REVIEW – A Weekend of Brains and Brawn

REVIEW_GRAPHIC

Lucy and Hercules Sittin’ In A Tree

This week, Katey and Patches amplify their own brain capacity by bringing Buzzfeed Film Critic Alison Willmore to discuss Lucy, the Scarlett Johansson-led pseudo-science action picture from writer-director-producer Luc Besson. It’s a little bit Taken, a little bit 2001, and reactions are all over the spectrum. From there, Katey and Alison segue from strong woman to strong man for a look at Hercules, starring the definition of muscle-laden: The Rock. Is it a gift from the action gods or a painstaking labor? All that and your answers to this week’s Brett Ratner-themed lightning question, on this week’s review episode.

32 – Joke Rock: Weird Al or Dwayne Johnson?

EPISODE_GRAPHIC

Can you smell what this podcast is cooking?

This week, Patches wants to talk Joke Rock of a few different stripes. First, he pitches a conversation on Weird Al’s Mandatory Fun album to David, Da7e and Katey, then in segment 3 the group tries to decide if love for The Rock on screen is ultimately an ironic love. That plus a Family Feud segment that surprisingly features the least amount of feuding on the show and a Lightning Round question for reluctant Brett Ratner fans.

REVIEW – ManBoyhood

REVIEW_GRAPHIC

Plus We FIRE+RESCUE and PURGE some I ORIGINS

This week, David and Patches reminisce over the past, that time a few short weeks ago when they saw Boyhood. Director Richard Linklater’s film is causing a stir for its inventive structure, filming its characters one week at a time for over 12 years. But the film doesn’t call attention to its mythologized narrative — for three-hours, the coming-of-age film rolls along, rambling from conceived beat to conceived beat. Is it a great film? The answer to that, plus micro-reviews of Planes 2, The Purge, and I Origins, on this week’s review episode.

31 – Score Purge: Blockbuster Aural Anarchy

EPISODE_GRAPHIC

Class Warfare For Your Eyes and Ears

This week, Katey is in Los Angeles, so  David, Da7e and Patches take the week to talk about class warfare on screen though mini-reviewing The Purge: Anarchy, recommend a movie that went underseen this year, then dive into the future of blockbuster movie scores, which all 3 agree are usually bland. All that plus a Lighting Round question about horrible titles that were attached to otherwise good movies.
