The Thing vs Starman: John Carpenter Retrospective

John Carpenter over decades has been commonly referred to as a master of the cinematic horror action genre. Yet, In fact, filmmakers such as James Cameron, Quentin Tarantino, Guillermo del Toro to name a few represent a generation who have been influenced by Carpenter’s eclectic style and in some case armed only with minimal equipment and vision for storytelling. 

TBC_afp deep dives into two of Carpenter’s most iconic Sci-Fi pieces and in some respects, underrated works: The Thing (1982) and Starman (1984). 

Sit back with some oatmeal and pie and enjoy!

Doctor Who Special

Originally recorded on December of 2018, TBC_afp and invited Guests got together for discussion about a special fanboy topic spanning close to 60 decades. As the subject has been referred to as “The Oncoming Storm”,  “The Bringer of Darkness” or “Last of the Time Lords”,  this Hero is usually (and humbly) referred to as The Doctor. So, if you’ve been living under a rock either of recent or for the past 56 years still asking “Doctor Who?”, whether you’re a diehard Whovian or just a fair weather fan, then prepare some tea (with perhaps some fish fingers and gravy, biscuits even) as we traverse through Time and Space celebrating The Doctor of BBC’s Doctor Who.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (Spoiler Review)

As they say in Lego Bricksburg, “Everything Is Awesome” especially when it’s Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse, Sony’s runaway animated hit originally conceived by LEGO The Movie’s Phil Lord and Christopher Miller based on Marvel’s friendly neighborhood flagship web head. 

We at TBC_afp never fully considered reviewing this spectacle of a film fully casted with big names such as Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali and Nick Cage if not for the word of buzz. But we did it! So now, swing back into podcast mode and enjoy!

Aquaman (Spoiler Review)

What do you get when you combine Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Splash together ? Hopefully not just an epic food fight at Red Lobster, of course. Nevertheless, The TBC Fanboy Heroes Three (trademark pending) deep dive into  DC Cinematic Universe’s latest continuing underwater saga and closing in on $1 billion box office hit, AQUAMAN.

Batman: Road To Justice Part 4

Riddle me this? What do Morgan Freeman from Lean on Me, Mr. Bates from Downton Abbey and almost eight decades of fictional history have in common? Well, the answer is “Batman”, of course, but that doesn’t mean you ought to be shoving Spaghetti into any (“Bat”) Computer in the name of detective work. 

Join TBC a fanboy podcast & friends for an in-depth round table Bat-discussion exploring the heroics, romanticism & complex character profile of DC Comics’ flagship property. 

What will be revealed? That Batman really does sit home to wash his tights? The truth behind Schumacher’s “nipplegate”? Or that Calendar Man will get his own full featured film? Sit tight, get comfortable with some Bat-milk and cookies (yes, the same ones from Scooby Doo) and tune in for a great Bat-Time.

Star Wars: TLJ Guest Panel Discussion

 Since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the internet has turned into a battlefield pitting fanboys against one another. 

 Some are praising Rian Johnson’s directorial installment chronicling the continuing adventures of Rey, Finn & Poe and the return of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, while others are flat out condemning TJL for ruining their childhood.

 TBC a fanboy podcast, in an effort to follow up on their spoiler review show, have gathered a cast of special guests for their fanboy/fan girl input...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Spoiler) Review

Think you’ve heard all that’s needed to be said about the sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens appropriately titled The Last Jedi? In this new installment, we finally got to hear Luke Skywalker speak after 3 decades of absence from the fanboy consciousness. We also pick up where we left off with our newly embraced trinity: Rey, Finn, Poe as well as with the abhorred First Order bunch led by Kylo Ren. Well, this is not going to go the way you think as the intrepid crew of TBC (a fanboy podcast) attempt to angle the deflector, punch the hyperdrive and be the spark that’ll light the fire perhaps only to exchange some finger lickin’ porg rotisserie recipes in the process.

Justice League (Spoiler) Review

Gathered together from remote corners of the world are some of the most passionate individuals of all time: TBC (a fanboy podcast)! Dedicated to a single objective- releasing edgy but not offensive apolitical media infotainment content hopefully, toward scoring some lucrative corporation sponsorship, enough to at least break even. But what do The TBCers Three think of the highly anticipated Justice League movie? Will they cry outrage at Henry Cavill’s #MUSTACHEGATE ? Does Zack Synder take a page from Sir Michael Caine and bury another Batman? (Steve Coogan’s The Trip. Look it up….) Are there actual Apache Chief, Black Vulcan, El Dorado & Samurai Easter Eggs that we missed in the movie?

The Flash: Road to Justice Part 2

Faster than a Kyptonian…. Less powerful than a Gorilla…. Able to scale up building walls without effort at super speeds. It’s The Flash aka The Scarlett Speedster aka Barry Allen or Wally West or Jay Garrick and the Boys of TBC get into one of the most popular DC icons of all times. 

Also in continuation, we pick up where our fellow Super Friends: Apache Chief, Black Vulcan, El Dorado & Samurai, left off along the Road to Justice (League Movie Premiere).

Wonder Woman Film Review: Road To Justice Part 1

Created in the 40’s, Wonder Woman has evolved over the ages brandishing strength, beauty and feminism to many but not without controversy contained in the course of her history. DC’s archetype and surely GOAT female superhero has graced fans through the ages in comics, toys, TV, animation and finally a solo feature film directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster) with Gal Gadot (BvS, Fast & Furious) as Diana, Princess of Themyscira.

The crew of To Be Continued a fanboy podcast offer their Wonder Woman film review in this first installment of ROAD TO JUSTICE, inching its way closer to Warner Bros.' ambitious Justice League.

"All the world's waiting for you and the power you possess… Change their minds, and change the world."
