Remember When
The official Geek Out show from FilmTangent.com. Remember When is dedicated to all the TV shows, cartoons, and movies from years past that have made us the geeks we are.

Good podcasters always pay their debts.   For Remember When, that means we're finally giving you what you've all been waiting for! 

We're heading to Westeros and taking a deep dive into Game of Thrones.  

After several years of Parris' urging to get on the bandwagon, Jay has finally (FINALLY) caught up on the show.  He's so eager to talk about it that we barely have time to do a show intro!  We just jump right in.

We won't lie:  It's an intense talk.

It took Jay a few attempts to get into the show, and you probably won't be able to guess why.  We rave about some of the best performances in the show, and it's not just dominated by Peter Dinklage.  And we talk about THAT MOMENT in Season 3, when the wedding gets a little red.

We don't just cover individual episodes either.  We talk about our crazy theories on how the show will end, and what's in store for some of our favorite characters.  

And the epic conversations don't just stop at Dem Thrones!  These past few weeks have given us a bevy of news from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  We've seen some of the first meaty scenes from Age of Ultron, we've seen the full roster of movies that's coming for Phase 3.... and boy, are we giddy.

Cap 3.  Civil War.  The Infinity War.  It's just.... so beautiful.  And we talk about them all, and how this giant story is about to get woven together.  

There's a lot of goodness in the show, if we say so ourselves!

Oh hai!  We're back, and we have so much good stuff for you.  Episode 64 starts off with a trip down memory lane as we journey through another Great Movie Jay Has Never Seen.   Planes, Trains, and Automobiles may not be the hallmark moment in the careers of John Candy and Steve Martin, but it's certainly one of the movies that leaves a lasting impression!

With fresh eyes, Jay talks about his journey through this unique road trip flick and how it gave him a new appreciation for some of the comedic elements of these two actors. 

After the appetizer, we deliver the main course of this episode... Guardians of the Galaxy!  And almost a year after we started to see the first bits of this movie, we're happy to report that Guardians has (mostly) exceeded our expectations.  We're giving you a lengthy look at Marvel's latest piece in Phase 2.  It feels like Firefly!   GROOT!  Chris Pratt is unstoppable, and holy cow, that voice acting from Bradley Cooper.  Also, GROOT!  But it's not without its flaws, and we're happy to talk about those at length too.  Jay talks about the biggest hiccup for him, and Parris forecasts the next 10 years of Marvel movies.  

But it doesn't end there!  Now that Marvel is doing SO well, it brings a Stark light (see what we did there?) onto the DC Universe.  With such a rich set of characters and fun stuff, how can they be failing so hard?  We give some honest feedback on their underperformance at this year's Comic-Con and why DC needs to step up their game.  

And as our show ends, Jay delivers a proposition that leaves Parris stunned.  It's the great Hulking of 2014.  You won't want to miss this, because it's about to get ... chilly...

We've unofficially dubbed May as "The Month of Marvel" and to celebrate, we have a brand new podcast.  Don't call it a regular release, or you might jinx us!

Parris and Jay spend a few minutes catching up.  We talk about the recent Episode VII announcements, and Parris cycles back on the recently rebooted Robocop.  

Godzilla's recent arrival in theaters piqued Parris' curiousity and we talk about the latest take on a classic franchise.  Thankfully, it's nowhere near as bad as the Matthew Broderick era.

Then we hit the meat & potatoes of our show:  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past.   After a release like Captain America: The Winter Solder, Sony and Fox have a lot of competition in the Marvel universe.  And we're here to tell you why Spidey is already in need of another reboot, and why we liked Days of Future Past.

But that's not all!  Parris actually managed to watch the entirety of GI Joe: Retaliation.  We can only assume that some kind of hypnosis was in effect because WOW... that movie is a train wreck.  And speaking of train wrecks, Transformers 4 is looking like it's going to live up to the standards of Transformers 3! Which is to say, the trailers look terrible.  I mean really, Optimus Prime riding Grimlock?  Yeesh.

Lastly, we wrap up with some talk on TV's worst year in a long time, and a look back at Mad Men.  

And if you're waiting for a return to "Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen", listen in at the end!  We announce the movie selection for our next episode.

Captain Winter: The American Soldier

We interrupt the six month gap in our recording schedule to bring you this EMERGENCY podcast.  

We hadn't planned to record another episode this soon. But a funny thing happened... Captain America: The Winter Solder hit theaters last week. 

And when the movie finished, and the two of us walked out of the theater, we agreed...  this couldn't wait.  We HAD to talk about Captain America, right away.  No delays. 

If The Winter Soldier has a single message to deliver to its viewers, it's that Marvel isn't playing around in Phase 2.  They're here to deliver.  And it's so serious, so wonderfully delivered, that the next hour of Remember When is exclusively dedicated to the epic proportions of The Winter Solider. 

We don't even tangent outside of the Marvel universe (much).  And we spoil pretty much all of the Marvel movies to date.  So if you haven't seen The Winter Soldier yet, do yourself a favor and leave this episode alone until you do.  You'll be glad you waited.  

Our show exists because of YOU, our listeners!  Your positive comments, encouraging feedback on our Facebook page, and emails asking if we're dead are what help keep the show going.  If you like Remember When, PLEASE let us know at one of the following outlets!

Days of Matrix Past

The bi-annual release of Remember When is finally available!  

We don't waste any time getting started with this show, and jump right into the good stuff!  Our Robocop discussion is ALMOST IMMEDIATELY shanghai'ed by a tangent into the first teaser for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and our discussion on it.

Then we jump back and look at House of Cards (with a TON of spoilers).  How did the end of Season 2 fare, and what are our fears moving into a third season after this most recent story arc?  We also play the "I need an adult" card as we chat about the intense, shocking events in Chapter 24.

Jay surprises everyone with a chat about the first two seasons of Archer, and some Game of Thrones talk.  YES WE TALK GAME OF THRONES (but not as deep as you might like)

Then we talk about the Marvel multi-verse, and our thoughts on the upcoming launches of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as well as conversations about the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer.  With three separate studios vying for their own claim in the Marvel world, can reboots be far behind?

 

Speaking of reboots, how about that news on the possible Matrix reboot?  Is it time for us to look at that as a viable option?

And Jay, bless his heart, confesses that Parris was right about one of the recent Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen.

There are tangents, tangents galore here.  How many tangents?  There are so many that we can't even time stamp things.  It's ridiculous.  Bring a neck brace before listening to the show!
