How much would you weigh on the moon? Which Indiana Jones movie made the most money? How do you pronounce AT-AT? What does the license plate on Doc Brown’s DeLorean say?
If you can answer these questions, we want to enlist YOU in the Atomic Trivia War 9000, the podcast quiz show with geek cred. The war isn’t waged with bullets and tanks, but with facts and figures, pop culture references, and a big dose of nerdiness.
Join Jason, Omar, Rochelle, and Kevin as they do battle for points and honor. This isn’t a mild seismic activity quiz challenge. This is the Atomic Trivia War 9000!
It's an ATW9K Movie Night! No, it's actually our long-awaited LISTENER QUESTIONS show, with trivia generated by YOU for US! Our contestants handle it all, from the small screen to large screen, from history to pop culture to general know-it-or-maybe-not. FYI, we almost lost this episode but rescued it from a backup track, which explains why Jason's mic is weird. Sorry. And sorry for the show.
Here's the final swash in the buckle we call MUSKETEER MONTH -- the Disney version of The Three Musketeers, starring Jack Bauer, Topper Harley, Robin, Dr. Daniel Charles, Hexxus, Lana, and Guy of Gisborne. Cue the music, Bryan Adams.
Pouring a fifth out to all my homies in Westchester, RIP to Tupac, Biggy, the Wolverizzine, Professor X Gon Give It to Ya, fo rizzle. We review LOGAN, because we hurt ourselves today to see if we still feel. Special guest Scott Johnson.
What if we shoved all the actual Musketeers into the background and focused instead on the French martial art of rapier-fu? The result would be the 2001 film The Musketeer, which has sword fighting on top of wine casks, sword fighting on top of a racing coach, and sword fighting on top of ladders (in a room with a suspicious number of ladders). It's MUSKETEER MONTH PART 2!
Ah, yes -- the adaptation of a favorite 17th century French political adventure novel, in which kung-fu fighting swordsmen confront a lady ninja and have airship battles. Yep. Sounds like Alexandre Dumas (in 3D).
They both came out this weekend, but we couldn't have chosen two movies on further ends of the spectrum to review than LEGO BATMAN and JOHN WICK 2. One is full of tummy tum tum wholesome laughs and GOB Bluth's voice. The other is a murder-fest spanning from Italy to New York.
Was Flight of the Navigator before or after Big Trouble in Little China? Did Meet Joe Black come before or after The Matrix? Test your skills in the Movie Time Machine, then beat our contestants in a numbers game! Send your trivia (one question at a time, please, for organization reasons) to email@example.com to have them included on a future LISTENER QUESTIONS show! Also, Omar and Kevin are bad and should feel bad for failing to do their homework this week. SIGH
We check in with Ro for her semi-annual PAX report, put the contestants to the quiz, and talk about the geeky stuff in our lives!
When special guest Jeff Ferry comes along, he and the gang (minus Ro) handle all kinds of trivia, from comic books to movies to gasp sports-ing! Catch Jeff on his own podcast, The Burbs Minute, which can be found on iTunes.
Are there cannibals living next door? Podcaster extraordinaire Richard Smith joins us to explore the basement of his favorite movie -- The 'Burbs, starring a young, neurotic Tom Hanks! This one reveals some surprising defectors in the ranks as Jason and Rich try to preach the gospel of suburban black comedy while pealing back the layers of social commentary. RIP PRINCESS LEIA, WE MISS YOU.
