Slackers Selection CinemaCast: Episode 45


Thanks for checking out this week's edition of the Slackers Selection CinemaCast!

Another slower-than-usual week, but that will probably be the case at least for the next month or so, as January and February are traditionally very slow times in the movie world (outside of some film festivals and awards shows that we'll probably focus on more with BonusCasts).

New releases this weekend included "Mama", "The Last Stand" and 'Broken City". Unfortunately, only one of us was able to get to "The Last Stand"; hopefully we'll have a bit more discussion on some new releases next weekend - though, again, most of these aren't incredibly inspiring movies that we're dying to get to the theaters and see. It shouldn't be a shock if we pass some of these up.

Next week looks to get even worse, as "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters", "Movie 43", and "Parker" all hit theaters. We go over which we might be seeing, if any.

Otherwise, only a couple of notable films were seen outside of theaters this week. Nathan got in a viewing of "End of Watch", while Alex checked out "Seven Psychopaths". Also, we do take a few minutes breaking down the upcoming Die Hard movie, and give some suggestions as to how the film could have been anything but the disaster we expect.

This is one of our shorter podcasts, so you shouldn't have much trouble with it. Be sure to give it a listen!
