For our final episode of the season, we look back to the early works of a celebrated director and ask ourselves the question … How in the hell did he go from that to classics like Starman and The Thing?! Show notes and links: Dark Star (1974) – IMDb (imdb.com) Honest Trailers – Paranormal Activity (youtube.com) Something Is Incredibly Wrong Here… |…
 
Roy Neary, an electric lineman, watches how his quiet and ordinary daily life turns upside down after a close encounter with a UFO. Meanwhile, Breki, Nancy and Linnea watch him watching it all. It gets very meta once you consider that you’re listening to what we thought about watching the man watching his life turning upside down. Show notes and li…
 
Sorry for the delay here! There was a hick-up in the publication process that made everything look like it was published, but it just didn’t appear on the site or in the feeds. We’ve found and fixed the problem, though, so this shouldn’t keep happening. Edit: And if that wasn’t enough, turns out the audio file was broken all along. >.< … Fixed vers…

This week, we check out that lovely little 90s comedy called Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. There are plenty of lies in that previous sentence, as the movie is neither lovely, little nor a comedy.

In another case of “Huh, I thought we’d done that movie already…”, we bring you the movie which you always forget drops the ‘g’; Singin’ In the Rain. After watchin’ it, we started talkin’ about it and discussin’ some of the details. Did we like it? You’ll know all there is to know after downloadin’ the episode!…
 
Another week, another headache. Isn’t that how the expression goes? No? Another week, another bug-infested hell-hole for us to crawl out of? No? Dang it; I’m supposed to know this one. Another week, another florg driddy fnoop dardidae laminosa. … Okay, now I’m either having a stroke or reliving a past life. Is this thing even on? Show notes and lin…
 
Before we had the Iron Giant, Iron Will or Iron Man, we had another Iron hero to look up to.

Woo-Ping Yuen – IMDb (imdb.com) The Director. An Interview w…
 
Now, this episode might be about the week that started on April first, but we make not a single reference to April Fools or the jokes told by the Internet At Large on said day. Instead, it’s all about Apple, Body Parts, Garfield Phones and Human Engineering. Also, … COME ON! Show notes and links: Should I stand or walk for an efficient ride? (theco…
 
Don’t you just hate it when you record a perfectly good episode of a podcast, edit it, and then go out for a walk with your dogs while it exports to MP3, only to return and foget all about it for the next five days? … What, that’s never happened to you? Oh. Well, it happened to me, hence this episode being released on a Sunday rather than a Wednesd…
 
“It’s been a while”, he said, remembering how often in the past he had spoken those very same words. “I come bearing news. News of the geeky variety. News to astonish and amuse; words to educate and entertain.” The words sounded hollow in his ears and he hoped nobody would hear the falseness in his tone. He was neither educational nor entertaining.…
 
A movie so good it’s been made five times. We’ve watched the fourth, perhaps the most popular of the versions, and we have opinions. What are those opinions? Well, why don’t you listen to the show instead of me telling you? I mean, … I don’t want there to be any spoilers in the description… Eh? Eh? See, it’s funny, because the movie’s … the title o…
 
With a title like The Girl in the Fireplace a “double-the title”, we figured this episode could be about anything, so long as there was a girl in a fireplace at some point. What we found was that this episode was just about the best we’ve seen in a long long time. Show notes and links: “Doctor Who” The Girl in the Fireplace (TV Episode 2006) (imdb.…
 
In July of 1980, Roger Ebert felt he had seen enough movies to qualify his review for The Blue Lagoon by stating that “”The Blue Lagoon is the dumbest movie of the year”, and in this week’s episode, the gang find it quite hard to argue against that assessment – and to his observation that, quote, “every third shot in this movie seems to be showing …
 
Most Disney movies try to teach us something – an important life lesson, as it were. Sometimes it’s quite surface-level, sometimes it’s profound and intelligent. In this week’s movie, we learn that it’s important to have lofty ambitions and avenge your father’s death by performing the death-defying stunt that he died trying to perform. … Sorry, let…

It seems every episode begins with an excuse for why we’re late, so here goes… Sorry about this; I really thought we’d be on time this time around! We had our lineup of stories ready on Saturday, Breki had done his initial read-through on Sunday and was happy with how everything looked, but – come Monday – he started getting a nasty cold and couldn…
 
This week, the gang has a misadventure in the Australian Outback and find themselves walking aimlessly, looking for civilization… Or at least some kind of a plot or subtlety in the message, at least.

We’re late, I know, but like anything good in your life – we’re worth waiting for. Yeah, we’re that confident in ourselves and the quality of our show that we’re going to go out on a limb and say that even when we release an episode almost in time for next week’s episode, you’re still going to enjoy it. … Please don’t tell us we’re wrong about our …

Now, it’s not exactly clear how or why this happened, but a few minutes into the episode, Breki begins to sound like a Dalek. There is no reason to fear, however, since he has not changed species and has no interest in any Dalek-like activity, whether that be EX-TERM-I-NATE or OB-LIT-E-RATE. He doesn’t even want you to EX-PLAIN. … There’s just some…

It doesn’t take a real genius to understand the Value … eerhm … I can’t think of a good way to make a pun using Val Kilmer’s surname. I mean, “The value of killing mermaids” is the closest I get, but that doesn’t work, now, does it? Either way; good movie is good. Enjoy! Show notes and links: How I helped inspire the lead female character. (slate.c…
 
While we can’t boast the same beautiful transition from poo to peep like in last week’s show, we do have several things that speak for the consumption of this auditory geek-themed news programming. Most notably, of course, is that Breki … “Sings”. Kind of. Show notes and links: Massive Collection #1 Breach Exposes 773 Million Emails (gizmodo.com) F…

I say this a lot, but … I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to get to this movie.

Finding a time where all three of us could record was tricky around the Christmas holidays, but we made it work! The movie? The 1947 Christmas classic, Miracle on 34th Street.
