ERMAHGERD!!!! NEW STAR WARS TRAILER!!! Yes, by now it’s old news, but still, it was pretty cool to see the first REAL teaser for the Force Awakens this week. But, fanboying aside, Robert and Matt are back behind the mics to bring you, our listener(s), a brand-spanking new podcast. This week has everything, from riches and The Force, to sweet, sweet cyber-macking and betrayal. It’s never tasteful, hardly factual, it’s Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point.
We all know Hollywood is pretty much out of ideas. Nowadays, it seems like 90% of the movies hitting theaters is either some sort of remake or reboot, likely of something that has already been remade a couple times before. The awesome and epic story-tellers and directors (Looking at you, Nolan and Whedon) seem to finally be getting their chance to really shine, but studios are just too afraid to take a chance on those unique indie projects waiting in the wings, so it looks like we’re stuck with the likes of Michael Bay, Joel Schumacher, and Brett Ratner. Join us this week as we discuss the movies that we actually want to see remade (because it’s going to happen eventually), but only if someone with talent can do it! Wipe your classic memories away, burn up those original scripts, and whatever you do, don’t even think of Transformers as we discuss our remake picks on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
