Episode 165 - Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008) The Stinking Pause podcast – bringing you classic movie reviews since 2013 Incredibly…it’s our first James Bond 007 movie review in nearly ten years of the podcast., So we thought….let’s review two – and there is something of a method in our madness here as we take a look at: Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008) James Bond (Daniel Craig) goes on his first mission as a 00. Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) is a banker to the world's terrorists. He is participating in a poker game at Montenegro, where he must win back his money, in order to stay safe amongst the terrorist market. The boss of MI6, known simply as "M" (Dame Judi Dench) sends Bond, along with Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) to attend this game and prevent Le Chiffre from winning. Bond, using help from Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), Rene Mathis (Giancarlo Giannini), and having Vesper pose as his partner, enters the most important poker game in his already dangerous career. But if Bond defeats Le Chiffre, will he and Vesper Lynd remain safe? …and Is there solace in revenge? James Bond (Daniel Craig) and M (Dame Judi Dench) sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on M, all roads lead to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for helping a strongman stage a coup there. The C.I.A. looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. M wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him. Can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale? “When someone says "We've got people everywhere", you expect it to be hyperbole! Lots of people say that. Florists use that expression. It doesn't mean that they've got somebody working for them inside the bloody room!

Episode 163 - All That Jazz (1979) The Stinking Pause podcast – bringing you classic movie reviews since 2013 This episode, recorded on the eve of the Euro 2020 (21?) final, finally sees the light of day as Scott, Paul and Charlie get together and chat about Bob Fosse, Roy Scheider and All That Jazz from 1979.  Joe Gideon is a Broadway director, choreographer and filmmaker, he in the process of casting the chorus and staging the dance numbers for his latest Broadway show, starring his ex-wife Audrey Paris in what is largely a vanity project for her in playing a role several years younger than her real age, and editing a film he directed on the life of stand-up comic Davis Newman. Joe's professional and personal lives are intertwined, he a chronic philanderer, having slept with and had relationships with a series of dancers in his shows, Victoria Porter, who he hired for the current show despite she not being the best dancer, in the former category, and Kate Jagger, his current girlfriend, in the latter category. That philandering has led to relationship problems, with Audrey during their marriage, and potentially now with Kate who wants a committed relationship with Joe largely in not wanting the alternative of entering the dating world again. Joe also lives a hard and fast life, he chain smoking, drinking heavily, listening to hard driving classical music and popping uppers to keep going. In addition to pressures from investors and meeting film deadlines above and beyond his own self-induced hard life, he is teetering on the brink physically and emotionally. With Kate, Audrey, and his and Audrey's teenage daughter Michelle looking over him as best they can, Joe flirts with "Angelique" in the process, he potentially succumbing to her if he doesn't listen to them or what his body is telling him.   “It's showtime, folks!"   This and previous episodes can be found on; Apple Podcasts Podchaser Stitcher Spreaker Player FM Acast IHeartRadio Libsyn Podcast Party Follow us on Twitter @StinkingPause email: thestinkingpause@gmail.com Thanks for listening Scott, Paul and Charlie

Episode 161 - The Departed (2006) Join Scott, Paul and Charlie this week for some Oscar winning Scorcese action. The Departed (2006) The Departed is a 2006 American crime-thriller film and remake of the 2002 Hong Kong crime thriller Infernal Affairs. The Departed was directed by Martin Scorsese, written by William Monahan, produced by Graham King, Brad Pitt, and Brad Grey, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, and Alec Baldwin. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards at the 79th Academy Awards of which it won four; Best Picture for Graham King, Best Director for Martin Scorsese, Best Adapted Screenplay for William Monahan and Best Film Editing for Thelma Schoonmaker. It was the first Best Director win for Scorsese. Mark Wahlberg was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor (he lost to Alan Arkin for Little Miss Sunshine) In Boston, Massachusetts, notorious Irish Mob boss Francis "Frank" Costello (Jack Nicholson) takes neighbourhood boy Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon) under his wing, and grooms him to be his informant within the Massachusetts State Police. Colin rises through the rank and file to get himself placed on an investigation unit that is working to bring down Costello. Meanwhile, William "Billy" Costigan, Jr. (Leonardo DiCaprio) is seeking to become a cop, despite the fact that he comes from a family that has a very disreputable past and numerous ties to organized crime. His interviewers eventually decide, when Billy refuses to be intimidated out of dropping out of the academy, to arrange for him to go to prison on a trumped-up assault charge, giving him a criminal record and street cred so that he can infiltrate Costello's crew. When both sides of the law realize the situation, both Colin and Billy attempt to discover the other mole's true identity before being found out.     "When I was your age they would say we can become cops, or criminals. Today, what I'm saying to you is this: when you're facing a loaded gun, what's the difference?"

Well, this thing could park a coupla hundred warheads off Washington and New York and no one would know anything about it till it was all over."

Episode 159 - Tommy (1975) Brace yourself...it's time for a tale of platform boots, perverted uncles and pinball….teens, beans and Acid Queens. Ladies and gentlemen, the Stinking Pause podcast is proud to present some very  mixed opinions on Ken Russell's vision of the classic rock opera, Tommy. Nora Walker is told that her British fighter-pilot husband is missing in action and presumed killed in World War II. On V.E. Day, Nora gives birth to their son and names him Tommy. When Tommy is an adolescent, Nora marries shifty camp-counsellor Frank; shortly thereafter, Tommy suffers an emotionally traumatic experience associated with his father and stepfather which, based on things told to him at that time, results in him becoming deaf, mute, and blind, and several people exploit this situation for their own pleasure. As Nora tries several things to bring Tommy out of his psychosomatic disabilities, he, now a young man, discovers pinball. Playing by intuition he becomes a pinball master, which makes him--and Nora and Frank by association--rich and famous. Nora literally shatters Tommy to his awakening, which ultimately leads to both the family's rise and downfall as people initially try to emulate Tommy's path then rebel against it. “I often wonder what he is feeling! Has he ever heard a word I've said? Look at him in the mirror dreaming! What is happening in his head?."   This and previous episodes can be found on; Apple Podcasts Podchaser Stitcher Spreaker Player FM Acast IHeartRadio Libsyn Podcast Party Follow us on Twitter @StinkingPause email: thestinkingpause@gmail.com Thanks for listening Scott, Paul and Charlie #tommy #thewho #kenrussell #stinkingpause #podcast
Episode 158 - The Last Waltz (1978) Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott, who this week is joined by Paul and Charlie to chat about turkey dinners, Van Morrison’s amazing resemblance to Rick Flair and Neil Young’s airbrushed coke booger. As lockdown restrictions ease, hopefully this will be our final episode recorded over Skype as, quite frankly, the sound quality is definitely not up to scratch with several drop outs along the way. For this we can only apologise, but rest assured, things sound a little better further in as we review Martin Scorcese’s The Last Waltz from 1978. Apologies also to Ken Bruce and the legendary Popmaster quiz as we desperately try to recreate this national institution…with, shall we say, mixed results? Seventeen years after joining forces as the backing band for rockabilly cult hero Ronnie Hawkins, Canadian roots rockers The Band call it quits with a lavish farewell show at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom on Nov. 25, 1976. Filmed by Martin Scorsese, this documentary features standout performances by rock legends such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell and Muddy Waters, as well as interviews tracing the group's history and discussing road life. “He called me up, and I said, "Sure I'd like a job. What does it mean? What do I do?" And he said, "Well, son, you won't make much money, but you'll get more pussy than Frank Sinatra."   This and previous episodes can be found on; Apple Podcasts Podchaser Stitcher Spreaker Player FM Acast IHeartRadio Libsyn Podcast Party Follow us on Twitter @StinkingPause email: thestinkingpause@gmail.com Thanks for listening Scott, Paul and Charlie
