Episode 127 – A Podcast About Slasher Movie Superlatives

Welcome to primetime podcasting…..b!+#h! Oh, what a wonderful one-liner from an awesome and beloved genre of film, the Slasher movie!  So synonymous with the holiday (for some reason….) with an iconic history behind them to boot, and of course ‘tis the month of fright in the night, we couldn’t help but pass out some awards! Best kill, final girl, near miss, terrifying scenario, and of course the best slasher all make an appearance along with their respective “sucklatives,” and just like that opening line, we throw out some deep cuts (get it?)! Luckily for this stab-tastically spectacular slasher Halloween, we have some fellow podcasters to share in the nostalgia and fear, distributing both awards and one-liners of their own. Thanks to Ryan L. Terry, Bring on the Weird Podcast, The Amazing World of Talkin’ Shiz Podcast, Stories of Yore and Yours, and The Average Joe Comic Show for joining and passing out some awards!

Episode 123 – A Podcast About The Pensieve

The Pensieve is one of the few objects of immense power within the world of Harry Potter to not have a full-fledged history behind it. Well, Kalvin and Nick came to the conclusion that this couldn’t stand, so we decided to dive into the Pensieve and figure it out for ourselves! Throughout the story of the Boy Who Lived, the Pensieve was incredibly significant just a few times, but when it did come into play you knew something was going down. With little to no background we set our eye on this shallow bowl (don’t s*%t in it), the memory capabilities it holds, how and if it would be useful in the real world, and whether or not you want John Madden or Mike Tyson to narrate your memories. Would you get lost in the past? What memories would be worth saving? Do you share the thing?!

We give our best shot at giving out our patented Movie Superlatives for categories like Best Character Adaptation, Best Final Boss, and more as we search for light in the darkness. We also discuss why it’s so hard to get Video Game movies right. Is it an issue with storytelling or are video game fans’ expectations just too unrealistic to meet?
