Episode 28 and a rambling hodge podge of topics - are there any truly satisfying trilogies and why do so many fall short? Then a seamless jump to The Truman Show, Noam Baumbach, female friendship, Ghibli, the Oldboy remake and the Afflecks
Onwards onwards onwards, the cinema going continues. Panic Room, Insomnia, One Hour Photo, Signs, 28 Days Later and Spiderman are just some of the films that inspire our wider chat, and Geoff is quizzed about appropriate replacements for Vincent Cassel.
It’s that time again, another peek at Adam’s ticket collection. 2002 proved to be a belter of a year. In part one we talk Coens, trash Cameron Crowe, while Training Day and the masterful Monsters Inc get some love.
Episode 23! Geoff and Adam have been watching some bad films of late, but they manage to ramble onto Iron Man 3, which Geoff loved and Adam didn’t. Still, unassuming as this all sounds, it’s classic Canon stuff. CLASSIC.
Episode 21 and back to the ticket collection of a loser. Despite the Kubrickian suggestions this is anything but an auspicious year for film. Most of the films have faded from view or never deserved to be there in the first place. Still, it’s a fun trip.
Episode 20 and here we go again. We use Harmony Korine’s latest folly to chat feminism and how we talk about women, and then seamlessly ease into a reader email. Why is cinema special, is it important who you go with and do we ever feel like we’re wasting out lives? Good question…
Something of a gamble this one, but we tried to watch a film and see what commentary it would inspire… Time travel, utopias and the importance of specifying accents in the subtitles it turned out. We couldn’t even last the whole film.
A fresh episode is here! Are plays hoity-toity bullshit? Can they be made into good films? Does anyone care? Adam and Geoff do, even if they can’t afford theatre tickets. They even do musicals and Shakespeare. Contains moderate chuckling and substantial grumpiness.
Part two, and Adam’s Big Bumper Bag Scrapbook of Little Green Tickets From Yesteryear continues onward. 2000 may have started off excellently but it soon descended into a summer of dross. Dross that Adam would sometimes watch twice. For some reason.
Episode 17, part one: Or Adam’s Big Bumper Bag Scrapbook of Little Green Tickets From Yesteryear to give it Geoff’s full title. More reminiscing and another two-parter. 2000 proved an important year, but you’ll have to listen to find out why.
Part two of Episode 16 and Geoff continues to plunge further into the films of 1999 as seen and treasured by Adam’s cinema ticket collection. Geoff is less than impressed with the quality, but the memories come thick and fast for our intrepid reminiscers.
