BeatCast! Ep. 7 - The Sucker Punch Premiere! (Feat. Back2Gaming)

Like moths to a flame and gangsters riding high, Tim and his friends from Back2Gaming Vince and Billy made their way to SM Mall of Asia and saw the premiere of Zack Snyder's newest sensational epic action flick, Sucker Punch! Hear the tale and listen as the boys give their insights on this "headtrip" (as Billy likes to call it), and see how the visual implementation of anime, videogame, and comic book themes can blend so naturally into a film that enlists 5 gorgeous mental asylum babes and brings them into conflict with a various threats, including big ass samurai monters, nazi zombies, and fire-breathing dragons! It's as raw as it's gonna get on this newest collaboration between fanboy minds, and best be prepared for some hilarious moments concerning Billy, his *cough cough* Artbook, and his ramblings on depression! Listen up and enjoy the show!

BeatCast! Episode 6 - On Red Riding Hood and other Podcasting nonsense!

The boys of BeatCast are at it once again! After watching and going through the premiere of the "Twilight-flavored" Red Riding Hood, Tim, Mark, Billy, and Vince give their impressions on the movie and try to look for more positive ways to express their opinions on it aside from Gary Oldman's acting presence! Promotion and discussion for Back2Gaming's Podcast series also make their way into the conversation, and along with the usual round-up of games, movies, and other popculture news on the horizon, you have another intense session that goes from a parking lot to McDonald's! It's another BeatCast moment on and off the road, so go ahead and give it a listen!

BeatCast! returns for the new month of March, with a group discussion that's just going to rip your head all over the place!
