Cinemosity 103 – Tangerine

Cinemosity returns yet again with the news, gossip, and movie talk you crave! CRAVE! Hear about some film and TV awards you should actually pay attention to! Plus Kanye West continues his march to being stuck with no friends left whatsoever, Rob Kardashian drove a BENTLEY for 26 hours to bail out Blac Chyna, and the other Chyna (the former wrestler) appears the most well and calm she has for quite some time and good for her!

Our film this week is the indie festival hit TANGERINE. A beautiful film with many highs and lows, all shot on an iPhone 5s to boot. Seriously, this is one brilliant little indie film and with it being on Netflix to stream, TANGERINE is one to check out especially when you talk to your smug friend. You know the one, they claim to like nothing popular unless they had heard of it first and they only buy things that are described as “artisanal.”

It’s WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH by the way so our next film is OFFICE KILLER starring and directed by awesome ladies! Check it out on the Netflix!

Cinemosity 102 – The Lazarus Effect

 

We’ll warn you up front, this is a grumpy episode. There’s a whole lotta bullshit happening right now and we get into a bunch of it. Kanye West and a host of other raise our ire this week. But at least we have DETECTIVE PIKACHU to save us!

Pikachu the pokemon wearing a sherlock holmes type hat and gesturing angrily

Then we have this week’s movie THE LAZARUS EFFECT which sadly will not provide much in the way of surprises unless you’ve never seen a horror movie before maybe. The cast is great though including Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass.

Our next movie is 2015 film festival darling TANGERINE which is a little bit of a departure for us but we think you’ll dig it. You can find it on Netflix.

Cinemosity 101 – Grand Piano

grand_piano_2It’s the march towards the second 100 episodes with 101! #OscarsSoWhite is still too accurate, some idiot had the gall to CHEAT on the wonderful Tichina Arnold, and black representation in the UK in media gets a huge champion! There’s also Sam Smith making racism about him and talk about that new Suicide Squad trailer.

Then the movie is GRAND PIANO starring Elijah Wood and John Cusack! It’s very silly but very fun with a great performance from Mr. Wood who is a blessing to genre film.

Cinemosity 100th Episode Spectacular!


 

Yeah we know this picture is fake. We don't care.
Yeah we know this picture is fake. We don’t care.

Cinemosity celebrates 100 episodes with a blast by covering two movies: Nic Cage’s STOLEN and SKIN TRADE starring Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa and Michael Jai White! One is surprisingly good, one is disappointingly crap. Also on the show, a look at the recent rash of celebrity deaths including the Thin White Duke David Bowie. The trio speak on the massive, near-half-century career of one of our most important pop culture figures of modern times. There is also much geeking out about STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS with mucho excitement for where things are headed for the series. Thanks for sticking with Cinemosity for 100 episodes!

Our next movie is GRAND PIANO starring Elijah Wood and John Cusak.

Cinemosity 99 – Holiday


holiday_1Cinemosity is one away from going triple digits as the gang celebrates the season with a whole buncha different stories. They also review NBC’s The Wiz Live as well as talk about three recent movie trailers which are a big deal. Then they talk about 2014’s HOLIDAY movie which even by Bollywood’s standards lurches back and forth between two completely different stories. One story is a Mission Impossible-esque terrorist thriller with a leading man who is way too old to be playing the part he’s playing. The other story is a painfully unfunny romantic comedy with a leading man who is way too old to be playing the part he’s playing. It’s all very pretty but it’s incredibly jarring. You can stream it on Netflix if you want to see basically the Bollywood version of Tom Cruise trying to prove he’s still a youthful lead actor.

 

 

Our next episode is a special holiday best-of and then we’ll be back in January with EPISODE 100!!! WHOO HOO!!!

It Came From the Indies – Anguish

Anguish2ANGUISH is the feature directorial debut for Sonny Mallhi, previously a writer and producer for films such as The Strangers and The Roommate. A supernatural indie film it tells the story of a mentally ill teen called Tess, played with spellbinding perfection by 15 year old Ryan Simpkins, and her mother moving to a small rural town. A terrible accident befell another family in that small town where a girl around the same age as Tess was hit by a car and killed. Tess finds herself drawn to the girl’s mother and the question becomes, is Tess’ mental illness partly a gift that is allowing the dead girl to possess her body? Anguish is absolutely gorgeous with uniform fantastic acting performances and is one of the most thoughtful and sensitive portrayals of mental illness yet seen in genre film.

Martin has a short chat with the director about the film, the way he handled the mental illness aspects of the story, and what he got out of exploring these issues and what he learned in making Anguish. This film hit really close to home for Martin in ways you will learn and this beautiful little movie really has appeared out of nowhere right at the end of the year. Want to watch an effective little supernatural tale to come down after seeing that explodey space ship movie? Anguish might be what you’re looking for.

Retro Superplex 4 – Rick & Tito

Keep that garbage can away from your face and check out RETRO SUPERPLEX 4! Martin and Justin are back with another of the hip tossing-est podcast around as they talk WWE Network’s BREAKING GROUND and how it compliments NXT and ultimately that ends up being a little bit about how much better the booking is in NXT compared to RAW. The CAPCOM CUP was this past weekend and they touch on the results and how the fighting game community is finally dragging itself out of the dark ages and is making some important stride towards being more inclusive. Also, there was a FINAL FANTASY VII remake trailer with gameplay! Oh snap!

It Came From the Indies – Hunter Johnson & 2 Jennifer

 

2_jennifer2Hunter Johnson is a young, upcoming and hungry filmmaker and actor making his mark in the indie horror world with his website LA Horror and it’s associated projects. After working on a couple of shorts and filling various roles on other peoples’ projects Hunter seized the opportunity to make 2 JENNIFER. A sequel to James Cullen Bressack’s To Jennifer which was shot entirely on an iPhone 5, this film goes the meta approach by acknowledging the original as a film and takes us on a journey as Spencer (played by Johnson) tries to get a sequel made. 2 Jennifer ups the ante in every way imaginable from the original and it’s great to hear a take from someone really on the way up in the indie horror biz! Look for the movie next year but listen to Hunter Johnson right now!

Check out Hunter’s site LAHORROR.COM where you can find indie horror reviews and the many projects that Hunter has worked on including Knife Party, Melody and Ryth:Genesis.

Retro Superplex 3 – Norman and Chris


kojima_1Retro Superplex is about to hit a high cross-body on your eardrums! Martin and Justin return to talk WWE Shop shaming, Steam Controller using, and in the main event they will fantasy book the career of Hideo Kojima. Despite what Konami might tell you, Mr. Kojima is no longer with the company and your hosts both have career paths for him post-Konami. Where will one of the most beloved video game producers of our time end up next? Only time will tell. Also, Martin provides an utterly foolproof, 100% guaranteed way for Roman Reigns to become the super babyface that WWE wants him to be and it’s SO SIMPLE IT HURTS. Join the gang, won’t you?

Cinemosity 98 – Split Second

split_second2It’s DECEMBER already folks, so hopefully you survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday and are looking forward to the holiday season as much as we are! We got movie news, bad TV shows, and a little trailer for a little movie called CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR dropped. Things get a little fishy around the new MST3K, a cult favorite cartoon returns next year, and Martin gets to laugh about Damon Lindelof admitting he fucked something up AGAIN. Seriously, just google “Damon Lindelof admits” and you’ll see what he’s talking about.

This week’s movie is SPLIT SECOND starring the greatest actor ever Rutger Hauer, Kim Cattrall and a dog whose name is Dickhead. It’s a batshit crazy psycho-thriller-horror which makes no damn sense and it’s great. Go watch it on Youtube or Hulu!

Our next movie is HOLIDAY which is Cinemosity’s first Hindi-language film! So watch that, share and describe and thanks for listening!
