Science Fiction Film Podcast

Matthew and Dean discuss the film at length, but they also dive into some of the interesting and conflicting history of Bushido and the samurai. Disclaimer: they aren't historians. They just read a couple articles and are now regurgitating those findings for all of you. That's not to say that there is not quite a bit of thought-provoking stuff going on this week. On the contrary, the podcast episode launched into some very cool theories (and a few facts) surrounding the mysterious samurai. We hope you enjoy this conversation in English.

If you were to describe Matthew and Dean's discussion about Man on Fire you'd likely come up with an adjective they used to describe the editing of this film: herky-jerky. Right out of the gates Matthew admits to not being a fan of this flick. Dean has a confession of his own... until covering this film, he'd never seen the film in totality. For 13 years he told people it was great. Does he still feel the same? One thing both of our glorious hosts agree on is that Denzel is always awesome, and he and Dakota are outstanding.

Matthew and Dean go deep with Arrival. They have a blast talking about all the important things in Arrival, like how this isn't the Charlie Sheen movie, how HIV doesn't reach base as often as it once did, and how time paradoxes, non-linear time, and linguistics work. Disclaimer: Matthew and Dean aren't quite smart enough to talk about this movie, but you can be assured that you will smile while listening to this, and if not you can draw some complaints with inky-black alien spunk and send them to hosts@libertystreetgeek.net. Enjoy!

If you want to hear smart people discuss this movie - you should check out decipher Sci-Fi's take on it. The even talked to Ted Chiang on one of their episodes. Check out the link: http://www.decipherscifi.com/

Are champions of Near Dark suffering from a chronic case of nostalgia, or is this horror/western blend thought-provoking enough to take gum-deep? Matthew liked it less than he assumed he would based on the love it has gotten around the block, and Dean thinks that this movie would be much flatter without the great, late Bill Paxton. Does Near Dark measure up, or is it simply a cool horror flick with a silly ending?

Matthew and Dean oscillate between absurd, accent-laden editorializing, and truly attempting to feel Bram Stoker's Dracula in all its glorious melodrama. This movie is not about the book by the titular author, but if you can get past that and see BSD for what it is - a dark and seductive fairytale with powerful, memorable visuals, and great performances sans Keanu (relax we love him anyway) - you will surely have a good movie watching experience.

Much like Louis and Lestat slake their thirst on their human herd, Matthew and Dean bite deep into this delectable tale of gothic horror from the one and only Anne Rice. Vampires offer plenty to talk about, and plenty to theorize over: Why people are so fascinated by these beautiful corpses? Matthew calls "Interview" the gold standard of vampire fiction (film). Dean called it a collection of scenes that may be greater than the sum of its parts. One thing is for sure - there is plenty to talk about especially with this being LSG Media's first vampire flick covered in almost 200 episodes. What were we waiting for? What are you waiting for? Push play and let the words course through your ears.

Our glorious hosts say lots about “The Big Lebowski”, but if you are looking for objective criticism of this Cohen brother’s classic consider yourself warned. This week's episode contains only high-praise. It has often been said - and admitted by the Cohen brothers - that the plot doesn’t really matter, but if you take a minute to think about the Bunny kidnapping/vacation dynamic it adds another layer of comedy (and good storytelling) to a hilarious film. Dean calls this his favorite comedy, but Matthew isn’t quite ready to make that claim. Hop on and listen to them break down all your favorite parts, and remember - they use a lot of cuss words… dude.

Does American Psycho deserve more of a look than it may have gotten in the past...? Spoiler: Dean and Matthew think so. There is a much more interesting story being told through the commentary on consumerism. Join the lads as they explore the vapid nature of these wealthy socialites who are so similar that it is no surprise that they constantly mistake the identities of the people around them.
