If there's one type of movies that EVERYBODY loves, it's video game movies. Does Warcraft fall into the same pit that Uwe Boll has been stuck in since 2002? Find out when we review the latest blockbuster this summer. We also have some news to talk about including yet another remake of an action franchise, starring a veteran action actor and how the boxoffice fared this weekend. Then we spin the wheel of Trek to find an episode to watch next week before talking about DC's first couple weeks after being reborn. Then to close out the show we take a few trivia quizzes online from Sporcle.com. Turn up your air conditioner and turn up The Basement Vagrants Podcast.
We're back to review another movie that's failing in theaters! No, not Xmen Apocalypse, we're talking about The Nice Guys starring Gladiator and Drive. Dubya joins us yet again to discuss early summer's big comedy and leave right in the middle of the show. Thanks pal! We also talk Rock on the Range and all the amazing (and not so amazing) bands that showed up. Plus Recker reviews some of his favorite movies on Bluray and we play a brand new trivia game. If you miss this episode, it sure wouldn't be... NICE... fuck my life...
We just couldn't wait until the next episode to bring you come comic book discussion. Schweitzer and Recker present this mini-episode where we talk about two of the more controversial comics of the day: DC Universe Rebirth and Steve Rogers Captain America #1. We discuss the issues, their futures and why people are so upset. Let us know what you think on our Facebook page or on Twitter (@vagrantspodcast). Thanks for listening!
Will a civil war be started on the Basement Vagrants Podcast? Find out which one of us didn't like the new Captain America movie was much as the rest. We review Marvel's latest plan for complete financial control of the world as well as our Mexican Movie Standoff films from last week (well, most of them). Recker and Schweitzer also talk about the final issue of the Batman/TMNT comic crossover and where DC goes from here. We also listen to some kickass music and play a whole new trivia game. We're 3/4 away from the big 100 where we're probably not going to do anything special because it's just an arbitrary number, but hurrah nonetheless. We hope you enjoy it!
We're about halfway through the James Bond movies and thing are getting silly. We talk about 1974's The Man with the Golden Gun, the only Bond movie with an odd number of nipples. Schweitzer regales us with stories from the Calgary Expo and tells us which celebrities he met and which ones now have restraining orders against him. We also discuss why the Batman: The Killing Joke trailer is just a tad disappointing, why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is better than we ever thought it would be and what other Marvel movie was a surprise hit for us recently. Be sure to stick around for trivia as we praise our God once more by playing the Leonard Maltin Movie Game. Oh, and Mexican Movie Standoff as well. It's a jam packed episode that you wont want to miss.
Ho-lee FACK boys, it's another Basement Vagrants and we're talking some TV this time. Well, not technically TV since they're both Netflix shows... but you CAN watch them on TV... I don't know, but we're discussing Trailer Park Boys season 10 and Daredevil season 2. Two very different shows but both very entertaining. Recker and Schweitzer also talk about what they've been reading in comics lately including one series that has hit the skids as of late. Plus we've got news including more Avatars and cell phone chicanery in theaters. All capped off with trivia and a new segment where we try to fix movies that are fundamentally broken. Grab a bottle of swish and some zesty mordant chips and settle into the shed for some great discussion.
Everyone has already complained about this Batman v Superman picture so we're throwing our complaining hats in the ring. Everyone hates it, but do we? You probably know the answer to that. Then after our voices heal Recker talks Tarentino and Godzilla (the two aren't related) and then top it all off with some great trivia. It's a shorter episode so you have no excuse not to listen.
We've got a super episode for you as we take a look back at the classic Superman franchise. Do they hold up? Which is the worst? Best? All these questions and more will be answered as we discuss the cinematic history of one of the greatest super heroes. Then, to atone for his lost in Trivia, Dubya reviews the Adam Sandler classic Pixels. Ooh boy. We've also got a brand new trivia game to try out so be sure to stick it out until the end. Our Batman vs Superman review is coming next week, but until then enjoy episode 71. It su.... oh did I already do the "super" pun? Shit... just listen alright.
Sickness and disease may have put us out of commission for a couple weeks, but nothing can kill The Basement Vagrants Podcast. We return with a vengeance and discuss the controversial trailer for the Ghostbusters remake, or sequel.... whatever it is. We briefly recap the Oscar winners and revel in our mutual apathy. Then, the meat of the show, Bubs and Recker review the new horror movie The Witch, then we delve into the 1973 classic Bond flick Live and Let Die. All this plus more discussion, jokes and trivia await you in episode 70 of The Basement Vagrants Podcast.
It's a split decision this week on The Basement Vagrants Podcast. Schweitzer will be reviewing Deadpool while Bubs and Recker will be reviewing Hail, Caesar! Dubya will be reviewing.... nothing. But we all share the pain of watching Diamonds are Forever, one of the, shall we say... lesser Bond films. After that Dubya and Recker catch up on some TV shows, we talk Megadeth's new album Dystopia and then take part in some personalized trivia, with dangerous consequences. Tee hee, it's episode 69 (despite what I say in the opening)
