Infinite Respawncast – End of 2015 Debates

Chris and Dylan sharpen their knives, detach themselves from any emotional connections, lock themselves in rooms across the country from each other, and yell about the best acting (male and female), best cinematography, best screenplay, best directing and the best scenes in film of 2015. Next week we will have our personal year-end lists for the best and worst films of 2015. There should not be any debates, just lots of us being excited about the year in film.

Horror Nights 2015 – Week Three

Tales of Halloween

This is the week when I get to see a bunch of newer horror films and shorts, courtesy of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. I intend to write full reviews for a couple of these, but for now, here are my brief thoughts. I’m going to get some classic horror films in for the last week of Horror Nights. I might also add that the post for that week will not go up until the day after Halloween, so ideally there will be more movies on there than normal.

Infinite Respawncast – Beasts of Crimson Peak

Chris and Dylan record a podcast during the Federal election for Canada, right after Star Wars tickets go on sale and a new trailer is released, and still late at night. They discuss Crimson Peak and Bridge of Spies, while Dylan talks about Dope, and Chris talks The Hallow (showing at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival) and Beasts of No Nation. And news? We’ve got news. Luc Besson finally gets what he deserves, and Doug Liman may be signing up for failure or preparing to finally shine bright in Gambit. Next week we are not going to be able to avoid talking about Steve Jobs, but know how much Chris wants to see The Last Witch Hunter.

Show Notes:

(3:25) These Star Wars tickets seem to be a really hot commodity, and we situated ourselves right in the middle of that chaos
(6:38) We talk Crimson Peak in extreme depth
(35:24) Crimson Peak Spoilers!
(51:45) Doug Liman might be directing Gambit – a movie we both are not looking forward to
(54:27) John Carpenter got to tell Luc Besson that Lock Out was a rip off of Escape from New York, in a court of law.
(60:18) New Releases
(70:04) Dope 
(73:30) The Hallow 
(79:04) IMDB harasses us with a User-voted Top 25 TV Shows list that we can’t help but dissect
