Signal Boost #26: A Conversation about All the Star Wars

14 Nov

On today’s Signal Boosts, Shaun and Jen take a moment to squee about the fact that there are going to be THREE WHOLE NEW STAR WARS MOVIES AND A TV SHOW AND OMG! SQUEEEEEE!!! They’re moderately more coherent than that as they tackle what type of story Rian Johnson might tell. Then Jen moves them into both a squee about the new character, Rose, and a rant about jewelry.

And then we get to our subliminal messaging mini-boosts!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

#64. Blade Runner 2049 (2017) — A Shoot the WISB Subcast

13 Nov

Digital loves, twisted techbros, and bees, oh my! Shaun and Paul join forces with special guest Marissa VU to discuss the long-anticipated Blade Runner 2049. They discuss the film’s “big questions,” what it means to love in a decaying world, Villeneuve’s remarkable ability to create visual spectacles, and so much more. Plus, we find out if Shaun could really love a non-human, why Paul likes a Vegas in ruins, and why Marissa thinks Jared Leto is just a bit strange in this movie.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

339. Maximum Overdrive (1986) — A Torture Cinema Halloween Special “Adventure”

31 Oct Maximum Overdrive Poster

Cocaine, man eating machines, and AC-DC, oh my! In this special Halloween Horror edition of Torture Cinema, Shaun, David, and Alex are joined by Zena, the Real Queen of Horror, to review the 1986 Stephen King written and directed “horror” film, Maximum Overdrive. Apparently, even Stephen King couldn’t get Stephen King right. The crew discusses how stupid the premise is, eviscerate the despicable characters, muse on where one might find a goblin semi-truck, and share a story that makes the reality of this coked out travesty even more horrifying than the movie. But at least Zena liked the movie, and that means our work here is done. Continue reading
