Projecting LATE NIGHT as THE LATE SHIFT and MORNING GLORY

September 4, 2019

LateNightPROMO.jpg

Amazon is bringing Mindy Kaling's LATE NIGHT to it's Prime streaming service so that all of you who ignored its brief theatrical release can now ignore it in your digital video queue. What can't be ignored is your beloved hosts expansive knowledge on the format of talk shows... as long as said talk shows are featured in movies that they've seen. Two of them would be the HBO television movie THE LATE SHIFT from 1996 and the even more dated 2010 theatrical release MORNING GLORY from the natural collaborators JJ Abrams and Richard Curtis. Also we talk extensively about the time James Spader got buff.

NightmareOfUnicornStore2.jpgIn what is the first time (at least in podcast form) that childhood friends Mike and Josh of SOBER CINEMA decide to cross streams we exchange two films we each wanted the other to cross off their streaming list.

For Josh he finally gets Mike to check out the documentary on sleep paralysis THE NIGHTMARE from 2015. In turn... Mike goes nuclear by throwing the glittery directing debut of Brie Larson in UNICORN STORE.

Fun times are had by all. Click these things now:

Projecting 10 Years of ADVENTURELAND

Projecting 10 Years of ADVENTURELAND

projectingadventureland.jpgHere's a little something for a long holiday road trip (presumably to an amusement park if you really want to play along) with an episode on 10 years of ADVENTURELAND in our lives. Actually one host never got around to seeing it during its first decade of existence, so thanks to the great charity work of PROJECTING FILM... here we are.

For THE SUN IS ALSO A STARtwo old white guys subject their poor guest Berook Alemayehu, formerly of the great podcast CINEMABUN, to their views on immigration... but only in film. Our selected double feature on this subject includes Chiwetel Eijofor in a not quite OCEAN'S 11 style of fun heist for DIRTY PRETTY THINGSand Richard Jenkins as perennial man about to blow his brains out in THE VISITOR.

We also make fun of drummers and bass players. Our impotent rage knows no end.

Projecting LONG SHOT as ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO and TAKE THIS WALTZ

Projecting LONG SHOT as ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO and TAKE THIS WALTZ

April 30, 2019

On this episode we guess that the new film LONG SHOTstarring Seth Rogen as the forever unfuckable is just the latest in this real life ogre's filmography of strangely being chosen by beautiful women. So do we go with Kevin Smith's 2008 film where America was disgusted by Elizabeth Banks choosing to have sex with this man in ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO. Or perhaps we side with our neighbors to the north where Michelle Williams decides that she's had enough of a cleaned up Mr. Rogen in Sarah Polley's TAKE THIS WALTZ.

Along the way your hosts Chris & Mike discuss the decline of narrative in pornography and possibly the declining state of one host's marriage. It's a real treat for you people.

Projecting SHAZAM! as Not as Sexy as BIG w/ Podstalgic

April 23, 2019

For the week of AVENGERS: ENDGAME we talk about superhero movies attempting to shake things up and there's no better guest to do that than Peter of PODSTALGIC... because he's kind of tired of superhero movies... and he doesn't seem that enthused with DC making their superhero version of BIG with SHAZAM... so we project some other things to watch instead. Enthusiastically. Now enthusiastically click these links:

Ep. 24 - They Remain (The Shining meets It Follows)

January 11, 2019

We prepare ourselves for the year ahead in 2019 by looking back to the scariest film of 2018: Philip Gelatt's THEY REMAIN. The title could also apply to this very podcast which is probably equally as terrifying for PROJECTING FILM listeners. For now your hosts combine two things that very much scare us in our conversation on THE SHINING and IT FOLLOWS: rules and sex. Unable to follow the thread of either we instead podcast at the links below:

UnitedWeFanPROMO.jpg

For our comeback episode we give our dozens of fans exactly what they want... an episode on how insane fans are. But in a good way! UNITED WE FAN looks at a now decades long tradition of dedicated fans saving their favorite low rated shows which creates both a positive and negative influence on the material being saved. One host is reminded of the turn made in a previous documentary as everything we thought we know may not be entirely accurate in CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS. Meanwhile your other host chooses to think happy thoughts in the new year and how pop culture pushes us all to find our own love story in LOVE, SIMON. Also we discuss the most depressing Super Bowl party in history. PROJECTING FILM... right back on brand at these links below:

Thanks to the Nashville Film Festival we were able to check out THE SCENT OF RAIN AND LIGHTNING which stars Maika Monroe, a young actress who first got our attention in IT FOLLOWS. Maybe with that on the brain we ended up with an episode theme based around another previous rising star in Jennifer Lawrence and in particular her roles in feuding family films THE BURNING PLAIN and WINTER'S BONE. Thankfully (?) for our listeners this is a far more agreeable episode and we woiuld be even more agreeable if you gave us a follow at the links below:

Ep. 21 - The Party (Rebecca meets Rope)

February 27, 2018

ThePartyPROMO.jpg

On this episode we throw a Hitchcock themed podcast party for Sally Potter's new film THE PARTY. This Kristen Scott Thomas and Patricia Clarkson starring movie is fast, aggressive, and darkly funny; which means that this cast of characters would fit in nicely at a dinner party to celebrate getting away with murder in the 1948 classic ROPE. Or maybe the focus would be on the missing guest such as in the other Alfred Hitchcock joint REBECCA? We'll let you decide as you can listen to the episode and give us feedback at the links below:
