Any Conjuring talk? I was hoping to see it later and I wanted to know going in if Alex Navarro gave it the thumbs up.

Pacific Rim was so dumb....I loved it.

Hoho! Content!

"Any Grown Ups 2 talk?" He asked, simultaneously hoping for both a postive and negative answer, believing no man deserved the form of hardship that such a film surely delivers in spades.

hey rorie, can you embed a video in the comments? it will fix the mobile site and allow me to download the podcast.. the mobile version is fuckin god awful

I've been waiting for this!

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Pacific Rim has the best giant robots vs. giant monsters, but not so great scenes of people talking. Except Ron Perlman.

That's my opinion at least.

@red12b: A video of anything? Or a specific video?

I gotta say, these casts are making me watch movies just so I can listen to them.

Just like BTSD used to!

Posted by GunsAreDrawn

This podcast is really tempting me into renewing my subscription. It's just great to hear Alex and Rorie talk about movies again.

Edited by AxleBro

The phone vibrating sounds were super jarring at about half way through. Other than that, great podcast.

@axlefgk: I was really tempted to get him to pick up the phone and put the person on the podcast.

Hey @rorie have you seen much about the Act of Killing? I've seen that movie get some serious buzz over the last couple of weeks.

ALSO YAY MOVIES

Some really great names for everyone and eveything in Pacific Rim: Stacker Pentecost, Yancy Becket, Newton Geiszler, Hannibal Chau, Coyote Tango, Crimson Typhoon, etc.

Btw I would recommend not watching the series "elementary". It is a pretty horrible take on the Sherlock Holmes mythology. Even if Matt Rorie recommended it.

You are far better off with the newest Sherlock Holmes tv series produced by BBC. So far 2 seasons have been produced and fortunately there will be a season 3. Sherlock Holmes is being played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Dr Watson is being played by Martin Freeman.

The first and second seasons are available on Netflix.

@nardak: I watch both. Sherlock is definitely better, and is one of my favorite things on TV. I still enjoy Elementary, though.

Edited by Rorie

@mjhealy: Yeah, I've heard good things, but it sounds pretty depressing.

Really looking forward to Only God Forgives. It will either be super-enjoyable or an interesting disaster.

Very interesting to hear about Pacific Rim not really having a love story and being kiss-free.

I've only seen the movie in a test screening. Back then the flick did end with dude and lady kissing each other on the rescue raft. Everybody in the theater got those focus group questionnaires. I definitely wrote that their love story was underdeveloped and not interesting.

So you're welcome, America.

Woo, Pacific Rim talk! It's been a week since I've seen it, but I'm still buzzing about it.

Bah. While I agree that BBC Sherlock is really good, I think the same of Elementary. Lucy Liu is great as Watson and the plot twist at the end of the season was something quite fresh and unexpected, while still conjuring up memories of A Study in Scarlet.

I can't wait for season 2.

The robot on the audio player looks like it has rotating nipples....almost. So close.

Posted by AngriGhandi

Hell yes!

It's time for another edition of ALEX AND RORIE'S BOX-OFFICE-BOMB 'CAST!

That's what you should call it, by the way, @rorie. Leverage that brand synergy.

Had to look it up but Johnny Lee Miller was Angelina Jolie's ex-husband not her brother.

You guys keep doing this podcast because it's awesome.

Can we all agree that the BBC Sherlock's Moriarty is one of the worst TV characters ever created?

I agree with that. I'm not THAT familiar with Sherlock lore, but I'm glad they took a more radical approach to him. I recently watched the six episodes and while the non-Moffat scripts aren't as fun, it's all still watchable and interesting and enjoyable.

Also, blowing off House of Cards is UNACCEPTABLE. Show is GREAT. It gets a little over the top at points, but it's all fictional, so they have room to work with.

When is that WWE podcast coming out. Hopefully after summerslam

I like that they took a different direction with him, but he is just so over the top. That kind of sums up my feelings with the whole show, though. I really want to like it, and I like that it's different, but it just doesn't do it for me the way I want it to.

Idris Elba did some comedy work, he was in one of the season of The Office at some point.

Posted by Beomoose

Thanks, Matt and Alex! Alex let us know how the Bridge does, the FX commercials have done NOTHING for me but I'd be willing to give it a shot if you think it puts together a good early-season run.

Get Vinny and Drew and then just talk more about Pacific Rim. Because I love that movie flaws and all and fuck everything coming out this weekend.

Posted by super2j

My god. When screened went down, I was a big deal because I have like a million sources about video games and tech that inform and amuse but for movies, this was it. Glad you guys are are doing something.

Posted by Branthog

Wow, I guess I'm too old to know anything about movies or television anymore. I have no idea what Pacific Rim or The Bridge or Grown Ups 2 or any of this shit is. Then again, I don't think I've seen a single Oscar winning film of the last ten or twelve years.

Also, on the subject of long movies -- I feel like I've seen it all by now, so even shorter movies feel long as hell. Long violent sequences and long action sequences bore the shit out of me and few films hold my interest long enough to just sit and watch them. I usually turn something on via Netflix and then do actual work on my laptop -- looking up from it every now and then to see what is going on in the film.

This isn't about attention span, either -- it's just the "yeah, we know how this works, let's get to it" of having seen enough films in a life time, I guess.

Holy crap, that looks about as bad as Starship Troopers...!

Posted by MichaelBach

I just came back from Pacific Rim, I liked the robots and creature effects, really well made. Good brainless action!

For the title of this podcast I really think they should just have it be "The Untitled Movie PodCast".

Much appreciate this movie podcast, it's good to hear about movies from a couple of "normal" guys that just likes movies and not some critics that only likes french experimental low budget movies :) Keep it up @rorie and @alex

Oh HELLLLL no. I love that character. I get that he's exaggerated to all hell, but he comes across as wonderfully menacing in a "I'm so bored of being the most evil genius around" kind of way. He reminded me of a lot of DC comic villains in that way.

Pacific Rim is the most fun I had at the movies since the Avengers. I have seen it twice in theaters and I might go see it again with another set of friends tomorrow.

Idris Elba has done comedy before. He was in several episodes of The Office, right?

Sherlock always was considered socially awkward. In an age where we are informed about these medical cases and mental illnesses I don't know why it wouldn't be normal to say exactly what the issue is.

Posted by Sammo21

@bkbroiler: lol....absolutely not. I think he is the best Moriaty we've seen in film or television. Does that mean he's faithful? I'd say more so than any of the Moriarty's we've seen. I think the actor did a great job with the role and went out of the box in a good way.
