The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. We took this week off for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States. We'll be back next week with more of our usual silly behavior. If you have a moment, though, check out our website and our weekly picks, and maybe grab a rerun episode to listen to. And if we don't say it enough, thank you for listening and hanging out with us 🙂   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice channel on the 4th Saturday of the month; details on Facebook...

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 of the Geeks Podcast

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 is pleased to present our discussion of summer movies. But since we can't be sure that we'll have movies this summer, we took it back to the summer movies of 1985. The 1980s was a decade of highs and lows, in movies or otherwise, and '85 had some major hits and some major misses. We talk a whole lot about the ones we liked, as much as we dare about the ones we didn't, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
