ODO 52: March Movie Madness


This week I’m devoting the entire show to the awesome slate of films dropping this month. Between the superhero epic of “Logan” and the batshit crazy “The Belko Experiment” this is shaping up to be the best march movie season ever. Keeping with the movie theme, this week’s Recommended Listening is another Sanspants Radio gem, “Movie Maintenance- Because some movies just need fixing.”

GET OUT- February 24, 2017

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. 


LOGAN- March 3, 2017

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces. 

 KONG: SKULL ISLAND- March 10, 2017

A diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific – as beautiful as it is treacherous – unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST- March 17, 2017


An adaptation of the classic fairy-tale about a monstrous prince and a young woman who fall in love.



The Belko Experiment explores a twisted social experiment, in which a group of 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogata and ordered by an unknown voice on an intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed. 

POWER RANGERS- March 24, 2017


Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late. 



Equal parts fan fiction, review show and armchair producing as we look at Hollywood’s greats and not-so-greats. Join us as we propose a very simple premise; we can do it better. Movie Maintenance – because some films just need fixing.

ODO 39: The Power Is Yours

The Power is Yours

This week I’ve got a lesson in trademark law courtesy of Disney and a movie update including Captain Planet. Plus I share my recent experience in DIY plumbing and the “Jackass of the Week” brings another emergency service worker with job issues.

Movie News

Leonardo DiCaprio to Produce Captain Planet Movie  

Big surprise that the “King of the Militant Hippies,” Leonardo DiCaprio is going to produce a Captain Planet movie. I loved Captain Planet as a kid, but seriously do we need another way for Leo to shove an organically grown, carbon neutral, 100% recyclable tree hugging guilt trip collectively down our throats? I get it, you’re into the green living thing. Don’t fuck up my cartoons. “The power is yours.”


Fox releases first trailer for “Logan”

The final Wolverine film, simply titled “Logan,” got it’s first trailer this week and it is beautiful. The movie will apparently follow along the idea of the “old man Logan”comic arc. Personally I loved the use of the Johnny Cash cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.” This is just a beautiful trailer hands down.


Lucasfilm sues would-be jedis 

So this is a thing. Apparently there have been multiple Jedi Lightsaber training schools in Europe, but now there is finally one in the good old USA. Too bad for the wannabe Jedi, Lucasfilms is suing to shut down the schools since they violate their trademark. Disney paid a lot of money for Star Wars. You can’t expect them to just let you make money from it without permission.

Nintendo Announces the “Switch”

This week Nintendo released a teaser trailer for the new system formerly known as the NX. the new system officially called the “Switch” is part console and part handheld. The entire thing looks amazing if it works as well as described. It’s definitely a game changer just in its ability to span both sides of gaming.


Indiana firefighter charged with arson 

I’m getting really tired of reading about these emergency service people not doing their damn jobs. On the other hand, this guy liked his job so much, he created more work to do. Unfortunately he seemed to miss the part in fireman orientation where they explained that that is a felony.
