Last podcast before the obligatory Christmas special.

Howdy folks,

Here's another podcast for you. We reviewed two animated films currently in theaters, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Princess and the Frog. A big week for DVD releases this week as Christmas shoppers are more and more susceptible to being duped into buying junk they don't need. Also, Avatar is coming this weekend, so be prepared for some reviews next week of this highly anticipated technical ability dick measuring contest.\

What, What, a podcast in the butt...

Howdy gang,

Another podcast down and we'll be on live again tonight at 8pm CST. There's some good crap in this podcast so you should enjoy. The Gaffer and I both got parking tickets and were in pissy moods so our rants were fueled with citation-induced fury. I'm not going to bother with a set list this week, just because. Download it and find out. if you don't, I'll write you a $45 ticket.

New Podcast and Hairy Potter.

Hey Gang,

Another show down, I reviewed 2012 and The Twilight Saga: New Moon and I wasn't forgiving. We had a few decent DVD releases this week and some interesting news that you might wanna check out. As far as music goes, we heard the following:

A Scanner Darkly - Grahm Renolds (2006)
Amarcord - Nina Rota (1973)
Amelie - Yann Tiersen (2001)
2012 - Harald Closer & Thomas Wander (2009)
Bachelor Party - Various (1984)
Yellowstone (IMAX) - Bill Conti (1994)
Twilight Saga: New moon - Alexandre Desplat (2009)
Blood for Dracula - Claudio Gizzi (1974)

Also, in other news, what the heck is going on with Daniel Radcliffe's chest? In a recent 20th Birthday Portfolio shoot from Empire magazine, the trifecta of wizardry posed for a little "Hey look at us, we did that wizard thing" for Empire. A bunch of other celebs rehashed some of their most memorable roles with that trade mark shoddy photo set with center rear spotlight and boring facial expressions that Empire is so well known for. It's ART DAMNIT! Anyway, this is not the best photo of ole' Danny McWandwiggler. He's certainly putting the Hairy into Harry Potter. ::rimshot::

Put this in your clam bake, bitch cake.

You know, I don't often post movie trailers and what not up here anymore, cause it seems you can't swing a dead twitter account around without hitting some sort of "movie blogger" these days....however, I couldn't resist posting this little gem I watched recently. Oh, and by gem, I mean the lowest point in Kevin Sorbo's career. Or the highest, depending on how you look at it. I'd much rather BE bitch slapped than actually have to watch "Bitch Slap".

The terrible over use of poor slow motion and green screen effects are enough to make me spurt milk out my nose, but the tag line is the real kicker:

"BITCH SLAP is a post-modern, thinking man’s throwback to the “B” Movie/Exploitation films of the 1950’s - 70’s as well as a loving, sly parody of the same. Inspired by the likes of Dragstrip Girl;, Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill; Kung Fu Nun and the pantheon of Blaxploitation films, BITCH SLAP will mix girls, guns, outrageous action and jaw-dropping visuals with a message… don’t be naughty! At its core, BITCH SLAP follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort and steal $200 Million in diamonds from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive for the score, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and they are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected… themselves. It’s the ultimate morality tale as, one by one, they realize the whole she-bang was a set-up and one of them may not even be human… What also makes BITCH SLAP different is a complicated “B” story device that runs throughout the film to illuminate character, backstory and relationship histories not previously revealed. Like the film Memento, these scene flashbacks take place in reverse, so by the end of the film, you have a wholly different take on who these women are and why they are behaving so badly. Bet you never saw THAT in Jailbait Babysitter!"

I love the usage of things like "complicated" "ultimate morality tale" "post-modern" "thinking man's" and especially "jaw-dropping visuals with a message"

These movies get made. Somehow.
...and yet I still can't get a movie deal.

Another Podcast ya'll

Hey guys, check the archives on the right for some older podcasts I haven't posted yet. It's been such a busy few weeks for me I haven't been able to steadily update the podcasts after the live broadcasts.

Here's the latest one for your listening enjoyment. Sorry for the lack of playlist, but I don't have time to fill it out properly, so you'll just have to be surprised!


PS here's a couple of pictures from myself and The Gaffer on Halloween. We went out to my annual Halloween party (my other moniker is Beat Bachs, where I moonlight as a hot shot DJ and party thrower)

Us in costume!

Your host with the most!

October Podcasts, starting to sound a little spooky!

Hey gang,

First of all...shut up. I know I haven't been posting much. If you'd tune in to the radio show each week, then you'd have no shortage of my sultry voice and angry rantings. For those of you that coke points for everyone. Seriously, email me and I'll give you some coke point codes. All that aside, it's October and things are starting to get a little spooky around the studio, and we're trickling into Halloween themed movies and music. Don't forget about the annual Halloween Special which will air on October 24th!
This week we took costumer suggestions for The Gaffer, talked about tons of crappy DVD's, cured cancer and most importantly, heard music from the following films:

Big Trouble in Little China - John Carpenter (1986)
Danger: Diabolik - Ennio Morricone (1968)
Roman Polanski's Pirates - Philippe Sarde (1986)
Dune - Toto (1984)
Dead Man - Neil Young (1995)
Barbarella - Michel Magne (1968)
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir - Bernard Herrman (1947)
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey - David Newman (1991)

Labor day, chock full o' labor.

Hey guys,

I haven't gone anywhere, I've just been swamped with playing live shows and other work that involves me not being an amazing blog owner and film score show creator.
Have no fear, I will return on Monday complete with some new reviews!

Expect to hear about 9 as well as All about Steve and possibly Extract. Yes, yes, I know I'm behind...cut me some slack here.

New Podcast, give-aways, and general studliness.

Another weekend has come and gone, and we didn't actually get into the theaters. There just wasn't anything that was irresitably calling us to the silver screen, and no, Inglorious Basterds wasn't enough to get me in the seat for 3 hours. Despite a few callers defending the film and its defacto "Tarantino-awesomeness" we are skeptical, and may check it out later this week. Not many great DVDs coming out this week either. Highlights being the Criterion release of The Last Days of Disco. We talked more about Avatar, the upcoming Wolf Man remake, and new movies coming out this weekend. We also gave away more free tickets to The Second City. We heard music from a bunch of movies too, but since I didn't write them all down and we had tons of technical difficulties, I only remember playing music from these. Deal with it.


Return to Oz - David Shire (1985)
Death Rides A Horse - Ennio Morricone (1967)
Spider - Howard Shore (2002)
The Howling - Pino Donaggio (1981)
The Time Tunnel - Herman Stein (1966)
The Running Man - Harold Faltermeyer (1987)
