Transformers: The Last Knight Reactions

June 22, 2017

A little change of format: Russ and Zach talk about their reactions to Transformers: The Last Knight while sitting in the car immediately after having seen the film.

Why in the car? Well, it IS a Transformers movie, after all...!

We also have some nods to Every Frame a Painting's episode on "Bayhem," which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2THVvshvq0Q

And to Lindsay Ellis's ongoing series on Michael Bay, The Whole Plate, the most recent of which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhmyIb5CF9s

The Netflix Algorithm Sucks

June 7, 2017

In which Russ and Zach go to the heart of why the Emerald City Video Podcast exists, and explore how terrible Netflix, Amazon, and other digital video services are at actually recommending movies you might actually want to watch.

A rant.

Wonder Woman/Supergirl

June 5, 2017

It’s another superhero episode!

This time, Russ is joined by longtime ECV employee Erica Ladd — a newcomer to the podcast — to talk about Wonder Woman, out in theaters now, and Supergirl, a relic of 1984 that might be better left as a fond memory.

Since Russ is footing the bill for hosting and had to buy some new editing software recently so that he can make all this magic happen quickly and quietly, we’ll probably put together some kind of Patreon so that you can sponsor the show in exchange for swag soon enough. For now, though, if you want to contribute anything and everything, you can do so at Paypal.me/emeraldcityvideo.

Five for Five: RIVERDALE

March 29, 2017

Following on the heels of the two-part crossover between ECV and Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast, Zach and Russ took it easy to talk...well...Riverdale again.

Except this time it's a five-for-five, and instead of Deidre and Laney Rob a Train, it's for Riverdale itself, meaning that we're talking a lot of TV instead of movies.

You can hear the first part of the crossover here and the second part here.

Since Russ is footing the bill for hosting and had to buy some new editing software recently so that he can make all this magic happen quickly and quietly, we’ll probably put together some kind of Patreon so that you can sponsor the show in exchange for swag soon enough. For now, though, if you want to contribute anything and everything, you can do so at Paypal.me/emeraldcityvideo.

Anyone who contributes $10 and up will get an 8”x10”, framed original photo of Pop’s Chock’Lit Shoppe, taken by Russ Burlingame during one of our visits to the set of Riverdale.

We've also put together a RedBubble Store at https://www.redbubble.com/people/archiedigest/ where you will be able to get t-shirts, stickers, cell phone cases, and other goods inspired by Riverdaleand our show. Currently there's just one design -- #SheriffKiller -- but there's more to come in the next few days.

Lastly, you can check out a new tie-in comic Russ wrote for The Belko Experiment -- in theaters now -- at http://tinyurl.com/belkocomic. The story is set within the narrative of the film, which comes from director Greg McLean and writer James Gunn (Guardians of the GalaxySlither).

March 25, 2017

You can hear the first part here.

If You Liked JOHN WICK, Try These…

February 14, 2017

It's not a five for five deal, but it's something else that you might remember from the days of brick and mortar video stores being a commonplace thing: "If you like this, try this..."

We remember back when we used to have to fill out these little employee recommendation cards for major new releases, and here, we get to do it all over again...but on the internet. And with audio.

Also, I think we forgot to introduce ourselves, so bear in mind this episode is Russ and Zach.

Anyway, with John Wick 2: Electric Bugaloo in theaters now, we figured it was as good a time as any to make some suggestions for movies you can watch if you really enjoyed John Wick.

Also, Russ and Zach both have new podcasts. Check 'em out here:

The Insurgency USA Podcast with Zach Roberts

Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast with Russ Burlingame, Craig Byrne, and Chris Hayner
