Weekend Randomness: The Decoy Bride

While surfing the net this morning I saw an ad with the above image promoting the DVD of the movie The Decoy Bride.

Recently Streamed: Conan O'Brien Can't Stop

Image
It was either 7th or 8th grade when I first tuned in to Late Night with Conan O'Brien. I don't remember why I was up so late, but I do remember laughing so hard I couldn't go to sleep. I was instantly a die hard fan, videotaping every comedy segment, tons of band performances, and choice interviews.

Image
Prepare yourself for the pilot episode of Filmcast Without a Cause! In this episode we'll run you down on what to expect, give our thoughts on Kick-Ass 2 starting to percolate, our casting suggestions for Daredevil 2, and the possibility social media can predict box office success. For our feature review we break down Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Our second act includes DVD reviews, general nerdery, a quick overview of a local film festival and finally we'll wrap it up.

As this is the pilot, we are learning as we go. There are some audio issues but we have already devised the fix for next episode, so have no fear! We have some idea what we're doing. Enjoy the show and make sure to leave us some comments/feedback so we can make this puppy sparkle.
