We're just not quite ready to let Harrison Ford go yet, so we move seamlessly from Clear and Present Danger to Air Force One, a roughly contemporaneous movie that could fit very neatly into the Jack Ryan universe, as canonically Jack does become President of the United States, in part for his actions during Clear and Present Danger. I hate knowing so much about these fuckin films. A barely-concealed reaction to the Yugoslavian War, and in particular the Bosnian Genocide, this movie shows the president making a speech in which he promises the US will involve itself at the first sign of humanitarian crisis, rather than waiting for international consensus. This prompts a group of communist revanchists (Led by Gary Oldman) to invade and take control of Air Force One, the president's private plane.

Second Breakfast with Cam & Maggie

For the final episode of Summerween 2022, we're going back 100 years to examine a horror classic. We discuss the charming imperfections of scrappy 1920s production, coupled with the problems of unauthorized adaptation. It turns out this film exists in multiple versions – and we dig deeper into the implications and lasting effects of centuries-long games of artistic telephone. Speaking of adaption – Bram Stoker's novel is not an easy one to adapt, and Nosferatu is no exception. Other versions of this story creep into our discussion, including Bela Lugosi (1931), Gary Oldman (1992), plus a few other horror staples (hello Michael Myers). More than anything, this film's iconic character design of Count Orlok, combined with the striking imagery and special effects, still made for a visually stunning and rather unnerving viewing experience. We hope you've enjoyed this year's Summerween series! We'll definitely be back again next year.   SUBSTACK: https://secondbreakfastpod.substack.com/ Feedback & Theories: secondbreakfastpod@gmail.com Instagram & TikTok: @secondbreakfastpod Cam's Twitter: https://twitter.com/camfucile

This week on Fabulous Film & Friends it's round four of the seemingly endless Coppola v. Scorsese Film Battle, where we shift gears downward with two problematic, others might say misunderstood, passion projects in both maestros' respective canons, as we compare Martin Scorsese's 1988 semi-Biblical epic  The Last Temptation of Christ, starring Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Barbara Hershey, Barry Miller,  Andre Gregory, Irvin Kershner and David Bowie to Francis Ford Coppola's take on Bram Stoker's Dracula, released in 1992 and starring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves, Cary Elwes, Richard E. Grant, Bill Campbell and Tom Waits. Joining me in this epic clash of blood, life, death and resurrection are my sister Roseanne Caputi, actor, photographer, and erstwhile cycle-jockey, Gordon Alex Robertson and celebrated author, producer and everyone's favorite gadfly George Young who has just announced that his Vampire-themed novel DracuLAND is due to hit the store shelves Halloween of 2022.  With so much ground to cover here are two brief synopses:The Last Temptation of Christ reimagines the life and impact of Jesus Christ through the lens of an unwilling, doubtful, mood swinging, weakling who has less sense of purpose than your average over-priced New York Plumber. And with all the Brooklyn accents in the film, you'd think the plumbers' union delegation took a wrong turn at Poughkeepsi and ended up in The Holy Land.  Meanwhile Bram Stoker's Dracula breaks up the legendary novel about the infamous  Blood-sucking Count Dracula  into three distinct, competing and non-complimentary films: 1) a not so erotic tale of swooning eroticism and temptation, 2) a keystone cops movie starring four bland and bumbling supporting actors who look and act exactly alike, save the one who sounds like he stepped off of a surfer turned bank robbers film and  3) a glib action movie starring an entertaining, beef-eating German vampire hunter)  Are these misunderstood gems or just flat out turkeys?Find out!

Thanks for asking me. Jenny Wheeler: We're going to be focusing first on Canticle Creek, which is your most recent page turning mystery. I loved it. I must say it was quite a discovery for me. It's a page turner, as I emphasize, a really strongly, motivated narrative mystery, but it's got the sense also of an awareness of landscape and the creative process, which is sometimes more credited to literary fiction. In short, it does an excellent job of being a great page turner with a literary edge. And I wondered, is that a tension that you consciously feel as you're writing or is it just more something that comes to you naturally? Adrian Hyland: Hmm. I'd say it's one of the demands of the craft. I mean, for me, it what I like most about language, the thing that I appreciate is it's beauty. And if something isn't well written, so it comes across as a cliche or flat? Well, the book loses me, so yes, I try and balance both of those things, I think. Whether I succeed in either, as I was saying, I'm somewhere between the popular and the literary, I think, and maybe I fall between those two stools. But try to honor both of them, I think. I mean, I love both. I like reading, I love reading poetry and all sorts of things, but I also love reading. You know, all sorts of crime novelists, that they're all important to me.

He discusses everything from his first acting job on the TNT show “Perception” to his appendix bursting on the set of “Grey's Anatomy”. He tells Brett all about booking the role of Reese Witherspoon & Ryan Phillippe's love child on the “Cruel Intentions” pilot for NBC and then starring on the second season of the Emmy-winning anthology series “American Crime”. Next, Taylor talks about his first starring role in the movie “Wolves” and the method acting of his co-star Michael Shannon who played his father.

There might not be a better accomplishment than to make a movie that has cynics like us want to stand up and chant "USA, USA!" Wolfgang Petersen's Air Force One does just that. Harrison Ford's dogged toughness and his humanity as perhaps the most-popular president in film history is the key here, but the rest of the large cast (especially Gary Oldman as a Russian terrorist) is pretty great too. There are also surprisingly timely echoes of many recent real-life events. In fact, here's a warning for those who don't want to hear us rip on a certain golf-obsessed Floridian: skip ahead a few minutes at the 13-minute mark. But this movie doesn't even need any of these shreds of verisimilitude. It's just a wonderfully entertaining thriller that makes you want to go back to the beginning and watch it again! We also opened up the comment bag at the end of this 449th Ellises' Analysis, which brought about a pretty big announcement.
