This podcast also does whatever a spider can, though perhaps not as well as this movie.

If Keanu Reeves and Common shooting at each other through a crowded Greenwich Village subway station doesn't do it for you, well, what are we even doing here?

Benedict Cumberbatch does magic stuff. It's pretty neat. Also there's a bad guy, sort of, a little, because it's a Marvel movie.

"Hey, I've got an idea. Let's make a neo-Western crime movie with Captain Kirk and the Dude." Someone had that thought, and that someone is a GODDAMNED GENIUS.

In which Poe Dameron and Macbeth fight... uh... I actually can't think of really anything else that James McAvoy is particularly famous for. Band of Brothers? Sure. Fassbender was in that too, you know!

Disney owns all these things now, right? You kind of wanted Luke Skywalker to show up and say "civil war? Is it a GALACTIC civil war? Meh. Not that impressive."

And then Cap says, "we have Robert Downey Junior."

Then the real war starts. Over Robert Downey Junior.

We break all the rules for Star Wars in a special extra-long show. Well, there's really only two rules, but we do break both of them.

Anyone else think feel like before it was a Spielberg movie "Bridge of Spies" sounds like it would have been a hair-metal power ballad? "On a BRIIIIIIIIIIDGE... of SPIIIIII-EEEE-IIIIIIEEEEESS!"


Just me?

It's like a riddle: if you make a ghost movie that doesn't really have anything to do with ghosts, will people hate it?

(Spoiler: god let's hope so.)

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make a good Mission Impossible movie when your name isn't Brian DePalma or Brad Bird.


It is called Mission IMPOSSIBLE, mind.

You wouldn't think the word "offensive" would get thrown around so many times as regards a movie about dinosaurs. And yet, here we are.

The return of Max Rockatansky brings the first true split decision to our fair podcast, and it's a 29-28/29-28/30-27 humdinger. Nobody in the movie wears seatbelts and neither did we, and those were mistakes.

It turns out that ignorance does in fact have some unexpected virtues, one of which is deciphering Alejandro Innaritu's Birdman. We mean deciphering in the fun way. That's a thing, right?

It turns out that we do not, in fact, know when to fold them. Which is why we saw the deeply-flawed remake of The Gambler starring Mark Wahlberg. And why we make that joke. Yeah, we know. We apologize.

We return from our hiatus with our first discussion of a holiday prestige release: Foxcatcher. Why Foxcatcher? Because even though we both love history, we often ignore it.

After one abortive attempt we finally managed to see Interstellar in its entirety and can confirm that it is, in fact, a movie. Anything beyond that is probably speculation.
