We have a quick update on the status of Casual Cartoons, as well as plans to record the Venture Bros finale that was promised all that time ago. There’s also talk about the upcoming Frisky Dingo podcast and whether or not Matt will be one of the cohosts. He will. Maybe? For sure.
As for the rest of today’s episode: Kubo and the Two Strings was another one of those Laika films that was a bit overlooked at the box office, which is a shame. It’s a marvelous piece of animation with a great story and some heavy emotion. Cheers.
I generally dislike lists, and I can never seem to keep track of what I’ve watched in a year, but here we are.
2016 was perhaps the worst year in moviegoing for me…because I didn’t really see all that many films. The only reason I can present this dumb list to you is because I HAD to watch films for the podcast in order to talk about them.
Turns out, I watched JUST enough to come up with a (in my opinion) barely passable TOP TEN list. I’m sure a few of the movies listed will surprise you, but a majority of them won’t if you’ve listened to us ramble about movies all year. There’s also a television show on this list in the honorable mentions because – like I said – I’m not a huge fan of lists.
In order to write as little as possible for this post, I’ve resorted to using gifs from one of my favorite films – GALAXY QUEST. Turns out, you can use GALAXY QUEST gifs for pretty much anything in life. That said, let’s get crack-a-lackin’ on my TOP 10 MOVIES IN 2016 THAT THIS SILLY PODCAST MADE ME WATCH!
Laika has done it again with their new film KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS, and we couldn’t wait to talk about it. Friend of the show Mackenzie Peykov joins us to talk about the animated film and delve into why once again no one went out to see this one.
