Episode 91 – Gymkata

Gymkata

What do Cold War politics, gymnastics, and karate all have in common?  Not much, to be honest, unless you slam them all together in GYMKATA!  Not only did 3/4 of us here at To-Ag Studios subject ourselves to this painful train-wreck of a movie for the listeners sake, we dragged poor fellow podcaster Andy Collier from Andy’s Movie Minute down with us!  Join us this week as we discuss failed Reagan-era defense projects and horrible martial art movie tropes sure to make your head explode!  Chalk up that pommel horse, wait your turn to attack, and trim up your mullet as you get ready for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Episode 24 – The Hunger Games

Spring is here, and what better way to start than watching teenagers savagely murder each other on national television?  Better yet, there is The Hunger Games!  If you’ve been living in a cave you might as well stay there because it’s all about Katniss, Peeta, and The Capitol’s greatest spectacle.  Join the Monkey in the Cage crew this week as they discuss their thoughts on both the book and the film while also being thankful for not starving and fighting to death.  Impress those Gamemakers, get plenty of Sponsors, and be sure to watch out for those Tracker Jackers if you plan on surviving this week’s episode on The Hunger Games.  May the odds be ever in your favor!

Monkey Advice for… Katniss

OK, not so much advice this time as gifts.  This is how I imagine we would “assist” Katniss in the arena.

Katniss & Gale Say Goodbye

Katniss played by Jennifer Lawrence and Gale played by Liam Helmsworth

Another day, another Hunger Games clip!  I have a feeling that we will be getting more of these before this Friday’s release date let’s hope we don’t see the whole movie in clips by then!  The lingering hug between Katniss and Gale reminded me of why I “chose” Gale for Katniss early in the book series.  Watch and enjoy!
