The Dorking Out Show

The show for anyone who loves to dork out about the stories in pop culture that we love. That means TV and movies, books and podcasts, and any other kind of engaging storytelling we can find. We talk about Star Wars and Gilmore Girls, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Trek, Netflix and Amazon, Serial and S-Town and, and, and... Every week noted TV critic and blogger Sonia Mansfield and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Christopher Allan Smith talk about movies, TV, books and more from both a fan and creator perspective. Think of it as a great conversation over drinks with your quick, clever friends who know about a lot.

Rundown: Earlier this year, director Steven Spielberg read a spec script by 31-year-old Liz Hannah about the Pentagon Papers and The Washington Post’s decision to publish those papers after a court injunction. He dropped everything he was doing and started filming, because he knew how timely it was. The movie, called appropriately enough The Post, stars Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Bob Odenkirk and a bunch of other actors that make you say, “Hey! Isn’t that actor from BREAKING BAD, MR SHOW, FARGO, etc?”

Dec 15, 2017

Rundown: Another excuse for Chris to talk to his favorite living critic, Jeff Bond and do a deep dive into his new book, The Art of Star Trek: The Kelvin Timeline. Or at least that’s where this started. When Seth McFarland revealed Jeff’s book on McFarland new show, The Oroville, I thought I’d pepper in a few questions. Then Jeff revealed he wrote a very thoughtful piece for the 40th anniversary Vinyl Record Edition of John Williams’ Star Wars score. That’s out now as well. Then there are his liner notes for the new edition of Burt Bacharach’s 1960s James Bond parody Casino Royale soundtrack. That’s famous for The Look of Love.

But we start with the nutty Star Trek/Quentin Tarantino news...

Dec 4, 2017

Rundown: We talk about Francis McDormand's new movie, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and possibly the larger subject of promising storytellers aping the style of other successful storytellers. Then we bring on best friend of the show Peter Brown, Associate Editor of Assignment X for a mini segment of Dorking Out About Trailers in light of this week’s The Avengers: Infinity War trailer breading every trailer record ever. We talk about the trailer, the movie and what besides silver bullets can stop Disney’s march toward world domination.

 

Topic 1: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

When the local police fail to solve the case of her daughter’s rape and murder, Mildred Hayes (played by France McDormand) rents three billboards on the outside of town with a message directed at the police chief, William Willoughby (played by Woody Harrelson). "Raped while dying", "And still no arrests", and "How come, Chief Willoughby?"

Sam Rockwell plays one of Willoughby’s fellow officers. He’s a racist hothead mama’s boy who just makes things worse. Written and directed by Martin McDonagh, THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is getting award show buzz with nominations for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell’s performances from the Los Angeles Film Critics, Independent Spirit Awards and the British Independent Film Awards.

 

Topic 2: Dorking Out About the Avengers: Infinity War Trailer with Peter Brown

We take a deep dive into all things MCU with a look at the massive smash the Avengers: Infinity War has become. Plus, we predict what we think will happen when the movie finally hits the big screen.

Rundown: We talk about Justice League, the culmination of Warner Bros’ attempt to replicate the success Marvel has had on the big screen with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Has DC’s Cinematic Universe, which includes the critically battered Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad and the critically lauded Wonder Woman, turned their creaky ship around? Then we talk about what we’re dorking out about, including Lady Bird, Rian Johnson's new Star Wars trilogy, The Lord of the Rings TV show, Only the Brave, Murder on the Orient Express and Logan’s Run, Alias Grace on Netflix.

Rundown: We’re doing visit Dorking Out Studios and talk about some movie franchises that we’d like to see reboots. I think our picks will surprise you. One of the awesome things about Dorking Out Studios the complete lack of sexual abuse and harassment, which brings me to our second segment. Sexual abuse and sexual harassment: Is every man in Hollywood awful? We’re going to talk about it. And finally, Smith and our Star Trek experts Jeff Bond and Alexandra August talk about Sunday night’s Chapter 1 finale of “Star Trek: Discovery."

Topic 1: Remakes, Reboots and Revivals... What we'd remake if given the chance

Chris' Intro: A persistent theme on the show is remakes, reboots, revisits and revivals when it comes to the stories in pop culture we love. What separates something that could be a worthwhile reboot/remake, like The Thing, or Cape Fear, Oceans 11,  3:10 to Yuma or Casino Royale, and what makes something blasphemous, like a Casablanca, ET, The Wizard of Oz, Psycho, Back to the Future, Jaws or Airplane?

We thought we'd hash it over then offer up our own ideas for rebooting existing properties we’d like to see. I suspect one or both will get us quite a bit of heat and hate mail, and I’m somewhat counting on it.

Sonia: The Before Trilogy (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight)

Chris: Raiders of the Lost Ark (Indiana Jones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?! Well, give a look at Captain America: The First Avenger again...)

Topic 2: OK, let’s talk about it: Sexual harassment in Hollywood, or how is Michael Bay not on this list segment?!

Sonia's Intro: I don’t even know where to start with this one, so I’ll just start right here. For several weeks it has been nonstop raining sexual harassment allegations. Every day, another member of show business, whether it’s an actor, a writer, a director, a movie producer, is being accused of sexual harassment and sexual abuse. It’s a long list, but here’s just the ones I thought of off the top of my head and I’m leaving off the politicians like, you know, the President of the United States: Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Bryan Singer, James Toback, Louis CK, Andy Dick and Dan Schneider. Oh, and let’s throw Bill Cosby, Woody Allen and Mel Gibson on this list, too.

Every day I hear that another story is coming out and I think to myself, “Oh god. Please don’t be Weird Al Yankovic. He seems so nice.”

I’m so proud of these brave women and men for sharing their stories. And to the people that say that they are just sharing their stories for publicity, “Go f*** yourself.” It’s not easy to tell these stories. There are much easier ways to get publicity.

These stories make me so angry and so sad, but I’m glad that the truth is coming out. And these are just the actions of men in powerful positions. Imagine the stories of women who don’t work in Hollywood. I’ve talked a lot. Smith, what do you think? Is everyone in Hollywood the worst?

Status Check: Star Trek: Discovery Episode 9

Joining us today to talk about the Chapter 1 Finale of Star Trek: Discovery is Jeff Bond, my favorite living pop culture critic. He wrote the book on STAR TREK MUSIC, has helped release the amazing STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES COMPLETE SOUNDTRACK boxed set, he even played Dr. Leonard H. 'Bones' McCoy on the late, great STAR TREK: NEW VOYAGES. This December his new book, The Art of Star Trek: The Kelvin Timeline will be released and I will be reading by noon on Christmas day... AND Alexandra August, one of the quickest, funniest pop culture commenters we know, Alexandra August. You may know her as the co-host for the fantastic GOT Thrones podcast, from her writing at Geek Magazine. If you don’t, well, that’s your loss dummy!

Rundown: In this week’s episode, we talk about the blonde headed stepchild of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor and review the third movie in that series, Thor: Ragnarok. Is this the best movie in the MCU, or another Dark World? Joining us for that is Peter Brown, Associate Editor of Assignment X. Then we welcome AJ Muller, writer for Daily Grindhouse and Horrorview to talk about Netflix’s most recent juggernaut, Stranger Things 2: The Strangening. I may have added to this title. Then we welcome Jeff Bond to talk about Star Trek: Discovery Episode 8.

Topic 1: Thor: Ragnarok Review

Thor: Ragnarok, the third movie in Marvel’s Thor series and the seventeenth movie in the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe came out Friday. As Marvel is starting to release these comic book epics at a nearly quarterly clip… Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 came out six months ago, Spiderman: Homecoming came out four months ago and Black Panther is coming out three months from now… we will dispense with our usual ‘State of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’ discussion.

Rejoining us is best friend of the show, Peter Brown, the Associate Editor of Assignment X and one of our favorite comic book movie thinkers.

Topic 2: Stranger Things Season 2

Unless you’ve been trapped in the Upside Down, you know that the second season of STRANGER THINGS dropped on October 27 on Netflix, but we have a no-binge watching rule here on Dorking Out, so we’re talking about the show now. If you don’t know what STRANGER THINGS is, well, welcome back from the Upside Down, and you don’t need to watch the show, because you lived it.

Created by the Duffer Brothers, STRANGER THINGS is about four preteen boys in the early 80s who get involved in the mysterious goings-on in their small town in Indiana. It’s a mix of Stephen King, John Carpenter and Steven Spielberg: in other words, it’s got horror, sci-fi and a big helping of nostalgia. Plus, throw in some Gremlins, oh and some Goonies with the addition of Sean Astin to the cast, and Aliens with the addition of Paul Reiser. The Duffer Brothers have said that STRANGER THINGS 2 is more of a sequel than a second season, and I think that comes across. It’s got a little sequelitis - it’s bigger; it’s got more, more, more.

Joining us to talk about Stranger Things is Albert Muller, and since all of his friends call him AJ we will be calling him Albert, and he writes for DailyGrindhouse.com and Horrorview.

Status Check: Star Trek: Discovery

Returning today to talk about Star Trek: Discovery Ep08, "Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum” is my favorite living critic, Jeff Bond. He’s the author of several books, including The Music of Star Trek and The Art of Star Trek: The Kelvin Timeline, as well as a forthcoming book on Seth MacFarlane's The Orville.

Oct 30, 2017

Rundown: We review the new Netflix series MINDHUNTER. The 10-episode series is executive produced by David Fincher. Is amazing like ZODIAC or lame like THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON? You’ll have to listen to find out. For our second segment, we have a quick little chat about what we’re dorking out about this week. And finally, Chris talks two week’s worth of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY with Alexandra August and Jeff Bond.

Topic 1: David Fincher's Mindhunter

You may have noticed we don’t talk much about cop shows on TV. That’s because the police procedurals is one of the oldest genres in the medium, and  it’s been so picked over and redone, with your Dragnets, your Adam 12s, your Hill Street Blues, your Law and Orders, your CSIs, your Southlands and your True Detectives, there is very little new to do. The most interesting, engaging things on TV tend to not be cop shows. Argue with me on Twitter if you must.

So when David Fincher announced plans to adapt Mindhunter, the non-fiction book by pioneering FBI Criminal Profiler John Douglas about the early days of the FBI’s famous Behavioral Science Unit, I was not sure what to expect. I love Fincher like a lot of modern fanboys, and am with their consensus he’s one of the best directors working today. But he is a very particular taste. And of late, he has mentioned the comic book pressures of modern Hollywood are making it tougher to get the kinds of projects he likes off the ground.

So is the new Netflix show, also called Mindhunter just a cash-in retread of Seven, Zodiac and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?

Or has Fincher found a patch of untilled soil in the cop show fields and given us something unique and interesting while still having as his subject FBI agents and serial killers?

 

Topic 2: What We’re Dorking Out About This Week Potpourri

Sonia talks about recent scary movies she's been loving, and Chris dips his toe into movies hoping for Oscar gold in 2018.

Topic 3: Status Check, Star Trek: Discovery

Returning today to talk about Star Trek: Discovery Ep06, "Lethe" and Ep07 "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad" is my favorite living critic, Jeff Bond, author of The Art of Star Trek: The Kelvin Timeline as well as a forthcoming book on Seth MacFarlane's The Orville.

Alexandra August, huge Star Trek fan, writer for Geek Magazine as well as host of GOT Thrones and the new DiscoTrek, will return to this segment next week.

Rundown: We bring on our old Pop Show friends Peter Brown, Ryan Mitchelle and Anthony C. Ferrante to discuss scary movies we might not think are our favorites but that we just really, really like. Then we discuss the new tennis horror film, a Kafkaesque distortion of the natural order, Battle of the Sexes starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell… my description might not be entirely accurate… then we welcome again Jeff Bond and Alexandra August to talk about Episode 05 of Star Trek: Discovery.

Topic 1: Scary Movies We Love with Anthony, Peter & Ryan

Anytime is a good time for scary movies, but October is THE BEST time. Smith and I shared some of our favorite scary movies last year with Patrick Bromely from F This Movie. This year, we decided to have a little Assignment X Pop Show reunion to talk about some of our horror movie favorites. We have my favorite chainsaw wielding maniac, Anthony C. Ferrante, director of a few horror movies himself, including “Boo” and “Headless Horseman,” as well as the “Sharknado” movies and “Forgotten Evil.” We also have my favorite axe-wielding serial killer Ryan Mitchelle, director of “Jesus, Bro!”, and my favorite favorite cannibal who will eat your liver with fava beans and a nice chianti, Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X. Thank you, gentlemen, for joining us. Let’s just jump right and talk about our favorite horror movies to watch in October.

 Anthony: American Werewolf In London (1981) The Changling, Videodrome

Ryan: Poltergist (1982)

Peter: The Thing (1982)

Chris: The Dead Zone (1983)

Sonia: The Tingler/House on Haunted Hill (1959) - Vincent Price movies, Christine

 

Topic 2: Battle Of The Sexes

Our review of the new Battle of the Sexes, new film directed by Little Miss Sunshine’s Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. It’s about the famous 1970s exhibition tennis match between the world’s reigning top women’s player, Billie Jean King and one time men’s champion Bobby Riggs. 

 

Topic 3: Episode Discussion, Star Trek: Discovery Ep05

Returning today to talk about Star Trek: Discovery Ep05, "Choose Your Pain” is my favorite living critic, Jeff Bond. He’s the author of several books, including The Music of Star Trek and The Art of Star Trek: The Kelvin Timeline, as well as a forthcoming book on Seth MacFarlane's The Orville.

Also joining us is Alexandra August, one of the quickest, funniest pop culture commenters we know, Alexandra August. You may know her as the co-host for the fantastic GOT Thrones podcast, from her writing at Geek Magazine. If you don’t, well, that’s your loss dummy!

We review BLADE RUNNER 2049, which is the latest installment in the BLADE franchise starring Wesley Snipes. I kid, obviously. Margo D. from the Book vs. Movie podcast joins us to talk about one of the long-awaited sequel to BLADE RUNNER, which is one of the most influential sci-fi movies of all time. In our second segment, Smith and I talk about the new documentary SPIELBERG, which aired on HBO Saturday night. After watching it I have a whole new appreciation for THE LOST WORLD. Not really. And finally, we end our show with our weekly roundtable discussion about Sunday night’s episode of STAR TREK DISCOVERY with Jeff Bond and Alexandra August. 

Topic 1: Blade Runner 2049 Review with Margo D from Book v Movie

The original 1982 BLADE RUNNER directed by Ridley Scott is considered a sci-fi masterpiece. It influenced pretty much every futuristic sci-fi movie that came after it, and it was burned in the brain of a generation of visionary filmmakers such as Guillermo del Toro and Christopher Nolan. Still, at the time of its release, BLADE RUNNER wasn’t a box office success. Perhaps if it had been a box office success we wouldn’t have had to wait 35 years for a sequel … but maybe that’s a good thing. BLADE RUNNER 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve, who directed one of my favorite recent movies ARRIVAL, and stars Ryan Gosling as a blade runner who uncovers a huge secret that would disrupt the uneasy relationship between replicants and humans, which leads him to Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard from the original. We’re going to talk about the movie spoiler free for a bit, but we will probably get into spoilers a little later. Don’t worry, though. We will give you a heads up first.

Joining us to talk about BLADE RUNNER 2049 is one of my favorite podcasting people, Margo D from Book vs Movie. But before we jump into our BLADE RUNNER review, and I want to ask you both: Which one of the BLADE RUNNER cuts is your favorite? This movie has been tinkered with countless times, and there are three different versions floating around, including the original, the director’s cut and the final cut, which is the only one that Ridley Scott had complete control over.

Topic 2: SPIELBERG... the documentary and the man

On Saturday night HBO premiered a Susan Lacy’s new documentary on the films and life of Steven Spielberg, who needs no introduction beyond this: He is the director of Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T: The Extra Terrestrial, Empire of the Sun, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, Amistad, AI, Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, Lincoln and Bridge of Spies.

Topic 3: Episode Discussion, Star Trek: Discovery Ep04

Returning today to talk about Star Trek: Discovery Ep04, "The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry is my favorite living critic, Jeff Bond. He’s the author of several books, including The Music of Star Trek and The Art of Star Trek: The Kelvin Timeline, as well as a forthcoming book on Seth MacFarlane's The Orville.

Also joining us is Alexandra August, one of the quickest, funniest pop culture commenters we know, Alexandra August. You may know her as the co-host for the fantastic GOT Thrones podcast, from her writing at Geek Magazine. If you don’t, well, that’s your loss dummy!
