Ep. 1094: Where we've made it to Livestream Video
The spoiler-free review of The Amazing Spiderman headlines The 404 Show today.
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.
Rafe Needleman is drawn in to a love story with the new Motorola Droid. Dare we call it a Dro-mance? It's certainly a flashy new phone for Verizon, which hasn't always been known for flashy new phones. We also congratulate Google on getting the contract to provide e-mail to the city of Los Angeles. Well, congratulations and we fear for them. Because if they mess this up, it is so over.
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.
The Dark Knight returns to game consoles in Batman: Arkham City, the follow up to the 2009 instant classic Arkham Asylum.
