After a witty repartee involving the merits of shitty TV shows, we fired away at the crop of unusual films coming out soon, namely Wong-kar Wai's The Grandmaster (a boring wuxia film? daring!), World's End, the final pace to the Wright/Frost/Pegg triptych, and Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, another literary tie-in with far to many additions to possibly make it tenable.
And what's the verdict on Redbox? This pushed us into an old discussion of dying business models with live rental-browsing.
Then we gabbed about the Rifftrax screening of Starship Troopers we attended (and enjoyed!) before the Boom reviewed Neil Jordan's Byzantium, which he found to be middling. But at least it gave him occasion to pronounce Saoirse Ronan again, which we can all agree is hilarious.
We heard music from:
The Adventures of Tintin, 2011 - John Williams
Hero, 2002 - Tan Dun
Starship Troopers, 1997 - Basil Poledouris
Interview with a Vampire, 1994 - Elliot Goldenthal
