RAR is a movie review and entertainment news podcast that is not afraid of spreading spoilers or rumors. We review new films as well as yesterdays soundtracks that still resonate with us. Tune in for what’s hot and what’s not on the silver screen.
This week on the show we tackle a couple of films that are cut from the same cloth. Ken Scott who co-wrote todays films with Martin Petit, bring us the 2011 French-Canadian Film Starbuck and the english language adaptation, Delivery Man. In both films, our protagonist, David Wozniak, played by Patrick Huard and Vince Vaughn respectively, is a wayward soul stumbling through life in all its ups and downs. One day upon returning home to his apartment, David meets a lawyer who informs him that due to a mistake at a sperm clinic he frequented, he has fathered 533 children, 142 of whom wish to know his identity.
Delivery Man is not quite a shot for shot remake, though the two certainly come close. Major differences in the films are mainly in the script with American colloquialisms instead of French Canadian expressions. A few ways of adapting the sarcasm and humor, but all in all, a heartwarming and innovative story.
This week we bring you the final half of our two part Tropes and Trends discussing independent films as well as the “indie” movie genre. Check out the video below to check out a trailer for a truly independent film!
