James and John discuss the first season of Daredevil on Netflix. With Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters, we've cleared Nerd Tangent's Superhero Spoiler Space, so there will be spoilers for Daredevil in this episode, but we put them in the back half and call it out when we're about to go down that path, so you will be warned what to avoid if you haven't yet watched the show.
This IS the podcast you're looking for! The Star Wars trailer dropped a few weeks ago, and more than the Force was awakened. In the first-ever James-free episode, Todd and John dig deep into their nerdy Star Wars interiors to talk about 35 years of fandom and dreams that have been stirred by the latest installment in the Star Wars saga... or, at least what they're thinking when they see 2 minutes of clips from a movie that will come out in just over 7 months.
Since 2004, Franklin Leonard has been publishing the Black List - a survey of the most well-liked screenplays from the year that were not yet in production. This week, the nerds review the list from 2010 to see how many ended up as feature films, how many they would have greenlit if they were studio heads, and how many were just variations on a well-worn theme. 2010 was a good year for representation, if you were a secret assassin living an otherwise mundane life, or if you had a small notebook full of obtuse rules that would help you land the perfect mate. Join us now, as we delve deep into the 2010 screenplay Black List.
This podcast is the Hooded Justice of the Nerd Tangent library! That's a joke, and will make sense after you listen in, as the nerds discuss Batman V Superman, Boyhood and Snowpiercer! If these topics don't grab you, you're probably someone from the Front of the train.
What do you do when you're a player short for your favorite board game? You make a podcast! Todd and James talk about what games we've been playing recently, which ones we'd like to play, and what draws us to certain kinds of games. We also go on a long tangent about kicking kids off Todd's lawn!
Now that we've sorted possible shortcomings in our beloved Star Wars Trilogy, it's time to look at possible positives in the hated Prequel Trilogy. Is there anything in there to love? Can James' hatred of those movies be reduced from 100%?
There are a lot of films that could be improved by making some cuts and reshooting some scenes, but in this episode, Todd and James become Movie Doctors, and improve the overall health of some favorite flicks by adding a few scenes. It's addition by addition on this John-Free episode of the Nerd Tangent podcast, streaming LIVE right into your ear holes. That's a technical movie doctor term.
The nerds discuss the Star Wars trilogy (a shock, right?) with regard to Sam Hill's listicle on whatculture.com - 10 Problems Nobody Wants to Admit About the Original Star Wars Trilogy.
