11: The Maltese Falcon (1941, John Huston)

April 4th, 2017

The long-promised episode on John Huston's 1941 film version of Dashiell Hammett's THE MALTESE FALCON is finally here! We begin with our reactions to the latest trailers for Justice League and Spider-Man: Homecoming and, as usual, occasionally veer off onto other topics as well. Follow us on Twitter @settingtheframe and @juniorbeho, and continue the discussion in the Celluloid Jelly Facebook group. Thanks for listening!

10: Logan (2016, James Mangold)

March 16th, 2017

Not only is Episode 10 extremely late (sorry about that), but we pull the old switcheroo by pushing our promised talk about THE MALTESE FALCON even further back, in order to wax on James Mangold's LOGAN. Featuring Hugh Jackman in what will likely be his final appearance in the X-Men franchise, the film is set in a near future where mutant kind is dying off, even the Wolverine. As usual, this is loose and unscripted. Follow us on Twitter: @juniorbeho for Cesar and @settingtheframe for C.J., and don't forget to subscribe and rate us on iTunes.

9: Children of Men (1996, Alfonso Cuaròn)

December 28th, 2016

Returning after a two-month haitus, Episode 9 covers Alfonso Cuaròn's 1996 science fiction film, CHILDREN OF MEN. We begin by discussing recent (well, recent when we recorded this...) trailers for FATE OF THE FURIOUS and SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, and we keep things fairly loose throughout the episode. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter: @juniorbeho for Cesar, and @settingtheframe for C.J. More episodes are coming in the new year, so stick with us! Happy holidays!

8: The Shining (1980, Stanley Kubrick)

October 23rd, 2016

We asked fans on Facebook to take part in a poll to determine which horror film we would discuss for Episode 8. The results were close, with Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING edging out other perennial favorites, such as The Exorcist. The warm-up conversation includes recent horror rewatches Hellraiser, Trick 'r Treat, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, and a few others. We get into The Shining about thirty minutes in, and we end with a bit of a rant by C.J. on aspect ratios. As always, you can catch up with us on Twitter -- @settingtheframe for C.J. and @juniorbeho for Cesar -- or join the Celluloid Jelly group on Facebook! Don't forget to subscribe on iTunes and take a moment to review the show there as well. Thanks!

7: Seven Samurai (1954, Akira Kurosawa)

Episode 7 is a real whopper! Cesar (@juniorbeho) and C.J. (@settingtheframe) discuss Kurosawa's SEVEN SAMURAI, as well as both the 1960 John Sturges-directed THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN and the 2016 film, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Spoilers ahoy!

6: Hot Fuzz (2007, Edgar Wright)

October 3rd, 2016

Episode 6 features a discussion on Edgar Wright's HOT FUZZ, the second installment in his Cornetto Trilogy, all featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in the leads. We gush over Wright's visual style and Timothy Dalton's performance, among other things. This episode was a viewer suggestion, so don't forget to engage with us on Twitter (@settingtheframe for C.J. and @juniorbeho for Cesar) or in the Celluloid Jelly group on Facebook.

5: Tombstone (1993, George P. Cosmatos)

September 22nd, 2016

For Episode 5, we're talking George P. Cosmatos' 1993 western TOMBSTONE. The film dramatizes the real-life events leading up to and occurring after the famous 1881 shootout at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, between a group of lawmen - Wyatt Earp, his brothers Virgil and Morgan, Doc Holliday - and members of the notorious outlaw gang known as The Cowboys. Try not to picture us twirling toy guns as we profess our love for this film, and be sure to follow us on twitter @juniorbeho and @settingtheframe. As always, thanks for listening!

4: Inception (2010, Christopher Nolan)

September 12th, 2016

This episode covers Christopher Nolan's dream heist thriller, INCEPTION. A rare blockbuster that respects the viewer's intelligence and lingers well after the first viewing, the film features a great cast and a complex plot that weaves multiple layers of reality together. This one should prompt dissection and debate amongst fans, and we certainly had a great talk, which went a little longer than normal.
