Paleo-Cinema Podcast 66 - The Assassination of Paradise

This time around we get our kicks in Paleo-Cinema 66 with an early proto-steampunk extravaganza starring Oliver Reed and Diana Rigg The Assassination Bureau Limited and a look at Queensland politics in the 1980s through a satirical and alternate eye in the AFI winning and almost forgotten whimsy and wonderfulness of Goodbye Paradise starring Ray Barrett and Robyn Nevin. Have a great new year, people.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast 64 - The Kremlin Drivers

For Paleo-Cinema 64 I look at a couple of movies with totally awe-inspiring ensemble casts. Both of them are somewhat obscure and definitely underappreciated. The first is the 1957 gritty Brit drama Hell Drivers starring Stanley Baker, Herbert Lom, Peggy Cummins and Patrick McGoohan and the 1970 brutal spy drama The Kremlin Letter directed by John Huston and starring Patrick O'Neill, Richard Boone and Bibi Andersson.

Also, the Ted Flicker directed 1967 political satire, The President's Analyst starring James Coburn, Godfrey Cambridge and Severn Darden. The voicemail number (US) is (206) 350-5440.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast 59 - Three Strange Cinematic Worlds.

For podcast 59 - I talk about movies that show three different worlds and there's an interview with me done by Erk of Erk Pod and ChannelErk at Aussiecon 4.

In Nothing Lasts Forever (1984), Zach Galligan finds that tramps run the cities of the World and that retired people take buses to the Moon to go shopping.

In 99 & 44/100% Dead (1973), Richard Harris is a hit man in a gangster world where Edmond O'Brien & Bradford Dillman fight for control of a city.

Finally, in Night of The Eagle a.k.a Burn Witch Burn (1962), rationalist university lecturer Peter Wyngarde discovers that the true nature of the World is not what he thinks it is. This one was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation in 1963.

My Panel Committments for Aussiecon 4 - the 2010 World Science Fiction Convention

How to enjoy this convention

Some experienced campaigners share anecdotes and general good adviceon how to get the most out of your Aussiecon Four experiences. So goodthat we’re running it twice. New comers should attend to find out what this Worldcon stuff is all about. Old timers should attend to ensure that they can refute all the vile canards from the panel. Toni Weisskopf, Jack Bell, Andrew I. Porter, Terry Frost, Megan Dansie Thursday 1500 Room 204; Saturday 1000 Room 204 (NOTE THIS ITEM IS BEING RUN TWICE)

To Eternity And Beyond: We’re all Futurists right?

So where is fandom going? What will it mean to be a fan at Aussiecon Five? A gaggle of nostradami will put their predictive powers to the test. We may even bury a virtual time capsule to be opened at Aussiecon Five.Gina Goddard, PRK, Terry FrostFriday 1000 Room 213

Micro-audiences and the online critic

Between 2007 and 2009, 36 major newspaper-based film critics in the USA had their contracts dropped, leading to a growing dearth of quality movie reviews among the nation’s print media. At the same time an overwhelming number of online amateurs have risen to take their place. Through blogs, podcasts and other forms of social media, this new army of critics are very different: the broad-but-narrow viewpoint of 20th century criticism has been replaced by the narrow-but-deep focus of the 21st. A look at how the world of criticism has changed, not just for film but for all art: the advantages and drawbacks, whether we will ever see 20th century style professional critics again, and should we miss them if we don’t?

First off, Akira Kurosawa's 1954 action masterpiece Seven Samurai, then John Sturges' iteration, the 1960s western The Magnificent Seven and finally, the Roger Corman produced version, set in outer space, Battle Beyond The Stars.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast 49 Three By Sam Fuller

Excuse the change in the podcast numbering. I've rolled the three music special podcasts into the numbering regime which makes this one the 49th Paleo-Cinema. This time around I look at Samuel Fuller's Pickup On South Street, Shock Corridor and The Naked Kiss. So it's pickpockets, reporters, prostitutes and wards full of insane nymphomaniacs.
