Who would have thought that an animated movie based on Lego minifigs would ever become must-see cinema? But here we are. THE LEGO MOVIE 2 goes bigger than ever before and we’re a bit split on just how well that worked. We talk through the pop culture reference-heavy thematically rich sequel with so much going on that it couldn’t help but give us plenty to discuss. Our hope is that this podcast is gonna stuck inside your heeeeeeaaaad.

This week, arriving a couple of days behind schedule, and celebrating the latest American holiday, we thought it would be fun to talk about one of our favorite comedies, Harold Ramis’ Groundhog Day, one of the more hilarious time travel movies ever made and one that has plenty of thematic depth to discuss in addition to its great usage of weather puns.
This week we have a conversation aboutour January Donor Pick episode, the 1997 Paul Verhoeven adaptation of the classic Robert Heinlein science fiction novel. This movie, shall we say, takes a few liberties, but does touch on many of the same interesting themes as its source material. This is the third time STARSHIP TROOPERS was up for a donor pick episode and we’re excited to finally be discussing it.
We close out our James Cameron Director Month series with a conversation about a film that comes in just under 3 hours. It had a $250 million dollar budget and is still the current world box office record holder. This film has definitely made its mark on the cinematic world, enough to spawn eventual sequels, and its own bit of social controversy. We discuss!

So, it’s week 3 of our James Cameron Director Month series, and with it comes a film of unsinkable size. Coming in at 3 hours and 15 minutes, and with a $200 million dollar budget, Titanic set out to tell the story of one of the biggest tragic events in history. We welcome Seattle-based blogger, writer, and film critic, Erynne Hundley to the show for this discussion where we find out if this epic historical romance really does make our hearts go on, or if our opinion of the film sunk over the years.
