Sean, Sarah, Kevin and Bryan discuss the merits of ravenous undead hordes. Brains?
Hello again dear listeners and readers. Today will consist of numbers 10 to 6. I hope you enjoy!
*Footnote: Again, here are a few key words that helped me narrow my focus on why certain movies were chosen: Risk, originality, genuine, geeky, beauty, closure, intensity.
10 – John Carter – Obviously in the minority, I found John Carter to be captivating, entertaining and visually stunning. It’s a shame that Disney really mucked-up the marketing surrounding the movie. Not many people know that John Carter is based off of a book, A Princess of Mars, which is an integral story, written back in the early 1900s, that influenced the modern-day genres of sci-fi and fantasy. Plus, it inspired MANY of today’s best writers and directors, not to mention movies like the Star Wars saga. Had the marketing focused on that, I think people’s perspectives might have changed.
The Christmas movie conversations continue this week with Bryan’s favorite: The Ref. Also, Nerds on History’s Eric Bricmont is back, everyone! Back to try to destroy the film podcast… one shark at a time.
The phenomena of the Creature Feature was around before it even had a name. Listen to how it started, how it has evolved and hear The Nerds discuss notable releases as well as their favorites.
This week, The Nerds discuss films that claim to be “Based on True Events” and how true they really are. Then, we get to listener feedback including reading aloud our fans’ prizes from participating in social media contests.
