Well, not quite. But we do have a B-movie double feature for you. One of them is Hercules, and the other is in space! Curt and I fire up the reaction chamber for two new released from the Asylum. Age of Tomorrow blends elements of Armageddon, Ender’s Game, and Independence Day. Hercules Reborn seeks to merge Conan, Gladiator, and Robin Hood. Both of them are solid movies that we enjoyed well enough. The final rating for both of them is “Borrow.” We close up with a quick review of a trip to the comic book store where we stumbled upon hidden treasures in the form of Ogre Pocket Edition and Atomic Robo the RPG! Woot! Both of them deserve an episode of their own, and we’ll get to that!
Lastly prior to firstly…. Sharknado the Riffing is coming to Evansville! We missed the live riffing of the movie on July 10, and we’re gunning for the rerun on Tuesday July 15! Check your local listings or follow the link to the good folks at Riff Trax! Read more »
Curt and I sit down to discuss a pair of new television shows. “Dominion” on SyFy and “The Musketeers” on BBCA. While our opinions are divided about Dominion, when it comes to The Musketeers, it’s all for one!
Prepping resumes with the discovery of a new prepping show! Like many others, this one takes the formula of the first to market and attempts to put its own spin on things with memorable characters and situations. We like it. Also, in anticipation of the upcoming Sharknado 2: The Second One, we give our own tips on how to survive a Sharknado. Trust us, we’re experts!
I’m joined in the reaction chamber by Petra and we take on a double dose of Disney films. Maleficent is the box office darling right now, but our reaction to the film is less than enthusiastic. By the same token we finally get around to watching The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer – a film that was nearly universally panned. And we got really excited about it. The short version of the podcast is: skip Maleficent and go see The Lone Ranger.
Don’t forget, this is the final week to get in on the Opposing Forces Kickstarter, so jump in!
