The LonelyReviewer Show: Episode 6: To Boldly Go…

lr-Podcast-ArtworkIn Episode 6 of the LonelyReviewer show, we boldly go, where no man has gone before…sort of. In this new episode Justin and I discuss the new Star Trek film, and somehow manage to completely avoid spoiling it! We also talk a bit about JJ Abrams, and our thoughts about what’s on the horizon for him.

Take a listen, there are two chances to win REDBOX codes in the show, and, as a THIRD way to win, if you comment below, you might ALSO win a free redbox rental. I’ve got a ton of codes, so you have a REALLY good chance to win.

Check out this new film from the founder/editor of Lonelyreviewer.com, Vatche Arabian. Obviously there’s a bias here so I can’t offer my own opinion, but check it out – and let us know what you think!

Vatche’s Action Trailer

Vatche’s Action Trailer


So, of course, besides running Lonely Reviewer.com, I’m also a filmmaker in my own right. And I recently participated in an fake trailer contest here in Boston, at the Brattle Theatre. The subject was “Labor Day,” and I created this fake trailer with a vague story and a lot of visual effects. Our video won the competition!

The sound was cut by Gregg Swiatlowski, and the voice over artist in the end is Jim Jakala, who does many amazing great television and radio commercial spots. It also stars other LR bloggers, Brandin, Ben, and Phil!

Thank you everyone for your help, and enjoy the trailer!

HBO to Broadcast Inaugural Opening Ceremony

HBO to Broadcast Inaugural Opening Ceremony

Cable giant HBO has announced that it will air the opening ceremony of President Barack Obama’s inauguration.  HBO first aired the opening ceremony in 1993, when Bill Clinton became president.  Non-HBO subscribers were upset that they were unable to see performances by Bob Dylan and Diana Ross.  However, this time, HBO will make their signal avaiable to any cable or satellite subscriber, regardless of if they get HBO.

As an aside, Lonely Reviewer editor-in-chief Vatche is embarking on an on-line and documentary venture, traveling from Boston to Washington DC for the Obama inaugration.  He’ll be talking with people along the way about their hopes for the future.

You can follow Vatche’s progress on-line and he’ll be posting throughout his trip.  He’ll also be taking the footage and cutting together a documentary about his journey.  Check it out his Road Trip for Obama web-site.  It’s pretty cool.  -Sam
