Cinema Misfits Podcast, Episode 40: Fred Koenekamp Interview part 2, Conan, The Debt, and Attack the Block

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

Conan the Barbarian.  Keep the first twenty minutes, call it Young Conan, and you’ve got a great short.  Add an hour and a half of confused story and bad acting, and you’ve got the new Conan the Barbarian movie.″

Fred Koenekamp.  He’s faced the challenge of putting epic-size films on the screen like Patton and Papillon, and  he’s been in the thick of the action on a roller rink in Kansas City Bomber, but maybe the greatest challenge he faced was a bunch of bees on The Swarm!  Part 2 of Jim’s interview with cinematographer Fred Koenekamp.″

The Debt.  No, it’s not a movie about your student loan.  Instead, this espionage thriller tells the story of three Mossad agents as they attempt to apprehend a Nazi war criminal.  No word on whether their student loans were ever paid.″

Attack the Block.  What do you get when you combine great direction, smart screenwriting, terrific acting, and a budget that’s probably a bit larger than the craft service bill for Super 8?  A surprisingly good film, that’s what.  Remember, if you see only one kids v.s. aliens movie this year, make sure it’s Attack the Block.″

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