The Main Damie Podcast - Mark’s Rant Edition

August 8, 2017

On this on usually rant-y episode of The Main Damie podcast, our fearless trio discusses everything from professional wrestling to San Diego Comic-con. But there is something off about this episode.

We start with Mark venting his frustration over the most recent WWE pay-per-view in Philadelphia. He seems unusually upset about the evening he spent at the Wells Fargo Center. After, we are joined by Dan, Mark poses the question that leaves the entire group in shock.

Next, we take a trip to Video Game Corner, where Mark again vents on Walmart canceling all "pre-orders" of the SNES classic. And touches on the newly released wrestling game Fire Pro, and why it is different. He also gives an update on his experience with Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.

We take a turn and shift our attention to discuss Dunkirk, and Anthony's review. We find out that Mark disagrees slightly with him giving the movie at 10/10. This is when Dan and Anthony grow concerned about Mark well-being, and why he seems rather upset this entire episode.

We finish up by discussing everything that we saw and read during San Diego Comic-Con. We mix in DC, Marvel, and everything else in the world of movies and TV that was revealed at the famous event.

Thanks again for listening and we hope you come back next week to find out if Mark finally reveals what was bothering him.

The Main Damie - Casting Carnage, Mayweather vs McGregor, and Ron Howard Directs the Han Solo Spinoff Movie

June 26, 2017

On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, Anthony and Dan wake Mark up from his post-E3 coma to discuss comic book movies, sports, and, of course, the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

During our catching up segment, Mark reveals the worst idea for a game show he's ever heard. He concludes that since it will air over the summer on America's most watched network, Dan had something to do with it. Our fearless trio moves on from this abomination of TV, and begins a discussion about Spider-Man, Venom, Carnage, and all things in the web-slinger's universe. They dabble in some fantasy casting, and discuss why Spider-Man's villains are the best in comics.

For the first time -- I think -- in the history of the podcast, there's a discussion of a sporting event that is not wrestling. Our infallible threesome dive deep into the upcoming Mayweather-McGregor fight, and somehow the conversation turns into what they wouldn't do for $127 million. Let's just say, we learn some things about our Damiers.

They finished with Mark's recap of you E3 in Video Game Corner, and a tribute to probably the best man to wear the Bat Cowl. Obviously, no offense to Michael Keaton and Christian Bale, but only one of the actors to portray the Dark Knight was also the mayor of a Rhode Island town.

The Main Damie Podcast - Video Game Corner E3 Discussion, Wonder Woman, and Television Talk

June 13, 2017

Welcome back, faithful listeners. Your damies are back with a brand new edition, complete with video games, wedding talk, and even a Wonder Woman review from Dan Aquino. 

We start off with Mark and Dan waiting for Anthony, as they discuss what they’ve been up to: Dan’s still in the middle of wedding prep while Mark is getting ready to throw some axes.

From there, Mark takes Dan deep into Video Game Corner. As this was originally recorded last week, Mark gives his takes on the impending E3 press conference and what he expected from each big name participating in the event.

Anthony arrives midway through Video Game Corner, despite Skype’s best efforts, just in time to talk television. Mark’s been watching Riverdale, because of course he is, while Anthony makes some bold statements on where The Leftovers places among his favorite TV dramas of all-time. Dan is still watching Fargo, despite it not living up to previous seasons in his eyes, while Anthony is hoping it all comes together at the end.

From there, Dan gives us a quick review of Wonder Woman before he has to depart. On the whole Dan thought it is the best film in the DCEU, but feels the hype has gotten a little too big. (For more, listen to the show)

When Dan leaves, Mark and Anthony circle back to television. Anthony’s been bingeing Lost for the first time, killed some time with a revisit to the US version of The Office, and struggled to stick with Season 1 of Twin Peaks, which turns into a discussion of how much David Lynch is too much.

As always, thanks for all the listens. If you have any questions or comments, you can reach us at themaindamie@gmail.com, on Twitter, and on Facebook. Don’t forget to subscribe to us on iTunes and give us a rating. It helps get our visibility up!

The Main Damie Podcast - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 REVIEW!

May 19, 2017

On this episode of The Main Damie podcast, we return from a busy few weeks to discuss the only thing that matters, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and as usual, we spend more time on it than we anticipate. 

Before we jump into our main topic, we discuss what we have done since our last podcast, including celebrating the wedding of friends of the site, Nicole and Tom, and also take a trip to Video Game Corner. During the discussions, we learn than Dan doesn't like to be forced to dance, and Mark is upset that he won't be able to kill fashion moguls with fire axes anymore. 

We spend the second half-hour taking about Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and keep it mostly spoiler-free, but we highly recommend heeding our warning near the end. We finish the topic by going deep into spoilers, and discussing how we think the events of this film fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thank you for listening, and join us next time when Mark discusses what he expects from E3, and what it may mean for the rest of the year during Video Game Corner's preview of the marquee event.

The Main Damie Podcast - The Fate of the Furious Review and Trailer Reactions

April 18, 2017

On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, we reunite the family as Dan joins us to discuss everything from trailers to the newest Fast and Furious movie. We promise never to turn our backs on this family, unless you disrespect Pacific Rim, then Mark will politely ask you to 'cash him ousside'.

We open the show by updating you on our lives over the past few weeks, and we've done a lot of adulting; Dan is in the process of selling a house, Mark just leased a new car, and Anthony learned how to install a light switch. These situations run the spectrum from painless to frustrating, and only one of them included an electric shock.

Our opening topic deals with the many trailers that have been released in the last few weeks, and what impact they had on our interest level. The discussion starts with the first teaser for Star Wars Episode 8, and we transition into the new trailers from Marvel and DC. We also may or may not have made a plea for Chris Hemsworth and/or The Rock to officiate Dan's upcoming wedding. Let's just say the trailers topic had a few tangents.

Next we take a quick spin, or drift if you will, by Video Game Corner. Mark discusses his opinions on the restrictive Persona Five streaming rules that came down from Atlus, and why it is bad for the exposure of the game. He also quickly discusses the recently released specs for the Xbox Scorpio, which made the system almost a full-step past the current Xbox One.

We finish the episode talking about family, and not just any family, but Vin Diesel, The Rock and the rest of the Fast and Furious crew. This can only mean that Mark went to the theater, saw The Fate of the Furious and needed to talk about it. While it didn't surpass the last three movies, this installment did enough to make it an enjoyable time. In the rankings of Fast and Furious movies, the 8th one ranks about the middle of the pack, and if you're curious of Mark's rankings, stay till the end and you'll get the definitive breakdown of the series, and an extremely hot take.

The Main Damie Podcast - Beauty and the Beast REVIEW, Power Rangers, and Conspiracy Theories

March 28, 2017

On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, we are short one Dan Aquino as he covers his all-time favorite sport, college basketball. Mark and Anthony soldier on without him, and cover everything from Power Rangers to conspiracy theories. We spent too much time on one of these topics; I'll let you guess which one.

Mark starts the show discussing his three-hour trip back to his childhood while watching the Twitch marathon of Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. As usual, he dives too deep into the way the episodes are produced, and he shares his thoughts about the show's quality. Anthony joins Mark on this nostalgia trip as they discuss Power Ranger toys, how long they watched the series, and how Mark didn't own the movie on VHS. *Ron Howard voiceover* He did.

At this point, we transition ever so smoothly into our main topic: the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Mark and Anthony, who saw this movie at two completely different theaters with two completely different sets of people (we swear!), discuss whether the remake lives up to the animated movie, and if it's worthy of being this generation is Beauty in the Beast. They also spent some time on the controversy surrounding Josh Gad's character and why it wasn't such a big deal. Oh, and Anthony really didn't like a certain former Star Wars actor's performance in this film.

We take a quick trip to Video Game Corner, and discuss the failed launch of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Mark theorizes that it may have been rushed so that it would release before the end of the fiscal year, even though it probably needed at least six more months of production. We also update the sales figures for the Nintendo Switch, and how it's currently on a Wii-like trajectory. Despite early evidence, Mark believes that there's no way it ever matches the Wii's lifetime sales (101 Million), and he believes it would be a victory for Nintendo if it only passes GameCube's sales (21 Million).

The final topic needs very little set up because discussing it would spoil what we talk about. The topic is conspiracy theories: those that we believe, and those that we find most fascinating. Mark brings up a long-held grudge in his family against Christopher Walken, and Anthony has a trio of theories that he quite enjoys. We would love to hear your favorite conspiracy theories, and whether you actually believe them or not.

We will return next episode with the biggest March Madness fan we know, Dan, and hopefully Mark will spend 25 minutes previewing The Fate of the Furious (it's about family, you know). Hope you enjoy the episode and we will see you in two weeks!

The Main Damie Podcast - Logan SPOILERS! Plus Nintendo Switch and Childhood Memories

March 13, 2017

On this edition of The Main Damie podcast, our lovable trio discusses everything from remembering the time that Goldberg first won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship to why it was awesome that Logan finally was allowed to chop off limbs.

We begin this episode with a throwback to previous topics where we discussed something random that really has nothing to do with video games, movies, or comic books. This time, Mark was curious about what random fact do you remember as clearly as if it happened yesterday. He discusses his 13th birthday (he mistakenly says 12th in the podcast) in which he witnessed Goldberg finally beat Hollywood Hogan for the World Heavyweight Championship, and celebrated with his neighbor. Anthony, with only about 15 minutes of preparation, remembered the first night that he saw a rated R movie, and the exact Simpsons episode that aired that night too.

Our trip down Memory Lane brings right to Video Game Corner, and our biweekly look in the world video games. Mark begins this segment by discussing the recent release of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Nintendo Switch, which for the most part has been smooth, but it has had some rather unique issues. He also reveals our intention to expand our Twitch streaming and YouTube presence since we are now fully capable of doing both without worry.

As we leave Video Game Corner, we meet Dan and begin our long discussion about Logan. As we warn in the podcast, this discussion is spoiler heavy as we give our thoughts on this terrific movie. Since our discussion took almost half of the podcast, we would say the movie is definitely worth seeing. Without getting into any spoilers here, it is the most excited the three of us have been after seeing a movie. There's no contrary opinion; it is a unanimous decision that Logan is not only one of the best comic book movies in recent years but in general, a good movie regardless of genre. Editor’s Note: You can read our Logan review HERE as well.

We thank you for listening, and hopefully next time we will be as excited about our topics as this one, but there's a better chance we will return to our cynical nature. It's obviously why you love us.
