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.

Battle Royale is the story of forty-two ninth-grade students from a Japanese high school forced by legislation to compete in a Battle Royale. The students are given a bag with a randomly selected weapon and rations of food and water, before being sent off to kill each other until one survives–or they all die.

The movie focuses on how they cope. Some play the game like the psychotic #Kiriyama or the sexual #Mitsuko, others like the heroes of the movie, #Shuya, #Noriko, and #Kawada try to find a way out, without violence. As the numbers lower, is there any way for Shuya, and his classmates to survive?

Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)

For our 50th recording, and first anniversary, we bring Michelle’s dad, Bryan back for a bumper episode to discuss #StarWars: #EpisodeIV #ANewHope, starring #MarkHamill, #HarrisonFord, #CarrieFisher, #AnthonyDaniels, #PeterMayhew and #JamesEarlJones. Our primary focus was to look at the impact this film had on the #1970s. Through this discussion we look at the initial reception of Star Wars, the changes made to the film over the last 38 years and how it felt to see Star Wars for the very first time back in #1977.

We also get behind the scenes and look at the origins of the film, what #GeorgeLucas expected of the film, the deals he had to make and his bet with #StevenSpielberg. 

The audio embedded is from the original teaser trailer released in 1976. We used this instead of the traditional #JohnWilliams score to reflect on what it would have been like to have seen Star Wars in its original run.

Don Bluth’s Titan A.E.

In this episode we discuss the final #DonBluth film, #TitanAE, cowritten by #JossWhedon, and starring the vocal talents of #MattDamon, #DrewBarrymore, #BillPullman, #NathanLane, #RosieODonnell and one of our favourites #JohnLeguizamo.

 

 

This is a hard to find film that is out of print in Australia, but has become a cult favourite amongst #Firefly and #Serenity fans for its connections to #JossWhedon and also to animation fans for transcending Cell to CGI animation and utilising #2D and #3Danimation from Industrial Light and Magic. While we had mixed responses to the film, as two of our podcasters loved it, and two were indifferent, but the level of work did not go under appreciated. 

The topics we cover include the changeover from 2D to 3D, the end of Don Bluth’s career, the rise of Joss Whedon, how much credit does Joss Whedon really deserve, and last but not least, we examine the merits of the film; from story to structure, to voicework, and whether or not the film condones genocide.
