TCMP #4 – Poltergeist (w/ Kip Mooney)

This is the first review of a pretty irredeemably bad movie. I talk with Central Track movie critic Kip Mooney first briefly about how it happens that we end up talking about something neither of us like much and then about the Poltergeist re-make. We dig into our specific problems with the movie, what we felt could have made it into a good movie and why the ending is so logically frustrating.

TCMP #3 – It Follows (w/ Ryan Maffei)

 

This is a movie I went into without expectations and left feeling like I had to talk about it. It nails a lot of the things I spend most of my time worrying about. Rather than worrying about fears for a scary monster we all know doesn’t really exist, it deals with the dread we know too well from feeling it every day. What’s more scary than the creeping sense that nothing we do will really change anything and that death awaits regardless? I say nothing.

Talking about all that and more is my childhood buddy Ryan Maffei. He is a Robert-Christgau-reviewed musical artist, liner note author and all-around really smart, artful dude who can string a great conversation.

TCMP #2 – Ex Machina (w/ Skyler Thiot)

After the first podcast, a ton of people said that a movie that got into AI a lot is Ex Machina. Little did they know, that was already slotted for the second one. We also talk about the movie Moon, since they deal with some similar things. The co-host this week, Skyler Thiot, is the dude who so graciously designed the logo for TC’s Movie Podcast and is an all-around good dude to talk to.

TCMP Prologue – True Story (w/ Mike Marshall)

Recorded a few weeks back as a tune-up, TC and Mike Marshall discuss True Story, starting with the realization that the movie is based on a true story. Mike is a TV producer and member of the Ticket weekend show Cirque Du Sirois. TC was disappointed the movie did not pay off its satanic suggestions. Mike has some quality suggestions on where to hide a body.
