Conversations about movies between two friends.

14 - Men in Black: International
Jul 1, 2019 • 47 min
Nostalgia does not sell… well it doesn't sell for everyone. That doesn't mean that its always going to be a blockbuster hit or that its going to be horrible. Do we think that the critics gave Men in Black: International a fair review? No, we don't but we…
13 - Aladdin
Jun 12, 2019 • 58 min
When ever a film is remade, continued, or rebooted, its always met with the harshest of criticism and in this episode we are no different. We discuss the what we think was done right and what was lacking in the new live action film. Just like everyone…
12 - Triple Frontier
May 21, 2019 • 51 min
We pick apart this film as we discuss the storyline, the acting, and even trailers. Do you even watch them anymore? We try not to watch to many trailers anymore for fear of getting movies like Triple Frontier getting ruined. We cover some of the logic in…
11 - Mulan
May 14, 2019 • 51 min
We finally decided to have a conversation about an animated film. We went with a Disney classic but during our conversation we come across some realizations about Disney, the film, and animation. Should animation films always cater to both adults and…
10 - Bleach
May 7, 2019 • 44 min
Another live action adaption, but its about an anime. It is never easy to re-make a classic animation that has a big following. We think we may have found a film that does its source material some justice. We also might be a couple of fanboys but that…
09 - Apocalypse Now
Apr 23, 2019 • 52 min
What a fantastical hallucinogenic film this was to watch or was it a complete disaster? Isaac and Jesse discuss what actually happened during the movie as they debate certain aspects that may or may not have ever been in the actual movie. Then again it…
08 - Roma
Apr 9, 2019 • 44 min
Netflix created a lot of hype about Roma. Of course this meant that Jesse and Isaac had to check out the film to see what this film was all about. Lets just say we were left trying to figure things out. We both agree that the cinematography was great and…
07 - Us
Apr 2, 2019 • 47 min
There is a lot to unfold in the second theatrical release by Jordan Peele. Do you think you know what the intention and meaning behind the film is? One thing that Isaac and Jesse can agree on is that Peele knows horror. We might be a little to critical…
06 - Blazing Saddles
Mar 12, 2019 • 43 min
Its always interesting to see how comedy films have aged. Sometimes the jokes stand against the test of time and other times they start to feel a little distasteful. We start to try and find more meaning to it all but maybe we are just a bit loony and are…
05 - Bird Box
Feb 26, 2019 • 50 min
When we first started to watch this film we thought we were going to be watching a horror film. By the time we get to the end of this discussion we might have convinced each other that it is a mystery thriller. Enjoy listening to our discussion on the…
04 - Sorry to Bother You
Feb 19, 2019 • 57 min
Sometimes a director has a clear vision, an artistic clear vision of what they want to present to their audience. So clear that if you are not sure what it is that they are trying to say, you might be on to something. Join us as we make an attempt not to…
03 - Piercing
Feb 12, 2019 • 48 min
Based on the popular 1994 Japanese novel "Piercing" by Ryu Murakami. We make an attempt to discuss what we saw and make sense of the story but soon discover that this movie leaves us with a lot of questions.
02 - Wind River
Feb 5, 2019 • 76 min
A missing person doesn't have to end tragically, but Taylor Sheridan shows us that tragedy in his 2017 movie, Wind River. Join us as we discuss choice of scenes, actors, and plot devices. We debate on how the story could have been delivered and give our…
