There is a little bit of movies that we sometimes overlook. No, it isn’t that your date keeps trying the hole in the popcorn trick and that you are starting to get worried about her. It’s the poster. The first thing you sometimes see about a movie. The thing that is supposed to emblazen upon your mind that this movie will be here eventually.
Some are amazing. Some are horrible. Some things are repeated ovvver and ovvver… so join in with the Somethings as we talk about movie poster tropes and themes that we have just seen too much.
Ok, here we go.
Ok look.. we’re not sorry.
We’re alone, in the house, we have the radio on and all of a sudden a song comes on – and what do the Somethings do? The Somethings sing where angels fear to hum. You know you have some song that makes you bop your head while the rest of the world snickers under their breath as to why you know the words.
The Somethings know the words. They’ll sing with you without judgement… ok, not much judgement.
Enjoy some guilty pleasures with us – ok, here we go!
Somethings like some bad cinema. We’ve made it known and we don’t apologize for it. We like enjoying some of the bad things that movies have done. There are a few actors out there though that did a movie, or are in a movie, or there are cutscenes spliced in of them from other movies.. and it is their final bow. Never to grace the screen again, they are left with a final acting legacy that is questionable at best and down right laughably embarrassing at worst.
This week – the Somethings take a look at Unfortunate Final Movies.
OK, here we go!
(Thanks to contest winner Josh for this week’s titlecard!)
The boys are heading to Westeros to a land filled with monsters and dragons and Kings and games and candy and unicorns an… derailing, sorry. This week, Rob and James have invited GoT savant Madison into the studio to discuss who we think will sit upon the Iron Throne when the fighting has stopped.. or at least the books have. From their various perspectives who will raise the flag high? Who will live? Who will die? The Somethings decide…
OK, here we go!
(Note: Our outro song can be found here: Game of Thrones Ultimate Birthday Rap)
We all love music.. at least the Somethings do – and for every band that goes on to sell multigazillion records, there are bands that have one song, sell some records – and fade into the oblivion. Now, you might go ‘But I know every song that Chumbawumba did, and they’re good dammit’ – you might be right, but sadly the rest of the world thinks they lived and died with Tubthumping. (fyi: Chumbawumba rules)
So this week – The Somethings are taking on – ONE. HIT. WONDERS. OOooooooooh!
Also – we would like to announce the winner of the SOMETHINGCONTEST – And that goes to the guy who entered every week and kicked some ass at making us laugh. That is Joshua Ungerleider who will be receiving SomethingSwag from us. Please drop us a line Josh, email@example.com
Please everybody congratulate and mock Josh mercilessly in the comments. More games are to come! Also, thank you to CS for this week’s graphic entry for the show!
How many times have you found yourself, maybe late at night, flipping through channels and you end up on a show you would never really admit that you watched? Now how many of those shows have you gone back for seconds on? Nobody in the SomethingStudio is going to judge that you know the price of everything down the meat aisle because you’ve watched Supermarket Sweep. We can’t mock you because you have invested a notable portion of your life to seeing every episode of Cleopatra 2525.
Why? Because we have lists just like that.
So join us won’t you and discover a wonderful world of what the Somethings do when nobody’s looking… WE MEAN TV, WEIRDOS!
You wanted it – you got it. THE WORLDS GREATEST SUPERTEAM!!!
Who are they you might ask – well they are the Avengers – and that’s up to debate really, but that’s not what we’re going for here.
We want you to take the movie Avengers.. any batch of them really? Recast them. You’ve at least seen the Avengers, or a commercial featuring them. So who would YOU turn into the Avengers? We are leaving no restrictions on this, so if you want to do all the Avengers as Presidents and a short understanding of why, please do. What if all the Avengers were all books you read once? Go for it – leave your Avengers write-up here and your answers will go into the SomethingComputer and assess the greatest answer of them all!
There is a new world upon us. A world of heroes…. not just the high flying, super-galactic, high-tech type. There lives heroes among us on the streets.. and more importantly – on Netflix.
The Somethings have binged the newest show in the MCU and want to talk to you about it. So first, this show is laden with spoilers – you have been warned. From our opinions of the whole package, to our thoughts of what this means for the future of the Netflix comic shows.
This is also a first for the Somethings – we got ourselves a bonafide Daredevil expert! We would like to thank Marvel.com contributor, comic aficionado, force of nature, ‘Woo’ington’s own TIM STEVENS. You can find links to all of Tim’s work at his ABOUT.ME page, and follow his exploits via Twitter @Ungajje.
Ok, here we go!
After hanging out with the chubby Martian Manhunter – it is time to take a journey back to the island… dammit.
So we ask you, our faithful listeners, in less than 1000 words. (And by less than 1000, remember. 25 is also less than 1000) Give us an answer to one of the great mysteries of the island. Pick any one you want. From smoke monsters, to polar bears, to the fact that Kate REALLY wasn’t that freckly.
Answer a grand question and your selection will be given points towards SOMETHINGSWAG.
Where do you put your answers.. ANOTHER MYSTERY… no? Right.. put them in the comments of THIS VERY POST!
We’re all nerds here. I think. I’d hope. Unless you like listening to shows about stuff you hate… which is a weird fetish, but we don’t judge.
Anyway, over the years we’ve all seen comic films we like. There are tons nowadays, and where our opinions may not always match on what the best are – a lot of us will agree on what the worst is. There are a fine selection of horrible comic films to pick for what are the worst, which is why Rob & Hatton have gotten together and discussed it… and in this episode you’ll not only hear about new information for the SomethingContest (find the link here) – you will also listen and be amazed about a comic movie you might not have been aware of! Hatton wasn’t… seriously!
