super 8


Super 8! DC’s big reboot! Doctor Who’s mid-season finale! How in pasta’s name did we ever think we’d be able to record a quick 30 minute mini-episode? Well, obviously we’re a bit stupid because when you put myself, the Cap’n, and our pal Eric Melin in a room together things are going to get a little talky. Also insult-y. And possibly huggy.

So give a listen while we take down (and build back up) Super 8, commiserate and bellyache over the impending DC reboot, and giggle with glee over Stephen Moffat’s masterful fan-buggering ala “A Good Man Goes to War”.

Highlights include: Predictions on how hard the Cap’n will be crying after Green Lantern, and discussion around Captain America sodomizing dead hobos on screen.

Writer/director J.J. Abrams sets out to make his version of a classic Steven Spielberg film in Super 8. Those who expected a Cloverfield sequel (which it thankfully isn’t) may be disappointed. What we get instead is a little bit War of the Worlds, a little bit Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a little bit Jaws, and a whole lot of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial – all filtered through J.J. Abrams lens-flare-filtered frame.
