ICON VS. ICON PRESENTS: Acid Pop Cult Podcast – Episode 153: Cold Turkey

acidpopcult-podcast-2015

This week on the Acid Pop Cult Podcast, Jeremy and Jason are ready to take on the issues of today. They start with a look inside the twisted mind of Jeremy Morrison as he makes the transition from veteran chainsmoker to just another young guy with an oral fixation. That’s right, JMO kicks the butts and hilarity ensues. Jason brings us up to speed on the happenings over at Icon Vs. Icon, more specifically, an interview with the lovely and talented Agnes Olech of ’True Detective.’ Talk quickly turns to Josh Trank’s somehow controversial ‘Fantasic Four’ movie and the fanboys and critics who have been bashing it long before it even finished filming. The duo examine the latest developments from producer/director Adi Shankar. Shankar is the man behind the Marvel Bootleg Universe and shorts like, Venom: Truth in Journalism, and Power/Rangers. Most importantly, they believe he is the chosen one who can swoop in and turn the superhero genre on it’s head with his upcoming feature, ‘Gods and Secrets.’ There are two solid Pick’s of the Week for this week’s episode. Jeremy leads the charge with a look at Comedy Central’s ‘Another Period,’ a series created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome; starring Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Brett Gelman, Christina Hendricks and more. Jason takes us 20 years back in time with Shout! Factory’s release of the ‘Hackers: 20th Anniversary Edition.’ It’s a jam packed show that will make you want to smoke or hack the planet. Either way, the future is in your hands.Download the latest episode of Acid Pop Cult on iTunes!

‘Hackers: 20th Anniversary Edition’ To Be Unleashed This Summer From Shout! Factory

‘Hackers: 20th Anniversary Edition’ To Be Unleashed This Summer From Shout! Factory

Hack The Planet!

Hack The Planet!

“This Is Our World Now… The World of The Electron And The Switch, The Beauty of The Baud.” — The Mentor, “The Hacker’s Manifesto”

A highly stylized cyberpunk exploitation fantasy, Hackers is a joyous ride through ‘90s cyberpunk subculture. On August 18th, 2015, this riveting look at an intriguing world makes its Blu-ray debut with Shout! Factory’s release of Hackers: 20th Anniversary Edition. Fans who pre-order their copies from ShoutFactory.com will also receive an exclusive poster, while supplies last.

The Hackers: 20th Anniversary Edition also includes the brand new bonus feature The Keyboard Cowboys – a 3-part documentary looking back at Hackers including all-new interviews with director Iain Softley, cast members Fisher Stevens, Matthew Lillard and Penn Jillette, visual effects artist Peter Chiang, wardrobe designer Roger Burton, hacking consultants Nicholas Jarecki and Emmanuel Goldstein and film critic Mark Kermode.

Capturing the anarchistic spirit of early cyberculture, Hackers became an underground hit, inspiring music and fashion for the emerging culture and has even been hailed as prophetic in its use of computers and hacking.

With a pulsating electronica score by Simon Boswell that includes songs from The Prodigy, Orbital and Underworld, Hackers helped launch the careers of Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie (Girl, Interrupted) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary), and features Penn Jillette (Penn & Teller), Jesse Bradford (Bring it On, Romeo + Juliet), Matthew Lillard (She’s All That, Scooby Doo), Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme), Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives) and Marc Anthony.

Synopsis: While practicing the tricks of the trade, a neophyte “hacker” accomplishes the nearly impossible: he hacks the highly secured computer at the Ellingson Mineral Corporation. But in doing so, he unknowingly taps into a high-tech embezzling scheme masked by a computer virus with the potential to destroy the world’s ecosystem! And when the young hacker and his pals are targeted for the crime, the group must launch a massive cyberspace attack—one that will hopefully clear their names and prevent ecological disaster.

Hackers: 20th Anniversary Edition Bonus Features:

· The Keyboard Cowboys – A 3-part documentary looking back at Hackers including brand-new interviews with director Iain Softley, cast members Fisher Stevens, Matthew Lillard and Penn Jillette, visual effects artist Peter Chiang, wardrobe designer Roger Burton, hacking consultants Nicholas Jarecki and Emmanuel Goldstein and film critic Mark Kermode.
