Movie Issues: The Phantom

It’s Comic Con week here in San Diego! Leland and Spooky are out there running around trying to do and see everything they can. So because it’s all about comics and movies, this week they watched the 1996′s The Phantom. Based on the 1930′s pulp hero, where a white dude protects Africa. Yeah… some things worked better in the past than they do in the present. This is a pretty terrible flick. Please download and listen in as the guys try to understand this “plot” and other nonsense.

Movie Issues: Planet of the Apes

With the new Apes flick opening, we wanted to watch one of the older Apes movies, but which one to do? Oh that’s right, in 2001 Tim Burton did one! So we watched Planet of the Apes. We have all tried to forget about it, but we need to face facts, it happened. And man is it bad, just one mistake after another. It’s amazing they filmed anything at all with how terrible the script was. But they managed, just as we did to watch it. So come on and download and remember this with us!  Read On
