Weekly Blend #301 – Fact or April Fool

Weekly Blend #301 - Fact or April Fool
It’s April Fools’ Day, which means a flood of stories have come out created by other sites in hopes of fooling their readers. We dive through those stories as well as some other unbelievable tales in an effort to sort out the fact and fiction. You can also hear our reviews of Wrath of the Titans and Mirror Mirror, as well as our personal favorite sword and sandal type movies. We also debate... 

Weekly Blend #255 – Shadows at the Window

Normally seeing shadows through the window after viewing noir style films like Blood Simple. and Miller’s Crossing would indicate an overdose of genre. Since three of us saw the same thing, however, we’ll say it wasn’t strictly our imagination. The eerie shadows may interrupt our conversation occasionally, but we still find plenty of time to discuss the Coen brothers, Oscar nominations,... 

PBS Bringing Video Games Live Concert to TV

As you may have noticed, I’m a bit of a video game fan. I don’t get to play as much as I might like, and the games I played as a youth will always be better than the games that are put out today. Unfortunately, those classic games are always getting messed up, whether it’s through new games that “improve” on the original concepts, or horrid movie adaptations that ruin the icons of my youth... 

Weekly Blend #228 – MacGru Who?

The pittance that MacGruber made at the box office shows that the SNL skit wasn’t quite read for a feature film. We provide our review of the movie, as well as discuss how blah the summer has been so far, the latest Avatar scandal, celebrities who can’t keep their mouths shut, Walter Matthau’s Kotch, the end of a television era as well as a few of the changes coming in the fall, and... 

The (Really) Delayed Lost: What Kate Does

As mentioned on the podcast, Rafe’s move away from satellite television and to “peasant TV” has cost him ABC. Each week he’ll give a review/response to the latest episode of Lost as the series wraps up its final season, but that response will be a bit delayed (a lot delayed) since he doesn’t get to see it the night it airs. Be warned, however, that these looks will be spoiler-filled up to... 

Jeff’s Five & Dime: Special Super Bowl Commercial Episode

If there is one thing both guys and girls are doing this post-Super Bowl week, it’s talking commercials. The advertisements have reached the level equaling the importance of the actual game itself. Being the resident “jock” of the staff here at Wide Screen Warrior, I could easily dissect the game and tell you how the Saints won it or how Payton Manning blew his shot at a second ring. However,... 

The Delayed LOST: LA X Parts 1 & 2

As mentioned on the podcast, Rafe’s move away from satellite television and to “peasant TV” has cost him ABC. Each week he’ll give a review/response to the latest episode of Lost as the series wraps up its final season, but that response will be a bit delayed since he doesn’t get to see it the night it airs. Be warned, however, that these looks will be spoiler-filled up to the latest broadcast... 

Widescreen Warrior Presents: 2009: A Year in Television

First off let me state this is not a “best of” list, for there are too many good shows for me to have time to watch and judge, and there are many shows that I know others really love that I just have no interest in watching. This is also not an all encompassing list, just pretty much a list of shows I (or my fiancé) saw some or all of and what I thought about them. The purpose of this list... 

Why I Won’t Be Watching V Tonight

November is a sweeps month, which means it’s a new opportunity for networks to unveil their next big thing, as well as promote their existing hit shows with special guest star appearances and “very special” storylines, all in the mindset of winning the most viewers and being the network to come out on top. Personally, I’m a big fan of sweeps months, because it keeps all the big television events... 

Olympic Games Cost Lost its Uninterrupted Run

For a couple of years now, Lost fans have had to endure a trade-off. After several seasons of erratic running schedules filled with random repeats and interruptions, the series finally got a reprieve and moved into the realm of an uninterrupted run. Sure, the series doesn’t air until January of each year, but from there it goes straight through without the frustrating schedule we had to endure at...
