GG Goes To The Movies #10: That’s no moon…that’s a practical effect

On our latest episode of Geek Garage “Goes to the Movies”, David and Ted explore the amazing, but sometimes fantastically gross, world of practical effects in film.

We start out with a very brief history of practical effects, a few of the specific genres that utilized them, and the eventual evolution of special effects coming into play. Then, we dive into some of the most popular and well-known film titles (and their respective FX) that helped set the gold standard for practical effects in movies.

Ep. #34 – A Fresh Start: Anticipating MCU’s Phase 4

Marvel’s Phase 4 will be the most ambitious yet. Not only is the MCU dealing with the regular film arsenal, such as origin stories and sequels, but it’s also tackling original content in episodic form for Disney+. Between everything coming to theaters and Disney’s new streaming service, there are upwards of 14 titles to look forward to.

Today, my wonderful wife Lindsay joins me once again, as we discuss all the Phase 4 content Kevin Feige unleashed during this year’s SDCC. Obviously us fans don’t have tons of MCU info yet, so most of what we talk about is pure speculation. Regardless, we hope you enjoy this episode!

GG Goes To The Movies: Misunderstood Masterpiece – Fight Club at 20

I am Jack’s oddly-timed podcast.

It’s been (almost) 20 years since director David Fincher transformed Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Fight Club into one of the most cult-classic status films of all time. There is much to be said about this movie, albeit not much that hasn’t been said already. And because of that, Ted and I are choosing to focusing on this topic, of Fight Club being a misunderstood masterpiece.

Since its debut in 1999, Fight Club’s message (or messages) has/have been misconstrued by a LOT of people, as well as bent to fit certain narratives and/or agendas. So we’re here to set the record straight. Well, as straight as we can. So grab a friend, some soap, and take a walk with us down Paper St.

The Geek Garage is Headed to GalaxyCon 2019!

Oftentimes hard work, dedication, and persistence goes unnoticed and/or unappreciated. But we don’t work hard and bust our butts for recognition. We do so, because working hard at work worth doing is one of the more noble parts of life.

However, every once in a while, the sky opens up and drops something precious in your lap. And it’s because of all the hard work you’ve put forth, you’re able to recognize this precious thing. This is what has happened to the podcast.
