Ep. 831: Where Tupac Shakur will not cameo in The Hangover 3 Video
Jeff gives a spoiler-free review of "The Dark Knight Rises," plus a bunch of lesser-known facts about the Batman movie franchise on today's 404 episode.
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.
The spoiler-free review of The Amazing Spiderman headlines The 404 Show today.
It's our last show before the three-day weekend, so we're wrapping up with a review of the movie box office, and some new services that'll help with the cost of tickets. We're also exploring the idea of 4D movie theaters, and quizzing Wilson on another episode of Tang that Tune.
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.
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!
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."
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.
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!
Today's episode of The 404 Podcast starts off with a intimate glimpse into Justin's mind, so we recommend throwing on some goggles before watching. He reveals that his name was initially supposed to be Jonathan, but due to complications surrounding the pronunciation of his name, the doctor just shortened it to the simpler-sounding name, Justin. Jeff also has a funny story about his father's name, and it turns out that it wasn't always Sweet Lou!
