Faces Places (Visages Villages) Analysis — GC #310

March 28th, 2019

We wrap up our Women's Appreciation Month mini-marathon with Agnes Vardas' Faces Places (Visages Villages). The celebrated documentary from Varda and visual artist JR is a buddy-comedy documentary. The two artists tour around the French countryside capturing the lives of those who make the world go round. We rarely talk documentary, so we have some fun talking form. We then move into the ideology of the work and explore the social elements at play. We also continue to expand the syllabus as we finally start to find our footing with the new format. Tune in now to hear our thoughts on Faces Places. 

Wayne’s World Analysis — GC #309

March 21st, 2019

The GenreCast continues to march through March and the Women's Appreciation Marathon. This week, we're tackling Penelope Spheeris' Wayne's World, starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey. The popular SNL-sketch-turned-film was a cultural touchstone for many Gen-Xers and cusp millennials. And, we're making this a family affair as Dalton's sister, Carissa drops by to talk about one of the Stuart children's favorite films growing up. We crank it to 11, and drain all of the jelly-filled analysis from Wayne's World. Get into it!

Pet Sematary (1989) Analysis — GC #308

March 14th, 2019

The GenreCast is back and we're joining in on the Women's History Month celebration. This week, we're taking a look at Mary Lambert's Pet Sematary adaptation from 1989. Stephen King's darkest novel made for a cult hit, but does the horror hold up after all these years? We find out. To help us through this, we invited along our very own Frightful Femme, Kirsten Therkelson. We also continue ironing out the kinks in our new format. So, all spoiler bets are off, and we're diving in to dig up the bones of Pet Sematary. Tune in now!

Blade Runner (1982) The Final Cut Analysis — GC #307

March 7th, 2019

Episode 307 of the GenreCast sees the team returning to a normal schedule, at least for this week. Blade Runner has oft been tossed around as a potential subject for the show, and due to recent personal circumstances, it finally landed. Ridley Scott's Blade Runner is available in numerous formats, most notably the theatrical cut (with voiceover), the director's cut and Blade Runner The Final Cut. Blade Runner The Final Cut is the authorized restoration by Ridley Scott without the controversial voice over or Hollywood ending. During this week's episode, the team not only analyzes Blade Runner The Final Cut, but also shakes things up in presentation. It'll take some time to work out the kinks, but soon the show will be running like a well-oiled machine once more. Don't forget to rate, review and subscribe!
