In this edition of the Geekstrum podcast, we welcome Scott into the strummers fold and also find a way to somehow only talk about a new Star Wars movie for two hours… for the second consecutive pod. Shocking no one at all, Geekstrum is back from a totally planned “hiatus” to bombard you with nonstop rambling about everything from poorly defining pansexual to shinning a light on the upcoming Detective Pikachu film.
In what looks like our final pair of shorts for the foreseeable future, the Asterixar Bunch goes out with a bang. We break down 2017’s Oscar nominated Lou and the various toys we got from our dentists growing up. After that we get into the new attractions opening this summer at Disneyland for Pixar Pier along with some additions we’d like to see. The shorts may be over but our love for them will never die!
This time we’re scrapping the bottom of the barrel to bring you another pair of feature related shorts! We have Mater and the Ghostlight (2006) and Your Friend the Rat (2007). One is absolutely awful and the other is about rats so we’ll let you figure it out. Come help the Asterixar boys get through this because we can see the (ghost)light at the end of the tunnel!
Come warm your cockles with a new pair of shorts! This time we’re chatting about Mike’s New Car (2002) and Jack-Jack Attack (2005). We’ll get into car talk, baby talk, and an impromptu Ratzenberger Report! Plus at the end there’s a tease of something special in the works. Come on down to Asterixar town!
In 2016 when Chadwick Boseman showed up as T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War, as suave as humanly possible and with an undeniable presence for a character in an introductory/cameo role, he turned in the type of performance that begged for a deeper dive. And when he was so gracious to put on a Vibranium (we’ll get there) panther suit and start flipping around, kicking ass, I wondered how it took so long to bring the Black Panther to the movie screen. It was the perfect amount of screen time, creating as much wonder as hype for a new character, something Marvel has nearly perfected inside its all encompassing Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Fast forward to 2018, where we’re all in a post Wakanda world, gifted with one of the best Marvel films to date.
Straight from the headquarters, the Asterixar boys are broadcasting a brand new pod for 2015’s Inside Out! There’ll be talk of how to properly deal with your emotions, embarrassing childhood experiences, and whether or not random boners is still a thing. All that good plus an extra long Ratzenberger report on this banger of an episode!
Hey nerds, it’s your favorite time of year again! We’re in the midst of listicle season but where most of you are looking back upon the year that was in “cinema” I endeavor on, hoping to pop a few future gems your way among an overall list that will most assuredly feature at least three movies from Disney. Are you intrigued? Have you already gone back and looked at last year’s list to see how totally right I was about everything? What, you didn’t like The Dark Tower?
