40: Kirk Didn’t Really Seem That Smart
Published 31 August 2013 • Hosted by Daniel “Jelly” Farrelly and Gordon McAlpin
Gordon McAlpin - creator of the webcomic Multiplex - fills in for Bean this week to discuss tech and movies: Xbox drops an update to convert Microsoft points to standard currency; Steve Balmer “retires” as CEO of Microsoft; Kickstarter announces that it’s launching in Australia and New Zealand in the not too distant future; Ben Affleck gets cast as Batman in the upcoming Batman/Superman flick, but is that really going to be the biggest issue with that movie?; and we take a look at Jobs the biopic of Steve Jobs’ life that doesn’t necessarily live up to real life.
Meanwhile, Gordon bemoans poor movie logic like the clichéd line “off the charts”, and Jelly posits that The Last Airbender is the worst movie ever made. Also, Batfleck, you guys!
