Quirky, but loveable characters . . . clever usage of music during a slow motion sequence . . . dramatic tracking shots. No – the fellows are not talking about the latest "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" sequel. As you’ve probably deduced they are diving into the world of Wes Anderson with a discussion of his most recent effort "Moonrise Kingdom." Just for good measure they also throw in some movie news and recommendations for films you might want to catch up on.
Alan & Chris discuss Will & Zach. Or to put it another way - the Footcandle critics return from the multiplex with their thoughts on the political satire “The Campaign” starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis.
We are pleased to be bringing Wes Anderson's latest film "Moonrise Kingdom" to Hickory on September 13th at 7pm. Anderson ("Rushmore", "Fantastic Mr. Fox) is known for his unique cinematic style and this latest film has been cited as one of his best. Anderson stand-by actors (Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman) are among this enormous cast that also features Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Frances McDormand.
About the film:
Filmmaker Wes Anderson’s latest tale takes place on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965. The film tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness.
Whether you only venture to the multiplex or hold out for art house darlings this episode of Footcandle Films has something for you. For the big budget summer tent pole movie fans the gentlemen spend a few moments discussing the newly spiffed up version of the sci-fi tale “Total Recall”. Afterwards they take a trip to the indie film house that sells espresso and beer on tap and discuss the star-studded British import “The Bext Exotic Marigold Hotel”. Also in the episode are the usual segments of Movie News & Film Picks.
Added Bonus: Stay tuned after theme music for “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” spoiler talk. Yeah that’s right…we figured somebody had to do it…why not us?
