The Proper Application of Guns

Winners don’t use guns, kids.

Except in the movies! In the movies, all the winners use guns! Yay guns!

This week we talk about Keanu’s big comeback in John Wick, Eastwood’s take on a real life war-hero in American Sniper, and an ex-superhero-actor playing an ex-superhero-actor in Birdman. Pete also watched the Annotated Star Wars, which is pretty cool.

For homework there’s HBO’s series Generation Kill, the film Jarhead, and the classic western from the director of American Sniper, Unforgiven.

So come sit under the tree on the hill with Pete and Justin and take another drink… ’cause we all have it coming, kid.

Children’s Stories

We kick off 2015 with a discussion of the Golden Globes: what we liked, what we didn’t, and the unavoidable lament that comperes Tina and Amy had so little time at the ceremony.

Then we talk about Disney flick Big Hero 6, the final Middle-Earth film The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies and musical Into The Woods.

For homework we have Chicago, Agent Carter and Jane the Virgin.

So pull up a wheelchair, grab a pair of binoculars and explore the inherent voyeurism of cinema with Pete and Justin on the Shoot the Glass podcast!
