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!

Ep. #33 – The Walkman Celebrates 40 Years

We celebrate the Walkman’s 40th anniversary by diving into a bit of its history. We also discuss the evolution of portable music as a whole, from the late 70s up until recently.

As a warm-up to our main story, we took some time to briefly go over few things that have been in the news recently. These consisted of the Sony/Disney battle for Spider-Man, the announcement of the 4th Matrix film, and the next (and last?) Bond film titled “No Time To Die”.

Review | Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home was released in theaters this past week, and so far it has been pretty well-received. Film critics and moviegoers alike have been praising the film regarding everything from its originality and ability to be a stand-alone Spidey flick, to the more-than-decent job it did at playing “cleanup” after we had our hearts torn open (again) from Avengers: Endgame. Currently, it’s sitting at a comfortable 96% fan rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and for the most part I personally agree with the overall consensus.

Also, I should say right now, SPOILERS AHEAD!

We’re back! In today’s episode, my good friends Mark Conwell and Jared Rigsby join me to discuss the much anticipated Avengers: Inifnity War. I’ll go ahead and throw this out there: **SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!**

During segment one, we each talk about our overall thoughts and feelings on the film, what we did/didn’t like about it, and give a letter grade for the movie.

During segment two, we had more of a free-wheeling discussion about Inifinity War. We touched on a few things such as what we thought about Thanos as a villian, how well the Russo brothers balanced out the huge ensemble cast, and our favorite fight scenes.

And for segment three, we threw out some of our predictions on where we think the MCU will go from here, how they’ll wrap up Phase 3, and what we might expect after that.
