The RadioBastard Podcast

This time on that podcast… Hey, did you know they are rebooting Ghostbusters? Jeremy has a few plumbing related concerns about this. Meanwhile Paul Feig apparently found Jason’s weak spot – current Saturday Night Live comedy genius Kate McKinnon.

Hey, did you know they are rebooting the Fantastic Four? The guys watch the trailer and give a honest to goodness mature review. Not really, but truth be told, Jason seems truly afraid and curious to see if the film’s seemingly antiseptic view of the FF mythos will start a trend.
Hey, did you know there is also some other reboot and non-reboot news this week? (more…)

Scotty to Work Miracles on the ‘Star Trek 3′ Script

- 01-22-15Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


I keep tryin’ to revise the script, Cap’n, but she canna be revised no more! Joke all we want, and we will, but should we be worried now that news has broken that Simon Pegg has been hired not just to reprise his role as Scotty, but to help write the script for Star Trek 3? The untitled third movie in the rebooted Nu-Trek has gone through a lot of changes in the last couple of months, switching screenwriters, canning the director and screenwriter of the previous two films, and announcing a bit of an out-of-left field choice to guide the film, Fast & Furious filmmaker Justin Lin. Now, for the coup de grâce, Pegg has been recruited to not just save the Enterprise from tear herself apart as Scotty, but apparently to save the script from tearing itself apart as well (I guess).

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Blooper Reel – Where No Blooper Reel Has Gone Before

- 09-11-14Film Posted by Mark Poynter


For those of you younger readers this might not seem like much of a big deal. It’s just another blooper reel, there are hundreds on the Internet at a click of a mouse button. For those of us old enough to remember the Before Times of the Internet, we remember seeing the mythical original series Star Trek Blooper Reel once or perhaps twice a year in a crowded, unusually hot hotel conference room at the annual local Sci-Fi convention. No one even had it on VHS back then unless you bought it off the bootleg video table. You could always find it in a darkened corner of your local comic book convention. You knew the table because every VHS tape had a photocopied cover. Now you just click and enjoy. (more…)

The casting, characters, and outrageous rumors for J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode VII continue to multiply like hungry, horny tribbles on the Internet.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Writer Roberto Orci’s Mea Culpa to Fans

- 09-09-13Film Posted by Mark Poynter


The other week, Star Trek Into Darkness writer Roberto Orci took to the Internets in response to an article on Trek Movie about fan’s at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention rating Star Trek Into Darkness as the worst Star Trek movie ever. He wasn’t alone in his reaction, Simon Pegg was also a little hot under the collar about the whole thing.

Although Pegg has not reconsidered his response, and this NerdBastard doesn’t think he should, Orci cooled down a bit, decided he could have handled the whole thing much better, and took to the Twitter-verse for his own mea copa.


Now, everything he says is true, that wasn’t exactly the best way to address the problem, but we all know how late night Internet rage can quickly escalate into something we would never do in the bright morning sun.

Orci really didn’t do or say anything that bad or unforgivable when stacked up against many of the other Internet rants we’ve seen. On a scale of one to ten, his would only rate a 5 at best.

What do you think? Should he have even bothered except for his own peace of mind?
