Welcome to The Stone Turntable!!

In this episode, our Hosts turned to one of the ladies in our lives for inspiration and was recommended a movie to watch. We cover Nightcrawler (2014) starring Jake Gyllenhal, Life of Brian (1979) starring John Cleese and the Suicide Room (2011) directed by Jan Komasa.

Wipe the lipstick from your cheek and tell your ladies you love em, because we are going to take a walk through the dark underworld of investigative reporting, the perils of online chatrooms and end on a humorous interpretation of Biblical proportions.

The Stone Turntable starts now (as soon as you click "play").



Warning: Explicit language and sexual themes (blame The Suicide Room).

Welcome to The Stone Turntable!!

This week we pulled an episode out of the Archives to share with you the anthological masterpiece that is Four Rooms, written by Quentin Tarantino, Alexander Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez and Allison Anders.

Each writer wrote the script for each individual room and wove this masterpiece together like skilled quilters, telling the story of Ted the Bellhop whose unbelievable journey through the Mon Signor tale is reminiscient of a modern Odyssey.

Directed by Tarantino and Rodriguez, starring Tim Roth (Ted), Tarantino (Chester), Bruce Willis (Leo), Antonio Banderas, Jennifer Beals and a host of other familiar actors, Four Rooms was released in 1995 and still has the relevance expected from Tarantino's best features.

Grab your luggage, turn down Auld Lang Syne. Put a doctor on standby and prepare to ride on Ted's coat tails as he rides the waves of New Years Eve at Hotel Mon Signor.

This is The Stone Turntable.

 *Explicit Rating: Coarse language/mature content

Four Rooms can be found on Netflix, Amazon Video and iTunes. Soundtrack by Esquivel is also available at iTunes and Amazon Music.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

A movie was made that completely changed the world, the way we look at and set out to make movies. The Star Wars franchise has had a nearly immeasurable influence on so many facets of the entertainment industry it is mind boggling. Dare I suggest it, but its resonant impact is akin to that of the automobile. Star Wars and its characters are as recognizable as family members, friends and foe alike. There are few (if any?) that are unaware of its ubiquitous charm.

This week our hosts set their navicomputer coordinates through a maze of conversation relating to "all things Star Wars".

Join us as we cover mostly Episodes 1-6, briefly discuss comic book and novelizations as well as The Old Republic mmorpg.

Equip your mainhand and make sure you repaired your armor--The Stone Turntable starts now.


May the Force Be With You.

Grab some popcorn.

Everything IS Awesome!!!

Join the cast as they pull on their steel toe boots to wander through The Lego Movie, released in 2014.

This children's movie is also good for adults of any age who either remember buying Legos the first time for their children or those who played with Legos in their youth. Action packed, full of pop culture references, witty humor and a wholesome moral for young and old alike, this film is for all ages.

Set in the universe of Lego realms, the story follows Emmet-an average, everyday construction worker with seemingly little personality or originality to speak of. He gets tangled up in a prophecy that sends him on a journey through not just many of the other realms, but guides him to the "Special"--the key to fulfilling the prophecy.

Starring the voice talents of Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, Chris Pratt, Anthony Daniels, Will Ferrell, Billy Dee Williams and many, many more.

Buckle your five point harnesses: The Stone Turntable starts now.


Our Rating: 7.5/10

Warner Bros. Pictures


The Lego Movie is available in the iTunes store, on and the soundtrack is also available at these vendors.
