Originally Aired: 11/09/18 – Our review of The Grinch. Play an interview with Fran Kranz and Brett Simmons and the geek news of the week.
We talk the news of the week. Disney announces the name of their new streaming service. Harvard researchers have a theory that says Oumuamua asteroid is actually a spacecraft. European Space Agency releases research that shows a lost continent under Antarctica that could help better explain all tectonic plate shifts.
Our review of The Grinch starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Cameron Seely, Rashida Jones. The Grinch and his loyal dog, Max, live a solitary existence inside a cave on Mount Crumpet. His main source of aggravation comes during Christmastime when his neighbors in Whoville celebrate the holidays with a bang. When the Whos decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch realizes there is one way to gain peace and quiet. With help from Max, the green grump hatches a scheme to pose as Santa Claus, steal Christmas and silence the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all.
We also play Mr. Green’s interview with actor Fran Kranz and director Brett Simmons about their new film You Might Be The Killer at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. The film had a great showing at the festival and also aired on SYFY throughout October. You’ll hear Green’s full interview with the guys. Inspired by an exchange of tweets between Sam Sykes and Chuck Wendig, You Might Be The Killer (directed by Brett Simmons) is the story of a camp counsellor who finds himself in the middle of a cliched scary movie massacre. Looking for guidance on what to do to stay alive, he calls his friend who happens to be an expert on horror film tropes. While tracing back through his steps, Chuck (Alyson Hannigan) presents the possibility that Sam (Fran Kranz) might actually be the killer.
It was a great show!
