Episode #132: Michael Cera

It’s our belief that it should be a rare thing to remake a movie.  However, if a movie is going to be remade Michael Cera should be a part of that remake.  At least, that’s our contention and discussion for this week’s episode of the Brick Room.  We recorded this awhile ago, so apologies if some stuff is out of date, but Michael Cera always holds up.

Episode #130: Star Wars vs Harry Potter

Which universe is cooler?  Star Wars or Harry Potter?  Is a Jedi more powerful than a wizard?

More than anything else, these are the questions on everyone’s mind right now in this country and The Brick Room is here to help you learn the answers.

Disclaimer, this podcast was recorded a few weeks ago so some comments may be out of date, but Star Wars and Harry Potter are timeless.  Grab a glass of blue milk or butterbeer (whichever you prefer) and listen in as we solve the world’s problems.

Episode #129: More Sports!

It’s that time again, everyone! That’s right, a new Brick Room! We are par for the course this week where we talk about the similarities between Football and Sex in the City (yeah, I know!)

We get into sports again and explore how they would be played in different weather conditions and which conditions would be the best!

We get talking about Canadians and their Capt. America parallel as well…

Let us know what you think and share with your friends!

 

Episode #124: Lethal Weapon

Did you know the movie Lethal Weapon has been turned into a TV show that is broadcasting now?  Chris didn’t realize that but Marc did, and he’s even seen a few of the episodes.  In this week’s episode of the Brick Room we talk about the Lethal Weapon movies and the TV show.  We talk about the special relationship between Riggs and Murtaugh, as well as some ways that criminals can make a lot of money.

We also discuss movie deaths.  What happens if your character gets shot in a  movie?  Does it make a difference if you are shot with a bullet vs an arrow?  As it turns out, it does.  If you could choose between being shot with a bullet or an arrow in a movie universe which one would you pick?  You should choose to be shot by the bullet.  I know, it sounds like being shot by a gun would be worse than being shot by a bow and arrow but trust me, if you are a character in a movie you do not want to be shot with an arrow.  We talk all about it and explain why that is in this week’s podcast.  Grab your drink, avoid the bows and arrows, and listen in.

 

Episode #121: Relationships and Gordy

Brick Room guest Gordy is back for this episode as we mostly talk about relationships.  Marc just got married and we talk about married life, single life, and relationships in general.  We also wonder, how long is it acceptable for a couple to refer to themselves as “Newlyweds”?

Previous to all this relationship talk we open up the podcast talking about Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix.  The world of video entertainment is changing all the time and we discuss the interesting content these services are bringing to the table and how they are affecting the TV business.  We also discuss commercials and what happens to actors that hit it big as a commercial spokesman.

Finally, we finish up the podcast with a round of “What if?”, which is probably Gordy’s favorite game.

Grab your beer, listen in, and play a little What if? with us.

Episode #120: Doctors

In today’s episode we talk about doctors and dentists and they way they talk.  They all seem to have a similar pattern to their speech and they use words and phrases that many other people, even professional people, do not use.  We’re not talking here about medical terminology, although they love to throw those weighty multisyllabic technical terms around too.  No, we’re talking about phrases designed to either set you at ease or to demonstrate their expertise.

We also talk about arts and crafts and the Latin language.  Thanks for listening, here’s this week’s episode:

Episode 119 – Lando’s Cape

Who’s the smoothest in the Galaxy? Lando. Obviously.

We talk Star Wars again in this podcast, starting with Marc’s cosplay plans to how much we just want to follow Lando around.

Also, I guess we’re #DonaldForLando now…

We also discuss the trend of remaking/rebooting movies including Ben Hur, a movie that has been remade into oblivion…

We also cover the all important question as to ‘Why?’… Why all of the remakes and what should never be remade (Star Wars) and what should be remade. We go over a few movies that could another pass over and be remade…

Also, disaster movies are almost immune to remakes…unless you’re Backdraft…

Did we miss anything? Let us know what you think! If you don’t think Donald Glover would make a good young Lando, let us know how it feels to be wrong about everything in your life…

Thanks for listening!
