We are back with our second edition of the newly re-named MovieGuys.org Podcast! From here on out we will be referred to as the “Intermission” podcast. This week we discuss the new trailer for Homefront, Josh thinks Star Wars is set in present time, and Guy declares 2015 to be the most “Blockbusterous” summer of all.
This Week in the Lives of the Movieguys
Josh considers running over two children as they were playing in the middle of the road. It’s as if Josh thinks that they should play somewhere else, or that their parental units supervise them in some fashion? How unreasonable Josh, for shame. Craig see two children, likely the same ones, playing on the cart corral in the Walmart parking lot. Craig’s wife actually has the nerve to tell them to stop! Can you believe that? One of those kids should have slapped some sense into her. Guy goes to a rock concert and gets his balls rocked off. Sadly he has yet to find them.
The trailer for Homefront was watched by all, and it will be a “dandy”. James Franco makes meth, and Jason Statham is going to Josh’s ass. Josh doesn’t buy into the premise of the film, and Guy doesn’t want to see a little girl die, long story…
Guy declares that 2015 the best year for summer blockbusters as they gear up for the new Avengers movie and Jurassic World! Craig is not as excited as he expects them to be in 3D, duh. He doesn’t like 3D and thinks that them filming it in an extra dimension will ruin the 2D experience. Josh stares at Craig as Craig explains the difference between Dolby and Real-D 3D, and Josh complains about wearing glasses.
Star Wars and Other Space Stuff
Craig starts the discussion about the proper Star Wars viewing order, and it is discovers that the Movieguys don’t know how to count. The Machete order is discussed and everybody disagrees and has a “better” way. The guys have mixed feeling about J.J Abrams, but they have more faith in him than in anyone. Guy is looking forward to the standalone anthology films to see if Yoda was a tadpole as a baby or not.
Is Star Wars set in present time?
Josh proposes a theory that the Star Wars films actually took place in present day. What!? Josh you crazy scamp. Craig calls bullshit, and Josh tries to explain (not well). In ET he sees the Yoda stuffed animal and points and says “home”. Craig points out maybe ET is just old, and Josh retracts his theory. But they were in the same universe.
Craig read in a paper magazine and according to them if the tethers break during a spacewalk, there is a system in place the will stabilize you and jet you back to the station. But if there is no one at the station to catch you, you will live long enough to watch the sun rise and set 5 times, which turns out is about 7 hours. Then you die a horrible death. Unless you get launched out of orbit, then you die much sooner. So if Sandra Bullock has one of these, George catches her and then they space bang.
Josh has gotten his fill of reboots over the past few years, and with Guy getting excited over another Transformers movie, Josh is burnt out. Also, should Universal be rebooting all of these monster movies? The guys say yes, no, no, doesn’t care. It is decided that if you didn’t watch the original then you can’t criticize the reboot. Craig says some stupid things about the Hulk movies and Guy and Josh put him in his place. Corey just wants everyone to leave his classic movies alone. Somehow, this leads Craig to a rant about movie ratings as there seems to be a discrepancy among some PG-13 and R rated movies. This is due to the MPAA’s large amount of bias. Craig believes that the British film rating system is much better, though more complicated. After everyone not understanding how the British system actually works, it is decided that it is not for us American people. Then Craig talks about black guys playing video games.
Dragon Boat Racing
Corey confused Chinese Dragon boats with Viking ships. Corey cares not, he will take whatever boat they give him and paddle it to victory. He just has to take back his Viking costume now though. Corey signed Guy up to row with him without his knowledge, but he knows now so we’re cool.
