WBG Episode 160: Clowning With Crystal Scott

This week the entire We Be Geeks team is together again. Han Solo is headed to Marvel Comics with a five issue mini series by Marjorie Liu and Mark Brooks. Crystal Scott was the guest of honor tonight, and she was such a trooper answering questions left and right. Crystal is currently making her first feature film based on her award winning short, Girl Clown. Crystal talked about her own experience as a clown, and how she became one, along with her some crazy clown stories. Crystal also has some super secret projects upcoming, but she isn’t allowed to talk about them yet. She was allowed to talk about her role in Girl Code though, and she was happy that Mike had watched it. No plans right now for a recurring role for her, but you never know. Crystal’s Kickstarter for Girl Clown is doing quite well, and the rewards are fantastic. You can check it out here(http://girlclownfeature.com/kickstarter )and support it. Every little bit helps.

WBG Episode 159: Walking In Summerland With Malcolm Danare

This week on the show, the gang starts off with a bit of hockey talk before getting to the geekery.  Hey, geeks can like sports too, right?  The topic of the night is Oscars as we discuss some of the highlights and lowlights from Sunday’s award show.  We discuss the In Memoriam section which was touching, but we also remarked on the fact that Abe Vigoda was left sadly left out.  We then discuss Mad Max winning almost all of the awards it was nominated for, except the big ones of course, and mention the all too brief appearance of our favorite droids for Star Wars.  We veer slightly into the political briefly as we discuss the awkward appearance of Stacey Dash on the Oscars before moving on to other topics.

Of course, a discussion about the Oscars would naturally segue into talk of the Gambit movie, right   The crew discusses the recent announcement that Fox has pulled the Gambit movie from their 2016 schedule, and have announced the addition of two more unnamed movies in 2017 and 2018.  Mike then makes a case for replacing Channing Tatum as Gambit for actor Lucas Black.  Perhaps that is not such a bad idea.  The standing theory seems to be that one of the newly announced movies could be Deadpool 2, and we speculate that an X-Force movie could happen soon as well.

Discussing new superhero movies leads us into a discussion about our dissatisfaction with the Amazing Spider-Man movies, and we as a whole declare that we don’t want to see anymore origin stories rebooted for the heroes that have already had their origins told.

Next, we discuss the latest news in the lead role casting for the future Iron Fist show, including our thoughts  on the complaints on the internet that Marvel and Netflix did not take the opportunity to cast an Asian actor as Iron Fist. We finish off our discussion with the 2016 Razzie awards awarded the worst movie of 2015 to the Fantastic Four.  I can’t think of a movie more deserving of a Razzie.

We then welcome our guest for the evening, actor Malcolm Danare who came on to discuss his latest movie, the horror film Smothered.  During the interview with Malcolm, we discuss his friendship with the director of Smothered, John Schneider, who is best known from a little show called The Dukes of Hazard.  Malcolm then tells about some of his other projects, such as the intriguing movie Summerland Project before we grill him about some of his past movies. Malcolm has starred in several movies that our listeners will recognize, including Lords of Discipline, Flashdance, Christine,  European Vacation, Catholic Boys (aka Heaven Help Us), Robin Hood, Men in Tights.  Malcolm also spends some time talking about his role in the nineties  version of Godzilla, which leads into a discussion about his voiceover work in several different animated shows.

WBG Epsiode 158: Again With The R Rating

Let’s talk about the weather. We start with your geek weather report. Shout-outs were given to the awesome Patty Jean Robinson, as well as Jessica Cameron. Also shout was given to Tom Hodges who has restarted their Kickstarter. We then go to the new Marvel news, starting with the new footage leaked from the set of Doctor Strange. We all agree that the costume and casting are great. We discuss the synopsis of the new Marvel show Most Wanted. We then move into discussing Stan Lee’s cameo in Deadpool, and what his complaint was with the cameo. We also talk the rumors of the last Wolverine movie being rated R and adapting the Old Man Logan storyline. That takes off on a tangent of why all the new movies are rated R. We then switch gears to DC. We talk the Batman V Superman length and possible R rating. Again with the R rating. We also talk DC rebirth and what it will mean. We talk Titans and excitement for that coming out. Julz arrives and we talk Die Hard and our homework assignments. Brett still needs to watch Labyrinth and Derek needs to watch Big Hero Six. We then talk the new DC comedy Powerless. It has some pretty big names involved in it. Vanessa Hudgens, Alan Tudyk, and Danny Pudi. Brett calls that it will not last a season. We end with some Star Wars trivia.

WBG Episode 157: The Zone Continues With Bruce Zick

This week on We Be Geeks, the team is all together for this awesome episode! Deadpool is the topic of the year. Not only because the movie was so spectacular, but because of the rating. Don’t get us wrong, Deadpool should absolutely have a giant R, but some parents were still took their little ones to see it. The team have some strong opinions on this. Also, will this set the bar for other comic movies? Only time will tell. The second half of the show starred the extremely talented, Bruce Zick from the Zone Continuum. Zick gives an up close and personal look at his inspiration behind the book. Not only does he write it, but he does the artwork for it as well. He shared his excitement for this book since it’s been over 20 years since the original Zone Continuum books were released. Zick is very in tune with his audience as the new book contains elements from the original story as well as new stories. So new readers and old readers alike can enjoy it. Bruce also talked about his background as an animator, and how much of it changes before it even hits the big screen. He also has a super secret project coming up that the team is dying to know about, but alas must wait. Bruce talked a little about his work on Atomic Legion, and Mike totally geeked out. The Zone Continuum hits comic book stores February 24th, and even though Valentine’s Day is over, buy a copy for a loved one. It’s sure to not disappoint.
The team also added a new segment to the show as well. Star Wars trivia.  Each week the team will be answering more questions. Stay tuned!

WBG Episode 156: And There It Is with Tom Hodges

Mike, Brett, and Derrick begin the episode by discussing the news that the CW show The Flash, and the CBS show Supergirl will finally be listening to fan demands, and will be crossing over in an upcoming episode.  We are all excited for that news.  That discussion leads us to talk about some of the more interesting plot points of both Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.     Another bit of news we discuss is the announcement that there will soon be a new version of the eighties classic show MacGuyver coming to the airwaves.  Brett and Derrick have loved MacGuyver since they were kids, and are very interested in this project.  Mike, on the other hand, is not much of a MacGuyver fan, but perhaps a new version will sway him.     All that MacGuyver talk leads us to the discussion of the MacGuyver episodes of Mythbuster.  We discuss some of our favorite moments of that show which is now on the final season believe it or not.     Finally, the We Be Geeks crew interview comic artist Tom Hodges who has just started a project on Kicstarter to fund a new venture he calls Antiis comics.  As Tom tells us, Antis is an anagram for the phrase “and there it is” which has an important meaning to him.  Tom, for those who don’t know has worked on some Lucasfilm comic projects, and has also created the map for a potential Star Wars Disney theme park which you have no doubt seen floating around the internet.  We discuss all of that over the course of the interview.  Tom was a great guest, and his Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1187933918/antiis-comics-presents-phase-one-launch) is worth checking out.

WBG Episode 154: Matt The Undercover Sith

This was a busy week for the We Be Geeks crew. In this episode we discuss the news that the CW network might be removing all of their shows from Netflix to focus on the CBS streaming app. The discussion then briefly ventures into football territory, a topic that is hard to avoid this time of year. We then venture into a discussion about Stan Lee’s thoughts about a Star Wars/Marvel movie crossover. Would that be a good idea? Or would such a thing be too far-fetched? We give our opinions on the topic. After discussing Stan Lee, the discussion naturally rotates into a discussion about the upcoming Deadpool movie.

From Marvel, we move on to DC and discuss the casting of Jonah Hex on the new CW show Legends of Tomorrow. After that, we talk about a charity event in England that is having a theater showing of the movie Labyrinth. The We Be Geeks crew then learns that Brett has never seen Labyrinth, and give him a homework assignment to watch the movie. Talking about Layrinth and David Bowie leads into a discussion about Alan Rickman, who also passed away recently, and we then learn that Julz has never seen Die Hard, leading to another homework assignment.

In between talking about rumors of Darth Vader appearing in Rogue One and Adam Driver on Saturday Night Live, Mike mentions some of the other podcasts on the We Be Geeks podcast. From there, the conversation naturally flows to the topics of the Squatty Potty, this year’s Oscar snubs, Channing Tatum, and our love, or lack thereof, of the Fast and Furious franchise.

WBG Episode 152: Our Star Wars Awakening

This week on We Be Geeks: It’s the first episode of 2016! No guest this week, but there was plenty to talk about. Star Wars was on our brains and hearts this week, as it should be. Speculations as to some unanswered questions were had, as well as why is Rey missing from some of the top selling toys? Considering she is one of the main characters, we discuss why we think she definitely needs more merchandise. Is Netflix trying to pull one over on us? According to them, we should be seeing a Dredd show coming out, wait for it…on April 1st 2016. Why haven’t we heard anything about it, and why is it on that particular day? So many questions, so few answers. One thing is for sure, we all want a Dredd show. “Make it so”, Netflix.
