The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, How to Build a Girl, Far Cry 4, Weekend Picks

Logan’s on the road this week, but that won’t keep us from podcasting! Here’s a Christmas week episode. We start by reviewing The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. How does it compare to the other installments? Is it possible to be surprised by a Peter Jackson Tolkien movie any more?

Logan (kinda) mini reviews the novel How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran. Bob gives his verdict on Far Cry 4. Will it be in the running for his game of the year?

In weekend picks, Logan points to Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle. Bob leans towards Big Eyes or The Imitation Game.

Boyhood, Sons of Anarchy, The Newsroom, Weekend Picks

We reach back again to catch up with Boyhood. You know the film making device–filming the same actors over the course of twelve years–so how effective is it? How well does the movie work beyond the technique?

Logan mini reviews the final seasons of two shows: Sons of Anarchy and The Newsroom. Despite some fondness for each, it was time for both of them to end.

In weekend picks, Logan mentions the final week of The Colbert Report and the Sing-Off special. Bob’s excited for the third Hobbit movie, but also might point us towards Mr. Turner.

Let’s rock!

Magic in the Moonlight, Weekend Picks

We reached back a few months to review Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight. Is it another in Allen’s line of recent successes? How’s the chemistry between Colin Firth and Emma Watson?

After that, it’s a full segment for weekend picks. Syfy’s Ascension starts next week. Netflix has two releases: Ron Swanson: American Ham and Marco Polo. Bob likes Exodus and Top Five, and should also probably get around to Inherent Vice. Be sure to follow us on twitter for our final pick.

The Theory of Everything, The League, Weekend Picks

This week we review The Theory of Everything. Who knew this much about Stephen Hawking? Turns out his personal life is really quite interesting. How much science do we learn along the way?

Bob mini reviews the sixth season of The League. And compares it to Seinfeld(!) in certain ways.

In weekend picks, we talk about indirectly watching Peter Pan Live via twitter, and Bob can’t quite decide yet between Wild and Life Partners. Or maybe Comet? Better stay tuned on Twitter for the final word.

Let’s rock!

The Hunger Games, Whiplash, Video Games, Weekend Picks

Is it time for a new Hunger Games movie already? We break it down: what are the best parts? How does it pull off the first-half-of-a-book factor?

Bob mini reviews a movie Logan mini reviewed a while ago: Whiplash. In case you’re wondering, it’s still great.

We catch up on the video games we’re each playing. Far Cry 4, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and the World of Warcraft expansion all come up. 

Thanksgiving weekend means there are no TV weekend picks. In movies, though, Bob pulls the trigger on The Imitation Game.

Let’s rock!
