Mat, Thrasher, and special guest Jim Rohner (host of the I Do Movies Badly podcast) discuss Alien 3 in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. The polar opposite of Aliens, Alien 3 lacks the guns and variety of aliens of its predecessor. Instead we have Ripley in peril on a prison planet.

Mat and Thrasher discuss the film Aliens in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. Jersey Jason talks to his friend Cat about seeing the first Alien film in its original theatrical release.

Mat, Thrasher, and special guest Tyler Smith (host of the Battleship Pretension and More Than One Lesson podcasts) discuss the film Alien in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. After an alien is let loose on a spaceship and a crewmember is revealed to be an android, the blue collar crew has to fight for their lives to escape. A haunted house film in space oozing with atmosphere, Alien is a stellar example of the genre that tempers H.R. Giger's horrific designs with stately pacing reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey

Mat and Tyler talk about the Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition computer game. Thrasher enjoys production art from director Neill Blomkamp for a proposed Alien sequel that never got off the ground. Mat is tepid on the Ant-Man trailer. 

Tyler and Mat share stories of how horrible people can be in movie theaters. Thrasher likes the TV special The Christmas That Almost Wasn't. Mat and Thrasher discuss the Sequelcast getting reviewed at Bill's Movie Emporium

Mat horrifies Thrasher with the long saga of big-ass patches that don't totally fix multiplayer for the Halo Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One. Thrasher enjoys looking at eBay for improper molds of Nintendo's popular Amiibo figures; legless Princess Peaches go for a lot these days. 

Mat thinks Laura K. Buzz's Video Game Critic Simulator is a fun experiment. Thrasher is back on the board games with Chuthulu Hastur La Vista Baby. Mat likes Peggle 2 for the Xbox One but feels it's a lazy sequel as far as innovation goes.

Mat marvels at all the Spider-Man franchise ideas leaked from Sony Pictures' unfortunate hack. One thing's for sure, the next Spidey flick needs something fresh to attract more interest the next time around. May we suggest no more origin stories or retreads of what was already covered in the Sam Raimi flicks? 

Mat likes the PBS documentary American Masters: Mel Brooks: Make A Noise for its comprehensive look at the life of a master comedic filmmaker. The HBO documentary Six By Sondheim is less impressive for its scattershot look at a man's tremendous career with weird music videos overtaking the more interesting vintage Broadway rehearsal footage.

Mat wonders how they Joseph Gordon-Levitt can make Sandman into a movie. Thrasher explains who the different characters announced for the massive Suicide Squad cast are.  Both wish the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would have had a stinger feature Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, and Han.
