It’s that time again… on this week’s episode we bring something a little different and new to the show, plus we review the feature flick The Ides of March. We touch on some hockey and a bit of controversy around DC’s New 52.
Points of Interest:
Listen in as Mike describes the opening night of the Winnipeg Jets and what it was like to be there. We then address this post on Comic Alliance. We give a lot of credit to these folks for creating content that we just had to talk about. During this segment we mention two other websites that are a must read. One is the one Mike has written for called EatSleepGeek and the other is MajorSpoilers. Check-um out and let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
The new segment that I alluded to above is called EftRoU Media Mogul Fantasy League. We plan on having four seasons each year of the league and the point is to see who know more about media. Each of us will pick from movies, TV shows, video games and new DVDs. During this segment we kicked off with the first two rounds of the Media Mogul draft. In the first round Mike picked The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Shady’s pick was Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Square Ross went with The Muppets, and I picked Battlefield 3. Listen in to see what else we pick in round two. We will also post all our other picks in a later plus the results spreadsheet for the world to see. Look for that to come later.
The Ides of March stars George Clooney, not only does he star in this movie he also directors it and did some writing. The Ides of March is based on the play “Farragut North” by Beau Willimon. It’s about a dreamy campaign staffer for a new presidential candidate who receives a crash course about dirty politics. Other stars in The Ides of March include Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright and Evan Rachel Wood. Listen in and see what we think of this movie. After you hear our thoughts tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
Thanks again for stopping by and listening to the show. Be sure to tell your friends and family. See you again next week!
