Hot on the heels of the immensely successful Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves back in the early 90s came Mel Brooks adaptation of the Robin Hood mythos and yes, the legend had it coming. Robin Hood: Men in Tights is a musical adventure comedy film directed by Mel Brooks and is loosely based off of previous Robin Hood films (particularly Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Disney’s Robin Hood, and The Adventures of Robin Hood). The movie has an all-star cast, featuring Cary Elwes as Robin Hood, Richard Lewis, Amy Yasbeck, and Dave Chappelle in his film debut. Although not one of Brooks’s highest grossing films, like most of his other work, it garnered a cult following. Continue reading
Welcome back to the Cube everyone! This week, the Ladies of the Cube are back again and our topic revolves around one man. Who is that you ask? This man is the epitome of parodies, the one and only Mel Brooks. With two of us being hardcore fans, we take our own Stephanie to task! Be sure to listen in as we discuss several of his more popular movies including: Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Spaceballs, Get Smart, and Young Frankenstein! Continue reading
He was a man much beloved by people of all ages. Though he never knew we were there, we laughed with him and shed our tears with him. From the late 70s until yesterday, Robin Williams has delighted us in his many roles such as Mork, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Peter Banning. The man has known many masks over his time upon the big screen. Few knew of the battle that he fought in his private time and eventually fell to. Let us take some time to remember one of greatest celebrities. Continue reading
This week in the cube is dedicated to all things Mel Brooks. American film director, screenwriter, composer, lyricist, comedian, actor and producer–this man is a legend in everything he touches. He is a master creator of broad film farces and comic parodies. Films such as my favorite Spaceballs, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety, Silent Movie, History of the World: Part I, The Producers, and my other favorite Young Frankenstein.
While the question “why do we enjoy watching horror?” has been asked many a time, it never really came up in this week’s podcast. Instead we accepted it as read that we all share, albeit in varying degrees, a fascination and an undeniable interest in some pretty scary stuff.
While we kept it TV-centric in this week’s podcast, for me I know that this fascination is hardly limited to what can be found on the small screen. Despite learning at a young age that I was a complete and total wimp (the alien in Independence Day made me too afraid to go to the bathroom by myself), I persisted in testing my limits and braving the foregone conclusion that I wouldn’t be sleeping that night.
This week on The Companions Cube, the ladies take an in-depth look at some of our favorite horror tv shows. The huge love for AMC’s The Walking Dead will shine through with a great discussion on the show. We also take a look at Fox’s new hit show, Sleepy Hollow and the CW’s Supernatural. What good would a horror podcast be without throwing some extra love in on horror movies we’ve seen and enjoyed. Continue reading
Dracula, Frankenstein, The Picture of Dorian Gray… all forbidden tales of horror, science-fiction, and supernatural lore. Tales that get under your skin, leave you wanting and aching for more.

This week in the cube, the Ladies and I slowly creep into the dark realm that is horror television. For me, nothing is more epic than AMC’s The Walking Dead. This show has defined zombie, post-apocalyptic horror on television in a way we haven’t seen in a long time and millions of viewers will agree with me. So sit back and enjoy as I talk about The Walking Dead, and by all means…“look at the flowers.” Continue reading
