EftRoU 165: Q and Mike no Square…

While you listen to this week’s episode you will notice that there are only two EftRoU crew members. Square had to take the day off due to a wild weekend in Las Vegas. So Mike and I talk about our top 5 movie characters that we would like to hang with and share some thoughts about the DVD, The Artist.

Top Five Movie Characters:

A couple of weeks ago we came up with an idea. “What if you had the chance to hang out with any movie character, who would you hang out with and what would you do with them?” We thought it was such a great topic that we are sharing the discussion with you on this very episode. Listen in and find out who we choose. Also tell us who you would hang with. Share it right here on our website or on our FanPage on Facebook.

DV-Debrief:

The Artist on DVD

Weinstein Company – The Artist

For those of you who saw my QQR you know that I saw The Artist on DVD. Well, Mike watched it was well. So, just for you here is our discussion. In case you missed it The Artist, it’s about a silent movie star who struggles with the idea of making talking pictures. But finds a sparks in a young actress by the name of Peppy Miller who lights up talkies like no one else. Find out what we think of this Academy Award winning film. (By the way it’s a silent movie.)

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.

EftRou 162: The Return of The Crew

Greetings fans! Sorry we’ve been gone so long.  Life crept up on us and took us away for a bit.  Were back and ready to continue bringing you the best in discussion of entertainment.  In This episode were diving into Prometheus as our movie pick of the week and touch base on E3 for our gamer fans as well as the rumors of the “Iron Patriot” set pictures from Iron Man 3.

E3 Thoughts

HALO 4 Campaign

HALO 4 Campaign

So both Mike and I are the gamers of the crew and talk briefly about our thoughts on this years E3 expo. If you are like ‘Q’ you may not know what E3 is all about, so just to give you a little idea; it is all about what’s next from the video game world and what publishers are working on.  Mike and Square seem to agree that Halo 4 looks like a solid game that will bring old and new fans back to the franchise.  Also our thoughts on the lack of new hardware announcements and if it’s a good thing or not.

Iron Man 3 rumors

Iron Patriot

Iron Patriot

So production has begun on the newest installment of the Iron Man movie series. This version will bring back Robert Downy Jr, Gweneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.  Rumors have been swirling around about the casting news and who will play who in the next film.  Mike and I are confident that Ben Kingsley will play the Mandarin and will fill the role nicely as the baddy.  Although the biggest bit of news recently is the bit about the “Iron Patriot” suit.  Fans went into a frenzy over this and we tell Q about why this is big news.

TED Talk Peter Weyland 2023

TED Talk Peter Weyland 2023

The crew has anticipated this film for a while and it has finally arrived!  Over the last year when the first hints of this film came down the pipe fans kept wondering why Ridley and his crew kept saying this wasn’t an Aliens universe movie.  It wasn’t until a few months ago that Ridley finally came clean and admitted this had something to do with the Alien’s franchise.  Myself, Mike and Q all come from different backgrounds going into this movie.  I in particular am a FanBoy of Sci-Fi films and dive way into the deep end of the mythology of stories like these. I love to know every nook and cranny of these fantastic universes.  Mike is a fan of the films in general and loves seeing a good sci-fi story.  Q can be a fan, but never has dived in as deep like I have.

We’ve been talking about the films great “viral” marketing campaign and since then it looks like they have taken the campaign in new directions (Take a look after the last credits to learn about a new website to go visit).  We talked about this a few shows back in which several videos appear of a young Peter Weyland played by Guy Pearce talking to a crowd at TED.  Another video is in regards to David.  Both videos can be found here (Ted Talk) and here (David Video).

EftRou 160: Mullet Time!

This week we assemble earths mightiest entertainment pundits, well almost mightiest, to take on the challenge of the Avengers. Before we tackle some super heroes we catch up with the crew and play “Name That Movie” (a new game from the mind of ‘Q’) and talk about our upcoming summer movie picks.

Play

Name That Movie

The crew partakes in a fun game called “Name That Movie”. Q toss’s out some movie quotes to find out who knows their movies best. I myself did not fair well but my fellow cast mates did a fine job. I personally think Q gave the moderator some easy ones as well as gave Mike some good hints on a couple of his.  Find out who wins and find out who ultimately goes home with nothing.

Next stop summer films both bad and good.

It’s taken 4 years but the greatest movie event has arrived, for both comic book fans and non comic book fans. If your not familiar with this film here’s a little back story. At the end credits scene of the first Ironman film Samuel Jackson appears in a quick scene telling Tony Stark about a program called the Avengers initiative. Fast forward 8 different super hero movies later (Thor, Incredible Hulk, Captain America) and we have the Avengers finally assembling into what we felt has set the new standard of comic book films forever (or at least until Avengers 2). Last year the crew touched on some thoughts about this film. In  Episode 122 we chat about Captain America and the Marvel Avengers Civil War Series (Here our prediction on how that will tie into the Avengers movies). In Episode 112, before I was part of the show, the crew talked about the acting ability of some of the actors for the Avengers flick (feel free to fast forward to the 47 minute mark to hear that). Since we had a full crew this week we really get a broad perspective of this film.

EftRoU 159: Hungry Games and Robots, a fight to the death…

Hunger Games Movie Poster Katniss

We kick this week’s show off by doing something we haven’t done in a long time, a movie review… The Hunger Games (2012).  If you haven’t heard about the The Hunger Games (Wikipedia), you’ve been under a rock, it’s the first book of three written by Suzanne Collins and takes place after an unknown apocalyptic event. The basic idea… to help keep the peace and to remind citizen of a time that was much worse the leaders pit young men and women against each other in a fight to the death. Nice right! The film stars rising star Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class, Winters Bone), Josh HutchersonElizabeth Banks (40-Year old virgin, The Next 3 Days) as well as many others, including a solid performance by Woody Harrelson.  Most people probably won’t catch the surprisingly good performance by musician Lenny Kravitz, we did.  The crew and I took some time to share our thoughts about what was missing in the movie. Listen in to see if we thought the movie held up to what was in the book.

Thief of Thieves

Our resident expert, Mike, helps us out with getting the background on a new AMC show called “The Thief of Thieves”. It’s a new show based on a comic book. Now you see why we needed Mike’s help. As you all know we enjoy us some comics and once again Mike helps us get it right.

Robots and Reboots

Jamie Hyneman

Next the crew dives into the world of Robots and Reality TV… this time being brought to us by James Cameron.  Cameron will produce a weekly series called RoboGedon, similar to Battle Bots & Robot Wars.  Both of those shows featured competitors facing off in a fight to the death against other robots (Kinda got a theme running with this episode). We take some time to talk about Jamie Hyneman’s, of Mythbusters fame, Blendo robot and the show RobotWars featuring Grant Imahara’s Deadblow.  Q and I are looking forward to seeing this show and are hoping they bring back some of these guys whose careers obviously haven’t deviated to far from where it all began.

And last but not least its time for another reboot, this time… Short Circuit (1986).  A more menacing “Johnny 5” has been proposed by director Tim Hill. Check out the article here.  Q is excited about a more “Menacing” Johnny 5 and I’m still crying about another part of my childhood being remade. As Q says I need to get over it, plus he calls me old.

Here is the link to our previous show we referenced. And we would love to hear from you on our Facebook page so leave us a comment or two there.
