Episode 165: The Sleeper Hears Ya, The Sleeper Don’t Care! (10th Anniversary Celebration)

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

On August 12, 2008, Mike C and Andy opened the Geek Salad studio for the first time and laid forth their first episode “The Sleeper Has Awakened.”  More than 165 shows later, Andy is joined by Mike G, Katherine, and Joe to celebrate Geek Salad’s 10th anniversary with “The Sleeper Hears Ya, The Sleeper Don’t Care!”

 

Join the team as they discuss their first introduction to the Geek Salad audience as well as discussing the biggest geek moments and movements of the past 10 years!  Included in the conversation are topics ranging from Disney buying up every property we care about, the mainstream popularity of cosplay, and the sexist, racist, shout factory hellscape that the internet has become!

Episode 149: Duck Boobs and Bat Nipples

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

We truly live in a golden age of Comic Book movies.  Much like the second golden age of comics in the early 1980’s, the Nerd Generation has never had such an embarrassment of riches….

 

….however, these are not the movies we’re discussing this week. We’ve again taken the votes of the Geek Salad listening audience and compiled the Top 15 Worst Comic Book Based movies of all time!  Join Joe, Andy, and Mike as they count down the head-scratchingly awful, the “How could they possibly continue to get Fantastic Four wrong???”, and Joe’s all but giving up on the DCEU…at least it’s getting harder for him to defend it!

 

Also, special thanks to David McLain, who lends his voice to discuss his choices for the mediocre movies of the genre!   Do him a solid and check out his book, The Time Traveler’s Resort and Museum, which is available to purchase at Amazon!

Episode 118 (Part 1): Star Wars: I Would Have Preferred Order 69!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away….

 

…actually, it was 1999, and Star Wars fans were handed the start of a movie trilogy that would divide the fans and create fierce debate!

 

Now the team of Geek Salad, along with Andy’s cousin Anna, a member of the Hasbro team bringing us some plastic awesomeness with the Force Awakens toy line, is here to break down what went right and what went, well…no so much…in Geek Salad Episode 118 (Part 1):  I Would Have Preferred Order 69!

 

Part 1 of the conversation includes talk about Episode I:  The Phantom Menace as well as their social media feedback!

 

Part 2, which will be available next week, will include talk about Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, as well as the Clone Wars cartoons and a discussion about the new Force Awakens toys!

Episode 115 Deleted Scene (Comic Con Chat)

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Here it is, a little late, but still fun all the same. Cut from episode 115, but saved from the editing room floor (actually a hard drive), is the discussion the Geek Salad crew had on some of the trailers that had their debut at Comic Con.

Will Andy's ambivalence for all things DC keep him from enjoying the Batman v Superman trailer? Will Deadpool swear up a storm in his trailer? If you're listening to this clip, you probably already know the answers. Still, it's a fun conversation.

A Few Marvel/DC Thoughts from San Diego ComicCon

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

So this is all based from sources that I read, so I'm sure I'll get something wrong here or there:

Thor: The Dark World: Early word is that it looks underwhelming.  We said that 2 years ago and were proven extremely wrong on that.  I've really enjoyed Chris Hemsworth's interpretation of Thor (adding more humor than we were expecting) and Tom Hiddleson is fucking genius....worst case, it turns into Iron Man 2.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The concept art is selling this movie right now.  It should be as good as the first movie....and as long as they get the nationality of the Winder Soldier's handlers right, it's still a thousand times better than the Matt Salinger movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy: In a conversation I had with a friend, he was worried that it would get weird by being left in the hands of the director of Tromeo and Juliette.  First off...Disney isn't going to be giving James Gunn a very long leash.  Secondly, the movie features a talking tree and a gun toting raccoon....what could possibly be weird about that?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Joss Whedon is going to be fully involved in this...Coulson's back (resurrection, apparently, totally blow off), as is Agent Hill (Colbie Smulders will be needing a job after How I Met Your Mother wraps this season).  And Ron Glass from Firefly plays an agent, opening the door for everybody from Whedon's stock players to make an appearance!

X-Men: Days of Futures Past: First off, in 2011 when we had 4 superhero movies released, X-Men First Class turned in the best production!  Now, we're melding the two casts together.  It could be awesome, or it could be a convoluted mess.  But Peter Dinklage and Sentinels should balance it towards the "awesome" column!

The Flash/JLA:  Imagine, if you will, that Hawkeye got a stand-alone movie before Thor.  Then, imagine that you spent two hours watching a guy who's sole ability is to be really good at archery.  Don't get me wrong, I looooove me some Hawkeye.  But Thor needed the added benefit of being fully drawn out in a movie prior to being featured in The Avengers.  Now, replace "Hawkeye" with "The Flash" and "Thor" with "Wonder Woman."  The Flash is a decent character (albeit, with a rouge's gallery that consists of villains too stupid for Superman to face), but I fear for this turning into another Green Lantern, and nobody wants that...

Superman/Batman: I guess the bigger question is, do they just simply replace Christian Bale with somebody else (and with a 2015 release date, they better get cracking at finding that person) and continue the continuity of the Nolanverse, or start fresh?  I don't think that Batman's origin needs to be retold again, but establishing what type of Batman this will end up being (Nolan, Burton, Schumacher, or *shudder* West) remains the bigger question.  This is definitely a step in the right direction, but with Man of Steel struggling to hit the $300 million domestic marker (and fall substantially short of the $1 Billion world marker that Iron Man 3 hit earlier in the summer) they will need to tread lightly and really have a plan going in to all of this....

What are your thoughts?

Go forth and be nerdful!

Andy
