Off Correction 01 – Star Trek Beyond

We’re heading into the final frontier and leaving behind the Criterion Collection for the first time. Welcome to Off Correction, a chance for us to enjoy (or loathe) movies currently screening in theaters.

For this inaugural side project, join us as we raise our shields and head Warp Factor 1 into Star Trek Beyond. At least there’s no Khan this time around…


Ep. 25 – Citizen Kane

Some movies are so great that you don’t even need to see them to know the twist! This week we’re cheating once again and headed toward the Criterion Laserdisc collection. Having hit our 25th weekly episode, we wanted to watch a true classic. A story of such epic proportions that no one can possibly deny it’s artistic value for the ages. So join us for what many proclaim to be the best American movie ever captured on film. No, it’s not Spaceballs (though good guess). We’re taking on Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane.

Anyone know where to find a lightly used toboggan? Just asking for a friend.

Ep. 24 – Ghostbusters

Who you gonna call? This week we’re cheating a bit and looking at a movie that Criterion put out on Laserdisc once upon a time. It’s got ghosts, guns, guys, girls and Gozer. And for our part we bring one set of fresh eyes and one pair of rose-colored glasses to a viewing of the 1980s classic, Ghostbusters.

Remember: when someone asks if you’re a god, you say yes!

Ep. 23 – Medium Cool

What is a camera? Is it an un-filtered eye that captures the world? Or is it an insidiously warped lens that shapes the beliefs of the viewer through it’s unnatural gaze?

Eh, a little of column A, a little of column B…

This week we take a look at a powerful film that questions what it means to capture the world through a camera, and we also peer back in time to another moment of political uncertainty. Join us for a quasi-movie quasi-documentary that probes at the boundaries of art and journalism: Medium Cool
