We got a message not so long ago from our good friendBig Kev, of a show you might remember, Big Kev’s Geek Stuff, now far flung years into the future with Geek Stuff: TNG (@GeekStuffTNG) – and a conversation about Solo broke out.
You see, Rob and I have mixed opinions on Solo… was it good? Was it good enough? Was it just nostalgic pablum?
The battle lines have been drawn… on the Somethingside, myself and Rob. On the side of the defense, we have not only Big Kev, but actor and long time friend of the Somethings and New Jersey actor Erik A.
So settle in and make your opinions known – it’s time for a Something In Review: REDUX
Long ago when we started doing this show, we had this little running gag about attractive people being in the movie Suckerpunch – so now that we have been doing our movie parties on Discord, the time was right for us to find out what all these attractive people actually do!
So join us as we head into our dream within a dream (within a dance within a dream within a bus within a melodrama) and discuss the gun-firing, zombie-killing, samurai-slashing, scantily-clad, outlandishly over-hyphenated movie: Suckerpunch!
Is it good? Is it bad? Is it misunderstood? Well, it’s at least one of those things, and you can find out which right now!
Well – we now have a record for ‘The Oldest Movie’ that we have ever reviewed in The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T – which is a movie that was put together by noneother than Dr. Seuss… and it shows a couple of things:
With a good name behind it, you can make anything!
There’s a reason Seuss only did cartoon movies in his later years
A weird collection of acid trip fever dreams, pulls from other more famous movies, but a LOT of interesting stage and set design and one amazing song… Dr T is a thing we saw, and you should too.. just to say you did.
So join us and the Aquabats (No, they’re not on the show) as we talk Dr. T and what it all really means.
If there is one sect of the movieverse we don’t touch on a lot – it is horror. That’s not because we don’t love horror.. Hatton has spent most of this quarantine binge watching Shudder – so we’re going to do our best to change that a little bit moving forward.
Enter Children of the Corn: Part 1, with an eventual desire to do all of the other parts. Is this classic horror movie worth a cob? We get into that and a whole lot more about things completely unrelated to Children and Corn….
And – after the episode is over, be sure to stick around as CHAPTER 4 of STORIES TO AMAZE starts right after that!
It’s time to return to head on back to a long time ago and take a trip to a galaxy not nearby at all….
That’s right – the Somethings, always present and ready with the cutting edge commentary – are ready to talk Star Wars. If you are a Wars’y type, you likely have your opinion on whether Abrams & The Mouse nailed it, missed it, or middled it… but now you get to find out how much you disagree with two other guys on the internet!
So gather your Sith Powers (or Jedi Powers, I guess…) and get ready to boldly go where every other podcast has gone before already! It’s time to review The Rise of Skywalker! (..or is it The Skywalkers?) ..it doesn’t matter. (..and stick around, the end has a treat)
With the world topsy turvy, a month with 5 Tuesdays, we are all jumbled up, so The End came early, there’s a chaos episode next week – and this week, you get a review of a show we’ve talked about before! ..but it’s ok, because it is AHS.
American Horror Story is a staple of television these days, and each year brings a new theme, new monsters, new intrigue, and a revolving cast of characters that is drastically different than what we got in Ghost House so many years ago.
So – as the horrors head back in time, is it up to the AHS highs of Hotel and Coven? Or is it down in the lows like your least favorite season. (Most people would put Roanoke here, but I love that season) — don’t be too shy shy, find out our thoughts right now!
We’re heading out into deep seas this month for a “documentary” with a twist.. also a title so long it doesn’t fit in the title bar.
This journey is one of art, one of curiosity, and it is a divisive piece of cinema. If you don’t know anything about it – we get in there, so you’ve been warned this is a spoiler of an episode, perhaps more than usual.
That said – join PC Rob, Hatton, and Edmund Fitzgerald as we go spelunking deep into the abyss.
Is this the same powerhouse that was Jekyll? It’s got the same team, as well as longtime Dr. Who showrunner in Stevan Moffat… so why don’t we take a ship across the country and tell you all what Hatton & PCR think.
Sure, it’s early, but we’re taking next month off – so we gotta get it in somewhere.
And since everyone is getting themselves all stuff prepared, we decided to hit a a movie that had a strange beginning, but has found its place as a Christmas Traditional for weirdos… it is the scariest Christmas Carol ever put to film – SCROOGED! (I heard an old lady had a heart attack)
So join in the festivities as the Somethings discuss whether this was a well-received holiday tradition (like cranberries in a can) – or the kind of thing you tolerate just because it’s the holidays (like hugging the weird aunt that always smells like cat pee)
It’s time to be visited by three ghosts and two Somethings, so you best change your ways…. Scrooged!
