What do Skullcrawlers, King Kong, and Vietnam have in common? This podcast! That’s right, folks. We’ve got ourselves a monster movie masquerading as a war film, and it’s quite the glorious ride. Join us and our special guest Justine Gendron as we talk about what worked and what worked REALLY well.
This week it’s just the four of us talking about Ben Wheatley’s under-seen and (in some of our opinions) underrated FREE FIRE. Get your guns at the ready because this is going to be a podcast episode that just won’t die!
This week we go back to the beginning…of the Academy Awards! That’s right, we’re watching all of the best picture winners starting with WINGS (1927). We’re joined by Jandy Hardesty to give us an in-depth look at the history behind the movie and why it was so important.
Face your past. Choose this week’s podcast where we talk about T2 TRAINSPOTTING, Danny Boyle’s follow-up to the 90s drug-filled cinematic punch to the gut. We’re joined by Elliot Campos, who gives us a hilarious breakdown of the plot and nearly breaks the podcast in the process. We talk about getting older and wrestle with the message of the movie. It’s an interesting discussion and you won’t want to miss a minute of it!
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!
After a fun month of ORIGINS episodes we’re back with new content AND A NEW HOST. We welcome Emily Blake ( @TheEmilyBlake on twitter) as the newest member of After The Hype. Say hi!
This week we talk about the final film of the Hugh Jackman Wolverine saga – LOGAN. We’re joined by special guests Elvis Kunesh and Jason Blagman, who give us insight on what worked and what didn’t. If you’ve invested even a tiny amount of time into Jackman’s Wolverine character, you’ll want to check out this fitting conclusion.
