Episode 35: For The Love Of Spock (2016)

 for the love of spockWhen Leonard Nimoy passed away in February of 2015, a world mourned his passing. Without him, we would not have had one of the most iconic charactgers in the 20th and (so far) the 21st centuries: Spock. Jeff, Chad, and Buddy will introduce you to a fascinating, heart-warming look at the life of Leonard Nimoy, both professional and personal, in this touching documentary directed by his son, Adam Nimoy. This documentary also features interviews with William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy (via archive footage), George Takai, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, director and writer Nicholas Meyer, Catherine Hicks, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, J.J. Abrams, Jim Parsons, Mayim Bialik, Jason Alexander, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Neil deGrasse Tyson. It's a tribute to an integral part of the trio's childhood, and likely yours as well! Plus, at the end of the episode, the guys talk about the next pair of films they're going to review, two films a bit too appropriate for today's political climate!

Episode 34: Trekkies (1997)

 trekkiesIt was 1966, and this new program called "Star Trek" premiered on TV. Who would have known then that it would have turned out to be one of the biggest franchises in all of entertianment? And one of the first to really influence people's daily lives, giving them a future to look forward to and to try to make happen? Who would also have known that it would begin the phenomenon that is cosplaying? Buddy, Chad, and Jeff take a look at a love-letter to the emphatic, sometimes over-the-top, cult of personality that is Star Trek fandom as celebrated in the 1997 documentary "Trekkies!" Directed by Roger Nygard, and featuring interviews with William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Majel Barrett Roddenberry, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Wil Wheaton, Kate Mulgrew, Robert Beltran, Roxann Dawson, Tim Russ, Robert Picardo, and NASA Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, it's an honest look at a fandom that has spawned followers, casual, to devoted, to a little scary. Nevertheless, it's a beautiful tribute to a story that continues today!

Episode 33: Time Bandits (1981)

timebanditsAs if time travel isn't strange enough, unleash Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin, from Monty Python, on a time travel script and what do you get? 1981's "Time Bandits!" This is also an interesting episode, as it's the first time one member of the podcast experienced a movie he absolutely just didn't like, so we have a truly split decision on whether the film is worth watching or not! Starring David Rappaport, Kenny Baker, Craig Warnock, a cast of little-person actors, Ralph Richardson, and David Warner, you have an interesting film. With cameos from Michael Palin, Shelley Duvall, Sean Connery, John Cleese, Ian Holm, Peter Vaughan, Katherine Helmond, and Jim Broadbent, you get a *very* interesting film. Unfortunately, in this case, interesting doesn't mean enjoyable for one of the crew. Listen in to find out which one gave this film a big thumbs down! And, as always, the filmic trio lets you in on episodes 34 and 35, coming up mid-February!

Episode 32: Time After Time (1979)

 timeafterA favorite time-travel film for the Buddy and Jeff, and a fun introduction to Chad, it's 1979's Nicholas Meyer writen and directed "Time After Time!" This film stars Malcolm McDowel, Mary Steenburgen in her 2nd film outing ever, and the incomperable David Warner. It's a fun romp through time, changes in social conventions, time travel, and, of course, love. It also features an extremely young Corey Feldman in his first-ever movie role... see if you can spot him! While a little dated, this film holds up well enough that, coming in March 2017, ABC television is premiering a series based on this film! Impress your friends with your knowledge of the series when it airs by watching the source material ahead of time!
