Weekly Blend #143 - Back From Vacation
We're back from vacation and fully recharged. Of course, that means we're a little disconnected from this week's major events, but we still put together a pretty good show for your enjoyment. Catch our review of Get Smart, a moment of tribute for Stan Winston, a debate over Ridley Scott's recent career, and the first part of our response to AFI's most recent lists of favorite films.
Weekly Blend #142 - Hulk Happenings
This episode was pre-recorded on Friday, so we don't have box office numbers, but we do have a ton of reviews. Catch our takes on The Incredible Hulk, The Happening, and Son of Rambow, as well as reporting on the state of Iron Man 2, G.I. Joe, Transformers 2, and more!
Weekly Blend #141 - No Charge For Awesome
We start something new this week, bringing the "podcast to the people." What does that mean? Listen to this week's show to find out. Among other things, we discuss our reviews of Kung Fu Panda, Margaret's interest in a Sex and the City sequel, the new promotional blitz for Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and that silly Terminator 4 rumor that was going around last week.
Weekly Blend #140 - Please Stand By
As we announced last week, the show's running a little late this week. Unfortunately it's running even later than we planned. It almost didn't happen at all, as Margaret's arrival at Angry Cat Studios was followed quickly by a lightning storm. We manage to get our reviews in of Sex and the City and The Strangers before a brief interruption, then discuss the recent fire at Universal, whether Seth Rogen and James Franco really lit up at the MTV Movie Awards show, and more!
Weekly Blend #139 - Indy's Back
Indiana Jones has made his triumphant return - well, triumphant in our eyes. I'm sure you have your own opinion. Margaret and Rafe give their take on the movie and talk about another possible return for Harrison Ford to the role of Jack Ryan. Also in the news: trailer responses, the future of Hancock, Shia LaBeauf's next big flick, an obstacle already in the way for The Hobbit and more!
Weekly Blend Takes A Week Off
The forces of nature, fate, and whatever other cosmic entities you may want to believe in have conspired against the Weekly Blend cast this week. Nobody is ill, but sometimes it doesnít just take illness to kill an episode. Margaretís in a funk, Rafe wants to camp out for his Indiana Jones tickets, and Sometimes Tim was the only one able to show up this week.
Weekly Blend #138 - Damn Your Vulcan Logic
It's Mother's Day so we're joined once again by Margaret's mom to discuss Sex and the City, Lost, and our grudge with our local NBC affiliate. We also talk about some of this week's Cinema Blend scoops and talk about just how far a franchise can change before you're arbitrarily tacking a name on something unrelated to the rest of the franchise.
Weekly Blend #137 - We Are Iron Men
Iron Man turns out to be a fantastic hit to kick the summer season off, and it brings with it a slew of geeked out trailers. We give our take on those as well as Lost, Scrubs, our sides of the hefty viral marketing debate, and tease a little more about the future of Cinema Blend's podcasting section.
Weekly Blend #136 - Welcome To Liberty City
When Sometimes Tim showed up bleary-eyed and sleep-deprived, I knew it could only be one thing - GTA IV, the big competition for Iron Man's official start of the summer movie season. We talk GTA, the summer movie slate, and this week's big news, including the start of The Hobbit, the tone of Dark Knight's advertising, and Hancock gone wrong.
Weekly Blend #135 - Jason Segel's Junk
Margaret takes Rafe's single complaint of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and turns it into a fixation that lasts the entire show. We try not to let one man's bait and tackle hold things up from more serious discussion though, like our take on returning favorite TV shows, the massive firing of New Line Employees, and a comparison of the opinions of online press from the people behind Marvel's summer movies.
Weekly Blend #134 - The Expanded Edition
This week marks the move to an expanded, sixty-minute show. While we want the added time for movie news, we've also added a brief window for television news as well (although it proves to be a little longer than "brief" this week). Join us as we look at NBC's fall schedule, outline Disney's animation plan for the next four years, and debate whether footage of a faked death should be left in on The Dark Knight
The Simpsons Movie Gets Blended
Donít mistake the fact that weíve recorded a commentary for the idea that we have anything to do with The Simpsons Movie. We didnít make it. We didnít contribute in the least. Weíre just fansÖ well, two of us are at least. Enjoy Margaret grumbling about the movie, Rafe trying to make it look like he knows something, and some of Timís bad impressions as you watch Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, and Spider-pig
