MOVIE REVIEW: Tolkien

To say that I was merely satisfied by TOLKIEN from director Dome Karukoski would be a gross understatement. Check out Tolkien when it releases next weekend or attend the special Fathom Events showing on May 7 that features a Q&A hosted by Stephen Colbert.

Episode 163: Avengers: Endgame

This week we are of course talking about the final chapter in a story 10 years and 22 films in the making. We break down our reaction to this once-in-generation event, while also taking a look back at the past and contemplating the future. This is a wonderful conversation that we both thoroughly enjoyed and think you will, too.

Episode 162: Snowpiercer

This month’s donor pick theme was comic book/graphic novel films not part of the Marvel or DC universes and our listeners still managed to get Captain America in the mix. We discuss this sci-fi, horror, dystopian, post-apocalyptic film with deep themes and kick-ass action and have a great time doing it.

MOVIE REVIEW: Avengers: Endgame

100% spoiler-free with no plot points even hinted at! AVENGERS: ENDGAME closes the book on one of the greatest film franchise achievements in history on a very high note. It is every bit the emotional experience you expect & a gratifying finale. Also, for the first time in 10+ years there is no post-credit scene so feel free to rush to the bathroom as required.

Episode 161: Singin’ in the Rain

We’re not podcasting in the rain this week, but we’re definitely happy again to be chatting about one of Aaron’s favorite films in celebration of both Spring and his birthday. We can’t speak for Don Lockwood, but we assure you that this conversation will be conducted with dignity… always dignity… and hopefully it will put a little smile on your face and even help you appreciate this lovely musical even more.

LAIKA Studios is back with another beautifully animated and charming tale, this time a globe-trotting adventure with an unlikely trio of characters exploring not only mythical lands but themes such as identity and colonialism, as well. This film also gives us gut-busting laughs and endearing moments, plenty of material to discuss for this week’s conversation.

MOVIE REVIEW: Missing Link

Coming this week, MISSING LINK is my favorite animated film of 2019 thus far & will be covered on Episode 160 of the podcast. Fans of Laika Studios should ignore any lack of excitement from the trailers. It’s great family fun & exciting to see an original animated story so well told.
