    Episode 97 - Deepstar Six

    In this episode of the show we are diving into the depths of underwater cinema as we are launching a miniseries on thrillers set against the backdrop of oceanic expanses. And we are starting off with Deepstar Six. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the film's obvious connection to Alien and Aliens, how its lived-in sets aid in audience immersion, the importance of designing a memorable creature, Miguel Ferrer as the MVP of the film and much more!

    David Lynch Marathon 12 - Inland Empire (teaser)

    David Lynch Marathon 12 - Inland Empire (teaser)

    Here's a short teaser of the twelfth episode of our Patreon-exclusive show Uncut Gems Marathons where each year we will pick one director and, one by one, discuss their entire filmography. For 2022 we have chosen to dive deep into the cinema of David Lynch. In this episode of our 2022 David Lynch Marathon we are diving head first down the rabbit hole of David Lynch's nightmarish thoughtscape as we talk about Inland Empire. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about Lynch's newfound fascination with digital filmmaking, taking complete control over his process, shooting in Poland, whether the movie is an epilogue to his career and whether it is perhaps too impenetrable and personal to be interrogated by an unprepared viewer.

    Episode 96 - Toy Soldiers

    Episode 96 - Toy Soldiers

    In this episode of the show we are joined once again by our good buddy Jackson Boren to talk about Toy Soldiers!!! Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about why we think this movie has disappeared from the popular consciousness despite being engineered to resonate with young adults, the short-lived directorial career of Daniel Petrie Jr., the romantic allure of the 80s and 90s villains, practical effects, squibs and military hardware, Sean Astin's Samwise Gamgee energy, the importance of having a switched-on henchman and much more!

    BONUS Tie-in 13 - Dead Poets Society (teaser)

    Here's a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. In this episode of our Bonus Tie-in series we are talking about Dead Poets Society in connection to our upcoming show on Toy Soldiers. Join us as together with a very special guest we decode the poetry between the lines of this movie, marvel at Robin Williams' singular acting chops, attempt to re-evaluate Mr Perry's parenting skills, wonder if it isn't too dangerous to open teenage minds too much and whether this 30-year-old movie can speak to younger audiences today.

    Episode 95 - Man of Tai Chi

    Episode 95 - Man of Tai Chi

    In this episode of the show we are continuing our double bill of actors-turned-directors doing a martial arts film with Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi. Joined by our good buddy Jak we wonder what pushed Keanu Reeves to step behind the camera and why he never returned to do another movie. You will also hear us talk about the influences behind the movie, the Wachowski factor, whether the movie is too complex for its own good or if it is perfect the way it is, if it functions as a martial arts Truman Show, and most importantly we ask if Keanu Reeves' direction makes martial artists look cool.
