I’m happy to say I didn’t see very many bad films in 2014, but that also made it difficult to narrow down my 10 favorites and choose which ones I liked better than the other. Nonetheless, I’m proud of my outcome. Hope you enjoyed your movie going experiences and check out some of these films you may have missed. Before we get started, here are some honorable mentions…
This Week Blaise and James discuss “The Guest”. We also take a look at the trailer for “American Sniper” and discuss the return of Twin Peaks. James gets a chance to talk to Leonardo Ramirez about his film “The Jupiter Chronicles”. We close out our thoughts on our Back to school cinema series.
Q&A for “The Guest” Screening moderated by Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Valhalla Rising) w/ Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett from Sundance Nextfest at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on August 10th, 2014.
This Week we are joined by staff writer Becca Noble to review “You’re Next” directed by Adam Wingard and we finish up our Controversial cinema series with Gaspar Noe’s “Irreversible”. We Also have a special Q&A from the You’re Next Screening at Comicon.
Make sure to check out You’re Next while its in theaters nationwide! Irreversible is available on Netflix instant currently.
I’m not going to go on for pages about how much I loved You’re Next and how great of a film it actually is (I’ll save that for the podcast). I will just say if you love genre films you will love You’re Next. Director Adam Wingard’s You’re Next entails a family reunion being invaded by masked assailants, similar to the plot of home invasion films like The Strangers or Them. Writer Simon Barrett takes a overdone home invasion theme and makes it fresh, and more importantly fun again, with clever writing. The trailer for You’re Next does this film no justice what so ever. Take a chance and go see You’re Next not only because its a great film, but because it is important to support an independent like this film.
