#63. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) — A Shoot the WISB Subcast

16 Oct

Pinocchio, man-children, and mashed potato towers, oh my! In honor of the film’s 40th anniversary digitally remastered theater release, Shaun, Jen, David, and Joyce discuss the 1977 Spielberg classic, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. They explore how this film still evokes the science fictional “sense of wonder”, how it fits into Spielberg’s career within the context of America in the 1970s, how the French New Wave played a role in the concept, and how communication is a consistent theme throughout the film. We go a bit longer than usual, but only so we could really dig into all the bits and pieces.

#61: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) — A Shoot the WISB Subcast

21 Aug

Rampant misogyny, batipi, and failed plots, oh my! Shaun, Paul, and Alex join together to absolutely destroy the mess that is Luc Besson’s newest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. They REALLY hated this movie, guys. From the wish-fulfillment misogyny of Valerian himself to the wasted potential of Rihanna’s character (and virtually everything else), they found a lot of things that just went horribly wrong with this CGI extravaganza.
