Episode 63 – The Hateful Eight

, with special guest:

The Hateful Eight

Those of you who listened to our last episode may have noticed we said this episode would be about The Phantom of the Opera.  Surprise!  With The Hateful Eight leaving theaters soon, we decided we should shuffle off to the movie theater and check out Quentin Tarantino’s latest offering.  Melissa actually saw the film in 70mm glory while Tim and Jena got to see the digital print from the front row.  We’ll talk about the film and a lot of the social implications contained in the film.  Somehow, we fail to talk about the score.  But it was really good.

Our next movie will, for totally sure, be The Phantom of the Opera!

    Enjoyable show! We also ran into problems with projectionists not knowing what they were doing: the sound was delayed by half a second.

    Sad to say, that experience has convinced me that film is COMPLETELY dead, and I’ll avoid it from now on (unless it’s at a place like Music Box that can handle it.)

    1. There will probably always be pockets of people who keep the art of film projection alive, but film for mass distribution is, I’m afraid, done.
