Cinema Misfits Podcast, Episode 26: The Warrior’s Way, Narnia 3, The Black Swan, and The Tourist

6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.″

The Warrior’s Way.  It’s a film that’s all green screen and special effects.  The only thing that hasn’t been digitally added is a decent screenplay.″

Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  Is the third time a charm?″

The Black Swan.  If you look closely during the scene where the portraits taunt and laugh at the main character, you might see the Misfits.″

The Tourist.  Depp.  Jolie.  Venice.  How could it go wrong?  For the answer, you can either spend two hours watching the movie, or twelve minutes listening to the Misfit’s review.″

Thanks for listening!  We’ll be back in two weeks.

  1. I was so sure when Jim found the “head, Person In Charge” and explained the out-of-focus issue, the reply would be one of my favorites: “It looks just fine from here”. I then have to remind them the seats are “inside” the auditorium, not placed within the exit door frame; and they might consider actually entering the giant drapery-covered, cardboard box, laughingly referred to as a theatre, and force themselves to sit as they expect their patrons to do and see just how “fine” it looks ‘down there in the trenches’.

    I’ve been predicting the end of the movie theatre as we know it for some time now, but the current crop of technology available to the average consumer is really giving Mr. Theatre-owner a run for his money – 3D notwithstanding. Maybe this time…

    • Usually if the film is only slightly out of focus, I’ve learned its not even worth telling anyone. At best, someone opens the theater door, sticks their head in for a moment, then turns around and says, “It looks OK to me.” In this case, because it was 3D, it was either complain (and hope for the best) or just leave. What I can’t believe is that a place like the Arc Light charges something like six dollars more, supposedly for perfect presentation, and I still have to spend my time complaining about the subpar projection. I say, get those satellites ready and start beaming everything down to my TV. The “audience experience” many old-time filmgoers bemoan losing is already gone.
