The Obsessive Viewer Podcast – Ep 30 – A Nerdy Conversation with IndyPopCon’s Chase Kahlo

Click here to subscribe!

Click here to subscribe!

Here’s the latest ep of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast! I’m really excited about this episode. This week we had an in-studio guest for the first time since our friend Greg helped us kick off the podcast in June! Our guest was Chase Kahlo, one of the guys behind Indy PopCon (the brand new pop culture convention coming to Indianapolis in May 2014).

We had so much fun recording with Chase and we’ll probably have him back as the convention nears. And when I say he’s our first “in-studio” guest, I mean he’s our first guest in the makeshift studio I converted my brother’s sunroom into and use to record in while he’s at work. But all the same, it’s a great episode and I hope you like it. Continue reading

Mike’s Trailer Tuesday: Community – Season 5 (2014)

Season_Five_promo_pic

Air Date: Thursday, January 2, 2014

Yesterday NBC released a trailer for Season 5 of Community

It’s no secret that Community has had its fair share of struggles and controversy in the past. It’s never had impressive ratings (or average ratings for that matter,) there have been issues with cast members (notably Chevy Chase,) it lost its showrunner and creator at the end of the third season, and all of these issues culminated in a disappointing season 4. In fact, disappointing doesn’t really describe it well enough. So one can’t really be blamed for looking forward to Season five of Community with more than a bit of apprehension. Continue reading

The Month in Movies: November 2013

I had a mediocre movie-watching month last month. But that’s secondary to the fact that I have eviscerated my previous movie-watching numbers. With a few weeks left in 2013,  I have already had the best year in terms of  movies watched since I started tracking my viewing habits in 2007.

Check back in the new year for my final stats. As for now, here is a breakdown of the best and worst of the movies I viewed in the penultimate month of 2013. As always, don’t forget to follow me and the blog around the internet with the links below.

Bond 50: Part VI – Moonraker (1979) & For Your Eyes Only (1981)

Part6

Here it is (FINALLY), Part VI of my 12-part review of the James Bond 50th Anniversary blu-ray box set. I apologize for the extreme lateness for this entry. I actually watched these movies a while ago and just now got around to writing them up. I just got busy with other things. I’ll do better in the future.

With this entry in the series, I have officially reached the halfway point of my journey through the James Bond franchise. As you’ll see below, this pairing of Moonraker and For Your Eyes Only carried with it both good and bad things. Yet I still enjoyed myself and I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts on them.

Of course, you can read my past Bond 50 posts here. And follow me around the internet with the links below.

Mike’s Trailer Tuesday: X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

xmen229013201326

Release Date: May 23, 2014

Director: Bryan Singer

Written By: Simon Kinberg (screenplay and story), Matthew Vaughn (story) & Jane Goldman (story)

This summer the two studios which own rights to Marvel characters and aren’t named Marvel will duke it out at the box office. Sony will release the hotly anticipated (and lately scrutinized) Amazing Spider-Man 2. Without a major Marvel studios release, the only competition for Amazing 2 will be Bryan Singer’s return to the helm of the X-Men franchise in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Early excitement would indicate DoFP is the more likely to win the superhero box office battle this summer.

Note: Come back Thursday for a special Thursday edition of Trailer Tuesday for the release of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. Continue reading
