Episode 112 – 2018 Annual Movie Review Part 2

In this episode, Liz and Heather sit down for the 2018 Annual Movie Review Part 2! We covered January – June in Part 1, so this episode covers July – December. Listen in for our favorites, and the ones we kind of wanted to see, but not enough to actually make it to a theater. We will catch them…eventually.

2018 Annual Movie Review Part 2

2018 Annual Movie Review Part 2

We love doing these movie reviews, and this is the first year that we have actually done one after all of the movies have been released, rather than sometime during the year, where we then have to speculate on what could be. We like it this way, and will probably continue this as a January tradition.

  • Ant-Man and the Wasp
  • Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again
  • Mission Impossible: Fallout

August

  • Disney’s Christopher Robin
  • The Meg
  • Crazy Rich Asians
  • A.X.L.

September

October

  • Venom

November

  • Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald

December

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse
  • Mary Poppins Returns

2018 Annual Movie Review Part 1

2018 Movie Review Part 1

We didn’t get around to doing our movie review during 2018, but that kind of worked out for the best. We usually do half the year with the movies we have seen, and the other half as to what we think the movies will be. This time, we could review the entire year! This is a two-part episode, so make sure to check back in next week for July – December!

  • Peter Rabbit
  • Black Panther

Top Ten Best Parody Movies Ever

Episode 105 – Top Ten Best Parody Movies EVER

In this episode, Liz and Heather take a crack at listing the top ten best parody movies ever! This, of course, leads us to define what a parody movie is. We also give a little history on why we each think the movies on our respective lists deserve to be there. Enjoy!

par·o·dy (noun): an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect.

Top Ten Best Parody Movies Ever

Top Ten Best Parody Movies EVER

In deciding on our top ten list, Liz and Heather each created their Top 5 lists, which were kept secret, only running them through Producer Craig to make sure we did not have duplicates on the list. Here is a rundown of each list.

Heather                                                 Liz

#5:   Wayne’s World                                      Robin Hood: Men in Tights

#4:   Austin Powers: Goldmember                UHF

#3:   21 Jump Street                                     Spaceballs

#2:   Anchorman                                           Galaxy Quest

#1: Tropic Thunder                                       The Pirate Movie

Honorable Mention: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Go check out our Twitter draft to weigh in on who had the better list!

Black Panther

Episode 99 – Black Panther

In this episode, Liz and Heather took a break from Comicpalooza to sit down with blogger and lifestyle guru, Shasie (Shasie’s World) to talk ALL about Black Panther! We will be focusing on the character of Black Panther, not just the stand-alone movie, so we will be discussing Captain America Civil War, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War with SPOILERS all over the place. Also, please excuse the audio. When recording quickly on-the-go, we had a few slip-ups!

Black Panther

Black Panther

Again, SPOILERS! We sat down with Shasie at Comicpalooza to talk all about the character, Black Panther, and will crossover into the different movies he has been in. We jump right on in and talk about all of the crazy things that happen in all of the movies and what is going to happen during the next group of movies that we know are coming.

We love Black Panther. Period. When he pops up in Civil War in the chase of Winter Soldier, we were surprised and excited. We talk about villians, and how well Marvel is doing at bringing in villians who you can somewhat relate to and can feel (especially Killmonger).

We do jump around to talk about some of the rest of the MCU and had a great time.

When we are talking about this, it really isn’t something that accidentally makes us cry and we never watch it again. These are movies that we can’t help but watch even though they make us cry. And sometimes, we watch them because we NEED a good cry!

Heather’s #1: Hatchi (never watch it on a plane)

Liz’s #1: Armageddon

2017 Movie Review Part 2

Since we ran long in Part 1 last week, we didn’t get to finish the movies that had come out as of the date of recording. So, we begin with July and roll on through December. You will have to check back in with us later in the year to see how our predictions held up!

We are especially looking forward to November and December, as there will be some awesome films released, including Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jumanji, and Pitch Perfect 3! Fingers crossed that all of these live up to their respective hypes!

Time Travel

Episode 62 – Time Travel

In this episode, Heather and Liz talk time travel in entertainment (but not real science, so don’t tell us we don’t know science – because we already know that).

Time Travel

Time Travel

We are discussing time travel in TV and movies. Since we don’t have Dr. Neil Degrass Tyson on the show (but we would LOVE to), we won’t be talking the actual physics/science behind the potential for time travel, or even things like wormholes. We are sticking to what we can Google and what we can see in entertainment.

Time Travel Theories
  1. Fixed timeline – Single fixed history which is unchangeable. Whatever you go back and try to change will be what created it in the first place. Examples: 12 Monkeys and Donnie Darko.
  2. Dynamic timeline – Very small change in the past has a huge impact on the future (Butterfly effect or chaos theory). Example: Back to the Future. Paradox: Grandfather paradox – If you go back in time and kill your grandfather and thus you should never be born, but the fact that YOU went back in time means that you existed and the grandpa can’t be killed.
  3. Multi-verse – Every change you make creates a new timeline. Example: Doctor Who, The Flash
  4. Trapped in time – Time is paused and they will rejoin the timeline. Example: Jumanji, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me; Planet of the Apes (1968).

Bootstrap Paradox: occurs when an object or piece of information sent back in time becomes trapped within an infinite cause-effect loop in which the item no longer has a discernible point of origin, and is said to be “uncaused” or “self-created”.

Wormhole – Often used as a method for time travel

Time Travel – in TV

  • Doctor Who
  • Quantum Leap
  • Legends of Tomorrow
  • Agents of Shield (ish)
  • Continum

Time Travel – in Movies

  • Back to the Future
  • Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
  • Groundhog Day*
  • Interstellar
  • Terminator
  • Time Bandits
  • Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
  • Butterfly Effect
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • X-Men Days of Future Past
  • Flight of the Navigator
  • 13 Going on 30

2016 Movie Review - Part 2

Episode 52 – 2016 Movie Review – Part 2

In this episode, Liz and Heather complete the 2016 Movie Review – Part 2. Listen is as we continue talking about the movies we have seen, those we haven’t, and the ones we are looking forward to between now and the end of the year.

2016 Movie Review - Part 2

2016 Movie Review – Part 2

Picking up where we left off in last week’s episode, we got halfway through May, so here we roll!

May

  • Angry Birds The Movie – We didn’t see, nor do we really care to see. We may come across it at some point, so time will tell.
  • Alice Through the Looking Glass – No interest for Heather. Liz saw the first one and enjoyed it more than she thought she would and will probably see this one in the future, but didn’t get around to it in the theaters. (In Liz’s story, it was Carol Channing, NOT Phyllis Diller. Sorry.)
  • X-Men: Apocolypse – We liked it and may need to watch it again to get more of the details. We love their version of Quicksilver better than the one from The Avengers. We also really like Wolverine, obviously.

June

  • Finding Dory – We haven’t seen it and heard it isn’t that great, but we will see.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 – Haven’t seen, not big fans of Michael Bay.
  • The Nice Guys – This one didn’t get its due, so go check it out. Very much in the vein of Lethal Weapon. So much fun – high praise from Heather!
  • Swiss Army Men – Harry Potter becomes a human swiss army knife. It looked really good and funny, so it is one to check out. We haven’t seen it yet, but we will track it down when it comes out.
  • The BFG – This was a childhood classic book, so we will probably come across this movie. It came out right around the time we were doing Comicpalooza, so it was a tough time.
  • Independence Day: Resurgance – We didn’t get to see this and we really wanted to, but it was super slammed in the reviews, so I guess we will come across it sooner or later.
  • Warcraft – We weren’t into the game, but the trailers look pretty epic, so maybe we will see it at some point. Video games don’t always translate well to movies, so we will see.

July

  • Secret Life of Pets – We were so interested in seeing this! The previews started coming out back in January and looked so good! Neither of us had the chance to see it, so we will see it at some point.
  • Ghostbusters – People crapped all over this movie, but it was awesome. It wasn’t the same as the original movie (which honestly wasn’t the best movie ever – it survives on nostalgia), and that was the best part. It didn’t throw the fact that they were all girls in your face. They just were. They were smart and awesome.
  • Star Trek Beyond – We both liked it better than the last one. It was a good movie and had some great comedic moments. They did a lovely nod to the death of Leonard Nemoy, which we really loved. The Bones/Spock/Kirk relationship in this movie was amazing and really nods back to the roles they had in the original series. Check out For The Love of Spock on iTunes – It’s a documentary by Adam Nemoy (Leonard Nemoy’s son) talking about the life and career of his dad. It was beautiful and completely worth watching. Plus, Beastie Boys Sabotage being played as “classical music” was pure awesome.
  • Bad Moms
  • Batman: The Killing Joke – Came out for one day only before the DVD release. We went to see this with several other area podcasters and that part was fun. The show is twelve shades of fucked up.

August

  • Suicide Squad
  • Pete’s Dragon
  • Kubo
  • Florence Foster Jenkins
  • Sausage Party

September

  • Sully
  • Bridget Jones’ Baby
  • The Magnificent Seven

Remaining Movies of 2016
