Movie review #1

Spider-Man Movie 2012

Columbia Pictures – The Amazing Spider-Man

A while back, like a month ago, a movie hit the theaters that we never got around to talking about. By now you most likely have seen it, but we are going to talk about it anyways. It’s The Amazing Spider-Man, staring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. This is another origin story for Spidey, listen in to find out what we think of this reboot.

Movie review #2

The Bourne Legacy Movie

Universal Pictures – The Bourne Legacy

Last weekend Universal Pictures and Relativity Media released The Bourne Legacy to theaters everywhere. This film builds on the Jason Bourne movies; this time it’s centered around a new hero, Aron Cross (Jeremy Renner). It looks like this franchise has some legs.

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).

Until next time…

 

EftRou – 139: cold cold ground….

The gang is back this week minus Shady after the Holiday week.  We start off with a few rumors regarding “The Dark Knight Rises” and check in with the “Media Mogul Fantasy” numbers that we picked previously. We figured its been a while since we had ourselves a Cartoon character showdown on EftRoU so this week along with that we have our thoughts on The Muppets which hit theaters last week.

Cartoon Character Showdown:

Captain Caveman

Hanna-Barbera

 

Our first topic tonight is “Captain Caveman” vs. “The Tasmanian Devil“:  Both Mike and I (SquareRoss) go head to head in the latest cartoon character showdown.  Mike picked Captain Caveman and talks about why Captain Caveman is better than The Tasmanian Devil which is my pick this showdown.  We debate and state our case for the best cartoon character, see who ultimately ends up coming out on top!  Will it be the Caveman with the Babes or The tornado traveling Tasmanian Devil? Let us know who you think is the better character by leaving a comment below.

Muppets in an important meeting

Muppets Studio

Our Movie this week is “The Muppets” returning to the big screen and our lives.  This latest installment is the first Muppet outing since 1999’s “Muppets from Space“.   The movie features a Trio of fans Gary (Jason Segel), Mary (Amy Adams) and the newest Muppet Walter (Voiced by Peter Linz) who travel to LA for a vacation but instead end up helping the Muppet’s save their theater & studios that they used to call home from the Villainous Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) who has alternative plans.  As with any of the previous Muppet movie’s or TV show’s the whole gang is back and funnier than ever. Be ready for some cameos from many top stars, not to be unexpected with a Muppet movie.  This one definitely brought out an enlightening and interesting conversation as well as trips down memory lane for the whole cast of EftRoU.  If you have some good memories or thoughts you have about seeing the return of the Muppets, leave us a comment or take the conversation to our Facebook Page an tell us your thoughts.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on twitter via @entfortherest you can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q), Shady the Biker (@ShadyTheBiker), Mike (@cb_robinson) and me, SquareRoss (@daniel_ross).

Until next time stay safe and enjoy your entertainment!

DV-Debrief:

Marvel Knights - Black Panther

Marvel Knights: Black Panther DVD

The DVD that we review this week was originally a TV series on BET. Marvel Knight: Black Panther is based on the Black Panther comic. We discuss what we thought of the 6 series episode as well as if you should rent this or not. You will find some great voice over work by Djimon Hounsou, Alfre Woodard and Jill Scott. Plus if are not familiar with the Black Panther comic you will learn something new as Mike lays down some science.

Feature Flick:

Priest

Sony Pictures Entertainment - Priest

Our feature flick this week was adapted from a manga. Priest is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi that is set in an alternate world.  This world is ravaged by years and years (from the beginning of time) of war between man and vampires. A legendary warrior Priest from the last of the Vampire wars is now living among the human inhabitants in cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is taken  by a  pack of vampires, he breaks his vows and begins a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Q star in this movie. Listen to find out what the EftRoU crew think of this movie. See if we think it is worth seeing in the theaters or waiting for DVD.
