  • Episode 124 – All the Super-Hero Movies

    2986944-8705912624-28542We were still at Omegacon when we sat down to take a look at the slate of super-hero movies that have been announced recently.  Obviously the Marvel and DC films take the front seat but we don’t forget about Fox and Sony.  It is way too early to know how good any of these movies will be but that doesn’t stop us from passing judgement anyway.  We also spend a few minutes talking about the Marvel movie that isn’t a Marvel movie -Big Hero Six.

  • Episode 121 – Edge of Tomorrow

    edge-of-tomorrow-7This week, we talk about one of the more overlooked sci-fi films of 2014, Edge of Tomorrow or, as it has been re-named for home release, Live Die Repeat.  As is the case with most of our in-depth movie conversations, you can bet there will be a lot of spoilers. In fact, we discuss the ending of the film about five minutes into the podcast.   It probably isn’t the best geek film of the year but it was a very pleasant surprise and we all enjoyed it.  We also read five answers from Boulder!

  • Episode 119 – Geeky Media Round Up

    edge-of-tomorrow-7This week, we gathered in the basement studio to talk about geeky media we plan to consume over the next month or so.  There are video releases, movies, tabletop and video games, television shows, and even one book!  We may not have managed to touch on everything but we get pretty solid coverage on most topics.  If we missed something, we hope you will enlighten us in the comments!

  • Episode 111 – Guardians of the Galaxy

    landscape_xlargeThis week we unleash our geek love for Guardians of the Galaxy, which is still in theaters waging battle with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  And by “waging battle,” we mean “kicking the butt of.”   We talk a bit about the source material and about what we all think work about the movie.  Then we get into the larger picture of Marvel movies.  Also, there are a lot of spoilers.  If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy, you may want to skip this episode and come back later.  At the end of the episode, we read off five answers from Australia!

  • Episode 83 – Life of Pi

    This week, we decided to do an in-depth movie episode.  It’s been a while since we dug in and looked at a film’s religious themes.  Too bad Molly and Nick hated this one so much!  Life of Pi begins by telling you that it is going to tell you a story that will make you believe in god.  Challenge accepted!  Like the movie or hate it, we all agree that tigers are awesome.


  • Episode 57 – This is the End

    We haven’t done an in-depth movie episode for a while but all found we had strong feelings about This is the End so why not do a podcast about it?  If you missed the film in theatres, we should warn you that there are spoilers a-plenty in this episode.  From beginning to end. Spoilers spoilers spoilers.  There’s only one thing that we don’t spoil but by mentioning that we aren’t going to spoil it, we kind of spoil it.  Once we get done spoiling the film, we read five answers from our lisener Graham Leathers!

     


  • Episode 41 – Proofreading Boners

    It has been a while since the three of us have explored our geeky boners!  Molly gets excited about proofreading in ways that will make no sense to people who don’t care about grammar.  Nick runs through a large number of movies that he is looking forward to this year.  Tim talks about all the tabletop games he’s been playing lately, including games produced by Molly’s company and Lords of Waterdeep, which was mentioned by Brienne Bilyeu back in Episode 24.  Also, For the first time in a while, a listener (Josh Helton) gets a crack at our five questions.

  • Episode 35 – Religulous

    Inspired by our talk about asshole atheists, we decided to watch Bill Maher’s film Religulous.  Maher himself is frequently referred to as an asshole atheist and he certainly does his best to rile up several believers throughout the movie.  We’d all seen the movie before but it elicited strong reactions and got us to think about what made us decide to be “out” as atheists.  Molly, especially, has a lot of thoughts on the film.  Like, three pages of thoughts.  Then we get five answers from the UK!

  • Episode 29 – Left Behind

    This week, we delve headfirst into another in-depth movie episode.  Instead of a movie we like, though, this is the absolutely horrible fundamentalist Christian screed, Left Behind.  Molly and Nick gave the movie to Tim as a gag gift and so, to punish them, we all sat down together to watch the thing.  Friends, it is not a good movie.  When we say we suffered for you on this one, you can trust us – we suffered. This podcast is as close as you should ever get to the movie.  So please, enjoy!  (P.S: We also read Marc Baker’s answers to our five questions)

  • Episode 26 – Twenty Thirteen

    Happy New Year!  Welcome to an exciting new year of Geeks Without God and – you know – other stuff.  This episode marks our six month aniverssary and we take some time to look back at 2012 and talk about some things we are looking forward to in 2013.  Molly celebrates the end of the “Year of Molly” by issuing an edict on how we are to refer to the upcoming year (hint: it is not “the Year of Nick”).  We hardly talk about atheism at all. Sorry about that.  We promise we’ll talk about the lack of god next time!
