Episode 168: The Sandlot

This week it’s time to play ball! We decided to celebrate baseball season by giving our Patrons five films about America’s pastime to vote on. Their choice was a good one and allows us to reminisce about our childhoods and think back to summers that may not be experienced by kids in the same way ever again. This film is full of memorable moments and we had a joy discussing it together for May’s Donor Pick Episode.

Episode 167: Aladdin (2019)

We discuss this month’s Disney live-action remake,the second out of three to be released in a 3.5 month window this spring/summer and out of four overall this year. Is Disney putting out quality content here that has a potential to win fan hearts, or is this just another shameless cash grab that capitalizes on nostalgia? Hear our positives, negatives, and recommendations for what might have made this work even better in this great conversation.

Episode 166: Bumblebee

This week we’re catching up with a film from 2018 that was over-shadowed by a few other big releases during the Christmas season, but that nonetheless has a surprising amount of heart and plenty for us to talk about. That’s right, the Transformers franchise reboot is off to a good start with this new prequel story from LAIKA Studio’s own Travis Knight.

Episode 165: Lady Bird

“What’s in a name?” One of our favorite topics to discuss is the exploration of character identity and this film offers us plenty of opportunity to do so. We celebrate Mother’s Day with one of the best coming-of-age films of the decade. It is a joy to talk through the relationships in Lady Bird’s life and the beautiful love letter to Sacramento that first-time Director Greta Gerwig brings to the screen.
