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: http://frankmcdevitt.blogspot.com/
