Geek Hard Podcast: Episode 286

On this episode we review The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and we also talk with actor and writer Robin Dunne about the Kickstarter for his first graphic novel Rattletrap.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review

With a director more accustomed to shooting good looking and well handled action sequences, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is just a slight notch better than its predecessor, but nearly every other positive and negative from the first film remains exactly the same.

Epic Review

Shoddy and forgettable, Epic might be one of the most ill titled films ever. It seems more like wishful thinking than an actual title. It's the first major high profile misfire of the summer.

Red Dawn Review

By the already low standards that a Red Dawn remake would have, it's not very good, but not as flat out awful as one would secretly suspect. It's stupid, has a small handful of good action scenes, is unevenly acted, and is still pretty xenophobic despite it being more ridiculous this time out.

This Week in DVD: 7/31/12

Not much new to report on the home video front this week aside from a pair of teen movies: the extremely successful and entertaining Detention and the only kind of okay LOL.

Interview: Joseph Kahn

We talk to music video maven and Detention director Joseph Kahn about his genre bending, fast paced teen movie labour of love, what films aimed at today's young adults tend to forget, and how it all ultimately ties into our own retro loving culture.

The Hunger Games Review

Transcending its young adult novel source, The Hunger Games rises above its modest trappings to become a truly great film. Well, that’s not entirely true, but much like some of the film’s characters would say, it’s close enough to spin it into something.
