3.10: The Lepidopterists

This week on the podcast Bryan Dressel, Nicholas “pine fruit” Friedemann, and Mr. Graham “Strawberry” Mason talk about The Lepidopterists, the title of which is tougher to say than you might imagine. It’s also weirdly placed within the season given Tears of a Sea Cow and Now Museum – Now You Don’t. Still a super fun episode!

BROK HOLLIDAY’S REVIEW

Kind of a complex story line in this one and a rare one not featuring doc and the boys, but its was a good change of the pace for the season.

Episode #266 – Couples Movie Night

Due to some timey-wimey scheduling conflicts and the convenient arrival of Valentine’s day we’re trying something a little different. It’s a Couples Movie Night episode featuring OG hosts Bryan and Chewie, each sharing a movie with each other and then talking about it. Chewie’s pick is Virtuosity, and Bryan’s pick is Titan A.E. It’s a shorter episode than you might be used to, but no less fun, and there’s speculation on whether or not Jonathan is a cuddler.

3.09: Now Museum – Now You Don’t!

This week on Venture Bros Bryan Dressel, Nick “A Whole Bushel of Grapes” Friedemann, and Graham “Raspberry” Mason talk about “Now Museum – Now You Don’t!” a fun little episode jammed in the middle of a two-parter. Kind of comes out of the blue, but it’s still a fun episode.

Note: there’s some issues with one of the mics in this episode, so apologies in advance.

Episode #265 – The Nun

This week on the podcast we decided to watch The Nun, and God help us for doing so. Special thanks to friend of the show Elliot Campos for coming to save us in our time of need and providing some levity to help us get through this awful mess of a movie.

3.08: Tears of a Sea Cow

This week on the podcast Bryan Dressel, Nick “Apricot” Friedemann, and Graham “Plum” Mason talk about Tears of a Seacow, which starts out strong but kind of falters at the end. At least it’s stronger than the previous two episodes.

I think there are some good things from this episode, but it’s not one of my favorites. It might have been too Dermott heavy for my liking.

Episode #264 – Crazy Rich Asians

This week on the podcast we’re living the good life as we talk about Crazy Rich Asians, directed by Jon M. Chu and starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, and the wonderful Michelle Yeoh. There’s a lot to like in this lavish film, but it’s not without its problems. Special guest Gabriel Figueroa helps us break down what worked, and what didn’t.

BROK HOLLIDAY’S REVIEW

This was another episode I wasn’t too sure of at first because it was so incredibly dark. Now, I think its amazing and it shows how the original team venture including Jonas were fucking terrible people.

Episode #263 – Bad Times At The El Royale

This week on the podcast the gang has some Bad Times at the El Royale, by which we mean they had a good time because this movie was pretty great. Lot of fun visual imagery and a lot of interesting twists and turns, with a fantastic acting turn from Jeff Bridges. Justin Thiele joins us to talk about the stylish romp from Drew Goddard.

3.06: Dr. Quymn, Medicine Woman

This week on the show Bryan Dressel, Graham “Pineapple” Mason, and Nicholas “Starfruit” Friedemann enter the lull of season three, which continues next week as well. There’s some funny stuff to be had in this evergreen episode, but coming off of some really strong episodes it’s a bit of a letdown. Ayyy! Enjoy!

BROK HOLLIDAY’S REVIEW

When I first saw this episode I hated it. I really felt like it was a low point for season 3. After watching it again and being a much more mature person I have grown to like the episode. Many have childhood dramas that can handicap us as adults and keep us from happiness. That’s what this episode is about. Maybe it’s not a blueprint to overcoming those dramas but it’s definitely there to help us identify them.

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.
