Ep. 341: A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

October 31st, 2019

Episode 314 sees the GenreCast boys get together to cover another total blindspot in Steven Spielberg's A.I. Artificial Intelligence. A project initially undertaken by Stanley Kubrick, A.I. Artificial Intelligence passed to Spielberg following Kubrick's death in 1999. The film's thirty-year journey finally was completed in 2001 when it opened to middling box office and mixed-to-positive reviews. A.I. Artificial Intelligence is the story of a mecha named David, modeled after a child, who goes on a journey of discovery. In doing so, David encounters mechas, humans, his maker and much more. We talk all about authorship, saccharine stories, what it means to be human, and that ending. Tune in now to see where we land on this divisive movie.

Ep. 340: Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)

October 24th, 2019

The GenreCast wraps up Shocktober 8: The Ocho (AKA Dead Spots) with Dalton's blind spot, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. In a fun twist, this was a blind spot for all three hosts. After a few film festival showings, Henry fought the odds and finally received a release and helped anchor the NC-17 rating. The film is an intimate character study about a serial killer, his sidekick, the girl that creeps into his life. Featuring an early A+ Michael Rooker performance, Henry shocks and saddens as it plays its tragic tale out. We discuss serial killer and true crime fascination, production, realism in film and how it factors into fear. So tune in as we pull the train into the station and discuss Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
