This is the big one. It’s been a while coming but here we are. The Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-Up arrives at arguably the most iconic Batman movie of them all, Chris Nolan’s epic The Dark Knight. Batfan Jon Seymour once again joins ever present hosts Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine and myself, RJ Bayley, for a very long, very nerdy, very passionate chat about the second installment of the Dark Knight Trilogy. We cover the what was, what is, what may be and what might have been of this truly seminal superhero saga. This is fully indulgent Bat fandom, so tuck in.

What on earth lead to Batman striking this pose exactly?

The world’s greatest prank.

This is Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine’s and my podcast on the 1997 disaster that we all were sadly affected by. A lot of good brain cells died watching the film that brought you this podcast.

If you support the men giving their time to secure you this podcast please consider giving them a 5 star review on iTunes or buying something through their Amazon links. If not, how about a good review on Stitcher?

In this episode we look at which elements of theses neon hell don’t follow logic, and which just defy comprehension. We look at Poison Ivy’s plant-hybrid life and compare it to our theories on Superman in a previous podcast, the baffling lack of sense when it comes to ‘ice’ puns, Alfred’s complete dismissal of  Batman’s life, the fact that mirrors now apparently reflect all temperatures,  the idea that George Clooney plays Batman as a kind simpleton, Robin’s petulance and the massive issue of Batgirl’s weight.

If you want to save yourself some time, don’t read any further, just go out and buy this game. If you don’t have a console that can run it, this is all the reason you need to go and get one.

If you’ve been living in a bunker for the last year you might not be up to speed with the situation. 73 years ago, Batman, the world’s greatest detective was unleashed upon the world in Detective Comics and since then the Dark Knight has been adapted into every type of media imaginable. (more…)

leprechaun-back-2-tha-hood-2003-2-1

Well here it is, Goats In The Machine’s long-in-the-coming look at the Leprechaun sequels, namely Leprechaun 2, Leprechaun 3, Leprechaun 4: In SpaceLeprechaun 5: In the Hood and Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood.

In the name of continuity, and frankly to make the whole experience less painful, Louise Boyd and I are compelled to follow the format of our original Leprechaun episode; namely drinking profusely throughout the the show. Before long we’re hurtling down a whisky greased and  beer lubricated chute towards oblivion, taking pot-shots at all installments of arguably the worst long-running horror franchise.

For this episode the Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-Up slips down the same drain Superman III went down and attempts to find some good bits lodged in the superheroic shambles.

On this episode our discussion of Superman III leads us to talk about wolf-poo coffee, the completely aimless, shambolic nature of the plot, the achievements of Richard Pryor in the field of drug taking and the Salkinds punitive measures against Margot Kidder.

Not enough? OK, how about discussion that takes in obvious early 80s boobjobs, Evil Superman‘s paucity of ambition, an adult revelation of what the junkyard sequence is, Lester’s comedy at the expense of the blind and the awkward interrogation of Niall over which Superman love interest he’d rather “knob”?

Fight + rain = more epic

In this fourth and final installment of The Matrix Re-evaluated RJ Bayley and Louise Boyd look back at The Matrix Revolutions.

We discuss whether we thought the final film managed to bail out the sinking ship of the franchise or if it just put more holes in its hull.

In the age of cloud computing, Google Glass, double time-reversal symmetry, the Higgs boson and modems, iTunes seems incredibly old hat as using the term old hat, doesn’t it? Search for the show you want, wait for it to download, drag it over to your iPod or other generic MP3 playa, then carry that file around with you on that iPod or other generic playa, only for it to sit there, taking up room on your device or in your pocket until you remove it and replace it with something else you want to listen when you can return to your desk to physically connect it to your laptop.

Its amazing what seemed so cutting edge not that long ago now appears impossibly dated. But then I have just been watching The Matrix.

What if I told you there was a an application, an “app” if you will, that lets you listen to your favourite internet radio, webcasts, podcasts and whatever-you-want-to-call-’ems from anywhere in the world by simply beaming them (yes, like in actual Star Trek) directly to your phone or PC? You don’t need to download it, transfer it, curse it when it skips and you can’t fix it until you go home again, or remove it. It goes onto your device, into your ears and leaves as soon as you don’t need it anymore like a ninja fart in a hurricane.

Well friends, that application (“app”) has a name. and that name is Stitcher.

Yes, Goats In The Machine is now on the best webcast platform there is. Without wanting to sound like a salesman, I have absolutely loved Stitcher for a long time and really believe its going to be bigger to iTunes; so I’m very, very pleased to be on it.

Goats In The Machine on Stitcher

You can access our show (and discover many other awesome ones like it, thanks to the brilliant ‘discover’ feature) on your desktop and on the go with the the Stitcher app.

Happy...VE Day!

Happy…VE Day!

Its that event that the whole year builds around, celebrated far and wide by countless families across the world, that excites little boys and girls more than any other night of the year. Its VE Day! To shamelessly cash in on the massive surge of web traffic that the date always generates at that time, Goats In The Machine has decided to cash in with a VE Day episode on Dead Snow.

In our feature length commentary of the cult Nazi zombie film we look at what innovations Tommy Wirkola has brought to the idea of the zombie, just how much of the beasts in Dead Snow is zombie and how much is Nazi, and why snow is such a good background to stage copious amounts of blood on.

But crucially we ask a question that has plagued mankind of eons. What would you rather cut off with a chainsaw; your arm or your penis? (more…)
