Recorded live from our booth at Indy PopCon! Here’s our final Indy PopCon 2014 episode. It’s filled with the favorite movies and TV shows of all the people who came and talked to us at our booth. We met and got to talk to so many awesome people at the convention that we had to give all the con attendees their own episode.
We also took some time at the top of the episode to talk about how we felt about the convention and recounted our favorite moments from the weekend.
Recorded live from our booth at Indy PopCon! We had some down time at Indy PopCon on Sunday. The crowds were dying down and people were hustling to buy things last minute from vendors. So we decided to record an extended potpourri episode.
Topics covered in this episode include our discussion about X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jon Favreau’s Chef, Adore and A.C.O.D. We also go into a healthy tangent about Interstellar’s tagline and what it might imply about the movie.
Recorded live from our booth at Indy PopCon! This episode features all of our interviews with Podcasters, Vendors and YouTubers at the convention. We are incredibly grateful to have had the chance to meet so many amazing and creative people. All of their links are in these notes. Please check them out!
Also in this episode, we kickoff our Summer project for the podcast! Summer of Sandler begins here with a review of Adam Sandler’s latest movie, Blended. From here, we’ll go back chronologically and examine Adam Sandler’s entire career. For now, enjoy our interviews and our Blended review.
I liked it. A few really great laugh out loud moments and some good/disturbing "what the fuck has happened to the US" moments. The Giuliani scenes at the end are as advertised.Amongst all that, however, is a pretty sweet father-daughter story. It feels like they knew they had lightning in a bottle with Maria Bakalova and had Borat take a bit of a b […]
Much, much better than I expected it to be. It's a good palate cleanser after a couple of the other later Friday movies. The violence and gore effects were good. The kills were pretty inventive and (aside from some nearly incomprehensible quick cutting action) executed well.I didn't like the sort of "humanity" the movie gives Jason. He wo […]
Surprisingly not bad. I really like the way the movie incorporates both legends. I kind of wish it did more to expand Freddy's use of Jason to help bring him (Freddy) back into his victims' consciousness.The movie has plenty of super fun gore effects and some cool kills throughout it. The fighting between J-man and Fred-dog (I'm sorry) is fun […]
It's kind of insane to me how much of this movie actually kind of worked for me. The early 2000s low budget Syfy original movie aesthetic was kind of charming in some instances and Jason's first kill on the ship is really cool.It tried to return the franchise to its cheesy fun roots but ultimately doesn't really stick the "fun" part […]
Yikes. So I watched the unrated cut and, to its credit, there is some really good gore and body horror effects work in this movie.But that's about all this movie has going for it. It's a Friday the 13th movie in name only, which isn't even the case since New Line didn't have the rights to the name, apparently. So I've commended Frida […]
