This week we are celebrating a GIGANTIC milestone for the podcast: The big triple-digits!
In this short episode, I explain why we’ve been absent for a while now, and what you can expect in our future. SPOILER ALERT: It’s all good things! Awesome material, consistent episodes, more ways to enjoy the podcast, and even some public appearances. Tune in to get the full scoop!
Aaaaand we’re back! Thank you so much to all of you amazing, loyal listeners for hanging on with us during our temporary hiatus. Words simply cannot express how grateful we are for your continued support, especially through trying times!
For our first episode back (and very first episode recorded in the new studio!), Ted and I discuss two summer films that we really enjoyed.
Midsommar, the sophomore effort by Ari Aster (Hereditary, 2018), is a psychotropic-induced fever dream (or nightmare) that explores unconventional ways of making audiences extremely uncomfortable. Ted and I discuss just that, along with some of the cinematography choices, the actors’ performances, and how we’re both officially scared shitless of traveling to Sweden. If you were a fan of Hereditary, you will most likely enjoy Aster’s follow-up film!
The Art of Self-Defense, directed by Riley Stearns, brings new meaning to the Dark/Black Comedy genre. We talked about how Jesse Eisenberg was born to play this role, of a socially awkward geek-type who learns to stick up for himself, by enrolling in Karate lessons. There wasn’t much that we didn’t like/love about this film. It came out of nowhere, and totally blew us away. If you are a fan of dark comedies (such as Death to Smoochy, Seven Psychopaths, and Burn After Reading), then you will most likely get a kick out of this film.
We will be back VERY soon with our next episode of “Goes To The Movies”, where we talk about Tarantino’s 9th film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood! Additionally, the Geek Garage main show will also be back soon, with our brand-new segment titled “Geek For Your Week”, so stay tuned!
Booksmart is the directorial debut from Olivia Wilde, and Anna is the latest effort by the one and only Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, Lucy). This week on “Geek Garage Goes To The Movies”, Ted and David discuss their thoughts and feelings on both films.
