On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by Rudie Obias of The AuteurCast to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for Sundance hit The Kings of Summer and Vin Diesel's sci-fi sequel Riddick and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on the high octane, adrenaline-fueled Fast and the Furious film franchise, in honor of Fast & Furious 6 hitting theaters this weekend. The guys go over the action-packed crowd favorite franchise in detail including its successes and failures, big box office earnings and plenty more. Listen in!
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records.

I actually enjoyed 'Dark Fury'. It's a cut above a lot of those 'animated tie-ins' in that it uses the cast of the films for the voices of the characters, and it's a stylistic anime as opposed to a traditional western animation. It actually does serve as an interesting story-bridge, moving from the smaller 'Pitch Black' to a larger world. It nicely plants seeds for the character progression that the Chronicles of Riddick features. I would gladly watch an anime mini-series about Riddick. Diesel brings the character to life in a great way. If they adapted one(or both) of the prequel video games into anime series...that would be utterly fantastic. Also, while The Chronicles of Riddick isn't as good as Pitch Black, it was still a very solid sci-fi film. It did go a bit too big though. That being said, the Director's Cut of the film is QUITE an improvement. The film's plot and characters are more fleshed out, and the violence/intensity is on an R-rated level. That being said, I'm also very glad to even be getting another sequel, let alone one that is more in the style of the original film.
