Lego: The Movie

In this episode, the SGS team attempt to decontruct #LegoTheMovie, directed by #ChrisMiller and #PhilLord (#22JumpStreet, #CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs), starring #ChrisPratt (#GuardiansOfThe Galaxy, #JurassicWorld), #ElizabethBanks (#LoveAndMercy, #W, #30Rock), #WillFerell (#ADeadlyAbortion, #Elf, #NightAtTheRoxbury), #LiamNeeson (#Taken, #Unknown, #ATeam) and #WillArnett (#ArrestedDevelopment, #BladesOfGlory) as #Batman.

Throughout this episode, the SGS team discover the truth behind the bricks, to find out if #Lego: The Movie is a shallow advertisement, brainwashing kids into being obedient servile plebs, or if Lego really does have a heart... that loves... taking your cash.

Mike judge: Office Space/Idiocracy/Extract

In the latest episode the SGS team journey through the cult of #MikeJudge films to determine whether cvilization is moving towards an #idiocracy and if Mike Judge is creating an expanded cinematic universe where #StephenRoot is God.

The first film we discuss is #OfficeSpace, starring #RonLivingston (#Swingers, #TheCooler), #JennierAniston (#Friends, #FriendsWithMoney, #RumourHasIt), #GaryCole (#TheBradyBunchMovie, #ASimplePlan, #AmericanGothic), #StephenRoot (#Dodgeball, #FindingNemo, #Newsradio).

 

The second film is #Idiocracy, starring #LukeWilson (#MySuperExGirllfriend, #BottleRocket, #RoyalTenenbaums), #MayaRudolph (#Bridesmaids, #TheWayWayBack), #TerryCrews (#Expendables, #Friday, #EverybodyHatesChris) and #DaxShepard (#Zathura, #TheJudge, #CHiPs).

 

The third film was #Extract, starring #JasonBateman (#BadWords, #HorribleBosses, #TeenWolfToo), #BenAffleck (#BatmanvSuperman #Dawnofjustice, #Armageddon, #Dogma), #KristenWiig (#Macgruber, #SNL, #ADeadlyAbortion), #MilaKunis (#BlackSwan, #JupiterAscending, #That70sShow), #GeneSimmons (#KISS) and #TJMiller (SiliconValley, #BigHero6).

The Amazing Spider-man Sequel  (A.K.A. ASS)

One of our earliest episodes, where Darkest Timeline Justin and Wayne review The #AmazingSpider-man 2: #RiseofElectro and discuss what could very well be the worst hollywood tentpole film in a very long time. 

Darkest Timeline Justin says, #AmazingSpider-man Sequel (#ASS) Is a real stamina test. "At 2 and a half hours it felt like my eyes were going to drop out." On the upside #Spiderman's costume is much improved and the scenes of him flying through the streets are the best they've ever been. That said, the movie itself is a disjointed mess mostly interested in setting up future installments and spin offs rather than telling an actual story. #PeterParker (#AndrewGarfield) as a hero is still a character that is hard to connect with. The love story between him and #GwenStacey (#EmmaStone) is tiresome and after a while you just sort of try to tune it out or use it to relax your eyes. Character behaviour is driven by what the story needs rather than by their own personality and needs. The fight scenes are stunning but it does suffer from it being CGI smackdown between two characters. So what is the story about? Well nothing really there isnt one, it's just a garbled mess. 3/10

Wayne on the other hand thought ASS was so bad that he gave it a deficit score of -2/10. Because 0 wasn't low enough. If you want to hear why listen to the episode. If you don't agree you can twittify us @SGSpod or comment on our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/soylentgreenscreenpodcast

Veronica Mars / Captain America: Winter Soldier

In this episode Wayne and Darkest-timeline Justin discuss #VeronicaMars, starring #KirstenBell, #JerryO'connell, and EnricoColantoni. and #CaptainAmerica: #WinterSoldier, directed by the #russo brothers and starring #ChrisEvans, #ScarlettJohansson, #SamuelLJackson and #RobertRedford and the ways in which these films reinvented their respective genres. Yes, there are character spoilers but we promise that the mystery Veronica Mars solves is not discussed or given away. In the second half we discuss the ways that Captain America: Winter Soldier reinvented #espionagefilms and #paranoiafilms of the 60s and 70s on a grand scale. This is followed by further discussion on #TheRaid2 reinventing the fight/action film, with a few references to #Ozploitation films.

Premiere Episode: John Landis's Schlock A.K.A. Banana Monster

This was the first episode we ever recorded, back in april, 2014, so it is rough, by our own admission, but we promise, that we do get better, and we hope you come back.

In the first episode of The Soylent GreenScreen Podcast Wayne, Justin, Justin and Michelle take on John Landis' first film, #Schlock A.K.A Banana Monster (1973) to determine if #JohnLandis has a plan or if his films are simply crazy hijinks. This is followed up with further investigation into the running gags about #friedchicken in John Landis films such as #BluesBrothers and KentuckyFriedMovie plus a discussion on more contemporary films that winds up questioning the acting skills of #NickFrost. Sorry #NickFrost, if you do listen, we really do like you, we just were'nt fans of #CubanFury.
