Andy is awake, Josh is back in his attic, and Karl is excited, because for Episode 034 we’re reviewing “Star Trek Into Darkness.” To help us review this epic popcorn flick, we brought back special guest WILLIS WHEELER of the Terror Troop horror movie podcast.
Also in this episode, we bring you some Mini Reviews (with two 10-rated movies), and some take-it-to-the-bank recommendations that will be sure-bet entertainment for you. We also enjoy some listener feedback from our pal, Deadbox Mike Ingram, and a great comment about “Disconnect” from Len. Be sure that you don’t miss next week’s podcast, when we’ll interview Anthony Bruno, author of “The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer,” which is the source material that the new Michael Shannon film, “The Iceman,” is adapted from. So, we’ll be reviewing the book and the movie next week with author Anthony Bruno. So, tune in, and please subscribe in iTunes, if you haven’t already! Continue reading →
