Cult Film Club

Welcome to another exciting episode of the Cult Film Club.  This week, Shawn, Jaime and I are discussing the 80s martial arts/musical classic, Berry Gordy’s The Last Dragon.

Last Dragon

We go over the story and the awesome characters. We discuss all the things we love about the movie. We talk about Sho-Nuff and Eddie Arcadian. We talk about Bruce Leroy and special guest cameos by William H Macy and Chaz Palminteri.  We spend an hour essentially having nerd orgasms all over this movie.  Join us, won’t you?

When you’ve finished listening to the episode, check out 30 Things We Love About The Last Dragon.

Nerd Lunch Episode 129: Creating the Worst. Movie. EVER.

Posted in movies, podcast, pop culture with tags , , on April 29, 2014 by Paxton

Nerd Lunch Podcast

My Jacksonville compatriot, Robert Zerbe, from To the Escape Hatch returns to the show this week. And this week, we do something a little different. This week we are doing a little Nerd Lunch Theater.  CT takes on the role of Ned Lunch whose movie mogul father has given him the job of creating a hit movie.  Unfortunately Ned Lunch is an idiot and his father has assigned Jeeg, Robert and I as producers to help make this movie.  Only, the three of us are out to sabotage the movie because we are all jealous of Ned.  So the three of us try to convince Ned to make…the Worst. Movie. EVER.

Watch as Jeeg, Robert and I shoot down all of Ned’s good ideas and suggest actors in drag to play the lead female roles. Watch us also suggest other terrible ideas for writers, directors and many, many more terrible cast members. I think we even delve into some awful, awful decisions for the soundtrack. We truly do create the worst movie ever.

And between you, me and the entire Internet, I think this is easily one of our best shows.  Top 3, at the very least.  Give it a listen.  You won’t be disappointed.

Nerd Lunch Podcast

Jay from Sexy Armpit returns this week in the place of a still missing CT for a new topic we are calling “Kill Me Now!”.

All of us discuss horrible movies that we were forced to see by significant others. Stuff that we never would have willingly stepped foot in a theater and watched without ulterior motives. Expect to hear me rail about the godless awfulness of Sex and the City 2 as well as a slew of other rom-coms, Broadway movie adaptations and costume dramas. We discuss it all. Nerd to Dos include Captain America 2, Bates Motel and Veronica Mars.

The Atomic Geeks Podcast reaches episode 250 with surprisingly little casualties

Posted in podcast with tags , , on April 17, 2014 by Paxton

The Atomic Geeks

The Nerd Lunch Podcast’s big brother podcast, The Atomic Geeks, are celebrating 5 years of podcasting awesomeness. After 5 years of Geek News (well, almost 5 years of that), Atomic Picks, Meat and Potatoes, Crying Out Loud and reviewing movies at gunpoint they have finally clawed their way to their 250th episode.  And with only a few casualties along the way (Andrew “Twilight lovin'” Bloom and their dignities).

TAG250

CT has spent the better part of the last 6 months combing through the Geeks’ archive and creating the greatest clip show in broadcasting history.  And then he recruited Mark Dury to interview each of the Geeks and talk about the last 5 years and present all of these awesome clips.  Expect to hear Downs’ talking about Boxwood Brewing, Christian talking about his terrible food analogies and metaphors and Bloom’s unconditional love of Twilight.

It’s a massively entertaining show and if you are even the slightest fan of the Atomic Geeks you owe it to yourself to listen to this 2+ hour retrospective extravaganza.  It’s got EVERYTHING.  So click one of the images above to go check out the Atomic Geeks’ 250th episode celebration.

Congrats guys on the 5 years.  We hope you get at least 5 more out of it.

 

Lots of Podcast goodness for you to consume

Several episodes of my podcasts have been posted lately.

Teen Wolf Bites

Episode 125 of the Nerd Lunch Podcast was posted last week to much acclaim. It features the final week in our Atomic Weeks celebration in which we are celebrating the Atomic Geeks’ 250th episode by having each member of the show as guests.  This final week has Digio as our guest and we are talking about breakfast cereals. We talk about our favorite cereals, mascots and commercials. We even take a moment to create our own cereal based on a pop culture property. It’s a fun episode, check it out on iTunes, Stitcher or listen to it online here.

Cult Film Club vs Nerd Lunch

This week, episode 126 features a crossover between Cult Film Club and the Nerd Lunch Podcast.  You may remember that all of us met up in Atlanta last month.  While we spent our time eating and drinking our way through the city, we did actually sit down and record a podcast.  And it has now gone live.  It’s our annual Summer Preview episode where we all talk about movies that we are excited to see in the coming months.  It’s a lot of fun.  Check it out on iTunes, Stitcher or listen to it online here.

Harold Ramis

And, in a bit of synergy, Shawn, Jaime and I have finally started recording Season 2 of the Cult Film Club podcast. The first episode is up in which we pay tribute to the great Harold Ramis by looking at three of his most famous and cult-y flicks; Stripes, Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day.  So click the RIP image above and listen to the awesome Episode 13 of The Cult Film Club Podcast.

 

Oh yes, and this is my 800th post on the Cavalcade.  You’re welcome, Internet.
