Lockout

Geek Scholars PodcastThis week on GeekScholars Movie News, presented by Eclipse Magazine, we jump into the probability that Sir Ben Kinglsey will be playing the villain in Iron Man 3…but who?

Then listen to us share our optimism after view the preview forLooper, a sci-fi time-travel actioneer starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as, well, a younger Bruce Willis.

After that, the GeekScholars present their non-spoilerific review of The Cabin in the Woods, and GeekScholar Chris flies solo as he praises Guy Pearce’s performance inLockout, but bashes on pretty much every other aspect of the movie. Then, as always, we close out with some quickies…

But! If you are a listener who heeded our advice and DID see The Cabin in the Woods, first off, we are very proud of you, but secondly, we encourage you to hang out after the credits to listen to our after-show bonus discussion where geek out about The Cabin in the Woodsa bit more, but with tons of spoilers dotting the conversation.

Listen to the glory!

Lockout is to Escape From New York what Battle Beyond The Stars was to The Magnificent Seven and The Seven Samurai – a low-budget romp that transplants one’s setting [Battle Beyond The Star to space from the old west or ancient Japan; Lockout to space from a post-apocalyptic New York that’s been turned into a gigantic prison].. The plot remains the same, but the setting and the characters’ names have changed. The result is fast-paced, violent entertainment that’s enhanced by witty dialogue and just enough unexpected variations on time worn themes to keep the audience guessing.
