96 - Their Biggest Fight Ever

This week your friends Count Vardulon and The Divemistress have their biggest fight--a real knock down drag out.  Worse still, they're arguing about The Walking Dead.  Since it's American Thanksgiving, the Count and The DM present two real turkeys.  Seriously, you should be thankful they watched and reviewed this stuff so you don't have to.

Poll results: At the time of recording, the poll was a tie between Leprechaun and TCM.  Leprechaun was leading for a short while, thanks to our friends at Movie Scum, but then someone else voted for TCM. There's now a tie for second place between Hellraiser and The Omen.  Still, the Count and The DM are forced to choose between Leprechaun and TCM for their next "orama" show.

94 - Not a Qualified Recommendation

It's Nicholas Brendon appreciation week on TheAvod.  Your friends Count Vardulon and the Divemistress take a look at 2.5 films that feature Xander Harris, and recommend you watch only one.  Tune in to hear the Count sort of admit to being wrong about something, and listen out for the DM's confession that she doesn't actually know anything about zombies.

Poll results: The question was what's your favourite thing about the Saw franchise.  Half of you chose the traps, and the other, better half chose Costas Mandylor.

93 - Crazier Than a Bag of Cats

This week on TheAvod, Count Vardulon manages to tie together three very different movies with the theme "what the hell was that?"  Note, he chose all three movies this week, too.  Japanese film, Like a Dragon, turns out to be largely unintelligible unless you've played the Yakuza video games.  The long-awaited sequel to The Sword and the Sorcerer could benefited from more time spent working on the script, and Saw 3D is exactly what you would expect from a Saw movie--full of puzzling, plot inconsistencies, and the worst-acted scene in movie history.   Remember Jem?  Well, the DM brings her up in a conversation about Halloween.  The Count talks about a creepy Alan Moore comic, and proves that he's just as much of a Star Wars geek as the Divey. 

*Note, when the Count says "at the end of Empire Strikes Back," he really means "at the beginning of Return of the Jedi".

Poll results: Most of you (62%) would rather watch deplorable movie Ghost Ship than sit through either a sequel that destroys all continuity or a remake that fails to capture everything you loved about the original.  Some of you (37%) would prefer to watch a prequel that creates plot holes than Ghost Ship.
