Star Trek Discovery; Choose Your Pain

Welcome to my recap of episode five of Star Trek Discovery, Choose Your Pain (sounds like an 80’s action flick starring Sly Stallone).

I’ll be looking at each episode, pretty soon after it has aired. This is the first TV Trek since 2005, so polish your enterprise shaped bottle opener and get ready to Boldly go once more.

#220: Firefly “Serenity” and “Train Job”

Dean, Matthew, and Jessica cover the first two episodes of the cult-favorite, Firefly. They dive into the ‘Verse and go beyond the black. They talk first impressions (or at least recall first impressions), they look at the characters, performances, and dialogue. The gang also compares Fox’s impressions of the “Serenity” pilot as well as the character of Mal. Was he [Mal] too dour at the start?

House of Wax (1953)

House of Wax (1953)

This will be a quick entry. After all, it’s the middle of October and I have a ton of creepy flicks I need to catch up on before another spooky movie season passes us by.

Speaking of which, I recently had the opportunity to see the horror classic, House of Wax, the way it was intended to be seen: on the big screen. I love it when theaters re-release classic films. As much as I like the home viewing experience, there’s something special about the idea of watching an old move in the theater. It offers something that you just can’t get from home video. Read More

#219: Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049: a science-fiction noir flick, and a disaster to try and market. Will the opening weekend box office numbers recover over time? Is Blade Runner 2049 a good movie? Does the sequel retread old ground or does it offer something unique against the original? Does it suffer from sequelitis, a rare and dangerous disease that bloats original concepts into bigger, badder, and often much more shallow and thoughtless characters and plot points? Was Ryan Gosling the right choice? Was bringing Ford back the right choice? Did Denis Villeneuve demonstrate an affinity for the source material’s theme and atmosphere? Was Hans Zimmer successful in offering up a soundscape relevant to the tone of the movie? There are plenty of questions and discussion points for this episode. Join Dean, Matthew, and Josh as they wade into the deep waters of the Blade Runner universe. Interlink.

#218: Willow

Matthew and Dean talk Willow and you will likely not be surprised to learn that they talk about the following: Diakini supremacy, Ron Howard’s cruel treatment of the pecks, Dean’s secret desires for Val Kilmer, Willow the do-nothing hero, and lots of low-blows on Willow and the rest of the 80s fantasy genre. If you are looking for reverence… look elsewhere, the lads take the piss out of this one at every turn. Sorry, not sorry.

#217: Black Hawk Down

Matthew called in sick this week, so it came down to Dean and Josh to discuss the bountied film (thanks Michael Claudio!) Black Hawk Down. The lads try their best to be entertaining this week, but if we’re being honest, this is heavy material. Despite wishing terrible things upon Legolas (not Blackburn), and having a laugh at Orlando Bloom’s expense, most of this episode was talking about the awful situation that unfolded at the Battle of Mogadishu. Josh’s perspective (as always) was invaluable but especially as it relates to understanding how missions are planned. Dean did some of his own research and listened to a couple interviews from Michael Durant (Pilot of Super Six Four), and US Ranger (PLT LDR), Larry Moores. Although the material this week is heavy, it was an honor to speak of the courage of the men who found themselves in an unthinkable situation in 1993 on October 3rd and 4th.

#216: Replicants, Sex Dolls, and Robots: A Blade Runner Retrospective

Matthew and Dean jump on the mics to talk about replicants, sex dolls, and robots. They manage to talk a little bit about Blade Runner, LSG’s FIRST podcast episode which needed a slight revisit ahead of Blade Runner 2049. They ask hard-hitting questions about dating in Japan, sexuality, the robot revolution, and they take a few minutes to explore a forum where people who purchase $4,000 sex dolls hang out. Are we going to bang robots into indifference? We aren’t sure, but it is fun to talk about.
