Ep 218 Sanae “Sandy” Narita!

Konichiwa film nerds! Chris and Graham are in Hong Kong, Tokyo with Sandy “Big Fan Japan”. They talk about running around Tokyo filming for Ear Buds. Graham watched The Lady on the plane and really liked it. Chris finally saw Grand Budapest Hotel and was glad he did. Uncharted Waters is a good surf doc, according to Graham. Sane talks about some of her favorite Kurosawa films like Sanjuro. If you spent your entire life looking for the perfect episode, it would not be a life wasted.

The Rover Review

I dig these little indie films in the summer. They are bright spot of film-making in the sea of Hollywood’s, in-your-face block-buster season. It’s good to not always be smashed in the face with explosions, or 80 % CGI something or other for a change. Good to have other options, that’s all I’m saying. And…

Edge Of Tomorrow Review

Edge of Tomorrow is probably the film that will finally help people forget how crazy Tom Cruise is and get them to go see his movies again. Ironically, (or not) Tom Cruise isn’t really the main reason why this movie is so good. We can thank the source material, a manga called “All You Need…

Now, it’s been out two weeks so I should be able to vent and celebrate and all that without anyone freaking out, right? There’s spoilers coming up is what I’m saying.

Fading Gigolo Review

Not only is the role of Murray in Fading Gigolo Woody Allen’s best role – and performance – in decades, the film’s initial scenes crackle with the economy, wit, and simplicity of Allen’s lightest soufflés. Unfortunately, writer and director John Turturro intends a deeper tale than these initial bites of joy suggest, and, stretching the metaphor, the main course has none of the bite of the hors d’oeuvres.
