GTGC #226 Devil in a Blue Dress

July 26th, 2017

Denzel Washington makes his GenreCast debut as the gang gathers around to discuss the 1995 noir, Devil in a Blue Dress.

The Devil in a Blue Dress is in the Details

Devil in a Blue Dress

According to Wikipedia, "Devil in a Blue Dress is a 1995 American neo-noir mystery film directed by Carl Franklin and photographed by Tak Fujimoto. The film is based on Walter Mosley's novel of the same name and features Denzel Washington, Tom Sizemore, Jennifer Beals and Don Cheadle."

Arthur joins Dalton and Dustin to discuss this overlooked gem. After their quick reviews, the game gets underway. This week, the game is a round table pitch game. Each host discusses Noir/Genre mashups they would like to see. It is similar to the noir out of water game from the Brick episode.

After the game, the discussion turns towards analysis. Race, coding, formalism, expressionism and the American dream all come up in discussion. The hosts also discuss how this film would fair in today's political climate.

If you're wondering which of the hosts are wearing the blue dress, you'll have to tune in and find out!

GTGC #225 A Time To Kill

July 19th, 2017

Kill Some Time Talking about A Time to Kill

A Time to Kill is a great example of the 90's explosion of courtroom dramas and Dalton and Dustin are here to put it on trial technically and thematically. 

A Time To Kill

According to Wikipedia:

A Time to Kill is a 1996 American crime drama film adaptation of John Grisham's 1989 novel of the same name, directed by Joel Schumacher. Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew McConaughey, and Kevin Spacey star, with Oliver Platt, Ashley Judd, Kiefer and Donald Sutherland, and Patrick McGoohan appearing in supporting roles. Set in Canton, Mississippi, the film involves the rape of a young girl, the arrest of the rapists, their subsequent murder by the girl's father, and the father's trial for murder. The film was a critical and commercial success, making $152 million at the worldwide box office.

Now we realize that this makes two Schumacher films in a row, but this is very different from last week's Flatliners. We talk all about justice, race, Black Lives Matter, and even O.J. Simpson. This week our game is our favorite courtroom dramas. What are some of yours?

GTGC #224 Flatliners 1990

July 12th, 2017

Dalton and Dustin are back from the dead with Flatliners!

 

According to Wikipedia:

Flatliners is a 1990 American science fiction psychological horror film directed by Joel Schumacher, produced by Michael Douglas and Rick Bieber, and written by Peter Filardi. It stars Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. The film is about five medical students who attempt to find out what lies beyond death by conducting clandestine experiments that produce near-death experiences.

 

Dalton and Dustin have a good time talking about a movie that is better on paper than it is on celluloid. We like the performances, play a game about our favorite cinematic experiments, and we handle life and death's great metaphysical mysteries in our analysis.

GTGC #223 - War on Everyone

July 5th, 2017

Dalton and Dustin are back with War on Everyone which is oddly appropriate for the week of the Fourth of July.

 

According to Wikipedia:

War on Everyone is a 2016 British black comedy buddy cop film written and directed by John Michael McDonagh. The film stars Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña, and Theo James. Set and filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico, it was screened in the Panorama section of the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.

We heat up some fun conversation as we talk about discourses of violence, America viewed from the outside, police brutality, nuance in religion and gender/sexuality and a movie we overall felt was kind of a mess.

Our game was good times because we got to talk about our favorite cinematic henchmen.
