The Starvation Games

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you.  We’re back with a brand new, fresh episode of Remember When… less than two weeks since the last one!  It may seem like an April Fools Joke but trust us, there’s nothing to laugh at here…

Well, not unless you count The Hunger Games.  After watching the hit movie, we have some pretty strong opinions we want to voice about how underwhelming of an experience The Hunger Games was, and how we wish there had been a better chance to emotionally connect with the movie and its characters.  This section is filled with spoilers, but if you listen and have the movie ruined for you… we might be doing you a favor.

Then we progress into some continued discussions on the upcoming summer movies as we talk about the new trailer for the Total Recall remake, the new Prometheus trailer and our excitement for this new Ridley Scott endeavor (as well as our concerns about it) and Parris’ love for Charlize Theron in both Prometheus and the new Snow White Movie

We end the show with a discussion on the Walking Dead, Mad Men, and a chat about piracy and the logic behind “cutting the cable cord”.  It’s a fun and interesting talk.

As always, you can find us on Twitter, on Facebook, and on the web. Or, if you’d like to leave us feedback, you can call us at 206-495-1732 or email us at rw@filmtangent.com. Thanks, and enjoy the show!
