TGB Episode 165: Spinning Off New Stories (Guest: Allison Loring)

August 1, 2013

The Golden Briefcase - Wolverine

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim (sans Jeremy) is joined by FilmSchoolReject's own Allison Loring to go over their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for Keanu Reeve's newest films 47 Ronin and Man of Tai Chi and more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on movie spin-offs in honor of The Wolverine now playing in theaters. The two go over some of the best and worst examples of this film/TV sub-genre and talk about reasoning for their existence and impact. They also go over some potential spin-offs that have not yet been explored by Hollywood. 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.

Huh? You kind of dig Daredevil yet The Chronicles of Riddick and Freddy Vs Jason are terrible? The Daredevil Directors Cut is solid, yet still flawed. The Chronicles of Riddick Director's Cut is very solid as well, but not perfect. BOTH DC's are BIG improvements over the theatrical cuts. Freddy vs Jason is good B-movie fun, as are the Alien vs Predator films. It's "something VERSUS something"...and you know what you are in store for.
