This week we talk about how we are dealing with self isolation, the best places to find the white gold known as toilet paper, Tiger King is a crazy documentary, and we continue our Year of Animation as we stay in 1982 and talk about another darker fantasy film, The Last Unicorn.
This week we watched a lot of stuff in isolation, the movie studios are putting a lot of current films out on VOD early, Drew Struzan turns a year older and we need to appreciate him more, T-Rexs are running loose in Spain, we take a look at the independent low budget film The VelociPastor and ask what makes a bad film good, and we take a look back at the faraway year of 2018 with our Box Office Barometer.
This week Paul gets to meet some of the voices in his head, AvengersLand looks pretty amazing, we say goodbye to Max Von Sydow, Dracula is getting Blumed, we talk about the pros and cons of fan art and how it can be a stepping stone for creators to get noticed, and Steve serves up Paul some fast food fails.
This week we talk about the real Hamburglar, looking at houses is weird, 007 has a license to move his release dates, Hocus Pocus is getting a sequel, McGruff really is a crime dog, we talk about Mike Flanagan's Director's Cut of Doctor Sleep and if he is able to successfully serve two masters, and Paul asks Steve questions about what is older.
We continue our trek into the Year of Animation by looking at 1982's The Secret of N.I.M.H. Can a film that combines cute woodland creatures, science fiction, sword fights, and wizard rats somehow all come together and stick the landing? Guess you will have to party with us underneath the rosebush to find out.
This week we miss each other's faces as we try to prepare for Snowpocalypse 2020™ the best way we know how: hiding in our separate homes stocked full of beer and talk about pop culture via Skype. Rick Moranis is back, Birds of Prey gets a slightly different title, who knew Fortnite was an interpretation of a literary classic?, and to celebrate the holiday all about love, we look at 1981's My Bloody Valentine, the slasher and mining classic, and we create a dating profile for someone near and dear to Steve's heart.
This week Star Wars changes their focus, Doctor Strange just got more groovy, what is your preferred robbery weapon of choice?, we talk about the character of Harley Quinn and her origins and how she was portrayed in Suicide Squad, and we pit animated characters against one another to the death.
This week we kick off our yearlong dive into animated films by looking at Ralph Bakshi's Wizards. A film that neither one of us had previously seen from a creator that has pushed boundaries in what an animated film can be. Is the journey to the land of Scortch worth taking?
This week Paul finds another reason to be angry at Ernest Cline, everything is becoming a musical, we find out what Steve's weapon of choice would be if he had to be in a trial by combat, we talk about the Mr. Rogers documentary 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' and how one man's wanting to listen and care will affect many generations to come, and Steve wants to know if people knows all of the people in his neighborhood.
This week we get all vampirey as we first talk about the new Morbious trailer, then find out there are a lot of number 1 comics in the top 100 for the decade, also there's a different version of the Episode IX script out there and people are debating if it is better than the actual film, we sink our teeth in into the BBC/Netflix limited series Dracula and determine if it is love at first bite or if it leaves a bitter aftertaste, and Paul makes Steve take a blood test.
