AoY Podcast #149 – Birds of Prey & Sonic The Hedgehog Review


Also known as: “Jonn sees bad movies, the podcast…”

And also: “Your not gonna be able to adapt to the 21st century!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:45:30)

Here’s our massive bundle of comic book films that were released back in February that are now coming out, to help with those Covid blues that you probably already saw on streaming services because its not like anyone is going to the theaters soon. Here is Sonic The Hedgehog and Birds of Prey!

(0:00 – 28:50) Review: Birds of Prey – Before anyone thought that a theater would be shut down due to people getting sick, Jonn spent his February getting sick from watching a film like Birds of Prey, and had many things to say about it. There is some standard off-the-cuff talk but we pretty much stay on topic.

(28:50 – 1:09:20) Review: Sonic the Hedgehog – Here is a film that Dustin believes was written the same time in the 90’s as that badly done Super Mario movie that no one wants to remember, even with big names like Bob Hoskins and Dennis Hopper (who both passed away in the past decade.) Surprising to Jonn, it wasn’t that bad of a film, and there is no reason for people not to see it on streaming sites, which the finger is pointing at Dustin since he’s writing this paragraph out right now. This also includes how even Chris Chan thought of the film, Timbox at Nite, how bad the Teen Titans Go movie is, and Cartoon Network rants.

(1:09:20 – 1:45:30) Closing Remarks – This goes into how Dustin bought a firearm at a local gun show, and how going to one is the best WW2 museum the NRA could ever pay for (which recently we celebrated 75 years of VE-Day). This also goes into the standard political realm of gun control talk, politics, the best damn antique show in Texas, and much more!

Music Selection:

OP – GOTTA GO FASTA

ED – EVERYBODY SUPER SANIC RACIN, GOTTA KEEP YOUR BUTT AT HOOOOOOME!!!

Darn good Timbox material…

 


AoY Podcast #115 – General Discussion Part II: The Hurricane Cast


Also known as: “…AND THAT COMBINATION WITH SEXISM IS WHY I NEEDED TO WRITE THIS POST!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:31:24)

So, its been 4 years since we titled our last episode as a “General Discussion” episode, so we figured it’s time for a sequel episode, longer and (un)better than ever! Of course, this is coming out after Hurricane Henry and during Irma, so it’s pretty fitting to release this episode in this manner. This time we are joined by guests Josh and Daft to talk about bad animated/live action movies like Batman and Harley Quinn and Death Note.

(0:00 – 1:19:30) Something of a Review: Batman and Harley Quinn / Death Note – We figured we can just bundle this into one segment with everyone crapping on the live action Americanized Death Note and Batman and Harley Quinn. This comes with discussing what “really” constitutes as rape, how Bruce Timm needs to come clean and make animated Batman porno films, the changes made in Death Note, talking about the Defenders show, Jonn moving back to Poseidon’s Revenge on Texas, and much more.

(1:19:30 – 02:31:24) Closing Remarks – Here the hosts dive right into Dustin banning from Toonzone after over 11 years of (dis)service, the symposium of a pure autistic post on Toonzone, Toonami speculations of upcoming shows in the future, anime on Kickstarter, Gundam dubbing talk and a bunch other nonsense.

Music Selection:

OP – Were gonna “Pod” you like a Hurricane…

ED – Did we mention this came out during a Hurricane…

This show has:

How to get kicked from Toonzone, the Zeonic Freak way!

And that’s the end of that chapter…

AoY Podcast #114 – Robotech: The Movie (w/ Grant the Thief)


Also known as: “LOTS OF GUNS, LOTS OF SHOOTING, LOTS OF ROBOTS, NOW THAT’S A CANNON MOVIE!”
and also: “This is Megazone 23 Rebuild… (You Cannot Macek)”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 02:21:55)

After a long time coming (that no one asked for), the podcast covers one of the worst greatest blunders of Robotech history; Robotech: The Movie: The Untold Story. This time the podcast is greeted by Robotech fan Grant The Thief.

(0:00 – 1:23:40) The Untold Review: Robotech: The Movie (ie, Talk-About-Robotech-Than-This-Crappy-Film-For-Over-An-Hour-And-Twenty-Minutes) – No the headline isn’t lying to you guys, Dustin, Jonn and Grant really did talk about other Robotech stuff than this film. Think about it, if the hosts really “did” talk about Robotech: The Movie, this podcast would have been really short, and who wants that? Before ever going into trying to summarize the wikipedia article of this film, the hosts just talked Robotech from property rights, fandom and silly crossovers throughout Robotech lifetime. This also gets into discussion on Harmony Gold properties (like that Captain Harlock dub), who Carl Macek really is, how people forgot how to draw Robotech officially, how anime being shown on television has changed for the better and much more.

(1:23:40 – 02:21:55) Closing Remarks – Dustin and Jonn bring in the verdict for the Rise and Crash of KidsClickTV, Grant brings in how great Lupin the 3rd is, Dustin being a panelist at Electric City Comic Con, Cartoon Network shows, crazy Robotech podcasters, and how breaking up with your fiancee is hard to do. All this and more in this weeks episode.

Music Selection:

OP – Why can’t I be saaaaaaaved, from Harmony Gold!

ED – The future is looking grim for Robotech, oh wait, that’s nothing new…

I hope the rest of this gets on TV for real…

AoY Podcast #113 – Wonder Woman Review


Also known as: “The Armenians are taking over Man!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time:2:09:43)

So this is after 4th of July, but we’re still wanna celebrate the red white and blue on the best DC movie in the past few years, Wonder Woman.

(0:00 – 1:00:13) Movie Review – Wonder Woman: Both Jonn and Dustin saw the recent DC Cinemoviematic Universe film and thought its probably the best film DC has done since the Nolan Batman films. This of course doesn’t start happening till about 18 minutes in because Jonn talks about how Armenians hacked his iPhone, and also includes a brief history lesson on the German Empire, terrible Superman comics, the Megyn Kelly/Alex Jones interview debacle, Starzan S is out on Bluray in Japan, and upcoming movies.

(1:00:13 – 2:09:43) Closing Remarks: Jonn talks about bad CGI films from Video Brinquedo, A man sneaks into an all female showing of Wonder Woman and survives, people who play Minecraft and freak out when their mom calls them, Trumps tweets sound like sitcom characters and Korean cartoons talk. Dustin mentions his root canal woes, doing panels at a local con coming up, crap to buy from ebay, organizing a local church video game tournament, the SNES Mini talk, bad Gundam fan films made in high school, a brief stint on the Transformers film, and a ton more.

Music Selection:

OP – The best DC theme song of all time

ED – The Space Thunder Kids Fan Club Theme

This show has:

(Against my better judgement, everyone and their mom can now witness these terrible Gundam fan films after being in my box of VHS tapes for almost two decades – Dustin)

The next great DC film waiting to happen guys…

Oh man, greatest CGI animation of all time right here guys!!!

 

 


AoY Podcast #97 – Suicide Squad / Killing Joke Review


 

 

suicide_squad_background2_0Also known as: “I’VE NEVER SEEN WILL SMITH BOUNCE A BULLET OFF OF A WAVE!

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:25:20)

This time the gang is back in the pits of the DC comic book villain detention center, as hosts Dustin, Jonn and Daft go head to head with the Suicide Squad.

(0:00 – 1:21:51) Movie Review: Suicide Squad – I’ts been a while since we covered the DC spring release of Batman v. Superman, but it seems DC still wants to make sure it’s fans are keeping up to date on what is going on. Despite the hosts differing opinions on the film, one thing seems to be certain for what really DC fans have wanted for so many years on the big screen; and that’s to see Harley Quinn. Regardless of what the critics might say about the movie, even including us, we seem to think this movie is still going to make a lot of money at the box office. Of course with usual fare, Dustin, Jonn and Daft set up shop at the old abandoned podcast watering hole to ramble about comic books in general, how we are using the Slack to replace Skype (bout FREAKING TIME AMIRITE!), upcoming comic book movies, how Dustin feels that Suicide Squad might be part Cyber City Oedo (but not really), Deadshot would lose to Golgo 13 and much more.

(1:21:51 – 1:58:04) Movie Review: Killing Joke – After playing the Alan “Grand Wizardman” Moore theme song, it seemed to be the perfect transition into Jonn and Daft review of the Killing Joke DC animated movie. The review mostly went into what DC does and doesn’t do best when it comes to adapting comics to film, along with more comic book gripes and praises.

(1:58:04 – 2:25:20) Closing Remarks – The gang unwinds from this DC cinematic trip by Dustin talking about Electric City Comic Con (not Emerald City, my bad guys), the group giving commentary on the Olympics, Dustin joins a DoD:S clan, Sports talks, people on social media, and much more.

SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: We’re getting close to our 100th episode, so here is the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: aoypodcast@gmail.com, or you could tweet at us over at@AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we will see what happens!

AoY Podcast #88 – Batman v Superman Review

Also known as: “MARTHAAAAAH!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:09:22)

We might be a tad late on getting our review out, but better late than never, even if it is about a movie that came out last month. This time, we have our podcast in two segments in an A-Team and B-Team review of Batman v. Superman.

(0:00 – 1:47:02) Movie Review: A-Team – Here we have our notable comic book film critics Jonn, Daft and Tee Why, who all three saw the movie opening night, and recording the day after about their thoughts on the film. This of course was bringing into discussion on other comic book properties that will be coming out (or not), and you get to hear their views on that.

(1:47:02 –  2:09:22) Movie Review: B-Team – This was a recording done about two weeks after the A-Team covered the movie, this time with Dustin and Sean Ryan. This was really for another recording for a school project Dustin was doing, but to warm up the mics Dustin had to get his hard hitting opinions out there about what he witnessed the night before. This also contains general talk on politics and whatever towards the end.

AoY Podcast #83 – Digimon Adventure Tri Review

Also known as: “Whats a guy like me gotta do to get some sex in his life?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 2:18:57)

For this week, we got a handful of people on to talk about the latest Digimon series. Dustin was absent from this episode (and this was recorded the night before our Star Wars review), but Jonn and returning guests Daft, Josh and Cloud spent their evening on the show to talk about Digimon Adventure Tri.

There is no need to bother with time codes in this episode, since it seems to be less about Digimon and more about the hosts ranting on every other nerdy fandom out there. If you want to experience total levels of nerdom from something out of Evan Dorkin’s The Eltingville Club “comic book realm of geekdom,” then this is your sanctum. Aside from discussing Digimon, the gang go into their abyss of opinions about the fall of 4Kids, comic book series and movies, people in the anime industry that would be in our old AIM chat rooms years ago (and how they were treated by some), Nickalodeon vs Cartoon Network scheduling wars, anime companies, people on the internet we know, Precure talk and so much more. There might be some audio issues certain sentences cutting out, and that is due to some glitches on audacity part, oh well. Originally this skype call went on for like 6 hours, but Jonn recorded up to 3 and I will use that later part on another recording down the road, so we’ll see.

Music Selection:

OP – We Try and stay on topic, but we couldn’t…

ED – Part of your childhood that won’t come back…

Come on, you know this is what would happen if 4Kids got a hold of this show…


AoY Podcast #11 – OUR SUPER DUPER LEFTOVER BONUS PODCAST


Overstuffed-Fridge-With-Rotting-Food

Also known as: “Did he say ‘French Hookers’?”

Were taking a brief detour break from our Gundam month, because well… we don’t have Turn A Gundam ready yet, or even recorded. However, I’ve had these ‘leftovers’ of recording material for months now that I just didn’t know what to do with all of them. So, I decided to just COMBINE THEM ALL IN ONE EPISODE!! That’s right guys, I was really lazy and just put 4 previous, unedited, recordings into one podcast episode, because I think that might be the best course of action. I should warn, this is close to the 6 HOUR MARK!!! So, I don’t expect anyone to sit through this whole thing at once (god help you if you do.)

I am, however, nice enough to give time sections to what we talked about, so if you wanna skim to a certain point or you wanna know where we are at (which, we don’t even know where were at most of the time), look at the time on the episode and see if it corresponds with the time on whats written below.

Also, I will issue a challenge to anyone who can listen to this whole episode by the time our next episode comes out. Whoever is the first to comment on this post saying they did it, will get my thanks for wasting your time listening to this podcast. Or… I’ll think of something legit, I dunno. So, here we go:

0’00-1’33-ish: This was recorded sometime in October of 2012 with our last podcast. This is us discussing the Black Dynamite show/movie with our “internet correspondent” DaftPunkFan, which he also gives his tale at Another Anime Convention 2012. We also go off topic to talk about Disney shows, and me defending/discussing late 1990’s MTV cartoons. And Daft talks about Eden of the East for a bit also.

1’33’30-1’48’17: Me and Jonn decide to critique a podcast episode at Toon Radio Science. I think critiquing is the appropriate term. Recording back in January…something.

1’48’17-3’34’40: This was our CN Upfront discussion that was announced like late January/early February with Daft, Josh, Jonn and I. We also talked a bit about Hulk Hogan and Check it Out! on Adult Swim, along with other things.

3’34’40-5’49’47 :I sat this one out as Jonn, Josh and Daft talked about DC/Marvel properties such as Death of the Family, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Superman/Batman ApocalypseThey mention some guy who stalks people on AIM, as well as other things.

Site Disclaimer: I wanted to also point out, i’m working on a new podcast header, so I hope you’ll enjoy it. Ill keep this one up for now, but since i’m on spring break, ill have more time to tweak it a bit.
