A Dark, Violent and delightful surprise, with a kickin’ score!
I hadn’t been in Los Angeles all that long, really. Wasn’t acclimated to the temperature, and still thought sixty degrees was “warm.” In-n-Out was a novelty for me, and so were all the movie theater options available (you mean I can go to the theater Tarantino owns whenever I want??).
Joe Wright as a director was on my radar, but I had only seen his Pride and Prejudice, which I thought “was fine.” Both Atonement and The Soloist were a skip for me based on the marketing, which made the trailer for Hanna a bit of a surprise when I saw it.
We’re exploring the final frontier with this week’s Musicapalooza Spotify Playlist!
To celebrate the release of Valerian this weekend, we’re blasting off into the great unknown that is SPACE. Well, that’s not entirely accurate. We’ve got a Spotify playlist, which is pretty much the same thing, yeah? Oh! We’ve also got this video of Tim Curry:
So put on those space-age headphones, find a nice corner of your spaceship, and check out the coolest music playlist this side of the galaxy!
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!
The Tip of My Brain Movie Game is back and it’s got the goods!
We’ve got an impressive line-up of stills this week. Think you can guess which movies they belong to? We’ve been toying around with either setting up a leaderboard or some kind of prize for the person who guesses correctly, so let us know what you think in the comments.
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. 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).
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.”
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.
