Geekscape 606: 'Iké Boys' Director Eric McEver!

The anime and manga live action love letter is one of the most charming films of the year!

We're talking kaiju, anime, filmmaking, Japanese culture, using French overs, personal paleontology and more with 'Iké Boys' director Eric McEver! We catch up with Eric after 'Iké Boys' Fantastic Fest premiere, talk about putting the film together, growing up in a small town and how it shaped his storytelling, integrating his love of Japanese Kaiju and giant robot films into the movie and obviously some Farscape... since I hear Eric is a Farscape fan (and even put Farscape's Ben Bowder in the film)! Geekscape is championing this movie in a big way so listen to our conversation and find out why!

The Geekscape 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' Special!

Martial Arts master Shang-Chi has finally arrived in the MCU with this weekend's 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings'! And with a story full of fights, Marvel easter eggs and kung fu fantasy, was it everything we'd hoped it would be? Did Simu Lu step up to the task (easy answer: yes)? What about Awkwafina and legendary actors Tony Leung and Michelle Yeoh (easy answers: of course)? How does this story lead into the rest of the MCU? What Marvel comics stories did it pull from (it was cool to see Razor-Fist show up!)? And will we ever see Morris again? Ian Kerner joins us to break it all down on a brand new Geekscape Special!

Geekscape Spotlight: Nick Scown, Co-Director of 'Too Soon: Comedy After 9/11'

Nick Scown returns to the show with a fantastic new film that pays tribute to 9/11!

We all remember where we were on 9/11... but in the weeks following, do we remember how we felt? And maybe more importantly, did we remember when the laughter returned to our lives? Did it feel like it was "too soon"? Looking towards the 20th anniversary, join me and one of my closest friends, filmmaker Nick Scown, as we talk about his new film 'Too Soon: Comedy After 9/11', premiering next week from Vice TV. Featuring comedians and actors like David Cross, Marc Maron, Janeane Garofalo, Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick and many more, the film explores the return of comedy after 9/11 and asks the question, when are the jokes "too soon"?
