Long Hiatus Underway

Long Hiatus Underway

2021-01-2901:00

Due to a personal emergency, the Cinematic Doctrine podcast will be taking a long hiatus. We intend to come back with new content at a later date, but because of our circumstances, things will have to be put on hold for an undefined length of time. We apologize for this, and will be pausing all Patreon billing cycles until further notice. In other words, Patreon Supporters will not be charged, and we encourage fans not to join the Patreon at this time. Unfortunately, this also means that January’s Patreon Selected episode will also be canceled. We are deeply sorry about this inconvenience. If the hiatus continues longer than we anticipate, we will consider unlaunching the Creator Page to eliminate confusion. All future updates will be present on the Cinematic Doctrine website, as well as our active Twitter, so try not to forget about us! Thank you so much for your past support, and we pray you are all doing well and staying safe. Twitter: https://twitter.com/@cinedoctrineSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
TV SHOW DISCUSSION: In a year without movies, film fans had television. In a year with television, everyone anticipated the release of The Mandalorian Season Two. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t one of my most anticipated projects of the 2020, and I think it’s safe to say it didn’t disappoint. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We have a lot to get into with this episode, and right off the bat Derrick Whitmore from ShatterCast gets into one of his famous positive-and-negative lists, while John Weiand, Daniel, and I jump off his list with our own comments. We also celebrate The Mandalorian’s series format for the breathing room it provides the expansive Star Wars universe, as opposed to the limited runtime of a 2-hour film. Then, spoilers run free as we get into the nitty-gritty of The Mandalorian, discuss Episode 2’s wild Baby Yoda antics, geek out over Episode 5’s star cameo, and talk at length about Episode 7’s great introduction of much-needed nuance to the Star Wars universe. And yes, of course we talk about the end of the series, and share our speculation on what Season Three will bring.

MONTHLY MOVIE NEWS: In this episode, Melvin, Daniel, and Carter talk about the huge Warner Bros. news that their entire movie release schedule for 2021 would launch not only in theaters but also on HBOMax the same day. That’s wild news that shakes the movie industry to its core, so they speculate on how this decision came to fruition, what it means for the future of theaters, and if the general movie watcher will jump at the opportunity to visit the theater once vaccines are widely distributed and COVID is a thing of the past. Also, they spend, like, 10 minutes talking about the SAW Franchise. Woops. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
TRAILER TALK: Carter and Melvin chat several upcoming Disney properties: Ms Marvel, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and What If…?. Also, they chat about two Star Wars shows: Star Wars: The Bad Batch and Andor. Also, Melvin kept calling the show Andor, “Cassian”. So, if you hear him talking about a show called "Cassian", that one doesn’t exist. Andor exists. Or, at least, in 2022 it does. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
PATREON MOVIE DISCUSSION: This movie was selected by our Patreon Supporters over at the Cinematic Doctrine Patreon. Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard! Advertised as Pixar’s return to a release schedule of original properties, lots of people had high hopes for Onward. Then, Coronavirus ruined everything, as we’ve known it to do, and theaters shut down roughly two weeks after it’s theater debut. Soon, Disney saved the day by making it available to the masses soon after, and the world got a taste of Pixar’s latest flick. That is, until Soul releases like a day from this episode’s release. After we give you all the technical details regarding Onward, Daniel kicks us off with his comprehensive thoughts on the film, and how Pixar simply has a knack for producing genuine, heartfelt, and engaging stories no matter the setting. Not only that, the two of us meditate on the idea that, at its core, Onward is pretty melancholy for a kid’s film, and how another animated feature from 2020, The Willoughbys, also has a melancholy yet hopeful premise for a PG flick. Then, we engage what is probably Cinematic Doctrine’s longest trivia section as we list off every lil’ hidden detail we could find in Onward. From the creative fantasy puns Pixar employs, to the myriad of references to other Pixar properties, we’ve got you covered. And don’t worry, we also have some behind-the-scenes trivia regarding the development of Onward, so stick around for that, too. And lastly, I ask Daniel what it is about the ending to Onward that spoke to him so deeply, and the two of us dig into its themes of wrestling with loss and overcoming hardship through brotherly love. I also ask Daniel what he thinks about the use of magic as a plot device considering the apprehension most Christians may have toward the modern usage and portrayal of magic in fiction. Onward is Rated PG for action/peril and some mild thematic elements. It features Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Octavia Spencer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Mel Rodriguez. Directed by Dan Scanlon. Onward is currently available on Disney Plus. Sleigh Bell noise by GrowlerMusic Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)

MOVIE DISCUSSION: I love Chris Staron and I love Truce Podcast, so of course I had him back on the show this Christmas season to talk about one of his favorite Christmas flicks (and that's after chatting one of his favorite musicals!). When he suggested we chat Ernest Saves Christmas, I jumped at the opportunity to revisit Jim Varney’s classic character. I don’t typically throw this term around much, but rewatching Ernest Saves Christmas was very wholesome, and reminded me of the comfort one can have watching holiday films. As we get started, Chris and I dive deep into our general thoughts on Ernest as a character, slapstick as a bygone comedy format, and how nostalgia glasses are virtually required when rewatching films we liked as a child. Then, our trivia section borderline advocates string-theory as we ponder the consistent themes, tropes, and overlapping characteristics of many Christmas films featuring Santa Claus, and how there may be a secret Santa cinematic universe. Chris also shares some amazing history on how Jim Varney and John R Cherry III built "Ernest P. Worrell" into a dominating advertising icon and popular Disney character. And lastly, we have a candid discussion on how comedy and slapstick can often be at the expense of others, and how sometimes Christians are uncomfortable with that. So, we head to scripture for some literary parallels between the book of Esther and the book of 1st Samuel, and how one can be read with comedic intentions, and the other would be inappropriate to read for kicks. Ernest Saves Christmas is Rated PG. Here's a custom certificate: thematic elements and mild humor. It features Jim Varney, Douglas Seale, Noelle Parker, Gailard Sartain, Bill Byrge, and Oliver Clark. Directed by John R. Cherry III. Ernest Saves Christmas is available on VUDU. Sleigh Bell noise by GrowlerMusic Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Truce Podcast: https://trucepodcast.com/Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE DISCUSSION: October saw the release of this wild martial arts trailer about Nicolas Cage training warriors to fight aliens. That alone set Twitter aflame, and even Cinematic Doctrine’s website saw increased traffic from our write-up on the site. Jiu Jitsu looked crazy fun. People punching and kicking to stop an alien warrior invader? Sign us up!And then… we watched it. And boy, Daniel and I sure have some thoughts! We’re no stranger to camp, let-alone Nicolas Cage camp, but Jiu Jitsu’s overly serious and convoluted plotline leaves a lot to be desired. From the get-go, before we even get the chance to give you logistics, Daniel and I air out some grievances about the film with tangible confusion. Then, not soon after, we jump right into decrypting the bizarre choices behind the filmmaking. From first-person martial arts to a camera acting like a fidget-spinner, there’s a lot going on in Jiu Jitsu that was not expected.Afterward, stick around for some fun trivia regarding Nicolas Cage’s martial arts training, Dimitri Logothetis’ run-in with Martin Scorsese, and how Jiu Jitsu was based on a comic book… sort of.Jiu Jitsu is Rated R for violence throughout. It features Nicolas Cage, Alain Moussi, Frank Grillo, Tony Jaa, JuJu Chan, Marie Avgeropoulos, and Rick Yune. Directed by Dimitri Logothetis. Jiu Jitsu is currently available on VUDU. Sleigh Bell noise by GrowlerMusicPatreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
PATREON MOVIE DISCUSSION: This movie was selected by our Patreon Supporters over at the Cinematic Doctrine Patreon. Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard! First things first: thanks so much for your patience with this Patreon voted episode! It’s been a while since we’ve had a perfectly normal chance to produce a perfectly normal episode, and I can tell you from our side of things that this is a huge blessing. So, we hope this episode is as enjoyable for you as it was for us! Second, my wife does not like Santa. And, maybe by the end of this episode you’ll feel I've hyperbolized her distaste, because she does enjoy a Santa movie or two, but she has good reason to not like Santa. Stick around to hear all about that. Also, hear why she likes this movie despite the things she doesn’t like about Santa! Oh, and hear my thoughts, too, because this movie is wild if you really spend any amount of time thinking about it. Third, hang out for our trivia section and hear about a few lil' Easter eggs hidden in this holiday flick, as well as a lot of fun background on Tim Allen’s immense popularity back in the 90s. And lastly, Kathryn and I double-down on this Santa talk as we navigate why Christians aren’t comfortable with Santa. Then, we talk about why Christians may still find him fascinating as a modern mythical and fictional character. The Santa Clause is Rated PG for a few crude moments. It features Tim Allen, Judge Reinhold, Wendy Crewson, Eric Lloyd, and David Kruholtz. Directed by John Pasquin. The Santa Clause is currently available on Disney Plus. Sleigh Bell noise by GrowlerMusicPatreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
REBROADCAST TV-SHOW REVIEW: Enjoy this rebroadcast of an early 2020 episode on The Mandalorian Season One and how some of its criticism for being 'slow' sparked an interesting thought process on how good things are worth waiting for.The Mandalorian is Rated TV-PG. It has no detailed certificate, so here's a Melvin certificate: Sci-fi action through-out, and brief mild language. It features Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, and Giancarlo Esposito. Created by Jon Favreau. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE DISCUSSION: If I’m being honest, I’ve always found it strange that Sherlock Holmes is as popular as he is. Like, as a property. I guess I understand the lasting appeal. Mysteries are always a good time if you don’t have them spoiled. Maybe it’s just that I don’t remember enjoying the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes’ movies, or that my interest in the BBC Sherlock waned drastically as the series continued. Also, and I even mention this in the episode, I don’t like snarky lead characters. I’m not selling this episode well, I’m sorry! That’s not my job! I’m supposed to make sure you’re excited to tune into our thoughts on Enola Holmes, so let me do that now! As we get under way, Carter and I share some divisive opinions on Enola Holmes as I found this film largely inoffensive and kind of fun, even if I wanted more, while Carter not only disliked the film, but shares a particular insight that, for him, was a real deal breaker. This leads to an interesting, albeit challenging discussion as the two of us unfold his stance and detail some biblical approaches to Enola Holmes. And that’s all without film spoilers! Then, stay tuned for some fun facts during our trivia section regarding the production of Enola Holmes and how some people aren’t happy with the film. Lastly, Carter and continue our discussion had in the general non-spoiler discussion with further details. You know, now that we can chat spoilers. Enola Holmes is Rated PG-13 for some violence. It features Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, Helena Bonham Carter, and Louis Partridge. Directed by Harry Bradbeer. Enola Holmes is available on Netflix.Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MONTHLY MOVIE NEWS: To kick things off, Carter and I discuss the continued strain that is 2020 on movie theaters, and how AMC is looking to make some major changes regarding it’s stocks and, what I predict, will be its assets due to the direction things are headed. Carter also shares insight on how stocks function, because I only know so much about them, and how people like me should view them. Then we discuss Disney’s change from releasing Pixar’s upcoming film Soul from theaters to Disney Plus. As the film will be releasing directly to streaming via Disney Plus, and be included in your Disney Plus subscription as opposed to Mulan’s $30 price-tag, we discuss the massive changes in terms of film-distribution, a topic closely related to the changing theater scene. And yes, we also discuss the controversy surrounding Mulan, and how it may have affected Disney’s pursuit of a PVOD model. Also, we continue our speculation on whether a precedent has been set regarding typical streaming distribution practices, such as the difference between Premium Video on Demand (or, purchasing a film to watch for a lot of money) and simply dropping a film on Netflix or Prime. All in all, this episode fascinates me. I love industry talk sometimes even more than I love movies. It may sound a bit Greek at times but I feel we handle the minutia of this discussion well enough that anyone can listen and learn some new things about the film industry, theater industry, and the streaming giants of Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney Plus. We even talk about generational differences and how our generation, millennials, consumes media in a totally different way to those younger than us, Zoomers, who consume a ton of free media via apps like YouTube and TikTok, and how that alone makes a lot of these industry changes all the more complex and exciting. Lastly, Carter and I decide on whether Wonder Woman 1984 will either stick to its December 25th release date, be moved into 2021, or if Warner Bros. has another trick up its sleeve… Hopefully by the time this is posted (and you’re listening), Warner Bros. hasn’t made a decision yet. Either way, it’s fun hearing how we rationalize what we think may happen. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
TRAILER TALK: To kick things off, Carter and I talk about Monster Hunter, and how this is not the first Capcom licensed property to hit the big screen from director Paul W.S. Anderson, nor starring Milla Jovovich. And, frankly, we don’t think it will be the last. Even so, we have a good time chatting about our… reserved thoughts on Monster Hunter, whether we even like big-monster movies to begin with, and if fans of the video game will be satisfied with what this movie has to offer. Then we talk about David Fincher’s upcoming Netflix feature, Mank. Carter grounds us on what to expect with Fincher’s latest picture, and carries us into 1930’s Hollywood and the creation of what many consider cinema’s greatest achievement, Citizen Kane. This sparks a really interesting discussion regarding Netflix’s annual bid for the Oscars, how their pursuit of big-name directors is a sign of a changing corporate culture at Netflix, and how both of us pretty much agree that Mank will probably turn out great. And finally, we chat Jiu Jitsu, an upcoming less-than B-grade martial arts pic featuring Nicolas Cage. I asked Daniel to introduce us to Jiu Jitsu with a brief call-in so look forward to hearing everyone’s favorite WWE fan and his infectious excitement. Then, Carter and I take the mantle as we the joy of candy-style movies where just from the trailer you know what you’re gonna get, and if things pay off well, Jiu Jitsu is going to be a great time. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
PATREON MOVIE REVIEW (SORT OF): Tune in to this unconventional episode for clarification, transparency, and an apology I owe our Patreon Supporters - and you, the listener - for not properly vetting 'Last Shift',  the movie that won the Patreon-Poll for October. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
TV SHOW DISCUSSION: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic there are a lot of films and tv-shows that aren’t producing right now. Not only that, just before the shutdown, a looming writer’s strike was coming in Hollywood, which meant scripted television was going to have a slump. With this in mind, most production companies embrace reality-television as a means for cheap, unscripted, and quickly produced content. This is why you can have some wild shows like The Masked Singer or I Can See Your Voice, two absurdly bonkers singing competition shows, on television during the largest economic crises in ages. It’s cheap, easy, and quick to produce. Alongside this, American TV channels may license foreign gameshows and reality shows to fill timeslots in their schedule, and this Summer a British gameshow called Killer Camp made the rounds on the CW. Killer Camp’s premise is absolutely wild, and Kathryn and I talk about the excitement present in this reality gameshow’s gimmick, it’s easily compelling and engaging mechanics, and also how the Killer Camp game was ripe with strife and division. This sparks a conversation about watching ‘entertainment television’ that contains real-life events and conversations that hurt people. Then, we discuss various trivia regarding the difficulty of producing Killer Camp on such a tight schedule, and how the killing-scenes of each murdered contestant was executed (pun intended). And, lastly, when we dive into spoilers, we share our surprise at certain revelations within the show, and how I’ve used a tactic we see in Killer Camp during a game of Mafia back in my Youth Group days. Killer Camp is Unrated. Here's a custom TV-14 certificate: Graphic violence, language, and suggestive content. Presented by Bobby Mair. Directed by Mike Parker. Killer Camp is currently available on CWTV. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE DISCUSSION: Are you enjoying your October? I know I am! It’s been nice watching the leaves change their color, have a chilly breeze flow through the open windows, and eat copious amounts of candy when nobody’s looking. I’ve eaten… just… so many Crunch bars. Last week we had a great time talking with Logan Sharp of The Reformed Gamers about the South Korean zombie film, Train to Busan. This week, we’re comin’ back state-side for Sinister, another fun, accessible, and tame horror flick that we feel fits the spooky-Halloween spirit just right! As we get things started, Carter and I talk about Sinister’s clever pacing and parallels, how we often view our history and hopes with rose-colored glasses, and the dangers of chasing nostalgia rather than focusing on our responsibilities. Following that, we discuss some fun trivia about the conception of Sinister and give a bit of love to film over digital in the movie-making field. We also lament the transition to digital, even if it is cost effective. And lastly, during our spoiler discussion, Carter talks about how easy our temptations can manipulate us, and I posit another message within Sinister’s subtext, while also scratching my head about the resolution of the film. Sinister is Rated R for disturbing violent images and some terror. It features Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance, Vincent D'Onofrio, James Ransone, Fred Dalton Thompson, and Clare Foley. Directed by Scott Derrickson. Sinister is currently available on Peacock. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE DISCUSSION: Logan from The Reformed Gamers has previously joined us here at Cinematic Doctrine to talk about everybody’s favorite video game movie, Super Mario Bros., which was an amazing experience if I do say-so myself! And while we had an absolute grand time recollecting the bizarre experience of watching such an absolute train-wreck of a film, Logan and I are excited to talk about another film that’s a different kind of train-wreck. You know, the kind that isn’t bad, because there’s literal trains and wreckage in it (see what I did there? Puns!!). So, what is Train to Busan? It’s a South Korean zombie flick that has landed itself squarely in Logan’s favorite horror films to date, and with the way he speaks about the movie, and the insight he shares, you’d be hard-pressed to think it was anything other than an absolute favorite movie of his in general. With that in mind, our initial non-spoiler discussion is filled with some truly great nuggets of value as we think about the zombie genre’s ability to recontextualize disaster, and how sometimes we ignore disaster unless it’s brought to our doorstep. Then, when we dive into our non-spoiler trivia section, we share the extreme level of popularity and success Train to Busan saw not only in its home continent, but also here in the states as it’s exposure grew over the course of a few years. And lastly, as we dive headfirst into our spoiler section, Logan and I talk about Matthew 6 and how people bear fruit based upon where they lay their treasures. Are their treasures collected and cherished on Earth, or are they looking beyond the horizon of mortality on the promise of God’s goodness and the New Earth? For the treasures we set our eyes upon, those treasures we worship. You’d be surprised how great Train to Busan expresses this reality through two pivotal characters. Train to Busan is Rated TV-MA. There is no certificate, so here's a custom certificate: Strong bloody violence and intense sequences throughout, disturbing images, and language. It features Gong Yoo, Ma Dong-seok, Jung Yu-mi, Choi Woo-shik, Ahn So-hee, Kim Soo-an, Kim Eui-sung, and choi Gwi-hwa. Directed by Yeon Sang-ho. Train to Busan is currently available on Amazon Prime. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc The Reformed Gamers Website: https://thereformedgamers.com/ Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
TRAILER TALK: First off, Carter and I dig into WandaVision, the first new property to release in the much-loved Marvel Cinematic Universe! Carter and I dig into the mystery surrounding this strange trailer that seems to only give us just enough without giving us too much, but what we get is awesome. A weird, pseudo retro sitcom with superheroes trying to fit in, paired alongside some typical Sci-Fi fighting action? Sounds great! Then, we take a look at Warner Bros. next big blockbuster, Dune! First things first, we see whether or not Carter or I have actually read the classic sci-fi novel of the same name, and then fangirl over virtually everything about this trailer from the somber and petrifying themes, unbelievable cast, and Director Denis Villeneuve. We also get into a great conversation regarding content awareness, and supporting content creators who, in the past, have done some questionable or sinful things. (UPDATE: As of recording this episode, the release date has changed for Dune from December 2020 to October 2021)Then, lastly, we go wild talking about the upcoming Star Wars property that everyone loves, The Mandalorian, and we go right into our excitement for Season two, speculate on what we see in the trailer and put forth our hopes for what we’ll see in this upcoming season. Then, we decide on which of these projects we’re most excited for, so stick around to the end to hear where we land! Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE DISCUSSION: There’s this running gag in film communities about how if you join a film course in college and the teacher asks everyone their favorite director, 9 out of 10 students will answer Nolan or Tarantino. It’s a little cynical, since mostly the joke is aimed at people who cinephiles would say “like movies” but don’t really “watch movies”. In other words, they check out tentpole films and blockbusters but they’re not really digging into the community that much. That’s all well and good, and honestly both Nolan and Tarantino have some great movies, so it’s not a bad thing! But that’s just two of many great directors out there, so I always find it a bit comical. Granted, one of my favorite movies of 2019 was Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, so I guess I’m falling into the trap, too! Jokes aside, we’re just glad to be talking about another Nolan flick. He has a unique and easily recognizable style, and Carter and I dig right into that from the start. Through-out our spoiler free discussion, you can hear us talk about his tactical-spy-thriller with a sci-fi twist, it’s absurd level of complexities, and how the film's generally great qualities are undermined by one detrimental issue. Then, join us for some spoiler-free trivia that details various aspects of production, from a funny story with Robert Pattinson talking to Christopher Nolan about his role, as well as the very Nolan-esque way actors were permitted to read the script for Tenet. Then, in our last section, Carter and I talk about various spoilers within the movie, try to make sense of its extremely complex plot, and discuss a contentious topic among Christians: the doctrine of Predestination. Tenet is Rated PG-13 for violence and intense action. It features John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, and Kenneth Branagh. Directed by Christopher Nolan. Tenet is currently in theaters. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE DISCUSSION: Hey guys, just wanted to let you know this episode delves into a very difficult topic, including content that might otherwise be uncomfortable, offensive, and triggering to those listening. As such, I have marked this episode explicit in the shownotes. In this episode, Daniel and I take some time setting the groundwork for this tonally challenging film, giving you some details on the content within. It may seem a bit abrasive, but we promise we wouldn’t be covering the movie if it weren’t tame. Then, Daniel and I get into our immediate, non-spoilery thoughts regarding the films expression of anxiety, and how different characters exhibit different responses to anxiety. Following this, we chat about a small cameo that horror fans will enjoy when watching She Dies Tomorrow. Afterward, we dig into spoilers and talk about the more nuanced themes and projections of anxiety and how certain characters resolve their struggles, and how Daniel and I as Christians believe it’s important to recognize and sympathize with those who have anxiety, as well as approaching it with the confidence that, in Christ, there are eternal and practical solutions to battling anxiety. She Dies Tomorrow is Rated R for language, some sexual references, drug use and bloody images. It features Kate Lyn Sheil, Jane Adams, Katie Aselton, Chris Messina, Kentucker Audley, Tunde Adebimpe, and Jennifer Kim. Directed by Amy Seimetz. She Dies Tomorrow is available to rent or buy on VUDU. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Twitter: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/CineDoctrineInsta Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
