In our 17th episode from The Soylent Greenscreen Podcast, Darkest-Timeline Justin, Michelle, Regular Justin and Wayne discuss three films about fantasy women and unfulfilled men trying to establish their identities. While these films tell the same story of the inanimate object developing a life beyond the control of the owner/creator they all present unique worlds, differing genres and three men at different stages of their emotional development. 

The first film is the 2007 contemporary comedy-drama Lars and The Real Girl starring Ryan Gosling as Lars and Emily Mortimer as Karin. This was one of the few films that we all gave a similar rating.

Our second film was the 2013 Spike Jonz science-fiction-romantic-drama Her starring Joaquin Pheonix as Theodore and Scarlett Johanssenn as the voice of Samantha.

Our last film and perhaps the most controversial was the 2012 fantasy drama with darker undertones, Ruby Sparks. This film was written by Zoe Kazan who plays Ruby, with Paul Dano as Calvin.

Steve Jobs: Jobs / iSteve / Pirates of Silicon Valley

In this episode Michelle introduces Wayne, Darkest-Timeline Justin and High-Fibre Justin to the life and times of #SteveJobs, #SteveWozniak, #JohnScully, #BillGates and the rest of the guys that defined our marketing and technology inspired culture with #IBM, #Macintosh and The #PepsiChallenge through a discussion of three movies about Steve Jobs. These three films are the recent #AshtonKutcher starring theatrical feature, #Jobs (2013), the first feature length #FunnyOrDie movie #iSteve (2013) starring #JustinLong as Steve Jobs and #JorgeGarcia as Steve Wozniak and lastly, the surprisingly decent tv movie #PiratesOfSiliconValley (1999) starring #NoahWyle as Steve Jobs and #AnthonyMichaelHall as Bill Gates.

Anime: Akira / Ghost in the Shell

 

 

 

In this episode the SGS team discuss two #japanese #anime films of cultural significance that helped define a genre.

The first is #KatsuhiroOtomo's #Akira (1988) in which we uncover how complex the characters of #Kaneda, #Tetsuo, #Kei and #Ryu are, and how culturally significant Akira is,.

In the second half we discuss #MamoruOshii's #GhostInTheShell (1995) where we go further into the rabbit hole through the philosophical conundrum that the film presents. This discussion also includes #AI, the search for the soul and #Ulysses.
