Hello There! This is Adam Frazier and you are listening to Skull-Face Island, the official movie podcast of Geeks of Doom! As always Iâ€™m joined by Cloud City’s Ice Cream Maker Guy, David Allen… and the Lobot to my Lando Calrissian, producer Tim Grant.
Today on the Show: Weâ€™ll discuss Ang Leeâ€™s latest film, Life of Pi, and boot-up the Geek-O-Matic TeleFax for all the latest news on Star Trek, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and the future of director Quentin Tarantinoâ€™s career. We’ll also give your our Top Five Obscure Video Game Film Adaptations!
With the recent release of Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II, we decided to explore the world of video game adaptations. Sure, I think most gamers would love to see live-action film versions of The Legend of Zelda, Halo, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid – but weâ€™re not here to rehash the dreams of hardcore gamers and Nintendo fanboys. You wonâ€™t hear us pitch a Pixar-esque Super Mario Bros. animated movie (though that would be awesome), or a big-budget Metroid flick (please make that!). We’ve got some obscure, deep cuts from the 8-bit days for you this week!

If you missed our previous transmissions, let me explain how this works. In the year 1991, US Flight 1313 experienced a mysterious, magnetic anomaly somewhere over the South Pacific. Engines failed, pilots cursed and prayed to their Gods, and three boys (thatâ€™s us!) washed ashore on Skull-Face Island, which of course is an ISLAND in the SHAPE of a SKULL! How cool is that!?
After exploring the dark interior of the island with machetes and bullwhips, we found an old communications array. Hereâ€™s the weird thing: it still works. Not only does it work, this thing is like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Video on Demand, and Apple TV combined â€“ itâ€™s got all the latest movies and television showsâ€¦
