The Sum of All Frears

Broken Projector

Through music and misery, we ask the big questions this week. Specifically, Neil Miller and Geoff get philosophical over High Fidelity and debate whether we’re truly defined by what we like (as opposed to what we’re like) when it comes to relationships. Plus, Geoff describes a few ways to get into the TV show-writing business (and a few ways not to).

And on our main stage, the stellar Stephen Frears joins us to talk about Philomenaand capriciousness, and to offer perhaps the single most important piece of filmmaking advice the show has ever heard.

You should follow Neil (@rejects), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.

The Red Honeymoon

Broken Projector

What happens after The Red Wedding?

With Game of Thrones back for its fourth season on Sunday, we’re delivering a singularly-dedicated episode where A Cast of Kings co-host Joanna Robinson and Broken Projector fan favorite Neil Miller join us for a spoiler-less look at what lies ahead (besides Winter).

Neil has already seen the first three episodes and reviewed the spirit of the season, and we’re up on all the books, so we follow up the safe portion with a segment focused on spoilers that might shock and amaze virgin viewers.

Something for everyone! Except people who’ve never seen the show or read the books. Sorry about that.

Supernatural Born Killers

Broken Projector

This week on the show we tackle some cinematic paranormal problems with Mystic Party! hosts Brea Grant and Zane Grant. The ultimate lesson is to stay away from everything because it’s all haunted and trying to kill you.

Plus, Geoff will answer your screenwriting questions about contests and short film writing, we’ll chat about whether or not we actually want any new Indiana Jones movies, and we’ll turn to your responses to follow up on last week’s discussion of truth in biographical films.

Incredible Sequels You Actually Want to See

Broken Projector

Ah, the elusive allure of sequels. What makes you want to revisit a movie universe? What has you leaping to your feet during the credits hoping that the gang will get back together for a second outing? What makes you forcefully cringe when news of a number two breaks? This week on the show, Geoff and I attempt to answer that question while offering a few movies that have the potential for incredible sequels. Like The Incredibles sequel.

Plus, we’ll look to a mysterious story about a potentially fake Twitter feed to examine how much truth we demand in our emotional response, and we’ll dissect movies with outdated teach (28.8 kbps modem!) while puzzling over films that wouldn’t even be possible today because of powerful tech advancements. Somehow along the way, Moore’s Law meets Rule 34.

How To Build a Baby and Win an Oscar From Outer Space

Broken Projector

Children of Men Baby Scene

Fresh off his Oscar win on Sunday, Gravity visual effects supervisor Tim Webber joins us to talk about his work with Alfonso Cuaron and explain how we can build our own CGI babies at home.

Plus, we discuss how soon is too soon when it comes to real-life tragedy adaptations, and Josh Spiegel from Mousterpiece Cinema helps us debate the state of children’s movies (while envisioning a high octane version of Winnie The Pooh).

You should follow Josh (@mousterpiece), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.

And, as always, if you like the show (or hate it with seething fervor), please help us out with a review.

You know what’s even stranger? It’s a picture of a dozen people who all look great in it. When’s the last time your family took a picture where one of you wasn’t blinking or making a weird face? 
The professionally photogenic.
