08:04 - 18:10 This time around, Tucker's homework was Attack the Block (2011), directed by Joe Cornish and produced by Edgar Wright. Also referenced in this section - The Goonies (1985) directed by Richard Donner, and Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) directed by John Carpenter. Just so you know, Sean's gonna keep talking about Carpenter way way too much. All the time. He has a problem. Tucker also has a problem realizing that you aren't supposed to call British people "African-Americans". Sorry about that!
18:11 - 23:28 And now, we start the movie game for the week, where we didn't tell each other what films we watched all week and now have to guess how the other reacted to the film on title alone. First up - Tucker watched Black Rain (1989) directed by Ridley Scott. Also referenced in this section - The Yakuza (1974) directed by Sydney Pollack and Ken Takakura.
23:29-31:59 - Sean watched Centurion (2010) by Neil Marshall. We talk about Marshall's other films The Descent and Doomsday, as well as director Larry Fessenden and the upcoming Martin McDonagh film Seven Psychopaths (2012). We also talk about this picture of Al Pacino and Christopher Walken:
Whoa. Let's move on.
32:00 - 38:25 Tucker watched Blue Steel (1989) directed by Kathryn Bigelow. Also referenced: Bigelow's Near Dark (1987) and the Ben Stiller directed/Dan Harmon & Rob Schrab written Heat Vision and Jack pilot (1999).
Oh and when Sean mentions Jeff Lester telling me about Kathryn Bigelow, he was wrongly remembering hearing him mention it on the wonderful Wait, What? podcast.
38:26 - 42:40 Sean watched The Wanderers (1979) directed by Philip Kaufman. Also there is a lot of talk about The Warriors directed by Walter Hill, and a double feature of both films at the New Beverly theater held by Edgar Wright. Kaufman's version of The Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Linda Manz, and Erland Von Lidth come up too.
42: 41 - 47:39 Tucker watched Port of Shadows (1938) directed by Marcel Carne (originally titled Le Quai Des Brumes) and starring Jean Gabin. Also mentioned Robert Aldrich's Kiss Me Deadly (1955).
47:40 - 50:25 Sean watched Let There Be Light (1946) directed by John Huston - which you can watch in its entirety here.
50:25 - 50:30 weird technical problems. Sorryz. All you missed was Sean struggling to talk about John Huston with really no handle on Huston's filmography. Tucker also forgot about Roman Polanski. In other words, you missed nothing.
50:30 - 58:48 We recover with Tucker talking about Kathyrn Bigelow's bona fide 1991 classic Point Break. Also we mention the proto-surfer philosophy movie Big Wednesday (1978) directed by John Milius.
58:49 - 1:08:11 To wrap it up, Sean watched The Castle, a 1997 tv movie directed by Michael Haneke (originally Das Schloss) It was adapted from Franz Kafka's The Castle. Also mentioned - Steven Soderbergh's Kafka (1991), which adapts some of the same material. Finally, we have a short tangent talking about 2011 tv series The Shadow Line. GATEHOUSE.
