PLP – Pod Shots – End of Watch

PlayPlay

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest Courtney Leaver as we discuss the 2012 film End of Watch. We begin with a discussion of our history with the film and move into the way it’s shot, and discuss whether the first person camera technique is a benefit or a distraction. We get further into the film and talk about our two main characters and their interactions. One of us isn’t fully behind their relationship, I’ll let you guess who had a problem with it. From here, the discussion spirals into complaint about the film from one of us regarding the tone, the and specifically the ending. We discuss the impact of the ending as well as the scene after the ending of the film. It’s a fun discussion and a chance to see what happens when one co-host doesn’t quite enjoy the film as much as the other. You should do yourself a favor and check this one out!

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest Christopher Neseman to discuss the 2004 Tony Scott film Man on Fire. Based on a book by AJ Quinell, and written by Brian Helgeland, the film stars Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning. We begin the discussion with a brief look at Tony Scott as a director and the similarities between this film and our previous film we discussed, Payback. We discuss how the both of us came to the film and why it’s one of Chris’ favorites. We discuss Denzel Washington, in this role and in his place in Hollywood around this time. We talk about Christopher Walken, Dakota Fanning, Rada Mitchell and her accent, Marc Anthony and his performance in the film but mostly we discuss our main character John Creasy, his relationship, his life, and his reasons for living. It’s a wonderful discussion and a great time having Chris on again. You should do yourself a favor and check this one out!

imageIn this episode we conclude our July theme of survival films! We are once again joined by Cameron Rice and this time we discuss the films Cannibal! The Musical, Open Water, and War of the Worlds! We begin the discussion with a look at Cannibal! The Musical. We talk a bit about Trey Parker and Matt Stone and their work before South Park, including this first effort. We go into why comedies are hard for us to discuss as well as bringing up some of our favorite comedic bits that hit home for us. We then move into Open Water. We discuss independent films vs. amateur films and the lack of anything for the characters to do before getting into the water. We discuss the tactics the characters could have used as well as the choices by the filmmakers to shoot the film in the way they did. We finally get into War of the Worlds and discuss the crazy Tim Robbins eyes, the Tom Cruise running and ending of the film which is traditionally thought of as being problematic. It’s always a good time having Cameron on, you should do yourself a favor and check it out!
