The World’s End

worlds_end_ver2

Similar to their previous collaborations with director Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”), “The World’s End” features Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as friends coming to the realization that they’re surrounded by hostile forces. This time out it’s robots, who have taken over the town where they and their friends went to school together.

“The World’s End” feels a bit scattershot at times, but fans will consider it part of its “charm”. It’s a film that has a bit of bittersweet nostalgia for misspent youth, a bit of railing against the conformity of the world, and plenty of sequences where middle aged men kick robotic ass.

We’re the Millers

Were the Millers

A motley crew composed of a drug dealer, a geeky virgin, a stripper and a homeless runaway team up to smuggle an enormous shipment of marijuana across the Mexican border, posing as a family. As you can imagine, they wind up being more than a little dysfunctional as a unit. Comedy ensues as they try to evade angry drug dealers, get past border guards, elude the DEA, and of course, deal with each other.

PodcastLadies and gentlemen, boys and girls… Here’s this weeks TPMP!

Mr Tanski has the listeners covered on two limited release movies this week, “The To Do List” and “The Way, Way Back”, and then we both join forces to discuss “The Wolverine”!

Then Tank and I play a little game of live grenades, where we throw “Top Five” topics at each other with no prep time and see what we each come up with! It was a bit of a spur of the moment idea that really came out well. We had a lot of fun with it, and I think you’ll enjoy!

Big changes ahead at FMR

ChangeHey everyone, how’s it going?

By now I’m sure you’ve noticed the changes in FMR over the past few weeks. It’s been a few months since the last MTESS, and a couple of weeks without a “Tossin’ It Out There”. I didn’t want to make any rash decisions or announce anything prematurely, but there’s no avoiding it now: Changes are on the way for FMR.

For the past two years, my employment situation has been… extraordinarily conducive to blogging. Let’s just say that. Recently, however, I’ve taken a job that is, well… not as conducive. LOL. I have much less free time to work with, and no capability of blogging from work (as I have in the past, sshhhhhh….).

Fear not, however! Friends of FMR are coming to the rescue!
