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.
We review Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Sabotage
Gandalfini's last movie
Sex Tape red band trailer
Fantastic Beasts and where to find them Harry potter
Marvel Studios plans through 2028
Justice League and DC falling apart

Fast cars, beautiful women, spotty dialogue and impossible coincidences - is this the newest intro to the Fast and Furious franchise?
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?
Find out on this weeks Average Joe's Movie Review -
Need For Speed...
It's in the game!

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?

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.

This Weeks 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.

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!
Mon, 30 December 2013
It's the end of the year and man are there a lot of movies out! Joe and I are happy with our first year.

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 @firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

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.

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.

a missing portable nuclear device.
A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and
tries to find the man who murdered him.
We talk about Dating Web sites and fat ugly people that troll dating sites looking to hook up or the fake profiles
that exist on these sites plus we review the movies that you haven't seen yet, talk about comic-con, godzilla,
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)
Disney's Song Of The South
Go big or go home movie trailers don't make sense.
Linkin Park song in Red 2 is Given Up but they should have used Girl Gone Bad by Van Halen - but NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO
Killer Joe - weird movie, but a good watch
Tex Avery - Magician/concerto
the noise in the back ground is the fan - sorry.

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.
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.
The film that was held up due to rights restrictions was Fantastic Four, when Constantin films wanted to make movies...
Friends of the show at Super Geeked Up a great show you can watch and listen to in the near future.
