Episode 9 - 23 - 13

Somehow our topics wandered from artistic seminal fluid and Dario Argento's latest colon-blow, Dracula 3D. Please do yourself a favor and watch the trailer for this. It looks...transcendent.

Review - The Grandmaster: Wong Kar-wai, that director of cryptic lovelorn conversations and shaky slow-mo with obtuse camera angles somehow was tasked to direct a film about a mythical character in martial arts and film history, Ip Man, who has already been cinematized in a manner befitting his influene. If you're not familiar, this guy is almost solely responsible for training and influencing a host of Hong Kong martial artists who would go on to become movie stars, therein transmitting kung fu and kung fu films to the West. There were clearly two films made here: the one WKW wanted to make, and the one he was bound to make, which results in some strange, uneven pacing, and somehow makes both the action scenes and the love story feel tacked on. The compositions make it worth, though, I think.

Review - We're the Millers: You'll just have to tune in and hear us deconstruct modern comedy and somehow manage to intelligently talk about "Pee pee - Poo poo - Fart."

We heard music from:

Tenebrae, 1982 - Goblin
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 2009 - Mark Mothersbaugh
House of Flying Daggers, 2005 - Shigeru Umebayashi
