Iron Man 3 [Review]
Iron Man is, please excuse the pun, the steel foundation of Marvel’s Avengers series. If the first film hadn’t done well, they would have had little to build upon to lead into the collective picture. Iron Man 2 went a long way to laying the groundwork for all of the heroes to finally team up, unfortunately to the... 
Stream the Not-So-Jazzy Great Gatsby Soundtrack
As with Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and… well, just about every other picture he’s directed, Baz Luhrman has decided to go in a unique direction with his adaptation of The Great Gatsby. While the film remains in its traditional 1920s era setting, Luhrman’s adaptation makes use of an eclectic... 
Weekly Blend #331 - Iron Man Starts Summer with a Bang
It’s officially the summer movie season and Iron Man definitely starts things off with Grade-A Bang Bang. Thomas and Rafe offering their views on the third picture in the Marvel franchise (or seventh picture if you want to count all of the Avenger tie-ins). From there, it’s a look through the coming summer... 
Weekly Blend #330 - People Be Tired of This Bull@$!*
Yes, the gaps between episodes are growing – something we address in the first few minutes of the show. Hopefully we’ll get that sorted out soon, but otherwise we’ll produce episodes as we can. Don’t worry – we’ll have a big blowout if we ever decide to call it a day (it won’t... 
Weekly Blend #329 - The Life of a Franchise
We’re back and making up for lost time with reviews of The Last Exorcism Part II, Jack the Giant Slayer, and dueling reviews of Oz the Great and Powerful. We also catch up on a couple of movie trailers, with varying opinions on Now You See Me and Iron Man 3. Somehow, regardless of the discussion topic, we... 
Weekly Blend #328 - Oscar Wrap Up 2013
The Oscars are over and now it’s time to deconstruct Hollywood’s biggest night. We analyze quite a few aspects of the show, from the awards themselves to host Seth MacFarlane to the strengths and weaknesses of the “theme” of the evening. We discuss some of the surprise awards of the night (although... 
Argo and the Other 2013 Oscar Winners
Despite the best predictions, the 85th Annual Academy Awards wound up being filled with a bit more tension than most people would have expected. The first upset came early in the evening as Best Animated Picture went a different way than a lot of people expected, and some surprises just kept coming. I know my Twitter... 
Rafe's 2013 Oscar Night Predictions
I probably should have put up my actual Oscar predictions a week ago, but let’s be honest: nobody is using what I say to place any bets in office betting pools. There are certainly a lot better qualified people to use as a basis for gambling, say Nate Silver, for example (whose predictions I still haven’t... 
Thomas' Obligatory Best Films of 2012 List
Oh early spring film releases. The Oscar films have gone wide, the crappy horror/comedy/romantic movies are getting ready to do well for an opening weekend before exiting quickly and the critical community is organizing their obligatory top ten lists. Now, given that this is my first top ten list on an actual site,... 
Thomas' Obligatory Worst Films of 2012 List
I really loved 2012 as an overall year for film. There were so many groundbreaking films in various genres, whether they were the biggest of blockbusters or the smallest of independent productions. Yet, they can’t all be gems. Every year has its stinkers and, while there were a limited amount of them, the ones that...
