PLP – Pod Shots – The Place Beyond The Pines

PlayPlay

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest, and title holder for most times on Pod Shots, Mr. Steve Bruns! This time around we are discussing the 2013 film The Place Beyond The Pines staring Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper. We begin discussing the first third of the film and dissecting that section and specifically Gosling’s performance as handsome Luke. We move into the more politically charged middle section which leaves Steve all hot and bothered before moving into the controversial last third of the film. We discuss the format, the plot, the script, the acting, the choices that were made and what it all means. It’s a film that left some disappointed and some wanting more, which makes it perfect for pod shots! It’s another fun episode with Steve and we certainly think, and hope you’ll enjoy it!

The Keith Show starring Keith Episode 15 – Make MY Marvel

In the glut of speculation that Marvel’s upcoming Secret Wars anniversary event will see some manner of continuity reboot, Keith is joined by Alan White for a thought experiment.  Basically, the idea is this: what creative decisions would Keith make if he was given the unenviable task of rebooting the Marvel Universe.  Alan plays the role of the audience, responding to Keith’s pitches to see if they’re any good.

Yes a hoax!  Yes an imaginary story!  Worlds will live!  Worlds won’t die!  Everything will probably be the same again!

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest, Zack Kruse and once again we are talking about a classic noir film. This time around we have the Robert Mitchum film Out of the Past! Zack details why he brought this film to me and the love that he has for the film. We talk a bit about my initial reaction to the film before delving into what it is exactly that makes the film so great. We talk about performances and who exactly gives the most impressive performance. We discuss the twists and turns the film has in it and if the ending of the film is what we hoped or expected. It’s always great talking with Zack, especially about older films and this is no exception! Check it out!
