    Movie Moan - Bulgaria Makes A Better Future World

    Poor Jamie.  It seems as if Louisiana has been displaced as every studio's go-to place to shoot.  Bulgaria is where it's at.  Find out how this week in a show that starts on such a bunny trail that Superman had to spin the world back in time just to redeem it.

    Joining Jamie and Phil for a near 90 minutes of fun is the delightful Mr. Edward Douglas of ComingSoon.net:-

    2:40 mins - Holy 1960's action figures Batman!

    6:40 mins - Ok, let's try this whole podcast thing again.

    17:55 mins - Who out of the three of us saw 'A Good Day To Die Hard' which of us took a stand against UK censorship?  Oh darn, well that's spoilt it.

    26:05 mins - Han Solo returns to the big screen and the future Star Wars universe feels a little bit smaller already.

    42:25 mins - So just what is Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' all about?  Phil has a crazy idea.

    48:35 mins - Why Sam Mendes should return to direct a James Bond film.........eventually, but not right away.

    61:45 mins - Edward and Jamie say their final words on the most interesting Academy Awards in years.  Meanwhile, Phil explains what exactly they have planned for the actors who played Bond.

    82:10 mins - Edward has a very weird Sean Connery rumour to throw at us and Phil tells you what special treat you're gonna get next week.

    Movie Moan - Is The Academy Run By The Galactic Empire?

    ...just one example of the bunny trail one can go off on in discussing a single insignificant line of dialogue in Star Wars and how there is certainly some potential to expanding that story with solo films.  So are me, Jamie and Gabe Toro (for the ten mins of the show he is able to appear for) completely happy about it.

    Of course not.  This is Movie Moan:

    5:30 mins - Wedge?  Porkins?  Lobot?  IG-88?  Yak Face?  Which character needs their story told in the first installment of 'Star Wars Origins'?

    23:40 mins - Which blockbuster 30 second spot won the Superbowl and how badly did WB drop the ball by not showing up?

    34:10 mins - Duncan Jones directing 'World of Warcraft'?  It'll probably never happen but let's play along for now.

    46 mins - Plaaaaaaaaaanet Huuuuuuuuuuulk..........IN SPAAAAAAAAACE!

    Movie Moan - The Winter 2012 Box Office Results Show

     

    It's time for Jamie, Phil and special guest Shawn Robbins from BoxOffice.com to do battle once more as they see how well they did in predicting the US box office grosses for the movies of Winter 2012.

    It's not about whether Phil won, it's about whether he got any right.

    The second, and far more important, question is how did you at home do?  We'll be picking a 'web winner' for the closest prediction from those who contributed their own last October.

    And if you want to skip ahead to a specific film (probably cause you thought you won that one), here are the cliff notes:

    4:55 mins - Wreck It Ralph
    12:10 mins - Flight
    18:20 mins - Skyfall
    27:30 mins - Lincoln
    32 mins - The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II
    39:30 mins - Rise Of The Guardians
    45:40 mins - Life Of Pi
    49:30 mins - Red Dawn
    51:35 mins - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
    65:35 mins - Monsters Inc. 3D
    70:40 mins - Zero Dark Thirty
    76:10 mins - Jack Reacher
    82:10 mins - This Is 40
    88 mins - Django Unchained
    96:25 mins - Les Miserables

    Movie Moan - Well It's About Time

    Took you long enough Disney.

    Assembled this week to discuss with Phil and Jamie the news we've all been waiting to pounce on and criticize are Gabe Toro, film critic for The Playlist & Jump Cut Junkies, the man of tomorrow Justin Korthof, the man who has to make a point before Jamie interrupts, Randall Maynard, and the one and only Mr Robert Meyer Burnett.  Movie Moan Friends - GO FOR IT!

    5:50 mins - Is Abrams the right choice?  Did he bother to let Paramount know he was doing it? Can a great movie bring burned out adults back into Star Wars?  What about that release date?  And can Randall get an opportunity to speak?

    45:20 mins - Since Justin is here, we have time to dredge up some 'Justice League' news now that the roster of Super Friends hitting the big screen has been announced.  So, one more time, is a team movie before solo ones the right way to go?

    62:10 mins - Phil has time to mention the epic battle that will be next week's show and the Superman Lives documentary that needs your dollars right here.

    Movie Moan - Streets Of Rant

    This week's show has to go down on record as the most long winded we've ever done and there have been some doozies.  But this week has seen both the end of UK high street DVD stores for good and confirmation that nobody, not even Criterion, gives a shit about decent supplemental features anymore. 

    Let the diatribe begin (accompanied by the soothing sounds of the score to 'Heaven's Gate'):

    4:25 mins - Capt. Ed Hocken explains why you will never get to see the newest gem out of Sundance; 'Escape From Tomorrow'.

    8:10 mins - Mr Gabe Toro, film critic for The Playlist & Jump Cut Junkies drops by to review 'The Last Stand'.  It's not as good as 'Eraser' apparently.

    16:15 mins - Gabe also blows the lid on the greatest secret Hollywood doesn't want you to know about - 'Triplets'.

    19:15 mins - And Gabe rounds off his trilogy of awesome with his thoughts on 'Broken City', a film he would walk ten blocks to see (but no more than that).

    27:40 mins - Jamie, Phil and Hocken all finally sit down to try and watch the Criterion release of 'Heaven's Gate' with varying degrees of success.

    72:35 mins - With the seeming demise of HMV and Blockbuster in the UK, Phil asks why older people like his mother should be forced to adapt to an online only business model of renting films.
