The Dark Web Podcast 36 Marvel Movies every single one

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-k7m3b-962d43

This is it a return to form. I have two big topics and a very special guest interview this week.

First up I finally dig in and discuss my thoughts on each and every single one of the Marvel movies I have seen and brush over the handful I haven’t seen.

I am not just discussing the Marvel Studios/Disney produced MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe (films) no sir you’re going to get more than that out of me. This episode I start at the begining with the first X-Men film and go through each and ever single Marvel movie I have seen with brief reasons on why I haven’t seen the ones I haven’t.

I explain why I didn’t start with Blade, mostly for 2 reasons 1, I have never seen any of them and 2, they’re more like vampire movies. (also I tend to skip the lesser known movies and Blade was fairly unknown at that time)

After I go through all of them I get into a deep look at my relationship with the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise and why those movies are so important to me.

Marvel movies I discuss (those featuring Marvel characters)

Blade Trilogy (verdict, never seen them burned on on Buffy at the time)

X-Men franchise (X-Men, X2, The Last Stand, First Class, Apocalypse, Days of Future Past)

Fantastic Four movies (original and Silver Surver, never seen the remake not interested)

Spider-Man trilogy (big fan defend each movie with most criticism thrown at 3)

Daredevil/Elekctra (I loved one hated the other)

Hulk/Incredible Hulk (seen one but not the other)

Punisher duo (possibly controversial opinion)

Ghost Rider movies (not a fan, not seen no interest)

Wolverine movies (seen 2 of the three, find out which ones and which one I despise the most)

Deadpool (haven’t seen, not because of lack of interest just not gotten around to it yet)

Iron Man Trilogy (I liked one, disliked one, thought one was a complete waste of time/money)

Captain America (I’m going to stir the fanboys but I really dislike this character so much)

Thor (Seen 2 of the three liked one disliked one no interest in the other one)

Blackpanther (no interest in seeing this read the graphic novel not a fan)

Ant Man films (no interest in seeing either of these don’t care for third tier characters)

Avengers (Loved the two our of three I have seen still waiting to see the 3rd)

Guardians of the Galaxy (loved these movies almost as much maybe more than recent Star Wars movies)

Amazing Spiderman/Homecomng (I’ve seen 4 of the 7 Spider-Man films, explain why I’ve had enough)

_____

A Nightmare on Elm Street

It all started at a very young age. As a Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast I watched my first D&D fantasy inspired quest on film in the form of the Dream Warrios. This fantasy/horror movie about a group of teenagers fighting a powerful monster in a fantasy world using their super powers (Elfen Mage, Barbarian Fighter, Rogue Punk Rocker, acrobatic Psychic , sage-like mentor, muted monk, Bard and the craftsman) all trapped in the dungeon hoping to survive their life or death quest.

I then continue my show with a pre-recorded interview I did a few weeks ago with a film maker named Kyle Hester https://twitter.com/KyleDHester who discusses his new project, Preacher Six.

 

I end the show with a Week 4 recap/summary of the events on Big Brother 20. Spoilers, the hippie got sent packing.

 

This was a little longer than a typical episode. I hope this makes up for cancelling the Daily Show. Thanks for listening, please subscribe and I will be back next week.

The Dark Web Daily Show- Wednesday July 4, 2018 INDEPENDENCE DAY

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-jbvpe-948c34

Enjoy, patriots. In this episode I return to a more traditional format. I am going to shorten the weekday episodes to around 45 minutes and give up on the boring FCC bullshit. I’m doing a podcast not a radio show so fuck it right?

Music topic is the band U2. I talk about how I discovered their music and what it means to me. Since it’s Independence Day I talked about a patriotic movie I remebered going to the theater with my parents to see. Michael Bay’s WWII blockbuster Pearl Harbor. The video game memories topic was Contra for the N.E.S. (En Ee Es not nes) I also rant about the younguns on the internet who called it the ness. I hate that it sounds so disgusting in my throat.

I also ditch the news format and get back to a strictly opinionated show. I do plan on tackling some political topics now that I am unchained. The political landscape in the U.S. is unhinged so I might as well take the muzzle off and join the crowd. Expect more angry rants than ever before. The show is called The Dark Web afterall, expect a seedier show from now on. Thanks for listening and those who are easiliy offended please fuck off and listen to NPR.

Best 80’s Trucker movie?

Here is the contest. Which of the following three 80’s films represent the truck driver spirit best? The films are Over the Top starring Sylvester Stallone, Big Trouble in Little China starring Kurt Russell, and Maximum Overdrive starring Emilio Estevez.

Each of these three films presents a different aspect of the truck driver world. Big Trouble focuses on a loner truck driver making his way in the world. Maximum Overdrive centers on a group of survivors at a truck stop being attacked by possessed trucks. The last film, Over the Top, digs into some of the sub culture of the trucker lifestyle.

The great American road trip has been a staple in American culture ever since the beginning of time for this young nation of diverse people. Even before there were automobiles there was the famous wagon trains exploring the American frontier of years past. Also there are the lone riding cowboys who hit the dusty trails of the American wild west. All of these people have one thing in common, leaving their world behind to seek adventure on the open road.

The road trip movie is one of the most iconic sub-genres of the adventure film in American cinema, birthing such classics as Easy Rider, The Blues Brothers, Dumb & Dumber and Tommy Boy.

The truck driver culture, or truck stop culture, of the road trip is a great staple.

This is a look at three feature films each presenting a different aspect of the trucking/trucker culture. As someone who has several family members who either are, or were at one time, truckers or aspired to be truckers, this topic is one I have been holding onto for a while.

It’s going to be written in four parts. Following the reviewing of each movie with the focus on how well does it capture the trucker spirit, then a final review pulling the information from each film onto a final article deciding which of the three is the best trucker film.

This is going to be an ongoing series. It will require the re-watching and taking of notes for each film. Sit back and enjoy the sure to be bumpy ride.

The Dark Web Daily Show- Tuesday June 26 talking Big Brother, TMNT, Nirvana, SCOTUS and more!

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ynzxa-940577

Have you ever been down to the dark web?

Welcome to a brand new episode of The Dark Web Daily Show featuring your host, The Rat. Today’s exciting episode opens with a all-new theme song, performed by non other than THE RAT himself. This is the first new recording featuring vocals since 2014.

Today’s episode centers on heading down memory lane to discuss my discovery of the famous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I tell the story how I first discovered the arcade game. For the longest time I thought the video game came first so I always thought of it all as a video game poperty not a cartoon or comic book based thing.

Headlines I mentioned Big Brother CBS’s famed reality/game show starts a new summer season tomorrow night. I intend to hit up the DVR and will be talking about the show as it unfolds. It’s only one of three reality shows I watch. The other two are Shark Tank and Pawn Stars. I also mentioned the sad news related to that History Channel favorite towards the end of the show.

SCOTUS also ruled the Presidet Trump travel ban is constitional so expect outrage over that from both sides. What a time we live in.

Enjoy the show. Feel free to leave a comment down below.
