Podcast 30: Have It Your Way J.J.!

Hey, here's our big podcast about the freaking movie! It's a bit rough since we didn't edit it and we're without our usual theme music, but you've held through worse. At the beginning we have us in the theater chatting some people up before the show. At the end of the podcast we have another small recording talking to Jimmy, who we met while sitting next to us.

The Onion Confirms My Fears

Watch this (the embed isn't sizing correctly):

Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film as 'Fun, Watchable'

Thanks to good 'ol Wil Wheaton for sending it our way. Yes, THAT Wil Wheaton

Hopefully it's not that "good."

On the plus side, it's good to see that The Onion has a pretty good Hot Chick Budget. Bree Lindsay! Yowza!

Podcast 29: "He's Scaling His Own Ego"

Yes! We go back to the original cast! No! The movie was horrible! Well, there's good and bad in everything. One day your life has no meaning -- the next day you find God -- then the next day you discover that it's not God, but actually some weird alien creature who wants to hitch a ride with you -- then the next day you cop out the whole existence of God with some crap about the human heart or whatever. In this conversation we'll not only be referencing the movie itself, but also the Rifftrax commentary. Also we may mention just a little tiny bit about the commentary of Lord Shatner himself.

0:00 -- Opening talk about Star Trek V
6:11 -- Huge distracting conversation about other stuff
13:45 -- Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
55:00 -- Awards
1.04:45 -- Goodbyes and outtakes

Next time you hear from us will be about the new movie, so now's your chance to get in a word edgewise.

This podcast is dedicated in loving memory to Bill Quinn (1912-1994).

Next Recording Next Week

Unfortunately, because of the limited abilities of the USPS and UPS and the fact that J.R.'s on vacation from his vacation, we won't be recording today.

HOWEVER... that means that our next recording will be directly discussing THE NEW STAR TREK MOVIE. Check out the countdown on the right side of this page. Less than 6 days!

We'll be recording our discussion immediately following our viewing, so you won't be able to provide your own feedback for the movie itself (unless you saw some kind of advance screening). You are encouraged instead to send in what your pre-impressions are. What are your fears? What are your encouragements? What do you think of J.J. Abrams? What about the trailers? Does it seem like it will be too "summer movie" and not cerebral enough? Do you think a new franchise is cooking? According to Scott Mantz of Access Hollywood, this is "The first 'Star Trek' for everyone." Does that statement frighten you?
