Remember When – Episode 63

0

Days of Star Wars Past

We’ve unofficially dubbed May as “The Month of Marvel” and to celebrate, we have a brand new podcast. Don’t call it a regular release, or you might jinx us!

Parris and Jay spend a few minutes catching up. We talk about the recent Episode VII announcements, and Parris cycles back on the recently rebooted Robocop.

Godzilla’s recent arrival in theaters piqued Parris’ curiousity and we talk about the latest take on a classic franchise. Thankfully, it’s nowhere near as bad as the Matthew Broderick era.

Then we hit the meat & potatoes of our show: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past. After a release like Captain America: The Winter Solder, Sony and Fox have a lot of competition in the Marvel universe. And we’re here to tell you why Spidey is already in need of another reboot, and why we liked Days of Future Past.

But that’s not all! Parris actually managed to watch the entirety of GI Joe: Retaliation. We can only assume that some kind of hypnosis was in effect because WOW… that movie is a train wreck. And speaking of train wrecks, Transformers 4 is looking like it’s going to live up to the standards of Transformers 3! Which is to say, the trailers look terrible. I mean really, Optimus Prime riding Grimlock? Yeesh.

Lastly, we wrap up with some talk on TV’s worst year in a long time, and a look back at Mad Men.

And if you’re waiting for a return to “Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen”, listen in at the end! We announce the movie selection for our next episode.

Remember When – Episode 61

Days of Matrix Past

The bi-annual release of Remember When is finally available!  

We don’t waste any time getting started with this show, and jump right into the good stuff!  Our Robocop discussion is ALMOST IMMEDIATELY shanghai’ed by a tangent into the first teaser for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and our discussion on it.

Then we jump back and look at House of Cards (with a TON of spoilers).  How did the end of Season 2 fare, and what are our fears moving into a third season after this most recent story arc?  We also play the “I need an adult” card as we chat about the intense, shocking events in Chapter 24.

Jay surprises everyone with a chat about the first two seasons of Archer, and some Game of Thrones talk.  YES WE TALK GAME OF THRONES (but not as deep as you might like)

Then we talk about the Marvel multi-verse, and our thoughts on the upcoming launches of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as well as conversations about the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer.  With three separate studios vying for their own claim in the Marvel world, can reboots be far behind?

Speaking of reboots, how about that news on the possible Matrix reboot?  Is it time for us to look at that as a viable option?

And Jay, bless his heart, confesses that Parris was right about one of the recent Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen.

There are tangents, tangents galore here.  How many tangents?  There are so many that we can’t even time stamp things.  It’s ridiculous.  Bring a neck brace before listening to the show!
