The Good, The Bad and the JoBlo Movie Podcast
Summary: Weekly movie news updates, weekend box-office analysis, breaking contest information, review summaries from the site, and a glimpse into our top-notch forums with the "Thread of the Week". We also discuss all behind the scenes action at the JoBlo.com offices and all activities from the fanboys running the site. Updated every Monday and hosted by Jim Law. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Law and Moreno open a few emails which leads to discussion of MAN OF STEEL vs. THE AVENGERS, and the fact that PACIFIC RIM is still our most anticipated film of the year. Then the boys happily add 'Vikings' to the TV Round-Up before they review the best episode of 'Game of Thrones' yet. Moreno checks out STAKELAND while Law gets in deep with THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE. There's a quick look at what's coming out next week in New Releases and then it's time to say good-bye. This will be Law and Moreno's last JoBlo Movie Podcast. Thanks for listening, calling, writing, downloading, laughing, cringing, and getting drunk with us every week. Keep an eye out for what's next in our podcasting misadventures. Until then...... see ya!
There's a lot going on in this week's show. Some good, same bad, most of it I've already forgotten. Moreno get serious about his love of the Game of Thrones books and explains to us why the hardcore fans of the pages are getting a little pissed with the TV show. The boys take some voicemails where they are handed reviews for OBLIVION and LORDS OF SALEM, asked for their take on the ridiculous price of movie-going, and consider this month's Podcast Movie Commentary. Law watches a bunch of random awful movies (JACK & JILL, THE SITTER), revisits a couple great ones (STEP BROTHERS, ROLE MODELS), tries to act like he knows stuff about CLOUD ATLAS (he doesn't), and comments on the evolution of douchebaggery in Dane Cook's stand up specials.
There's a lot of passion in this week's show. Whether it's Moreno drooling over what's to come on 'Game of Thrones' or Law losing his mind over the incredible ending to the HARRY POTTER franchise. There's also early looks at IRON MAN 3 and OLDBOY from fans of the site, reviews of THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE, MEN IN SUITS, 'Top of the Lake', 'In the Flesh', and, of course, the 2013 March Madness of Hotties Champion. Like I said, it's jam packed with passionate love. And gin.

The March Madness of Hotties has come down to this, an epic championship match-up that will be decided by you. Visit our Facebook page this week and get to voting. Jimmy O stops by and gives us all the dirty secrets about what went down at the AITH EVIL DEAD Fest this past Thursday. Then Moreno and Law give their thought on the new film and re-visit the original trilogy for your listening pleasure. They also check out TOMORROW YOU'RE GONE and say good-bye to 'The Walking Dead' while saying hello to "Game of Thrones'. Moreno produces an epic GoT sounder using nothing but his purty voice (9 different versions of it), a quick look at the week's New Releases, and we're out. Go Blue! Again.
With Jurassic Park in IMAX 3D theaters right now, why not take The JoBlo Movie Podcast's commentary along for the ride? I mean, it's timely as shit, yo. We break down how fucked we'd be if we had to fight a dinosaur, how awesome Newman is at being all "Newmany", and how many packs of cigarettes Sam Jackson smoked in the movie. Damn Goldblum, you sexy!
Johnny Moreno is back just in time to reveal the March Madness of Hotties Final Four. There are upsets, hair pulling, and doughnut bumping. After the dust settles the boys wander into the TV Round-Up where they discuss the season finales of Banshee and Justified, and look ahead to the this week's Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Moreno finds time to watch BROKEN CITY while Law watches six HARRY POTTER movies. In a row. For the first time. There's also talk of Movie Jail, why different studios tend to make the exact same movies once in a while, and a voicemail review of THE CALL. Go Blue!
Johnny Moreno takes some time from his Pimp retreat to call in and help update the March Madness of Hotties Tournament as we narrow the field down to the Elite 8. After that, Jimmy O brings his big guns with reviews for EVIL DEAD, G.I. JOE: RETALIATION, and STOKER. Law checks out A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD and, the better "Die Hard" film, OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN. Jimmy also checks in with this year's Lebowski Fest and plays with his G.I. Joe doll a lot. Don't forget to head over to our Facebook page and start voting for which hotties you want in the Final 4 starting this Tuesday.
After talking about it for 4 years we've finally decided to kick off the March Madness of Hotties tournament. Law and Moreno choose 16 of the finest ladies in Hollywood and throw them into a battle royale. Visit our Facebook page to vote throughout the week. There's also some reviews of OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, JACK REACHER, and THE BRASS TEAPOT while Moreno catches up with THE MASTER. The usual suspects get the rundown in TV Round-Up and we take a look at all the week's New Releases.
First and foremost, we have joined Facebook. Please click here, like us and recommend us to your friends. Now, Law and Moreno start things off this week discussing which actors have the greatest iconic characters under their belt. TV Round-Up welcomes 'Banshee' with open arms. 'The Walking Dead' finally shows up in 2013 with a stellar episode. Justified is still just...... there. From there the boy review THE SWEENEY, Law catches up with SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN, and takes a look at IDENTITY THIEF. New Releases and we're out!
After a quick summary of what we consider an "adequate" Oscar ceremony, Law and Moreno jump into TV Round-Up and try to find the light at the end of The Walking Dead's tunnel. Soon after that is an epic look at the original Rambo trilogy. From the film's titles to the impressive body and length of Rambo's hair, the boys leave nothing out. There's also a review of FREAKY DEAKY, based on the Elmore Leonard novel, and a quick visit to the New Releases of the week.
What better way to celebrate Valentime's Month (it's a month now, right?) than to listen to The JoBlo Movie Podcast commentary for Top Gun! I mean, it's like a love story, right? We ponder a variety of ridiculous topics, such as: does the Air Force have a height requirement? Because Principal Strickland is short as fuck. Why doesn't Goose take his shirt off? Why do we WANT him to take his shirt off? And did you know Tim Robbins is up in this bitch? We're skeptical, since he has a helmet on the whole time. Come for the volleyball scene (heh, no really), stay for a drunken, nonsensical dissection of Tony Scott's 80s classic!
We sat down in the quiet before the Oscar storm and got drunk. This is what happened. Moreno watches SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, and the de-gansterization of Ice Cube. Law checks out the evolving legend of Stone Cold Steve Austin in THE PACKAGE. Together, the boys try to figure out exactly why 'The Walking Dead' is trying to piss them off. Moreno finishes up with 'House of Cards', and Law is still on board with 'Banshee'. It's all fighting, f*cking, and full frontal - there's nothing not to love with this show. Stay tuned later this month for our TOP GUN Commentary. It's the gayest thing ever.
The great Jimmy O joins the boys to discuss his love/hate relationship with A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, hosting the upcoming EVIL DEAD marathon in L.A., and how to lose one hundred pounds. The TV Round-Up fattens itself up again with the return of 'The Walking Dead' and the addition of 'Banshee'. Law and Moreno also talk 'House of Cards', ROOM 237, movies they used to hate and now love, Valentine's Day gifts, and cinematic urban legends.
