This week on the Intermission Podcast:
Need for Speed
Heading into the theater for Need for Speed, I think we all had pretty low expectations. However, we were all pleasantly surprised at the final product. The movie was entertaining, had some fun Easter eggs to other car movies (American Graffiti, Bullitt), and just felt like it did the video game justice. All in all it seemed like a modern twist on a classic car movie.
It wasn’t all good though. There were some gimmicks that seemed to only be added for the sake of 3-D. Which you probably wouldn’t notice unless you were watching in 3-D. There were also some crashes where cars spontaneously erupted into flames, but honestly what car movie hasn’t done this?
Corey Reviews 3 Days to Kill
Up next, Corey discusses his viewing of 3 Days to Kill. He wouldn’t come out and say it was bad, but he sure hinted at it. Overall he just seemed to lack excitement about the movie, and recommends it for a rental.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Drives a Tank for Charity
First up, watch this video. I’ll wait…
Ok, so here’s what we know:
- Arnold Schwarzenegger gets to smash things with his personal tank. Yes, personal.
- Apparently if you have $10 you can enter to win a day with Arnold
- If you win, you will also get to smash things with a tank like Arnold
Buy your tickets here, it’s for a good cause!
While we won’t be reviewing Cosmos every week, we thought we should at least discuss our reception of the first episode. Here’s a hint, we really liked it.
Fantastic 4 Reboot Cancelled, Or was it?
Corey and Guy get all excited about the Fantastic 4 reboot being cancelled. Little did they know, it was all just a rumor and fox has confirmed that they are moving forward with the reboot. Guy is crushed.
Captain America vs Superman/Batman Turns into a Marvel vs DC debate
By now I’m sure everyone has heard that Captain America 2 is slated to release on the same day as the Superman Batman flick. For some reason, Guy thinks that Batman will beat Captain America. This obviously led to the debate over who wins, DC or Marvel. Personally, I think the winner is pretty clear, but Guy thinks DC would be the victor. He doesn’t help his case much by bringing up Aqua-man.
Bullet: Staring Danny Trejo
Yet another fine action flick starring the legend, Danny Trejo.
Hang Men on Discovery
So Discovery is launching their latest reality show, Hang Men. It’s a show following the guys that climb communication towers and ultimately make civilized life possible. Also, their balls are huge.
The following video isn’t a clip from Hang Men, or an ad spot for Hang Men, but it is a video of some guys climbing a 1700ft transmission tower. It had me sweating just watching.
DJ Snake and Lil’ Jon – Turn Down for What
Feast your eyes on the greatest music video we’ve seen recently. It’s basically a party video where a guy, well, humps things. It’s hilariously awesome and reminds us of something that would have been featured on Beavis and Butthead.
Kenny vs Spenny to return on Netflix
Finally, we discuss the return of Kenny vs Spenny. No, they aren’t coming back to TV, but they are currently trying to get Netflix to pick them up as a “Made for Netflix” series. While I think it’s awesome that they are making a comeback, I’m not convinced Netflix should be the next TV channel.
Haven’t seen Kenny vs Spenny? You’re missing out. There are several full episodes you can watch on YouTube now.
