Just wanted to make it known that I love these podcasts. I would super love getting a more regular installment of these. Use the good podcast room that everyone else seems to be using! Anyway, thanks Rorie and Alex for doing these!

I liked End of Days for some reason.

WTF Screened is gone!? And with it my OKCupid profile for Rorie that was guaranteed to find him love.

Just want to mention Dave Grohl's portrayal of Satan in Tenacious D: Pick of Destiny.

And don't forget the first two Blade movies. I wouldn't rank them above The Avengers (2012) but they don't feel as broadly-appealing and calculated (as set-up for the next movie) as the solo Avengers movies. Trinity sucks though.

Finally! Garage Band didn't destroy another episode of Behind the Screened Door Ver. 2.0. Been too long since I've heard Alex and Rorie wax about the world of movies.

The Counselor?? What an insane (read: terrible) film. Although that thing they killed Brad Pitt with still freaks me out when I think about it.

Great show, as always.

Satan talk and pedophiles was a weird twist, but the last 5 seconds were glorious and perfect.

Stopping halfway through to avoid crashes is a brilliant move, too. Inserting a Bombcast-like ad in that break with Rorie and Alex selling things would be wonderfully awkward (despite being a premium cast).

Hey, this was pretty good! I wasn't expecting much but this is a Good Feature.

I don't think it was mentioned, but wasn't Peter Stormare's character in Constantine supposed to be Lucifier and not Satan?

As a non-religious person myself, I am pretty sure Lucifer and Satan are two different characters, but I'm pretty sure we can generalize both as HEAD DEVIL BAD DUDE FROM HELL.

Captain America 2 was amazing...best comics book/Marvel/super hero movie, in my opinion.

True Detective was awesome...I don't care what anyone says, I thought the ending was appropriate and awesome.

Edit: The Winter Soldier character is a ridiculous premise?

I've never read the book but everything about the movie, including the story, was completely awful.

I remember back when I used to visit Screened that I never felt the same way as Alex about anything, but man he's right. Lar von Trier's films are terrible. We did get Bjork singing with Peter Stormare in one of his movies though. (Although the version with Bjork & Thom Yorke is better.)

Super interested to hear thoughts on The Wind Rises. I loved it to pieces, but both of the people I went with (who are as much Miyazaki fans as I am) found it overly slow and were basically put to sleep by it. I thought it was great in how it connected me with a guy in a profession I've never had any interest in by expressing his artistic desire to create.

If you're interested in hearing my train of thought with the Hostel movies:

I really liked the first Hostel movie. Not the torture scenes themselves, but the movie overall was entertaining. It might even be one of my favorite "horror" movies, because what it does is deal with human horror, things that you can believe the reality of, rather then the supernatural horror or whatever. Man's potential for cruelty is nothing too far reaching. It also ups the stakes for the characters involved, heightens the tension and emotions. As well as making the retribution part more meaningful.

Sure it's no Seven or Oldboy, but considered purely as a horror flick I found it more interesting then 95% of the other samey stuff out there.

Now the second Hostel movie mind you I felt the violence only existed for the sake of violence and not in service of a point. At that point (ha) the whole thing falls apart and it's just gross and uninteresting, starting to edge into the "torture porn" territory just for the sake of it, if i might use the bad term.

It a similar dissonance of purpose and action in service of that purpose, why the second 300 movie just doesn't work at all, or the second Boondocks Saints fails.

My problem with Hostel was that the first half is filmed like some low rent Eastern European softcore porn movie where nothing at all happens. There's not much build up in those scenes, it just feels like filler.

About not going to see a movie because the director may be a shady individual - that strikes me as completely unfair to all the actors, crew, cinematographer etc that put a lot of really hard work into the film and then have people dismiss their efforts because when the director isn't working he's doing weird shit on the side.

I was always of the mind that the two things should be identified for what they are and kept separate. Would I go have dinner with Bryan Singer? Probably not. Would I see a movie that was directed by him? I'm not a HUGE fan but yah sure. I just don't think me going to see the movie is contributing to whatever unethical behavior he engages in as he'll do what he does regardless.

I agree with you as it stands right now: He's innocent until proven guilty. However, I perfectly understand why some people boycott movies because they don't agree with the views/deeds of one or more of the people involved in the movie. Some people boycott Mel Gibson movies, others boycott Roman Polański movies. I would never watch Ender's Game or any other adaptation of Orson Scott Card's work, and he's not even directly involved in the movie!

So it might be jumping the gun a bit on Singer, but in principle I have absolutely no problem with people boycotting a movie (or any other form of art) because of one or more people involved with the project. It's not up to me to care about the other actors, the writer(s) etc. if I do not want to give money to one specific person involved.

@rorie: Thanks a lot! I also would support an HER / True detective special (why not get Norm onboard for that!).

Her is interesting in that it fell apart for me after thinking about it too much. But it is a splendid movie to look at.

True detective was riveting. Even my wife liked it although it was rather violent. Would like to hear your thoughts on the last episode. It was clear that it couldn´t possibly be as good the preceding ones as it had to tie it all together somehow. It was a bit like a waking dream all in all. Probably my favourite show of all.

I think it's bullshit that people aren't going to see X-Men because of all that stuff, I thought it was innocent till proven guilty? Isn't that how it's meant to work?

I don't watch movies (last thing I saw in a theater was in 2009), but I'm always down for GB podcasts. I'll listen and enjoy. :)

For once I have seen all of the movies in the podcast description (Haven't listened to the episode yet)

  • Watched the director's cut of The Counselor. Weird movie didn't make a lot of sense. Felt like a movie that had important bits cut out of it.
  • I enjoyed The Wind Rises a lot. Thought it was a fitting final movie for Miyazaki. Was taken aback by how much of a not-fantasy movie it was.
  • Granted I am a Marvel movie fanboy at times, but I loved Cap 2. Best movie of Phase 2 by far. Guardians has a tough task to follow it up.

Anyway, it is cool that the movie podcast is back. I always look forward to these. I am actually enjoying the whole movie podcast can drop at any point without warning thing going-on.

I'll be there for Spider-Man in IMAX 3D, Godzilla, X-Men, and Maleficent in May.

I loved The Lone Ranger. You made some good points about why you didn't like it very much so I can't get too upset about you not liking it.

The Counselor was weird but I enjoyed it a lot. You're right about it being a beautiful movie in terms of actors and cinematography.

I think that new Cameron Diaz movie looks like it's worth a rental.

Alex was pretty much spot on about Nebraska. I thought Will Forte was fantastic in it though and deserved an acting nomination for his performance. My favorite Payne movie is Sideways. About Schmidt is pretty fantastic too.

@benmo316: it's just super mediocre, which is the worst kind of movie, so yes. the only highlight is the end where Reeves commits seppuku. Also @rorie The Wind Rises is Miyazaki's final film.

@crunchman: I think Joey has all of them on a hard drive somewhere, but it'd be tough to post them anywhere - I think YouTube would probably quickly take them all down due to copyright strikes.

I'd be happy even if they were uploaded to a shady Scandinavian torrent site. I loved the work you, Joey, and Alex did on that site and the news of what the sale of the Whiskey sites meant for Screened really brought me down. Besties, Half Good, Defend Your Movie, and that behind the scenes editing video Joey posted. Great stuff!

Rorie nailed the Lone Ranger humor stuff.

I still mourn the loss of the True Detective podcast.

@ttfd: ...and there's plenty of game-related content on the site if that's what you're interested in. But judging by audience reaction, there's also plenty of desire to hear F1 podcasts or listen to people talk about movies or see people play Pathfinder. If you feel otherwise, that's fine, but just keep in mind you're on a website where an editor uploaded a video of llamas that wound up being commented on over 300 times.

We're a staff with a diverse array of interests and we're going to talk about them. Sorry that this apparently offends you somehow, judging by your comment on the last podcast calling it "stoopid meaningless content." I always welcome criticism, but it'd help me do what I do better if you actually commented on the content of the thing rather than simply dismiss it out of hand. But you're freely welcome to do the latter, too, considering you're paying for it.

Did anyone see 47 Ronin? I'm curious on the reception it got. I see it got a 13% on Rotten Tomatoes but was it really that bad?
