The summer heat wave has thrown off the release schedule of the Films Uncorked Podcast. That is our story and we are sticking with it!
With this episode, our friend Tori joins us as we watch Heathers. Sometimes teaching your friends a lesson can go just a little too far!
When a father becomes ill, he takes he estranged and reluctant son through the fantasy of stories. However, there is a good possibility that there is truth behind these stories, but does it matter when it comes to family?
Being that some of you listen on the east coast are being hit with this nor’easter. I suggest watching The Wolf on Wall Street based on a true story of Jordan Belfort played by the great Leo DiCaprio and a great young supportive cast like Jonah Hill and the beautiful Maggie Robbie and the ageless Mathew McConaughy. Martin Scorsese takes the true story (as usual) of Belfort and his lavishing lifestyle of scamming and corruption. Nerd note about this film Belfort served 22 months and a beautiful prison but his cellmate while in prison and the man who told him to write his story into a script was Tommy Chong from Cheech and Chong films. Enjoy your wet and cold weekend folks this film will entertain you for 3 hours for sure.
Dallas Buyers Club is my movie pick of the week. It is a flawed and yet perfect example of the Hollywood biopic due to it being so flawed.
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both play their roles wonderfully, and were recognized as such by the Academy, they are let down by a meat-fisted biopic story that loses its characters in the politics of its subject.
As such, the film loses its momentum by the end and scrambles to tie together what loose ends are left. Many biopics suffer the same fate, with so much effort made to build a believable portrait of the figure in question and not enough to applying their life story to a resonant and coherent story structure. But fuck it, go watch it, it’s fine.
What would you do if you found the woman of your dreams AND you found out that you can travel within your only timeline onto the past? Well, that is exactly what this movie is about.
The film stars Roddy Piper, Keith David, and Meg Foster and based on the 1963 short story, “Eight O’Clock in the Morning” by Ray Nelson. Who else but Roddy Piper would be able to save our lives from an alien invasion!
