issuu podcast 79One thing that Gerri and Eugenia go on about a little is why is Sci Fi not mainstream? Every big blockbuster movie in 2012 that has made millions has Sci Fi/Fantasy concepts in it! The Avengers, Skyfall (yes Bond is Sci Fi we don’t have the gadgets that he has yet!), The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, The Amazing Spider Man, even Brave (magic), Ted (talking teddy), Twilight movies, Madagascar 3 (talking animals) just keep looking down the list at Box Office Mojo to see! So why don’t these movies that make all the money get recognised, why don’t the actors win an Oscar?? The most popular stories are those that we have been reading for over 80 years, yes some of our super heroes are close to reaching a century and who said that senior cits are not interesting. The “best” movie winner at the Oscars in 2012 only made 10% of The Avengers take! However, Gerri and Eugenia discuss the point in this episode as well as that maybe they don’t win because there is more attention given to the special effects than there is to the story being told! Could we tell the stories better or are they just “Kapow, Wham, and Zap?” Do you agree with them or do you think that all the special effects are what bring in the crowd? Gerri and Eugenia get to speak with the only female warrior from Thor the irrepressible Jaimie Alexander who plays Sif. They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Expo http://www.supanova.com.au for allowing them to spend time with Jaimie.

issuu podcast 69In this episode Gerri and Eugenia get into cartoons. A genre we all love no matter what age we are! We all have a favourite from Saturday morning cartoons and little kids of today will have one they will remember and no matter what, will always watch it when it shows up again. So, which cartoon are they talking about? Ben 10 of course! Ben 10 has graced the TV of many of us either as a watcher or by osmosis when the kids have it on the TV and it has been around for at least 7 years and like Harry Potter you grow up with it. Gerri and Eugenia discuss the quite adult themes set within the show, the expectations of the hero and the doing for the sake of doing and not reward. One of the great characters in Ben 10 is the calming Grandpa Max and this is who they have on the show in this episode. Paul Eiding is not only the voice of Grandpa Max but also many other cartoon characters like Preceptor from the Transformers and Gerri and Eugenia have a great interview with him. If you want to know what it is like to be a voice actor then this is the podcast for you. Gerri and Eugenia thank Bill and Adele from Armageddon Expo New Zealand for the interview with Paul http://www.armageddonexpo.com
