Today is National Podcast Day, and we are here to take part. A bit of Cavebabble history, and an invitation to try a new podcast today. Listen in!
Pirates have stolen our camera, and filmed a train wreck! Join us for in-depth reviews and banter about Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Super 8. Also featured is the latest Cavebabble Eats Odd Things, starring ground cherries. This episode is brought to you by Spoilers.
In the depths of the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, GLaDOS has awoken us, and is demanding we find an exit. It’s time for a look at Valve’s hit Portal games. We babble about Portal and Portal 2, as well as our review of Thor. This episode is brought to you by Rats in Mazes.
Cavebabble turns 100, and to celebrate, we set the controls on our time machine to a century past, the year 1911. We compare life then to ours today, including a focus on two 1911 films which would continue to be remade, The Last of the Mohicans, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. We also take a look at film stars and directors born in 1911, and introduce a new segment, Cavebabble Theater. This episode is brought to you by The Past is Now.
Take a place next to our fire, and share what frightens you most. Spiders, heights, the dark- everyone has irrational fears, and movies often play on these phobias to make us squirm. Join us for a look at our fears, and the films we find difficult to watch as a result of them. Ghost stories in the dark are included at no extra charge. This episode is brought to you by Facing Fears.
The zombie hordes are overwhelming our defenses, and it’s up to a hand-picked team of survivors to break through the walking dead. If you could choose four movie or video game characters to be with you on this team, what would your choices be? Tonight, we share ours, and why we made them. We also bring several listeners’ teams to the table. Two exceptions apply: No super powers, and no magic. Join us! This episode is brought to you by Survivor.
Have a favorite book or series of books you would love to see made into a movie? We do, too. From mystery to romance to horror to science fiction, tonight we share some of the titles we want to see on the big screen. Join us! Also featured- feedback on last week’s movie mashup show. This episode is brought to you by A Thousand Words.
Take two movie scripts, smash them together, and you have a movie mashup. Tonight, we surprise each other with some of the oddest, most hilarious combinations we would love to see on the big screen. Movie music theme mashups are included for the same free price of admission. Join us! This episode is brought to you by Unholy Alliances.
If asked to choose a movie character to spend the rest of your life with, which one would it be? What character would you be least compatible with? In honor of Valentine’s Day, we take a look at romantic roles on film, and share a few of the characters we most admire, and a few we can’t imagine getting along with. This episode is brought to you by Expectations.
Few things are more foreboding or punishing than a howling snowstorm. In film, storms and snow are often used as a moody backdrop, or to portray isolation and fear. In tonight’s solo-cast, I focus on four films which use snow to great effect- The Shining, The Thing, Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams, and Let the Right One In. This episode is brought to you by Isolation.
