Joining us is a damn nice lady, comedian, actor and all around performer Jen Bosworth. Fresh off her one-woman show entitled “Why Not Me. Love, Cancer and Jack White,” Jen talks to us about her experience acting here in Chicago as well as LA. She can sling a Nic Cage story with the best of them to boot. Safe to say we had a great time talking to Jen about Courtroom Movies and a bunch of other stuff.

The verdict is… LISTEN TO IT!

CinemaWAR: Is Kevin Smith Still Relevant?
Sponsored by: Onscribe

He sat down at his keyboard, the half-eaten sandwich taunting him from his periphery. How do I write a post about writing a post, he thought. How is that done? He let his fingers stretch and began to type. He enjoyed the felling of knowing where the letters are in space as a subconscious muscle memory. He enjoyed not thinking about typing and letting the words flow out of his mind directly onto the screen. He began to write a post about writing a post about his podcast. The episode in particular that he was writing about that day, just happened to be about “Meta” Movies. Meta a term, especially in art, used to characterize something that is characteristically self-referential. This, of course, was entirely coincidental.

Ok, enough of that.

We also have a great guest this week, Director Param Gill who’s recent movie Last Supper is buzzing on the film festival circuit this fall having just won at the San Francisco Movie Fest. Param helps us get inside our own heads as he talks to us about his new movie, filmmaking, and  his experience working with Eddie Griffin and Penny Marshal! what a great guest!

In addition to all of that we have I for an I, cinemaWAR, reviews, news and all the greatness you have come to expect from a podcast about movies that are about podcasts about movies…. Think about it.

This week on CinemaJaw we take a long look at the long take. Some views are best left unbroken by a cut away. There is a tone and kinetic feeling that can be conveyed by a good filmmaker who knows when not to edit a scene. The rehearsals and the blocking, the camera movements and the technical challenges can make the long take a real achievement to pull off! There are some truly special Long Takes, and we hope we’ve picked you a good batch!

CinemaJawWcalebPike

Joining us is fellow podcastser of the DSLRVideoShooter show, Caleb Pike. Caleb  is a camera operator, editor, and podcaster based in Chicago, IL. His experience branches from documentary and commercial, to film and educational material. In 2010, Caleb started DSLR Video Shooter where he podcasts, writes reviews, and shares tools and techniques for filmmakers. What a perfect guest to discuss long takes with!

You’ll find all the usual goodies on a long episode on long takes.

This week on CinemaJaw we play ourselves in the movie of this podcast, or something like that, as we cover Top 5 Actors Who Play Themselves. Not including documentaries or simple banal cameos (otherwise Stan Lee would have for sure been at the top of Matt K’s list) we try to dig a little deeper and find the creative roles where actors play a version of themselves. It can get quite meta.

Joining us this week from your source for cinebriation, Alcohollywood podcast are Clint and Jared! These guys know many things, but no two things better than movies and cocktails. Needless to say, they are awesome!

So stop playing yourself and take a listen…

This week on CinemaJaw we are following up with Nick Nummerdor and Andrew Morgan of Little Cabin Films who we last interviewed back in January of 2013. At that time they were just about to launch a Kickstarter for their documentary film Vannin’. Well guess what, the Kickstarter was a success and we have a finished film to review and discuss (and it did not disappoint)!

In honor of the theme of Vannin, (which obviously is vans) we are exploring the greatest movie vehicles of all time, with the help of Nick and Andrew. Vehicles can mean a lot of things in Hollywood, as we will discover, and there is an amazing argument about just what counts as a vehicle on this episode!

In addition, we also take a moment to reflect on Robin Williams career, and we remember his best.

All of that plus our usual bits, Reviews, Interviews and Trivia. It’s a jam packed jaw.

CinemaJaw 201, Best Suburbia Movies w/guest Curtis Gilbert

Trivia: Expendables Movie Trivia
CinemaWAR: Will Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles be a hit or a flop?
Sponsored by: The New 400 Theaters

SuburbiaThe Urban dictionary defines Suburbia as : “the future slums of america where all the teenagers will either grow stupid and procreate more idiots or they will turn to violence and vandalism after years of boredom.” That seems pretty accurate to us. Images of pastel colored homes and white picket fences dance in our head, yet a sinister secret lies hidden behind those well manicured lawns. Suburbia can be a happy place where bikes are being ridden for the first time and new loves bloom like the rose bushes that creep up latices to your teenage sweethearts window. However, Suburbia can be a bleak and tragic place where hunting neighborhood pets, dodging bullies who extort not only milk money, and doing every drug under the sun just to avoid the soul wringing boredom has been told to be commonplace. In the movies Suburbia has been all of that and more. Matt and Ryan are both from the burbs, which in our eyes qualifies them as experts to pick for us the Top 5 Suburban Movies.

However, why just do it by their lonesomes? Someone is throwing tiny pebbles at the CinemaJaw window at 11:45, and it is none other than P3 Mediaworks Co-Founder and Filmmaker, Curtis Gilbert. Along with his brother Corey, Curtis has spent the last five years crafting Convergence, a web series focused on the past, present, and future of renewable energy. The series has been describes as X-Files in the suburbs, hence this week’s theme. We highly encourage you to check out the Kickstarter for Convergence and lend your support to independent cinema.

Listen to this as you mow your lawn:

TrainWhat can you say about Train Movies? … Turns out not so much. Back in the day (20s,, 30s, 40s and 50s) there was a slew of them, in fact the very first popular motion picture ever featured a train coming at the screen that was said to make movie goers jump out of their seat to get out of the way!  However in modern film the train just ain’t what it used to be. Sure there are a few exceptions, and in honor of one of the most recent examples Snowpiercer, we take a look down the tunnel and listen for that choo-choo as we cover our Top 5 Train Movies.

colt-cabana-cinemajaw

We need a guest who knows how to take a hit. Someone who can be told the topic is train movies and get right back up… Enter Pro Wrestler, Comedian, Podcaster and all around Chicago hero… Colt Cabana. Colt travels the world as a proud alternative & independent performer. His hybrid comedic style along with his crossover appeal has made Colt one of the most in-demand wrestlers around. He wrestles anywhere fron burlesque comedy shows like Lucha VaVoom to cult underground happenings like ICP’s Gathering of the Juggalos. He’s also taken his wit and humor to such shows as Marc Maron’s WTF & Chicago’s Second City Main Stage. This guy is a true polymath, and we are happy to have him on board for our Train Movies episode!

In addition to the bar car, the baggage car, and the passenger car, we also have the I for an I car, CinemaWAR car and a couple others.

So take a listen this week. I promise we don’t go off the rails… much.

 

JawHeads… CinemaJaw episode 200 is coming! We aould love for you to call in and give us your silliest thoughts and memories of the show, or just wish us well. We will play many of these voicemails on the show.  Just dial (940) 784-3529, and leave us a message! Cheers!
