why tackle a movie that's hot off the press?  Well, maybe it's a half-hearted attempt to have a conversation about hype and how ...

Still loving it even after packing gear a mile up the trail and back. That tripod and head are not light. Dude! This! THIS! This is my film making role - pack mule! I rock at that shit! Lemme know if I can help! And, uh, if it pays... It's true - I've seen Mike haul a heavy ass tripod up and down a...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #29 - It Follows

I think she popped up in Independence Day 2, right? Other than that... She did, indeed! This will sound like complete bullshit, but I had dinner with her around the time ID4 v2 came out. The plan was to make another "Waiting on Roxie" style fashion short, but with Maika as the model this time aroun...

That's a real pain, still it will be worth it when it's done. Fully agree. haha, fucking hair cuts... it'll get you every time. It's like you're in a film school - year one, in the record books. Sucks, too. There'll be something else that unexpectedly rears its head as well, but roll with it! Just ...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #29 - It Follows

I don't know why I haven't seen it before, I know I've looked at it many times, but I'm looking forward to watching it now. On my Netflix streaming queue and waiting to watch it before I listen to the podcast. Excellent. It takes a moment to get into the tone of the film, but once it gets going - i...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #29 - It Follows

There's brilliant insights as to filmmaking in this podcast: the role of the horror genre given to newcomers: editing: pacing...and stuff. I also love the weird little shell phone that one girl has. It's just enough to tell you this isn't taking place in our world. It's in a universe next door to o...

The Hell With This Podcast #29 - It Follows

Chad and Byron Smith tackle Chad's favorite movie from 2014, the wonderful (but oddly divisive) "It Follows".  This movie loves suspense, adores suspense and craves suspense - teasing the audience from start to finish.  Stylistically, it set the bar for last year's "Stranger Things", but it did so i...

Due to family responsibilities (main character has his kid for the month of July) and continuity issues (he cut his hair) filming will now go into late summer (late July/ early August). I will be filming every scene without the main character that is left and doing every thing I can for post produc...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast - Master List

haha, well I *tried* to get it up today, but failed miserably. We (Byron Smith and myself) watched "It Follows" this week, if you want a head start.
