Stand By Me (1986)

In our latest episode, presented by #AllThingsFilm.net, we discuss the #1986 #RobReiner classic, #StandByMe. This was based on a short story from #StephenKing, starring #RiverPheonix, #CoreyFeldman, #WilWheaton, #JerryO’connell, and co-starring #KeiferSutherland, #JohnCusack, #CaseySiemaszko, and #RichardDreyfuss. 

 

Throughout this episode we examine the music of #BEKing, the actors, behind the scenes stories, and the transgenerational appeal of this film. We also discuss why this may be Rob Reiner’s masterpiece, the legacy of River Pheonix, the cult of Wil Wheaton, the underrated, but surprisngly great career of Jerry O’Connell, and the tragedy of Corey Feldman never getting a chance to demonstrate his acting prowess beyond this film. 

 

There are also brief notes on the score, the #extradiagetic sound, some discussion on Keifer Sutherland, and #MarkTwain’s #HuckleberryFinn and #TomSawyer who are quite close to River Pheonix and Wil Wheaton’s characters, Gordie and Chris.

 

We also have a contest running.

Flipped (2010)

It feels like a bit of Rob Reiner is in the air over at the SoylentGreen Screen Headquarters, with Michelle picking the movies she decided to start things off with Flipped (2010).

When Bryce moves in next door to Julie, Julie has an instant crush on Bryce… or course Bryce didn’t feel this way.

Bryce comes from a hardworking, white collar all American family, whereas Julie was free spirit also from a hardworking blue collar family. Both have different background, both from different classes, but no matter how much Julie tried, she couldn’t get Bryce’s attention…. Or does she?

The team was in different of the film, but this movie showed gender roles had flipped, the time period was flipped, and the class of families also flipped.

Sit back and put those ear plugs in and enjoy Flipped.

Accepted (2006)

In this episode, presented by AllThingsFilm.net we finally #Accepted that #justinLong is here to stay. This was a film from 2006 that slipped under the radar but became a little known cult favourite. This was directed by #StevePink (same fellow who brought us #HotTubTimeMachine) and co-stars #JonahHill, #BlakeLively (#GossipGirl), #MariaThayer (#TammyLittlenut from #StrangersWithCandy, as well as #LewisBlack, and one of our favourite up and comers #RobinLordTaylor (#ThePenguin from #Gotham).

This is the story of a kid who was rejected from his choice of universities and decided to start up his own college. While this sounds silly on the surface, we examine the real life learning institutes that started similar programs, the achievements of Justin Long, we play a brief game of six degrees of Justin Long, we even briefly discuss the #Bollywood Remake. That’s right, this little film that could inspired Bollywood and real life educational institutions. 

There is quite a lot more to this film than it has been given credit for. We hope you enjoy it, and we’d love to hear from you @sgspod, you can also find us on Facebook with a brief search.

Lord of the Flies (1963)

In this episode the Soylent GreenScreen team, with the aid of Sean Fallon from #AudiencesEverywhere.net, venture into uncharted territories with the 1963 adaptation of #WilliamGolding’s #LordOfTheFlies.

Through this discussion, they discuss how much they hated #Piggy, the themes of inhumanity and evil, and the cultural impact of the film. They also compare it to modernist variations such as #ABC’s #Lost and that one time #TheSimpsons did it, as well as trying to find a #SciFi equivalent to determine how well the film holds up, and if it is worth watching.
