Epi-Cast: Episode 10 - "This. Is. Star Trek! This. Is. Star Trek!"

What is there really to say? It's back and ready for round 10 (the most challenging of rounds, they say), pulling out the big summer-movie guns in a flop sweat-soaked attempt to entertain. Yep, we're kicking off blockbuster season right here, with a fruitful festival of filmic fantasia. Did I mention that it's our TENTH episode? Hot damn!

Epi-Cast: Episode 10 - "This. Is. Star Trek! This. Is. Star Trek!"

In this sorry entry, recorded on little sleep and much caffeine, Cam and Tom half-heartedly attempt to pull in the much-desired Trekkie audience with a full-on critical exploration into the wilds of J.J. Abram's long-awaited sexy new Star Trek revamp. They also dance joyously around a number of movie-topics, such as the reasons for X-Men Origins: Wolverine blowing Toad, and why Crank: High Voltage lacks spark. Also covered are the Channing Tatum punch-fest Fighting, Heath Ledger's rock 'n roll jousting orgy A Knight's Tale, Fritz Lang's Brazillian epic Metropolis (Don't ask!) and the trailers for Disney's The Princess and the Frog and Satan's G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. And, as an added bonus, in perhaps a new low, Tom rails and rants against Francois Truffaut's Fahrenheit 451 while Cam absent-mindedly blithers on about his school-work. So set your phasers on fun and prepare for engagement, as the Epi-Cast foolishly goes where no (dignified) man has gone before.

Oh, and, as mentioned in the show, Frank McDevitt's excellent film criticism blog Confessions of a Completely Harmless Mind can be found (and book-marked) at:
