Here is the list of current commissioned podcasts we are working on.  We are able to average one a week, so it's fairly easy to estimate when one is coming out.  Traditionally they deploy of a Monday.

    Django, Nice!!
  • edited May 2015
    Second the excitement for Django. The soundtrack is excellent as well. Almost as much care put into it as the film I think. The next three commissions are all very exciting. Will check out the others and probably watch those as well.

    V: miniseries... The old one from the 80's or th more recent 2011ish one?
  • DeeDee Adelaide
    Animal Kingdom! I'll be very interested to hear what you guys think of that one.
  • ArctorArctor The Netherlands
    Looking forward to the Cabin in the Woods one, that film is so much fun.
  • @A_Ron_Hubbard Is The Road Warrior coming after Cabin in the Woods?
  • A_Ron_HubbardA_Ron_Hubbard Cincinnati, OH
    The V miniseries is the 80's classic.

    @AntManBee, PM me.  I'll need to know if you ordered it through subbable or the cart?  I know Jim has talked to you about it, I just need to find your order date so I can slot it in properly.

    @A_Ron_Hubbard @Jim

    just listening to the Shaun of the Dead cast and in regards to the cricket bat vs baseball bat I wanted to step in and give you some more information/

    I live in Australia, I play a lot of cricket and have 3 cricket bats myself (really bad humble brag)

    Whilst I think that your reasons for selecting a cricket bat as your Z.A, weapon of choice are pretty good I think you have grossly overestimated the cricket bat. 

    A cricket bat is made of 2 pieces the blade (the main piece of wood) and the cane handle (self-explanatory) the handle is wedged into the blade at the top and it looks a little bit like a V in the blade. This is a serious weak point if you want to use the bat as a weapon and in fact a lot of bats break in this area after a period of regular use.

    I would suggest you change up to a baseball bat as it is solid piece of wood but I would have picked a metal baseball bat. 
  • @davemcb, I'm still wondering about the important inquiry of whether cricket bats have a nickname similar to Louisville Slugger.
  • aberry89aberry89 California
    I would love a Kubrick film in the future...I think 2001 is just too dense to discuss within the time limits, and its been reviewed quite heavily. But I would be really interested in maybe The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, or Eyes Wide Shut...
  • anyone know where the commissioned podcast movie threads are? can't find memento or shaun of the dead? i thought Aron was starting official ones?
  • ksa1001ksa1001 Plano, TX
    Not sure about an official thread so I'll post here. Just saw The Station Agent (so I could listen to the podcast). What a great movie. It's so subtle it's ALMOST like nothing happened, but the cast was suberb and I'm glad I finally got to see it.
  • FlashGordonFlashGordon Leeds, UK
    @ksa1001 yeh I'm the same man I watched it last week, absolutely superb 
  • ArctorArctor The Netherlands
    @aberry89 The Shining has been over-analyzed to all hell as far as I'm concerned. The only angle I'd still be interested in is a solid comparison to the book as I've read it and there are some outrageous changes. Asking J & A to also read the book for such a cast would be a little too much to ask I think so my vote would go to Eyes Wide Shut or FMJ.
  • So, for The Matrix, are you just watching the 1st movie and reviewing/discussing it in a podcast or are you doing the trilogy and review/discuss?  Either way, I'll probably end up listening to the ones I want.  Thanks!
  • Obviously I'm biased, but I would love a Bald Move cast on Dr. Strangelove. I would totally contribute to that as part of a group-funded commission.
  • davemcbdavemcb Melbourne
    @NikkiP there isn't anything nearly as awesome as Louisville Slugger for cricket bats, batsmen in cricket are often said to be "Wielding the Willow" as all cricket bats are made of willow rather than pine or ash like baseball bats but that's just horrible compared to Louisville Slugger. 

    Cricket bats have changed pretty dramatically since the game was created and even changed in the last 10 years whereas baseball bats have kept the same shape pretty much since baseball was first played, some of the older bat makers aren't around any more and cricket doesn't have a brand like Louisville Slugger.

    @switters, I think we can start 'em ourselves if no official thread is posted when it comes out.

    @AntManBee Second that, would definitely kick in.

    Having played a fair bit of cricket and have talked about post apocalypse action plans alot, i say Baseball bat any day, cricket bats are heavy and unwieldy as well as being softer 
  • Damn, I had no idea a cricket bat was 2 pieces and made of Willow.  Knowing that, I'd rather snap the neck off a guitar and use that.
  • DeeDee Adelaide
    Its the cricket BALL that's dangerous. Every kid in the 70s in Australia knew of that one kid who got hit in the head and died or ended up in a coma.
  • A_Ron_HubbardA_Ron_Hubbard Cincinnati, OH
    Man, who would have thought cricket is more dangerous than American Football!  I
  • davemcbdavemcb Melbourne
    @A_Ron_Hubbard its no longer as dangerous as it was as Helmets are now more common even though one of the best cricketers in Australia died last year due to a blow to the neck. I think long term American Football is far more dangerous due to the physical nature of the game and how much it wears on you body.

    I never thought I would be talking cricket on this forum so I'm really excited

    @Dee  you're right about the ball being more dangerous, you have to think about the ball which is cork wrapped in leather and can be bowled around 100 mph and because unlike baseball the ball bounces before the batsmen it can be extremely unpredictable where the ball is going to end up at your chest or your head. Also because you have no limitation on where you can hit the ball you might be trying to hit the ball behind you and end up hitting yourself in the face.

    Im not close to the $ for a commissioned but Im stuck between 2 episodes of a show they haven't seen with a small hope they will watch more of or a random movie I like.

    I dont care of they like either show/movie or shit all over it. It would be like Bald Move Theatre 3000... sorta.

    Has anyone else(other than Metalocalypse guy(are you on the forums, whoever you are?)) commissioned a TV show?

    I havent listened to a lot of the commissioned podcasts and was curious.

  • @Jovial_Falcon I've listened to most of the commissioned podcasts and can tell you the only TV shows commissioned were a couple episodes of Murphy's Law, the first two episodes of The Americans and an interesting "Omar Little" centered cast on The Wire.

    I prefer movies when commissioning podcasts as you give them one whole piece of work to review, as opposed to cherry picking a couple episodes of a whole series. But that's just my two cents.
  • A_Ron_HubbardA_Ron_Hubbard Cincinnati, OH
    I agree, it's harder to make the television stuff work, unless we've both seen every episode, and can do an interesting slice of it like we did with The Wire, or with the STTNG finale.  If I had seen all of Sopranos, I think a cast on the final episodes would be neat. 

    Usually if someone commissions something we're not sure of, we'll talk to them in advance and let them know our concerns, and either work through it or let them pick something else.  We realize it's a big commitment of money, so anything we can do to ensure you're happy with the commission that we can do, aside from saying we liked something we don't, haha, we will. 
  • DrKenDrKen Chicago

    like we did with The Wire, or with the STTNG finale.  

    I missed the STTNG finale cast.  What feed was that in?
