Science Fiction Film Podcast (general)

 

Tron provoked some hilarious discussion between Matthew and Dean. For example: how many 5-year olds do you think you could defeat in hand-to-hand combat before succumbing to exhaustion? Matt thinks about 200. Dean thinks a lot on account of their undeveloped and terrible legs. The lads also discuss a skirt that Jeff Bridges had to wear on account of his crotch bulge. "Disney Deep" becomes a term, and the lads get into their memories of arcades and video games. Thanks again for the folks who made this episode possible by way of the Guild Bounty system!

Matthew and Dean go hard in the paint with the barn-burning Forsyth classic, Local Hero. The lads both admit that this flick wasn't their cup of tea, and not because of bad film making, but more so because not a lot happens. With Local Hero, understated becomes plodding. The shining part of the film is Burt Lancaster and Wedge Antilles. Matt says he will watch it again, and Dean says he will just take Matt's word for it. He'd [Dean] rather  watch Wicker Man ('73) instead. Special thanks again to listener Jo Pulcini for offering up the bounty to have this one covered.

Matthew and Dean talk life, death, growing up, old friends, death some more, and the fleeting years of childhood. They also manage to toss some meaty "Stand By Me" into their existential sandwich. Join the lads for another romp through their childhood memories and the perspective of adulthood that only adults can have.

Another bonus freebie for our wonderful listeners, and this week are going totally off script to talk to, Rachel Clemetson. Rachel is a student at USF St. Pete., and reached out to Dean through one of his old friends from high school named, Bill. This podcast is another dive into the process of podcasting with plenty of tips to be had. Rachel is preparing to release her own podcast called "What's My Major", and she wanted to get some perspective from people who are already in the hustle. So Bill contacted Dean, Dean said "cool", and then Rachel and Dean set up a time to talk via Skype. This episode was originally slated to be for members only, but in an effort to help Rachel network, we've decided to push it out to all of our listeners. If you're a student, a parent of a student, or just someone who may want to start their own podcast -- this episode is for you. Don't forget to follow Rachel on social media via the links below. Thanks again for listening, and enjoy the show!

Matthew and Dean had a blast with Bill and Ted's. This week you are going to learn all about Ted's sociopathic (and compound bulldozing) father, Bill's hot step-mom, and how crappy (according to Dean) the historical dudes are. They also talk about the 80s as a genre unto itself. They talk about some Ranker 80s films and they challenge their nostalgia to see what they think is actually still good cinema all these years later. Finally, don't miss out on their discussion about 80s rocker dude who is now fat with only beer in the fridge. Matt says it holds up. Dean, well - you'll have to listen...

Matthew's first watch of Sunshine dates back to high school, and it was less interesting to him at the time then trying to cop a feel on his girlfriend. On a re-watch he was much less distracted by his hormones. He came to appreciate some of what the film set out to do. Dean had never seen Sunshine, and had plenty of good to say about it, right up until Pinbacker's return from the dead as Space Freddy Krueger. Dean is on record as to saying that the final third of the film was so bad that it ultimately ruined the experience for him. Matthew was also hard on the third act, but didn't get pulled into the "this ruined it for me" abyss that Dean swan-dove into. Did the final act of the film ruin the movie for you? Let us know!

Matthew is back from the dead and he joins Dean to discuss the only film that John Carpenter ever directed that got an Academy Award nomination. That's right! Jeff Bridges got a nod for Best Actor from his performance in Starman. Matthew was delighted by Jeff Bridges’ portrayal of a alien who fell to Earth. Dean, an admitted Bridges fan, landed on the opposite end of the "Bridges is great in this movie" spectrum. Dean is on record saying that Bridges, at times, was “very punchable.” They both agreed that the military stuff in the movie lacked any nuance, but they are both on-board with the structure and pacing. Join the lads as they take a romp through 80s science fiction.

This week Dean is joined by Josh and they are breaking down "The Hunt for Red October" a film that the two of them have watched together dating back to the 90s. Although Josh is an admitted fan-boy of Harrison Ford (who is more well known that Baldwin for playing Jack Ryan), he found Baldwin's performance perfect for the character. Dean and Josh both get into the fantastic cast and wonderful editing in this (we are calling it) military thriller. Don't worry, plenty of jokes are had at Tim Curry's portrayal of den-mother (read: hopeful lover) Dr. Petrov and his insistent care for all the sinewy seamen under his charge (read: he wants to bang them). Special thanks to all of the listeners who chipped in to get this guild bounty covered.

The lads finish up the 'Prugh Trilogy' this week by getting into the nitty-gritty of Open Range. By the end of this week's episode you will know all about awful Irish villains and their fey allies, you'll get a glimpse into the finer points of contraception (involving your stetson) in the Old West, and the real possibility of two-headed babies from late-forties parents. Make sure you got your plots dug before you get with the baby making. Matthew and Dean do manage to get to the movie between ludicrous scenarios that have nothing to do with this film. You've been warned.

Matthew and Dean are joined by Daniel James Barker from the Uncertainty Principle Podcast. Daniel brings his physics expertise along with his perspective on the book (which Matt and Dean DID NOT read), and lends some unique perspective to this week's episode. Although a trained physicist, Daniel isn't much of a network tech. He experienced some internet issues along the way, but like Mark Watney, he never gave up. Join Matthew, Dean, and Daniel as they discuss the finer points of "The Martian" -- like how this film is a sequel to "Good Will Hunting." Enjoy!
