Film Actually Ep020 (112) – Time and Place

Hosts: David McVay & Josh Philpott

Welcome to the Film Actually podcast, your weekly dose of movie geek. Film Actually is the official movie podcast of geekactually.com.

This week David McVay and Josh Philpott are joined by Celine Roberts to review ‘MegaMind’ and give our summary of the first season of ‘The Walking Dead’. We also have a couple of new trailers and a brand new Lists of Five – Five Films That Could Never Be Remade. So sit back, grab a nice cup of something because this is a long one. Enjoy.

*Update 31/07/2012 – Film Actually was a split off from the main Geek Actually show and originally maintained numbering continuity with that show. That logic no longer works as the shows have become two unique entities, so we have gone back and re-numbered the Film Actually shows to reflect their true episode number. This show is now officially episode 20 but when you listen to the show you will hear it referred to as episode 112, this is why. Sorry about any confusion or inconvenience.

Film Actually is recorded live every Saturday. Go to geekactually.com/live for the schedule and to watch it

Your show notes:

Feature Film Review

‘MegaMind 3D’ directed by Tom McGrath and written by Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. It stars the voice talent of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, David Cross, Ben Stiller and J.K. Simmons.

After super-villain Megamind kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man, he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan, who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life. Written by IMDb Editors

Our Verdict: A really well done and funny movie and well worth the 3D prices. Go see it now even if you don’t have kids.
