Have Josh's prayers for cinematic greatness been answered? Did he find them in Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Aftermath," or is he just going to nitpick away another movie this week?
There is but one way to find out, and that's to click play.
For this week's podcast, we're continuing our conversation on filmic enthusiasm and the search for great movies. However, rather than tackling it from our jaded, adult, eyes, we take a gander at how children (specifically Josh's) see movies. For them, so many movies are great, so many movies open up their eyes to something new and wonderful.
What sort of burden though does that put on those of us who have the responsibility of showing them something new and different (and good)?
"The Space Between Us" is, ostensibly, about a teen who has grown up on Mars wanting to go back to Earth and see what life is like on humanity's home planet. Sadly for Josh, moments of flawed logic made it impossible for him to accept so much of the film well before the teen in question was anything more than an infant.
How does it go so wrong so quickly? Listen and find out!
Every once in a while Josh offers up his thought on just why he goes to the movies. While he espouses sometimes lofty ideals in these pieces, he never feels quite satisfied with his take. It isn't that he's wrong, he just feels like he can do better. And so, again this week, he has graced us with another podcast on why he loves movies.
Apparently they're like his bad golf game. Listen and do with that what you will.
On this week's podcast we launch a brand new giveaway! We have two copies of "Saturday Night Fever" to hand out (two winners, one copy each). Enter at tvandfilmguy.com
Beyond that, we talk about "The Red Turtle," one of Josh's favorites from last year (now available on Blu-ray). It is a movie good enough to have Josh stop worrying about commas and semicolons, and that says something.
