Late To The Party - The Mitchells vs. the Machines

6/5/2024
What if your family could save the world from a robot apocalypse? On this episode of Late To The Party, we unpack the electrifying journey of "The Mitchells vs. The Machines," an animated film that blends humor, heartfelt moments, and stunning visuals. Directed by Mike Rianda, this quirky Netflix gem follows a dysfunctional family who unexpectedly become humanity's last hope. As we reflect on the film's initial hurdles and why it took a while to catch our eye, we share our thoughts on its dynamic animation, compelling storytelling, and standout characters. Comparing it to animated blockbusters like "Into the Spider-Verse" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," we highlight why "The Mitchells vs. The Machines" holds its own despite not having the same level of groundbreaking narrative. Danny McBride’s voice acting and the rest of the cast are standout elements that elevate the film. We also discuss how the movie's portrayal of modern family dynamics and clever comedy make it a must-watch, even if it doesn't reinvent the wheel in storytelling. Finally, we delve into how the humor and generational jokes play out, comparing it to films like "A Goofy Movie" and "Age of Ultron." We also pit it against recent animated hits on IMDB's recommended watch list. Wrapping up, we acknowledge its accolades at the Annie Awards and Oscars, reinforcing why this film is a solid recommendation for family viewing. Letterbox'd Synopsis: A quirky, dysfunctional family’s road trip is upended when they find themselves in the middle of the robot apocalypse and suddenly become humanity’s unlikeliest last hope. 🔻You can find all important links for the podcast over at https://linktr.ee/waitforitpodcast (which includes our brand new Patreon site!)🔺 🔻BACKGROUND MUSIC PROVIDED BY: "Extenz - Gravity" is under a Creative Commons license Music promoted by BreakingCopyright: https://bit.ly/extenz-gravity 🔺 Enjoyed the episode?

Late To The Party - Mad Max: Fury Road

5/8/2024
Have you ever sat down, completely alone, as the screen lit up with a world so chaotic yet captivating that you felt every pulse-pounding moment in your bones? That’s exactly what happened to Eric and Phil when they first saw "Mad Max: Fury Road." Join us as we break our hiatus with a bang, diving headfirst into the dystopian chaos and beauty of George Miller's masterpiece. From the unforgettable score to the relentless pace that never lets up, we've got a lot to say about this high-octane adventure. And with "Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga" on the horizon, we're revving up our engines for what's next in this gritty universe. The legend of Max Rockatansky is one shrouded in dust and mystery, and no one wears that mantle quite like Tom Hardy. But let's be honest, did he fill Mel Gibson's boots, or did he leave us parched for more of Max's past? Let's not forget the ensemble cast that brought their A-game, especially Nicholas Hoult, who deserves a victory lap for his role. Tensions, apologies, and the raw power of practical effects—it's the meaty discussion you didn’t know you needed. Reflecting on a decade since "Fury Road" tore through theaters, we're peeling back the layers of its legacy. Did it redefine what we expect from action films? Absolutely. We'll even toss around our thoughts on its influence over the eagerly awaited "Borderlands" adaptation—can it deliver the same gut punch, or will it be left in the dust? Speculation abounds as we consider alternate realities where Eminem or Heath Ledger helmed the wheel as Max. The future's looking as wild as the wasteland, with the "Furiosa" spin-off gearing up to take us back to the madness. Buckle up, listeners, because every Wednesday is a new escape into the worlds of gaming, anime, and entertainment—just wait for it. Letterbox'd Synopsis: An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. 🔻You can find all important links for the podcast over at https://linktr.ee/waitforitpodcast (which includes our brand new Patreon site!)🔺 🔻BACKGROUND MUSIC PROVIDED BY: "Extenz - Gravity" is under a Creative Commons license Music promoted by BreakingCopyright: https://bit.ly/extenz-gravity 🔺 Enjoyed the episode?

Strap in for a podcast that's part trip down memory lane and part love letter to the game that brought us together across state lines.

We reminisce about those heart-pounding, stealthy missions, the joy of a perfectly executed plan, and the sheer absurdity when it all goes to hell. There might have been some narrative and aging flaws in this gem, but we argue that the spirit of co-op play still makes it shine bright.

International Feature: Another Round

3/13/2024
Ever pondered the delicate dance between laughter and tears in the bittersweet waltz of life? Join us, Phil the Filipino and Mr. Eric Almighty, as we traverse the intoxicating narrative of "Another Round," where Mads Mikkelsen's Martin and his band of high school teachers test the limits of alcohol's influence on their mundane existence. Oscillating between the flickering sparks of revitalization and the looming shadows of excess, this episode promises to whisk you through an emotional labyrinth, where the lines of dark comedy and drama blur into a resonant reflection on the human condition. The power of a shared performance can transform simple scenes into a reflection of our own lives, and the cast of "Another Round" exemplifies this artistry. As we dissect the palpable chemistry and the riveting journey of these teachers-turned-social-experimenters, you'll be invited to consider their quest for happiness. We delve into the final act's dance sequence—a moment both triumphant and ambiguous, where Martin's fate hangs in the balance, leaving us to question the true cost of seeking joy in the bottom of a glass. Don't just take our word for the stirring potency of Vinterberg's masterpiece; the film's accolades speak volumes, with Oscar nods and critical acclaim echoing its impact.

Late To The Party - Edge of Tomorrow

3/6/2024
Ever find yourself trapped in a time loop while aliens invade Earth? Well, neither have we, but that didn't stop PhilTheFilipino and MrEricAlmighty from dissecting the mind-bending mechanics of "Edge of Tomorrow" in our latest episode of Late to the Party. We're peeling back the layers of this sci-fi action spectacle to reveal what hooked us despite our initial skepticism, and why the film's narrative gymnastics and stellar performances from Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are worth your attention. The ending of "Edge of Tomorrow" has been a hot potato among fans, and we're tossing it back and forth in a lively debate. Did the alien design hit the mark of terror it aimed for? Was the time-traveling Omega alien a stroke of genius or a plot hole in disguise? We're unpacking these burning questions while shedding light on the exceptional ensemble cast, with a special nod to Blunt's standout performance. Finally, we're wrapping up with our personal take on the film's impact and the looming question of a sequel. Is "Edge of Tomorrow" worthy of further exploration, or should this loop be closed for good? There might not be any aliens knocking at our door, but the discussion's definitely invaded our studio – and we can't wait for you to join the invasion. IMDb Synopsis: A soldier fighting aliens gets to relive the same day over and over again, the day restarting every time he dies. 🔻You can find all important links for the podcast over at https://linktr.ee/waitforitpodcast (which includes our brand new Patreon site!)🔺 🔻BACKGROUND MUSIC PROVIDED BY: "Extenz - Gravity" is under a Creative Commons license Music promoted by BreakingCopyright: https://bit.ly/extenz-gravity 🔺 Enjoyed the episode?

What Did I Miss? (February 2024 Bonus Episode)

Hey pop culture vultures, ever wondered if the winds of change at Disney might just blow "Moana 2" into theaters or what Universal's Epic Universe might have in store for thrill-seekers? Well, wonder no more. MrEric Almighty and PhilTheFilipino have got you covered, and this time the dynamic duo is joined by Jay, the Urban Weirdo with an eye for the eccentric, and Sophie, whose delightful insights are the cherry on top of our entertainment sundae. They're here to dissect the latest shifts in the industry, from the high seas of Moana's next adventure to the dino-sized developments in the Jurassic World saga. Strap in for an episode that takes you through a labyrinth of pop culture musings, from the rumors of Henry Cavill's Marvel debut to a gleeful debate on the fortunes of our favorite film and TV franchises.
