Weekly Blend #337 – Smurf Off Pretty Boy

Weekly Blend #337 - Smurf Off Pretty Boy
We have a slew of new movies to talk about this week with some interesting discussions stemming from those reviews. We look at The Wolverine and how director James Mangold manages to take a mutant character in a Japan setting and create a more effective western than The Lone Ranger (not that that’s a huge feat). We analyze 2 Guns, which finds its successful action formula held up by good chemistry... 

Much Ado About Nothing [Review]

Much Ado About Nothing [Review]
Unlike many in the geek world, my appreciation for Joss Whedon didn’t come from his hit television shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel. Frankly, I was originally quite dismissive of the silliness I saw in the shows and it wasn’t until halfway through their runs that I finally gave them a chance as anything more than light viewing, eventually learning to appreciate what Whedon... 

Thomas’ Obligatory Best Films of 2012 List

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, I figured that I had to go all out in terms of stockpiling on film consumption for the... 

Weekly Blend #325 – It’s All on Thomas

Weekly Blend #325 - It's All on Thomas
Due to health, weather, and health, it’s been a few weeks since we were able to pull a show together. Through it all, Thomas has been almost relentless in his pursuit of the next episode. Maybe this is part of his bid to take over as prime Widescreen Warrior, or maybe he misses our banter whenever we’re gone. Regardless, with nobody else to join Rafe in the studio, this week’s show... 

Weekly Blend #320 – Everything Comes Back to Joss Whedon

Weekly Blend #320 - Everything Comes Back to Joss Whedon
We’re back with reviews of Lincoln, Skyfall, Wreck-It Ralph, and Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Yet, no matter what we talk about, everything seems to come back to Joss Whedon. What have we been watching lately? Joss Whedon. What do we think about Disney buying Star Wars? Joss Whedon is the support for our stance. What are our thoughts on the Kevin Clash scandal? Okay, maybe that... 

Weekly Blend #315 – Owen Nails the Punchline

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 Bad, and putting the final wraps on this summer’s season, including record... 

What to Expect from an Avengers Sequel

What to Expect from an Avengers Sequel
With a record-breaking $200 million opening weekend, I think we can all agree that there will be a sequel to The Avengers. Even better: most people I know want a sequel to the super hero team-up. It feels germane to the film for there to be a second one, instead of another chapter that is simply tacked on. We have a long road to travel before we get to a second Avengers film, but we can pontificate... 

Weekly Blend #303 – We’ll Sure as Hell Avenge It

Weekly Blend #303 - We'll Sure as Hell Avenge It
Avengers Assemble! Summer is officially here with the first blockbuster of the year and it’s a doozy, breaking records and amazing audiences and critics everywhere. We have four opinions about The Avengers here for you, with different things about the movie we liked and disliked. We also talk about Battleship‘s oversea success before its American release, our Dark Shadows hesitation,... 

The Avengers [Review]

The Avengers [Review]
Ever since the success of Iron Man in 2008, the Marvel Universe movies have been building to a point: The Avengers. With each individual character movie finding massive success, the idea of combining the characters into a team became even more of an enigma: how do you take four characters who have triumphed in their own pictures (as well as two supporting players) and combine them into an ensemble... 

The Avengers 3D [Review]

The Avengers 3D [Review]
Marvel’s The Avengers is extraordinary, a monumental accomplishment of super heroic proportions. Director Joss Whedon has done the impossible, bringing together four independent franchises (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America) into a single cohesive whole. The Avengers is a better film with the heroes together than any single film with the each hero standing alone. It is quite a remarkable...
