Geek Out Commentary: Flash Gordon

Flash!! Aaaaaaaah! Savior of the Universe! Kickass Queen soundtrack aside (And it does kick so much ass), this film is a cult favorite of both Chris and Jake with the former making it his choice as a brief respite between major film franchises comes to a close. See the film that inspired several recurring jokes in the Seth MacFarlane movie Ted! See [then-]future James Bond Timothy Dalton go all Rambo on the forces of Ming the Merciless! Witness what will be the closest we'll probably get to seeing a live action Hawkman on the big screen! This film is chock full of geeky goodness!

Geek Out Commentary: Iron Monkey

After spending so much time doing commentaries for Batman and various horror movies, the Geek Out gang has decided to change up things a bit and each select a one-off film that they enjoy to cleanse their cinematic palate so to speak (But don't worry, we have some major franchises to provide commentaries for as the year continues!). This week is Sam's pick and he picks one of his favorite martial arts films of all time, Iron Monkey! Sit back as Sam introduces the gang to the movie and the wider genre of martial arts films in general.

Geek Out Commentary: The Dark Knight Rises

Geek Out's 75th anniversary celebration of Batman concludes (As does the first year of commentaries) with this final appearance of Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight Rises is an interesting film that has moments that captivate the Geek Out gang and other moments that completely pull them out of the movie. Jake is delighted with Tom Hardy's performance as his favorite Batman villain, Bane, but is put off by other elements of the film (Including his apparent contempt for the Pittsburgh Steelers). None of the guys are particular fans of the way the movie starts and Sam and Chris lament the film as something that only halfway succeeds at closing out Bale's trilogy of Batman. Take a listen.
