Episode #262 – The Predator (2018)

This week on the podcast we have a bit of a Predator problem. Namely, that the new Predator movie is called THE PREDATOR. You’d think after enough of these movies they would want to reduce the confusion, not add to it. Anyway, this movie is a bit of a mess so we brought in friend of the show Erik Steffens to help us figure out what worked and what didn’t.

ATH Network’s Holiday Celebration!

Ignore your family and hang out with us!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us over at the ATH Network of podcasts! We know you’re probably opening gifts or feasting with family but forget all of that and come join us for two Christmas-themed podcasts as well as an article from our friend and main contributor Matt Dykes.


AFTER THE HYPE EP. 261 – FEEL GOOD CHRISTMAS MOVIES BATTLE

Twas the day that was Christmas and all through your earbuds came the sounds of epic battle. That’s right, you wonderful holiday people! We watched a bunch of “feel good” Christmas movies and argued pleasantly for over an hour about which one was best.

Go to the episode post here, or just listen below

Beat that, loved ones!


VENTURE BROS: A VERY VENTURE CHRISTMAS

Nothing says holiday celebration like hanging out with friends talking about the greatest animated show of all time and its…uh…well…not very good holiday special. At least there’s fun banter between Bryan Dressel, Nick “Sugar Cookie” Friedemann, and Graham “Bah-Humbug” Mason.

You can listen to the episode below or go to the episode post with all them fancy shownotes and pictures

Suck it, family time!


ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS MOVIES – BY MATT DYKES

And then we’ve got a new article from our friend and contributor Matt Dykes about alternative Christmas movies to watch when you’ve burned through all the best “feel good” Christmas movies like The Mistle-Tones, My Santa, 12 Dates of Christmas, A Cinderella Christmas, or Married By Christmas.

It’s quite the fun read and I’d advise you to check it out here.


See? Aren’t you glad you spent your holiday with us instead? We laughed, we cried, we battled, and we discussed a disappointing Christmas Special to the greatest animated show of all time. It was truly an epic day that changed all of our lives. Now you’re ready to go out there and face 2019 like a champ!


Episode #261 – Feel Good Christmas Movies Battle

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM ALL OF US AT AFTER THE HYPE! In the spirit of the holidays we thought it would be a hoot to give you a battle episode featuring those feel good Christmas movies you might see on ABC Family, Freeform, Hallmark, etc. We had blast pitting these movies against each other, and even brought in producer Brian Nolan to join in the holiday tussle.

Episode #258 – You Were Never Really Here

This week on the show we’re joined by newcomers Kyle Anderson and Makaela Newsome to talk about Lynne Ramsay’s latest and fairly divisive film You Were Never Really Here. It’s a movie that actively rebels against its genre, which works for some of us and not so much for others. Overall, a fun and in-depth discussion on an interesting movie.
