Popcornucopia

It’s all about Avengers: Age of Ultron this week, dear listeners! We talk about it, we have a spoiler section for it, and after the show is over we think of lots of clever and interesting things we didn’t say about it.

Ahh, well… happens every time!

We also talk TV with Better Call Saul and Daredevil and discuss a bet that Pete made with friend of the show James Croft over what order the tentpole blockbusters will rank in the box-office take this year. And even though we don’t normally go into marketing and stuff in much depth, we couldn’t help but talk about the trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Jurassic World and Mad Max: Fury Road.

For homework, we have the Elizabeth Olsen-starring films Martha Marcy May Marlene and Liberal Arts. And the opposite of homework is Stranded, starring Christian Slater. Do not watch this film. You have been warned.

Finally, Pete hooks us up with a clip from an FX house that decided to re-colourise the bleached palette of Man of Steel. Looks like the added some more fun if you ask me!

So get to the cinema early with Pete and Justin so we can collectively notice that franchise titles sure do go nuts on the colons, don’t they? And they’re all franchise movies now, aren’t they? And movie trailers sure are full of percussion these days, am I wrong? And the popcorn and choc-tops? That’s how they get you.

The Fast and the Inescapable

This week we talk about the physics-free Furious Seven, the ingenious horror of It Follows, and the unexpectedly great Netflix superhero series Daredevil.

For homework there’s A Nightmare on Elm Street (classic!) and Cabin in the Woods (self-aware beyond all reason!).

So why don’t we get you out of these wet clothes and… hey! Don’t be scared baby! That noise was just the wind. There’s nobody out here at Murder Creek except you and me… and Pete and Justin on the Shoot The Glass podcast!

Escapology

Hello, dear listeners!

This week we talk a lot of telly with the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (again!), and the return of Community. We also chat about Netflix landing in Oz and manage to recommend Henry VDrunken Master 2 and Police Story 2 along the way.

We then move onto films with teen comedy The Duff and adult tragedy Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.

For homework we have Mean GirlsThe Breakfast Club and the classic Easy A, which we’ve doubtless recommended before.

Finally Pete hooks us up with the straight dope on a certain powerful and litigious organisation with the website Xenu.net.

So come and take a free test that will improve your life with Pete and Justin on the Shoot The Glass Podcast!
