Hey there, Spoiler Show fans, this week I talked to film buff and general Renaissance Man Brendan Brown about the new film Star Trek Into Darkness. We both had some issues with the film, which provided a great jumping off point for discussion about what everyday life would be like in the Federation, the lackluster roles for women in the new series and more. We also spoil the new movie quite heavily, so be warned.
In the second segment, we talked about our upcoming project at Metro Cinema at the Garneau Theatre, Shots to Kill! The Sixties Cinema of Seijun Suzuki. We`re both really excited to let you know about the new film series, which can be found online at http://suzuki.heliotropia.net/. The excellent trailer Brendan`s gotten together can be found at http://vimeo.com/67429851.
There were a few technical difficulties in getting this episode together, so please bear with us. Thanks for listening!
Hey everyone, this week I was joined by local filmmaker Simon Glassman, who is the man behind the puppets at FELT UP! The show is a way for Edmontonians to get strange, awkward and hilarious true stories off their chest by means of reenacting them with puppetry. It's a pretty great show, which you can check out online at http://www.bite.ca/show/felt-up/.
Hey there podcast friends, this week we talked about the second entry in our book club series, Isaac Asimov's seminal sci-fi work FOUNDATION!
To look at this book, and its wide scope of future history, we were joined by gentleman farmer, scholar, and barber Mark Hayes! Does this classic work of mid-century science fiction still hold up today? How does the writing style of the book influence our readings? Listen and find out!
Hey there, Matt here with a special solo report. This week, I talked to Tim Rutherford, Cody Kennedy and Josh Lenner, the brains (and bodies) behind the upcoming film The Last Video Store, which is currently competing in a funding contest called CineCoup. The story takes place at our old friend Kevin Martin's video store, The Lobby, so he pops in to speak as well.
Learn the influences that inspired this '80s homage film, as well as some of the trials and tribulations that come from shooting a horror film in Edmonton!
Hey there Spoiler Show fans, this week marked the return of Mark Hayes to the program, as he discussed adventures he's gotten up to in Cuba on behalf of Solidarity Rock! Solidarity Rock is an organization that helps Cuban citizens get ahold of musical instruments and other supplies that are almost impossible to find in the isolated country. Great stuff!
Just a reminder that the Spoiler Show Book Club episode is going to be a little delayed, so if you'd like, keep pushing on ahead through Issac Asimov's FOUNDATION.
Hey there folks, here's an extra-special delayed episode of Spoiler Show! This week, Marcus and I discuss our February Book Club selection, Naomi Novik's HIS MAJESTY'S DRAGON! We know you've all read the book, so massive SPOILERS are to be found throughout. We both really enjoyed reading this book, though and would recommend it to readers.
Next month, we are reading Isaac Asimov's seminal work of early science fiction, FOUNDATION! Start your reading engines ... now!
Hey there folks, on this very special episode of The Spoiler Show, we cut right to the chase with a discussion on race in North America, viewed through the lens of Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED.
To talk about this subject, we brought in two members of the Black community,
actor and media mogul Jesse Lipscombe and man of the world Sekou Boisclair, to talk about their experience with the film, and how it reflects reality.
Hey there Spoiler Show fans, this week I flew solo, talking to renaissance man Devin Bruce from the local comics/scotch podcast called, oddly enough, SCOTCH AND COMICS!
As you would expect, our conversation steered towards those two delicious topics, but we also found time to opine on the future of digital distribution, the nature of adaptation, and many other things.
We also talked at length about February's Book Club outing, and had a very interesting SELL ME ON IT. So enjoy yourself some single Spoiler Show served neat!
Hey there Spoiler Show fans, this week we turned the tables on hometown heroes The Movie Jerks by having them on our show this time!
J.P. Fournier and Shawn Gramiak (who appeared via satellite) sat down to talk about how their podcast came about, movies they actually did like watching for a change, and what is it about some films that really get under your skin.
In our SELL ME ON IT segment, we feature two wildly different podcasts, a book on horror movies, and more!
Hey there Spoiler Show fans, we're back! In this very special season opener, Marcus and I give you the rundown on what you can expect in the coming weeks from the show, and lay down some guidelines for new listeners.
This week also marks the inauguration of the SPOILER SHOW BOOK CLUB, so make sure to listen along for all the details. It's going to be fun! There's also a pretty weird SELL ME ON IT.
