The first prequel-sequel in the Star Trek reborquel lands with a wet thud and Team Mamo assembles to discuss what went wrong with Star Trek Into Darkness…
Matthew Price sits down with Justin Szlasa, producer of the new documentary Side By Side, to discuss the generational transition from celluloid to digital cinematography, and all the things it means. Meanwhile, Matt Brown eats popcorn.
That’s how Dad did it, that’s how America does it, and it’s worked out pretty well so far – but how far can you push the comic book movie in the post-Avengers world? Team Mamo spoils the holy crap out of Iron Man 3 under the scorching heat of Ben Kingsley’s sunglassed stare…
Mamo returns! We look at the changing face of China in light of Iron Man 3, the sci-fi might of Tom Cruise and Oblivion, before diving into the whole Zach Braff Kickstarter fracas. There’s some larger point to be made here about how and where movies make money, we’re sure.
Mamo rounds third base with a potpourri discussion of Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel (and their respective final trailers), Iron Man 3 (and its leading man), 42 (and the current state of sports movies), and the hows and whys of becoming a man.

One month later to the day, Matt Brown returns from Middle Earth and Matt Price regales him with everything that’s happened in Hollywoodland since he’s been away. New Zealand travel tips abound! Plus, yet another random stranger asks our opinion about Episode VII! It’s like nothing’s changed at all.
The Very Important Dudes and one Dudette return to talk about the big Brucie, who is excellent in pretty much everything except Die Hard 5, as we discovered subsequent to recording this podcast. Still, it’s fun. Listen here.
