Compared to last year’s extravagant event, this year’s Oscar party hosted by TheOneRing.net was a much more casual and low key event. That didn’t stop us from putting on our wannabe-red-carpet outfits and braving the traffic in Los Angeles! Apparently, all the streets are closed when the celebrities are strutting their way down the red carpet. This year’s party was held at the Cat & Fiddle pub and restaurant, just a few blocks away from the ceremony.
Everything I need to know I learned from Sandra Bullock.
As you may or may not have heard on the podcast, I had a weird dream a few weeks ago that Sandra Bullock was following me around telling me what to do.
Mostly she was telling me things from Miss Congeniality (that film is full of life lessons!) But, it got me thinking about all of her films. I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time, and I think part of that is because I never know what she’s going to turn up in next. Chick flick? Many. Action film? Several. Crime investigation? Been there, done that. Time travel? Sort of. Science fiction? Hells yes.
I realised there are many lessons to be had from all of her films. I set myself a challenge to watch ALL (or as many as I can track down) of her films and report back on the useful things I learned from them.
Our next live Google Hangout show is already next Monday, March 3, 2014 at 8pm PST/11pm PST. It is going to be an epic game of movie lip sync battle. What is that you ask? Tune in to find out . . . hopefully, we don’t create a giant mess. Either way, I’m sure it will be hilarious.
Watch the last show below when we did a lil’ show and tell with our most prized fandom objects.
Now, I know this is a controversial topic and most of all, a very controversial pairing (though most people seem to accept the Gimli and Legolas shipping a lot more) but I loved Tauriel in The Hobbit and I loved that Kili had a huge crush on her.
Let’s face it. As much as we love the original book, The Hobbit was a bro show. Which is fine for the book and nothing will ever change or re-write that classic piece of literature but in my growing adult years, I find that accepting the fluidity of media makes my life that much easier.
Ever wonder what it sounds like when three girls are watching Disney movies while drinking sparkling wine? Well, here at the Defective Geeks podcast we are constantly striving to make your dreams come true. Listen to the Lady Geeks make awkward, tipsy commentaries while playing a drinking game to Pocahontas and fail at not being offensive.
The third time is a third charm for the reimagining of Carrie! First evolved from a Stephen King novel into a film in 1976, and back to film again in 2013, Carrie just keeps coming! Carrie is a remake of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom. To get you ready for Carrie’s third debut into the world, we have compiled a list of memorable moments from the original Carrie to help jog your memory… and maybe scare you a little bit.
Find out how to win a copy of Carrie below!
Do I really need to give you reasons to why you should watch The Wolverine? First of all, it’s the Wolverine. Second of all, it’s Hugh Jackman as the Wolverine. I can’t imagine you’ll need more reasons than that! The Wolverine’s plot is set some time after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, and Logan is in hiding and ridden with guilt for having been forced to kill Jean Grey. An old acquaintance from Japan seeks him out, forcing him out of his isolation and the Wolverine finds himself playing the ‘hero’ again despite his best efforts to live a quieter life.
