TGB Episode 7: Episode Not Yet Rated (Guest: William Goss)

April 20, 2010

The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by William Goss from Cinematical and to talk about their Picks of the Week, the newest DVD/Blu-Ray releases of the week, a couple of new trailers for James Mangold's Knight and Day and Aaron Schneider's Get Low, and also about how they don't particularly care for American Beauty. The main topic of the episode was a discussion of the ratings of films and how the MPAA often takes things too much into their own hands, plus how director's dumb down their flicks (in honor of The Losers, in theaters this Friday). Listen to the latest episode below!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30PM (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!

The rate me movie. How could you forget Tray talking about Team America? About how they put in all the sick sex to get regular sex scenes though. Thats an awesome idea. 🙂

Personally I don't feel that Kick Ass lived up to the trailers. Very fun yes, but to me, the movie felt like it was knowingly trying to outdo the action Millar created for the other property Wanted. Also it seems like Vaughn couldn't figure out if the narrative style wanted to be an homage to Raimi's Spider-Man or a spoof. Guess I should read the comic to find that out:P I fully agree with you all that it had a tough time trying to successfully meld the Big Daddy/Hit Girl and Kick Ass storylines. And Nic Cage certainly surprised the hell out of me by channeling Adam West. Well said! Lastly, if I had to see one terrible action comedy this year, I would take Knight and Day over the Kutcher/Heigel film Killers. Looks pretty formulaic, but Cruise has the charisma to at least make it tolerable. Great show guys! Catch you next week!
