IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME! We’re joined this week by special guest Christopher Hayden and friend of the show Jason Blagman to talk about the 2017 reboot of POWER RANGERS. The movie gets a lot right, but also makes some creative decisions that have us scratching our heads. We talk about the importance of being true to the spirit of the original show, and the inherent flaw in trying to appeal to both fans and non-fans alike. It’s ZORDS, Emily! Anyway, we’ve got a super fun episode this week so lend us your ears for an hour-twenty and let’s do this!

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!

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.

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!
