E11 Kubo and the Two Strings

8/19/2019
More
This week, we watch the brilliantly animated Kubo and the Two Strings. This movie is enthralling and exceptionally well told, but it suffers from a classic case of Hollywood whitewashing. While we have yet to find evidence of this story as one that is traditionally Japanese, the gods and places certainly are. As a result, we constantly felt out of place and time. It’s too bad, because this one could have been amazing.

E10.5 The Lion King Mini

8/12/2019
More
This week we fix the mistakes we made while talking about The Lion King and give credit where credit is due to Jordan Peele.

Duration:00:06:12

E10 The Lion King

8/5/2019
More
This week we are trying something new, our first ever episode discussing a movie currently in theaters. We talk about what we love and hate about the 1994 and 2019 versions of The Lion King. As usual, we spend more time on the cast than the actual movie, but trust us--you've seen this one.

More

E09 Wreck it Ralph

7/22/2019
More
This week we spend a lot of time talking about snack foods so please eat before listening or you may find yourself with a donut craving. No cuts, no buts, no coconuts. We also talk about bullies, pop culture references that don’t age well, and the necessity of tragic backstories for female characters.

E08.5 The Angry Birds Mini

7/15/2019
More
This week, while fixing our errors from last week, we find ourselves mostly talking about video game movies, again.

Duration:00:06:48

E08 The Angry Birds

7/8/2019
More
This week, we’re taking a look at Rovio’s The Angry Birds Movie (the "The" is important). There’s a lot that’s awful about this movie, but we can at least promise you a new level of swearing in this episode. Also casual misogyny, an overemphasis on breeding, and a whole bunch of other shit we don’t understand.

E07.5 Frozen Mini

7/1/2019
More
This week we fix some errors we made last week while talking about Frozen including finally getting the correct name for Jesse St James' vocal group, because we know you have been waiting anxiously.

E07 Frozen

6/24/2019
More
No surprise, this week we have a lot of thoughts about Disney’s 2013 movie Frozen. Mostly, what’s the point of Olaf, Did Rapunzel and Eugene really attend Elsa’s coronation, and are the trolls kidnappers?

E06.5 The Lego Movie Mini

6/17/2019
More
This week I'm fixing some mistakes from our The Lego Movie episode from last week and going into details on Marvel vs DC.

Duration:00:09:33

E06 The Lego Movie

6/10/2019
More
This week we'll talk about The Lego Movie which may have had more of an impact on the way we parent than we give it credit for.

Duration:01:21:01

E05.5 The Incredibles Mini

6/3/2019
More
So, we have to talk about Kevin. As in, Kevin the weird bird from Pixar’s Up. Kevin is a key component to the Grand Unifying Theory of Pixar Movies, and as such, he’s one of the stars of this very special minisode. This week, both Briar and Sara are here, and we’re talking about that bird, Steve Jobs, and Luxo the lamp (who we mistakenly refer to as Lumo).

Memorial Day Note

Just a quick message to say there wont be a new episode this week, we're spending time with our families, but come back next week for the Incredibles Mini Episode.

E05 The Incredibles

5/20/2019
More
In this week’s episode, we take a look at 2004’s The Incredibles. Winner of two Academy Awards (Best Animated Feature and Best Sound Editing), this film was Pixar’s superhero opus. We talk about how this movie prompted changes in the original Fantastic Four, and the parallels between this film and several others. As Pixar’s first PG movie, we also talk about all of the violence, and how bad guys actually die on screen. This feels noteworthy to us, and signals a change in our tolerance for...

E04.5 Happy Feet Mini

5/13/2019
More
This week we fix a few mistakes we made last week and also talk a bit about what it means to be “uncredited”.

Duration:00:08:33

E04 Happy Feet

5/6/2019
More
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.
