Welcome to the new and improved 105th edition of The Intermission Podcast! How is it new and improved you ask? Well, it’s a new episode, and we recently upgraded some of our sound equipment. So it is/should be improved! On that note, please bear with us for the next few episodes as we learn how to use said new equipment. We totally have no idea what we’re doing.
It’s been a week since the great Pizza Roll eating contest of 2016, and we’re happy to report Craig and Guy are both alive and well. It took them a while to purge the rolls from their systems, but rest assured, the transactions were made.
Before recording today the crew went down to Silver Screen VII and watched 10 Cloverfield Lane (henceforth to be known as XCL. Spread the word). It’s not Cloverfield 2 dammit! Or is it? It is not. Probably. Craig is a communist and doesn’t like John Goodman, but he still liked XCL. We try to show how it is linked to Cloverfield, and we also show how it is a movie that stands on its own. We tried to avoid any specific spoilers, but there might be some minor ones in there, so beware.
On the subject of J. J. Abrams movies, talk around the watercooler is that he’s got two very interesting films in the works. I say interesting because they are based on two very popular video games, Halflife and Portal.
There was a new trailer for Captain America: Civil War this week. The big news there is that Spider-man made his appearance at the end of the trailer. There’s a lot of discussion about his suit, and whether it’s cool or not. It’s also cool/sucks that he has man made web shooters. Whatever.
Squatty Potty update: Guy didn’t get Craig his Squatty Potty yet. Also, everyone else is considering getting a Squatty Potty.
After that there is a smattering of topics including Fuller House, The EA curse, Suzanne Somers, Trailer Park Boys, Daredevil, and Guy on Twitter (@guyboymankid).
Josh watched the second installment of the Divergent series, Insurgent. Craig gets a headache when we talk about how Divergent is totally different from The Hunger Games. They are practically not the same thing.
After a little more random chatter, we get to the finale of the episode, our favorite movies from the year 2005:
- Walk the Line
- Lord of War
- Mr. and Mrs. Smith
- A History of Violence
