Time To Monkey Around, It’s Musicapalooza!

We’re monkeying around for this week’s Musicapalooza, and It’s partially Caesar’s fault.

War For The Planet of the Apes is out this weekend and we thought it would be a fun thing to have a playlist that’s all about “monkeying around.” Some tracks have monkeys in them and some tracks are completely random, but all of the songs featured this week are super fun to listen to!

 

So don’t delay! Give our new playlist a listen and let us know what you think!

Episode #194 – Secret Santa In July

It’s Christmas in July! Or rather, it’s the summer version of our secret santa movie exchange. We had so much fun doing this last time that we brought Christopher Ortiz back to do it again. Our pal (and former co-host) Ryan James assigned each of us a person and we gave them a movie we thought they would enjoy (or not).

A Hype To Remember: Hannibal (TV)

It was a gory, three-course meal with complicated start and a ravishing finish.

My favorite television show of all time is Hannibal, the surprising NBC adaptation of Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon. The show focused on FBI Special Investigator Will Graham and his relationship to Psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a relationship that the internet would lovingly dub “murder husbands.”

 

SEE??! MURDER HUSBANDS ARE REAL AND IMPORTANT!

 

As someone who enjoyed Jonathan Demme’s Silence of the Lambs, found an amusing appreciation for Ridley Scott’s Hannibal, and found himself bored by Brett Ratner’s Red Dragon, I was interested to see how NBC (of all channels) was going to take a stab at the polite cannibal.

Time For A Homecoming Musicapalooza!

To celebrate the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, we’re making a spotify playlist about…HOMECOMING.

We weren’t content over here at After the Hype HQ to simply do a playlist about Spider-Man. No siree! We thought it would be even better if we did a playlist based on Homecoming itself. You know, that magical time when everything sucked but it was somehow okay because the music was pretty dope and the dance was alright?

 

Anyway, give our new playlist a listen and let us know what you think!

A Hype To Remember: Spider-Man (2002)

Raimi’s Spider-Man was a revelation, and it’s hype was an unforgettable event!

 

When I was a kid, live-action superhero movies were limited to a series of Batmen with costumes so stiff that they couldn’t turn their heads. Aside from an obscure Captain America VHS tape that I could rent from the local gas station, Marvel – my chosen comics company – was completely absent from the field.

 

Bryan Singer’s first X-Men film was a revelation. I hopped up-and-down on my way out of the theater as I explained to my father why Toad’s immortal line “Don’t you people ever die?!” was a perfect summation of the genre.

 

Much like Jason Bourne, the X-Men were just the tip of the iceberg. Two years later, the most highly-anticipated cinematic event of all time was unveiled: Spider-Man.
