Episode 75 of Upon Further Review!

We’ve made it to our diamond anniversary (no, not us personally!), and to celebrate we’re going big this episode–big games, toys, and movies–in Episode 75 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we briefly talk Olympics and platinum medals (who knew?) before getting into the reviews: first, we walk the path of the shadows (so to speak) with our review of Assassin’s Creed II; second, we confess our undying affection for the old classic, Legos; and finally, we go planet (and native) side as we take a closer look at Avatar.  As always, we appreciate your continued interest in the show, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Reviewed in this show:

Assassin’s Creed II

    I don’t think Dan Brown gets credit for the whole Catholic church taking over the world genre.

    I haven’t seen the movie, but the thing I find interesting about Avatar is all the different ways people seem to be interpreting it. I heard on NPR that the government in China may be pushing theaters to pull the movie early because they feel it supports land owners against gov’t forced evictions. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=123541625

    I went to see “Avatar”. I couldn’t rate it because I liked it despite not liking any single element of it. I don’t like action movies. I thought the religion was ridiculous. I didn’t like the scifi elements. And yet, I liked it. Probably a solid 6 out of 10.

    Shara: Maybe, but he gets credit for seemingly everything else, even when people claim someone else should get the credit first (he’s beaten back several plagiarism charges over the last few years)! Interesting about Avatar–it certainly seems like it gets people talking regardless of where they stand on the merits of the movie.

    DI: Yeah, we didn’t think it was bad–just not the genre defining film some have suggested, that’s all. Good to hear from you, as always!
