This week we talk a little about our feelings regarding Wonder Woman 1984, some good news for Star Wars games, Octopi have beef with fish, we again put on our headbands and bow to each other before we square off in our discussion of Cobra Kai Season 3, and we find out what it means to be a student of Steve Kown Do.
This week we celebrate the holiday season by having the original invader himself, Joe, on to talk about the end of Season 2 of The Mandalorian and Steve finally faces his fear and watches Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Baja Blast Edition and we talk about whether or not Zach Snyder even likes Superman as a character, and we have a holiday addition of Higher or Lower. Bonus: ham talk. Have a happy and safe holiday!
We conclude our Year of Animation being joined by special guests Nathaniel and Sammaeal from the At The Devil's Ball Podcast to talk about a groundbreaking hybrid of live action and animation with 1988's Who Framed Roger Rabbit. We dig deep into the themes that become more apparent the older that we get, how herculean the task must have been to bring this very complex project to life and oh, and those kids were definitely smoking while hanging off the back of a trolley car. Check out the episode, p-p-p-please?
This week we are joined by friend of the show Richard as we talk for 3 and half hours about all of the following: various movies we watched over the weekend, Warner Brothers releasing all of their 2021 films directly to HBO Max, Spider-Man is getting a lot of Spider-Mans and villains for the next film, mountain phalluses are here to save us, a bunch more Mandalorian talk, we dive deep into the plasma pool and talk about David Cronenberg's masterpiece in body horror with 1986's The Fly, and we try to determine what are real or fake Hallmark holiday movie channel titles.
This week we talk about Thanksgiving holiday doings, say goodbye to another Star Wars actor, Alex Ross is cross as Warner Brothers, we are looking for wacky cookie ingredients, we have a two pronged conversation about the most recent episode of The Mandalorian: one about fandom patting itself on the back with one hand and shoving out new fans with the other, and two: the burden of weighing down a series with the rest of the its greater universe, and Steve helps Paul put together our Invasion of the Podcast Holiday Special!™
We hope you all had a safe and turkey filled Thanksgiving. Normally each year we do a bit on the show talking about all of the exciting Black Friday deals that you need to rush out and get ASAP, however, with the plague going on and 2020 being 2020, it didn't seem like a fun idea to encourage people to go out shopping. We have put together our previous 4 years worth of Black Friday deals and related games in one episode for you to enjoy why you stay safe at home.
This week we continue our journey through the Year of Animation by looking at our first Claymation feature: 2000's Chicken Run. When a group of hens realize their days are numbered, they look for any way to escape their farm. Along comes Rocky, a rooster that looks like he has figured out how to fly...
Before we get to discussion of the movie (about 55 minutes into the episode) we also talk about our weekend watches, including a brief talk about The New Mutants, and a story about a brawl for some burgers.
Have a good and safe Thanksgiving!
This week we solve the age old mystery of what happened to the dinosaurs, Wonder Woman is coming home for the holidays, of course we talk more about the Mandalorian, there's a bacon flavored beer out there, and we go ghost hunting with Amazon Prime's Truth Seekers and enjoy walking the line between humor and horror, and we have a quiz about toilets (please send us our podcast Emmy now, thanks).
This week we talk about our post election fatigue, going to doctors, and not feeling welcome at gas stations. Also some people are upset that a puppet ate some fake eggs, Alex Trebek has passed away and 2020 just keeps getting sadder, century old statue got an unfortunate facelift. We discuss a brief history of movie trailers, what they are supposed to do, what makes a good trailer, and we talk about some of our favorites. Finally, Steve beta tests his new Buzzfeed quiz on Paul.
This week we talk about our very different Halloweens, we say goodbye to a legend, Clive Barker is back to raising some hell, pumpkins grow scary big, and we end our SpooOooOOOooky month of animation by looking at the recently released Creepshow Animated Special and it's two twisted tales, and how we feel about the 'motion comic' aesthetic, and Steve has to figure out which Are You Afraid of the Dark titles are real or fake?
