PCR #35 - Not Another Teen Podcast

September 29th, 2015

In this episode, the X-Man takes up the hosting duties as Xavier & Travis talk about teen movies from the 90s!  Back in the 90s, Hollywood started releasing a bunch of teen movies that involved several up-and-coming actors, written and directed by some great talents as well.  It just so happened that Travis & X were both in the exact age demographic as when these movies came out, so they are counting down the top 10 films from that era, discussing the actors, characters, the clothing, the attitudes, and how the world was so different just a short time ago.  What's an atlas anyways?  Also, what's their personal favorites out of the list?  What characters are the most unlikable?  Which movie had the best soundtrack?  What are the '10 things that Xavier hates about a certain movie'?  Hit the download button to find out!

PCR #34 - Cruise Control

September 15th, 2015

We go on an impossible mission in this episode because we have a need....a need for Tom Cruise!  In this new spotlight episode, we take a look back at his career from the early 80s with his hits like Top Gun, Risky Business, Color of Money, & Outsiders.  We also discuss his films from the 90s like A Few Good Men, Interview With a Vampire, Jerry Maguire, & Magnolia which really helped shape his career, along with a little indie flick called Mission Impossible.  Of course you can't have an episode on Tom Cruise and NOT mention his antics over the years, so we get into couch hopping and a thing called Scientology.  We also take a look at films such as Last Samurai, Collateral, Vanilla Sky, and Edge of Tomorrow.  You don't have to look far & away for anything else, so sit back with a nice cocktail with your eyes wide shut, and enjoy the show!

The conclusion to our huge 2-part review of the X-Men cinematic universe!  Travis & Professor X pick up right where they left and start with the first Wolverine solo film.  They go back & forth with the pros and cons of that film, as well as discussing if that one is better or worse than X-Men The Last Stand.  They then move right along to the next stage of the franchise, First Class, which introduced a whole new cast & characters to the series.  They wrap up by covering the next Wolverine film & what went wrong with that one, then with the most recently released film which set to totally reboot the whole franchise, Days of Future Past.  Stay tuned to the end, we've included thoughts on what's been released so far for X-Men: Apocalypse and the Deadpool movies.  This is another fun one, so if you're a fan of the X-Men movies or not, check it out and leave a comment to tell us how we did!
