Debt to Cinema 111: The Seventh Seal

With social dynamics shifting, movies moving further out of the cinema, and having conversations over the internet being more en vogue than ever, we felt a debt at the end of 2020 to say something again. The episode was supposed to be topical and on a film set within a similar plague, but Steven’s subtitle is more accurate than the title itself. Two years removed from eXistenZ, these are our “Reflections on Maintaining a Podcast and the Current State of Entertainment.”

Two Cents 084: I Just Can’t Wait to Be King

The episode in which we intro a new segment, Hulu might be producing a shared Stephen King universe show, Amazon’s Costume Quest series(!!!), hiphoptherobot’s early Nintendo Switch delivery, Donald Glover is Simba 2.0, and the first wedding hosted in VR. Steve watched Justice League Dark, Harold Lloyd’s Speedy, and Flyboys; while I caught John Wick Chapter 2, went further into Lego Dimensions, and started Grim Fandango. Plus, IMAX VR’s first Experience Centre, developments in staged VR, and how all three can learn from Japanese arcades, Microsoft bolstering voice recognition, Pewdiepie’s anti-semetic fall from grace, Roman Polanski, Mel Gibson, all telecos now offer unlimited LTE plans, and A Cure For Wellness advertising with fake news.

Debt to Cinema 021: A Matter of Life and Death

Its (roughly) Valentine’s Day, so Steve thought it would be appropriate to have me watch one of his favorite romantic movies. Despite this dual titled film being great, I really wish I could give my approval of the relationship at the crux of the story.

Debt to Cinema 020: Run Lola Run

I wasn’t paying attention and accidentally jacked Steve’s pick this week. He agreed my Groundhog Day tribute episode should be released as intended, plus its only a matter of time until someone makes a mistake. Join us for this German, frenetic, experimental film about the possibilities of escaping one.
