AYT #128: Green Room // Hardcore Henry

playlist podcast [BIG]

Great news! Adjust Your Tracking is now part of The Playlist. Make sure to subscribe there to get AYT and other shows right away. We’re very excited for this new step in the podcast.

On this episode, we talk about director Jeremy Saulnier‘s latest film, “Green Room,” an intensely entertaining and violent horror action film — his followup to “Blue Ruin” — about a punk band stuck in a life or death fight against a group of neo-nazis after a show goes wrong. We’re big fans of this filmmaker so tune into find out why. Beyond praising that film, though, we also look at it in conjunction with another recent genre release, “Hardcore Henry,” an over-the-top actioner shot to look like a first-person POV video game. The films represent polar opposite extremes on the spectrum of modern exploitation cinema and that’s where the conversation is focused for most this episode. Both have their merits, but we argue one is far better (and better for you) than the other, even though they both put the audience through the wringer. I also make time for the next HOLD UP segment, where we look back at a film one of us likes but we’re not sure how it holds up: “Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.” We’ll discuss that film on the next episode of AYT.

AYT #127: Everybody Wants Some!! // La Haine

playlist podcast [BIG]

Great news! Adjust Your Tracking is now part of The Playlist. Make sure to subscribe there to get AYT and other shows right away. We’re very excited for this new step in the podcast.

On the previous episode Erik and Joe gushed about Jeff Nichols‘ “Midnight Special,” and they open this latest episode of the podcast with a followup on its scary box office possibilities (or lack thereof). But the main section of the show is dedicated to Richard Linklater‘s latest film, “Everybody Wants Some!!,” and beyond our review, we dive into a deeper discussion about the film’s specific, mostly-white male perspective and what that means in an era of #OscarSoWhite movie culture. The final segment of the podcast is our latest edition of Hold Up, in which we discuss Mathieu Kassovitz‘ brilliant 1995 film “La Haine,” which is possibly even more relevant today than during its initial release.

AYT #126: Midnight Special // Batman v Superman

playlist podcast [BIG]Great news! Adjust Your Tracking is now part of The Playlist. Make sure to subscribe there to get AYT and other shows right away. We’re very excited for this new step in the podcast.

On this latest episode, hosts Joe von Appen and Erik McClanahan can’t help but open with their ranty feelings on the “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” It turns out to be good context for the meat of this episode, discussing the power of Jeff Nichols‘ latest film, “Midnight Special.” The film rolled out to more theaters this weekend and will expand from there. Now that it’s playing in wider release, we hope you’re able to track it down. Listen to the podcast to hear why we love it so.

AYT #125: 10 Cloverfield Lane // Creative Control

playlist podcast [BIG]

Great news! Adjust Your Tracking is now part of The Playlist. Make sure to subscribe there to get AYT and other shows right away. We’re very excited for this new step in the podcast.

On this episode of Adjust Your Tracking, Joe and Erik discuss two new low budget sci-fi theatrical releases, “10 Cloverfield Lane” and “Creative Control.” We look mainly at how the marketing and budget differences between the two films reveal how much franchising and branding are leading the higher profile film, with its would-be connections to 2008’s “Cloverfield” (perhaps to its detriment), while the smaller movie, “Creative Control,” is another feather in the cap of new big player in town, Amazon Studios.
