Fourth Chair Army Invasion | Mike Drop

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Yesterday was the fifth Tuesday of the month, which means it's time for another exciting episode of the Nerd Lunch Fourth Chair Army Invasion. This one is an all-Mike episode when Michael DiGiovanni, Mike Downs, Mike Westfall, and I discuss our favorite pop culture Mikes, then drop said characters onto a Battle-Royale-style island to fight to the death. Who is the ultimate Mike? Only one way to find out!

Dragonfly Ripple | Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

David and I hash out why this is one of David's least favorite Marvel movies, but one of my favorites. There's some Agents of Shield discussion along the way, but mostly it's all spies and lies and the mortality of Nick Fury.

Nerd Lunch | Movie Monsters Sweet 16

Because I love Halloween and horror, one of my favorite episodes of Nerd Lunch every year is their annual Halloween Special with recurring guest Jay Ryan (The Sexy Armpit, The Purple Stuff Podcast). So it was super fun to get to be on that episode this year with Jay and of course hosts Pax and Jeeg.

For this episode, we each brought lists of our favorite movie monsters, put them all into a Sweet Sixteen bracket, and then voted (with absent Nerd Lunch host CT breaking ties via text) to see who the ultimate movie monster is. It was a lot of fun and there are some fantastic matchups in there, so celebrate the season and see if you agree with our choices.

Dragonfly Ripple | Thor: The Dark World (2013)

David and I discuss the evolution of Loki's character arc, the Thor/Jane 'ship, and whether Malekith is a good villain. And of course, lots of connections to the other Marvel movies.

Hellbent for Letterbox Episode 50 | Young Guns (1988) and Young Guns II (1990)

To celebrate the 50th episode of Hellbent for Letterbox, Pax and I set aside the Pony Express and Whatchoo Been Westernin' to focus exclusively on the two Young Guns movies starring Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, and a couple of posses' worth of other '80s Brat Packers.

We're both crazy about Young Guns, but have different opinions on the sequel. It's a great discussion, so make yourself comfortable and settle in for this double-size celebration.

Countdown to Halloween

I had planned to do a Countdown to Halloween series again this year, but looming deadlines (both writing and podcasting) are going to make that impossible. At least on this particular site.

If you want more Halloween goodness than you can handle though, follow my Tumblr, because it is a non-stop spook party over there.
