We have The Girlfriend Experience with Sasha Grey, porn star. Klonoa brings platforming back to the Wii. Pre-E3 previews of Brutal Legend and Dark Void. Plus, 2 classic Kurt Busiek/Alex Ross comics!
This week in Movies:
Alex, Dan, and Jeff take a brief detour before the onslaught of big-budget summer blockbusters to discuss the latest experimental film from director Steven Soderbergh, The Girlfriend Experience. Mostly improvised, about high-priced prostitution, and starring a porn star - is it high art or a meandering mess?
What was the best summer for movies ever? Cinematical thinks it was the summer of 1984. The guys are shocked by how many classic films of their childhood were released in a single 3-month period!
This week in Video Games:
Namco has released a new version of one of their old PS1 platforming franchises on the Wii. Alex, Dan, and Jeff miss those old-school 2D platformers. Does Klonoa capture the magic and simple fun that made them great?
Pre-E3, the guys have had a chance to visit a few gaming publishers and get some previews of some of the most exciting fall games. Topping the discussion this week are Dark Void from Capcom, and Brutal Legend from EA.
This week in Comics:
Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross have teamed to create some of the most interesting, personal looks at the superhero genre ever to hit trade paperback. Alex, Dan, and Jeff take a look at 2 of their most popular works, Marvels and Astro City

The Totally Rad Show is Revision3's explosion of movie, video game, TV, and comics news and reviews. TRS was born in the depths of geek culture, at an epic game of Dungeons and Dragons in 2006. Alex Albrecht, host of Revision3's Diggnation, and Dan Trachtenberg, former host of Revision3's Geekdrome, met Jeff Cannata, former video game columnist, at the D&D table, and became fast friends. Intense debates over Star Wars characters, late night frag-fests in Gears of War, Heroes- and Lost-watching parties, and the sharing of dog-eared copies of Preacher graphic novels followed, leading the guys to one clear realization: This is the stuff we love. This stuff is totally rad. Individually, Alex, Dan, and Jeff had always wanted to find a show that approached geek culture with as much fervor as they did, that wasn't embarrassed to roll dice or dress like Jedi, that realized that nerd is the new cool. Together, they decided to make it. But one component was still missing. Luckily, they turned to uber-video god and bona-fide geek in his own right, Steve Koncelik, to help create a look and feel that was as rad as the subject matter. Several months, and hundreds of exploding fist-pumps later, the Totally Rad Show debuted on Revision3. Four dudes in a garage. One green screen. A cubic ass-ton of enthusiasm. The Totally Rad Show is all about the feeling of sharing a great new movie, or video game, or tv show, or comic with your buddies. It is about the excitement in finding a piece of entertainment you love, or the pain in realizing something isn't as rad as you had hoped. It is about finding friends who share your interests and get just as excited as you do. If it is out there and it is Rad, it is on the Totally Rad Show.
