You think you can spare a minute or two of your time to learn something more about our home planet? Because this podcast that I’d like to feature today has some pretty interesting factoids and stories about mother earth that I think we ought to know about so that we might be able to appreciate it more and not take it for granted.
With Minute Earth podcast, you get to find out about some pretty fascinating stuff about the things around you, and perhaps even learn something that you weren’t taught about in school. Know the answers to questions that ran through your mind as a kid that you never even had till now. I bet that even now that you’re an adult, you still don’t know that there’s a limit to how high a mountain can be and why. Seriously, you don’t even have to be someone who’s into natural science to find Minute Earth’s 1 to 2-minute videos interesting.
(Hmm, I wonder what it would be like if TV commercials were about scientific stuff… would it be more appreciated? Would it be enough to prevent or at least minimize the dumbing down of society? ;P)

Some say that life begins at 40. If that’s the case then what happens when you reach 30?
Listen to this podcast and you might just find out. Dirty 30 Something is a fresh new audio podcast hosted by Marissa Korbel and Nick Dothee where they, together with their guests share their life experiences and discuss what life is like in their thirties.
As the show’s slogan simply put it, it’s “where adults (on paper, at least) come clean about being lost.” What did we expect our lives to be like when we’re 30? What is it like to achieve one’s childhood dream by the time he or she reaches 30? These are just a couple of the questions that Marissa and Nick have tackled in their past episodes, so if you want to find out what they have to say about it then feel free to check out the episodes either on their website.
In this featured episode, titled Static Kling, both Marissa and Matt (the show’s graphic designer) have decided to quit Facebook, so what does Nick have to say about it? Joining them in them in the discussion is Stephen Kling, a.k.a. The Real Kling, who’ll talk about turning 30 and also give a cautionary tale about mixing the Bay to Breakers with Facebook.
Also, the group’s going to talk about if it’s OK to have a dayjob at 30-something, and not having a backup plan. You can listen to the episode via the embedded player below.
If you’re a movie fanatic then this is a podcast you may want to check out. The Ultimate Movie Commentary is a broadcast show that brings you commentary tracks for the most film franchises.
The show features different movies that the hosts have seen on theaters and DVDs and they give their synopses on them.
So for this show, well you’ve got to have a copy of the movie they’re reviewing be it on Blu-Ray, DVD or digital copy to keep up with their discussion and understand the story behind the film.
Here’s an episode about the movie Evil Dead II (eviler and deader according to them) wherein the hosts discuss what they’ve noticed about the film. For them it was a bit of disappointment as it featured only minor changes, with scenes being almost similar to the original. So basically they’ve spent more for a movie that offers the same things as the original.
Fans of acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-Wook is in for another surprise (or shall I say “shock”?) once they find out that another one of his revenge films has already been marked for a Hollywood remake.
While his film Oldboy found itself in the directorial hands of Spike Lee, it is still not clear as to who, at this point, will be directing this remake. So far, producer Mark Vahradian’s (Transformers Trilogy) was mentioned, as did Lorenzeo di Bonaventura’s too of di Bonaventura Pictures. The latter is said to have teamed up with Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment for the remake together with CJ Entertainment, according to Deadline. Also reported to be involved in the project is Brian Tucker, who’ll be tasked to translate and transcribe the story into an American setting.

So what can we, especially the fans, expect in this westernized version of the film? Well, in the original film, the story centers around a deaf-mute man who seeks revenge after being ripped off of the money he saved for his sister’s operation. Whereas in this remake, it will center around “two men who are bound by their common sense of loss and headed on a collision course of revenge,” according to the publication.
Somehow I can’t help but fear for Sympathy for Lady Vengeance now. Anyway, check out the trailer for the original Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance below.
By the way, Spike Lee’s Oldboy is scheduled to be released on October 11; it even already has released a promotional poster.
After appearing in The Hunger Games and winning an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, it seems like Jennifer Lawrence’s career is on a roll.
This time, you’ll be seeing Lawrence as a mutant for next summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Production of the film has started and she’s reprising the role of the younger Mystique. The plot is based on the two-issue storyline of the same title in which the X-Men goes time traveling.
Lwrence’s prosthetics and makeup aren’t different from what she had on back in 2011’s X-Men: First Class. Each application of make-up would take six cosmetologists and seven hours in applying it.
This time around, a body suit has been designed to achieve the same look in less time and with less discomfort to the actress. Let’s see how she turns out once the movie is out!
OK, so now we only have less than two months left before we get to see Guillermo del Toro’s much anticipated kaiju (re: giant monster) film, Pacific Rim, crashes into theaters in July 12. But if you’re a true kaiju fan, you probably are already looking ahead and way past that. Chances are, you’re already wondering about the current status of the giant monster flick that’s next in line – Godzilla. Well, have we got a treat for you. A few set photos and a couple of videos from the production have just surfaced the web, and from the looks of it, it seems like it just confirmed that the military will once again have a big presence in the reboot. But then again, there’s no surprise there, really.
Anyway, the set photos mostly show Aaron Taylor-Johnson running among soldiers and tanks. Here are a few of them:
This latest and upcoming Godzilla film will be directed by Gareth Edwards, the man who brought you Monsters (2010), and it’ll also star Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, and Elizabeth Olsen. It opens in 3D on May 16, 2014.
By the way, a bit off topic, for those of you who still haven’t seen Pacific Rim’s latest trailer, here it is (it was just released on early Thursday, May 16).
