Cinema Misfits Podcast, Episode 84: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street

ep-84-6n90
6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.

Walter-Mitty
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  Mitty is an anonymous everyman who uses fantasy as a way to escape from his… important and creatively rewarding job at LIFE magazine?  And his… understanding and supportive mother?  Not to mention his…new girlfriend who thinks he’s terrific?  Wait a minute.  Is this Mitty’s real life or one of his fantasies?

American-Hustle
American Hustle.  It’s less about Abscam than the bad hair decisions made by men in the 70s.  Bale has an elaborate comb over, Cooper sports a self-administered perm, and Renner tops off his head with an impressive pompadour.  It’s a regular rogue’s gallery of unfortunate hairstyles.

Wolf-of-Wall-Street
The Wolf of Wall Street.  Even though Martin Scorsese’s stock soared with Hugo, creatively he now finds himself in a bear market with The Wolf of Wall Street.
Thanks for listening! We’ll be back in three weeks.

  1. My favorite part of the discussion on Wolf of Wall Street is when Nancy calls you guys out for hyperbole for calling Leo’s performance great.
    The Wolf was undoubtedly too long, but I thought it was much more entertaining than it’s sister movie in DiCapprio decadence, The Great Gatsby. Those looking for meaning in that movie will be disappointed, but when I think back from last year’s movies I can’t think of any other flick that had me laughing harder than The Wolf. If you can think of any point me in their direction.
    Here’s my review of The Wolf of Wall Street … http://pablochiste.wordpress.com/2013/12/26/a-rich-mans-goodfellas-the-wolf-of-wall-street/
