Episode #24: In the Kings’ Name

June 30th, 2012

How about a taste of the REGAL for this week’s episode?  Mmmm.  A sumptuous & savory spread to satiate your sweet tooth for all things shocking, secret & sovereign.

From silver spoons to Lexus convertibles, we’ve got something for even the most discriminating collector.  Now, we realize that on the surface these films have no correlation betwixt them aside from their stately titles, but oh how wrong we were.  They also have no royal kings, but pimp cups are making their place at the table and on the tapestries.  Okay, there are no pimp cups per se, but you’ll get our drift.

Speaking of drift, one of these was directed by the guy who wrote the Fast & the Furious.  That’s as close as we’ll ever get to that.  So prepare thy self for a feast among 3 foppish films.

Episode #23: Actors Playing Actors

June 23rd, 2012

  • Cold Souls
  • Being John Malkovich
  • 10 Items or Less

  • Many Greek myths entail one god or another descending from Olympus (where the cameras come from) & making mischief in the mortal realm.  This week’s episode resembles this notion...   ish. Now, while modern day actors are by no means as prevalent as the titans of old (even though one of them has actually played GOD…twice) they still occupy that bright & shiny realm of Celebrity. And we know how much people eat THAT up.  Once in a while, actors disguise themselves as     uh    well, themselves.  So, our fellow ravenous masses, we entreat to gorge yourselves on the tender fair we provided for this week as we peel a layer back.  Or add one.  There's layers n stuff:

    Episode #22: Remakes for the Better 1

    June 16th, 2012

    The Lion In Winter:  1968 battling 2003.  Lawrence of Arabia squares up against Captain Picard.  The woman who brought up baby takes on the vice president to Harrison Ford.  Spoiler, the new version is mostly better in our world.  See them both, then decide for yourself.  In what could end up our most controversial series, we look at the good and bad side of modern adaptations of classic (at the least existing) films.  This may not be on everyone's radar, but the script is unparalleled in many respects.  Almost Shakespeare without the language barrier.

    Four Titans face off without Sam Worthington falling in & out of his Australian accent.  Man we're getting snarky in our 20's.  If your taste favors the way things used to be made, don't worry.  We will get to that soon.  There is a list of movies where the original left the future attempt in the dust.  Until that day, enjoy this and give us other ideas to throw into this category.

    Episode #21: The Muppets

    June 7th, 2012

    All Hail Jim Henson: Lord of the Strings!  


    The Muppets have been a staple in entertaining children for decades, but the momentum has slowed between recent movies.  The parent company may have been reluctant (reflected in the story itself), but it has already made twice its budget - nearly $100,000,000.  A new generation will grow up with new Muppet capers; we felt it necessary to look at how the Muppets grew up.

    Here's to hoping they'll make one with the governator.  In the meanwhile, there is Pennywise...

    Episode #20: What is Best in Life?

    June 2nd, 2012

    You guessed it.

    The title says it all!

    Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Arnold has become one of the most iconic celebrities of the past 30 years.  And while we doubt he’ll be winning any Oscars© in the near future, we DO know that his canon so far has been a tsunami of kick-ass, cherry flavored SURGE sprinkled with bits of mediocrity (we’re looking at you James Belushi)

    So get to da choppuh, consider that a divorce & let off some steam…’cause finally…after 20 episodes & a litany of bad impersonations, we give you

    ARNOLD
