00:00 - 03:04 - INTROS. Also we talk about the opening shot of Brian De Palma's Snake Eyes (1998)
03:05 - 12:20 - HOMEWORK: Sean watched Three Musketeers (2011), directed by Paul WS Anderson. Also mentioned in this chunk are The Castle of Cagliostro (1979), directed by Hayao Miyazaki and Universal Soldier: Regeneration(2009), directed by John Hyams. As they come up in reference to Three Musketeers, Dave Chapelle as Prince and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky mentioning the Warcraft cinematic.
12:21 - 31:43 - HOMEWORK: Tucker watched Tenebrae(1982), directed by Dario Argento. With a soundtrack by Simonetti-Morante-Pignatelli (formerly Goblin). Listen to the theme here.
I would link to these sequences but we cover a lot of it, and it's a
truly great movie. You shouldn't watch it in chunks on the internet.
Check it out if you haven't.
31:44 - 38:40 - Sean watched The Man From Hong Kong (1975), directed by Brian Trenchard Smith and starring Jimmy Wang Yu and George Lazenby. On the subject of exhausted fight scenes, Tucker mentions Chaser (2008) and Defiance(1980), and Sean mentions the hotel fight from Darker than Amber(1970).
38:41 - 45:30 - Tucker watched Arbitrage (2012), directed by Nicholas Jarecki and starring Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon. (SECOND RICHARD GERE SHOW). When we decide we're saying "sequence" too much, we should have said "set piece". We dumb. The woman who won the Oscar for one scene in Network is Beatrice Straight.
45:31 - 49: 50 - Sean watched the frankly reprehensible women in prison movie The Big Bird Cage (1972), directed by Jack Hill and starring Pam Grier and Sid Haig. Blah blah blah talky talk. The reason it cuts off so quickly is because Sean wouldn't shut up about this one, and none of what he said after that was interesting. Gross.
49:51 - 1:18:46 - Big theater-going week for both of us. We both saw The Master (2012), directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and Looper (2012), directed by Rian Johnson. We start this section off with a mention of Megan Ellison, patron saint of good movies coming out in 2012. We also talk about that David Denby "death of cinema" article. You've read it. You don't need us to link to it.
Tucker saw the Master at the Ziegfeld theater in 70MM. Sean drove two hours to watch it in a crappy digital projection. We get in our patented WEEKLY JOHN CARPENTER MENTION™.
The section from Scorsese on Scorsese Sean does a poor job of mentioning -
"For example, when Jake asks Joey "Did you fuck my wife?" I had written a 7 page scene, the only full length dialog scene in the film. When he asks the question, "What, how could you say that?", I told Bob I wasn't getting enough reaction from Joe Pesci. He told me to roll the camera again, and then said "Did you fuck your mother?". When you see the film again, look at Joe's reaction!"
The other time travel crap Sean brings up while talking about Looper - Chris Marker's La Jetee (1962) which you can watch in it's entirety in that link, and it's Terry Gilliam remake 12 Monkeys (1995), James Cameron's Terminator (1984), Looper's time travel advisor Shane Carruth and his movie Primer (2004), Alain Resnais' Je T'aime Je T'aime (1968), Garret Dillahunt on the surprisingly great Terminator tv show The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Yeah, we get it you like all that crap and didn't mention Bill and Ted once. In other words, you suck, Witzke. BILL AND TED FOREVERZ.
