Ep. 1094: Where we've made it to Livestream Video
The spoiler-free review of The Amazing Spiderman headlines The 404 Show today.
Grand Theft Auto V comes out tomorrow but Jeff gives us a preview and a spoiler-free review of the game, including how it stacks up to past games in the franchise, the insane depths of Los Santos, and the beautiful cinematic sequences that parallel triumphs like "The Big Lebowski."
We're finally ready to devote an entire episode to The Dark Knight Rises and Nolan's entire Batman trilogy...spoilers included. Jeff Sussman from The BatSignal Podcast joins us to discuss the ending of the film and the Easter Eggs for diehard Batfans, the evolution of the costume, Nolan's subtle homage to the comics, and how exactly Bane manages to eat while wearing that mask.
We're back from the holiday weekend and we all had a good time...until The Hangover 2 happened. The movie itself wasn't as awful as expected, so tune into a spoiler-free review on today's episode before you rush out and give Zach Galifianakis another $14 bucks.
Maybe we should have used "So bad, but so good" as our show motto instead of "High Tech, Low Brow!" Today's show is a good example of that, and we kick it off with Wilson's brief and spoiler-free review of Bruno. We also talk about the rise of the Twitterns, Apple breaking the Pre-iTunes lovefest, and Jeff meeting Tony Hawk!
I'll ruin the surprise for you right now: the worst movie of the summer (only four days in so far) is "Transformers 2: Rise of the Fallen." On today's show, we rip apart this atrocity even more, spoiler-free! Wilson also gives us his first impressions of his brand new Apple iPhone 3GS and discovers the weirdest camera issue ever. I love you, Wilson, but that came out of NOWHERE!
Mark Licea jumps back into the guest seat today for a chat about Wolfenstein: New Order, a hack that gives you a spoiler-free Internet, and Nintendo's big problem in advance of E3.
The final episode of "Lost" aired yesterday, but this episode is spoiler-free! However, you should know that Wilson couldn't handle the emotional scenes at the end of the episode and shed a few tears. But he also cried at the end of "Little Nicky," so don't expect too much.
Today we'll unwrap Chipotle's test kitchen secret: a 1,500 calorie mutant known only to fatties as "The Quesarito," and other lesser-known regrets from greasy fast food chains.
"Her," by Spike Jonze, is a movie that follows a modern man as he falls in love with his operating system. Naturally, we'll need an entire show to review it, and CNET's Ty Pendlebury and Sarah Tew sub in for Jeff to join the conversation. Warning: This episode contains spoilers!
