Review by Luke Whitmire Twenty five years ago in the genesis of her career, a young Kathryn Bigelow was a protege to a high caliber filmmaker (James Cameron), and she soon became a great visionary for directing big-budget action films. She started her career as a filmmaker whose work consisted only in the artifice realm. […]

And so the world didn’t end.  Take that Mayans!  So how do the Podwits celebrate the world continuing to spin?  By taking a look back at computers through the ages and the history of their beloved comic books (no Marvel vs DC talk here, we promise!)  So kick back with your favorite cup o’ egg […]

There’s going the be some bitching, complaining and hugging this time around…

My favorite time of the year brings all kinds of things. For me, I love the old TV Christmas Specials that for the most part, are luckily still aired. But a couple of years back I was in England and my mind was blown away by an advert which, I think is almost completely unknown back here […]

Review by Luke Whitmire   The plot goes like this: Two lowlife, crack-addict, brain-dead criminals (Scoot McNairy & Ben Mendelsohn) are recruited to knock off Markie Trattman’s (Ray Liotta) high-stakes underground casino. A porcine thug who has knocked off one of his own games in the past and got away with it, Markie knows he […]

In this week’s podcast, our boys take one step beyond into the tantalizing world of holiday foods gone wrong.  With a brief detour into madness, the wits of Pod once again ask the question, “is Porn truly the greatest example of audience-driven entertainment?”  All that plus the latest skinny on the possible Justice League film […]
