New Episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!!

What’s up, what’s up, what’s up?

Here we go, Wednesday – hump day – the day for brand new episodes of (title pending)!

We have a good one lined up for you this week! After taking a little heat for omitting “Watchmen” from my top ten superhero list last week, I answer in (title pending) fashion to open our show! And then we finally launch the successor to “Has Tank Seen Scarface”! 

After the Box Office Round-Up, we offer up reviews of “Step Up Revolution” (well, ok, I do, LOL) and then we both tell it like it is on “The Watch”! Seeing as “The Watch” was just out, our feature discuss revolves around the “Frat Pack”. Tank and I take a high level overview of each of the gang, and debate what their best and worst movies were. Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jack Black, Paul Rudd and the Wilson brothers! They certainly have a wide range of quality represented in their collective filmography, that’s for damn sure!

Here’s the link to download or listen to the podcast directly, or as always, you can listen to us on iTunes by looking for (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!

When you’ve given us a listen, be sure to stop by our Facebook page and join in the conversation! You can find it here!

The Watch

After a 3rd shift security guard gets murdered, the manager of the store (Ben Stiller) he worked at decides to start a neighborhood watch. He attracts a ragtag crew of volunteers to join him, including a family man looking for some “Me Time” (Vince Vaughn), a psycho cop wanna-be (Jonah Hill) and a newcomer to the area who’s hoping to meet some ladies (Richard Ayoade). They set out to find the killer, but what they find is much, much worse.

Their town has been invaded by aliens.

It’s a premise with promise, but the material fails to deliver much. Worse yet, the stars, who are going to be the reason that most people show up for this, completely fail to show up.

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

“Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” continues the adventures of Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller), Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the Giraffe (David Schwimmer), and Gloria the Hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) as they try to return to New York and the zoo that they once called home. They’re able to make their way from Africa to Monte Carlo, but from there, intend to seek out the help of the penguins in order to cross the Atlantic and return to the United States. Of course, things don’t go as planned, and the animals wind up having to take cover from an animal control officer in a traveling circus.

It’s got plenty of comedy and some fun actions sequences, but the bright colors and happy characters can’t disguise the fact that there isn’t a lot under the hood.

Tower Heist

Tower Heist (as I’m sure you all know by now) is the story of a group of hotel employees who, after being defrauded by one of their hotel’s residents, decide to even the score by breaking into his apartment and robbing him. It features Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Michael Peña and others in a sort of “Robin Hood and his Merry Men” for the Bernie Madoff era.

I just wish it had been funnier.

Now showing on cable: “Little Fockers”

Premiering this weekend on HBO was 2010’s “Little Fockers”, starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro.

“Little Fockers” is the third movie in the “Meet the Parents” series. “Meet the Parents” was released in 2000, “Meet the Fockers” in 2004 and “Little Fockers” in 2010. I mention this to bring attention to the fact that this film is a full decade removed from “Meet the Parents”, which may not have been the greatest comedy ever, but it had its moments.

This movie, however, had none. It was excruciatingly unfunny.
