DV-Debrief

The Fighter Movie

Paramount Pictures - The Fighter

Don’t ask me why we saved ‘The Fighter‘ until it was on DVD to review it, but we did and we are glad we finally saw this Academy Award winning film. If you don’t know by now what The Fighter is about let me share that with you now. This movie takes a look at the early years of boxer “Irish” Micky Ward and his brother, Dicky Eklund, who helped him train before becoming a big time pro. The Fighter stars Mark Wahlberg as Micky Ward, Christian Bale as Dicky Eklund, Melissa Leo as Alice Ward (Micky and Dicky’s mom) and Amy Adams as Charlene Fleming (Micky’s girlfriend). If you’ve seen this movie in the theaters you need to see it again and you need to view the DVD extra’s, it’s well worth it.

Feature Flick

Limitless movie

Universal Pictures - Limitless

This week’s feature flick comes to you from Universal Pictures, titled ‘Limitless‘. This is a great film to go see in theaters, especially if you are paying matinee prices. ‘Limitless’ is about a writer named Eddie Morgan who is down ‘n’ out and gets rejected by his girlfriend, confirming his belief that he has no future. But, that all vanishes the day an old friend introduces Eddie to a designer drug that makes him super focused and more confident than ever. As a former nobody he begins to rise to the top of the financial world, but serious side-effects begin to put his meteoric rise at risk. ‘Limitless’ stars Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish.

I forgot to mention that Dillon 2.0 is back. For those of you who don’t know Dillon he is our intern that really does nothing other then make an appearance on the show from time to time. It looks like his parents are going to let him come hang out with us now that he has raised in grades. We’re happy to have him back and look forward to his perspective on film, tv and music he is allowed to review.

Enjoy the show,

Also Mike and Q discuss a TV show that everyone needs to see at least once, ‘The Walking Dead‘ on AMC. This is a true TV show that is driven by characters that just happens to have zombies in it.

But wait there’s more: Mike and Q also discuss how well they are doing with their NFL picks that they made before the 2010 season started. If you don’t recall the picks they made be sure to visit Something Different.

new time, new day…

So Na is taking a break from his duty (heehee, I said duty) of posting our show content.  He was brain dead or as he put it ‘low energy’ and couldn’t come up with anything to post.

So I am stepping in to help out where I can.  I just hope to be as witty as Na!

This week we cover the bio-pic “The Runaways” staring Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning during the DV-Debrief portion of the show and “Dinner for Schmucks“, staring Paul Rudd & Steve Carell, during this week’s feature flick discussion.

Plus we try to talk about Comic-Con panels (Glee, Kevin Smith and Dexter)! But once again miss out as Mike from EatSleepGeek.com is just too busy for us!

Sit back and enjoy the show as we put on our new digs at a new time and on a new day. Be sure to catch the live show every Sunday, now, at 4:00 PM (mt).
