Happy Feet S01E07

5/6/2019

We cannot tell a lie...we are not fans of this one. This week, we complain about our least favorite movie to date: the absolute WTFery that is Happy Feet. A movie with realistic animated penguins (maybe too realistic), and a “big message” about conservation. We drop a lot of f-bombs but who can blame us with a film that is so full of racism, sexism, and weird covert sexual undertones? It’s possible that 2006 was a simpler time, but even so, this movie has some issues.

In this week’s mini episode, along with fixing our mistakes from last episode we’ll discuss the big pop culture events this weekend, no spoilers here, and ask “When is it a good time to introduce kids to the MCU?”

This week’s movie is one we love. From a giant cast full of actors we like, to a soundtrack we don’t actually mind listening to in the car, there’s a lot to appreciate here. We talk about the many feats of engineering, what true punk actually is, and how masterful the story is overall. Since we’re new, now is the time to show us and the algorithms that what we’re doing means something to you. Be sure to like us on your favorite social media channels, and tell your friends to listen. We would...

In this week's mini episode we fix a bunch of stuff we got wrong last week. We'll discuss Gaston's egg consumption, Maurice's motivation in the animated film, and why we always get weird new songs in adaptations. Since we’re new, now is the time to show us and the algorithms that what we’re doing means something to you. Be sure to like us on your favorite social media channels, and tell your friends to listen. We would especially appreciate any iTunes reviews you want to leave us. A Quick...

Beauty and the Beast S01E03

This week on the show, we’re taking a look at the live action version of Beauty and the Beast. And uh, spoilers, but...we kinda hated it. This is a hard thing to reconcile for two Millenials who grew up loving the original animated version. But alas, there was a lot we didn’t love about this movie. We talk about the differences between the live action and animated version at length, plus we discuss what becomes unintentionally more real by virtue of being live action. We also dig into the...

This week on Latchkey Movies, we fix all the crap we got wrong the last time. We’re never going to get everything right, but we like to be as precise as possible. Did we commit the most egregious of errors? Please (politely) let us know. This week, we talk about how much money Tangled actually made, the Golden Age of Disney and the Stabbington brothers. Since we’re new, now is the time to show us and the algorithms that what we’re doing means something to you. Be sure to like us on your...

When was the last time you really considered the movies your kids were watching? How often do you sit down and watch with them? What are the lessons your children are learning? Welcome to Latchkey Movies--the podcast where we take a critical look at the movies your kids are watching without your supervision. We believe that the movies our kids are watching shape their culture. We believe that even if they don't fully understand them, they internalize these messages into their personalities,...
