Well, we always say, “There isn’t much to talk about this week,” and then we ring up a 2 hour show. From now on we always have a TON of things to talk about. With that being said here’s what we covered this week:
News – Kevin Smith start writing Clerks 3
Trailer – Much Ado About Nothing
Trailer – The Hangover: Part III
Trailer – The Conjuring
Review – 21 and Over (Bryce and Rick)
FLIX WE PIX
Rick – Red Lights
Bryce – Trading Places
Mike – Happy Gilmore
News – The boys rant about publishers not supporting development on Wii U and Vita
Early Impressions/Review – MLB 2k13
Early Impressions/Review – MLB 13: The Show
Due to time constraints, Rick gets “Matt Damon’ed” and will talk video games next week.
This week we come at you live (on Sunday) from the SSWL studios. For that reason, the sound qualitiy is kind of bad, but you can still hear everything fine. To make up for it, the awesome director, Ryan O’Leary joined us IN PERSON! (Video coming soon.) Without a format we just shoot the shit, drink some beers and have some fun.
On this week’s episode of Some S**t We Like, we talk about some of the movies, games and tech that have our interest in 2013.
Here is a best of 2012 list from friend of the show Francis Sky. So read, enjoy, and leave some feedback because after all these lists are not supposed to end the conversations, but meant to start them. Now on to the list:
1. Avengers- This was probably the most fun I had at the movies in a while. Marvel managed to put some of its top characters in the same movie without over saturating the content. Director Joss Whedon managed to make a comic film that both does not insult old fans and does not punish the new ones. All the characters were given equal time to shine and the final battle in New York was a wonder to behold in 3D.
2. Frankenweenie- Frankenweenie felt like a return to form for Tim Burton. Combining elements of classic horror with a morbid sense of humor, the film felt like something in the vein of earlier works like Beetlejuice. The emotional buttons were also pushed, because who can’t sympathize with losing a pet? Unfortunate timing (coming after Paranorman and Hotel Transylvania) really hurt its box office, but hopefully it can find a bigger audience on DVD/Blu-ray.
It’s finally here. The year has ended and its time for all three of us to give you our personal top five lists of 2012. We start out with movies and then move on to video games. Just like last year, we invited Ryan O’Leary to join us. We won’t list our picks here, so you’ll have to listen up. Enjoy!
