Rafe discusses the latest from Kevin Smith and considers changing his name to "Bubbles". Guess why
Usually one of us being sick is excuse enough to cancel the show. This week we just carry on, just with 33% less snark. Sometimes Tim and Rafe discuss geeky thoughts on Star Trek, smarts in professional wrestling, the loss of Terrence Howard for Iron Man 2, a broadway version of Once, and more!
You'll find the usual madness in this week's show (reaction to the first images of Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes, Rafe's Zack and Miri porn I.D., and a statement that we know Green Lantern is a DC Character), but then we pull back the curtain for an interesting look at the movie website community, specifically an editorial revealing some of the bias and discrimination held against blogs and bloggers. (Special Guests: B. Alan Orange & Paul Christensen of Movieweb).
A few weeks ago we brought you an early review of Zack and Miri Make a Porno. This week we bring you the man behind the movie. Filmmaker Kevin Smith sits down with us and talks about his upcoming film, other projects on the horizon, and then sits in as we do our regular thing, talking movies, geek fare, and the usual bunch of B.S. for a show so large, one hour couldn't contain it. Special Guest - Kevin Smith (Warning: This episode does contain a Kevin Smith level of profanity).
This week our discussion of movie and entertainment news winds up sparking an interesting discussion about the role of a critic. When is a critic doing their job, when are they just being flat out mean, and when are they too close to a movie to truly offer an unbiased opinion? Not all is serious, however, as we give Tim an excuse to recite Kevin Smith movie lines and get revenge on Margaret for all of those "take a shot" comments.
We didn't wind up having time to run a show from San Diego during our adventures at Comic Con, so instead we're putting together a show mid-week. Rafe talks about the Comic Con experience, what was good and what fell flat, and pulls back the curtain on a few things behind the scenes while Margaret and Tim add their usual flair to the conversation.
If we haven't offended you by the end of this episode, then you truly are a die-hard fan. We discuss the ever popular topic of racial boundaries in film and new suggestions of gender discrimination. For those who don't care for such hearty subjects, we give a massive Star Trek update, talk about Kevin Smith, and start a new Weekly Blend drinking game: take a drink any time we can't remember a name. You're guaranteed to be schnockered by the end of this episode!
