GWC #276: News Show, FSL 3.0 Round 2

We got a little carried away running down the week in geek this week, including some non-spoilery X-Men: First Class discussion, a recommendation of Tiger and Bunny, Chuck’s late-to-the-show comments on completing Mass Effect 2 and finally watching the end of Caprica, thoughts on the significance of San Diego Comic Con in terms of promotion […]


GWC #258: Artificial Intelligence, Part III

We wrap up our artificial intelligence arc with listener calls and a Valentine’s Day-inspired round of the robot dating game. And we run down the week in geek, including lots of new movie trailers (X-Men First Class, Cowboys and Aliens, and Captain America), Comic Con’s instant badge sell-out, Activision’s shutdown of the Guitar Hero franchise, […]


GWC #255: Animation Arc, Part III

We wrap up our animation arc with Appleseed Ex Machina. And we run down the week in geek including Lucas/Spielberg/Rogan’s 2012 fun, Anne Hathaway’s possible Catwoman appearance in the next Batman flick, discussion of the first X-Men First Class cast photos, one guy’s $300 superhero short, our feelings about the Comcast-NBC marriage, Square Enix’s FF […]


Upcoming Films For 2011 And Beyond

As I write this blog entry, 2010 is coming to a close and New Year’s is right around the corner. After enjoying Tron: Legacy last week with family and friends, I started to wonder what will be the holiday movie blockbuster next year. From there it was a short trip to wonder what the entire […]


Marvel Anime!!

Greetings all — Operator here… Found some anime goodness that caught my eye. I’ll give you a hint: one has armor and the other has claws. Peep out the trailers after the jump.


GWC GWC Podcast #134

Tonight we wrap up our all-too-brief X-Men arc with an X3 re-watch. Highlights: we enjoy the first appearance of a sentinel in the movies, argue that Xavier may well have brought the wrath of the Phoenix upon the world by preventing her from learning and understanding her nature (the way he helps other mutants), question […]


GWC GWC Podcast #131

We’re watchin’ X-Men 2 (Electric Boogaloo) this week! Highlights: we talk free-will vs. suffering, question Xavier’s motives in building cerebro, address some Wolverine morality and Professor X-isn’t-a-dick carry-overs from last week, hate on Stryker, love on Iceman, enjoy our momentary hope for a “fastball special” when Colossus and Wolverine meet in the hall in X2, […]


GWC GWC Podcast #129

This week we dive into the first X-Men movie. Highlights: we struggle to understand the motivations of Magneto and Xavier, wade through the history of the many characters who make appearances in the flick, speculate on why Wolverine is pissy, Cyclops is dickish, and Jean Gray is maybe a little boring (in the movie), note […]


Star Trek XI Vs. Wolverine And The Terminator

It looks like Star Trek XI’s move to spring 2009 isn’t as free of competition as it was a month ago. Variety is reporting that the new McG-directed Terminator flick is opening just two weeks after the Trek franchise’s new hope. Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins will (as of now) release May 22, 2009, and […]


Ryan Reynolds: That’s Deadpool To You

The “Merc with a mouth” now has live action face: Ryan Reynolds is set to play Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I’m not saying I don’t have faith in Ryan — and I’ve seen from other pics that the dude is ripped — but can he bring the necessary personality to pull off Deadpool? I’m […]


Taylor Kitsch As Gambit

So I hear that Taylor Kitsch will be playing everyone’s favorite (or despised) Cajun — Gambit — in the new Wolverine movie. In the immortal words of Mal: “Hmpf.” You can always recognize Gambit via his traditional garb — a long trench coat and (most of the time) a fighting staff. He can charge any […]
