The Mandate: Episode 14 – Justice League

  The Marvel vs. DC Comics war has been going on longer than I’ve been alive. Naturally, this battle would cross over into each property’s Cinematic Universe. After a million and a half movies, Marvel has proven their merit in the movie making business and are universally accepted as great. Sure, some movies are better than others but overall Marvel seems to know what they are doing. DC on the other hand, well, that’s a bit of a mess. With the exception of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, you have to go all the way back to 1992’s Batman Returns

Stories can cause so much trouble. On an unassuming street lies an unassuming house inside of which is unassuming man; what he can’t know, is that the word is out that the place is haunted.

The Mandate: Episode 13 – Ragnarokin’ N Rollin’ with Thor

  Well, well, well. Look what we have here. A brand new, intergalactic episode of The Mandate. Returning to the podcast is previous guest, Brian Carola (I know him! He’s a friend from work!), former bassist of East Of Anything and my constant MCU companion, and naturally we went to check out the next continuation of the universe in Thor: Ragnarok. Personally, I’ve always felt like the Thor flicks got a bad rap when compared to the whole of the MCU, but I’d take Thor and The Dark World over the Ed Norton fronted Hulk film, as well as the

LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! Bonus Episode- Neil Robinson Follow Up!

A follow-up interview with Neil Robinson of Nausea, Squat or Rot, Tribal War Records, Final Warning, Jesus Chrust, ABC NO RIO, and the Farmageddon Growers’ Collective. I first interviewed Neil in the summer of 2015. That interview appears in the main body of interviews on the LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! website and in all the other places it’s been posted to through the Cinepunx podcast network. While I was in Portland, Oregon (and surrounding environs) in mid-October, 2017, I paid a call on Neil to catch up a bit. After we shared a meal at Pappa G.’s, a vegan deli, I recorded this

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 07: Horror Lite

We here at GMAM love spooky movies just as much as anyone, and given it’s October, we couldn’t resist doing a seasonally appropriate episode. But, as Cinepunx already has an authoritative podcast on all things horror-related (hey, Horror Business!), we decided to go a somewhat uncharted route and do a double feature on a couple of our favorite old-fashioned creepy thrillers. These two picks are atmospheric and ripe with psychological tension, but by some people’s standards may not exactly be called horror movies. Effectively, I’m calling them Horror Lite™ (same great taste, less filling). First, we explore director Charles Laughton’s

Black Sun Dispatches Episode 13: A Good Old Fashioned Ghost Story

Welcome to the city beneath the black sun. Lost in a dark world, surrounded by an endless desert filled with countless threats, the citizens still standing are forced to make a life for themselves in a strange and hostile land where terror and wonder wait behind every corner. Halloween is all made up of stories, and even in the city beneath the black sun, where terror is as plentiful as oxygen, the denizens are sure to mark the season with ghoulish tales. Priya Patel has a ghost story that she’s known all her life, a story that somehow bridges her
