GG Goes To The Movies: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

GG Goes To The Movies: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

August 19, 2019

We teased toward the end of our previous "Goes To The Movies" episode that we would be covering Tarantino's 9th film "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood". And we have delivered!

Since the film has been out for several weeks now, the majority of what can be said about it has probably already been said. However, we did our best to come up with some relatively unique talking points, criticisms, etc.

The main takeaway here is that we both really enjoyed this movie, and we hope you do to. If you haven't seen it yet, and have any interest in seeing it, here are a few disclaimers: 1) The episode is SPOILER HEAVY, so please proceed with caution; 2) If you enjoyed Tarantino's earlier works such as Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction, you will for sure get a kick out of OUATIH.

Please let us know what you think of the podcast by leaving us a rating a review, wherever you listen to your podcasts. It helps us out tremendously when our listeners leave us reviews, because apps like Apple & Google Podcasts will place us higher in their algorithm, making it easier for new listeners to find us!

The main Geek Garage show will DEFINITELY be back this week. I know that I've said this before, and do I apologize, but I promise it's for real this time!

GG Goes To The Movies: Midsommar & The Art of Self-Defense

GG Goes To The Movies: Midsommar & The Art of Self-Defense

August 15, 2019

Aaaaand we're back! Thank you so much to all of you amazing, loyal listeners for hanging on with us during our temporary hiatus. Words simply cannot express how grateful we are for your continued support, especially through trying times!

For our first episode back (and very first episode recorded in the new studio!), Ted and I discuss two summer films that we really enjoyed.

Midsommar, the sophomore effort by Ari Aster (Hereditary, 2018), is a psychotropic-induced fever dream (or nightmare) that explores unconventional ways of making audiences extremely uncomfortable. Ted and I discuss just that, along with some of the cinematography choices, the actors' performances, and how we're both officially scared shitless of traveling to Sweden. If you were a fan of Hereditary, you will most likely enjoy Aster's follow-up film!

The Art of Self-Defense, directed by Riley Stearns, brings new meaning to the Dark/Black Comedy genre. We talked about how Jesse Eisenberg was born to play this role, of a socially awkward geek-type who learns to stick up for himself, by enrolling in Karate lessons. There wasn't much that we didn't like/love about this film. It came out of nowhere, and totally blew us away. If you are a fan of dark comedies (such as Death to Smoochy, Seven Psychopaths, and Burn After Reading), then you will most likely get a kick out of this film.

We will be back VERY soon with our next episode of "Goes To The Movies", where we talk about Tarantino's 9th film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood! Additionally, the Geek Garage main show will also be back soon, with our brand-new segment titled "Geek For Your Week", so stay tuned!

RAWR! For our third episode of "Goes To The Movies", Ted and I chat about the latest film in the ever-expanding "Monster" universe with Godzilla: King of The Monsters. This film is definitely not without its faults, which we definitely discuss to an extent. However, this movie is overall a LOT of fun, and would definitely recommend, especially if you're a long-time Godzilla fan!

May 26, 2019

On the latest episode of Geek Garage Goes To The Movies, Ted and David dive into the latest in the John Wick franchise, Parabellum. There is hardly anything negative we have to say about this movie, because it's absolutely incredible. The first 5-10 minutes are spoiler-free, but once we get through our initial thoughts on the movie, there are definitely some spoilers, so listeners beware!

P.S. David apologizes for the audio quality in advance. He was an idiot and forgot to plug the audio controller USB cord into the computer. Oops.

In case you missed it, we're starting a new "chapter" of the podcast called "Geek Garage Goes To The Movies", where my new cohost, Ted White, and I will be chatting about all kinds of movies (not just the "geeky" ones!). 

For our first episode, we discussed John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2, in preparation for John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (damn, that's a lot of John Wicks).

Lastly, we'd like to give a few shout-outs. Go check out The Freakin' Geekin' Podcast @TheFreakinCast. They're a new podcast on the scene, with a very similar topic-base as the Geek Garage.
