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

Hey what’s going on everyone? Tank and I are back with a brand new episode, and we set a new high water mark for the number of current reviews we cover for you.

Yup, after three weeks of theme episodes and a week off, we have a stockpile of movies to go through, a whopping NINE of them, in total. They are: Cloud Atlas, Flight, Wreck it Ralph, The Man with the Iron Fists, Lincoln, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Life of Pi, Red Dawn, and Rise of the Guardians!

I doubt we’ll ever squeeze so many current reviews into one episode again, folks. So check it out! We talk about almost every movie available at the megaplex in this one!

You can download the episode directly, here, or search for us on iTunes or Stitcher Radio by looking for (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!

Wreck-It Ralph

Similar to what “Toy Story” did with toys, “Wreck-It Ralph” envisions a world where video game characters are actually¬†alive, and free themselves from their game programing each night once the arcade closes. Free to visit other games and do things outside of their structured routines, the characters often demonstrate personality that exceeds their given scripts.

When the villain of the game “Fix-It Felix” chafes at being ostracized from the celebration of the game’s 30th anniversary, he sets out on a quest to prove he can be a hero, too.

The result is a fun, funny, family-friendly film that demonstrates the value of challenging the labels that world puts on you.

San Diego Comic-Con International 2012: Hall H, Thursday

Hello from the hotel… Thursday, day one of Comic-Con, is behind me. But what a memorable day it wound up being.

After getting worn down by the floor in the morning, I decided to check in to the Hall H line earlier than expected, and do a little blogging from the Hall H grass as I waited. Never happened. Unexpectedly, the line rolled right in to the auditorium, and I wound up getting in within 30 minutes or so. Practically no wait at all by Hall H standards.

The good news was, I was there in plenty of time for the Disney panel. The bad news was, for the second time in my three year Con career, I had to sit through a “Twilight” panel. LOL

But it wound up being an amazing day in the Hall. For having little plans or expectations on the day, I wound up seeing directors¬†Tim Burton and Sam Raimi, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and John C Reilly… and then Jackie Chan served as a warm up act for the best panel I’ve ever seen… “The Expendables 2″, which notably featured Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger sharing the same stage!

Click through to read about it, and see the pics of this amazing day in the Hall.
