Podcast: Goldeneye / The Way Back – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, Ryan and Jay continue their discussion on Bond and the latest from Gavin O Conner. It’s another fascinating pair of movies on Extra Film.
The guys shift from the Dalton era to the Pierce Brosnan as 007. For many of our listeners, and Ryan as well, Brosnan was the first Bond they got the chance to see on the big screen. Goldeneye is also considered to be the best Bond film Brosnan ever did, so it was interesting to hear the guys go a different way with their opinions. While there are many complaints about the film’s quality, they do also get into talking about the video game spawned from Goldeneye. It led to a pretty balanced discussion and one we think you will enjoy.
Then, the discussion moves to The Way Back, starring Ben Affleck. Gavin O Conner has tackled the subject of sports movies before but none with this much of a personal story behind it. With Affleck’s own personal battles, they collaborate to bring this story to the big screen. While the film doesn’t work overall, the boys are still able to admire Affleck’s performance as one of the best of the year so far.
