My Geek Confessions #93 – 02/14/2014

Cover Art for My Geek Confessions

Welcome to our episode for February 14, 2014!

Sadly this week we lost two Hollywood legends, Shirley Temple and Sid Caesar. We gush on The LEGO Movie, Comcast buys Time Warner Cable and hope no one cares (everyone cares), and Shia LaBeouf continues to be weird. In TV News, there’s more Flash casting, a few cancellations, and DC Comics messing up again with FOX’s “Gotham.”

In Talk Nerdy to Me, there are more videos for The LEGO Movie, Conan O’Brian is a zombie, and Paul Bettany cast as “The Vision.”

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

This is a super short clip, but would explain some of the challenges that the Olympics at Sochi, Russia have had. It shows AT-AT’s attacking during an event.

Our episode ran long because we gushed about The LEGO Movie so much. To continue our praise are two clips. First, is a blooper reel that’s been animated. Second, is the too short but fantastic full length “Untitled Self Portrait” from Batman.

Lastly, we have a cold open from Conan when Conan O’Brian had most of the cast of the Walking Dead on. So we got this great video of Conan as a zombie for the opening.
