71- Wind River and Annabelle Creation

It’s a two-man show today as Jamie’s working the majority of this week! We discuss the Sundance hit, Wind River, as well as the Box Office King of August (a little prognostication, but I’m not far off): Annabelle Creation.

 

Does Wind River have Oscar Buzz? (It better!) Will a sequel to a spinoff from a guy who spent years making shorts in his house in Sweden be the scariest movie of 2017 (likely, yes).

 

Then, Jamie talks about his #52PickUp, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.

 

You all may have first heard about Christina Applegate during her run on Married With Children, but I first fell in love with her here.

 

Opening and a Special Announcement! (Starts at 00:00)

Alex– Wind River (1:48)

Tim’s Communal– Annabelle Creation [With Spoilers] (10:18)

#52PickUp #33 Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead (21:23)

For reference, here are our photos for the second topic: Kevin | Jamie | Alex

The End of #52PickUp 2017?

I began the #52PickUp series as a way to get in touch with my roots – into why I wanted to be a filmmaker – and so, I designed this neat way to revisit the movies that shaped my tastes and in actuality; me. I thought it would be fun to see how these films would hold up against my current interests. Truth be told, it was fun…

And media reflected that message of hope and climate change reversal in the form of many things, namely, Captain Planet. But since they didn’t make a movie for that, I watched the 1996 “eco-friendly comedy:”

Bio-Dome Poster

Bio-Dome. I remembered loving this film. Pauly Shore was on fire in these few years with the likes of Encino Man, Son-in-Law, A Goofy Movie, Jury Duty, and In the Army NowBio-Dome was the last of this storied run.

Wonder why

Reason? Exhibit A: The “infamous” fart scene.
