This week on The Collision, we talk about Transcendence and how it’s bad.  Really, really bad.  This episode contains spoilers about Transcendence because we had to start going into specifics about all the ways it fails, and how it could have been a much better movie.  We also discuss technophobia in movies and popular depictions of science as a negative force.  As always, we finish up with our recommendations.

This week on The Collision, we talk about the changing face of late night television.  Leading off with a discussion about Stephen Colbert replacing David Letterman as a host of The Late Show, we then continue to look at how late night has changed over the decades, turned into “morning after” viewing with clips and sketches geared towards clicks on the internet, the attitude and personality of late night hosts, and more.  As always, we finish up with our recommendations.  Also, I apologize for some of the sniffling you’ll hear during this episode.  I suffer from spring allergies.

THE COLLISION: Episode 75 – Philip Seymour Hoffman

by     Posted 80 days ago

collision-podcast-slice

This week on The Collision, we talk about the career of Philip Seymour Hoffman.  A couple hours before we were set to record, we learned about the great actor’s death, and so instead of talk about last week’s news items regarding Super Bowl ads and Batman/Superman, we wanted to celebrate Hoffman’s work.  During out conversation, we look over his diverse filmography, what specifically made him such a gifted actor, and how he left a distinct mark on all of his movies.  As for our recommendations, we point out two of his performances that may have been lost in the shuffle of a fantastic, yet all-too-brief career.

by     Posted 121 days ago

This week on The Collision, we discuss Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which leads us to talking about the scourge of 24-hour news networks, the prevalence of infotainment, the double-edged sword the Internet plays in the dissemination of information, and the public’s culpability in these results.  It’s surprisingly substantive conversation resulting from a movie where the protagonist bottle-feeds a shark.  And as always, we finish up with our recommendations.
