The Rabblecast

Here we go again! This is our second movie commentary track. In honor of the 25th anniversary we sit down and watch the 1994 Cult Classic, The Crow. Starring, Brandon Lee, Rochelle Davis, Ernie Hudson, and Michael Wincott.

Created by James O'Barr, The Crow tells a gritty revenge story set in the Motor City. With a driving soundtrack and the mystique of Brandon Lee's on set death, The Crow became a standout film of 1994 with legions of fans to this day.

Enjoy the commentary!

Many of our shows are centered around current events, pop culture, or historical events. This episode in particular turns inward. We take a trip down memory lane for Doug and learn about some of his background and what led to so of his choices today.

From there we talk about a Grind Core band. We won't mention the name here because it is NSFW, but we do talk about the band and the track listing for one of their albums. Seth Putnam heads up this particular band, if that helps any. But again, we have to say, NSFW.

And then we talk about Christopher Thomas Knight aka The North Pond Hermit. We talk about his 27 year disappearance and what led to his capture in 2013.

We saw Avengers: Endgame and we are here to talk about it. SPOILERS ahead if you have not yet seen it yet!

The 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Endgame brings together all of the Marvel/Disney movies since the release of Iron Man(2008) and tells a satisfying story that pays off a bunch of different story threads, jokes, call backs... it's fan service to a very high regard and eleven years worth of story telling. In terms of comic book story, it feels like you're reading an Annual issue of the Avengers as the "Giant-Size" story unfolds in this three hour journey.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, and the geek out moments keep coming throughout. Again, if you haven't seen the movie itself, watch it first and then come back and enjoy our take on Marvel's, Avengers: Endgame. Excelsior!

On this episode, Doug shares his story of a recent outing to a gun range in Pennsylvania. Guns, ammo, and friends. What can go wrong? Remember your gun safety training and watch out for the kickback.

We also talk about the recent news of The Oscars committee deciding on whether or not to allow Netflix movies to be allowed consideration for their prestigious award. Steven Spielberg is opposed to the idea of Netflix films being allowed consideration, but then again, Mr. Spielberg is from a different school of thought when it comes to films. Can we see Netflix films in "Best of..." categories?

From there, we talk about some upcoming movies/shows and some hopefuls along the way. Y The Last Man(currently in development), Sandman(the movie is stuck in development purgatory), and a few others. There's even a little Avengers: Endgame talk about the run time of the upcoming film(Note: this was recorded before Avengers: Endgame was released in theaters.). At just over 3 hours, we suggest a few other films you can watch to train your bladder.
