Weekly Blend #333 – Summer Catch Up Time

Weekly Blend #333 - Summer Catch Up Time
We’ve been away for a while so it’s time to catch up on the best and worst of the summer crop of movies so far. If we were on top of things this might have only been a clip show, collecting together reviews, but instead you get to listen as Thomas and Rafe start with this week’s new releases, Man of Steel and This is the End and work backwards through the past few weeks, including... 

Weekly Blend #294 – And the Nominees Are…

Weekly Blend #294 - And the Nominees Are...
The big news this week was the announcement of the Oscar nominations, which Rafe and Tim take an in-depth look at over the course of this episode. We also review a few Oscar contenders (The Artist and Bridesmaids) and one movie that should have been a contender (50/50) as we continue catching up on the missed movies of 2011. Add in a little bit of television talk (good-bye Chuck) and a discussion... 

50/50 [DVD Review]

50/50 [DVD Review]
As much as the trailer for 50/50 looked interesting, I was wary about watching Seth Rogen do another movie where he plays friend to someone who is dying of some disease. After all, we already saw him do that for Judd Apatow in Funny People and, well, it wasn’t that funny. The fact that 50/50 is produced by Rogen and is based on the story of his own friend wasn’t enough to convince me and so I wound... 

Rafe’s Top Ten Movies of 2011

Rafe's Top Ten Movies of 2011
For the first time in all of my years of doing this, I’m not incredibly thrilled with my end of the year list. As usual, there are movies appearing on other people’s lists that I haven’t gotten to see, and unfortunate timing means I won’t be seeing them for another couple of weeks at the best. Rather than hold out on my “Best of” list for 2011 until the point that... 

50/50 [Review]

50/50 is a laugh-out-loud comedy one moment, and an eye wiping drama the next. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Adam, a twenty-something who is unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare spinal cancer. His best friend Kyle (Seth Rogen) is on hand to try to make sure Adam survives this event with a smile, and hopefully get laid in the process. Adam is a resilient fellow who tries his best to power through... 

Kung Fu Panda 2 3D [Review]

Kung Fu Panda 2 3D is everything needed from the sequel to the hit animated original from 2008. It’s fasted-paced, delightful, action-packed and full of heart. Jack Black is back as Po and he brings his best voice acting effort yet with a well-rounded, fully developed, emotional characterization that surpasses the first film – more confident, but yet just as insecure. Gary Oldman steps in to... 

Kung Fu Panda 2 [Review]

I find it interesting that Kung Fu Panda 2 has been released the same weekend as The Hangover Part II. Between the two films, there is an incredibly different approach to creating a sequel. The Hangover Part II takes the stance of recreating what worked well in the first place, nearly note for note. Kung Fu Panda 2, on the other hand, figures out where the story would go next and gives the audience... 

Paul [Review]

A long time ago, in a comic book convention far, far away…after attending the San Diego Comic Con, two British sci-fi fans, Graeme Willy (Simon Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Nick Frost) tour the southwest American landscape in a rented RV following a trail of alien-encounter hot spots: Black Mailbox, Area 51, Roswell. Along the way they encounter an actual alien named Paul (Seth Rogan) who is on... 

Weekly Blend #253 – You Know, For Kids

There’s a lot of like in this week’s show. We make up for last week’s special episode by devoting a large portion to the show’s discussion to our Artist of the Month: the Coen Brothers. Hear us discuss O Brother, Where Art Thou?, A Serious Man, The Hudsucker Proxy, and Barton Fink, one of which may be one of Rafe’s all-time favorite movies, and another of which is our... 

The Green Hornet

I think it’s fair to think that nobody has had super-high expectations of The Green Hornet. First of all, it’s not like the character is Batman, although the two did cross paths in the super-silly Adam West days of playing the caped crusader. Secondly, Seth Rogen’s name precludes the movie from taking too serious an approach to the pulp-hero, both as writer and as lead actor. Rogen may have shed...
