Episode 49: The Shining
Over the last week and a half Hemant has been fighting off a bad cold. During this time he has spent a lot of time on the couch, revisiting a number of different films. He doesn’t dive very deep into talking about them, but he does give his brief thoughts on them. He also discusses some exciting news about some unlikely TV series that are in development, including a new Star Wars series featuring the Rogue One character Cassian Andor, as well as a TV series adaptation of the 1985 Joe Dante film Explorers. This episode wraps up with an in-depth discussion of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, as Hemant continues his exploration of this iconic director’s work. 00:41 – Introduction 4:42 – Explorers TV Series in Development 10:08 – Star Wars Cassian Andor TV Series in Development 15:22 – From the Treadmill & the Couch 15:51 – The Skeleton Key (2005) 18:37 – Interstellar (2014) 20:54 – Event Horizon (1997) 22:09 – Semi-Pro (2008) 24:12 – Push (2009) 28:53 – The Shining (1980) 1:05:05 – Next Week 1:07:55 – Wrap-up Explorers TV Series in Development on SlashFilm Cassian Andor Star Wars TV Series in Development on StarWars.com The Shining: Danny’s Ordeal and the bear costumed man by Rob Ager Follow Hemant on Twitter at @hjnaidu and on Letterboxd Follow The Red 7 Movie Cast Podcast on Twitter at @redsevencast Please subscribe on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, or TuneIn.
