Episode 94: He’s Really Slimy

He’s Really Slimy

This week, TJ and Chad travel back in time to 2005 to review what TJ considers to be Michael Bay’s only really good film: ‘The Island’. It seems appropriate since Bay’s latest film ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ will be hitting theaters this weekend. You also won’t want to miss Chad’s thoughts on ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’, some analysis of Young Adult Material and some geeking out about the upcoming ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’, Harrison Ford’s injury on the set of ‘Star Wars’, TNG Season 6 Blu-ray, Rian Johnson as director for ‘Star Wars VIII’, ‘The Judge’ trailer staring Robert Downy Jr. and Robert Duvall, and Joe Darnell’s op-ed on marketing films.

  • Good Films Get Marketing Late In Production

    Transformers 5, along with G.I. Joe 3, Paranormal Activity 5, Hansel and Gretal 2, and Beverly Hills Cop 4 are slated for release in 2016. Color me skeptical about all of the above, since the films in these franchises leave much to be desired. If you’re into these films, you and I would have some serious disagreements.
