The Flickcast – Episode 10: New Moon

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOONWelcome to Episode 10 of The Flickcast. We’re very happy to have reached this milestone and thank you, the readers and listeners, for making it happen. We appreciate you. Okay, enough pats on the back, let’s get on with the show.

Previously on The Flickcast, Chris, Matt and Christina discussed various topics including a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie without Joss Whedon, the reboot of Flight of the Navigator, and the merits of Terminator: Rise of the Machines.

This week the team is back once again and ready for action. In this episode, they discuss a broad range of topics including the Twilight phenomenon, the MTV Movie Awards, the success of Pixar’s Up, the merits of Drag Me to Hell, some cool Deadpool and E3 news, Danny McBride’s new movie project, the Megan Fox as Wonder Woman “controversy”, who we think should star in a Wonder Woman movie and that Matt, for some reason, doesn’t seem to like Jessica Biel or Hallle Berry.

Plus, there’s some new picks this week including Matt’s favorite new horror movie, Drag Me to Hell, one of Christina’s favorite movies, Closer, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Chris’ favorite video game where you get to kill terrorists, drive fast, shoot machine guns from an airplane and blow stuff up.

    Well, I can never take Matt seriously again.

    “Up” was manipulative? ALL movies are manipulative. I’m sorry, but when a movie thematically deals with death, regret, and grief – it’s going to get a little emotionally heavy. I’d argue that the brilliance of “Up” was that it was able to convey a lifetime’s romance – through incredible filmmaking – powerfully in a scant 10 minutes, something that Benjamin Button could not do in nearly 3 hours. Hell, it makes a great deal of romance flicks look paltry in comparison.

    Between this, the groaner of your “Sixth Sense” dismissal (Bruce Willis _wasn’t_ playing Bruce Willis? WTF?!) and liking Twilight – yeah, I think I’m just going to stick to the Slashfilm podcast from now on.
