30/11: Episode #8 - Metaphorical A.I.D.S.
hyperlinked show notes: http://bispectacult.two-magpies.com/index.php?itemid=69
So we're a little late, but we're within the same MONTH, so I'm going to consider that progress. And besides, we've got Kid Chris back, so lets pretend THATS the reason, and not my shoddy editing skills! So you not only get a somewhat regularly scheduled podcast, but you get Kid Chris and Dave all in one place! Ohyeahandthatgirlthatdrinksalotbutwhatever. Kid Chris and Dave hit it off right away and get straight into judging harshly this week's pulls, trailers and video game movie adaptations (they actually had expectations. I know, the mind, it boggles.) When not boggling over how a video game movie could be bad, we discuss the lack of "perma-death" in comics, the comparative hotness of ex-dead sidekicks, and the value of their recent returns. Also, we contemplate the inevitable video game adaptation of the Watchmen movie, therefor no doubt being fully responsible for forcing you to contemplate the inevitable abortion as well. Enjoy. We are The Bispetacult and we can't be held responsible for our actions. We read them for the fights.
Top Picks for November 14, 2007:
Kid Chris - Groo: Hell on Earth #2, Spirit #11, Brave and the Bold #8
Dave - Invincible #46, Captain America #32, New X-Men #44
Dafna - Checkmate #20, Captain America #32, Angel: After the Fall #1
Park the Trailer:
Alien vs. Predator: Requiem
Dave and Kid Chris discuss the Hitman movie, Dafna boggles on why they even bother to be disappointed and generally priding herself on being "better than that". Watchmen naturally comes up and we start to fear the inevitable book, comic and video game tie in, despite the seemingly excessive enjoyment we got out of our speculating. We apply our sartorial critical eyes on the recent Joker costume reveal, and Dave resists the urge to see the new Indiana Jones pictures (which are AWESOME) and Dafna realizes she's just not into Heath Ledger.
The Joker Revealed - Ehhhhh.
Watchmen Set Photos - Huuuuuuuh.
Indiana Jones Photos - Yesssss.
Top Ten Video Games That Should Be Movies- Dave came up with the challange completely on his own, but I remembered coming across this a few weeks earlier. I genuinely NEED The Secret of Monkey Island movie. Like burning.
Spooks (wikipedia) - I would link to less "legal" means of learning about this fantastic spy show, but I'm pretty sure you all have your own resources. Anyway, if you were burned by the promise of Alias check out these sexy bastards. First series/season still has one of the best cliffhangers ever.
Full Moon Fever - A comic about werewolves on the moon. It exists. God, I love the internet.
Thanks for taking the time to listen! If you liked what you heard here, why don't you leave us a comment on iTunes? Unless you don't feel that way about us. *sniff*
