On the show, Joe and I talked about Robin Williams passing and the Twitter and Instagram bullying that his daughter Zelda was subject to.

We also added a new subject to the show How Would You Do It?

This weeks How Would You Do It?

A Hellboy TV series.  Would it be done live action?  How long per episode?  Where should it be shown, on TV, Web, HBO or Showtime?

Let's Be Cops takes the simple approach and excels at its situational comedy. Not a great story by any means but, the two leads played by New Girl costars, Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans, jr., make the film work off of their chemistry and comedic timing. They have an Odd Couple dynamic. Johnson as the over the top wild man, and Wayans, jr. as the straight man. Every situation that they get into has consistent hilarity. Now, there's nothing really original to any aspect of the story but, seeing these two on the big screen together for the first time, felt fresh. This film has the charisma and execution where the similar cop comedy, Ride Along, failed to deliver. The supporting cast has some funny moments as well. Jon Lajoie (The League) and Natasha Leggero (Reno 911) have bit parts as a jerk off boss and a nympho with a taste for ecstasy and lollipops. As funny as they were though, they couldn't match the ferocity of Cuban/Dominican/Puerto Rican/idk character, Pupa, played by Keegan-Michael Key (Mad TV). Every facial expression and line of dialogue from him is "laugh til you cry" hilarious. Rob Riggle (21 & 22 Jump Street) plays a subdued role this time around, and it's a good thing. His loud, wacky, shtick, has worn a bit thin lately. James D'Arcy (Cloud Atlas) as the main villain, is a scarily good baddie but, his intensity would have been better served in a more serious film. The only really wasted role of the film comes from Andy Garcia (Smokin Aces). He plays the same old, dead faced, low talker, that he always seems to do lately.

I can give you three big reasons why the Turtles are still on the wrong track: Nickelodeon Movies, Director Jonathan Liebsman (Wrath of the Titans), and (shocker) Producer Michael Bay. Now I realize that I've been hammering on Bay a lot this Summer but, there's a reason for it, and the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film proves it. The best example is that good scriptwriting gets replaced by a poorly written story that only a child wouldn't notice, with characters that are boring and wasted (The Fantastic Four films come to mind). Speaking of boring characters, how's about Megan Fox as April O'Neil? Brunette (instead of the classic auburn hair color, hence the Irish name, O'NEIL!!!) and with acting abilities that only Keanu Reeves would envy. Oh, that's right, she's in this movie for the eye candy factor that Bay puts into his films nine times out of ten over substance. Don't even get me started about the appearance of The Shredder. Barely any dialogue for him and he's thrown into a Transformers style robotic suit that looks like a rip off of the cinematic Silver Samurai (The Wolverine). Side characters played by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg and Will Arnett (Blades of Glory) are ok but have nothing to chew on. One of my favorite actors, William Fichtner (Drive Angry), plays a minor villain with odd motivations.

After seeing both Planes films in the span of five hours, I have to say that they weren't anywhere near as bad as I had hoped thought. While the first film was the run-of-the-mill, "little engine that could" tale, Fire & Rescue is better on both story and substance. What makes this movie a superior sequel, is that the direction the story goes to isn't your basic second adventure. Instead of just another race against a bigger and badder opponent, the hero gets hit with a life altering event and decides to help people. The messages about teamwork and second chances aren't overplayed. One of the coolest things about the subject matter, is that the filmmakers actually did their research. They spent nearly a year, learning about fire fighting procedures with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, and also the United States Forestry Service. That research shows so well in the story and in the visuals, that it makes up for most of the film's shortcomings.

Guardians of the Galaxy, restores my faith in what's still possible with motion pictures. This risky venture that could have been a serious setback for Marvel is paying off big time. I mean most people (myself included) that don't eat and sleep comic books, didn't even know who the hell these guys were. But just like the ingenious line of trailers that preceded this film, this movie brings a level of fun back to movie watching. The movie is so good that I can only think of piddly things to complain about. Writer/director James Gunn (Slither, Super) has crafted a story that stands on its own, even while being connected to the Avengers universe. Starting off with a touching origin tale for the lead character, Star Lord/Peter Quill, and complimented by an awesome 70s classic rock soundtrack (even songs I normally don't care for fit perfectly), Gunn shows how much he's invested in this. After that, the story goes into a near constant barrage of action sequences and hilarity that ups the ante for Marvel movies. The jokes and sight gags come no less than every minute or so. The only times that the funny moments don't deliver is when the action overwhelms them (which happens a few times). Every one of the main characters (and most of the side ones too) bring their own distinctive form of charm to the humor, whether it be the crafty smartass (Star Lord), the naive warrior (Gamora), the straightforward vengeance seeker (Drax), the inferiority complexed opportunist (Rocket), or the simple minded sentient tree (Groot).

Lucy, is the atypical Besson action flick, but with a sci-fi kick (unintentional rhyme). As a fan of his type of movies, that's perfectly fine for me. The film starts off sort of similar to The Professional. The setting, the suspense, the introduction of the villain. What is it with Besson always having the baddies in a high rise building? Social statement? Scarlett Johansson, who through the length of the film is nearly emotionless, is so damn enchanting that she could make a conversation with a potato interesting. Luc sure knows how to pick his leading ladies. Min-Sik Choi's (Oldboy) villain reminded me of Gary Oldman's from The Professional, with his hilariously frightening eccentric behavior. Morgan Freeman is a mixed bag of a character. During the first twenty minutes, he helps to set up the premise nicely but, then afterward, he's relegated to the same old advice giver that he's been type-casted for. Come to think of it, his film from a couple of months ago,Transcendence, was similar with his character and the premise. But unlike Transcendence, this film knows when to stop.

The Purge: Anarchy Takes the intriguing premise from it's predecessor and delivers a better product this time around. Though it comes with many flaws, this film does what The Purge should have done in the first place. Set in the open environment of the city (LA), instead of the un-cinematic confines of a mansion, the story has a better chance to breathe. There, the affect of the purge is shown on a larger scale, and the main affect is creepy. Along with the premise, the eerie ambiance of the film (creepy masked stalkers, darkly lit areas, and that damn purge siren) is the film's biggest attribute. Also, it's lead role played by Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) is the most interesting character of the bunch however, that's not saying a whole lot. The four little known actors that Grillo bodyguards through the city, are lacking in much depth and at times, come off as victims stinking in cliche. Michael K. Williams (Omar from The Wire), plays the leader of an underground anti-purge militia. Though his two scenes in the movie weren't bad, the whole rebel thing felt like a desperate grab at enhancing the story. Long time actor, John Beasley (Walking Tall 2004), portrays a sympathetic character at the start of the film, and was probably the only person besides Grillo's that was worth caring about. Jack Conley (Payback) plays a government hit squad captain, who's involvement comes off in a way that was a bit of a stretch. What this movie needed was a villain as interesting as Rhys Wakefield was in part one

Ah, the sex comedy. Designed to be both a laugh generator and boner inducer. Problem is, how many times have you laughed while having an erection (male or female)? Sure it's happened but, nine times out of ten, you're too much into serious cave man face mode, to have a sense of humor. Those humorous times are usually relegated to things like, poorly timed bodily noises, over-contorted facial gestures, and failing to imitate the Kama Sutra by collapsing into an unrecognizable pile of limbs and body hair. For me, it's looking into the mirror with one. I believe what makes the sex comedy so enticing, is the fact that from an outside view, sex in and of itself, looks funny. I mean, have you ever seen two tortoises slapping shells? It's damn hilarious. Some sex comedies do it right with things like, good casting (American Pie), a sense of heart (The 40 Year Old Virgin), or down right well written teenage debauchery (Porky's). Some take a premise and exploit it for all it's worth (That's My Boy). And some are just plain terrible (Tomcats). Sex Tape is a sex comedy that falls sort of in between the goods and bads of the genre. It has things that work. But the things that don't work slightly outweigh them. First of all, the chemistry between Jason Segel (The Muppets) and Cameron Diaz (The Counselor) is believable in a way that should make for a great comedy. They sold me on the belief that these two people truly love each other. But the sex scenes between them came off as two actors pretending to have sex. Although the story is nothing special, the charisma of the actors keeps this movie watchable. Rob Corrdry (Warm Bodies) and Ellie Kemper (21 Jump Street) as "the friends" were funny yet underused. With a longer running time than 94 minutes, they could have offered a bit more to the story. Rob Lowe's two scenes in the film were both odd and funny. It seemed like he was making fun of his old party self. The Jack Black (The Fatties) cameo near the end was probably the highlight of this movie. Everyone else who was in the film was there for a little more than a blink.

Directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), this second in a planned trilogy is as near a complete package of a film as anything else that has come out this year (so far). What blows my mind, is that this one is even better than the surprisingly good, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, from three years prior. The pacing of the film is just one of many of its positives. The story is so well written and executed on screen, that I don't think I noticed a single boring moment. Every scene was important for the overall picture. The apes take center stage for most of the film, with the humans being portrayed as the outsiders. Along with Caesar (Andy Serkis, brilliant again), some of the other apes got a good amount of show. But among all of the apes, Koba, played by Toby Kebbell (Rockanrolla), was by far the standout of this movie. The build up to him becoming the main villain was both intriguing and suspenseful. The controlled rage shown in his face and actions was scarily good. Sincere moments between apes and humans, mostly with Serkis and Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), bring a touching level of drama that most Summer blockbusters cannot duplicate. Subtly cute and funny attributes of the characters also makes things more relatable. Gary Oldman (True Romance), who was advertised as an unreasonable warmonger, was anything but that. Although he wasn't on the screen for much of the film, every scene he was in was relevant. Scenes of personal conflict between the humans and apes were relatable and didn't fall into cliche.

Tammy, is the next film line of Melissa McCarthy's superstar comedies. Written by McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone (who also directed this), this film doesn't get to explore the depths of McCarthy's acting skills. Not even as much as were shown in the mediocre, Identity Thief. Look, it may sound premature to say that she's in danger of typecasting after only four films into her newfound stardom but, I see a familiar pattern. Her characters have been crude, foulmouthed, assholes, that turned out to be misunderstood sweethearts that were just lonely. I have seen the range of this lady and, she can do so much better. I think she needs to venture out into some dramedies like what Judd Apatow's (Knocked Up, The Five Year Engagement) production company makes. Because films like this one are holding her back. Maybe she should have only written it? Regardless, she's in this one and, it's not bad but, it's not that good either. Although this was marketed as a hilarious Melissa McCarthy vehicle, it's actually a road trip comedy/Granddaughter & Grandmother drama. There are no hilarious moments in this film. Just funny, heartfelt moments. Sometimes that's better, but not with a weak script.

Is Michael Bay the Houdini of our generation? He is truly a magician. He can take a beloved cartoon from our childhood's, defecate (poo) all over it, call it a film, market the hell out of it, fool the masses into shelling out their Friday night beer money, and walk away with billions of dollars for the studios and himself. But who is the asshole here? Bay, or the people who have continued to go back to the theaters three more times since 2007's Transformers? The definition of insanity? Probably. Regardless about anyone's feelings about Bay, it's safe to say that the man is a genius. How else do you explain why each new sequel generates more and more revenue? We (the moviegoers) keep falling for the same damn thing every two to three years. If you have seen any of Bay's films after the 90's (Bad Boys 2 excluded), then you must have noticed the same old boring routine: Weak dialogue, slow motion pan over shots, MichaelBaySplosions!, and a total disregard for the fans. I wonder, when Bay is presenting the first screening of one of his movies, does he say to the audience, in the voice of Mad TV's Stuart, "Look what I can do!"? Scary thing is, I don't think he's leaving Hollywood any time soon.

How to Train Your Dragon 2, leans more on the worthwhile side of the sequel coin. This second part in a planned trilogy, does what most sequels fail to do, which is it progresses the story and the main character. Set five years after part one, we get to see Hiccup & company, a little bit older and a little bit wiser. But not too wise. They still have a lot to learn. The first thing that caught my eye was the beautifully colorful animation. And when looking closer, the choreography of motion and the detail of body texture. For example: The way Christopher Mintz-Plasse's character, Fishlegs, shakes his head, and his double chin is swaying back and forth as realistic as possible. Or when you see a close up of Gerard Butler's character, Stoick, with each individual hair on his face standing out. The animated cinematography was also attention grabbing. Scenes of Hiccup flying on his dragon, Toothless, make you feel like you're flying with them, and a bird's eye view with pan throughs during scenes of battle, really exhilarates. The action itself (though bloodless) worked well with the overall look of the film.

episode 66

 

Draft Day

It seems that sports themed movies adrenalize the viewing 

 

audience more so than any other film out there

the idea of "any given sunday" - a term that means any 

 

team can win at any time no matter what or how bad they 

 

are. No matter the odds.

Movies about sports figures, real or fictional like rocky, 

 

42, 61, the legend of bagger vance and Rudy pull at the 

 

heart strings and bring emotion to film that's rarely 

 

seen.

then you have movies like Happy Gilmore, Kingpin, Major 

 

League, Balls Of Fury and the like that take on a more 

 

humorous view of the sports world, whether it'sa serious 

 

drama piece or a comedy piece, sports movies are generally 

 

more grounded, less fantasy, more hyper-reality.  These 

 

movies tend to motivate us to be more like the "hero" in 

 

the story.  Stand up, powerful and humble all at once.  Or 

 

in the case of Happy Gilmore an angry temper tantrum 

 

throwing bob barker punching maniac.  Either way it's good 

 

stuff.

Then we have draft day.

Episode 65

The summer blockbuster...

Since the early 80's movies have been relegated to

space opera's, serial action movies, cheesy militaristic

fantasies and the buddy cop flick.

then there was the era of the cyborg and the dinosaur

and the era of the disaster flick (again)

but now the standard leader in summer entertainment has 

been the Super Hero

 

Men. In. Tights.

 

Good vs. Evil has been thrown out the window and replaced 

with multi-layered villains.

Are these movies better than the "Super Hero" movies we 

were subjected to as kids? Or are we being treated to 

another rash of Under-Roo's wearing weirdo's with bad 

effects and even worse script writing.

need for...speed?

Fast cars, beautiful women, spotty dialogue and impossible coincidences - is this the newest intro to the Fast and Furious franchise?

No...

This is the new breed of street racer/hero/bad boy

 

movies with chase scenes always seem to get your blood pumping.

Let me set the scene for you:

Steve McQueen, driving his Mustang, prowling through the streets of San Francisco when all of a sudden we're thrust into the middle of one of the greatest chase scenes in cinematic history.

2 men, 2 cars, 1 outcome.

Does Need For Speed live up to this and other classic car chase movies? Or is it just another over blown cash grab?

when frank miller created the comic 300 he was inspired by the the events that happened at the battle of thermopylae not just because of the courage of the warriors of Sparta, but because of what they stood for.  Democracy- at least the fledgling idea of democracy's roots that took seed in Greece and these men (and women) were willing to put their lives on the line for their beliefs.  Do these movies do justice to these historic (and world changing) battles or is it just another run of the mill hollywood sensation?

 

Stay tuned... for tonight we shall dine at SUBWAY!

When it comes to the genre of WWII movies we, as film goers, have been subject to the different styles of films that have tried to tell the stories of the men and women that have been a part of this conflict.

Movies such as Patton, Saving Private Ryan, Tora Tora Tora, Red Tails, The Tuskeegee Airmen show the front lines of the war, whether it's land, sea or air.

Then you have movies like Cassablanca, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Last Crusade, even the Chronicles of Narnia and Pans Labrynth have used WWII as a backdrop to tell these stories.

With the movie The Monuments Men we are taken to the next level of WWII movies.  Where men are beholden to each other to save an entire culture from eradication by going after the contributions to society a culture contributes, such as art, literature and music.

Is this movie worthy of entering the pantheon of great WWII movies?  or will it be relegated to the Pearl Harbor of the next generation?

All this on a brand new Average Joe's Movie Review show.

Top 5 with Commentary

47 Ronin is failing miserably - too much to make and worthless acting.

The Pete Holmes show is what were talking about with the whole X-Men/Batman/Superman

Injustice Gods Among Us is awesome!  I highly recommend it.

Movie reveiw -

Joe and Mike really enjoyed The Wolf Of Wall St. From the midget tossing and hookers in the office to Jonah Hill playing with himself while high on drugs and drunk at a massive party and Leo's breaking the 4th wall, this movie is one of Scorsese's best movies in a long while.

Rob Reiner was great in this movie.

Episode 52

It's Average Joe's Year End Podcast

We run through the top 10 and bottom 10 movies of the year

 (in our opinion) 

We review 47 Ronin 

Mike 4 out of 10 (Keeanu)

Joe 7 out of 10 

We thought the visuals were great, but Reeves was not even needed, the Japanese actors in the movie did a great job and could have carried it without him.  

American Hustle We both gave it high marks 9 out of 10

More types of these movies need to be made, everyone was great, Louis C.K., Deniro, Bale, Adams, Cooper and the rest of the cast really made this movie excel.  Jennifer Lawerence was spectacular and should win an Academy Award for her performance, plus she looks really good in a white one piece bathing suit lingerie thingy...

Thanks for listening this year and we will be back with more reviews for 2014!

Mike and Joe just go into talking about the Hobbit and how good it is as the middle piece of this trilogy.

Equating it to Star Wars and Empire in terms of desperation and sorrow.

As we had prepared to watch this movie, we weren't prepared to actually see how good Peter Jackson did, filming and editing the show.  How great Benedict Cumberbatch was as Smaug and how the cast really pushed the envelope in terms of action, acting and special effects.

Movies now-a-days don't have that real special "need to see" feel any more.  It's always the big action blockbuster with somewhat of a story line but it's not like it used to be when Star Wars, Raiders, Terminator, Jurassic Park and other movies that came out back when made us feel.

To me (Mike) The Desolation Of Smaug brings back that feeling of awe and magic to cinema.

The Desolation Of Smaug also brought back a lot of keen movie memories (mostly Star Wars) and moving forward, I think that Hasbro is truly missing the bus by not taking advantage of this resurgance of Dungeons and Dragons style movies.  Maybe they're still licking their wounds after that bad versions of their properties they call movies (if you want to call them that).

Also mentioned -

Bob Salvatore - Author of The Dark Elf Series, The Demon Wars.

This marks the official 1 year anniversary of this (whatever damn name we're using at this time) podcast.  My partner Joe and I can't believe that we've put out more than 50 episodes, including My pStory, Wikked Kewl Kartoons and of course A Coupe Of Average Joe's Movie Review.  We're going to have an exception year next year with this show, so please keep listening and thank you so much.

I also want to thank everyone with Super Knocked Up for allowing me to help with their Super Geeked Up show and by help, I do a smidgen of what the rest of the guys do, I do it because I love podcasting.  Thank you Jeff, Mark, Jourdan and everyone else from the series! Again, congratulations on you nomination!

I wanted to put this out there - 

Episodes 48 and 49 right now are being hosted on Soundcloud.  Why? Well... space.  I love libsyn publishing along with all the features it has available for podcast producers, but the amount of space we have is limited so I made an executive decision.  In order for fans to listen to the podcast of The Desolation Of Smaug on both, I had to keep from posting Homefront and Out Of The Furnace here on libsyn, for now.  They will be the next ones to go up as space becomes available.

Why not pay for more space? Well, limited funds, the podcast ain't payin for itself. Yet.  That's why we keep asking all of our friends to tell all their friends to share this podcast, word of mouth will help us get noticed.

Also, if you have a banner for your business, band, club, money making venture and want to be linked to our "friends of the show" area, send me an email @mps5150@gmail.com

If you're an advertiser that is looking to reach out to more people, hit the same email address.  Reasonable rates and local businesses always get preference and by local I mean friends and small business owners.

Joe and I are excited about some of the things that are happening with the podcast and with what libsyn is doing to help podcasters and we're looking forward to a bigger better 2014.

In the meantime, keep listening.  The Desolation of Smaug will be up Friday on libsyn and asap on Soundcloud.

Thank you guys so much, in the past year we've gone from podcasting with our cell phones to being able to create something I think is pretty cool and it's all because of my friends and Joe's friends that we've been able to start this venture.

The guys talk about Joel Schumacher "gheying up" batman by putting overtly aggressive homoerotic overtones in his batman movies.  Not that there is anything wrong with being gay, but there is something odd about taking characters that were already heavy with homoerotic overtones and pushing it way to far.  This coming from a man that has done 8mm, Bad Company, Number 23, Trespass, which are all incredibly good movies.

Plus, he did DC Cab, he's a big winner in my book.

This week starts the official name change from Average Joe's Movie Review to That Movie Review Show! 

The reason is because... well, there are a ton of "average Joe's" out there and we wanted to separate from all that.  The subtitle is always "With A Couple Of Average Joe's.

- On That Movie Review Show Joe, and Mike talk about a bunch of crap and Mike likes to ramble...

The review is Getaway and frankly that is what you should do for this movie, getaway... get away as far and as fast as possible.

Joe and Mike are still having audio problems, we hope that it's been fixed by the next show.  But for now it is what it is.  Growing pains.

Episode 34  "the World's End", has been temporarily postponed due to the fact that Mike had a birthday and his lazy ass didn't want to contribute! Just kidding. We decided to take a few days off (and change the name of the show, AGAIN!) but we will have the show up and running by tuesday. Thanks for listening and in the meanwhile, check out some previous podcasts like "the Last Stand" or "the Hobbit", because "Escape from Planet Earth" is getting waaaaaay more love than most of our other podcasts and that's just criminal! 

 

From Mike - I keep harping on the "sharing" thing only because I would like to grow our audience.  As you know the podcast can be heard through iTunes, soundcloud, and right on our own website www.diicast.com.

 

The reason for the continued "please share" posts is because you may have friends that like to listen to podcasts.  So you ask - why? I don't listen.  Podcasting is a growing medium, everything from movie reviews to science fact and fiction.  Audio books, lecture tapes, Neil Degrasse Tyson does a podcast (and it's excellent btw!) Joe Rogan, Adam Corolla, Kevin Smith, Jay Mohr, Doug Benson all have podcasts.  Why am I promoting other podcasts?  Because the more people know about it, the more in the social conscious, the more popular podcasting becomes. 

 

As Joe and I are in the middle of fixing, changing and making this podcast better, we decided to change the name of the show (or add on to the title?...you decide) so here's what we're going to call it:

 

 

THAT MOVIE REVIEW SHOW!

WITH A COUPLE OF AVERAGE JOE'S

We added categories to the show to make it a bit more interesting as well.

 

The Flick Pick Of The Week - Where we each choose a movie that we know needs to be passed on to others that may have forgotten or didn't even know it existed

 

Keeping It Reel - A forum for Joe and I to talk about what we love or hate about movies.  A rant if you will.

 

The Bargain Bin - Where Joe picks a movie that is seemingly underappreciated or has dropped out of the social conscience and we want the world (at least our listeners) to know about it.

 

That Movie Review - Where we review the latest movie we've seen...nuff said!

 

At The Helm - Joe and I pick a director and each of us picks one of their movies to discuss the merits of the movies and why you should or shouldn't see them.

 

and finally we round it off with the Top 5 Box Office movies (with comments)

 

As always this podcast is a work in progress and moving forward, we have a lot of great ideas that I think you, the audience member will really like. 

 

From the heart of my bottom, I really appreciate you all taking the time to listen to the show.

 

Thank you thank you thank you.

 

 

(stay frosty)

Joe and I went and saw The Wolverine this week and frankly, this podcast is LONG.  I chopped about an hour off of it and it still went over an hour...

Anyways - The big thing about the podcast is that Joe and I are changing the movie review thing up, for the better and we think that the podcast will be better in the long run.

I think podcasts are much better when you have interesting topics and cool trivia stuff and that's what we're aiming for.

A superhero movie that doesn't feel like the atypical superhero movie, and that's a good thing. Well, at least not until the unimaginative final battle, that is. Director James Mangold (Copland, Walk the Line) brings a refreshingly different visual perspective to this latest adventure for Mr. Logan. It feels like a modern day, stranger in a strange land tale, but with adamantium claws. Hugh Jackman still commands as Wolvey. Beautifully filmed in locations around Japan and Australia. Good action moments and with the most awesome action scene this year on top of a bullet train. There are a few problems with this film though, besides the final battle. Some of the characters (based off of Frank Miller's 1982 comic) have been unnecessarily changed and repurposed (studio tinkering again, see Iron Man 3). Also, Viper, played by Russian actress Svetlana Khodchenkova, seemed to have some bad voiceover dubbing and there were way too many "blurry cam" shots. I started to think that there was something smeared on my glasses!

The Good- direction, cinematography (sans blur cam), locations, makeup, costume design, art direction, some humor, action, and the opening scene & bullet train sequence.

The Bad- mythology tampering (big no-no), some slow pacing, blur cam over usage (we get it, he's weakened!) voiceover sound editing, the Silver Samurai was a disappointment, and the stereotypical action ending.

The Ugly- The big, nasty, festering mole on Viper's face. Immune to everything? Yeah, everything but a giant cyst on your grill! It looked like a burnt muffin. MOLE!!!

Stay halfway through the end credits for a cool scene. Definitely worth seeing in theaters. Too bad the ending wasn't better. Rating 7.5 out of 10

We Discuss -

Plenty of Fish

There's a train in the back ground...

Deadpool - Deadpool's primary power is an accelerated healing factor, depicted by various writers at differing levels of efficiency. Artificially endowed by the Weapon X program.

We talk about Edgar Wright (the story at the end of the show) and The World's End movie.

guardians of the galaxy, walking dead season 4 and I threaten to kill joe with a microphone over his amazing revelation that he equates Disturbed to Led Zeppelin (how.dare.he.) and the state of music radio here in Sacramento (i'll save you some time, it sucks. it sucks donkey)

Mariana trench lizard babies

In the near future, aliens identified as Kaijus have risen from a portal in a crevasse beneath the Pacific Ocean and started to attack coastal cities resulting in a war that takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity's resources. To combat the monsters, a special type of weapon is designed: massive, humanoid fighting machines, known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are bound in a neural link which lets them share the mental strain which would otherwise overwhelm a single pilot.[5]

Overly Childish Adults return home and continue their shenanigans

Three years after the events of Grown Ups, Lenny Feder has relocated his family back to the small town where he and his friends grew up. This time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day notoriously full of surprises, the last day of school. In the beginning, all of them still think that their children are still kids. But throughout the movie they begin to accept that their children are growing up.

What you didn't hear was Mike's asthma attack break down (it was tedious) and we think the cause of it is Melissa McCarthy - 2 films with her in it and 2 allergy/asthma attacks.  I thought Mike was only allergic to shitty movies - turns out, he's allergic to MM.

So Joe and I sat down and tried to review Man Of Steel and This Is The End without going to long on the podcast and frankly, that shit didn't work out. So you, my dear listener, get to hear what is the equivalent of 2, 2, 2 podcasts in ONE!

I removed roughly 1 hour worth of outtakes and garbage from this excellent podcast, it still didn't end up being under an hour.  

Here's links!
