Eftrou 166: movies to beat the heat

Greetings EftRou Troopers I’m back and ready to share our latest episode with all of you!  As you may have heard I was out this last week due to a rather nasty sunburn. With that being said this week Q and I find the best movies to “beat the heat” with given it’s been rather toasty here in Colorado.  Also we take time to review a movie neither of us have seen before, called Swingers.

Retro DVD Review

The Swingers Gang

The Swingers Gang

You may not know this, but Q and I have never seen Swingers and if you listened to the last episode you heard that one of Mike’s picks for who he would want to hang out with was Vince Vaughn‘s character “Trent” from Swingers.  So, we took the time to see this flick which also stars: Jon Favreau of “Iron Man (2008)” “Iron Man 2 (2010)” fame, Ron Livingston “Office Space (1999)” and the always lovely Heather Graham in a brief scene at the end of the film.

Undoubtedly this is a great Guy movie and is “so money, baby!” & is worth taking a look at. Listen in to hear what else we had to say.  If you feel the same or have a great line you want to share with us?  Drop us a line, baby, it’ll be money!

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on Facebook or twitter via @entfortherest. You can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q), Mike (@CB_Robinson) and SquareRoss (@SquareRoss).

Denzel Washington in Safe House

Denzel Washington in Safe House

Mike and Q took some time this last week to pickup Safe House (2012) staring Denzel WashingtonRyan Reynolds Vera Farmiga and Robert Patrick.  Safe House centers around CIA agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) who is tasked with looking after a fugitive. But when his safe house is attacked, Weston finds himself on the run with his charge Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington). Find out why Mike wasn’t confused during this spy movie, like he has been in the past.  We also talk about past Denzel Washington films and make an interesting discovery.

After credits scenes

After Credits Scene #2 From The Avengers

After Credits Scene #2 From The Avengers

We’ve been chatting amongst ourselves about what we like and don’t like about these fun scenes that producers and directors sneak in.  Some examples are the bloopers from Horrible Bosses, the after, after credits scene from The Avengers and all of the past Marvel Iron Man, Thor, & Hulk films.  We all take turns sharing our favorite after credit scenes and in the process take time to discuss if these are even needed.

Show hijacked

In a bit of spontaneous-ness both Mike and I hijack the show to discuss TNT’s, The Killing. Joel Kinnaman (The Killing star) makes a noticeable wardrobe choice in Safe House (2012) the we just had to mention.

The crew touches on the fact that both Mirror Mirror (2012) and Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) both are coming out right along the same time as “Once Upon a Time” (2011) (TV series) will be wrapping up its season.

This and that

The crew is back minus Shady who couldn’t make it this week, but returning from his hockey nights Mike is back!  We kick things off with another cornucopia with bits and pieces from all over.  The crew talks some video games as well as rumors of Netflix picking up canceled shows to give them an additional leg up on the competition.

To 3D or not to 3D?

The crew talks/discus’s/debates if 3D is good or bad after reading a post which can be found here by Walter Murch.  What are your thoughts do you agree or disagree with the crew?  Also will some day our only choice be 3D films or will 2D movies still be around?

GOON and HUGO

We touch on the movies GOON and Hugo which just hit DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital release.  Whats unique about GOON is how its been marketed and released.  Long story short, it wasn’t picked up by a major US studio right away and ended up being released over in the UK first. It has made its release on many US outlets in the recent last couple months, now available Online through iTunes, March 28th on HDNet Movies and on March 30th in select theaters.  Mike talks about his thoughts on the movie and a little personal hockey history to go along with it.  Q and Mike also touch on HUGO and what they thought of the film and the “PSA” it was putting out at least according to Q.  This is also Martin Scorsese‘s first family film.

A little TV chatter

Walking Dead Season 2 Poster

The crew tops of the show with a little bit of TV news and hopefully some insight into the big events of “The Walking Dead“, if you haven’t seen (Warning Spoilers Ahead) or heard (Warning… Spoilers Ahead) about what happened than you live under a rock as its been spoiled every which way and the other and was already known to happen due to the graphics novel’s storyline which the show is taken from.
