The comic con was just a week ago, and wouldnt you know it, Kev, Aitch and greg were on hand to get in touch with the inner geek inside of us. What happened? What did we see? And why the hell was a grown ass man wearing a Paper Mache(if I spelled it wrong who the fuck cares) Boba Fett costume? Find out that and who the bald white guy I took a picture was at:
Also discussed in the cast is the past 2 weeks released comics, and starting with this show we will be doing a weekly Heroes(tv series) discussion. Feel free to leave comments and suggestions
There is also a secondary podcast for you videogame heads, listen to our first impressions podcast of 2 recently released games: Brothers in arms 2: Hells Highway, and the ultra retro Mega Man 9.
So apparently we had enough hits and feedback to warrant another podcast. So myself, Harry, and newcomer G are back with another one!
Its been 3 weeks since our last cast, this time around we go over the last of the secret invasion tie-ins, ways to die(finally a decent spiderman arc since that brand new day crap), this past summer's big comic movies and the comics that you should be reading after seeing them!
We are going to keep the ball rolling so hit it up check it out and leave us some feedback.
If you have the free time and would like to show some support, offer some constructive advice please do so. Also we are still looking for someone who reads DC comics pretty extensively to join us monthly for our talks. If you know someone(preferably in the dc area) let me know, but take the time to check out the cast.
and now for your entertainment, a picture of me getting fresh with nicholas cage....
An American teenager who is obsessed with Hong Kong cinema and kung-fu classics makes an extraordinary discovery in a Chinatown pawnshop: the legendary stick weapon of the Chinese sage and warrior, the Monkey King. With the lost relic in hand, the teenager unexpectedly finds himself traveling back to ancient China to join a crew of warriors from martial arts lore on a dangerous quest to free the imprisoned Monkey King.
I figured since I am getting all these free passes, might as well make the most of it. This film marks the first pairing of Jet Li and Jackie Chan. This movie is a pretty good martial arts film. The fantasy elements are well played. The story is nothing new, boy bumps head, goes to fantasy land and becomes a hero which in turn helps him be a hero. Not the kind of story that makes an oscar worthy film, but hey, get over it and enjoy the movie. The fight scenes are very well choreographed, especially the fights between Li and Chan. They both have stated that working with each other was very fluid and rhythmic, and it shows on film. There are many fighting scenes from movies where the camera would jump around the action, trying to make it more intense, when it really does nothing but give most people a headache and make the work look shoddy. That wasn't the case here, every fight scene was very well played out and believeable(even those involving our hero kid).
In all we have a story thats unique in a way, but also that has been done. Does that make the movie unwatchable? Not at all, This is a good martial arts film with a few laughs thrown in that will please the viewer from start to finish.
