Ryan Hurley Visits Assembly of Geeks

This week’s Assembly of Geeks episode “The New Thor, Captain America & Turtles That Are Also Ninja” is posted. Ryan Hurley from the Turtle Power Podcast joins the Assembly. I met Ryan at the RebelForce Radio meet-up at Star Wars Weekends. (That’s him dressed as Indiana Jones.) He talks about how RebelForce Radio inspired him to podcast. What I loved about this episode was his insight into the transformation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle script. He offers some great insights for Star Wars fans as we venture into the Disney movie age.

From the show notes:

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is just weeks away from coming out.  We thought it was a good time to check our enthusiasm levels and figure out what we will/won’t see in the film.  Ryan Hurley from the Turtle Power Podcast presents his thoughts to the geek assembly.

We also examine the news and responses to the announcements of a new Thor and a new Captain America. Other topics include the voice of the Star Wars Rebels Inquisitor, the idea of a Frozen/Once Upon A Time stand-alone show, extra Wampas in The Empire Strikes Back, details on the Agent Carter TV series and Screenrant’s top 10 good movies that were ruined by bad endings.

We manage to cover all of this as we try to get ready for Batman Day.

You can also subscribe to the show on iTunes.

The statistics of female directors working in Hollywood are pretty grim. It’s a combination of sexism and risk-aversion (not really, just sexism) that keeps them out of the top spots in film-making. . . . → Read More: How Indie Directors Have Changed Hollywood
