The Gaff #013: Ghostbusters, The Killing Joke, SDCC Trailers

The Gaff Podcast | 3000px LQ10 Artwork

Who you gonna call? We finally get to discuss Ghostbusters (2016). Plus, all the big trailers out of San Diego Comic-Con and the controversial DC animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke.

WEEKLY REWIND:

Luke finished up Silicon Valley S3 and Veep S5. Sam checked out the Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition cut. The boys both saw Batman: The Killing Joke and let’s just say it didn’t meet expectations.

TRAILERS OF SDCC 2016:

A ton of trailers our of Comic-Con and we cover the big ones: Ash vs. Evil Dead S2, The Walking Dead S7, Marvel’s Iron Fist / Luke Cage / The Defenders, Doctor Strange, Kong: Skull Island, Blair Witch, Wonder Woman, Justice League.

TOPIC: GHOSTBUSTERS (2016)

In our very first episode we talked about the first trailer for this film, at length, and reasoned why it was such a bad preview. The film is much better than you would expect from that misguided marketing material.

During our debrief we cover the film’s tone and humour, its odd pace, the sci-fi/paranormal elements, cameos, Holtzmann, the missing dance sequence and the importance of the film whether you liked it or not.

The Gaff #011: Cleverman S1 Premiere & Hunt for the Wilderpeople

The Gaff Podcast | 3000px LQ10 Artwork

THIS WEEK:


Two much-anticipated titles are the topic this week, as the boys talk about Taika Waititi’s charming new film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and the first episode of ABC’s indigenous, sci-fi, superhero drama Cleverman.

We have a brief discussion about Event Cinemas’ In The House screenings, get excited over Hayden Orpheum Cremorne’s Hitchcock Festival announcement, talk about Festival Jenga, and Sam even numbers off his Top Ten films of the year so far.

WEEKLY REWIND:

Sam saw Robert Eggers’ The Witch and Shane Black’s buddy cop comedy noir The Nice Guys. Luke mentions new graphic novel adaptations for TV; Preacher and Outcast.

DOLLARS FOR DOCS:

The Wolfpack; about a reclusive family of brothers for whom movies were their only escape. Plastic Galaxy; a nostalgic look at the vintage Kenner toys that Star Wars fans in the ’70’s held in such high regard. The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin; that aims to explain the digital currency and its journey toward acceptance. Sam chimes in with his own doc recommendations.

TRAILERS OF THE WEEK:

Absurd or appealing? As we look at the early announcement teaser for Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Will the upcoming release of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition improve upon the already-long theatrical release?

We talk about our local classic cinemas and how you can support them, in light of the New Beverly-centric classic cinema doc; Out of Print.

Luke Scott, son of Ridley, helms his first film, a ‘geneticists play God’ thriller that looks to meld Splice and Ex Machina; Morgan. An Australian satire, likely to be extremely controversial, about the day after the Cronulla riots; Down Under.

TOPIC: HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE

We get stuck into Taika Waititi’s new New Zealand classic; Hunt for the Wilderpeople. We look back at What We Do In the Shadows, and look forward to Thor: Ragnarok. Luke covers Wilderpeople tidbits revealed in the Q&A screening he attended with Fergus.

The film looks beautiful thanks to the New Zealand landscapes and is utterly charming and funny thanks to its talented cast. We don’t want to spoil the movie, so we move right along to another thing we’ve been waiting for…

TOPIC: CLEVERMAN S01E01


An Australian production, an original indigenous story brought to life with a largely aboriginal cast. That alone would be amazing but it’s also a high-quality, kick-ass, sci-fi, superhero drama.

We cover everything in its first episode from the opening Australian hip hop title music through the censorship of the Sundance broadcast, Sam and Luke’s favourite secondary actors and the world-building on display in the show’s slang, visuals and production design.

The show is extremely well-written and a great pilot to setup the show. Ryan J Griffen created this show for his own kid and both he and everyone involved should be proud. Hunter Page Lochard and Rob Collins carry the show with a believable brotherly dynamic that promises to be the highlight of the series.

We break down the catalyst moment in the show’s opening few minutes and theorise about which direction the show might take over the season and the series. We talk about casting choices Jack Charles and Iain Glen.

This is an ambitious series and we encourage you to check it out before listening to our discussion. Let’s hope there’s even more high production value shows in Australia’s future.

CREATIVE CONTRIBUTIONS:

If you’ve got mad Photoshop skills, mock up a movie poster or blu-ray cover for “Beauty and the Chew” starring Emma Watson alongside Peter Mayhew as The Beast, and send it through. We’ll showcase it on our social media and give you a shoutout on the show.

The Gaff #010: Cinematic Games & Our Gaming Histories

The Gaff Podcast | 3000px LQ10 Artwork

THIS WEEK:

We discuss cinematic games, which leads to our gaming histories through consoles, handhelds and computers where we name check some our favourite games and moments.

WEEKLY REWIND:

Sams tells us about creepy supernatural doll horror, The Boy. We muse over whether The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan has what it takes to be a final girl. Sam talks about braving more horror films lately including classics Exorcist and Rosemary’s Baby. We also refer to The Conjuring, The Evil Dead, The Loved Ones and The Tunnel.

Luke’s been finishing out the seasons for a slew of superhero shows and calls out the Ultron reference in Legends of Tomorrow, as well as the coincidental plot point of using holograms in both Agents of SHIELD and Legends.

TRAILERS OF THE WEEK:

Our first episode revolved around the much-maligned first trailer for Ghostbusters. This week we talk about the much better second trailer and speculate about the plot. Will it be a Star Wars: The Force Awakens type deal? Will they give us Vigo in the sequel? Can Luke sell Sam on Star Trek Beyond which also had a controversial first trailer?

Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The BFG gets a new trailer, complete with CGI Mark Rylance from Bridge of Spies. We’re also intrigued by the trailer out of Cannes for Olivier Assayas’ next film with Kristen Stewart, Personal Shopper. Plus Sams has a secret trailer to share with Luke.

TOPIC OF THE WEEK: CINEMATIC GAMING & OUR GAMING HISTORIES

What starts as a discussion stemming from Sam playing Uncharted 4 on cinematic games, evolves into an overall recap of our gaming histories. We cover the consoles, handhelds and games that meant the most to us and our gamer status today. It’s not too specific, but fans should enjoy hearing about our interests in the gaming sphere.

While we name check a number of individual titles and franchises, we also cover a number of gaming topics: evolution of graphics and its effect on narrative, handheld vs console, adventure games, open world sandboxes, annual franchise instalments, first-person shooters, LAN parties and online multiplayer, emulation, immersion, soundtracks, building a gaming PC, nostalgia, and the updated Playstation on the horizon.

CREATIVE CONTRIBUTIONS:

If you’ve got mad Photoshop skills, mock up a game case or gameplay still for what Sams and I would get up to in digital form, and send it through. We’ll showcase it on our social media and give you a shoutout on the show.

The Gaff #009: Stan’s Wolf Creek

The Gaff Podcast | 3000px LQ10 Artwork

THIS WEEK:

We substitute our regular weekly rewind segment to share our excitement over the Sydney Film Festival programme being revealed. We give you a taste of a few films, running through our picks, films we decided not to see, and which films both boys are seeing.

Luke plays Nashen’s real voice for Sam, and the boys dream of becoming fast friends with the Festival Director. Sam makes the prediction of 10 more films coming out of Cannes [edit: Whoa! Spot on!] and tells us about seeing the film schedule while at work.

Sam’s coming at this festival as his ‘learn to swim’ moment, whereas Luke has been going for the past few years. We won’t list all the titles here, check out the episode. We’ll have potential reviews and discussion coming in the Festival episode/s ahead once we decide on the format. Maybe we’ll record on the road.

WEEKLY REWIND:

Well, we sort of cover some viewing. During the trailers segment, Sam and Luke spontaneously talk about the genius of The Knick. Sam’s only seen one episode so far, but we have a lot to say about the production design, the music, the medical gore, Soderbergh’s retirement, picking up the title on sale, the possibility of a third season and comparing it to Fargo.

TRAILERS OF THE WEEK:

Yoga Hosers looks to be quite light in tone, which we expected from Smith’s Opera House talk, and even Sam as a devout Kevin Smith fan isn’t expecting too much. But we are excited for the proper debut of Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp and the sheer absurdity of the Bratzis.

Assassin’s Creed is revealed in a Kanye soundtracked teaser that shows off the production design and location shooting. We talk percentage of past versus present, Marion Cotillard and ask if the photos better than the trailer.

Sam talks social media and technology gone wrong in modern thriller Nerve. Starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco, Sam gives a plot synopsis and we talk about the colourful look of the film.

On a roll with the plot recaps, Sam tells us about Don’t Breathe, a tense looking thriller with Stephen Lang as a gruff, dangerous blind man stalking teens that have invaded his home. We talk about the editing of the US trailer being much better and not wanting to sit through 5-second previews for previews.

Outcast, a show all about demonic possession, is on our radar for being an adaptation of Robert Kirkman material alone. But the visuals are slick and this Cinemax series could be the best horror show on TV when it airs. We talk about other horror shows and trip down a rabbit hole, going from The Omen to Richard Donner to Lethal Weapon to Rush Hour.

We also look at the intriguing trailer for The Accountant starring Ben Affleck and its use of droning and repetition. Plus, Ethan Hawke being an abusive dad in baseball drama The Phenom. Luke’s excited for Park Chan Wook’s latest, The Handmaiden, and also recommends you check out trailers of Into the Forest, The Woods, The Shallows and Hell or High Water.

TOPIC OF THE WEEK: STAN’S WOLF CREEK

The Stan Original series Wolf Creek picks up where the Australian horror classic film franchise left off as Lucy Fry’s Eve finds her family slaughtered and sets off on a path of revenge against John Jarratt’s Mick Taylor. We’ve been looking forward to this series for a while, here at The Gaff!

After Sams give a brief synopsis, the boys discuss; the writing and structure of the series, exploration of recurring characters including Uncle Jack Charles, impressive location filming, the amount of nudity and gore, homages and connections to the films, episode pacing, viewing statistics, iconic horror villain Mick Taylor and his backstory, Lucy Fry’s performance and Eve’s trajectory, and even (without spoilers!) the finale and possibilities for a second season.

A good portion of the discussion revolves around the malevolent, unforgiving landscape in this and a number of Australian films which seems to manifest these characters. We recommend some titles that feel similar, including; The Rover, Strangerland, These Final Hours, The Hunter, and even Chopper, and Lantana.

FAST FORWARD:

The boys buzz about Cleverman, another original Australian drama series coming to ABC, the future of Stan, our upcoming gaming episode and the Sydney Film Festival.

CREATIVE CONTRIBUTIONS:

If you’ve got mad Photoshop skills, mock up a movie poster or blu-ray cover for what you imagine “Wolf Creek 3“ would look like, and send it through. We’ll showcase it on our social media and give you a shoutout on the show.

The Gaff #008: Captain America: Civil War

The Gaff Podcast | 3000px LQ10 Artwork

THIS WEEK:

In our Weekly Rewind Sams and Fergus tell us why they loved inspirational biopic Eddie the Eagle, Luke and Fergus share their thoughts on American Crime Story Season 1, Sams updates us on Last Man on Earth Season 2, and Luke starts a discussion on visual concept albums by way of Beyonce’s Lemonade.

TRAILERS OF THE WEEK:

We cover Taika Waititi’s new New Zealand classic Hunt for the Wilderpeople. It looks to be quite funny with a great little cast and gives us hope for levity in Thor: Ragnarok too. Coming off previous film What We Do in the Shadows, Sam expounds on parody comedies from Blazing Saddles to Airplane/Flying High and Shaun of the Dead, and the genius title for the Shadows sequel.

Cell reunites the 1408 combo of John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson and Stephen King. Does it look any good though? Well, Cusack is the second man Sams would turn for and while Luke sees it sitting on the shelf, Sams sees this one sitting on his shelf.

The Duel, a moody southern gothic Western, looks interesting if for no other reason than starring Woody Harrelson. He’s always a good reason to watch as he’s great no matter what he’s in.

Further trailers that we give brief lip service to include: Guardians, Big Fish and Begonia, Tulip Fever, Me Before You, Southside with You, Kubo and the Two Strings, Captain Fantastic, The Fits and Snowden.

We also revisit where our name came from, and decide we should do a commentary episode for The Phantom, and a debate episode for The Mighty Ducks.

TOPIC OF THE WEEK: CIVIL WAR

Does Civil War surpass Sams’ low expectations? Join Luke, Sams & return guest Fergus Halliday as they break down their favourite moments, characters and dialogue from the film, while also noting the issues they had with Avengers 2.5.

We cover those big-ass title cards for the locales, the (mis?)treatment of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, how relative newcomers Scarlet Witch and Vision are doing, the structural similarities to DC’s Batman v Superman, the secrets of the airport fight scene, and violence, villains and fatalities.

A big part of the discussion rests on the introduction of both Spider-Man and Black Panther to the MCU. Is Tom Holland a case of third time’s the charm for Spider-Man casting? Are we eager to head to Wakanda with Chadwick Boseman?

Other talking points include that freakily young Robert Downey Jr, the standalone quality (or lack thereof) in Phase III MCU films, the brilliant comedic timing and chemistry of Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Jim Rash’s cameo, characters flip-flopping with their stance on the Sokovia Accords, obvious product placement and the sudden total death of Peggy Carter on screens both big and small.

CREATIVE CONTRIBUTIONS:

If you’ve got mad Photoshop skills, mock up a movie poster or blu-ray cover for “Christmas Adventures with Tony Stark” and send it through. We’ll showcase it on our social media and give you a shoutout on the show.

The Gaff Podcast | 3000px LQ10 Artwork

We finally hit Episode 7 and so we talk about Episode VII. Star Wars is back in our lives. Plus, in the wake of his death, we devote some time to talk about Prince and more specifically, his first film; Purple Rain.

Weekly Rewind:

Sams saw Eye in the Sky this week, the last film starring the late Alan Rickman. Luke’s been catching up on quality TV; American Crime Story S1 and Better Call Saul S2. Both the boys saw Jungle Book this week… but only one saw the whole thing start to finish.

Trailer Trash:

  • The Founder
  • Independence Day: Resurgence

  • Magnificent Seven, Jason Bourne and Equals

The Gaff #006: New Release SVOD Horror (Hush & Holidays)

The Gaff Podcast

THIS WEEK ON THE GAFF:

Remember that week we had a couple horror trailers? Well two turned up on streaming and VOD! So we’re here to talk about Mike Flanagan’s home invasion thriller ‘Hush’ and the depraved annual holidays anthology ‘Holidays’. Watch the films and join us!

WEEKLY REWIND:

We both rewatched Star Wars in prep for next week’s episode. Luke watched the end of Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 and the start of Season 2, as well as rewatching Game of Thrones Season 5. Sams picked up the Spielberg blu-ray collection and saw Duel.

Which brings us to an impromptu discussion about well-presented boxsets. We talk about Kubrick, Hitchcock, availability issues and the Batman ’66 TV show blu-ray boxset. This is one we both own and Sams recounts the story of tracking down his copy. We talk about the design, the contents, the lack of an official home video release for so long, Adam West and his Walk of Fame star, and the importance of the 60’s Batman to the current iterations of Batman. You even get to hear us do a rendition of the theme song.

TRAILER TRASH:

Reshoots for added humour or added action? Regardless, there’s going to be a lighter side to SUICIDE SQUAD. An indigenous superhero in a diversely-cast, Australian-made genre TV show? CLEVERMAN looks amazing and we will be supporting it at The Gaff! Nicolas Winding-Refn’s latest, NEON DEMON, is a mess of neon, glitter, lasers and pulsing sound and we can’t wait to be awed by it.

TOPIC OF THE WEEK:

HUSH / HOLIDAYS

Because Luke wants to cover Star Wars in our ‘Episode 7’, and because we both streamed a couple of horror titles this week, we decided to dig into those. What we liked and what we didn’t. We covered the trailers a couple episodes ago; home invasion indie ‘Hush’ and anthology horror ’Holidays’.

In Hush, we talk about expectations from the trailer, the reality of the film, pacing and execution. It’s available on Netflix – in Australia no less. Is the trailer scarier than the movie? Is Maddie responsible for John’s death? Why didn’t she bandage her wound before putting her jeans back on?

Luke’s love for horror anthology runs deep but this is a first for Sams, and it’s Kevin Smith who brought him here. We cover our favourite segments, which may differ from the ‘best’ segment. The flow of an anthology film is important and we discuss the ups and downs of this one.

How does the acting fare? Which actor does Sams know? Does either film have good pacing and the right amount of scares and gore? Do they get the GAFF Seal of Approval? Join us AFTER watching both films!

The Gaff #005: The Walking Dead S6 Finale

The Gaff Podcast

THIS WEEK ON THE GAFF:

Deviating from our original topic at the loss of our guest, we decide to talk about the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead. TWD finally introduced us to Negan and Lucille, and Sams decided that was a worthwhile reason to check back in on the show.

WEEKLY REWIND:

Luke watched American History X and Requiem for a Dream in prep for this week’s original topic. Sams watched Gerard Butler action movie, London Has Fallen. We also talk briefly about Ender’s Game.

TRAILER TRASH:

Following the cast pic reveal, we finally get a proper glimpse at the first ‘A Star Wars Story’ film; STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE. We talk about the teaser for the teaser on GMA, discover Luke absolutely cannot pronounce ‘Bothans’, and revel in the voiceover from one Forest Whitaker.

Mel Gibson’s latest has him on the hunt for his daughter, in BLOOD FATHER. A grizzled Gibson makes us wonder about the Mad Max 4 that might have been. One would hope NOT Son of Max.

It’s no secret that we’re both Batman fans, so we were excited to see the first footage of animated adaptation, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE. The latest in DC’s animated offerings, it looks faithful but will it hold its own against the Dark Knight Returns adaptation?

Sams expresses his love for Paul Dano and we marvel at the sheer absurdity of SWISS ARMY MAN. Daniel Radcliffe plays a talking, karate-chopping, farting corpse that becomes Paul Dano’s best friend.

TOPIC OF THE WEEK:

THE WALKING DEAD S6 FINALE

‘Previously on AMC’s The Walking Dead’… well, Sams wouldn’t know cause he hasn’t been watching! He dropped out after Season 4. Luke talks about waning interest during Season 5.

We cover a lot of ground here. Sams liked Season 1 so much it spurred him to read the first 90-odd issues of the comics. Even getting an issue signed by inker Tony Moore. But, he also explains his abandoning the show, and it mostly boils down to the handling of a particular Governor and a certain anti-climactic war waged against said Governor.

However, he decided to jump into the S6 finale for the introduction of his favourite villain, Negan. Sams went in with low expectations and gives his opinion on the episode itself, compares The Governor and Negan, and talks about Negan as a charismatic villain, his casting in Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and who he would’ve cast as The Governor. There’s also some discussion of the difference between Laurie’s death and Rick’s grieving her as seen in the show versus the comics.

More generally we talk about; the appearance of Trevor from GTA V, the hopelessness of the situation for our main characters, the problem of child actors growing up, the importance of writing and signage in the show’s visuals, foreshadowing character demises, RVs on AMC, and the Lucille victim in the comics and who it might be in the show.

Is there a difference in the AMC audiences for The Walking Dead versus Breaking Bad? How faithful was the finale to the comic book source material? Can we forgive the show for leaving us with THAT cliffhanger ending? Will Sams watch Season 7? The answers await your ears in this episode.

We consider the future of the show and the introduction of super-communities, the potential fallout from this finale’s cliffhanger, and briefly mention other upcoming comic book adaptations Preacher (also for AMC) and The Boys.

The Gaff #004: Future of the Cinema-going Experience

The Gaff Podcast | 3000px LQ10 Artwork

THIS WEEK ON THE GAFF:

Sams & Luke debate the future of the cinema-going experience as they discuss new release, on-demand platform ‘The Screening Room’, other subscription services, high frame rate (HFR), 3D and even virtual reality.

WEEKLY REWIND / TRAILER REEL:

Luke recounts seeing Brian Wilson at the Sydney Opera House. Sam encourages him to check out the biopic Love & Mercy. We take a couple of short detours into covering our opinion on 10 Cloverfield Lane’s originally intended ending and Sams rants about Bait 3D.

The boys talk about the upcoming Stan Original series ‘Wolf Creek’ and its first full trailer. We also talk about silent home invasion indie horror ‘Hush’, ‘Everybody Wants Some’ Richard Linklater’s spiritual successor to Dazed and Confused, and ‘Search Party’ the latest comedy from Hangover director Todd Phillips.

OUR FOCUS OF THE WEEK:

THE SCREENING ROOM:

Sean Parker’s The Screening Room promises day-and-date on-demand viewing of new release films at home for US$50 for a 48-hour rental window, on a US$150 set-top box.

We cover a lot of ground here; studios and filmmakers who support/oppose the idea, the cost vs value of the whole proposition, Sams’ belief in the cinema as a cathedral, fancy options when it comes to venue or premium tickets, standard Australian ticket pricing, the forming of UNISPHE as a home entertainment distributor, large format screens such as IMAX, the atmosphere and collective reaction of an audience, special event screenings with Q&As and special guests, streaming bandwidth and quality issues, notion of movies as disposable entertainment and the rise of high production value cable TV shows.

As we move on to talk about the evolution of cinema, we focus on the current iteration of 3D and whether it enhances the experience. We weigh up the differences between shot in 3D vs post-conversion and staged depth vs gimmick pop-up effects. Luke even tries on active, home use 3D glasses on-air for your amusement as we talk about good and bad examples of the format.

Beyond 3D, we talk about high-frame rate (HFR) and if it enhances or detracts from the viewing experience. In the case of fantasy against reality, do we need HFR? How does it combine with 3D.

Finally we touch on VOD options, piracy, subscription services, convenience, escapism, the importance of a screening space, film vs digital and audience participation.

FAST FORWARD:

On the next episode of The Gaff we had intended to talk about extreme films such as Requiem for a Dream, American History X and Trainspotting. Instead you’ll find we settle on the Walking Dead S6 finale. Make sure you watch before listening in next ep!
