The Rabblecast

In a change of pace we decided to try our hand at recording a commentary track for one of our favorite movies. The subject of this commentary recently hit its 20th anniversary mark and could be considered the starting point for modern Marvel movies.

Blade(1998), starring Wesley Snipes, Stephen Dorff, Kris Kristofferson, and N'Bushe Wright.

A half-vampire, half-mortal man becomes a protector of the mortal race, while slaying evil vampires.

We hope you enjoy the commentary.

Have you ever had a movie that you held off on watching? Maybe you missed it in the theaters? You thought, I'll wait for it to come out on DVD. Doug recently watched the Tim Burton classic, Ed Wood. While Hernandez was baffled by Arnold Schwarzenegger's Sci-Fi/Action adventure, The 6th Day

From there the discussion turns to movies, again.

We also say goodbye to a great character actor who appeared in numerous film and TV projects.

Scott Wilson(aged 76), was an American actor. He had more than 50 film credits, including In the Heat of the Night, In Cold Blood, The Great Gatsby, Dead Man Walking, Pearl Harbor, and Junebug. He played veterinarian Hershel Greene on the AMC television series The Walking Dead from 2011 to 2014.

And we're not done yet. We also talk about the recent news of former Guardians of the Galaxy Director, James Gunn making the move over to DC and Warner Bros. Pictures to write and possibly Direct the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.

And then, we talk about the recent UFC battle between, Conner McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. We talk about the highlights of the bout and the chaos that occurred after one of the most anticipated MMA fights in recent history.

Rain! Recently we got a lot of it. In fact, two major storms ran past our area. While we didn't get hit directly, we did get hit with some flooding. Thankfully we didn't get hit that bad, but some of our friends dealt with a nightmare before a special occasion.

The main topic of discussion on this episode is the recent casting news about Superman and Batman! DC/Warner Bros. seem to be reconsidering changing out actors as they move forward with the DC Extended Universe(DCEU). What does this mean for Henry Cavill, who recently posted a video in response to the news. What about Ben Affleck, who recently entered rehab due to a drinking problem?

And of course, since we're talking about comic book characters and movies, we also include some discussions about Marvel characters and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We talk about some fan theories regarding Infinity War and the follow up Avengers film.
