PLP – Pod Shots – A.I. Artificial Intelligence

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest, Sean Stangland to discuss the 2001 Steve Spielberg film A.I. Artificial Intelligence! We discuss the impact Stanley Kubrick had on the film, the performances of Haley Joel Osment, and Jude Law, and most importantly we discuss the controversial to some, ending. We mention some of the highs and some of the lows of the film and really dig into what we think is going on at the end of this tale. Here’s a hint, I’m talking with Sean so it’s most likely going to be a movie that asks some very large questions. It really is a fascinating film and you should do yourself a favor and check it out!

PLP – Pod Shots – Rollerball

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest, Christopher Neseman to discuss the 1975 film, Rollerball! We discuss the viciousness of the game, and how we’re not really too far off from a sport such as this. We get into how the film begins and why that’s important, the social commentary in the film, as well as the tremendous ending. We discus the importance of individuality and how important that theme is to the 70s. It really is a fascinating film and sadly it has a lot of the future foretold in it, has become a reality! Check it out!

PLP – Pod Shots – Hard Boiled

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest, Mr. Shawn Pryor. Once again we are discussing a John Woo Hong Kong action film and this time we’re going with Hard Boiled. We get into why this film, the poetic action pieces, the emotions this film can convey through action films, the lead performances and their motivations and the bad ass that is Mad Dog. Shawn and I get into the film and really begin to gush over how beautifully shot the film is and how wonderful the action sequences are. We do have a few problems with the film and we discuss that along with the ending. It’s always a great time having Shawn on and if you haven’t already checked out his podcast, you should do yourself and favor and do that. Also if you haven’t checked out this film or The Killer we would highly recommend those films, they are certainly worth a watch.

PLP – Episode 76 – Spoofs Part 4

imageWelcome to the Plain Label Podcast! In this episode we are concluding our two month long theme of Spoofs with a discussion of National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon 1 and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story! We begin with a discussion on Loaded Weapon and mention some of our favorite aspects of the film. We mention a few things that don’t quite work before getting into the ridiculous cast this film has behind it. Moving into our second film, we discuss Walk Hard, Eric’s apprehension with the film and the comedy styling of John C. Reilly. We compare and contrast this film with Loaded Weapon as well as Walk the Line. Again we mention some of our favorite moments of the film before a wrap up of our thoughts on this genre as a whole. It’s another fun and funny episode, do yourself a favor and check it out

PLP – Pod Shots – The Place Beyond The Pines

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!

PLP – Pod Shots – Out of the Past

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!
