Geek Nerdery Podcast: Avengers Infinity War

I’m joined by my cohosts from The Midnight Drive-In Doug and Noah to break down the culmination of 10 years of work from Marvel Studios Avengers Infinity War!  Did it live up to the hype?  Find out.  Also this review is very spoilery so we advise not listening without seeing the movie first.

The Midnight Drive-In: Death Race 2000 & Rollerball

It’s that season.  It’s time for some Dystopian Sports!  We’ll b talking about two movies from 1975 that feature what could be televised sports in the future.  First up is James Caan in Rollerball.  Then after that it’s time to rev your engines for the Corman classic Death Race 2000!  We also talk about Jason X, Spider-Man, Leatherface, King of Kong, the new Netflix series Lost in Space, and Sorcerer.

The Midnight Drive-In: Commando & Cobra

We are looking at the two kings of 80’s action with Commando starring Schwarzenegger and then Cobra starring Stallone.  Which one has held up the best?  After that we talk about what else we’ve seen and end up talking some wrestling and specifically talking about attending wrestling shows back in the day.

The Midnight Drive-In: Frogs & Slugs

After a month of Critters and Leprechaun movies we decided maybe it was time for some nature fights back films.  First up is Sam Elliott as a photographer/nature specialist fighting mind controlling Frogs!  Then make sure you check your salad as we’ll be talking some mutant radioactive Slugs!  Also Bryan tells you about a tattoo dream he had that now has to become a reality, some films discussed are Ready Player One, The Night Visitor, and Game Over Man!

The Midnight Drive-In: Easter Show!!!

Hope the Easter Bunny brought you lots of candy.  While you’re out searching for Easter Eggs enjoy our Easter Show!!!!  We also chat about Phantasm Ravager, Chopping Mall, Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowlarama, Parents, Bone Tomahawk, and Good Time.  Plus your feedback!  Happy Easter Everyone!

The Midnight Drive-In: Critters 4 & Leprechaun 4

We decided to do something a little different this week and we went with some sci-fi films set IN SPAAAAAAACE!  We’ll be talking Critters 4 and Leprechaun 4.  On top of that we chat about Jessica Jones, The Gate, Brawl In Cell Block 99 (yes again), Psycho, and Blood Feast.

The Midnight Drive-In: Critters 3 & Leprechaun 3

To celebrate the work of Christina Criswell we decided to check out the movies Critters 3 and Leprechaun 3.  That make up . . .  We end up enjoying one of the movies immensely and the other just so/so.  After that we chat about Fargo, The Poughkipsee Tapes, Veronica, and The Strangers: Prey At Night.  Enjoy!

The Midnight Drive-In: Critters 2 & Leprechaun 2

Who loves props?  We do.  That’s why this episode we’re celebrating prop maker Michael W. Moore.  We’ll be talking about 2 of our favorite films of his Critters 2 and Leprechaun 2.  So sit back and let’s talk some wrought iron, critterballs, and motorboating a lawnmower.  Also we come with our own sequel to the Leprechaun franchise called Leprechauns.  It’s pretty great.  Also we chat some Brawl In Cell Block 99, Slasher, and Fargo.

The Midnight Drive-In: Critters & Leprechaun

For some reason it was decided we should watch Critters and Leprechaun for this week’s show.  The only reason Doug gave was “Little things eating people.” Seemed like a good enough excuse to me.  Other things we talked about were Mom & Dad, Slasher, and Coffy.  We also ramble a lot in this episode.  Enjoy.

The Midnight Drive-In: Bloodsport & Lionheart

This week we’re discussing two Van Damme classics with Boodsport and Lionheart.  So get ready to do some splits and punch someone in the nuts!  After that we discuss Black Panther, I, Tonya, and some schlocky films starring Traci Lords and Linnea Quigley.  Please be advised we do talk spoilers for Black Panther so from 1:13:00 – 1:42:00 there could be spoilers a plenty.

The Midnight Drive-In: Class Of 1984 & Class Of 1999

The Midnight Drive-In is going back to school!  In what turned to be a weird coincidence we teamed up Class Of 1984 and Class If 1999 just because they had a similar title.  Little did we know that they were directed by the same guy!  Also we chat about such films as Robocop, The Ritual, and Doug gets excited about the new Karate Kid series on YouTube Red!

TLH Classic: Frozen and We Are Still Here

Work commitments kept us from recording a new Midnight Drive-In this week so we decided to dust off a classic episode of The Last Horrorcast and drop it in for a nostalgic look back before Bryan and Noah were on the show.  Enjoy.

Grab a blanket and some hot chocolate. This week we are discussing a couple winter horror films. Despite some major technical issues during recording, we managed to actually record few thoughts on Frozen (2010) and We Are Still Here (2015).

We had a lot of fan mail this week, as well as some updates on our ongoing contest. Be sure to listen for the update.

New Cinematic Trends – Ignoring Continuity

We’ve been hearing about it for years.  They’re making a sequel but ignoring the X number of films between this one and the first one.  Lately it seems like it’s more and more a standard.

Everyone who knows me know I’m a continuity snob.  I prefer it when continuity makes sense and flows perfectly.  I can forgive a misstep here and there but overall I like it when you can watch an entire series and see how it all fits together without any glaring issues.

The Midnight Drive-In: Deathstalker & Yor Hunter From The Future

We’re taking you back to a time of swords, wizards, and apparently a lot of rape.  It’s Deathstalker and Yor The Hunter From The Future!  Then we also chat about conventions, Bryan’s beef with Marc Singer, The Last Man On Earth, Harry Brown, Blue Ruin, I, Tonya, and The Midnight Man.

The Midnight Drive-In: Eaten Alive & Motel Hell

Welcome to a long episode.  Why?  Well we start off the show with Noah asking who is the best Muppet and devolve into the politics of gay unions on Sesame Street.  We finally do talk about some Motel Horror with Eaten Alive and Motel Hell.  After that we chat about A Nightmare On Elm Street, Return Of The Living Dead, and some SNL with I Am Chris Farley.  Also a listener email brings a secret about the show to the foreground that not everyone may know.

The Midnight Drive-In: My Mom Is A Werewolf & My Best Friend Is A Vampire

We decide to take a look into what happens when those closest to us turn into monsters.  We check out My Mom Is A Werewolf and My Best Friend Is A Vampire.  Also we talk about completely selling out to the podcast gods, Insidious 4, and Doug talks some Hammer Horror.

Deadpool 2 Gets A New Release Date

It looks like Marvel’s Merc With A Mouth will be breaking the fourth wall a bit sooner than originally planned. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news Thursday of a not insignificant shake up for Fox’s summer lineup of Marvel properties.

First up is The Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool, announcing that it will be moving UP its release date by two weeks, from June 1st back to May 18th. The new release date will set Deadpool 2 squarely in the middle of an already crowded month of serious box office draws with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 hitting the screen on May fourth and Solo: A Star Wars Story dropping on May 25th.

In a fairly shocking bit of news, The Channing Tatum lead Gambit has been pushed back from Feb. 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019. It was announced that in the light of Director Gore Vebinski’s recent exit from the long gestating X Flick this late in pre-production has sentscrambling to find a new director, realizing they are going to need a lot more time to turn in a decent movie.

And last, but in my opinion, most upsetting, Josh Boone’s horror themed take on The New Mutant’s is being moved back a whopping 10 months from its scheduled April release. To many this looks as if there may be serious problems with the movie, however, insiders speculate it is to avoid Mutant overlap in overseas markets.

Let us know what you think of these moves in the comments below.
