Prepare to get lost in Kyle's moping, Jeff watching ALL THE MOVIES, and Michael's affection for Charlie Hunnam... It's been a long time coming, and while The Lost City of Z didn't make Michael cry (see "Movie Bets" episode), we made sure to catch up on film and book so could discuss in depth. Toss in a group hug over Thor: Ragnarok, a sales pitch for Brigsby Bear (SO GREAT!), and serious confusion over A Ghost Story - it's CineMAGIC!!!

Philip K Dick is a genius, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" is a classic, and we have TWO Blade Runner movies to discuss. Dispense with the formalities - let's do this! Show Notes Michael is not the only one super disappointed by "The Snowman" Denis on why he wants to tackle "Dune" and how that project contrasts with creating a sequel to Blade Runner....

Rather than continue discussing super happy, light hearted, and comedic novels/films, we decided to go in the complete opposite direction and embrace the sadness. Show Notes Lessons From the Screenplay: Game of Thrones - How to Evoke Emotion CineFix: 3 Brilliant Moments in Battle of the Bastards Collider has a great interview with Viggo Mortensen on The Road and his preparation.

Rather than put another dumb joke about ALL THE TITLES here, we'll say, "the episode is great and it covers really kick @$$ material. You will not be disappointed." Also, trailer talk re: Ready Player One, Thor: Ragnarok, and someone finished reading a GIANT Brandon Sanderson book... Show Notes Yes, the movie has had multiple names mostly because the marketing was so poorly handled Doug Liman also has a pretty ridiculous story regarding the many names, which is worth reading Proof that the sequel will indeed be named Live Die Repeat and Repeat along w/ promises that the ending of Edge will make more sense?!?!

It seems like we talked about this movie only yesterday (see our 25 Top Films of the 21st Century Episode), but it's time we do a FORMAL Literate Cinephiles review of The Social Network, and it's source material by Ben Mezrich. Show Notes The Director's Series: David Fincher One of our favs, Lessons from the Screenplay, has a great video essay on Sorkin, Structure, and Collaboration that is definitely worth checking out to use how non-linear structure is used to tell a story.

We've been talking about it incessantly since our Most Anticipated Films of 2017 episode, and now that it's here it gets an episode for itself. That's right, woodchuck chuckers, it's BABY DRIVER! Show Notes As mentioned multiple times, Nerdwriter did an excellent job of discussing how Edgar Wright makes transitions count, using Scott Pilgrim vs. the World as an amazing example. We've shared this before, but Every Frame's a Painting's video on Edgar Wright and visual comedy is definitely worth checking out. Michael mentioned an interview where Edgar Wright clues us in to Griff's fate - you can find that on The Empire Film Podcast released on 7/4/2017 ("Baby Driver Spoiler Special with Edgar Wright") If you'd like to support Literate Cinephiles, support us on Patreon and subscribe to the feed on Apple Podcasts!

We are 17 years into the 21st century, so why not make a list of the top 25 movies of the century so far? Everyone else is doing it! Michael, Kyle and Jeff provide their opinions on which movies should be on the list and why. Show Notes Here's the New York Times list that started it all. Cinefix did a pretty rad video essay on the anatomy of the highway scene in Sicario If you'd like to support Literate Cinephiles, support us on Patreon and subscribe to the feed on Apple Podcasts!
