Movie Issues: The Stepford Wives

This week Leland is once again in LA and gathered two of his best buddies to watch one of the worst movies ever made. 2004s The Stepford Wives. Frank Oz directs Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick, Bette Midler, Christopher Walken and Glenn Close in a remake of the 70s horror flick. This remake has no idea what it’s trying to be. A horror movie, a comedy or a combo of both. It’s literally two movie smashed together into one bad one. Please download and listen to find out how.

Also, as it tends to happen sometimes, the audio in this gets rather loud at times as there was much drinking going on. We all apologize for the loudness and glasses hitting the table from time to time. We tried our best, but shit happens. We’re sorry, but you have been warned.  Read On

This week Anthony and Ashley are moving to an awesome new place, so Elizabeth takes a turn at hosting, with guest star Leland from Movie Issues! Join us as we pick Leland’s brain on all things DC, and he drops knowledge all over the place.

First we talk about Open Season on Comic-Con tickets and whether or not Nerd Mecca will move to Los Angeles. Then we discuss Aquaman’s new look (Leland’s not a fan, Elizabeth just thinks Jason Momoa is pretty.) Then we break down Joker’s “immortality,” Superman’s flaws, inconsistencies in Harley Quinn, and Wonder Woman having a beer in a bar.

Comic Issues #209 – 4 Years of Good Geekin’

Four years ago we set out to create a podcast that captured the very essence of friends hanging out and talking about any geeky thing that came to mind.  This week marks our anniversary of our momentous birth and like any other humble podcast we threw ourselves a big party!

Comic Issues #208 – Jocks of the Geek World

The Superbowl has come and gone, and that means we’re in the mood to talk about…anything except football. So we talk about all the geeky sports we’d rather watch, including Quidditch and a rousing game of Calvinball.

After that we talk about the resounding “meh” that is the Fantastic Four teaser, and take a look at the new Conan and Red Sonja title, Justice League #38, and More Than Meets The Eye #37. Along the way we also shake our fists at the Girl Scouts for waving cookies in our faces, and dare the Harry Potter fans to send us hate mail. (Except not. Well maybe. Only if it’s really good hate mail.)

Comic Issues #207 – Secret Convergence

Spring is on the horizon, along with it birds, bees, hollow chocolate eggs with sugary heaven inside, and the beginning of both DC and Marvel’s big world changing event.  On the 30 year anniversary of Crisis on Infinite Earths DC is releasing Convergence, while Marvel dusts off their old favorite Secret Wars.  Stripped down to their bare bones, both events appear to be eerily similar, like Volcano and Dante’s Peak, but really they’re more like Armageddon and Deep Impact.  Here to explain the differences and help prepare you for the oncoming storm, your podcasting heroes Anthony and Elizabeth breakdown how these two major stories could effect the future line ups of both comic book stables.

Together they also fawn over the snowy landscape of Rocket Raccoon #7 and examine the life of Damian Wayne after his death, in Batman & Robin #38.   No matter what dimension you’re from or what timeline you’ve been plucked out of this podcast is for YOU!
