Podcast2013-web-image

 

In this episode Gizzy B is joined by the lovely Julia! The lady geeks discuss all the upcoming sequels (Beetlejuice 2, John Wick 2, Blade Runner 2, oh my) along with excitement and hope for the Power Rangers reboot. Also, Stephen Amell is brawling with wrestlers which makes Gizzy B a little too happy.

Awesome (Awful) Sequels I’m Looking Forward To

As the title of our last podcast suggest and as I am sure most of you have noticed already — it is the Age of Sequels. Or reboots. Or re-hashing of movies from 20 years ago that Hollywood thinks they can make new cash with. Whatever you want to call it, it’s happening right now.

They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it’s too late.” Except they don’t unravel the mystery, being the mystery is TIME TRAVEL and no one seems interested in that.

Lessons:
1) Time travel breaks my head
2) If you’re postbox turns into a tiny TARDIS, you won’t even think twice about it
3) Look both ways before crossing the street.

I’m going to discuss spoilers, so you’ve been warned!

MOVIEW REVIEW: 47 Ronin

47Ronin

47 Ronin is a fantastical retelling of history, based on the legend of a group of samurai who avenged their master’s  honor. The movie combines the legend of the actual 47 Ronin, a little re-writing and a dash of Japanese mythology. Overall, I found that it was a fun ride and a very pretty movie to watch — the backdrop and costumes for this film was gorgeous.

Yes, 47 Ronin has gotten blasted by critics, but for me, there is something to be said for this movie even existing at all in Hollywood.
