Hooked on a Feeling: Wonderful Williams September 10, 2017

After several delays, we bring you the first of a three episode look at three movies starring Robin Williams! During this first episode, “Hooked on a Feeling: Wonderful Williams”, our hosts discuss the movie Hook (1991) which also stars Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts, Bob Hoskins, Maggie Smith, et al. This whimsical look at an older Peter Banning (ie Peter PAN) is essentially the live action sequel that we didn’t know we wanted. Join us as we think of happy thoughts and aim for the second star to the right and journey straight on ‘till morning!

Speaking of stars, visit our iTunes page and leave a review or give us a rating!

Free 4 All!—IT!! September 10, 2017

This episode, Joe shares his takeaways from the horror film It (2017) based on a Stephen King novel currently out in movie theaters (which he saw yesterday). Joe and Juan focus on Joe’s experience watching IT (2017), but Juan also talks about changes in Directors for Star Wars: Episode 9, schedule delays in production and kind of rants about the Crisis on Umbara content release from Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Join us next week as we switch gears and focus on ONE movie starring Robin Williams and find out which one! Schedule conflicts and format changes have prompted us to (once again) push this promised episode out another week. Choices will be Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society and Hook.

*Correction: Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall (who had worked with Lucas previously) and George Lucas had an exchange, NOT James Cameron. See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhQPu-5C-WY

This week we had the censor ducks back in the studio to mitigate the fowl language under new terms of employment as per the spirit of Labor Day. For those who had to work today and those who are bbq’ing, take a minute to appreciate the protections and freedoms that a safer, more worker-centric employment culture affords.

“Damnnnn Disney!” Free 4 All! August 20, 2017

This week our hosts switch gears and take a look at the Disney company’s road map for movie releases going into the year 2020. They pulled their source from an article posted by Businessinsider.com here: http://www.businessinsider.com/disney-movie-schedule-2017-to-2020-2017-8/#mena-massoud-and-naomi-scott-will-play-aladdin-and-princess-jasmine-respectively-there-is-no-set-date-yet-for-the-adaptation-73

They dish out their initial thoughts regarding many of these releases and offer some brief (and adult oriented) feedback regarding the many sequels and live-action reboots that are to come.

They also discussed the possibility of an Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film that was hinted at here: https://www.yahoo.com/movies/star-wars-obi-wan-kenobi-standalone-film-works-205111373.html

Joe asked Juan what his preference would be for primary protagonist in a Star Wars character standalone film and Juan gets both defensive and hopeful regarding his choice(s). *correction: Kathleen Kennedy discussed possible candidates earlier this year at Star Wars Celebration, not D23*

Join us next week as we conduct another “Movie Roulette” where we will each be given a film starring Robin Williams to review! Tune in and find out which films we assign each other!!

During this episode, Joe and Juan return to the studio to chat about news in entertainment, an older Paul Thomas Anderson film called “Hard Eight” (1996), Woody Harrelson’s feedback regarding Ron Howard taking the helm of the Han Solo film and the recent behind-the-scenes trailer from The Last Jedi (1997).

We had to release our last group of ducks back to the wild and didn’t edit any curse words; be warned. Juan awoke from a nap and was in a rare, post-nap state of confusion.

Our hosts happily return to the studio after a week away and pay homage to educators as today is National Teachers Day.

They dip into the film world and discuss Lean on Me 1989) with Morgan Freeman, Stand and Deliver (1988) with Edward James Olmos and Dead Poet Society (1989) starring Robin Williams and acknowledge the importance of educators (of all kinds).

The new official trailer for Blade Runner: 2049 (2017) was released recently and we sat back to watch it (as Sean had not seen it yet) and speculate it's potential for pleasing the audiences.

The boys kick around a new idea for the next upcoming Movie Roulette and are slated to return to the studio next week to record.

This week we focus on:

Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and adapted from the Upton Sinclair novel Oil!, this 2007 release earned Robert Elswit and Daniel Day-Lewis an Oscar in 2008. Starring Day-Lewis and Paul Dano (et, al), this adaptation takes place in the early 20th century during the expansion of petroleum toward the Pacific Ocean from the Kern County area circa 1917-1927. Day-Lewis portrays Daniel Plainview, a silver miner turned oil tycoon whose driving motivation to exist is to compete and succeed alone in achieving his goals. This film is beautifully directed and Day-Lewis' portrayal is as harrowing as Marlin Brando in Apocalypse Now and explores the human condition and fanatic zealotry from capitalists and Evangelicals alike. It questions motivation, ethos, religious conviction, alcoholism and obsessive narcissistic goal setting.

Listen to our show as we explore this exceptional film, and if you have not seen it, please DO SO!

  • Estimated budget: $25M
  • US opening weekend sales: $302, 845

Welcome to The Stone Turntable!!

This week our hosts run through an extensive “Trailer Trashed” where they watched the following trailers: Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Spiderman: Homecoming (2017), Justice League (2017) and It (2017). As usual, there is some small discussion about Paul Thomas Anderson, a Star Wars mention and duck feathers all over the studio.

Our hosts also watched a film they usually wouldn’t watch to “break out of their bubble”. Films included Captain Fantastic (2016) starring Viggo Mortenson, The Notebook (2004) with Ryan Gosling and Blair Witch (2016). Our hosts discuss many social themes found in Captain Fantastic, the direction (or many) of comic book-turned-movie franchises and even defend Michael Bay’s work (kind of).

Welcome to The Stone Turntable!

-A Short Blog-

Fire and Ice Cover

Tonight one of our hosts watched Fire and Ice (1983) again which was directed by Ralph Bakshi and co-produced by legendary fantasy artist Frank Frazetta. This is a reposted snippet they wrote from one of their Facebook groups:

"I imagine that writers and creative development at Blizzard took inspiration for Rexxar and Arthas from Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta's Fire and Ice (1983). See characters Darkwolf and Nekron for visual comparison. "Nekron"...implies necromancer, of which Death knights are akin and Arthas very closely resembles; "Darkwolf" implies the lone wolf archetype which is the core of Rexxar's biographical background. Both wield a bow and an axe with proficiency. I recently remarked how "we all stand on the shoulders of giants"; the main point being we take inspiration from and emulate those who came before us. We are influenced by the preceding and strike forth with aspiration to become the forthcoming. The saying isn't intended to diminish or cheapen today's efforts but to express gratitude and (*often*) due credit to our historical fundamental knowledge.
Oh yeah, if you watch the credits, Thomas Kinkade (yes, "The Painter of Light") is credited as the Background Painter.
Here's a link to his website:
https://thomaskinkade.com/artist/"

With the fantasy genre on FIRE within the movie industry for the last decade and better (Harry Potter, LotR, Game of Thrones, etc), our host isn't "waxing nostalgia" but peering back into the history of film and entertainment to recognize the efforts of pioneers whose work has been critical in shaping the entertainment world as we know it today.

It is good to look back, reflect, educate and appreciate the huge body of work that has directly contributed to the entertainment landscape we navigate and (hopefully) enjoy today.

Reflect. Imagine. Create.

During this week's episode, our ducky friends are still missing in action after the Saint Patrick's Day show and weren't in the booth to mitigate any swearing. Our hosts briefly (and almost rhetorically) discuss the origins of curse words, ranted about the black morass that can be the Facebook experience, touch on Citizen Kane and its popularity and (somewhere in there), the fate of Juan’s original copies of Spawn #1-5. !".

This week our hosts put a set of actors and movie titles on the hot plate to be rated. Movies this week were Ocean's Eleven (2001), Heat (1995) and The Untouchables (1987). Actors were: Kurt Russell, Bruce Willis and Robert DeNiro. Joe dodges the bullet and avoids having to rate his favorite Tarantino movies and the guys talk at length about From Dusk Till Dawn (1996).

This week's episode covers some Steven Segal movies from the 1990's, speculations about Logan and the upcoming Infinity War film, consumer sentiments regarding cinema and gaming and then a lengthy discussion of Star Wars ensued (who knew?!).

Our hosts dredge up a little known movie called Dark Harbor (1998) starring Alan Rickman and Norman Reedus which left one of our hosts dubiously skeptical after watching just a few minutes of it.

We are ramping things up next week with our first annual Saint Patrick's Day podcast!

A Texas native, Paxton had many supporting roles in films including Aliens, Terminator, Predator 2, Commando, Weird Science, Tombstone, Apollo 13, Titanic and starred in the movie Twister with Helen Hunt. His body of work included directing, founding member of the band Martini Ranch, music videos, voice over work in a video game and a lot of television work over his career. He was nominated for an Emmy for his work on Hatfield and McCoys.  He is largely remembered by coworkers throughout his career as a generous, kind human being and a pleasure to work with. See Twitter for many reactions from those who worked with him; Tom Hanks and Paxton became close friends during the filming of Apollo 13 and posted a brief message about Paxton.  (from imdb.com, Wikipedia.com, yahoo.com and ABC News).

Our sincerest condolences to friends, family and coworkers impacted the greatest by his passing.

Welcome to Movie Roulette!!!

This week our hosts strap on our body armor and take pot-shots at one another and discuss three movies during this installment. Our hosts discuss Cocoon 2 (1988) with Jessica Tandy, Nothing to Lose (1997) with Tim Robbins and Zardoz (1974) starring Sean Connery.

One of our hosts willfully criticizes the "body of work" of Nicholas Cage in a salty rant about being a responsible adult, talk of a new upcoming segment and an exploration of drug-influenced movies in cinema during the 1970's were tabled during this episode.

Joe laments that the IMDB message boards are no longer going to continue, Juan didn't fully recap Nothing to Lose and wings it poorly. Sean almost got lost in the morass that was quite possibly one of the worst movies in Sean Connery's career. "ZARDOZ!!!"

Our hosts also discuss the history of the famous "Wilhelm Scream" (near 18:00 mark). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_scream

 

NSFW/Explicit Rating!!!! Ya been warned. Many times.

 

*Corrections:

Howard the Duck was directed by Willard Huyck.

Welcome to The Stone Turntable!

Love is in the air as our salty hosts stomp on the flowers, eat all the chocolates and host another round of Marry, Quack, Kill as well as talked about their opinions about Kubo and the Two Strings. At the request of a new listener, Joe spoke briefly about Split and gave M.Night Shamalan some good marks.

We talk briefly about today's holiday and wish you and those you love a safe Valentine's Day.

Spread the Love.

Reap the blessings of mirth.

Don't be a shithead.
