Booksmart and Long Shot

This week it was all about comedies and defying expectations, as we got a sneak peek at the wonderful coming of age, women positive, high school film Booksmart. Afterwards we are impressed by the chemistry between Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron in the absurd, but fun, political laugh-fest Long Shot.


Avengers: Endgame SPOILERCAST

SPOILERS, I REPEAT, SPOILERS. We saw Avengers: Endgame on opening night and we have lots to talk about including: What actually happened, who died, what arcs we loved / hated, and what the ending means for the next phase of the MCU. If you haven't seen Endgame yet, wait to listen to this episode!


Penguins, Under the Silver Lake, and Some Non-MCU Superhero Movies

We are big fans of a tiny penguin named Steve in Disney Nature's Penguins, and we love the bonkers mystery present in Under the Silver Lake. Afterwards we talk about some Non-MCU Superhero movies that we like, and hate, as we gear up for Avengers: Endgame.


The Highwaymen, Pet Sematary, The Public and Hellboy

Lots of mediocre movies this week, and we're here to give you the scoop! We talk really slow about the old man police story of The Highwaymen, lament Pet Sematary not spending enough time on their characters, respect the intent of The Public but wish for better execution. As for Hellboy ... the less spoken about it, the better.


Endgame Tickets, Opening Night Movies, The Beach Bum and Shazam!

We somehow survived the Avengers Endgame ticket sale, and we're here to report back on how it all went down. Afterwards we talk about the movies that we just had to see opening day, and if Endgame has what it takes to dethrone Avatar and Titanic. Movie-wise this week we talk about the very odd and divisive Beach Bum and the wonderfully fun Shazam!


Gloria Bell, Hotel Mumbai, The Mustang and Dumbo

Action packed episode as we talk about character studies, and very upsetting films. We gush about the authentic Gloria Bell, left a bit queasy by Hotel Mumbai, feel hopeful with The Mustang, and ponder leaving the theater with Dumbo. All this, inductions into The Pyramid and so much more!


Triple Threat and US

This week Kristen gushes about all the over the top martial arts action in Triple Threat, and then we welcome our very good friend Mr. Khon onto the show to help us break down the many layers to the latest Jordan Peele horror movie US.


Peeps Taste Test, Captive State and Triple Frontier

Our local store had way too many Peep flavors, so we decided to do a taste test on the Podcast! After that we talk about two movies that have many twists, with the sci-fi revolution Captive State and the all-star cast anchoring Triple Frontier for Netflix.


Our Anticipated Movies For Spring 2019

We go through our most anticipated movies for the Spring Season 2019! As always we know that we haven't talked about every movie, and release dates can change at any point, but these are the movies that we are excited to potentially see in the coming months.


Captain Marvel

We do a deep dive on our thoughts on the latest film in the MCU, Captain Marvel. While the movie was fine, it definitely has some issues or shortcomings that we dive into. At 29:40 we discuss some spoilers on what happened in Captain Marvel and how that might tie into the larger MCU so if you don't want 10 minutes of small spoilers, skip ahead to 40:00


Oscar Reactions & One Year Anniversary

We utilize the doldrums of February to talk about our reactions to the 91st Academy Awards, and also celebrate our one year Podcast Anniversary discussing how our movie viewing habits have changed. We also have a big announcement that will change how the shows operates going forward!


Cold Pursuit and Fighting With My Family

Bit of a slow week as we are waiting for major releases in March to start hitting. We are baffled by the shot for shot remake that is Cold Pursuit, but are pleased by the solid underdog story that is Fighting With My Family. Then while adding some new members to the Pyramid, we discuss movies that we could watch endlessly. Please email us at to let us know what movies are go to films for your rewatching pleasure.


And The 2019 Oscar Goes To ...

Our panel of "experts" give you their thoughts on who will win the major awards at the 2019 Academy Awards, and the films that SHOULD win if they were in charge. We also talk about Bradley Cooper way too much. Please email us at for all your thoughts on the 2019 Oscars.


Post Vacation Catch-Up, Isn't It Romantic and Alita: Battle Angel

After our vacation hiatus, our team of movie lovers is back and ready to review some films! Kristen talks through all of the films she watched on her own the past two weeks including Free Solo, The Upside, Velvet Buzzsaw and more. Afterwards we talk about our Valentine's Day group date to see Isn't It Romantic, and then the monumental disappointment that is Alita: Battle Angel.


Mortal Engines, Serenity Spoilercast and Oscar Nomination Reactions

So I guess you could say we watched movies this week? Kristen lets us know about the baffling Mortal Engines, we go full SPOILERCAST on the new Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway film Serenity, and then we breakdown the surprises and the snubs from the Oscar Nominations.


Predictions for the 92nd Academy Awards Nominations

Awards season is upon us, and we have opinions on what we think will get nominated at the 92nd annual Academy Awards. This was a tough exercise in that our hearts want very different things than what the Academy usually nominates. All three of us made predictions for various categories and we walk you through what we agreed on as a group, and where we differed and what our thought process was. Listen to this before the nominations are announced to get ready, or listen after the nominations...


Destroyer, Glass and Suspiria

A snow storm tried to derail our podcast recording this week, but nothing gets in the way of telling our fine listeners about movies! This week Kristen gives us the low-down on the Nicole Kidman revenge story Destroyer, we ride the roller coaster of quality that is Glass, and then we all watched the 2018 "remake" of Suspiria which just has a lovely cult in it. All that, more inductions into the Pyramid and so much more!


Replicas, Bird Box and Golden Globes Reactions

We've hit the desolate, barren tundra that is January movies, but we pressed on anyways! This week we see Keanu Reeves spit ludicrous techno-babble at us with Replicas, discuss the cultural phenomenon that is Bird Box, and discuss Bradley Cooper's awful suit and Rami Malek trying to get Nicole Kidman's attention at the Golden Globes.


If Beale Street Could Talk and Escape Room

It's the first week of 2019 so we decide to catch up on films from 2018! We talk about the heavy but beautifully done If Beale Street Could Talk, the next film from acclaimed director Barry Jenkins who last did Moonlight. To lighten the mood up, we get together in a small theater and see the horror / thriller film Escape Room which is fantastic and exactly what you think it is.


2018 Personal Awards (Part 2)

We spent a lot of time in our first part of the 2018 Personal Awards, crapping on a lot of really poor films and trends. This time around though, we really want to highlight all the best films that we saw and some of the greatest coincidences that we noticed. This episode we give out our awards for: 2018 Coincidence Award, Best Trailer, Best Pantsuit, Best Performance, Worst Movie, Top 10 Movies of the Year, Best Movie
