Resident Evil: Retribution 3D [Review]
The opening of Resident Evil: Retribution has everything backwards. No, literally, for the opening title sequence, writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson presents the events in reverse and in slow motion and in glorious 3D. It is a bizarrely beautiful sequence to watch, reducing the narrative to a series of inventive and... 
Weekly Blend #316 - Fall TV Preview
While it may take us a while to get to the topic at hand (we do have movies to talk about, after all), the focus of this week’s episode is on the new television series. What shows have us excited and which ones are we anticipating to bomb? What shows are wrapping up that we’ll miss and which are we ready... 
Breaking Bad Recap: Gliding Over All [Recap and Review]
As the summer comes to a close, so does Breaking Bad Season 5, Part 1 with its final episode of 2012 “Gliding Over All”. The episode starts in the offices of Vamanos Pest Control, just as Todd (Jesse Plemons) is walking in. He eventually finds Walt (Bryan Cranston) sitting in the unlit offices searching by him.... 
Weekly Blend #315 - Owen Nails the Punchline
Right before we started recording this week’s podcast, Owen made us aware of just how clueless he is about technological developments. The result is a riotous 60-minutes where Owen is the punchline, but the last laugh is on us. Mixed in this week we talk about Lawless, when good actors star in bad movies, Breaking... 
The Possession [Review]
The Possession is a solid horror film that lacks the ambition to be anything beyond what it has to be. Its reluctance to challenge itself and the exorcism genre makes the film feel somewhat lazy. The Possession is a riff on themes made popular by The Exorcist where a spirit or demon is trying to take possession of... 
Breaking Bad Recap: Say My Name [Recap and Review]
Breaking Bad is starting to wind down this week with its penultimate episode of the year entitled “Say My Name.” Unlike usual Breaking Bad episodes, the purpose behind the title becomes quite evident from the cold opening. Following directly from the ending of last week’s “Buyout”, Walt (Bryan Cranston),... 
The Apparition [Review]
The Apparition is dreadful, dull and plodding. It is never scary, funny, insightful or entertaining. It is a complete misfire. At its core, writer/director Todd Lincoln seems to have a germ of an interesting idea, but the film loses touch with that idea as quickly as it introduces it. In a college science experiment,... 
Paranorman [Review]
Paranorman is an exceptional, gorgeous stop motion marvel. It’s pure, innocent, magical beauty easily whisks away its audience to a vision of splendor. It’s a fantastic film on most every level, from the characters, to the color, the story, the themes and even the 3D. It is a film that will easily find... 
Weekly Blend #314 - Full House of Grunge
We’re back from another little break with a lot of grumbling and a lot of laughter. Hear multiple reviews of The Campaign and The Bourne Legacy, tributes to Jerry Nelson and Tony Scott, updates on the lives of the Widescreen Warrior crew (including Rafe’s “brain cloud”) and an awesome look at... 
Breaking Bad - Buyout [Recap and Review]
Breaking Bad presses on with the first half of his 5th season this week with “Buyout.” The episode starts out with the direct results from last week’s cliffhanger, showing Walt (Bryan Cranston), Jesse (Aaron Paul), Mike (Jonathan Banks), and Todd (Jesse Plemons) disposing of the evidence from their...
