0:00:00 - 0:18:08 - This week, Tucker Stone and Sean Witzke we're doing a special on the Saga of Tucker's recent movie viewing. Normally we're all over the place, this week, we're telling a story. It's like a Neil Diamond song. Just stay with us. We'll take care of you...
We start off with Edge of Tomorrow (2014), directed by Doug Liman, starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, and Bill Paxton. Also discussed in this section: Go, Jumper, Groundhog Day, Top Gun, Django Unchained, Old Boy, The Bourne Identity, Amazing Spider-Man, Swingers, Mr. and Ms. Smith, Aliens, and found footage movies.
0:18:09 - 0:22:59 - Next up Tucker saw, for the first time, Conan the Barbarian (1982), directed by John Milius, script by Milius and Oliver Stone, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sandhal Bergman, James Earl Jones, Mako, Max Von Sydow, giant bodybuilder dudes, and a surfer dude. Also discussed in this section: Conan the Destroyer, Red Sonja, that new X-Men movie, and the differences between special effects between 1982 and now.
0:23:00 - 0:41:22 - After that, Tucker watched Lincoln Lawyer (2011), directed by Brad Furman, starring Matthew McConnaughey, Ryan Phillipe, Marisa Tomei, Josh Lucas, William H Macy, Bryan Cranston, Michael Pena. Also discussed in this section: Runaway Jury, Devil's Advocate, Ashley Judd movies, The Rainmaker, Wild Things, Hero, Kalifornia, Swordfish, Law & Order, True Detective, Land Boogie Nights. The one great ambulancer chaser movie we forgot is Billy Wilder's The Fortune Cookie, but technically that's a con man movie. Or at least that's our excuse for forgetting it.
0:41:23 - 0:48:42 - Tucker then made the decision to salve this movie onto his eyeballs: Knight and Day (2010), directed by James Mangold, starring Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgard, probably somone else. Also discussed in this section: the Charlie's Angels movies, Bad Teacher, Being John Malkovich, and Gangs of New York.
0:48:42 - 0:55:05 - Then, Tucker went to see a movie in a theater. It was Goodbye Dragon Inn (2003), directed by Tsai Ming-Liang, starring Lee-Kang Sheng, Chen Shiang-chyi, and Mitamura Kiyonobu. Also discussed in this section: Tarkovsky, King Hu, The White Ribbon, Cannes, Only God Forgives.
0:55:06 - 1:09:32 - Finally, Tucker went and saw a 2014 movie that very same night! It was The Rover (2014), directed by David Michod, starring Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, and Scott McNairy. Also discussed in this section: Animal Kingdom and Snowtown. And in the middle of this discussion, just to to close out right, we talk briefly about the trailers for Olvier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman, as well as Karina Longworth's fantastic new movie podcast You Must Remember This, all of which you should check out immediately if you haven't already. Wait, there's another movie podcast?
