Aisle of the Damned: 08/18/17- The Back to Skull Special

Art Repurposed for a Reason

Kent and Bryan are ready for fall, but is your local multiplex? The Damned boys discuss what we have to look forward to in the next few months with their annual Back to Skull Fall Preview and there are a few places on the calendar which feel like a wasteland.

They also take a look at some Kevin Smith news straight from Boston ComicCon, discuss some big news from Movie Pass and talk some Bond.

More like Dork Tower, amIright?

Bryan and Kent saw the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower and both were confused by the experience, though not as much by the film. Kent, meanwhile, has seen the artiest of arthouse fare, A Ghost Story. Does the experience haunt him?

Meanwhile, the boys take advantage of a slow news week to review the Spider-Man that could have been, had Sony not handed him over to Marvel, and he takes a severe turn towards the Herbert West.

Tick Tick Boom

It’s one of the biggest films of the year (literally) as Kent and Bryan take a look at Christopher Nolan’s 70mm war film, Dunkirk. They also find Germans in the 80s set spy thriller, Atomic Blonde. Does Charlize Theron provide enough heat to melt the Cold War? Bryan, meanwhile, finally got to see Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Does he agree with Kent’s take, or is it Fifth Elementary, my dear Watson? Kent, meanwhile, gives us his takes on indie romantic comedy wundkerkind, The Big Sick.

Additionally, the Damned boys talk about some news that should make Batffleck fans stop worrying.

Monkeying Around

Get yer Kong on with the Damned boys as Kent and Bryan wage War for the Planet of the Apes. How does the end of what is kind of a trilogy in an eight (or is it nine?) movie series fare? And how far did Bryan have to go to see it? Plus, Kent takes a quick look at Sophia Coppola’s new film, The Beguiled.

In addition, we have some silly news that we make fun of and a buttload of trailers for everything from The Disaster Artist to Goon: Last of the Enforcers!

Aisle of the Damned: 07/07/17- Boss Baby Driver’s Day Out

Simon and Garfunkel, not KISS

Baby Driver, auteur Edgar Wright’s latest lean, mean, high-octane comedic thriller, is finally here, and boy, does it live up to the promise of the Cornetto trilogy. Let us tell you why.

Plus, we have a look at Despicable Me 3! After suffering overload from the Minions movie, does it still have the same punch?

Meanwhile, we have the usual news and a slew of trailers to look at, including a new Jumanji and, yes, My Little Pony: The Movie.

That Deadpool short film before Logan?

What’s being called a “teaser” for Deadpool 2 (really more of a short film called “No Good Deed”) has been showing up before Logan in several theaters, like a cartoon before the more serious main feature. It was in Kent’s, but not in Bryan’s, for some reason.

Now it’s online. But not… What do I mean? Well, the version online, released from Ryan Reynold’s Youtube page, differs significantly from the theatrical version many people saw on Friday night.

 

Some of the differences?

1.) The song Wade is listening to in the theatrical version is “Angel of the Morning,” a direct nod to the film.

2.) More musical changes: The Superman theme goes on longer in the theatrical.

3.) The theatrical edit cuts the call Wade makes in the booth and the subsequent joke about calling his costumer.

4.) Added Stan Lee cameo online.

5.) The Hugh Jackman Australian bits at the end are added online.

I’m sure there are more changes, but those are the obvious ones off the top of my head. Let’s home more theaters realize that it is supposed to be added to the start of the show, so more people can see that cut. There have been some bootlegs of it cropping up online, but as the official release came about, they’ve largely disappeared and not replaced, especially as Fox has them removed.
