Episode 57 – Found Footage Films
Step one – take a camera
Step two – strange and horrible things happen to you
Step three – PROFIT!
The Something’s heading off with nothing but their wits and a camera, with an episode all about Found Footage/Shaky Cam movies. Whether it is a horrible creature tromping through the woods, or an urban legend coming to life in the woods, or a … why are all of these things in the woods?
Anyway – monsters, powers, mayhem galore on the just after Thanksgiving edition of the SomethingSomethingCast.
Note – We would like to thank Olivia Hennis of The Papercuts Podcast for her help with this episode. (And her show’s pretty rockin if you love young adult novels & films)
Episode 56 – The Time Travelling Episode
You don’t need money…
We don’t take fame…
That’s a lie – we’ll take fame. We’ll take fame anywhere it asks us to. It’s gonna live forever. it’s gonna learn how to fly!
Sorry, already digressing. As I was saying – the power of love is a curious thing.. but more curious is the hours and hours we have spent watching time travel flicks. Movies about people moving about in time with usually disastrous results in the first act. There are tons of tropes, tons of gimmicks, tons of good and bad flicks that have used traveling through time as their crutch. Hatton & Rob are hopping in their Magic School Bus and going through their favorites.
(They also kill Hitler.)
Episode 55 – Horror Villain Battle Royale
We would like to play a game… and it’s BATTLE ROYAL: HORROR EDITION! We’ve discussed our favorite creature features and villains in the past, but given it is a time for scary, it is time to look with a chainsaw sharp eye… if that was a thing.. and look at some of the greatest villains of movie-dom and pit them against each other in a discussion about who would stand tall at the end. Whether you are sleeping on Elm St. or messing with a Puzzle Box, there is always a vacancy when it comes to Halloween.
(See what I did there? Yeah, I’m kind of impressed with myself, too.)
Ok ScarySomethings… here we ghoul!
Episode 53 – Roundtable – Sequels!
During our anniversary episode we started talking about good sequels to movies, and what movies have had good #2’s and even #3’s.
Well, not only did the Somethings want to get back in on that action, we invited some other folks along to join in the fun. So we can call this the first ever IJOV Roundtable, featuring some guests from around the pod’verse.
We have Marcus from Deadpan Fury – and Toners from Nyrdcast!
So, sit back, enjoy a rambling, unending, roundtable talk that circles around the topic a few times and occasionally ACTUALLY touches on it.
Ok, here we go!
Episode 50 – The Two-Year Anniversary Part 2
Anyway – we are back with part two of our two part extravaganza at the home of the Pig – Wild Pig Comics! We last left off with WildPig Chris leaving, and still quite a bit of the future of the MCU to go! So join our live audience, special panelists Madison and WP Manager Bill Ellis as we talk about the future not only of the MCU but of comic movies in general. Is the end nigh? What does Ben Affleck think about it? FIND OUT NOW!
Episode 49 – The Two-Year Anniversary Part 1
How did they do it? Two years ago, two old friends met up and started goofing off… one year ago they met up at their favorite nerdbook haunt, Wild Pig Comics, and talked about the Marvel Comics Universe. Well guess what, it has been one more year and another dozen movies about people in tights.. so we’re back talking with the Madison, the Wild Piggies of Chris and Bill, and a live audience to talk about the past and future of the Marvel Comics Universe.
Also, you will hear a special announcement about a new website and joining a bunch of friends for a new home for your ears!
Ok, here we go.
Episode 48 – Bad Movie Posters
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.
Episode 46 – Unfortunate Final Movies
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!)
Episode 41 – Bad Comic Movies
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!
Episode 35 – Movie Soundtracks
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Welcome to the first episode of the New Year with the Somethings! Sometimes what makes or breaks a great movie is a great soundtrack. If you were to film your grand fantasy epic and not call on the sweet sound of Tangerine Dream, we know your movie will fail. So are going to talk about some of the great movies that we love specifically because you can listen to one of the songs and you are immediately transported back to the world created. I have very little funny to say here, honestly.. so instead I’ll remind you guys that we need you guys to submit some of your topics over to our Facebook page and email so we can keep stealing your ideas! (I kid)
Ok, 2015… here we go!
