podcast #309 - Pantsless




In this thrilling episode of Too Grumpy Critics, you'll find out who in Hollywood needs a sandwich, where to find the original Star Wars, and what the next installment of the Too Grumpy Movie Club will be. All sans pants.

0:00:00 - Nudity, eh? So it's going to be one of those shows, is it?

0:02:10 - Quality correspondence regarding last week's show; an email regarding Paul's review of "The Hangover", and three catching up on last week's Too Grumpy Movie Club pick, 'Flash Gordon'. One turns the movie into a wordy dissertation on a remote Scottish island, one has a terrible pun regarding scant literature in Essex, and one takes the word "flash" to horrifying extremes.

0:03:17 - Light week for Pablo this week, watching "Atonement" in full and re-living his childhood with a beautifully re-mastered (and anamorphic) fan version of the original "Star Wars", where Han shoots first and there's not even a whisper of it being episode four of anything.

0:27:35 - Busier week for the Spikester, taking in the Mythbusterseque "Bang Goes The Theory", trying to wrangle a fancy HD DVR from Dish Network, and enjoying two - count 'em - two paid iPod apps, "EyeTV" and "TuneIn Radio". Also, find out why "All The President's Men" is the benchmark for conspiracy nutjobs.

0:52:11 - In two weeks (October 8th) we'll be talking about the next installment of the Too Grumpy Movie Club - Martin Scorsese's "After Hours". It's available for instant streaming on Netflix in the US and on LoveFilm in the UK.

Paul and I HAVE liked lots o' the same movies. That last comment was my poor effort at being clever. :)

I am still laughing at the guy jumping outta the trunk, though.
