PLP – Pod Shots – The Killer

imageIn this episode, I’m joined by returning guest Shawn Pryor as we discuss the 1989 John Woo directed film The Killer. We begin with a quick discussion of how we discovered John Woo. We break down the different versions of English translation the movie has had before getting into the film, which was a revelation for Eric. We get into some of the main touches that John Woo uses, including the choreography with gun play, the doves, and his overall style. We also discuss with some detail, the ending of the film which includes some heartbreaking scenes. There is also a clue as to some films Shawn and I may be discussing in the future!

PLP – Pod Shots – End of Watch

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!
