Listen to Our Commentary Track for Jurassic Park

Our commentary track for Jurassic Park is available for listening or download right here.

Boy, Paul and AJ sure are branching out, aren’t they? If interviews and 30-second specials weren’t enough for you, get ready to be thrilled and amazed by the boys’ first-ever commentary track! Born out of a whim to take up even more of your time, the guys decided to hunker down with a copy of Steven Spielberg’s mega-hit Jurassic Park and proffer their thoughts, musings, and ridiculous opinions on the film. Things they learned in the making of said commentary: you probably don’t want to live-feed dinosaurs; Jeff Goldblum’s exposed chest hairs get a lot of screen time; those short shorts look swell on Laura Dern, but not so much Bob Peck; and goddamn, what a great logo. I mean, there are other things, too, but it’s mostly about Jeff Goldblum’s pecs. So, enjoy!

Just to let you know, the commentary itself starts about three minutes in; we give you time to get everything set up. And if you enjoy this commentary and would like to hear more of them, drop us a line at gobbledygeek@yahoo.com or leave a comment on this here post. Which films would our voices enrich? Do you ever want to hear from us ever again after this? Let us know!

Note: After we finished recording our commentary, we were made aware of the passing of Ralph McQuarrie, the legendary concept artist who worked on classic science fiction and fantasy films such as Star WarsClose Encounters of the Third Kind, and, yes, Jurassic Park. R.I.P., Mr. McQuarrie.

Spring is about to get sprung (thanks for ruining that, Sir Mix-a-Lot), so Paul and AJ list 20 movies that might be worth your attention in February, March, and April. The films range from charming Japanese anime The Secret World of Arrietty to the very serious Albanian-language The Forgiveness of Blood; to the wacky high seas adventures of The Pirates! Band of Misfits to the Willem Dafoe/Sam Neill Tasmanian tiger (or is it wolf?) movie The Hunter. In between, you’ll find films sappy, thrilling, terrifying, and hilarious. Hopefully. Also, the seeds for a future episode are nefariously planted, and: The Cabin in the Woods is finally coming out!

Next: Just in time for the chocolates and flowers and obnoxious greeting cards of Valentine’s Day, marriage in pop culture.

Listen to Episode 73, “Where We’re Going, We Won’t Need Clothes”

I'm so blind I can't even watch this movie. Whew. Bullet dodged.

Gobbledygeek episode 73, “Where We’re Going, We Won’t Need Clothes,” is available for listening or download right here.

For the final week of Gobbledyween, Paul revisits Paul W.S. Anderson’s magnum opus Event Horizon for the first time since theaters and AJ watches it for the very first time. Also probably the last. You see, it’s not very good. Unlike The Evil Dead, The Thing, and Dawn of the Dead, this one’s not so much a classic, but the boys still mine some discussion and humor from the proceedings. They also ponder the philosophical query: does one need clothes? As always, there are some Formspring questions to round things out.

Next: it’s a Bat-stravaganza as we tackle Batman: Arkham City and the new Batman: Year One animated film.
