Ep. #110-Gamer



Apparently we have become the Neveldine/Taylor podcast, as this week, we take on yet another entry in their storied filmography, 2009’s futuristic sci-fi action flick GAMER. A natural extension of a brand that prides itself on video game aesthetics, we now have a film in which video games have literally come to life, with wealthy gamers controlling lower-class “actors” to enact their deepest desires, namely violence and sex. Gerard Butler works himself into the proceedings, as does a shockingly buff Michael C. Hall, but what proves most surprising is how preachy and didactic everything is here. What happened to the offensive dude bros we know and love?


Ep. #94-The Perks of Being a Wallflower



Our month devoted to YA adaptations wraps up this week as we take on 2012’s coming-of-age dramedy THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, written and directed by Stephen Chbosky. Logan Lerman stars as an anxiety-ridden teenager who learns to navigate the living hell that is high school with a little help from new friends Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. All of this angst inspires nostalgia in co-hosts Luke and Steve, who weren’t always quite so surly. So take a trip down memory lane with us. It’s not as scary as it sounds, we swear.
