On this episode, Dustin, mason and Jake talk about movies. In particular, two movies each. One movie that we love and was flawless in our own minds. A timeless classic that is hard to argue about its awesomeness. The other movie is a movie that we hoped would have been pure awesome, but did nothing but kick us right in the taint and laughed.Join us as we take a trip down movie memory lane. And stick around during the last 10 or 15 minutes as Jake brings up a little video game controversy.

    Ok, great show guys! My thought on women toons in war games is this, from the mouth of Captain Malcolm Reynolds, “If they try to kill you, you just try to kill them right back!”. I have no problem killing pixels in any configuration.

    Ultraviolet was directed by the same guy who did equilibrium, and was supposed to be a spiritual successor to that film. The reason it sucked so hard is late in the process of making it control of the film was taken away from the director. The studio cut more than an hour from it (I think) and re-edited the remainder into what got released. I’ve read about some of the stuff that was cut and it seems like it would have fixed most of the problems with the movie. I really loved the world and the visual style of the film and am holding out hope for a director’s cut some day

    Ultraviolet sucked so much because the studio didn’t like the movie that Kurt Wimmer (the director) delivered to them. So they took control, cut 40 mins from it, and re-edited what was left to sort of make sense and get a PG-13 rating.

    I’ve read a little about what was cut and what the movie was like before the studio started messing with it, and it sounds like it was a MUCH stronger film. I really liked the world it was set in and the visual style and am holing out hope for a director’s cut some day.
