TGB Episode 155: Baz Luhrmann's Spectacle (Guest: Matt Patches)

May 9, 2013

TGB - Baz Luhrmann

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest Matt Patches of and the Operation Kino podcast to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest in DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for Gavin Hood's Ender's Game and Wright/Pegg/Frost's The World's End and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on the work of Australian director Baz Luhrmann, in honor of his rendition of The Great Gatsby hitting theaters this weekend. The guys go over what they feel to be Baz's high and low points and where they want to see him go after Gatsby. Enjoy!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records.
