Geek Actually After Show Ep097 – Joaquin Joaquin Joaquin

Hosted by: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Celine Roberts

Welcome to the Geek Actually After Show. This un-stuctured and un-planned podcast is what what you get after we finish recording the two main shows Tech Actually and Film Actually. We basically just leave the mics on and record whatever we feel like talking about. This show gives us a chance to talk about anything that didn’t fit into the format of the main shows.

This week we discuss the new trailer for ‘I’m Still Here’ the weird new documentary about Joaquin Phoenix’s hip hop career. We talk about new images from ‘The Walking Dead’ TV series and casting for the new film version of ‘Y The Last Man’. Because we missed last week, we have a bonus review of the film ‘Salt’ as well.

Some Links of things we discussed:

Feature Film Review

‘Salt’ directed by Phillip Noyce and written by Kurt Wimmer. It stars Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor (pronounced chew-it-tell edge-oh-for), Daniel Olbrychski and August Diehl.

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who is Salt?” – source Sony

Our Verdict: Surprisingly good, Angelina Jolie delivers a powerful multilayered performance. The film is a throw back to great 90’s action thrillers like ‘Hunt for Red October’ or ‘Enemy of the State’.
