Binary System Podcast #82 – Alice Isn’t Dead Part 2 Episode 3 “Abandoned Places”

This week we tried to recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead, but it’s this really atmospheric episode that doesn’t do well as a recap (it’s like trying to verbally describe an excellent sunset: you kinda had to be there.)

So we gave that up and talked about Only Lovers Left Alive (and strategic side-butt), the new trailer for Bladerunner 2049 (and how Jóhann Jóhannsson is doing the music and yes to all that), the upcoming Twin Peaks season and the book The Secret History of Twin Peaks and (*pushes glasses up*) the difference between an epistolary history and an oral one.

Movie Issues: Snowpiercer

This week the guys dive deep into the world of the South Korean/American film known as Snowpiercer. In the distant future the world has been thrown into a ice age and the only remaining humans ride in a train that never stops as it goes around the whole world. The front end is the super rich and powerful, the back end the poor and the weak. The backend has had enough and is going to fight their way to the front and change the way things are. They’ll stop at nothing to get there no matter the cost. It’s a rich movie that really explores how far you would go to survive. Please download and listen in as the guys really get into the movie and discuss it from top to bottom.  Read On

Movie Issues: Snowpiercer

Snowpiercer is a 2013 South Korean-American science fiction film based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette. Making his first English-language debut film is South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho. The movie stars Chris Evans, South Korean actors Kang-ho Song and Go Ah-sung, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, and Ed Harris. This is one of the most interesting and compelling films of 2014 so far. It’s powerful and exuberant. Hands down one of the most thought provoking films you’ll see this year.
