OTB Movie Podcast 6: The Runaways
It’s also with great sadness that we bid a fond farewell to Emily who’s going to be moving on from OTB, so this is unfortunately her last podcast. Life in the office just won’t be the same.
00.13 – Christina Hendricks to star in the new Nicholas Winding Refn film Drive alongside Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan. Christina’s um…assets and that Emmy dress.
02.26 – Ruben Fleischer to direct Zombieland 2 and it will be in 3D.
04.30 – Rick Moranis might come out of retirement for Ghostbusters 3.
07.00 – The London Film Festival Press Launch. Importantly, there was chocolate. Clips of 42 movies that will feature and the highlights:
07.38 – Never Let Me Go will open the Festival – Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield star. The trailer doesn’t give much away as Emily found out.
12.06 – 127 Hours will close the Festival. James Franco stars in the story of Aron Ralston, a rock climber from Utah. The best title for a biography ever.
14.04 – The King’s Speech – An all star cast. Jamie and Emily have a stutter-off.
16.52 – Black Swan – Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis star in this ballet-themed psychological drama.
17.29 – Howl – Allen Ginsberg biopic starring James Franco (again). Looks great. Jamie’s not convinced by biopics.
20.20 – Let Me In. American adaptations… Vampire movies.
23.23 – It’s Kind Of A Funny Story. Self-consciously indie comedy?
25.57 – Conviction. Hilary Swank’s Oscar-Baiting Challenge. “Emotional” movies – The Soloist, The Blind Side, Changeling.
30.40 – Others to look out for – Lemmy, The Great White Silence, Rare Exploits: A Christmas Tale.
31.21 – Alamar. A father and son fishing trip in Mexico. Beautiful but no one will see it. The best fishing movie of the year?
33.27 – Cyrus – Great performances particularly from Jonah Hill but not really funny enough.
37.26 – The Runaways – Kristen Stewart gets Emily’s feet tapping. Jamie plugs his ears and bashes Dakota Fanning. Lemmy kicks ass.
45.46 – My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done. Werner Herzog and David Lynch disappoint Jamie.
51.13 – Tamara Drewe shocks Emily and Jez by being absolutely brilliant.
1.01.15 – Jamie’s friend asks Peter Bogdanovich a question about phallic imagery. Drumming with penises.
1.02.55 – Apologies for not reviewing Resident Evil 3D and Going The Distance – the tube strike got us.
1.03.12 – Back To The Future gets a re-release. It’s predictably one of the best things ever. Emily is converted.
1.07.30 – A sad farewell to Emily.
