My Geek Confessions #91 – 01/31/2014

Cover Art for My Geek Confessions

Welcome to our episode for January 31, 2013!

Sadly Cori is out but due to technical reasons more than anything. This week we talk about the trailer for the new Terry Gilliam movie, Anna Kendrick’s not really Super Bowl ad, and more characters on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Then in Talk Nerdy to Me, we have a Thor 2 deleted scene with Tom Hiddleston, a Frozen parody, and a great “Behind the Bricks” for the LEGO movie.

It’s a video heavy episode, so we apologize in advance.

“My Geek Confessions – Watching Bad Movies, So You Don’t Have To!”

This is the trailer for the newest movie by the same director who made Time Bandits, Brazil, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and other super weird movies. This one is Zero Theorem and is sure to be just as trippy as the others.

We’re saving Super Bowl commercials for next week, but since this one is purposefully making fun of NOT being in the Super Bowl, it’s included here. Anna Kendrick is really disappointed that her commercial isn’t in the Super Bowl.

Sadly, I’m too old for when the original COSMOS by Carl Sagan, but I’m really looking forward to the new version. But now we have a brand new commercial promoting it before it premieres on FOX on March 09!

The last installment (or so they say) of The Greatest Moment in Television History is finally here, and now you can watch the entire thing as they recreate (again masterfully in my opinion) the opening for Bosom Buddies.

Bill Hader does some amazing Star Wars impressions on his latest visit to Conan. His impressions are probably better than the movie will be.

If you want something scary and reason to buy a type of car, then this ad from Subaru as they use the car to escape the Titans from Attack on Titan, then this commercial will certainly do it. If the Titans look like this in the Live Action movie, then it’s time to head for the hills!

In Thor: The Dark World there was a great cameo from Captain America. But in this deleted scene, we see that they originally had Loki himself wearing the suit! (Tom Hiddleston alluded to this scene before and was very excited to wear it.)

Next is a brand new Maleficent trailer with a creepy version of “Once Upon a Dream” sung by Lana Del Rey. Sadly the more I hear about this movie, the less interested I am since they seem to make her some anti-hero instead of just evil.

Not that I’m surprised by this parody at all, but someone did a bad Arnold Schwarzenegger impression and did scenes of him as Mr. Freeze and did a cover of “Let It Go” from Frozen. I will say that the effect is chilling.

We’re stupidly excited for the LEGO movie and this just helps us get amped up. This is a fake “behind the bricks” featurette of the “actors” behind the LEGO movie. Definitely worth a watch.
