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

Welcome Back… Your dreams were your ticket out…Welc– Oh! Sorry.

TANK IS BACK!!

(I literally just made like tank noises over here like I was Capt. &$%#ing Stillman, I’m not even kidding… I scare myself sometimes)

We’ve got some catchin’ up to do! Tank shakes off the rust and we go over four flicks that one or both of us have seen, “Safe House”, “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”, “The Woman in Black” and “Chronicle”! Plus we do our weekly breakdown of the Dollars at the gates – the “Box Office Roundup”, before we eventually head into our feature discussion…

The Star Wars prequels.

Yes… In light of the recent rerelease of “The Phantom Menace”, the Tankster and I revisit the eve of the original release of the second trilogy, discuss our reactions, and reflect on the CGI redos of the originals.

It’s ok, you can listen. No one gets hurt.

As always, you can find us on iTunes by searching for (title pending) or Tank and Fogs, or download the episode directly, here!

We’d also like to tell everyone that we now have a Facebook page for the podcast, and we’d love for you to hook us up with a “like”! If you have iTunes, we’re also really looking for people who would be willing to take a few moments to leave us a review, and let other people know what you think of the show! The more reviews we have, the better it reflects on us, so if you’d like to show your support, that’s one of the ways you can really help us out!

Meanwhile, have a listen and enjoy!

Chronicle

“Chronicle” is the story of three teen friends who discover some sort of glowing alien artifact within an underground tunnel. After a brief period admiring it, they’re overcome in some psionic fashion, succumbing to unconsciousness. When they awake, they find themselves endowed with burgeoning telekinetic abilities.

The object is not addressed afterwards… on their return to the site, the tunnel has been filled in. But the object is not the focus of the movie, it’s simply the catalyst.

Instead, what we have is the story of three young men suddenly infused with super-powers. How they would use them, how they would feel about them, and how they would keep things together between the three of them when their philosophies began to diverge.

2012 Winter Movie Season Preview

Winter has come.

The Holidays being over, Hollywood now nestles into its burrow to await March, hibernating during the cold winter months. The cinematic highlights of January and February are typically the movies which were “released” in the prior year, but are only trickling out to cineplexes now.

As to NEW releases?

Let’s just say I hope you saved your nuts, my squirrely friends. :D Remember our “Tossin’ It Out There” thread from a few days back which asked which movies you were looking forward to the most in 2012? Scant few of these were mentioned there.

That’s not to say nothing’s happening! There’s new movies every week… Let’s take a look and see what Hollywood expects to hold us over between now and Spring…
