Chris’ M and W have found themselves face to face for a VERY LONG weekend and to celebrate that fact they offer up for your approval this fantastic TOTALLY LIVE AND UNEDITED episode of Casta La Vista!

Listen in for all the usual bits and bobs including reviews of Easy A, Red, Saw 3D and Paranormal Activity 2 PLUS the news and Castamind. Oh and speaking of which, Chris M forgets to announce his next topic for Castamind…it’s School Of Rock. Suggest any possible questions for him via the email.

Let us know what you think of the live format via all the regular channels, and listen in for a special treat as we try out a new way of breaking up the segments; farewell Shotgun noise, we never really knew thee…

Thanks bye!

    Podcasting and driving at the same time – pretty impressive stuff.

    Of course when we podcast Lee and I are simultaneously performing brain surgery so you’ve a way to go before catching us up.

    Thanks for including our clip despite the fact it had very little content of any actual worth πŸ™‚

    I think I should have prefaced it by explaining I am a man who prefers not to have to actually think when watching films. I do far too much thinking at work, and don’t see why I should have to do it unpaid on my own time. Therefore the finest films for me are well made popcorn films.

    And Red, in my view, was a very well made popcorn film. The pacing was good – there were no lulls or boring bits, the action enjoyable (I don’t have the problems with suspension of disbelief with this sort of film – I take things pretty much as they come and this film never set itself up as “realistic” as far as I could see).

    As for having enough of comic adaptations. I personally think that unless you actually knew it came from a comic before going in, you’d not realise that was it’s source material at all. And anyway, comics are a very cinematic medium in the first place. You could even equate them to storyboards.

    As for Wanted, comparing that to this film is fighting talk! Wanted is completely morally bankrupt and wins my award for most repugnant movie of all time. I wrote a huge rant about it somewhere but I can’t find it right now.

    So basically, you are both wrong. RED was ace πŸ™‚

    I haven’t seen Wanted so I can’t comment- however it is one of those movies that I have only ever heard really great things about OR been told it is absolute garbage.

    Completely agree on the Comics-as-storyboards argument, just wondering if it isn’t all getting a bit familiar now…but like you say, if the punters don’t realise they’re watching a comic-book adaptation then who really cares?

    I choose not to get involved in a argument about movie realism- one day we can do a 4-way Pod and set that as the topic of discussion!

    Thanks for getting involved…thank Lee too, at least we can remember HIS name!

    nananananananah CASTA!!! Great podcast guys. Watch out for pedestrians though πŸ™‚

  5. wakeman24 says:

    Pedestrians were not the issue- blasted buses and taxis and Range Rovers were our downfall…and a lack of appropriate signage which is why we got lost!

    Glad you liked it, it was great fun to do.

    Remember to suggest your own dedication and anti-dedication for our next episode!

  6. […] Casta listeners will have heard Lee and Dan in our live episode earlier in the year so will already be aware that they somehow manage to fit just as much nonsense […]
