Well, Crunchroasters, this is it. The final episode of Season One.
Thank you for sticking with us this season while we found our footing. We wanted to give you a big ending with a double episode, since A Quiet Place Part 2 was supposed to be out by now, but Covid-19 had other plans. We will be back to give you a one-off review of Part 2 when it comes out, but other than that we're looking at returning full time sometime around August-October. Keep checking our social media for an exact date.
Right now, enjoy A Quiet Place and we'll see you out there!
For many, the epitome of science fiction is UFOs/aliens. For others, space battles. But for a growing number of sci-fi fans, they're eager for one thing...
GIANT. ROBOT. COMBAT.
In this episode find out what Geoff and Vince think of this sci-fi staple and how it was handled in this film.
Tron: Legacy came out 28 years, 5 months and 8 days (in the US) after Tron... luckily, you don't have to wait that long for the Crunchroast episode! But you may want to give the original episode a listen before finding out how Geoff and Vince feel about the sequel!
Whoa, this is a LOOOOONG episode! We've got a guest co-host with us for this one... my brother John! There's so much in this series of movies we didn't know where to stop, but we had a lot of fun with it!
In 1957 a little sci-fi movie came out that shook people... The Fly, starring Vincent Price. In 1986, visionary filmmaker David Cronenberg released a reboot of that film (possibly one of the first 'reboots'... they weren't even called that yet!) starring Jeff Goldblum, and again, this film shook people.
Geoff and Vince discuss how they felt after watching the 1986 version. One of them grew up watching it... for the other, this was the first viewing. How did that affect their opinions? And who will you agree with?
The Original Trilogy is something of a sacred cow in sci-fi... die hard fans will tolerate very little criticism of it, and will excuse even the most blatant mistakes/quirks in the films. Geoff and Vince welcome a co-host on board for this episode and he brings a unique wit and point of view to the discussion. Trust us, this is unlike any previous episode... you'll love it!
As a comic book character, Iron Man captured the imagination of many young men and women. Geoff and Vince cover the transition of the character from the page to the screen, as well as the movies' place in the MCU.
With the release of Terminator: Dark Fate looming on the horizon, Geoff and Vince talk about the highs and lows of what could possibly be the definitive cyborg films, Terminator and Terminator 2. Plus, the first appearance of our Science News segment!
In the inaugural episode, Geoff and Vince talk about two classic sci-fi films: The Day the Earth Stood Still and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Join them as they debate the best and worst moments of both films!
