Always love these.

Edited by Rorie

Let me know if the audio on this is weird - I was getting some hiss from Alex while we were recording, and adjusted the volume downward about ten minutes in. Not sure if I managed to fix it, but I'll look into it for next time.

Also next time: a title! And hopefully music! We'll see! Apologies if these seem off-the-cuff, but it's been difficult to do a lot of planning with all the E3 hoopla. It was, at least, ready to publish yesterday, but I wanted to wait for the megaton announcement to wear down a bit.

Sweet more 'Untitled Giant Bomb Movie Podcast' (I have to say I love the name) Always good to hear some more of Rorie and Alex :D

Edited by RetroVirus

@rorie @alex I love that you've resurrected this podcast, thank you so much!

Edited by KatyGaGa

I accidentally understood this to be the Untitled Giant Bomb Movie. I imagine if such a thing existed, it would be rated R for Strong Sexual Content and Language.

Posted by MariachiMacabre

Awesome. Can't wait to hear more about how disappointing Man of Steel was (I assume that's what will be said because it's kind of true. So much potential.)

Episode Three: The Well-Named Edition.

Yay! Was thinking to myself I have nothing to listen to while I go out for a run. Well done Rorie and Alex, well done.

This is becoming one of my favourite pieces of content on the site, and im not a huge movie guy.

Awesome work guys, keep it up.

oh goodie!

Posted by Goldanas

If you're just going to do a Movie thing on a Video Game website, get Ryan in on this shit and just call it the TANG podcast.

Or branch out even more and just call it Giant Bombcast: Off-Topic

Though I guess that would just be redundant.

BOOM!

Oh come on! Name the damn thing already! :)

"Ramshackle Mess Forever" would be a pretty great title.

I should say that I enjoy these.

Posted by Chuck_

Awesome!

So no spoilers to avoid this time?

Edited by None_Braver

Is a title the next step to iTunes?

Posted by The_Nubster

Fantastic, what a nice surprise. Can't wait to see what you guys thought of This is the End.

By the way, would you be open to the idea of getting some other movie critics in to talk with you two about recent releases? I've been watching a lot of Half in the Bag recently, on Red Letter Media, and their format is the same as yours (that is, two dudes talking about movies in a really casual way). You're two guys, they're two guys, two plus two is four, and the more the merrier!

I maintain that they should call the podcast "Box Office Bomb"

Edited by Rorie

@chucknoluck: there are some pretty mild spoilers for Man of Steel in there, but nothing I would consider very major. There are superfights that occur in places that are very familiar to fans of the Superman mythology. That's about as explicit as I think I got.

I second this motion.

@none_braver: Pretty sure you can copy/paste the premium RSS to iTunes and it will work? Let me know!

Still in awe that this is back, I missed it so much.

Posted by jimmy_p

In three episodes I havent heard about any movies that are actually decent. Time to start discussing arthouse or something?

Posted by Mezmero

Cranky Commentary Concerning Cinema: C4...explosion. Love you guys. Keep doing this for as long as it makes sense.

Edited by Rorie

@jimmy_p: Well, I definitely *thought* Frances Ha would at least be decent, and that's about as arthouse as it gets. Since we're paying for these movies out of pocket, I'd definitely hope that everything I watch is good (and we just outright skip stuff that looks terrible). Hopefully something's good soon.

Posted by Liam89

Keep this up guys, great work. Maybe in the future bring back blockbuster league, predicting blockbuster earnings.

Posted by csl316

How many spoilers will there be??

Posted by ManlyBeast

@goldanas: Great idea. It needs someone else who is funny. I don't mean that as a insult.

Posted by jarowdowsky

Would be nice to just have like 5 minutes at the end maybe recommending a movie Rory and Alex like? Just to get through the dirge of dire blockbusters... Great podcast though, the movie industry is just not doing you justice guys :)

Edited by LiquidPrince

I have a friend who is hard of hearing and ALL the theatres in Ontario Canada we went to have the exact same closed captioning/ subtitle system.

Also listening to this podcast, I have a hard time believing you guys ever truly "like" any summer popcorn action movies. There are a lot of plot elements you sort of gloss over, which are the things that give the characters their defining attributes, and then you also assign connotations to certain scenes that I don't know are always fully warranted.

None the less, it's still entertaining to listen to, even if it does come off as a bit cranky.

IHOP pancakes are Superman's true weakness.

Posted by Mystyr_E

ugh, premium podcast

Posted by Rorie

@jarowdowsky: @liquidprince: I would say that we've liked a few in the past - you can of course check out the reviews on Screened from summers past. Alex had great things to say about Fast and Furious 6 last episode, and we both mostly liked Star Trek: Into Darkness aside from the ending. I wouldn't say we're being relentlessly downers on summer movies; there've just been a few stinkers lately.

@Rorie

Serious question, duder. What do you and Alex think about the notion that movies/film are no longer the franchise-creating juggernauts they once were?

When I think back on what became huge in the 70s - 90s, especially in regards to toys, there are tons of examples to pick from that started off as films. Star Wars is obviously the biggest one, but there were also films like ET and Ghostbusters that evolved into long-lasting franchises. (ET might not be the best example.)

I can't think of a single film in the past 13 years that has spawned that sort of legacy, with the obvious exception of anything Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks touches. Those companies, however, have a unified brand beyond their franchises, so I don't think they count.

Am I just a bitter 22-year old, or do most modern blockbusters just prey upon existing fan bases instead of trying to build their own?

Would it be crazy to listen to a wrestling podcast while hating and never watching wrestling? Jared Rae seems like a good choice.

Edited by Boom_goes_the_dynamite

I watched the red letter media review of Man of Steel today, which made me realize I didn't really like Man of Steel that much. I knew I hadn't when I walked out and the review put words for why that I couldn't voice. Sounds like Matt agrees; however, I didn't think Henry Cavill was great, but I also don't think that was his fault.

Sounds like a good question for the next podcast! I'll try to throw up a thread for it before the recording next time...

Edited by LiquidPrince

@rorie: Let's be serious though Rorie... Fast and the Furious doesn't count when it comes to Alex. His love for that series is beyond logic.

Also, have guys read about Cavill's workout for this movie? It was ridiculous. He had a 5000 calorie a day diet, which when you are only eating lean meats and vegetables, is a ton of food... Plus his workout was ridiculous. It's kinda sad when people see someone big and automatically assume it has to be steroids, belittling the ridiculous amount of work he did to become Superman.

Clue is proof that a board-game movie can be good. Battleship is proof that Hollywood is run by morons.

Edited by KatyGaGa

@president_barackbar:

yeah, the start of the film is Jeff leaving Gamespot and then running though Petaluma, on his way back home to create Giant Bomb. It will be like at the start of The Social Network. I also imagine the whole 193 minute film to be scored by Explosions in the Sky,

Smallville(the series) was full of religious/prophetic undertones, made it a little hard to watch at times.
