With Interstellar releasing next month to own, what better way to kick off posting podcasts I’ve been on than the Oops All Movies episode (with Joe Woody and Neal Lewis) for the new Christopher Nolan space epic? This episode originally released on November 16th, 2014 and featured my song Stereo Sight Seekers for my previous Oculus Rift VR project Powergrid.
Incidentally, I bought that jacket in the above photo that night prior to seeing the movie mainly because it felt very spacey and reminded me a lot of the apparel in Alien, which I was in the middle of playing at the time. Later, I ended up using that in the December Cinecomic Experiment as well.
“I am space man.”
“WTFTL” – Did you think 2001: A Space Odyssey was too confusing? We think you’ll like this, because this harvest, the farmers are going to space. Sex, lies, and space travel.
I joined the gang at Oops All Movies to review Gravity. Original episode date: On October 12th, 2013.
Episode 135 — “Ed Harris” — A movie as big as Gravity calls for a show equally as big. Hence, we have not one special guest, but two this episode, as Xander Davis joins us in-studio and Mike Colangelo calls in from Canada for a wide-ranging discussion on Alfonso Cuarón’s much-buzzed about movie. Question of the week: What scene from another sci-fi movie would you place into Gravity?
I joined the gang at Oops All Movies to review Ender’s Game. Original episode date: On November 8th, 2013.
Episode 139 — “Game Over Man” — Special guests Xander Davis and Kristin Jones join us in-studio for a wide-ranging discussion of Ender’s Game, the long-awaited film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s renowned science fiction novel. Does writer/director Gavin Hood do the book justice? Question of the week: What game would Ender NOT be very good at?
One of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. With so much money and VFX artists’ blood, sweat, and tears spent on this, the lack of a cohesive vision is so bad, by filmmaking standards today, it’s offensive. I joined the gang at Oops All Movies to review Spidey’s latest ridiculous fail on the silver screen, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Original episode date: On May 10th, 2014.
Episode 164 — “Gwen Stefani” — Special Guest Xander Davis joins us for a wide-ranging discussion of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in which we dissect Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman’s writing, the themes, Peter Parker’s depiction, the performances and more, before delving into spoiler territory to assess the climax.
This was the first time I joined the gang at Oops All Movies to review The Wolverine. Original episode date: On August 2nd, 2013.
Episode 126 — “Facial Herpes” — Video game developer Xander Davis joins us to discuss the latest X-Men movie, The Wolverine. We have high praise for Hugh Jackman’s performance and Jean Grey’s presence in the movie, but the claws come out when discussing the Viper character and the movie’s third act, which we rip to shreds. Also: Neal returns to the show and we try to muddle our way through an episode without a Bingsley. Question of the week: What movie or franchise would you like to see get a second chance?
