Pig Pile 33: Special Live Show w/ Podcast!

You guys,

Our monthly Pig Pile variety show is back tomorrow at 9:30pm at The Creek and the Cave.  We have some great standup’s and one of our favorite improv troupes performing.  This is going to be a great show right there.  It’s going to be an even better show because at the end we (Priest and the Beekeeper) are going to stick around and do Movie Movie Podcast right in front of you!

We’re going to record our cast as we usually do, and talk about The Bourne Legacy, but we are also going to get the audience involved and get your opinions about the newest Bourne film, the old Bourne films, or whatever tangents we go off on.  I think it’s going to be fun any way you slice it!  All you have to do is show up and be prepared to participate (and also see The Bourne Legacy between now and tomorrow evening)!

The Olympics are over.  Get out of your house and live your life!

Show is free, the food is awesome, and the drinks are cheap as usual.

Movie Movie Podcast LIVE: The Bourne Legacy

Hey guys, so now that the summer movie season is starting to wind down, and we’ve gotten a number of podcasts under our belt, we’ve decided that it’s time to get everyone else in on the fun.

Next thursday (Aug. 16th) after our monthly show Pig Pile (9:30pm at The Creek and the Cave) we are going to record a live podcast.  We are going to get the audience involved and get your guys’ opinions of the film we review.  With The Bourne Legacy coming out this weekend, we figure this is the biggest and best film that a lot of people are going to see, so it should work perfectly. It also might be terrible, so it’ll be fun to talk about either way.

If you want to not only come to Pig Pile and enjoy all the improv,sketch,and standup that we typically have and then stick around to podcast The Bourne Legacy with us, it will be an awesome time.  Also if you want to come and see The Bourne Legacy with the four of us at MMP, we are going to see it this Sunday morning at 10:15am at the AMC Loews 34th Street in midtown.  Tickets are only $7, so it’s even more worth it.

Come be a part of Movie Movie Podcast history!

The Bourne Legacy Trailer and the Case of the Good Sequel-Boot

I am excited for this movie.  By placing it directly within the timeline of the Jason Bourne films they aren’t absolutely shitting on our intelligence.  Jeremy Renner looks very capable to take over for Matt Damon.  Universal reallllllly needs this to do well.  Battleship tanked, and Snow White is a big gamble.

Check out the newest trailer here!

GI Joe: Retaliation and Why I’m A Fanning Tatum

So since the worst news ever dropped last week that G.I. Joe 2 was being shifted out of it’s prime summer tentpole spot of June 29th, 2012, to the murky waters of March to be retooled for 3D, the only thing I’ve been able to think was, BULLSHIT.  There was absolutely no way it was going to take 9 months to reshoot a film for 3D.  Two years ago when Clash of the Titans (garbage movie) came out, it only took them 6 weeks to convert it for 3D.  There was absolutely no way that Paramount would move a film almost a full year just to add in 3D.  Hell, if they did 8 weeks of reshoots starting last week, they would still be able to get it out this summer and capitalize on August money, which is a notoriously slower box office month.  The only competition I can even think of is The Bourne Legacy and that is an unproven sequel-boot, much like this G.I. Joe film.

Well Deadline.com pretty much broke the news today that everyone suspected.  The G.I. Joe 2 test screenings were doing well with the exception of one major issue: they KILL Duke (Channing Tatum) in the first 15 mins.  This was kind of obvious from looking at the trailers.  They spend no time whatsoever even showing Duke, and they pretty much only highlight The Rock.  I don’t have an issue with that really, but the Box Office certainly would.  Between The Vow and the hilarious 21 Jump Street, Tatum has proven he is a legitimate draw at the box office, so killing him 15 mins in, will subvert any of the good will the movie was already starting to build up.  The fact that he’s not even in the movie enough to use in the ad campaign is telling.  He wasn’t even on the most recent posters, which have pretty much every character on them. So Paramount, caved and have decided not only to convert the movie, but keep Channing Tatum’s character alive long enough so that he can establish a relationship with The Rock.  I hope this all works out cause I think they finally nailed the proper tone for one of these films and I would hate for massive reshoots to turn what looks like a fun movie into a shitburger.

We’ll have to wait and see.


p.s. I like Channing Tatum and I have no arguable reason to back up that statement other than I like Step Up, Step Up 2 The Streets, and 21 Jump Street. One of those three films is good.
