Brian and Johnny Neill reunite for an all new (and possibly all nude) edition of Digital Noise!

Full disclosure, they’re likely not nude. However, Brian laments why Magic Mike XXL is his biggest disappointment of the year while Johnny Neill springboards from the discussion of Tomorrowland to lambaste the ever-living crap out of Robert Downey Jr!


They also share their utter joy over Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special, try to bury the Tremors franchise once and for all, and offer a very unusual giveaway.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Brian and Johnny: This time it’s personal.

    • Johnny Neill

      It’s always personal! We open up on these shows!

  • dark knight fan

    The only way Johnny will see Magic Mike XXL, if it had Stephen Amell. I know how much you love Arrow.

    • Johnny Neill

      I do. You do too. Admit it.

      • dark knight fan

        I do like Arrow, Season 4 is going the best.

        • Johnny Neill

          I think anyone who watches it from the beginning, with a strong sympathy for literary metaphors, will fall in love with Arrow. It has a great cast, and all of the characters have their own weird reasons for doing what they do. It has a kind of dream state logic, the way LOST did, that makes up for the inherent silliness of super heroes, and the stunts are completely kick ass. Last week when Speedy slid down that cable, and the cable bent with her weight on it, was one of the coolest things I have seen in a long while. Cheap, gravity based stunt work beats cgi special effects a thousand times over for me.

    Another Brian and Johnny episode! I also saw both Aladdin and Bram Stoker’s Dracula when they came out. Funny story about Dracula, though…

    I was 9 when this came out and my father and I were into the Universal monster movies. We were going through all the classics and my father even showed me one of his favorite movies Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein. So we were eagerly going to the theatre thinking this was going to be like Bela Lugosi’s…boy, were we wrong!

    I think the point where we both realized this was going to be something different was the scene with the Brides of Dracula. Imagine being 9 years old and this really sexy scene comes up and your DAD is sitting next to you…not a moment to be getting turned on!

    We both thought it was okay when it was all said and done. I’ve gone back to it later and appreciate it for certain aspects like Oldman and Hopkins. I’m glad they had Arthur Holmwood, Quincy Morris and Dr. Seward in it where other adaptations mix or omit them. Reeves and Ryder…eh…not the best parts of this.

    • Johnny Neill

      I am always glad when someone enjoys something. Mostly always. Dracula didn’t leave me irritated like Tomorrowland did, it just felt like a big, dumb waste of time. That 70’s one with Frank Langella did the same thing – Langella: From Sexy Dracula to Angry Nixon in 30 years! I think Dracula is a better idea/character than the story about him.

      • Jose A. Rivera

        Dracula is a hard one to crack. For me, my Dracula is Christopher Lee because I love the Hammer stuff.

        • Johnny Neill

          I haven’t seen it in forever, but the 1970’s CBS TV movie of Dracula with Jack Palance was the one that I really loved. He just looked like an Eastern European Count who could eat your face and lament a lost love at the same time.

          • Jose A. Rivera

            I think Gene Colan also based his version of Dracula on Palance’s in his Tomb of Dracula run.

          • Johnny Neill

            That’s interesting! Gene Colon was a great. His drawings were all very real-life drawing sketchy. I don’t remember the particulars of that Dracula, except for Jack Palance being great in it. He had a cop show at or around that time called Bronc. Or Bronk. He was just always a badass.

  • Sean Saffari

    Great episode, guys. Really loved the nude aspect of the show. Is the audience supposed to be nude while listening, as well?

    • Johnny Neill

      Thanks, Sean! I always assumed everyone was in some degree of undress while listening.

  • Neil Kelly

    Names for the new podcast;

    “In the Nip”
    “Centrefold Movies”
    “Digital Dong Delights”
    “The Soggy Disc”

    Okay, I’ll stop, and I’ll never speak of this again.

    • Johnny Neill

      Try “Put On The Black-Out Glasses”

  • Darkman220

    I would have to agree with Johnny on lost but I agree with Brian on Tomrrowland

    • Johnny Neill

      I thought Brian and I agreed on Tomorrowland? Oh… God to hear someone agree with me on LOST. That was a really special ending for me.

  • Jose A. Rivera

    Also, I’ll say this, Brian, Tremors 2 is pretty good, too. Anything after that including the TV series is hit or miss.

  • Ryan Naughton

    Ah, Brain and Johnny. Come for the laughs. Stay for the intelligent disscusions.

    • Johnny Neill

      Oh, please do!

    I’m going to have to come in in defense of Bram stokers Dracula. Note I have seen every vampire movie made, which includes interview with the vampire; which is a way more gay vampire movie than this one. I’ve seen Nosferatu and belas dracula and even Love at first bite. I can safely say that Francis coppolas version is my favorite interpretation of Dracula. I loved the visuals, I loves that it was all practical and to me that choice is aesthetics is one makes every frame look like a painting. I think oldman plays the best Vlad. Its suppose to be over the top, theater has always been over the top, if it was subdued, it would be laughable in the case of being serious in the subject matter of a dead man with fangs drinking blood. The only downside was keanu reeves performance, but I paid no mind to it because I was too busy looking at Garys performance, which I think is top notch. I hear its a film of certain taste, but I think those are the better and more entertaining movies. What ever you guys hated, I really enjoyed. I don’t consider myself a film aficionado, but I know what I like. I truly recommend this film for any fan of the vampire genre itself. I can’t tell you to like the film, but there are the fans out there and I’m one of them.

    • Tristan Milner

      Preach it. I feel a lot of so called “critics” hate on this movie just because of Keanu Reeves and fail to see the rest of the movie which is fantastic!

      • Johnny Neill

        Keanu Reeves was bad, but he didn’t ruin the movie for me. It was a whole package deal of nit liking it. I like a lot of movies everyone else hates, and vice versa. I had a conversation this morning with a friend who saw 99 Homes, she loved it, I didn’t, because we both got different stories out of the same movie. We both loved Michael Shannon in it, though. I am glad you enjoyed it, Tristan!

    • Johnny Neill

      I am glad to get a defender. I wish I would have enjoyed it as much as you did, Ruben. I don’t know what a film aficianado title requires, but if you sat through one of our shows, you obviously have some dedication.
