Episode 40: HASHTAG Y

I forget where the name of this episode came from, we were pretty tired when we recorded. Join us as we review two horror films. First up the latest from indie horror darlings Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett, You’re Next. Then we discuss the latest from Rob Zombie, The Lords of Salem. One of them was my favorite horror movie I’ve seen in a while! Which one?  Listen and see!

Episode 40: Paint The White House Black

Yes folks, we tried to review three movies this week. Though, to be fair Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down are so similar they might as well be the same movie. Rounding out our trifecta is  G.I. Joe Retaliation, which, believe it or not, we spend a lot of time discussing. Three loud action flicks? Leave your brain at the door this week kids!

And lest you think the title of this episode was inspired by Lil Wayne…

Episode 39: Bedtime Stories

In this episode of Quid Pod Quo, we look at two (relatively) modern spins on fairy tales: Ever After, a retelling of Cinderella; and Ridley Scott’s original fable, Legend.

Also, during our “Once & Future Queue” we mention “You Are Not Alone” published by Grayhaven Comics; an anti-bullying comic book anthology that Justine contributed a story to. Please pick up a copy for yourself and for anyone you know who may be a victim of violence, homophobia, racism, etc and spread the word that they are not alone! You can purchase the comic here.

P.S. During part of our review of Ever After our steam radiator decides to grace the podcast with its presence. Apologies for the high pitched whistling.

Episode 38: A Bit O’ The Old Ultraviolence

Quid Pod Quo goes all-out this week reviewing two incredibly violent flicks. The 1987 sci-fi classic, Robocop and the cartoony, over-the-top gun fest from 20 years later, Shoot ‘Em Up. Both are Jared’s picks, so take a listen to see if Justine could stomach either movie!

***BONUS CLIP***

As Jared mentioned on this episode, Robocop director Paul Verhoeven has mentioned in an interview the  connection between Robocop & Jesus. Check it out below!

Episode 34: Clap, Clap; Snikt, Snikt!

Hey folks, before we dive into our next episode which promises to be incredibly depressing (Atonement and Requiem for a Dream aren’t exactly feel good crowd pleasers) we decided to review two movies currently in theaters: The Conjuring and The Wolverine! Please be warned though, as with all episodes of Quid Pod Quo, we will discuss these movies in-depth and you can (and should) expect spoilers for both of these movies (as well as a very small one for Hard Candy). Otherwise, enjoy our review and Justine’s strange preoccupation with dismembering Wolverine and how he heals.

Also, check out Jared’s deeper dive into The Wolverine in his written review!
