The Lone Ranger [Review]

The Lone Ranger [Review]
There’s a moment early on in The Lone Ranger where Tonto is transporting the nearly-deceased John Reid (the man who will become the titular hero) through the desert, dragged on a litter behind the horse Silver. The audience has already seen several examples of Silver’s mystical “spirit horse” powers, but in this particular moment, Silver pauses to expel the contents of his... 

Weekly Blend #335 – When Was the Last Good Western?

Weekly Blend #335 - When Was the Last Good Western?
It’s the best and worst of summer, all in one week’s show. No, it’s not some sort of summer recap – we have far too much of the cinematic season to go – but thanks to Guillermo del Toro and Gore Verbinski, we have examples of the best and worst this summer has put out. Hear Thomas and Rafe offer up their reviews of The Lone Ranger and Pacific Rim, as well as Thomas’s...

Weekly Blend #332 - Fervent Fanbases, Old Sport
It’s Gatsby time! The latest adaptation of the classic novel comes from Baz Luhrmann, a divisive name in entertainment, who Rafe is predisposed to dislike. So how does he wind up giving Gatsby, and what issues does Thomas take with the adaptation? Have a listen to find out. We also discuss Disney’s plans for adapting Into the Woods (or, as we call it, the next Johnny Depp weirdness project),... 

Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition

Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition
I’ve been trying to get this rebooted column kicked off for a while now and this year’s football extravaganza has finally given me the motivation to do so. So welcome to the new trailer park, where we gather the latest trailers and commercials to hit the web and give you our opinions on how interested we are in the movies they promote – in other words, how well the trailers do their... 

Weekly Blend #304 – Sail Into Shadow

Weekly Blend #304 - Sail Into Shadow
Dark Shadows are here again. First came the campy, classic television show, then a ’90s remake. Now we get to see Tim Burton and Johnny Depp take on the franchise. Of course, it still has the might of The Avengers to contend with. We offer a review of Dark Shadows and our take on The Avengers continual success before moving into the realm of television and discussing which shows are making... 

Dark Shadows [Review]

Dark Shadows [Review]
Dark Shadows is an uneven horror comedy that is neither scary nor entirely funny but manages to be entertaining despite its many flaws. Frequent collaborators, Tim Burton and Johnny Depp reunite once again to bring Dan Curtis’ cult soap opera “Dark Shadows” (1966-1971) and its lead character Barnabas Collins to the big screen. Seth Grahame-Smith, the writer of “Pride and Prejudice... 

Weekly Blend #302 – Summer Season Assemble!

Weekly Blend #302 - Summer Season Assemble!
We’re back after a few weeks’ absence. With our return we talk about The Raven and The Cabin in the Woods, one of which is the most awesome movie several of us have seen in theaters in quite a while (hint: it doesn’t have John Cusack in it). After our reviews we start laying out the summer with a thumbs up/thumbs down for the upcoming potential blockbusters. What are we most interested... 

Weekly Blend #300 – The More Things Change

Weekly Blend #300 - The More Things Change
It feels like only yesterday that we moved out on our own, set up WidescreenWarrior.com, and shortly thereafter celebrated our 200th episode. Now it’s 100 episodes later… but the more things change, the more they stay the same. We deal with the technical troubles of adding a few more seats as we gather together the current iteration of the show along with the Queen of the Podcast to talk... 

21 Jump Street [Review]

21 Jump Street [Review]
In this comedic remake of the popular 1980s show of the same name, former high school nerd Morton Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and former jock bully Greg Jenko (Channing Tatum) have just graduated from the police academy and are prepared for badass excitement. Unfortunately, after a failed arrest attempt while on park duty, the two are assigned to an undercover job at the titular address where Captain Dickson... 

Trailer Park: Dark Shadows

Trailer Park: Dark Shadows
I wasn’t a big fan of the original Dark Shadows, which precedes me by a few years. In fact, I wasn’t even aware of the soapy show until the series saw a reboot in the ‘80s with Ben Cross in the lead role of Barnabas Collins, the cursed vampire ancestor of the Collins household at the center of the series. That reboot kept a very serious tone despite the low-budget origins of the original series....
