This week the guys get down and dirty with the movie EVENT: Star Trek Into Darkness. Is it a Star Trek Movie? A comic book movie? How is it as a movie movie? It’s a hard one to classify, and we come at it from all three angles. BE CAREFUL–SPOILERS!
But first we check in with Bob and his still new iPhone 5 and see how he’s liking it.
We finish with a new segment: Bob’s Mini Movie Reviews. Bob gives us the mini reviews he posts on social media, shares some of the buzz he generates, and rebuts the responses.
Bob’s back! And we get the lowdown on some recent movies he’s seen–the Great Gatsby and Iron Man 3. Smartphones come up, as Logan reviews his new HTC One and Bob decides which work phone to get.
Now that Logan’s had a chance to play some of the games we talked about in our last video games episode, we take the opportunity to consider the extent to which video games can be a creative medium on par with entertainment that sometimes aspires to art.
Logan is joined today by life coach Devin Martin (@FLOW_Coach), who swings by and talks about how to figure out what you really want and how to get there. Basically, how to kick more ass in your life. He gives us three things you can do to start getting on track now.
And along the way, we compare smartphones and talk Danny Boyle films (including Trance), the Singularity, Vikings, and duck bacon.
Get ready for season 3 of Game of Thrones with us! We bring back Shannon to cover everything you need to know to be ready for this Sunday’s premiere. Ever get confused about plotlines, backstory, or characters? Shannon’s there for us with all the geeking out you need to get back in a Westeros state of mind.
(Of course, if, for some reason you don’t watch Game of Thrones or aren’t caught up, you can skip this section and catch up with us for our mini obsessions at 1:03:40.)
We also hit on Bob’s very Gerard Butler week, Spring Breakers, polyphasic sleep(!), bacon and eggs, and Softies.
Today we hear Bob’s personal list of upcoming movies to get you set up with what you need to be watching for the next few months. Is Bob still in on the Fast and Furious and Hangover franchises? Who’s the Nickelback of directing? Listen to find out!
On the way to talking movies, though, we tackle a topic that definitely brings out the differences between Logan’s non-kooky libertarianism and Bob’s independent liberal lean: wealth disparity and inequality. But through the smoke we do finally agree on a couple Practically Ideal steps to take.
Bob returns! We get his response to last week’s episode when Shannon performed his cohosting duties. And Logan unveils his Tivo Rankings list: which shows to watch first. Along the way, hear about the FX Zone, the history of the reigning top comedy, and whether House of Cards is really TV.
We also give you the bare minimum you need to know about the sequester, talk Tim Ferris’s 4 Hour Body, and Crysis 3.
