Episode 49 – Looper

 

It’s a Very Special Episode as Anne’s mom sits in to hear us freak out about the latest Rian Johnson joint Looper. It’s a fantastic film (maybe the best time travel movie ever made) – the spoiler portion of this week’s podcast begins at the 1 hr. 59 min. mark.

Before the Looper talk, however, we gab about Gravity Falls, The Amon Carter Museum, dueling Sherlock TV shows, The Mindy Kaling Project, J.K. Rowling’s new book The Casual Vacancy, Huxley’s Brave New World, Judge Dredd 3D, Anne Hathaway’s grubby breasteses in the new Les Miserables film, Tokyo Jungle, The Avengers, the book Mail Order Mysteries and magical copyright infringement (and that’s just all the stuff we’ve watched, read or played this week).

On the Geek Week In Review front there’s Sony offering day-one digital releases of Assassin’s Creed III and Resident Evil 6, Microsoft’s attempt to combat Playstation Plus by offering cheevo-fueled rewards to Xbox Live subscribers, our ideal cast for ‘the female Expendables‘ (Gina Carano, Bette Midler, Claire Blanchette, Jaime Lee Curties, Sigourney Weaver, Bridgette Nielson, Glenn Close and Helen Mirren), the Kickstarter for a documentary about Divine and America’s attempt to cash in on the Sherlock Holmes/Downton Abbey craze with NBC’s show about a crime-fighting (and presumably Tesla-thwarting) Thomas Edison and The History Channel’s historical soap opera about Sexy Andrew Carnegie & Co.
