We are wrapping up our “Villains” theme month with a quick retrospective! We’d like to thank everyone that took the time to participate in our Facebook polls, and/or engaged in conversation regarding your favorite villains from fiction, movies, TV, and comics.
Our “Evil Villains” month is officially underway! For those of you just joining us, I’ll give you a quick rundown: Each week in April, Ted and I will discuss some of our favorite bad guys from popular mediums. Here’s the breakdown of episodes you can look forward to…
We’re celebrating our 50th episode of the podcast with one of our favorite comic book heroes of all time: Batman! First we chat about some of the more noteworthy comic book iterations as well as some of our personal favorites. We also touch on the good/bad/ugly of the Batman film history, and close things out with some speculations on Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” due out next year.
For our very first Star Trek episode, we take a look at the history of the long-running show, it’s cultural impact on both nerd-based and regular society, and ask serious questions such as “What’s the best iteration of Star Trek, and why is it The Next Generation?”
The podcast welcomes Jaren Prince, a one-of-a-kind Silent Bob cosplayer, avid fan of Kevin Smith movies, and just an all-around good dude. Jaren, David, and Ted chat about Smith’s filmography, especially his most recent film “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot”. Jaren also talks about how he got into Silent Bob cosplay, attending comic conventions, and even meeting Kevin Smith himself!
“Goes to the Movies” cohost Ted White joins David to discuss Todd Phillips’ new film Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix. Ted also does a mini deep-dive into a few iterations of the Joker, his appearances in the comics and in film, and the different portrayals by actors over the years.

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.

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!
