THE COLLISION: Episode 96 – Looking Back and Looking Ahead for 2014

     July 6, 2014


This week on The Collision, we take advantage of being at the midway point in 2014, and take a look back at the year’s hits and misses thus far, and then look ahead at what’s to come.  Since there are a lot of films to cover, this a special, extended edition that runs about 90 minutes.  As always, we finish up with our recommendations.

    Good podcast Matt and Adam, I too feel as if this year has had some surprisingly good movies. I think the way movies have been distributed as been good too, not too many similar movies opening on he same weekend. So far my favorite film would have to be Edge of Tomorrow, and really looking forward to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Gaurdians, Foxcatcher, and Gone Girl, and maybe Birdman.

    Will try to check out some of the recommendations you guys mentioned.

    I agree with what you guys said about TMNT, its too cheesy for older audiences, but its too dark for children, so in the end no one will like it. However I expect it to be a huge success.

    Also I will say I’m surprised that Matt thought A Million Ways to Die in the West would be sucessful. It looked like an SNL skit that goes on way too long, also people know Seth McFarlene voice, but not him as an actor, his characters are funny, he himself is not.

    Really looking forward to Mockingjay, I havent read the books but I too feel this team is worthy of making something great, my only concern is how much did they have to change due to the tragic loss of Hoffman.

    Hope the rest of the year lives up to the hype. I don’t envy your job at Comic Con, I feel like I’d show up then leave after 15 minutes.

    Great podcast. And I’ve been loving your “Apes” reviews Matt. I’ve been watching all the sequels for the first time as well, and reading your write ups after watching the movies has been great.
