Episode 129- GALAXY QUEST

Galaxy

We’re back! It’s 2014 now, so we’re boldly looking into the future by discussing a movie that was made fifteen years ago: Galaxy Quest! We liked it when it first came out, but haven’t thought about it much since… we’re busy, we have lives! Of course the film stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, and Veronica Mars’ dad– but is it rewatchable? To find out, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes!

Episode 43- The Alien Quadrilogy

Just in time for the backlash against Prometheus, and the backlash against that backlash, we revisit the original Alien series, from the claustrophobic abject horror of 1979’s Alien all the way to 1997’s Alien: Resurrection in which Ripley comes back from the dead to audition for the Harlem Globetrotters (incidentally check out this video in which Sigourney Weaver describes/rationalizes that scene– my favourite line is “I tried to use the basketball as a weapon and keep playing”). Is the Alien Quadrilogy worth rewatching? To find out download the link below, or better yet subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!
