Director Bryan Singer, the man behind X1, X2, producer/story writer of First Class, and now director once again of X-Men: Days of Future Past (aka all the good X-Movies), took to Twitter on Thursday to announce the release date for the next X-Men…See More
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 7, Issue 3: Sidekicks!
Every great hero has a strong, barely pubescent, side-kick behind them. No, let's not think too deeply about that, but suffice it to say, the sidekick is an under-appreciated role in the history of fiction and the League takes a look at the best of…Continue
I know what you're thinking: "That show is for high school girls. Why would I want to waste my time?" Because, really, this show is better (and darker) than it has any right to be. It is, for the most part, character-driven, and those viewers who get sucked into the show will keep watching because they will genuinely care about the characters.
In Season 2, the writers continue to expand the mythology of the vampires and witches, while adding the requisite werewolves to the…
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 7, Issue 1: By Crom!
Okay, so maybe we didn't get around to the monkey thing as originally planned, but give us a break: it's the first issue of a brand new volume and there was a lot to cover! Like, for instance, a new full time LEOGer is inducted in, and TWO special guests, Rick Klaw and Mark Finn, wax eloquent on Conan and the other works of Robert E Howard. Check…Continue
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 32: Scores and Soundtracks
I can't believe its taken us this long to do a show about this, so we get serious about it. Our guest, Brian Satterwhite, an honest to god film composer, fills us in our the behind the scenes stuff, and we all weigh in on our faves. Now what about you guys? Let's see you post some youtube vids in the comments of your favorite songs and…Continue
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 31: Westerns
This week we talk about westerns. Yup, nothing but western talk here. Need look no further than this issue to hear about westerns. We certainly wouldn't let our surprise guests get us off track. That would be unprofessional. COMING NEXT WEEK: another episode where we do not talk about…Continue
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 30: Captain America
But of course it's the Captain America episode. What did you expect, as naturally since the movie is out, it's what we and our friends have been talking about around the water cooler (or bottle of scotch, as the case may be). Check…Continue
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 28: The Unseasonal 'Blue' Episode
It may not be Xmas, but we're getting blue anyway (considerably more so than usual). This is about as X as we get, so enjoy as we talk about some of our favorite off-color movies and TV shows and what's this? A special guest from an older LEOG line-up you haven't heard from in quite some time? No spoilers here, just click it and…Continue
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 27: Cool Vehicles
As awkward sounding as the title of this week's episode is, the discussion certainly isn't, as we get into the coolest cars and such-like that we've seen in movies, tv, etc. Plus, LEOG regular guests Alan Porter and Brian Salisbury show up to keep the stew fresh. Check…Continue
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 26: Hung-Over
Spill dot Con is over and the LEOG crew had such a good time, we might need an entire week just to recuperate. Stories are told, members are referenced, and the healing process begins. But that's not all! We've also got guest Joe Parsons from Master Pancake Theater and Stagcomedy.com who shoots the shit with us, and hell, why not an extra of the entire…Continue
As you probably know, if you listen to the League of Extremely Ordinary Gentlemen, I am a believer in the supernatural. I’ve been a fan of Paranormal State since its first season, in large part because of the integrity with which the team approaches its investigations. That integrity carries over into the documentary American Ghost Hunter (via Executive Producer/Director Chad Calek, Executive Producer Ryan Buell, and Line Producer Sergey Poberezhny, all…
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 24: Bad Blockbusters and Mary Jo Pehl!
Finally Cyrus manages to deliver, with this week's guest, the great Mary Jo Pehl from Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Cinematic Titanic who schools us all on how this making fun of movies thing is done. Check it..
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 23: Mutants
Okay, well, mainly the X-Men, because now that the entire League has seen "X-Men: First Class", they were chomping at the bit to talk about it. We get into the best and worst runs and characters of the comics as well, and oh, who is that? It's our old friend Brandon from Austin Books and Comics to go head to head with Randy in the comic book corner. Check…Continue
超平凡紳士連盟 : THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Japan
This week we go way off book as our far-flung member Nakato answers some questions all the way from Japan about his home country and their culture, while the LEOG stateside make dick jokes. Check it...
And as a special bonus, since we didn't get to give our…
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 21: Fighting Films
Despite the general tendency of the league to be more lovers than fighters, we're all fans of films where folks throw down. Adding their two cents to the proceedings are two local martial arts teachers: Richard Calione who is also a stuntman, and Janell Smith who is a stunt coordinator and film producer. Check…Continue
THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: Volume 6, Issue 20: The Apocalypse (and beyond)
Join the League one last time before it all starts getting explodey as we discuss the end of the world, as presented in popular entertainment. And for the record, be sure to check out MY favorite representation of such, the amazing audio drama, We're Alive!. Check…Continue
