Hollywood, We Have a Problem with Movie Franchises

Remakes and Franchises make movie watching boring these days. Same ol’ this and with a sprinkle of that thing already imagined. Jurassic World and Ocean’s 8 are two examples of films —this summer— whose failure to deviate from the plot and character development of it’s precursors to produced a final product that hit all the marks of fanfare but lacked originality. What's In This Episode We’re always open for suggestions and/or a favorable comment But Machete don’t tweet. Okay, well...

We're always open for suggestions and/or a favorable comment. But Machete don't tweet. Okay, well leave us a voicemail or email: Phone 520-775-1690 Email In This Episode... The movie theatre is a venue; a luxury, to which only some of us can afford to indulge regularly. Subscription services, like, Movies Pass, Stubs, and Cinemark’s Movie Club make that indulgence a more considerable option than waiting for movies to premiere on Netflix. No...


Black Panther is The Only Black James Bond We Need - TWB82

Black Panther is the only black James Bond we need. He has the tech, a suave demeanor, and the well intent to undermine criminal minds who threaten his nations. It would be great to have a black James Bond character on the big screen but as long as he or she is not James Bond and more Bond-like. I’m bored of remakes and studio attempts to reinsert old titles into the modern day film industry by way of cultural appropriation: Female Ghostbusters, a black James Bond. Good ideas. Lazy...


Solo is The Ultimate George Lucas Clapback - TWB81

Solo is an entertaining movie and could possibly be more to audiences if we could accept him --the individual, Solo-- as the main character rather than a sidekick who just so happens to be the baby daddy to certain Skywalker progeny. This movie isn't necessary to the canon, however, has the potential to payout and entertaining storyline if we care to wait for forthcoming sequels. People “riding’ Solo for the all wrong reasons. Solo is not a bad film, only unnecessary to the storyline we...


Thanos featuring The Avengers - TWB80

In two movies, Disney and Marvel, (kinda) redefined or rather reintroduced the sympathetic villain into the mainstream zeitgeist: Kilmonger and Thanos. We may not like the pain Thanos inflicts on Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers Infinity War but you gotta like the guy; he has conviction and purpose. Sure he's crazier than a raccoon climbing a skyscraper, vicious, and a bit of a psychopath. However, he's also compassionate and empathetic. Violence is just the result of the many...


Blade Runner and The Search For Existential Life

Blade Runner continues the conversation it began thirty-five years ago with an even deeper questioning of the morality to creating life and when life finds a way. Since Jeff Goldblum stuttered those words in the first Jurassic Park, the question of life coming into being outside the control of its creator is not just a popular quote but a think well consideration. If we[humans] are to be the next creators of life then we must take the responsibility of allowing life to live, breath, and...


Alien Free Fire in The Phoenix Sky

Previously on the Poduritto: the makings of the creature feature. That two hours in the afternoon or late evenings during the eighties when networks broadcasted films spanning from the 1930's to the 1960's. Monsters, aliens, and larger than life creatures fed our imaginations fear and excitement for the unknown. Episode 76 focused on Kong: Skull Island movie and taking the human element out of the creature feature in an effort to learn more about the creature and it's existence. Ever...


Mummy Curses The Dark Universe - TWB77

Let's stir up some ancient Egyptian dust with The Mummy circa 2017 starring Tom “The Maverick” Cruise aka the last of the action hero and answer the question this failure should not be the end all for Universal Dark Universe. FOR STARTERS What The Mummy does for Dark Universal is make it harder for the studio to establish some credibility with audiences. And as inconceivable as it may sound, this may not be at the end all stake in the heart for this franchise. There is hope and it has...


Colossal Kong and The Creature Feature - TWB76

The 80’s welcomed in a different type of horror movie which steered away from the fear of the atomic 50’s and the boujee-ness of the 1960’s Euporean bloodsuckers. Horror did not necessarily include monsters but monstrous figures committing monstrous acts. In the late 70’s and 80’s, the movie monster replaced cheesy storylines with utter suspense and terror, like, Jaws (1975) and Alien (1979). Long were the days of monsters coming from afar outer space to terrorize earth, no, the monsters...


Wunza Movie, Wunza Singer - TWB75

Takeout episodes Wunza a movie and wunza a podcast about wunza movies, James Cameron, and Taylor Swift. What happens when your favorite show ends or gets canceled? Your automatic response is to price the cost of tickets to Hollywood so that you can burn the entire city to the ground… Vesuvius style. I’m talking to you Netflix; it wasn’t that you canceled Sense 8, it was that you were so smug afterward that people had no other choice but to berate your customer service reps with annoying...


State of Fear- 2017 Horror Movie Edition

Horror movies of 2017 with This, That, and Other News.


Freddy Krueger Got Fingered on Elm Street -TWB73

Surviving in Freddy Krueger's dreamworld is almost impossible, but what if you had a choice and one of them involves not getting into the lion's den with the four-fingered crispy nightmare man of dreams gone bad? The other option is easier, less painful, but involves Tom Green. A


IT Rhymes With Coulrophobia

What is it about fear that intrigues us? Is it the mystery of the unknown or the thrill of the experience that we find so alluring? Some people are born fearful while in others fear comes with living our everyday lives and encountering things that make us feel uneasy or apprehensive. Either manifested from our now psychosis or an event, fear is natural and actually healthy. But how we deal with fear is what defines how we as individuals bloom from its seed.

Dolls Make Awful Roommates - TWB71

Dolls make bad roommates, however, if you really feel the need to own such an empty vessel with no personality and frightful glaze, then get a cat. No, not a cat instead of the doll. Buy a cat once you purchase doll and protect the only real investment you can claim as an asset: your soul.

Baby Ducks In The FP - TWB70

Download and Take This Episode To-Go The FP is like Breaking: Electric Boogaloo set in a dystopian society of young twenty somethings who don’t know any better about the real world. Frazier Park and the 248 Frazier Park, a subdivision somewhere in the greater state of California where wars aren’t fought over color or race but by county lines and dance. Not the Samba, not ballet, no crunk, but video game dance battles. Beat Beat Revolution, similar but exactly equal to the popular...


Purge Fiction and A Story Called BirdSong - TWB69

I wrote a story called King Up High about a man who must make it from opposite ends of the city to a high-rise building during the most dangerous day of the year: Purge Night. This short story became an audio drama that is now a podcast episode, Birdsong. I hope you enjoy this special presentation and don't be shy to tell me what you think. Special thanks goes out to Alysa, Mikey, and Chris "The Rupel" for helping voice characters in this story. Birdsong is long overdue but worth the...


Wonder Woman: Don't Put Swords Down Dresses - TWB68

Save Your Data Is Wonder Woman as much a triumph for women within the Hollywood industry is it just a much-needed victory for Warner Bros. and the DCEU universe? Unlike the movies from its cinematic predecessors, Wonder Woman opened the weekend to prescreening praise and that highly sought after Rotten Tomatoes score. With so much animosity over the validity of critics these days and the effect they have on a film's opening success at the box office, one can indeed argue that good word of...


How Space Was Won - TWB67

Now Playing: Guardians of the galaxy is a celestial space painting that maintains the fun of the comic book genre with bright lights, witty banter, and a great soundtrack to overlay what is another great achievement for every VFX artist, writer, and cinematographer who worked to make this film an enjoyable and successful sequel. If you strip away the cosmic space battles, celestial beings, and a talking trash monkey, you have a western and the Guardians of the Galaxy are just cowboys....



White washing aside let's talk about how the live action Ghost In the Shell rinsed a completely good storyline down the drain for the appeal to whom: Everyone who did not read the manga, watch the 1995 anime, or the Standalone Complex series (and likely never will). In other words, the mass audience of movie goers who could care less about a cyborg who feels. I know, lets cast Scarlett Johansson! That'll bring butts to the theater seats. Also, a man marries a robot and how that might be a...


Old Man Logan - TWB65

Logan isn't a statement to harold Rated-R comic book movies; it's not a good adaptation of the comic book series,; it's not the best superhero themed movie. What Logan is, is a good movie about the fate of a man whose life was no longer worth fighting to defend.
