Episode 4 - 30 - 12

The Boom Operator watched and thoroughly enjoyed the new Aardman Animations film Pirates! Band of Misfits, which provoked our perennial discussion and preference for tangible, non-digital effects ad nauseum. We also saw the obscure and soon-to-remain-obscure Panos Cosmatos film Beyond the Black Rainbow, one of the weirdest films ever made, and a true masterpiece of retro-futurist artsanity pastiche: Kubrick, Tron, Tarkovsky, THX 1138Dark Star, Jodorowski and Kenneth Anger set to a Valerie Collective soundtrack and a mescaline addiction. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. I can't recommend this film at all, and I can't recommend it enough. That's one for the vault.

We heard music from the following:

Blade Runner, 1982 - Vangelis
Cutthroat Island, 1995 - John Debney
The Hobbit, 1977 - Maury Laws
Irreversible, 2002 - Thomas Bangalter
Monkey Island Series, 199x - Various
