TGB Episode 91: Films Regarding Films (Guest: FSR's Rob Hunter)

January 5, 2012

The Golden Briefcase - Scorsese's Hugo

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by Rob Hunter from Film School Rejects to go over their Picks of the Week, the newest DVD & Blu-Ray releases, chat about the new trailers for Ridley Scott's Prometheus and Will Farrell's Casa de mi Padre and more. The topic of the night was a discussion on films that deal with and portray filmmaking (in honor of both Hugo and The Artist playing now). The guys talk over various films that showcase all the aspects of filmmaking from directors, actors and writers. They also talk about the films' impact and if they hurt or help the actual industry today.

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!

I hope I am not the only one who thought of Peter Jackson's video blog for the THE HOBBIT. His behind the scenes look at a film we all are anticipating is a real marvel to behold. Peeling back the curtain to reveal the wizardry of the process of getting a big budget movie made has been fascinating as well as INFORMATIVE!

I just realized these kind of movies are some of my favorites! And you mentioned them almost all..! Thank you Jeremy for remembering 'Somewhere' ๐Ÿ™‚ I might wanna add: 2LDK (2003), Cannibal Holocaust (1980), CQ (2001), Drive (2011) and Inglourious Basterds (2009). Too bad I couldn't listen live otherwise I would have thrown those in ๐Ÿ˜€

As your New Year Year's resolutions, Jeremy and Tim you guys should actually go to the theater. ย  It seems like you guys never see the new releases.ย

More like Tim needs needs to get to the cinema more. Jeremy actually is the primary movie critic for the Site.

Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably wonโ€™t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!
