TUCKER AND SEAN TALK MOVIES! AREN'T YOU EXCITED?! WHY AREN'T YOU
EXCITED?! LISTEN YOUR MOM'S GONNA PICK YOU UP ON SUNDAY! WHY ARE YOU
CRYING? COME ON! I BOUGHT PIZZA GOLDANGIT!
00:00 - 02:22 - INTROS - Politics, Sports, the healing spiritual powers of Jai Alai. The weird noises are all Sean's 13 dollar headset on and the bad connection, sorry about that (it's actually Sean's gimp mask rubbing up against the mic for the whole show). If this is really annoying, it has already been remedied for the next week. Next time he'll wear the Mickey Mouse head gasmask. Listen we've talked to him about it, he's only doing the show in some kind of mask - he's been told that we are not recording video and that his identity is not in danger, but we honestly don't think he understands how the internet works.
02:23 - 12:21 - HOMEWORK - Tucker and Sean continue their conversation about Dead Man's Shoes (2004), which Sean watched after Tucker did such a great job selling it in the last podcast. Directed and co-written by Shane Meadows and co-written and starring Paddy Consindine, this is a good one. Also briefly mentioned - the Red Riding miniseries from 2009, based on the novels by David Peace, and Kubrick's Lolita (1962).
12:22 - 22:34 - MORE HOMEWORK - Sean had Tucker watched Dead or Alive (1999), directed by Takashi Miike starring Riki Takeuchi and Show Aikawa. Also mentioned - Heat (1995), Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012), and a specific scene from the film, and Takeshi Kitano's Brother (2000).
22:35 - 28:30 - MOVIE - Sean watched The Great Silence (1968), directed by Sergio Corbucci and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Klaus Kinski. The New York Times article Quentin Tarantino wrote about Corbucci that is discussed can be read here.
28:31 - 36:55 - TRAILERS - The conversation turns to the trailer for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained, and then swerves over to the absolutely perfect trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty. Also in this section - Tucker talks about Rolling Thunder (1977) directed by John Flynn, which is the absolute best part of this damn podcast. And Sean talks about Richard Fleischer's Mandingo (1975). THEN, Tucker discusses racism on Disney Channel sitcoms. That part where the music plays is when Tucker left the room to throw up for the second time in the last ten years. A historic moment, immortalized for you!
36:56 - 45:50 - AND FINALLY - We talk about Argo (2012), directed and starring Ben Affleck, and starring John Goodman as the great John Chambers, Alan Arkin, Clea Duvall (!), Bryan Cranston, Rory Cochran, Scoot McNairy, Kyle Chandler, Tate Donovan, Richard Kind, Victor Garber, Titus Welliver, Michael Parks, and generally every character actor who kicks ass and/or was available at the time they were shooting. Also discussed in this section - Olivier Assayas' Carlos (2010) and Steven Soderbergh's Che (2008).
45:51 - 46:44 - NINA STONE WITH THE PREVIEW OF ALL FILMS WE WATCHED FOR NEXT WEEK. SEE YOU BACK HERE IN ONE WEEK FOR HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN.
