DSBSE -Ep10- Christmas Special: Men with Brooms (Part 1)

Submitted by DoctorSquee on Sun, 24/12/2017 - 23:45

In our Christmas special we talk about the Paul Gross film Men with Brooms, starring him & Leslie Neilson. Our guest is Mountie Johnny Whitetrash... it goes of the rails extra quick! We also give our pitches for a Due South episode we would have liked to have seen and we play the Paul Gross Christmas track 'Santa Drives a Pick-up Truck'. This movie contains strong language, so does our conversation about it, so be warned.

Another promising project, another let down. Spoilers to come

Story

We meet out royal family on a technologically-shielded moon city, Attilan, and learn that they have been there for quite some time, after having fled from tensions on earth. The story then quickly proceeds to tear the protagonists apart and leave them scattered on earth to start their individual journeys. Meanwhile, Maximus, the rebel brother of king Black Bolt, is left to manipulate their home into his own.

The Defenders

Submitted by Spindles on Mon, 21/08/2017 - 15:51

It’s fair to say that I was excited for The Defenders. The Netflix MCU branch has been strong throughout (bar Iron Fist, comments about which you can see in my review) and the potential in a get-together was high. Much as Avengers Assemble brought together the feed from five films into one of the best superhero movies ever, Defenders was poised to do the same with five shows feeding into a more gritty and aggressive cousin of the film epic. What we were handed did not live up to that hype nor potential. It wasn’t overall bad but just suffered in several ways in which it shouldn’t have.

Iron Fist

Submitted by Spindles on Sat, 25/03/2017 - 13:19

I find myself, once again, short of words when it comes to describing Iron Fist as a show but unlike before it is not for good reasons. We are introduced to a homeless Danny Rand as he attempts to return to western society and reintegrate into his family’s company whilst convincing the world that he’s not actually dead. We then learn that in the 15 years since his supposed death he has been training to be the ‘Iron Fist’: a warrior of martial arts who is able to focus his chi and enhance his hand as a weapon. He has returned to use his strengths for good and then things happen.

Westworld S01 E01 - The Original

Submitted by Spindles on Tue, 18/10/2016 - 10:00

West.

Or rather Westeros.

It will soon be gone.

With only a few episodes left, until the Game of Thrones is won (or lost maybe), HBO looks westward, hoping to capture the lightning again.

So we move to Earth in the future.

America to be precise, or rather a simulation of the old west.

The Game of Thrones comparison is not a coincidence. This show is being touted by the network as the next GOT, even the continuity announcer before the UK Sky Atlantic broadcast referred to it as such.

A lot is riding on this.

Agent Carter S02 E02 - A View in The Dark

Submitted by Spindles on Fri, 05/02/2016 - 10:00

Ah, the sad life of the Hollywood scientist.

They tend to fall into two camps…

The first is the Evil scientist, hyper-efficient, thoroughly immoral, clutching for power and mastery over the elements, man, and God. He will eventually fall victim to a horrendously gruesome death at the hands of his own creations.

Then there is the Good scientist. The flawed genius, performing calculus before they were potty trained, the ugly social outcast, sporadically inspirational, unflappably moral, and prone to using the phrase…

Doctor Who - Season Nine Episodes 1 - 2

Submitted by Spindles on Sun, 27/09/2015 - 15:52

Given that this season seems to be comprised mostly of two-parters, we'll be releasing our reviews after both episodes have aired.

So, we're back again with a new series. We've done a fair bit of dissection and discussion around the trailers for this season on NerdVsWorld and I'm happy to say that it seems a lot of them haven't taken too long to be either proven correct or otherwise.
