Family Movie Night

Family Movie Night
We watch a movie as a family then talk about it.

30: The Neverending Story
Nov 30, 2018 • 30 min
Please join us as we create the neverending podcast. It’s not that long but we went off on a few tangents near the end. Be sure to listen to the very end for a little HSR Easter egg.
29: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Oct 31, 2018 • 36 min
Happy Halloween! Experimental Episode Warning: We talked about this movie while we watched it. We probably won’t do it again but wanted to do something a little different for Halloween.
28: Despicable Me 3
Oct 23, 2018 • 20 min
Gru’s family continues to grow in this installment of the Despicable Me Cinematic Universe (DMCU). Eventually they will probably face off against Thanos.
27: Fantastic Beasts
Oct 10, 2018 • 28 min
The title “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is very long for a movie. We heard mixed reviews when it was released and forgot about this movie until now. We’d love for you to hear our review which isn’t very mixed.
26: Next Gen
Oct 3, 2018 • 17 min
Sometimes Netflix Originals are good, sometimes they are not. Find out what we think of this one. We talk about likable characters, memories, and how technology can influence our behavoir and our relationships.
25: The Greatest Showman
Sep 26, 2018 • 25 min
Gwen knew she would love this movie. Asher knew he wouldn’t like it. They were both right. Jamie and I watched it before and were surprised that it was so beloved so we looked for redeeming qualities on our second viewing. We found some!
24: Incredibles 2
Jun 18, 2018 • 40 min
Our hot take on this new release. Go see it! I hope you know I can only use the phrase “hot take” playfully.
23: The Incredibles
Jun 15, 2018 • 19 min
A favorite and a classic. With the sequel coming out soon we wanted to talk about the original first. Our apologies to Mr. Michael Giacchino because none of us were daring enough to attempt to pronounce his name.
22: The Secret Life of Pets
Jun 3, 2018 • 19 min
Gwen recommended this Movie to us. Shhhhh! It’s a secret.
21: Leap!
Mar 31, 2018 • 21 min
We have a new format… or perhaps it would be better to say we are going formatless.
20: The Boss Baby
Feb 22, 2018 • 32 min
The path to success is not a straight path but a wild ride like a ship at sea and you are a sea captain taming the ocean.
19: Brave
Jan 29, 2018 • 23 min
We liked Brave more on our second viewing than our first.
18: How to Train Your Dragon 2
Jan 19, 2018 • 28 min
None of us would have guessed that this sequel would have so much heart.
17: My Little Pony: The Movie
Jan 13, 2018 • 34 min
Friendship is magic and all that stuff but Asher can’t stop complaining.
16: The Last Jedi
Jan 2, 2018 • 95 min
Recommended, but boy do we have a lot to say about this one.
15: A Christmas Prince
Dec 8, 2017 • 41 min
Why this one? I guess I was kind of thirsty for a bad movie.
14: Wall•E
Dec 1, 2017 • 29 min
Wall•E might be polarizing but it’s one of “our” movies.
13: Coco
Nov 24, 2017 • 40 min
Day of the dead, a matriarchal family, psychedelic spirit guides, mariachi music, what more could you want?
12: Cars 3
Nov 17, 2017 • 33 min
We wish we would have seen more trailers before watching this one.
11: Moana
Nov 10, 2017 • 42 min
Why didn’t the ocean deliver the heart of Te Fiti? Well, we have a few ideas. We review some elements of the hero’s journey as we discuss this excellent and inspiring film.
10: Big Hero 6
Nov 3, 2017 • 30 min
It’s a fun movie about death. They treat loss sincerely and still there is a lot to enjoy.
9: Coraline
Oct 27, 2017 • 46 min
Everything is perfect because of machines. Everything is sinister because of machines.
8: The LEGO Ninjago Movie
Oct 20, 2017 • 38 min
Did your dad teach you to catch? If not this movie might hit you where you live.
7: Beauty and the Beast 2017
Oct 13, 2017 • 51 min
We talk about the challenges of doing a “remake.” We love the ’91 version but how does the new one compare?
6: The LEGO Batman Movie
Oct 6, 2017 • 34 min
We found the title surprisingly awkward to say out loud.
5: Song of the Sea
Sep 29, 2017 • 36 min
Selkies are real! Gwen can’t stop humming the melody.
4: Trolls
Sep 22, 2017 • 40 min
Hollywood has been vilifying trolls for decades, finally a movie where trolls are the heroes!
3: Sing
Sep 14, 2017 • 42 min
Crime doesn’t pay. Cheaters never prosper. Well, not according to this movie.
2: Kubo and the Two Strings
Sep 6, 2017 • 39 min
The title of this movie is appropriately confusing.
1: Intro to Family Movie Night
Sep 1, 2017 • 7 min
We explain how our podcast is structured and how we analyze movies.
