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.

3: Dog Day Afternoon (1975, Sidney Lumet)

August 31st, 2016

Episode 3 covers Sidney Lumet's DOG DAY AFTERNOON. A lot of this is simply a Pacino lovefest, which should be no surprise, but we talk shop about Chris Sarandon, Charles Durning, John Cazale, and much more! Some quick bits at the beginning cover Fury, A History of Violence, Arrested DevelopmentJellyfish Eyes, and some spoiler-free thoughts on Star Trek Beyond.

2: Sorcerer (1977, William Friedkin)

August 20th, 2016

The long-delayed Episode 2 covers William Friedkin's SORCERER. Some of the shop talk and box office results we discuss at the beginning should be a dead giveaway that this was recorded a while ago. We'll be playing catch-up over the next couple episodes and should be working closer to the present by Episode 5, so bear with us. Don't forget to let us know what you think by dropping a comment here or on Itunes, and please subscribe and review the show on Itunes, also!

1: The Hustler (1961, Robert Rossen)

August 4th, 2016

This discussion on Robert Rossen's 1961 drama-noir THE HUSTLER is a bit rough around the edges. I don't think either myself or Cesar were happy with the end result, but it was ultimately a good thing for us to shake off the cobwebs and figure out how to pace ourselves for an hour-long show. There was a technical glitch around the twenty-minute mark, so I took that opportunity to fill some dead air with vintage trailer audio, which runs about three minutes. "Growing pains," as Cesar put it during the final minutes of the episode. I've already listened to the raw audio file for Episode 2, and it's much better; so there's that to look forward to, anyway.

Thanks for listening!
C.J.
