The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode, this time for an Avengers film in 1967. This is a very different team than the one in the recent film franchise, and that might just send us off in some wildly varied directions. And since this is set decades ago, you may need our old friend Google to figure out who the heck we're picking in some cases 🙂. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of GoldenEye (1995), the first 007 movie that starred Pierce Brosnan. Brosnan's four-film run as Bond had a lot of highlights (and some significant lowlights), but that's not unusual for such a long-running series. We discuss the history of 007, the diversity of actors who played the role, the role of story in action films, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of two films by the Marx Brothers, Animal Crackers (1930) and A Night at the Opera (1935). If you need a break from the madness that is 2020, you can't go wrong with any of their movies. We discuss the chaos that was the Marx brothers, their Vaudeville background, stealing from the best, singing in movies, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

We discuss early action films, a little bit of Hollywood history, a little bit of the development of the sword itself, some compare and contrast with another great film, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present another Casting Call episode, this time for a modern film version of DC's Creature Commandos. They were in the title Weird War Tales, and they were a group of "traditional" movie monsters fighting for the good guys in World War 2. This one presents us with some interesting ideas, being somewhere between superheroes, movie monsters, and traditional drama stories. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
