Episode 155: The Fault in Our Stars

Some movies take an emotional toll, and this adaptation of John Green’s beloved best-selling YA novel is definitely one that fits the description. Teens, romance, and disease has become a sort of weird genre, but is there value in it? We definitely think so and have a wonderful, heartfelt conversation about what The Fault in Our Stars means to us, and why we think it can be an impactful story for others as well.

Episode 150: Alita: Battle Angel

This week we discuss the live-action/CGI film adaptation of a classic cyberpunk manga. The film, written and produced by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez, carries a giant budget of $170 million and is another hugely ambitious visual blockbuster from Cameron. We’re on record as generally being very big fans of his work thus far, and like every episode in our James Cameron Director Month of January 2019, we love digging into the themes he writes.
