As usual on the Casual Cinecast, the guys start with their “What’s On Our Minds?” segment where they talk about what film and TV they’ve watched over the last week or so! Chris watched all 8 episodes of the new Amazon Prime series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan which stars John Krasinski as Jack Ryan! Mike watched the new Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac film, Operation Finale and was inspired by last week’s 2001: A Space Odyssey episode and revisited the Stanley Kubrick film Eyes Wide Shut which stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman! Lastly, Justin revisited the Extended Cut of Terrence Malick‘s The New World which stars Colin Farrell, Christian Bale, Christopher Plummer and Q’orianka Kilcher and he also discusses the Extended Cut of Malick’s The Tree of Life which will be released on The Criterion Collection on September 11th!
Next up, they review the new John Cho film, Searching, from director Aneesh Chaganty. This new thriller is a “Screen Life” film which means the entire film is made up of screen captures of laptops, cell phones, traffic cameras, YouTube videos and much more. The main story involves John Cho playing a father whose daughter goes missing and he tries to track her down through her social media accounts and friends with the help of a detective, played by Debra Messing. Find out below what Mike, Chris and Justin thought of the film:
