Michael Apted, Director

Posted by on Aug 30, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Podcast, Q & A |

Few directors in Hollywood have had a career with as much variety as Michael Apted. His resume includes critically acclaimed films like “Coal Miner’s Daughter” and “Gorillas In the Mist,” big budget franchise movies from the Bond and Narnia series, and landmark documentaries — his “Up” series, which has for 50 years followed a group of British school children every seven years since they were seven years old. (It’s truly remarkable.)

I had a chance to speak with Apted at length about (among other things) the process of filmmaking, both features and documentaries, what he’s learned from the incredible roster of actors with whom he’s worked over the years, and his new film “Unlocked,” which opens September 1st and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, Orlando Bloom, and John Malkovich.

Are the Lakers Tampering? Plus, Big Trades, and a Statue? Yessir!

Posted by on Aug 25, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

Big news this week… The Lakers are under investigation!

The Indiana Pacers are salty about Paul George’s departure, and believe the Lakers may have had something to do with it. Their midwestern sensibilities ruffled, Indiana demanded the league launch an investigation. We ask the big questions (starting with, “Did they do it?” moving to “Can they prove it?” and finishing with “Should tampering even matter?”). From there, it’s a breakdown of this week’s blockbuster sending Kyrie Irving to Boston. Who got what they needed from this, and how does it impact the Lakers?

Finally, with tampering in the news, we give a statue (sort of) to the guy at the center of the NBA’s last major tampering scandal… Joe Smith! Yes, the same Joe Smith who played 12 games with the Lakers in 2010-11, and averaged a robust 0.5 ppg.

Because in our world, every Laker gets a statue.

Podcast: Schedules, Expectations, Political Athletes, and VH1

Posted by on Aug 18, 2017 in Kamenetzky Brothers Land O'Lakers Podcast, Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

This week…

The Lakers schedule is out. What’s interesting? Start with the national TV schedule, for one. So how does all that air time impact Lonzo Ball’s ROY hopes, and how do Lonzo Ball’s ROY hopes impact the Lakers 2018 plan? From there, we look at D’Angelo Russell’s recent comments about the trade, and a big week for basketball players getting political with Kevin Durant and LeBron James both weighing in on the President.

And from there, we go deep into great teen movies, and celebrate the 20th anniversary of VH1′s “Behind the Music.”

Jason Mitchell on “Detroit,” being Eazy-E, and flying a chopper

Posted by on Jul 27, 2017 in Podcast |

Had a chance this week to speak with Jason Mitchell, who played Eazy-E in “Straight Outta Compton,” and now has a critical role in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit,” which opens in limited release this weekend and wide next Friday. I’ve had a chance to see the film, which centers around three murders at the Algiers Hotel during the unrest in Detroit in 1967. I’d never heard of the Algiers Hotel, and the story is incredibly powerful, and powerfully told.

Worth seeing when you can, and it’s worth listening to Mitchell talk about the experience of making the film, and how his role in “Straight Outta Compton” informed his research.

Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, KCP, 2018, and OJ!

Posted by on Jul 22, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast |

Busy week!

After starting with the shredding of Brian’s remaining street cred (whatever remained), it was on to the breaking news of Kyrie Irving’s trade demand from the Cavs. Where could they send him, and (more importantly for the Lakers) what does this mean for LeBron James and the summer of 2018?

From there, we break down the signing of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and more importantly, the press conference announcing it, because there was a whole heck of a lot going on in there from Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson.

Finally, Derrick Rose, yay-or-nay? And O.J.! He’s getting out. What happens next?
