    Child of Man : Carl Reiner's Stand By Me

    Child of Man : Carl Reiner's Stand By Me

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas go searching for dead bodies.
    In our 3rd Week of the Nepotism aka Children of Men arc, we discuss the iconic coming-of-age tale STAND BY ME, directed by Rob Reiner, son of Carl Reiner.
    This 1986 film adapted from Stephen King's novella "The Body", starring Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell, and the late-great River Phoenix (plus Kiefer Sutherland and John Cusack), is a master class in storytelling. A cool 85 minutes of adventure, thrills, heart-felt moments, insanely good acting from child stars, and yo mama jokes – what more could you ask for?
    How does Rob Reiner stand up against his father, Carl Reiner? Who cares, right? Tune in to listen to us discuss anyway... But, what is Goofy?!?

    Child of Man : Jason Reitman's Juno

    Child of Man : Jason Reitman's Juno

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas talk about the increase in teenage pregnancy rates following 2007's JUNO.
    In Week 2 of Children of Men aka Children of Famous Men aka Nepotism, we discuss the coming-of-age tale directed by Jason Reitman – son of Ivan Reitman. Starring Elliot Page, Michael Cera, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Alison Janney and J.K. Simmons, the film was built off the back of the success found by the quirky indie comedy Napoleon Dynamite; grounded with very real plot points and taking the genre to new heights. The Academy Awards, to be exact.
    It made a star out of Elliot Page, pushed Michael Cera even further into stardom, gave screenwriter Diablo Cody a career, and really broke ground with its themes of teenage pregnancy and the debate on abortion vs adoption. Plus, it touched on some pretty twisted gaslighting and grooming story arcs that are only now coming to terms with as a society.
    15 Years Later, how does Jason Reitman's second feature hold up, and where does it have him standing up to his father's hit comedy directing career*? Tune in to find out...
    * Does it really even matter, though?

    Child of Man : Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation

    Child of Man : Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas get lost in Tokyo and feel sad about being alone.
    It's time for a new arc – Children of Men aka Children of Famous Men aka Nepotism. Over the next four weeks, we will follow four different directors, who are the children of famous directors – picking out one film from each of their catalogues, to see how they stand against their parents' massive shadows. Do they sink or swim?
    First up, it's Sofia Coppola – daughter of the legendary Francis Ford Coppola, and we've gone with her 2003 drama LOST IN TRANSLATION, starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. How does this indie darling fare nearly 20 years later? Does Sofia Coppola blaze her own trail, or is she lost in the shadows of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now? Or is the whole premise of this stupid arc lost in translation? Tune in to find out...

    Star Wars: The Scruffy-looking Nerf Herders versus The Phantom Menace

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas, in honour of MAY THE FOURTH, finally voyage to the galaxy far, far away to embark on a new journey with George Lucas's Prequel Trilogy...
    It's STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE and we're talking how George Lucas found his way back to the franchise with this fourth, but actually first, instalment.

Plus, there will be fond memories, love for John Williams and lots more complaining about Jar Jar and Anakin Skywalker, as the two Scruffy-looking Nerf Herders try to use the force once again.
    Is Jar Jar really that bad? Tune in to find out, and May the 4th Be With You!

    Orange Harvard

    Orange Harvard

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas try to get into College at two of the most prestigious Universities in America. To prepare, they put off studying for their SATs and cram by watching the 2002 films ORANGE COUNTY and STEALING HARVARD.
    ORANGE COUNTY follows Colin Hanks (Tom Hanks's son) as Shawn, who has great grades and high ambitions to go to Stanford and become a writer. When his College advisor sends in the wrong test transcript to Stanford, Shawn doesn't get in, and decides to hit the road with his stoner brother (Jack Black) and girlfriend to convince the Dean of Admissions to let him in.
    It is a totally solid flick, with a great cast (his parents are Catherine O'Hara and John Lithgow), great screenplay, and fun soundtrack. We pair it with the similar themed film from the same year, STEALING HARVARD. Starring Jason Lee as John, who promises to pay for the tuition of his niece, he is surprised to learn she gets into Harvard. Keeping to his promise, while also trying to buy a house with his girlfriend Elaine (Leslie Mann - she's in Orange County too, btw), John teams up with his friend Duff (Tom Green) in an attempt to steal money to pay his niece's tuition.
    Which will Jon and Fil find to be a better "trying to get into college" film? Tune in to find out...
