Doug Loves Movies

Doug Loves Movies is a comedy podcast hosted by Doug Benson, an American stand-up comedian and actor.  The Podcast has been going since 2006 but I have only just stumbled across it, and I cannot get enough.  I thought it was a movie review podcast and it kinda is in a general way but it is so much more.  Doug gets guests on normally actors and/or friends and they just chat about movies and have a laugh playing games and messing about.  Recorded in front of a live audience who get involved by making name tags which the guests then pick and play for during the games section of the show.

The Games

The Leonard Maltin Game: Best described as “Name That Tune” but with movies instead of songs. The guest are given hints to a movie and asked to guess it based on the clues.  All clues are from  Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide.

Doing Lines with Mark:  Daniel Van Kirk recites a film quotes as Mark Wahlberg; and either a contestant or an audience member must name the film where the quote is taken from.  I like to think that it is actually Mark Wahlberg.

Build a Title: In this game you name a movie and then the next person uses the first or last word of that title to build upon.  Example: Die Hard, Die Hard Rain, Live and let Die Hard Rain, Live and Let Die Hard Rain Man, Live and let Die Hard Rain, Live and Let Die Hard Rain Man of Steel.

How Much Did This Shit Make?: Which is like the price is right but with how much a movie made according to IMDB.

The Seth Rogen Game (A.K.A. Last Man Stanton): In which an audience member will name an actor or director with a large body of work and the guests take turns to name movies they are in until they can’t and are put out.

Other features of the game include Tweet Relief: Tweets About Movies, Watch This/Not That, Not for Emetophobes, Name a Movie, A-B-C-Deez Nuts, Lincoln or Bane?, Love, Like, Hate, Hate-Like, F Marry Kill: Movies, and From the Corrections Department.  Its worth checking out, it has me in stitches when I listen to it and I have went through so many over the past couple weeks!  You can find the website Doug Loves Movies and also subscribe via ITunes or whichever device you use!

drabblecast

Continuing my Pirate Appreciation Month I will point you all towards this podcast on The Drabblecast.   Boojum, Parts One and Two by  Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette. This podcast story is about of a group of space pirates, yes space pirates, and its focus is primarily on one called Black Alice and her relationship with Lavinia Whateley.  The twist is that the Lavinia Whateley is a living space ship called a Boojum.  It is a really solid and enjoyable story, the depth of detail really transports you into the world and you do care what happens to the characters.  It has scope for so much more in the extended universe do i will be looking out for more!

The Game Theorists

photoI stumbled upon this YouTube channel and had to share it with all of you video game fans out there!  The show aims to separate the fact from the fiction in some of your favorite video games, and come up with some amazing theories you may or may not of thought about! From arrows in knees to zombies in space, from headshots to Halo, they have got it covered. Learn random info while looking in-depth at the designer’s decisions for old, new, and forgotten gaming gems.  It also has a kick ass intro theme! I have been hooked on this show!

Drabblecast 302 – The Next Logical Step

drabblecastI have spoken before about the drabblecast, a weekly audio fiction podcast that brings “Strange Stories, By Strange Authors, for Strange Listeners”.  The latest episode I listened to was Episode 302 The Next Logical Step and it is exceptionally good.   The Drabble on this episode is also really good so the whole thing is well worth a listen!  Click the link provided to listen, I would of liked to have a wee play button but currently i have not the space, but i will tidy up this post after the upgrade!

I would seriously recommend all of you to subscribe to the Drabblecast. I normally lay in bed at night and listen to a story or have it on my player as i walk to work in the morning! Some of my friends say that they cannot do podcast audio fiction, but once a story takes hold you will be surprised at how deep you fall into it!

Badman’s Reviews

I stumbled upon this YouTube channel and was instantly hooked!  This guy Badman reviews video games, as the title suggests! Not only does he have an amazing informative and funny show but it is set up with style.  From the introductory credits sequence to the overlay of the video games throughout the review its a absolute joy to watch.  I have been all over Twitter and Facebook about him and texting my mates to have a look at the site!  I don’t subscribe to all that much on YouTube but I instantly clicked that button with this show.  The guy knows his stuff but it does not preach to the audience, in fact its just his take on it and does point that out.  Loads of what he talks about I agree with. He is funny, doesn’t take himself serious and has a laugh while talking about his favourite thing.. Video Games.
