Blanukkah Bliday

(original podcast date 11-25-14)
On the heels of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Black Friday (so to speak) this week, we were feeling a bit festive. The Boom Operator reviewed Ender's Game, and found it surprisingly decent. We both took Hunger Games: Catching Fire to task for knocking aside the political message for a goddamn Twilight-inspired love triangle (a criticism that could be leveled at the books). Bleh.

We heard music from:

Black Sunday, 1977 - John Williams
Planes, Trains and Automobiles, 1987 - Various
Catch Me If You Can, 2002 - John Williams
Jingle All the Way, 1996 - David Newman

A Thor in Our Side

(original podcast date 11-11-13)
Salutations and whaddup, beloved listeners. The brisk, pleasant cool of Fall has eased up a bit (dammit) while Thor continued to thwack the box office and the Boom Operator spent almost the entire time talking to an old hippie who was an extra on Zabriskie Point. It was a chatty show.

We listened to the following:

Dark City, 1998 - Trevor Jones
Fire and Ice, 1983 - William Kraft
