Better In The Dark# 152.5: BITD’S On The Box Office Grosses Of Destruction

In this messy show, Tom and Derrick looks at the rather epic levels of carnage in this year’s summer blockbuster and wonders…is it too much?  Are we being desensitized to all this damage?  Is it fair for Hollywood to call back to 9/11 for lazy affirmation of their plot developments?  And why is Guillermo Del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM a more responsible film than Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL?  All this, plus the Superman sequel Tom really wants to see!  You know you don’t want to wander Tokyo carrying a red shoe, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to Twitter us at @BITDShow!)

Netflix Streaming may be the greatest thing to happen to movie fans since VHS, but there’s so much to see that The Boys Outta Brooklyn enlisted the aid of that Instant Depths videonaut Adam Orchekowski to help our listeners discover the gems hidden within that service.  Along the way, the trio celebrate The Kids In The Hall, Tim Roth, The Apple, DC Animation and so much more!  It’s an hour plus of great film conversation you don’t want to miss.  You know you don’t want to become a chicken, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow)!

Richard Matheson (February 20, 1926-June 23, 2013)

In honor of the passing of Richard Matheson, a Great, Great Man…our examination of the filmic adaptations of one of his greatest works:

title i am legend

 

The Guys Outta Brooklyn spend some time waiting for the end of the world by examining the classic Richard Matheson novella I Am Legend and its three adaptations. Each of these trio of films are very different in tone and approach, and Tom and Derrick will compare and contrast them all. From the black-as-pitch black and white melodrama of The Last Man on Earth to Charlton Heston kicking ass in The Omega Man to Will Smith and his dog trying to survive in I Am Legend, we cover them all! Plus some talk about mixing animation and live action, and Tom is vindicated when Derrick finally watches the Kristen Bell tragedy Pulse. Bare those teeth like you mean it–get to clicking!

Episode 131: TOM AND DERRICK VS. THE SAFE HOUSE, GRECIAN ARMORED ROSAMUND PIKE, THE PAST HIS PRIME MEDICAL GENIUS, THE INDIAN HOTEL, AND JOSS WHEDON

In this massive Review Episode, The Boys Outta Brooklyn discuss the movie everyone’s been waiting five years for…The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel!

Just kidding…we do cover that film, as well as others and the House Series Finale, but the bulk of over two hours of talk concerns the two films of Joss Whedon, Cabin In The Woods and The Avengers! And if that isn’t enough, there’s lots of writing talk and bitching about comics. It’s Shwarma-rific, so get to clicking!
