Oscar Pre-Show Podcast Airs Tomorrow Night!
Though the new Audio Show is normally posted on Sunday, this week’s show was just too big to handle and the podcast crew needs an extra day to get things ready. That's the nice way of saying Rafe and Margaret need more time to get Sometimes Tim out of his gimp suit and behind a microphone. He had kind of a wild weekend
Weekly Blend #171 - Danny
We're back after our week off with our favorites from the Super Bowl advertisements, reviews of Taken, several Oscar nominated movies, a new STD on Battlestar Galactica and more. Don't forget to join us next week for our Annual Pre-Oscar Round-Up (Yee Haw!). By the way: It's been a while since we've gotten feedback listing out our mistakes, so we make sure to throw in a good number in this week's episode, including confusing Clive Owen and Daniel Craig, forgetting Sam Rockwell, and more. It's just one more service we provide for the fans.
Weekly Blend #170 - It's That Time Again
It was the big week for awards season, with the Oscar and Razzie nominations coming out. We give you our first reactions to the nominations - what made us happy, what we wish had happened, and how we feel the Academy missed an opportunity for evolution. You'll also hear our reviews of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and Inkheart, and a discussion on the state of the horror genre, and what directors are doing to change it. (Special Guest: Zeshan Khan)
Weekly Blend #169 - Greetings From Sundance
While the regular Weekly Blend crew aren't there, we get a special call-in from the Cinema Blend team at the Sundance Film Festival. You can read about their exploits over the course of the next few days on the website. Margaret and Rafe then dive into the Golden Globe results, the end of the Watchmen War, excitement over Terminator Salvation, and more. (Special Guest: Kelly West)
Weekly Blend #168 - Wartime For Watchmen
The "Watchmen War" is heating up. Fox has distribution rights and wants to stop the movie from coming out, but suddenly both sides are talking. Is Fox finally seeing the error of their ways, or are they the bullies of the theatrical sandbox? We talk about the proclaimed "Watchmen War" as well as the current status of the awards season, including the People's Choice and Golden Globes. (Special Guest: Katey Rich)
Weekly Blend #167 - The Best of 2008
It's our annual year end wrap-up, where we look at the best and worst of what the year had to offer. It's been a year that started with a writer's strike, saw in increase in digital distribution, advances in animation, and more. What was our favorite movie? Who stood out to us as an actor? What movie surprised us the most or disappointed us the greatest? All the answers lie in this week's show.
Weekly Blend #166 - Eggnog!
Our last show of 2008 sees Margaret acting a little loopy. She says it's because of eggnog, but it could also be the addition of her sister, Liz Say, who sits in for the absent Sometimes Tim this week. Hear our review of Seven Pounds, a debunk to all those horrible Dark Knight sequel rumors (Eddie Murphy?), and updates on some of our favorite science fiction and comic book franchises. Happy Holidays to all, and join us in two weeks for our year end wrap up.
Weekly Blend #165 - Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
In the spirit of the holiday season, this could be considered a "very special" episode of the Weekly Blend, where Rafe makes an announcement about something special that might change his subjectivity toward films in the future. We discuss the Golden Globe nominations, actors offering their opinions on their franchises, and our own holiday entertainment traditions.
Weekly Blend #164 - Viruses Abound
Margaret had a virus last week that kept us from having a show. This week it's Rafe's turn to have the virus... or at least his computer's turn. It looks like we're putting out a show despite a nasty computer virus's best efforts. Join us for talk about holiday movies, The Day the Earth Stood Still, an Alien movie without Aliens, and listener mail! (Special Guest -Zeshan Khan)
Weekly Blend #163 - Blame The Boy Wizard
Twilight blazes at the box office despite a lukewarm reception from most of the people we've heard from. What a perfect kick off to a holiday movie season that looks mediocre at best. Why aren't this year's offerings looking more attractive? We blame Harry Potter, who backed out from this weekend, leaving the next few weeks looking sad. Hear our commentary on the next month's worth of movies, as well as the latest round of remakes and sequel news.
Weekly Blend #162 - What Do You Call Twilight Fanatics?
This week is predominantly about James Bond and Twilight. Who better to have join us for a discussion of Bond's latest adventure than someone from his native land? With that in mind, Richard Brunton joins us to talk about Quantum of Solace and then stays on to talk about other things, like Star Trek, glampires and trying to figure out what Twilight fanatics should be called. (Special Guest: Richard Brunton from Filmstalker)

You’ve already read our official review by Josh Tyler. Now take a look at our second opinion, offered through our video review. See Rafe Telsch make his own barrel sequence walk and then offer his opinion on James Bond’s latest adventure, Quantum of Solace.
