Twin Peaks season 3 final thoughts

9/12/2017
More
Twin Peaks season 3 has finished and as we expect from Mr Lynch, everything ended pretty much as we expected and all the loose ends were neatly tied up. Yes, I’m sure that’s what happened… If you’d like to contact us with any feedback or whatever, please find us at http://theweirdsphere.podbean.com/p/contact-details/

The worst robots ever

8/30/2017
More
Everyone loves a good robot right? Some of the highlights of science fiction have come from our electronic buddies, like that time R2D2 urinated oil everywhere in the prequels… err… ok, bad example. Anyhoo, who cares about the good robots. Let’s talk about the really crap ones!

Film review: War for the Planet of the Apes

8/22/2017

The new Planet of the Apes films have surprised a lot of people by being really good. But now we come to the dreaded third entry! Does the quality hold up? Are the apes still damned and dirty?

8/20/2017
More
The culmination of Marvel’s four Netflix series has finally arrived! Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all come together in this 8 episode series.

Film review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Finally another Spider-Man film! After the dizzying heights of the Andrew Garfield movies, can added Marvel make Spidey watchable again? His Civil War cameo suggests yes.

Board game review: Star Wars: Rebellion

7/18/2017
More
Ever watch the original Star Wars trilogy and think “You rebel scum have no idea what you’re doing! I could do so much better”. Or perhaps you’re shouting at the Emperor to shut up and stop goading Luke as you know that’s not going to work. Well, in the board game Star Wars: Rebellion you are in control instead of these idiots so maybe you can do a better job!

Board game review: Raptor

7/4/2017
More
Jurassic Park really did a disservice to velociraptors. They’re not nasty or evil, they’re just like any of us. Tell me, if a bunch of scientists turned up and tried to steal your kids for “research” you’d tear them into small chunks of bloody meat wouldn’t you? This is where the board game Raptor comes in. It’s a 2 player assymetrical game of scientists versus raptors. Do you like stealing children or mutilating uppity nerds? Choose your side! If you’d like to contact us with any...

Film review: Wonder Woman

The next superhero movie, Wonder Woman has arrived and it’s getting a lot of attention. Finally a DC movie has been released that is getting praise from both the fans and critics alike! Surely the Weirdsphere will be united in their enjoyment of it too?

Board game review: Project: ELITE

6/13/2017

Aliens. ALIENS. So many bloody aliens and so little time! Project: ELITE is a cooperative board game all about killing lots of aliens in a mad real time dice rolling frenzy. Is it stressful or fun? Or both? Enter the Weirdsphere with us and find out! If you’d like to contact us with any feedback or whatever, please find us at http://theweirdsphere.podbean.com/p/contact-details/

Twin Peaks : The Return episodes 1 - 4

6/6/2017
More
See you in 25 years… And 25 years later (ok maybe it’s 26) Twin Peaks has returned! We’ve done the epic rewatch of the original series and film to prepare and have now seen the first 4 pure Lynch directed episodes. Is it possible for the series to come back weirder than ever? Why yes. Yes it is! Can we make sense of it? Of course!!! Well… maybe parts of it. Join us as we stumble our way through the Black Lodge.

Comics discussion: Heroes versus heroes

5/10/2017
More
In the world of the big 2 comics publishers villains have become quite passé. Why bother with a bad guy when you can just have your heroes beat each other senseless. It’s long been a tradition for our caped wonders to have their little tiffs but has it gone too far in recent times? Let’s discuss.

Ancient film reviews: Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

4/18/2017
More
Superman. The original superhero. The sun powered savior with a smile. Batman. The cranky rich guy who puts on a leather pervert suit and beats up the poor and mentally ill. Surely a film about these two meeting and comparing crime fighting strategies can’t go wrong right? RIGHT? Zack Snyder’s Batman vs Superman: Yawn of Justice may have other ideas.

Favourite fictional settings

Reality is highly overrated. With science fiction and fantasy comes great escapism, so in today’s episode we discuss fictional worlds and settings that we love. If you’d like to contact us with any feedback or whatever, please find us at http://theweirdsphere.podbean.com/p/contact-details/

Film review: The Great Wall

3/7/2017
More
Like all sensible people, we can’t get enough Matt Damon in our movies. Today’s podcast looks at the recent Chinese film, The Great Wall, where Matt Damon helps China keep some nasty monsters out of their damn yard and behind that Great Wall. Does Matt Damon need rescuing? Oh he better. If you’d like to contact us with any feedback or whatever, please find us at http://theweirdsphere.podbean.com/p/contact-details/

Film review: The Lobster

2/28/2017
More
One of the odder films of recent times, Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster is dystopian and slightly surreal story of a society where single people have a limited time to find a partner or be transformed into an animal of their choice. It received an Academy Award nomination for best original screenplay and won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. Was it too weird for the Weirdsphere? There’s just no way of knowing… If you’d like to contact us with any feedback or whatever,...

Comic review: The Vision

2/21/2017
More
This week we turn our attentions to a comic series released by Marvel about one of our least favourite characters, the Vision. A 12 issue limited series by writer Tom King and artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta, one of our podcasters drew a comparison between it and the Watchmen. Whaaaat? Is that justified? Did the rest of these clowns like it that much too? If you’d like to contact us with any feedback or whatever, please find us at http://theweirdsphere.podbean.com/p/contact-details/

One of our crew likes spaceships. A lot. To pacify her, we have spent this entire episode discussing our favourite spaceships from fiction, and perhaps one or two from reality. Reality? What’s that?
