31 - Suspiria

10/27/2021
Ah it's spooky season again here on NNUTS. Have you ever thought to yourself, "Wow, this Tilda Swinton movie is great, but I wish she played two roles, no, three roles, and I wish that she created a false identity in real life with his own IMDB and entirely separate movie posters to cast as one of those roles"? If you have, you are probably gravely mentally ill, and these movies will be right up your alley! Wow this is some freaky stuff, I'm not kiddin' man, it's NSFT. Not safe for...

30 - Candyman

10/13/2021
The critics are really buzzing about this one. Candyman is a horror franchise that hooks you from the beginning and is equally concerned with providing scares as it is with having something smart and charming to say - something we've come to find is synonymous with Jordan Peele's excellent modern work. Here we pay tribute to horror icon Tony Todd and do our best to even be kind to the forgotten sequels, even if they are b(ee) movies. So what I'm trying to say is, if you don't like this one,...

29 - Suicide Squad

8/26/2021
So that's it? What, we're some kinda... Suicide Squad podcast? From Jared Leto's insane backstage antics to Silvester Stallone voicing an insatiable bipedal shark, here we celebrate just how good it feels to be bad. Despite being perhaps the least surprising takes we will ever give on the quality of the make/remake, there's a lot to unpack in a franchise with such huge (and we mean huge) stars. Even if it sometimes feels like we Weasel our way out of giving these things a fair shot, we...

28 - Space Jam

8/12/2021
Come on and slam! Slam the new movie! And welcome to the jam! Just jam as many media properties as possible into the remake so the audience doesn't question the plot! There is always a sort of sadness when a beloved childhood film is revived only to be trotted out and trampled upon. With such high hopes for this loony adventure, would it be a stretch to say it's a slam dunk? Or can Warner Brothers take a swig of Michael's secret stuff and save this thing in the second half? In retrospect it...

27 - Cruella

7/7/2021
Our first episode covering new content for a franchise we've already covered before for its remake. Confused? It would be understandable if you're getting deja vu, but don't adjust your audio dial because those adorable spotted pups are back and this time they're horrifying. Watch Emma Stone chew the scenery in the prequel that gets you to sympathize with one of the most heinous villains of all time. Did you imagine when you saw her that she'd be the protagonist of a beautifully-shot fashion...

26 - Watership Down

6/9/2021
A cute little episode. An absolutely adorable, bloody, religiously-motivated, death-fearing tiny little episode about fuzzy bunnies. JRR Tolkien gets a lot of credit for world-building in Middle Earth but Richard Adams did it all with rabbits. This franchise is one part Lord of the Rings, one part The Walking Dead, one part FernGully, all parts deceptively cool. What happens when a piece of media is lauded for its groundbreaking animation style but the remake (even with an all-star voice...

25 - Mortal Kombat

5/12/2021
Test your might! From humble beginnings in 90s arkades to international phenomenon, this franchise, including the worst-rated movie we've kovered so far, brings together the mightiest warriors from Earthrealm and Outworld to do battle in deadly, cheesy, bloody (toasty!) goodness. The krux of this discussion revolves around the kuestion of whether or not a movie requires a karacter to be an "audience analogue" - if not, how else kan we dump exposition before smashing all of our chess pieces...

24 - Justice League

5/1/2021
Truth, Justice, and the shortest time difference that we've covered so far on NNUTS between Make and Remake. But is it a remake? And wow, you talk about a franchise going off the rails. The hits just keep coming here. Can our beloved heroes roll with the punches? The DCEU is really a case study in how crucial editing is in turning out a polished product. Not necessarily the research, per se, going into the actual, you know, script, on the podcast episode, or movie, sorry, but the editing,...

23 - Godzilla vs Kong

4/14/2021
It's got that big-fight feel! Finally, the culmination of our coverage of these colossal creatures. The great ape and the king lizard square off for the heavyweight title of the monster world on the grandest stage of them all. After dozens of movies where the directors and producers make the rookie mistake of assuming the audience cares about the human characters, we get to shovel handfuls of popcorn and settle in to witness some big meaty beasts slappin' meat. What could be better? But...

22 - Godzilla (The American Movies)

3/24/2021
The third of our four-part arc about the Legendary Entertainment monster franchise brings us to the famous and infamous American Godzilla movies. What happens when you get a $100 million budget to make a giant lizard movie but decide it's not really what you're interested in making? What about when you cast Matthew Broderick but he's lost his Bueller-cool? Maybe the solution is to bring in the most talented television actor of the new millennium? No, let's kill him. What if we bring in some...
