New Episode of the (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!!

Hey everybody, we’re back! Sorry for the one day delay, Skype issues on recording night pushed us back a day ūüė¶

But we’re here with a brand new, haunted episode for you! The TPMP¬†studios has its share of supernatural activity… Tank and I attempt to ferret it out at the outset, but playing it back, I don’t think we were 100% successful.

We were, however, successful in reviewing “Paranormal Activity 4” and “Alex Cross”, this week’s pair of new releases. After, we launch into our Winter preview. Tank and I take a look at the schedule for the rest of the year, and discuss all the films that 2012 still has to offer us. And what a slate it is… a new Bond film, “Skyfall”, a new Peter Jackson Middle Earth movie, “The Hobbit”, and a new offering from Quentin Tarantino, “Django Unchained”! Plus a slew of other great movies of various size and scope between now and 12/31!

It’s another great episode of (title pending), you owe it to yourself to check it out! You can download it directly, here, or as always, look for us on Stitcher Radio and iTunes by searching for (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!

Paranormal Activity 4

I’m a huge fan of 2007’s “Paranormal Activity”. I thought it brilliantly took the haunted house story out of dusty, dilapidated Victorian mansions and brought it to the suburban development. It was ingenious in¬†the way it¬†preyed on our subconscious fears of the dark and of things that go bump in the night.

“Paranormal Activity 2” served up “More of the same”, but at least it was still served warm. One sequel that plays the same song is completely acceptable by today’s standards.

I thought for certain though that the wheels would come off in the third chapter, but by bringing children into the mix and expanding the mythos, “Paranormal Activity 3” was surprisingly good. Better than the second chapter, in fact.

Unfortunately, with “Paranormal Activity 4”, the series finally seems out of gas. The “scares” are so tired they fail to even rise to the level of “startles”, and the mythology that served as an asset in the previous chapter now feels like a shackle weighing this film down.
