This week, Joe and Erik pack in a lot of topics, starting with thoughts on the Oscars and especially the controversy over the visual effects picketing go on during the ceremony and the fallout for companies making amazing digital effects for the movies. Check out this article by Drew McWeeny over at HitFix for context. Then it’s on to a chat about the new movie Jack the Giant Slayer, which Erik saw and gives his thoughts on, but this also leads to a brief discussion of director Bryan Singer‘s career to date as well as the difference between escapist movie experiences and the often more lasting experience of serious arthouse fare. This leads us to our review of the excellent foreign film War Witch, which we caught at PIFF recently and opens in Portland at the end of March.
