Podcast Reaction: Avatar Edition

Avatar-Sucks

This week on the podcast, the topic of Avatar came out, and not the one that brought us the Last Airbender.

Wait, why am I doing these again?  I don’t know.  I have enough problems when I’m part of the show.  I can use my desktop for better audio but no video, or my Kindle Fire for video but sometimes spotty audio.  Back to reactions…

Ryan, it seems, was quite enthusiastic to defend James Cameron and the movie Avatar. But really, do we need four sequels to this movie?  Furthermore, how do we measure success for a film like this?

Podcast Reaction: No Terminator?!? WTF?!? Edition

On this weeks podcast the Geeks unveiled a List Of Truth™ about time travel movies.  Ranking “some of the better” time travel movies.  Who defined what were “some of the better”?  I’ll agree that most of the list contains good to great movies (I would not include Men In Black III in those categories, and I haven’t seen Looper, I know, I know…), but it seems to contain some glaring omissions to me.  Find them after the cut.

I haven't actually seen this movie, but its already ahead of "Krull" in my mind.
I haven’t actually seen this movie, but its already ahead of “Krull” in my mind.

Background Geek of the Week: The Stuff of Nightmares

H._R._Giger
You’re terrified aren’t you?  No, he isn’t the man hiding under your bed right now waiting for you to go to sleep….but he has created images that haunt your dreams all the same!  Who is this terrifying creature?  He isn’t the devil.  He isn’t a dark wizard.  He isn’t even the bike shop owner that molested poor, pitiful Dudley in Diff’rent Strokes.  No.  This man is our Background Geek of the Week!

True Sequels We Need to See!

shiffle

Back in Episode 21 of Gabbing Geek, the Geeks played a game of “Sequel, Reboot, or LET IT DIE!” In that now legendary segment (my mom liked it), we offered our not so humble opinions on how to manage some prominent Geek film properties.  A movie like Goonies, for instance, could be rebooted for a new generation, continued with the original kids now parents to a next generation of Goonies, or Let the franchise die (which is somewhat incompatible with their motto…) Some franchises were destined to be continued, yet along the way the wheels fell off the bus.  Let’s make up for Hollywood’s sins and green light a few films in the PURE SEQUEL category.
