Reel Talk Episode 30: Tweelapse

I honestly spent about 10 minutes at the beginning of this episode talking about how I stopped saying lush. I really need to get my filter checked.

Otherwise! This week’s main review is of X-Men: Days of Future Past, a movie we all seemed ok with at first, until we started talking about it. Then we suddenly hated it. Weird.

We’ve also got Zhana Kuzmina with the Cannes winners, Peter Flynn with singing and compound nouns and discussion of how delighted John Travolta was to be playing Nicholas Cage, in the 90’s classic Face/Off. For all this and even some more, click the link below, or, subscribe on iTunes.

Reel Talk Episode 29 – Frozen on Ice…duh

Guess I’m late with the podcast posting again…exams suck you guys. So glad to be done.

Reviews of: Godzilla! With spoilers. Plus some other stuff about the crappiness of the Batman VS Superman title, and other outdated news the internet has thoroughly covered. MOVING ON.

Reel Talk Episode 28: Batman’s Bum-Chin

Brought up this short film at some point during recording. Not sure if the mention made it in, but I wanted to highlight it regardless because I adore how expressive the deforming quality of the animation is. Just as in my favourite short of the Animatrix (which we also mentioned) ‘World Record’, the warping and twisting of the human form communicates torment in a manner that makes it harsh and visceral, whether it’s the physical strain of Dan Davis’ running, or the psychological agony contained within this family. As their bodies contort, expand and contract, their pain pours off the screen, immediate and harrowing.

TONE-SHIFT.

So this week we start with discussions of sex-restaurants and end on a review of a Kurt Russell film and somehow these things are not related. Craziness. Otherwise, we criticise Frank for being too normal, fall in love with Johnny Mnemonic, dismiss David S. Goyer, and take bleeding ages to get to the point about Rammstein. Truly, we have ourselves a goddamn show.

Reel Talk Episode 27 – Movie Music Special

In a show of many excellent jams, this one IMO was definitely the jammiest.

This week’s Reel Talk was all about the music! We each picked 5 songs each from the scores of various movies and chatted about what they did for us, with candidates stretching from Donnie Darko (no, we didn’t pick Mad World…for some dumb reason), to Under the Skin, from Nymphomaniac to Attack the Block. It’s definitely a mixed bag, and hopefully some truly great listening. Also Zhana really cannot stand the new Tarzan trailer.

Reel Talk Episode 26 – Vaginal Guns

Pete decided guns were too phallic, so we tried to design an alternative and ended up with something like the District 9 magnet-gun. Only with babies.

This episode, we demonstrate what happens to our brains when we don’t have time to participate in the order of the weekly film release schedule. With Pete finishing a dissertation and myself neck deep in researching empires, we found ourselves a bit behind on our films and so decided to talk about everything else.

MENTIONED. Why Fallout 3 is great. Pete’s weird film ideas get slightly less arthouse. Convoluted Inglorious Basterds theorising. The weird wonders of eXistenz. Why Star Wars casting news is clickbait bollocks. And much, probably too much, more, all to be found by clicking the link below!
