Geek Pop: Geeky TV and movies guide

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:10 >> Hey, I'm Tom Merritt. >> And I'm Molly Wood. Welcome to Geek Pop. >> This is the show where we keep you up to date on the latest movies, TV, DVDs, books and more, anything that's hot news in the geek world. >> Because we are nothing if not experts on being total dorks. Let's get started this week with movies. ^M00:00:28 [ Music ] ^M00:00:30 >> New in theaters this week is 21, which is based on the book, Bringing Down The House. The Inside Story of six MIT students who took Vegas for millions. It's a movie about counting cards in order to beat the game of Blackjack. You see, but we like about the book was the actual geekiness and kind of the cool math factor of counting cards and this movie looks like it's got some suspiciously hot math nerds and a little too much action. ^M00:00:53 [ Music ] ^M00:00:58 >> Also coming out this week, Superhero Movie starring Drake Bell and Sara Paxton. >> And who? >> You know Drake and Sara. >> You love me Rick. >> Also Leslie Nielsen. >> Now you're talking. It's your basic movie genre spoof. This time it takes a Spiderman -- you've totally seen this movie. >> And finally, in limited release starting March 28, American Zombie. It's a documentary about the zombie experience in America. ^M00:01:23 [ Crowd noise ] ^M00:01:26 >> Meaning, zombie doesn't exclude me being human. >> Actually, that's a mockumentary, Tom. >> I can't believe the bravery of the zombies who came forward to speak on camera. It's truly a ground-breaking piece of documentary of film-making. I mean it's about time zombies finally get their day. >> A-ha. And on that note, let's turn our attention to television. ^M00:01:50 [ Music ] ^M00:01:51 >> There's really only one topic in television between now and April 4 and possibly beyond. >> Battlestar Galactica! >> We have Battlestar Galactica fever right now. The final season of BSG premiers on April 4 -- but this may not be the end. >> Oh no, that's right. Sci-Fi has green-lighted a two-hour pilot of Caprica, a prequel to Battlestar Galactica. Caprica starts fifty-years before Battlestar and focuses on the two families who created the Cylons. One of those families, Clan of Adama. >> Ah, dishy. Of course, it sounds like Caprica will be very soap opera-like and focus on the relationships, which probably translates into a lower budget and a lot less base-porn. >> Yeah, probably more Caprica porn though. >> True. >> Leading up to the premier, Sci-Fi will air two half-hour BSG Specials March 28. You'll have Battlestar Galactica Revealed and Battlestar Galactica: The Phenomenon. >> We also have a one-lone piece of non-BSG TV News. Jericho has been cancelled -- again. This week's episode was the series finale. They try to wrap the whole thing up in one short hour, which is why I am hoping that the rumors of Sci-Fi or FX picking it up are gonna come true. I mean, come on the Internet loves Jericho. We'll all watch it. >> Enough non-Battlestar news. Let's wrap things up with DVDs. ^M00:03:12 [ Music ] ^M00:03:14 >> Season Three of Battlestar is finally available on DVD as of March 18. So, if you're not caught up, no excuse now and don't forget to watch Racer. >> Indeed. Also, I Am Legend came out on DVD on the 18 as well and promised to include bonus scenes. Like maybe the scenes where they didn't change the ending from the book. >> We actually recommend you go rent one of the other movies based on the I Am Legend book, Omega Man, Charlton Heston or The Last Man on Earth starring Vincent Price, which is probably the closest to the original book. In fact, the book's author Richard Matheson actually wrote the screenplay for Last Man on Earth under a pseudo name. >> You know, the original book and movies were actually considered vampire stories, not zombie stories that came later. Good trivia for you. And that will do for us. We're gonna wander off into a dark corner and snack on some tasty human treats like candy. >> Or brains. Thanks for joining us on Geek Pop. We'll be back next time with a new list of the fresh releases and dishy news. >> Delicious. >> Brains. >> Bye. Ahhh... ^M00:04:17 [ Music ]
