Episode 7 - 21 - 14

Ahead of us looms dark horizons: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel's return to the illustrious xXx franchise, and the internet getting its collective nutt over some of a new X-Wing and Ultron in upcoming sequel resplendence. The geeks have taken over! Well, they took over a decade ago, at least, but it's still worth opining a bit.

We got into an interesting discussion about the new craze with kitschy "bad art" ala Birdemic and The Room and whether or not our collective obsession with it detracts from good art. The answer is: yaidunno.

Then followed talk of Hercules, past and present. So many Hercules. Why did he get the lion's (yuk yuk) share of Greek Myth popularity, when my boy Theseus was just as cool? They never do Greek Myth right - except Lars Von Trier! Alas.

The Boom Operator reviewed The new Apes movie and enjoyed it, perhaps more than the original.

We heard music from the following:

The Avengers, 2012 - Alan Silvestri
Hercules, 1983 - Pino Donaggio
TMNT movies - Various
