The Podcast • Chapter 25
Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood Review
&
Game Of Thrones Discussion

What up yo.

New month, new podcast Oldboy and I sat down in front of the microphones and hit record on my overpriced MacBook Pro to discuss Tarantino’s new film, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood, and to celebrate the cinematic achievement it is.

We then dive into Martin Scorsese’s new teaser trailer for The Irishman which dropped the previous day and teams Marty back up with Robert De Niro in a film that will be released in theaters and on Netflix come fall.

And finally to wrap it all up, I ask the question I probably should have been more careful to ask, “What did you think of the final season of Game Of Thrones”?

A great battle ensues.

I say the last season was rushed, with flashes of brilliance and laziness. I didn’t realize we were at war until I saw the look on Oldboy’s face change.

He didn’t agree with my assessment, he instead fought on behalf of D&D, hailing the series as a masterpiece…final season included.

This is a raw, uncut 120 minute podcast people…chapter 25 of The Chronicles Of Wes And Oldboy.

Enjoy!

Title song is “(Can’t You) Trip Like I Do” by The Crystal Method and Filter (1997)

Being A Father:
6 Months In
&
THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS, 2001
THE FIRST RACE

I just watched all the Fast & Furious films.


It was sad to see Paul Walker in his youth, in his prime…part of a monster that started as a single bad ass movie


The tribute to him at the end of Furious 7 was beautiful


I felt that, in my opinion, my favorites of the 8 films were as follows:


8: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift


7: Fast & Furious


6: 2 Fast 2 Furious


5: The Fate of the Furious


4: Fast Five


3: Furious 7


2: Fast & Furious 6


1: The original…

THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS


Rest In Peace Paul Walker…

In Memoriam
Debbie Reynolds
&
Carrie Fisher
A Tragic Loss For The Family

Update: 12/28/2016: Debbie Reynolds, Carries mother, suffered a stroke and has also passed away.

Carrie Fisher personified the cinematic “Female Heroine” with her immortal portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars film franchise.

I don’t know that she ever openly recognized that she was the quintessential female hero to her millions of adoring fans around the world.
She seemed to feel the role was more of a curse then a privilege.

But young girls around the world recognized it.
Women, men, children around the world recognized it.
And the world of cinema recognized it, was altered forever by it…
And she will be immortalized because of it.

Kurt Cobain
25 Years Gone
The Impact And Legacy

Kurt Cobain ascended the golden ladder, a ladder most will never glimpse.
He he climbed to the very top…and saw a curtain, behind which he always thought would be his salvation.
He reached over the ladder and peaked behind…
And for whatever reason…
After years of imaging the solace he might find….
Whatever Kurt saw back there…
He didn’t want to take another step after that…

He just wanted off the ladder by any means necessary.

Once Again,
Snatched From The Hands Of Death
Why The Killing Is Immortal

I’ve seen many shows I love get brutally murdered.
But to see “The Killing” take 2 in the back of the head twice and get left for dead…then to come back to life again and again…this should tell the naysayers something.
As we stand on the precipice of it’s return, I wanted to write a few words to celebrate it.
Take a moment won’t you…
