00:00 - 10:10 - INTROS. We're baaaaaack from Xmas/New Years, punchy and a little weird. Also - we were plagued with connection and sound problems the entire time, which you can't really hear in the recording but we're totally thrown by it.
First up - we both watched MAGIC MIKE (2012), directed by Steven Soderbergh starring Channing Tatum, Matthew McConneghey, Cody Horn, Joe Manganello, Betsy Brandt, Olvia Munn, and Alex Pettyfer. We talk about Channing Tatum a whole lot, Showgirls, Soderbergh a little bit, 8 Mile, The Girlfriend Experience, and Joel Grey in Cabaret.
10:11 - 28:06 - Both of us watched END OF WATCH (2012), directed by David Ayer, starring Jake Gyllenhall, Michael Pena, Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo, America Ferrara, Cody Horn. Sean liked it more than Tucker, but we both agree on the amazing opening scene, and that the music in the film is FUCKING TERRIBLE. Also mentioned in this section - Neveldine & Taylor, the cool Glenn McQuaid section of the found footage compilation V/H/S, and Michael Pena in The Shield.
28:07 - 44:10 - Both Sean and Tucker watched JACK REACHER (2012) with their respective fathers. Directed and written by Christopher McQuarrie, shot by Caleb Deschanel, starring Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, Robert Duvall, and WERNER HERZOG. Sean also watched the other McQuarrie movie THE WAY OF THE GUN (2000), directed and written by Christopher McQuarrie, starring Benicio Del Toro, Ryan Phillipe, Juliette Lewis, Nicky Katt, James Caan, Scott Wilson, Sarah Silverman. Also mentioned in this section - the Anne Rice letter about Tom Cruise, the mudpit fight in Dark Knight Returns, NCIS, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the original trailer for Death Race 2000, and Tom Cruise's divorce.
44:12 - 1:27:08 - Before we get into the movies we watched, Tucker is excited about The Incredible Burt Wonderstone starring Alan Arkin and who the fuck cares else, ALAN ARKIN. But the main thing we discuss for the bulk of the podcast is Django Unchained and a little bit on Zero Dark Thirty (which at press time, Sean hadn't seen yet - our next show is going to be Zero Dark centric. And we discuss all Quentin Tarantino movies. All of them, in list/comparison format. Also maybe of interest is this.
(and here's the cast/crews of those films)
DJANGO UNCHAINED (2012), directed by Quentin Tarantino, starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo Dicaprio, Samuel L Jackson, Don Johnson, Jonah Hill, Christoph Waltz, Russ Tamblyn, Amber Tamblyn, Kerry Washington, Bruce Dern, MC Gainey, Tom Savini, Zoe Bell, a whole lot more people.
ZERO DARK THIRTY (2012), directed by Kathryn Bigelow, starring Jessica Chastain, Edgar Ramirez, Kyle Chandler, Joel Edgerton, Chris Pratt, Mark Strong, Mark Duplass, Stephen Dillane, Scott Adkins, Mark Valley, Frank Grillo, Jennifer Ehle, James Gandolfini, every fucking character actor you've ever loved in one movie.
Sean also watched DJANGO (1966) directed by Sergio Corbucci, starring Franco Nero and several of the unofficial sequels; DJANGO, KILL... IF YOU LIVE, SHOOT! (1967), directed by Giulio Questi, starring Tomas Milan; DJANGO, PREPARE A COFFIN (1968), directed by Ferdinando Baldi, starring Terrence Hill; and DJANGO, THE LAST KILLER (1967), directed by Giuseppe Varri, starring George Eastman.
