Weekly Blend #173 - Oscars Wrap-Up 2009
Last week we gave you our picks. This week we look at what actually happened. From the production of the telecast, to the musical numbers, to the winners, we cover it all. What worked? What didn't work? Why? We give you our very varied answers as we tear apart the predictable, yet entertaining Oscar presentations of 2009. (Special Guests: Katey Rich and Zeshan "Sneezy" Khan)
Weekly Blend #172 - Pre-Oscar Round Up 2009
Yee Haw! It's our annual round-up of picks and predictions for Hollywood's biggest night. Will Heath Ledger take home a posthumous Oscar, and does he really deserve it? Is Benjamin Button more about visual effects or acting performances? Does Slumdog Millionaire deserve all the accolades it's receiving? And what movie will take the most debated category of the night - Best Animated Feature? All of our opinions are found within, and join us in a week as we eat crow over our picks and analyze what really happened. (Special Guests: Katey Rich and Zeshan "Sneezy" Khan)
Weekly Blend #161 - Check Your Bill
We're back from our break! The show's title is a reference to a public service message we discuss a little late in the show, but before that there is all sorts of the usual mayhem, from reviews that range from cartoons to porn, to our discussion of a remake that absolutely should not happen. We also discuss DreamWorks Animation's coming of age and our excitement of the upcoming Bond flick (although we still hate the name).
Weekly Blend #160 - Digital Banthas
It's our annual Halloween episode, which means this episode is full of tricks, like our discussion of Halloween candy and the meaning of the phrase "trick or treat" and treats, like the phrase "digital banthas." Hear our review of Saw, the latest news in the Jack Ryan franchise, a discussion over the ending of Watchmen, our response to the most absurd movie news we've heard of in a while and a belated birthday wish to Margaret.
Weekly Blend #157 - Tommy Lee Jones's Flashy Thing
Don't ask us what this week's show is about. We've all been flashed by Tommy Lee Jones's flashy thing and can't remember (that's a Men In Black reference for those who don't get it). We think we review a couple of this week's new releases, celebrate Kevin Smith not having to eat his hat, discuss more sequels (including a third MiB picture), and assess Marvel's plans for the future.
Weekly Blend #156 - A Smorgasbord Of Cowboys
Surprise! We announced last week that we would be taking the week off, but we decided we just couldn't stay away from our favorite job of commenting on movie and entertainment news. Catch Margaret's dream cast for a new western, remembering Paul Newman, commentary on the latest career moves from Johnny Depp, and our cheers or boos on a slew of potential sequels. Guest Third Seat - CinemaBlend's Katey Rich
Weekly Blend #149 - Don't Do Drugs Kids
We're back after an irregular few weeks. So what's new? Rafe is smoking, Sometimes Tim admits to a sordid past, and Margaret is harboring ill will over thoughts that she could be replaced. Still, we put together a pretty good show this week, touching base on Morgan Freeman's accident, Bernie Mac and Bernie Brillstein's deaths, more franchises attempting to move forward with new chapters, the latest from Tarantino, and even a little more follow up from Comic-Con.
Weekly Blend Special Edition - Knight Rider Interviews
The new Knight Rider series has created a lot of debate among fans of the old tried-and-true Hasselhoff series. Can this new show live up to the legend of the original? Can it avoid its pitfalls of formulaic storylines? Where in the world was turbo boost on that backdoor pilot? We got a chance to talk with a few members of the cast as well as one of the show's producers and ask them these exact questions.
Weekly Blend #147 - Now There's A Batman
The Dark Knight has arrived, blowing away box-office records and most of our expectations. Hear our individual takes on the latest Batman movie - both the good and the bad, as well as our thoughts on accusations of corpse licking in the case of Heath Ledger. Batman wasn't the only super-heroic tale worth viewing this week. We give you our thoughts on Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, the Watchmen trailer, and more!
Weekly Blend #145 - Just A Spoonful Of Hellboy
The Dark Knight is on everyone's mind, but it's still two weeks away. Thankfully we have Hellboy to tide us over and get rid of that miserable Hancock aftertaste. We discuss the flow of super-hero movies, our take on the editorial of whether The Dark Knight will damage future comic-book movies, several pieces of casting news this week, and whether anyone really wants to see a Friends film.
Weekly Blend #144 - Wild About Wall-E
Wall-E is finally here and you'll find our response to it in this week's show. How did we feel about our most anticipated movie? Listen and see. We also touch base about Wanted, continue our discussion of the AFI's latest list, look at the Saturn award winners, and talk about several sequels, including news about a few that we're happy to hear. Don't forget to check out our new video podcast while you're at it.
