EftRoU 107: the extra value show…

This by far has been our biggest show to date, we had six people in studio and one person calling in. Here is the list of everyone on the show, first our guests: Ms. Michelle Whitt and James Gralian (you may recognize James voice from our intro). In addition to Michelle and  James we also had our regulars on the show, Mike Leach, Shady the Biker, Dillon 2.o and Dano.

This week the EftRoU crew reviews, discusses and analyzes two different feature flicks. But before we did that we had a memorable moment sharing significant TV memories. As for the feature flicks we reviewed ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ and ‘Source Code’.

Feature Flick #1

Movie Battle Los Angeles

Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group - Battle: LA

The first feature flick we discussed this week was ‘Battle: Los Angeles‘ staring Aaron Eckhart. ‘Battle: LA’ is about a soon to be retired Marine staff sergeant who leads a platoon of fellow Marines against a UFO invasion. If you haven’t figured it out the battleground… the streets of Los Angeles. I don’t have much else to say about this film other than – listen to the EftRoU crew discuss.

Feature Flick #2

Movie Source Code

Summit Entertainment, LLC - Source Code

The second feature flick we review this week is ‘Source Code‘ staring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright. When decorated  Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he’s part of a mission to find a bomber. During his assignment he learns he’s part of a government experiment called the “Source Code.” As part of the mission Colter re-lives the same incident over and over again to gathering clues until he can solve the mystery of who the bomber is.

 

Let us know what you think of these movies, by leaving a comment. Tell us if you disagree or agree with what we shared. If we missed anything, just let us know.

Also be sure to check out James’ new venture called Podgeek.com, it’s well worth it.

EftRoU 98a: hockey can be entertaining…

As most of you know I am a big fan of hockey and I watch the Avalanche on TV when ever I can find the time. I used to go to at least 6 games a year back in the day until it just became to cost prohibitive for me and The Moderator. We love watching hockey and find it to be a great form of entertainment.

Hockey All Star Game

2011 NHL All Star logo

So for those of you out there that are not hockey fans or have not every really watched hockey before this is my plea to say, “You got to give it a chance!” This weekend January 28-30, 2011 you can check out the All Star game on Versus, check your local listings for time and channel.

In an effort to help introduce the EftRoU audience to this years NHL All Stars I invent my friend Tapeleg from the Rink Podcast. That’s right I said Tapeleg, from www.rinkpodcast.com. Tapeleg and I record a special episode to discuss what we think of hockey as a whole as well as the new twist that the NHL has put on this year’s All Star game.

Listen in and then let us know if we made you into a hockey fan or at least curious about the game. Or if you’re already a fan let us know what you think of this years All Star game format.
