These sequels die hard.

Original airdate: 2 - 18 -13
President's Day weekend gave us A Good Day to Die Hard Except for Our Franchise and Beautiful Creatures, a True Blood Twilight Potter Craft plea for franchise dominance relevance existence. They both sucked, and we opined about it and the lack of consequences in our fictional universes. We also discovered the items in which create a powerful franchise, how Hollywood loses focus of said items and how we're stuck in a pre-packaged formula based movie market. Though, when don't we mention that?

We heard music from:

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, 2008 - Randy Edelman
Murder on the Orient Express, 1974 - Richard Bennett
Paris J'Taime, 2007 - Various
Die Hard 2, 1990 - Michael Kamen

Something old in something new...leaves us blue.

Original airdate: 1 - 28 - 13
After a week locked out of the studio, we came back with guns blazin', loaded with five film reviews and a fifth season of Tavern Trivia. On tap were reviews of John Dies at the End, Texas Chainsaw 3-D, A Haunted House, Broken City and The Last Stand. So, we were busy. We talked about postmodern culture, nostalgia, and the iron titans of the 80s who we cannot let retire. It was a whiz-bang of a show, and we think you'll enjoy the look backward, the look forward, and the cross-eyed look of the present.

Musical selections:
Cobra, 1986 - Sylvester Levay
Jaws 3-D, 1983 - Alan Parker
Red Heat, 1988 - James Horner
