Review 10: Tombstone

Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene skin Tombstone and see what happens. That’s right, we’re throwing down on Wyatt and the Earp brothers, Doc Holiday and the Cowboys, the shoot out at the O.K Corral, and the vendetta that followed.

Ad hoc is our movie and entertainment show and this episode we're talking everything from Kevin Jarre’s enormous script to George P. Cosmatos’ alleged ghost direction for Kurt Russell to the themes of friendship shot throughout. With a stacked cast and absolutely killer dialog, was it a hell of a western-meets-action movie blend, or was it not no daisy at all? Find out!

Review 9: Blade runner

Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene podcast about things you wouldn't believe. Androids dreaming of electric sheep. Blades running after replicants shown to be real men. All those… versions… so many cuts, like tears… in… rain.

Ad hoc is our entertainment and media podcast, and this episode is all about Ridley Scott's seminal work, Blade Runner. From production problems to casting curiosities to effects, we put Blade Runner through the VK test! So what motifs did we pick up? Which themes resonated the most? And most importantly, who's a replicant?! Find out!

Review 8: The Princess Bride

Our names are Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene. This is the Princess Bride. Prepare for podcast! This is the one where we give you our words as Spaniards that we talk, inconceivably enough, all about Rob Reiner’s classic storybook story.

What made it so memorable, how did they get away with making it at all, who’s left, unemployed, in Greenland, and what happens when it goes to 50? (Yes, to 50!) Find out!

Review 7: RoboCop

Dead or alive you’re podcasting about Robocop! It’s another edition of 80s movies with Don Melton, joined by Matt Drance, Guy English, and Rene Ritchie. Yes, it's a bunch of Apple nerds talking all about the Paul Verhoeven classic, which, like the Matrix, has no sequels (but does have guns, guns, guns!).

How well does it hold up, was it prescient, how does it cross-over with other classic movie and TV fare, and have any of our demos ever gone ED 209 wrong? Find out!

Samsung has been airing a new Galaxy Gear ad that's structurally similar to the original iPhone ad Apple aired back in 2007. That's brought up the usual copy cat charges but former Apple evangelist Matt Drance points us the resemblance isn't any more that skin deep. From Apple Outsider:

Review 1: Star Wars and Disney

Earlier this week, Disney announced they were buying Lucasfilm, so we gathered Guy English, Matt Drance, Dave Wiskus, Dan Moren, and Rene Ritchie together for an emergency broadcast. Directors, cast, crew, stories, traps, heroes' journeys, timelines, themes, theatrics, dramatics, and dreams, no topic is safe when a bunch of tech nerds get their Force talk on.
