Halloween is here, Italian horror maestro Dario Argento’s latest film, Dracula 3D, has finally received distribution in the U.S.A. (through IFC Midnight) and the band Goblin, who contributed so many great scores to Argento’s earlier films (as well as many other Italian horror classics) is finishing up the first leg of their recent American tour. […]

Continuing to celebrate the festive Halloween season, Dion and contributor J. Blake are back with part two of their hugely insightful Side Cast on Horror Movie Remakes. They jump right back into the in’s and out’s of the genre, and see how their favorite modern intrepretations stack up to the classics and why.

The Great Delicious North

Posted: October 24, 2013 by Brian in A Case of the Munchies, Food

A few weeks ago, the Empress and I lived one of the great romantic clichés: driving north to Niagara Falls to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We did all the usual touristy things—the tour behind the Falls, the White Water Walk, and the Butterfly Conservatory among others, and just enjoyed ourselves immensely. But it was in […]

While something no doubt unspeakable has happened to J (we don’t know either—tweet your most creative theories to us @Podwits!), Dion and Brian are talking music (and linguistic history, and The Walking Dead, but mostly music). The boys discuss Black Sabbath, the Doors, the joys of shows at small venues, and how they don’t always […]

More Than Just Drinking: A Review of Brew Dogs

Posted: October 14, 2013 by Brian in Beer, Television

On this week’s Podwits Podcast, Dion dips his toes into the heady waters that surround the history of Doctor Who!  Can he make it out with his (pod)wits intact?  Brian takes aim at archery and barely makes it back alive!  And J’s still just clinging to that last bit of sanity (thanks, in no small part, to […]

This week J. Marcus and Dion tackle the pressing issues of the day:  the British thespian Invasion, ‘Old Detriot’ alla RoboCop becoming a reality, the Dark Knight Trilogy Box Set, the plot holes that abound in Star Trek: Into Darkness, the final word on Richard Donner’s Superman with the newly released International Cut, and- last but certainly not least, […]

Dion and J. Blake are back for another exciting addition of the Podwits’ Side Cast. Todays topic is toys from our childhood. A subject often visited in the Podwits podcast, this time around the duo laments about the various toys they played with in their youth. Dion explains his paradox growing up that was imposed on him by […]
