    Episode 619

  5. We all know that the odd-numbered Star Trek film are trash, right? Not so much, actually. While Star Trek III: The Search for Spock might not be the most exciting Trek film ever made, it does introduce Christopher Lloyd as the ruthless Klingon Commander Kruge, lays groundwork for future films, and sees the destruction of the beloved Enterprise. It also begs some hard-to-discuss questions pertaining to the resurrection of Spock, and demonstrates some shameful password etiquette. Please listen in as Dan, Dave, and Mike have a blast creating The Spock File, and singing their way through the discussion. [ 2:52:55 || 83.5 MB ]
  6. Departing briefly from earthly geeky subjects to heavenly nerdy ones, Christian and guest host Mixie Plum assemble a pantheon of their favorite gods and depictions of deities, as well as chronicle the gravest acts of divine douchiness. [ 1:32:45 || 46.9 MB ]

  8. An episode of Hey, an Actor that has been three-plus years in the making, The Brothers Wilson are able to use The Year of the Rings to finally talk about the crown prince of motion-capture: Andy Serkis. The coverage of The Lord of the Rings is picked up with the full debut of Smeagol / Gollum in The Two Towers, whilst further mo-cap is covered in Steven Spielberg's adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin. And without the digital effects, we also cover Serkis' portrayal of English rocker Ian Dury in his biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. Along the way, discover amazing things brought up in conversation, such as trees not having lungs, overrated British sitcoms, and new HAA character Pandywise the Dancing Clown. The episode also sees the debuts of the Hey, an Actor caption competition and one Lincoln "Link" Wilson. [ 3:25:13 || 98.9 MB ]

    Remember that time Darryll and I got really drunk and reviewed Creepshow 2? I don't. But there was digital audio evidence, and that's what this week's episode is.

We also give away two copies of Us on Blu-ray. Tunes: "The Fate Before Fate" by Indian, "Get What's Coming" by Creepshow, and "Jaws Theme Swimming" by Brand New. [ 1:18:48 || 38.0 MB ]

    This week on Dread Media, day drink with us and discover the differences between Monster Movies and Monsta Movies as the Alpha and Omega of an unsung horror franchise are reviewed. First, Darryll and Desmond are pretty sure they would have enjoyed Tremors even if they didn't start drinking before noon. Then, Tom stops by to help Des come to grips with the fact that he really likes the latest entry in the series: Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell. Here are your tremor-tunes: "Worms of the Earth" by Crom, "Tremor" by Converge, "Tundra Leach" by Darkthrone, and "Earthworm" by Clutch. [ 1:18:48 || 38.0 MB ]

  14. The people voted! As such, the fifth instalment of The Year of the Rings on Hey, an Actor is to feature fiction's favorite gardener: Sean Astin. The Brothers Wilson chart their featured actor's pre-Samwise career from his child star hit The Goonies through to cult 90s hit Encino Man to, well, Icebreaker. The coverage hits upon important subjects, such as the career trajectory of Bruce Campbell, the cult of Andy's Friends, and two Englishmen's views on Pauly Shore. We also discover which film is to Ian what Halloween is to Pandy. [ 2:37:39 || 76.0 MB ]
  15. Dave and Ian conclude their re-watch of Firefly. In "The Message," Mal and Zoe are sent the corpse of an old war comrade that isn't as dead as he first appears to be. In "Heart of Gold" an old friend of Inara's asks for help to protect one of her employees from a local landowner. And, in "Objects in Space," as the crew debate as to the best course of action to deal with an increasingly erratic River, Serenity is infiltrated by a bounty hunter looking to take in the Tams. They go on to discuss the series as a whole, and outline their plans for the next few months as they take a little summer break. Trigger Warning: Due to the events depicted in these episodes, there is an unavoidable discussion on threats of sexual violence as a storytelling device. [ 2:31:44 || 69.0 MB ]
  16. Thanks to Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, Thanos has proven himself to be one of cinema's deadliest villains. However, nothing compares to his comic book self, especially his assault on the universe as seen in the epic six-issue miniseries The Infinity Gauntlet. With that in mind, strap in, 'cause Dan and Mike are about to discuss The Mad Titan's original reign of terror! [ 1:25:35 || 43.5 MB ]

    Episode 613

    This week on Dread Media, Desmond and Duane take a look at A Taste of Phobia, an anthology film based around obscure fears. Is it any good? We're afraid not.

Of course, there are tunes: "Fear" by Heaven & Hell, "Apopathodiaphulatophobie" by Igorrr, "Screaming in the Night" by Krokus, and "Truth is Dead" by Mark Morton (feat.

  18. The Flickchart Forum returns, with Ian Wilson hosting another two guests as they take on the very first character-based subject matter: Batman. As The Caped Crusader celebrates his 80th birthday, his cinematic outings between 1966 and 2017 are examined, with more than a few nods to World's Finest Podcast and The Dark Knight Discussions. Also: find out who gave up time on their birthday to record this episode, who is Batman's most generic villain, and whether or not Sir Michael Caine has a cockney accent. [ 2:04:20 || 61.1 MB ]

    Jigsaw

    James Deaux resurrects the written version of The Tranquil Tirades for a review of Jigsaw. Oh god.
  21. After the slow-moving visual spectacle that was Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the guys spend nearly three hours gushing over the epic that is Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Themes of life, death, aging, and rebirth are explored, as are thoughts of space-flutes and keytars. (Notes: Guard your ears around 1:56:10. This is also a repackaged version of The Edge of Forever 48.) [ 3:04:20 || 90.2 MB ]
  22. Ian and Dave are back for three more episodes of Firefly. In "Ariel" Simon hires the crew to help him and River break into an advanced hospital to scan River's brain. In "War Stories" Wash and Zoe's marital difficulties lead to Wash joining Mal on a drop, only for them to both be captured by a vengeful Niska. In "Trash" Mal comes across Saffron during a smuggling job and she offers to let them in on a profitable heist if they can put aside their past. One episode fails the Probert Test, they sing the praises of Alan Tudyk, and invite speculation about Ian's fetish. [ 1:58:45 || 58.2 MB ]

  25. Liv Tyler is The Brothers' featured actor this month of The Year of the Rings. We explore her role in low-budget, art-house, indie classic Armageddon, early career music shop romp Empire Records, and spooky stalker flick The Strangers. You will also hear how ridiculously tired Pandy is, discover why Ian developed a phobia of The Cure's Robert Smith, and hear how Heather Graham helps jog Pandy's memory of the ending to The Strangers. Plus: What song does Michael Bay use at all of his film pitches? Why does Pandy mention Bugs Bunny in a discussion of a horror film? And where did Robin Tunney's hair go? All these questions answers, as well as the results of our first Hey, an Actor featured actor audience poll of Sean Astin v Orlando Bloom. [ 2:20:57 || 68.1 MB ]
