The franchise goes international for this next entry, the one that is usually regarded by fans as the best, and we do not disagree. It’s time for us to gush about one of the most perfect action films ever made. We love it. It’s in the Trophy Room. Listen and find out why. Salute, mi familia.
Though many dislike this entry, we have a fondness for this particular film in the Fast Saga and think it is severely underrated. In this episode, we gush about how Justin Lin starts to take this franchise down new roads while solidifying character relationships we’ve come to love and giving us a healthy dose of mostly still grounded racing action.
We continue our fast and furious summer with a conversation about one of the most disliked sequels in the franchise. Changing directors, relocating to Miami, and introducing Brian O’Connor to an entirely new group of friends, this film stays in line with the grounded nature of the first but trades some of its emotional heft for a little extra style. We discuss both the ways it was a pleasant surprise and its slight missteps.
Feelin’ Film kicks off our fast and furious summer with a conversation about the film that launched one of our most-beloved franchises. The street racing, unique heist, great character introductions and more come up. And yes, we talk about family, too.
This week’s early episode drop features discussion on the newest comedy from “The Big Sick” director Michael Showalter and star Kumail Nanjiani, a film in which the latter is half of a couple on the outs who stumble into a crime caper and hilariously try and salvage their relationship over the course of one crazy night. We chat about what makes a movie funny, the importance of cast chemistry, and whether or not trauma is actually good for mending relationship troubles in our conversation.
In this week’s episode, we finish up discussing Andrew Garfield’s turn wearing the Spider-Man mask. Our feelings on this sequel are a little more contentious, but there is no doubt plenty to talk about between its two empathetic villains, beautiful romance, and ultimately one of the most iconic and tragic comic deaths of all-time.
In this week’s episode, we gush about our love for the first film of Andrew Garfield’s turn wearing the Spider-Man mask. With minimal comparing to other iterations (though some is necessary), we lay out the many reasons (i.e. practically everything) that make this our favorite live-action version of the character.
For the month of April, our Patrons chose Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story for us to discuss and this philosophically-focused conversation is the result. Fatalism vs. free will, privacy rights, and super cool not-so-far-fetched technology are among our topics.
