Classic Movie Review: Hook

We chose Hook as one of the options for our poll based on our favorite character from the movie, Dante Basco, attending the convention this year! You may remember him better as, “RUFIO! RUFIO! ROOF-EEE-OOOOO!” This may come up again 😉

Listen in to our point-by-point review to see if this classic from our teenage years really holds up over time. Also, learn why Tink is clearly the REAL villian of Neverland, and why naming a kid Thud Butt could have life-long consequences and strategic advantages.

Classic Movie Review: Star Trek: First Contact

Classic Movie Review: Star Trek: First Contact

Liz and Heather talk through the movie, discussing what all is happening, along with their thoughts on those goings-on. WARNING: As this is a movie review, it does contain SPOILERS. If you have not see this movie from 1996 and are listening in, that’s on you.

We talk about some of the things we liked and also those sections that just don’t hold up over time. Some may even seem a bit like fan fiction! We give our final thoughts, and answer some Star Trek-related questions sent by our Castaway friends.

Liz also recently guested on both Everything I Learned From Movies with Steve and Izzy to discuss the 90s movie Zeus & Roxanne and all things THE GUTE. She also guest hosted this week on CasterQuest, filling in on a replacement episode (Ep. 11) in their Name of the Wind book club! So make sure to go check out those shows at the links below!
