Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: INTERSTELLAR

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THIS EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Here's the dilemma: I saw Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey when I was 12 years old, and to say it was a formative experience is an understatement. The film fundamentally changed the way I thought about science fiction, narrative story-telling, and the nature of film itself. Not that I was cognizant of all of that at the time -- I was 12 fer chrissake -- but something in that film set the switch that eventually led to the obsessive film nerd you see before you today.

So when Christopher Nolan lards copious references to that most hallowed of space epics throughout his own epically-proportioned Interstellar -- robots that look like monoliths; resonant organ chords that echo the last few seconds of Also Sprach Zarathustra, no less than two, maybe even three, stargate-like experiences, etc, etc. -- it's hard not to regard it as not so much heartfelt homage as a throwing down of the gauntlet. I was able to work my way around that impulse, and my review of the film for Jim Freund's Hour of the Wolf is able to regard the project for what it is, as well as what it aspires to.

The HTD Express: #22 - The Other Side Of The Desk: An Interview With M. Dal Walton III

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"It’s always scary whenever a screenwriter thinks of the production executive who will oversee their script. But M. Dal Walton III joins me for Episode 22 to tell you why screenwriters have nothing to fear. Dal has served for years as production executive guiding movies such as “Narc”, “Once Fallen”, “16 Blocks” and “Righteous Kill.” Dal tells us about how a production executive is there to help a script become the best movie possible. Yes, it’s true – they’re actually on the screenwriter’s side!

Dal has also worked as a manager for years and goes into detail about the manager/screenwriter relationship. Dal is now moving to the other side of the desk becoming a director and writer himself. Having seen many changes in the business over the years, Dal gives some great observations about why this is one of the best times to be screenwriter or director in Hollywood. An invaluable and experienced source of how it works inside a production company, Dal is very generous here with his insight. This interview is helpful to screenwriters everywhere whatever their skill level. Grab a pen, take some notes and enjoy."

Presenting the Transcription Feature: FIBBER MCGEE & MOLLY/THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THIS EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

This December I’m going to run all Christmas-themed shows.  We begin with another episode of Fibber McGee and Molly.  This episode is nearly 70 years old, but we see that some things never change.  Fibber and Molly have to go to the post office to mail off some Christmas presents, and the lines were just as long and annoying then as they still are today.  Then Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson recounts another of The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  It’s Christmas Eve and the good Doctor has agreed to dress up as Santa Claus (uh, Father Christmas) for a children’s party.  Will Holmes get to spend a quiet evening at home?  Not on your Fezziwig . . .

The CFQ Interview: Director Alexandre Aja on HORNS

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Dan Persons says:

A break from the standard Halloween fare of mad slashers and paranormal infestations, the new film HORNS brings a decidedly hometown slant to an examination of the good and evil that lives in all of us. Daniel Radcliffe plays Ig, a man (yes, man — we’re a long way from Hogwart’s) whose status within his small town after he’s accused of murdering his girlfriend isn’t at all helped once he starts growing a very Satanic pair of horns on his head. That these new appendages also compel people to confess their darkest desires and allow Ig to control their actions could be the double-edged sword that indicts him for his sins, or helps him find his love’s true murderer.

Director Alexandre Aja takes the wry intensity he brought to such projects as the remake of THE HILLS HAVE EYES and PIRHANA 3D, and turns it to a more Stephen Kingesque pallet with HORNS — not surprising, since the original novel was written by King’s son, Joe Hill. I got a chance to talk with Aja about his decision to steer his style in a new direction, working with Radcliffe, and more in this latest podcast. Click on the player to hear the show.
