The Predator Movies

With the debut of Shane Black’s The Predator, we here at ATAIG decided to do what we normally do and take a look back at the entire Predator series leading up to this point. We revisit the original classic, the lesser-known sequel, the notorious crossover, the even MORE notorious crossover, the other lesser-known sequel, and the latest controversial installment in theaters now. There are plenty of agreements and disagreements along the way (some more surprising than others), and we hope you...


Catching Up On Your Feedback!

We're back! We've been away for a little while, but the wait is over, and to celebrate our return we're catching up on ALL of your feedback! We work our way through an entire summer's worth of comments and emails, and there are plenty of conversations and debates to be had. Hopefully, we'll be able to make this a regular segment in order to encourage fan interaction, albeit in a much more concise way. Enjoy!Hosted by Sam Noland, Anthony Battaglia, and Jason Read! Send us (more) feedback!...


The Mission: Impossible Series

With the recent release of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, we here at ATAIG thought it would be the perfect opportunity to trace the lineage of the series, from 1996 to 2018 and try to figure out just why this franchise has managed to keep going strong. We talk about the ones that worked (five of them), the one that didn’t quite work (one of them), all of the crazy stunts, and all of the insanely complicated storylines over the years. We also have an important announcement at the beginning,...


The Die Hard Movies

In celebration of Dwayne Johnson’s new action blockbuster Skyscraper, as well as the recent roast of Bruce Willis on Comedy Central, we decided to talk about the (surprisingly pretty good) series of movies known only as the Die Hard franchise. Anthony took over as host this week as we took a 25-year journey from 1988 all the way to 2013 and tried to figure out how this franchise has handily managed to keep going. Afterwards, we throw out some ideas for what we’d like to see from the...


The Taylor Sheridan Episode

In what is somehow our second longest episode to date, we decided to take a look at the quickly-escalating career of writer/director Taylor Sheridan, in honor of this summer’s controversial new release Sicario: Day of the Soldado. We discuss the themes, politics, and marketing tactics of the new release, as well as our predictions for the planned third installment. We were all surprised to find out how much we geek out over Sheridan’s stories, and we hope that you’ll give it a listen,...


The Jurassic Park Series

In what is undoubtedly our longest episode to date, we decided (against our better judgment) to revisit all five movie in the Jurassic Park franchise, from the original 1993 film all the way to the newly released Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, we dissect the few successes and many failures of the series thus far. Needless to say, we have plenty of agreements, disagreements, and insights along the way, and at the end of the show we give our individual pitches for where we’d like the...


The Brad Bird Episode

With the release of Incredibles 2, we decided to look back on the filmography of director Brad Bird, which proved to be fascinating, enlightening and exciting (for the most part). From The Iron Giant in 1999 all the way to Tomorrowland in 2015, we break down every Brad Bird directorial effort, and afterward we respond to some of your feedback and discuss Incredibles 2 in both a spoiler-free and spoiler-filled section. Enjoy! Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia! Question...


The Ocean's 11 Series

​This week, we decided to look back on the series of films that has led up to this past week’s release of Ocean’s 8. We start all the way back in 1960 with The Rat Pack, make our way through Steven Soderbergh’s trilogy, and finally arrive at the newest installment. Afterwards, we take some time to read some of YOUR feedback (we’re sorry it took this long), which will be concluded in next week’s episode. Enjoy! Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia! 0:05:39 - Ocean’s Eleven...


The Best Robots From Movies

It’s much more laid-back on ATAIG this week, because we decided to talk about some of our favorite (and possibly least favorite) ROBOTS from movies, in celebration of last week’s low-budget sci-fi thriller Upgrade (not technically a robot, but we thought it was close enough). Listen as the ATAIG crew discuss some of the most well-written, interesting, bizarre, or ridiculous mechanical beings to grace motion pictures (which is a fancy way of saying that Sam totally nerds out while Anthony and...


Star Wars Breakdown (Part 2)

Disclaimer: Our normal recording device crashed at the end of the episode (go figure), so we were forced to use a backup recording of slightly lesser quality. We apologize for the inconsistent sound of this episode. Solo: A Star Wars Story has finally been released, and we’re concluding our conversation on the entire cinematic Star Wars franchise. After a quick appetizer of a discussion on the animated Clone Wars movie from 2008, we go on a deep dive into the current era of Star Wars. From...


Star Wars Breakdown (Part 1)

PART 2 of this breakdown is now live on our main feed! Subscribe to Anyway, That's All I Got to listen now, or click here. Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters this weekend, so we decided to revisit each and every Star Wars movie, including the strange, misfit TV movies history has tried to erase. We didn’t want to force (no pun intended) every single installment into one episode, so for part 1 of our discussion we review everything from the very first movie up through the prequel trilogy....


Best Non-Disney Animated Movies

This week on Anyway, That’s All I Got, we decided to talk about something a little more relaxed than what we’re used to and discuss some animated movie recommendations. Whether they’re underseen or underrated, we talk about the animated movies we wish would get more attention than they already do. We excluded anything by Disney or Pixar, since those are talked about quite often. Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia! Question for you: What are some animated movies...


Marvel Cinematic Universe Breakdown (Part 2)

Now that Avengers: Infinity War has finally been released, we were able to continue our breakdown of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). We start by catching up on Ant-Man, which we didn’t realize was part of Phase 2, followed by our breakdown of Phase 3 (so far). From Captain America: Civil War all the way to Avengers: Infinity War, we analyze, debate, agree, and disagree about the previous 7 installments of the MCU. Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, Anthony Battaglia, and special guest...


Marvel Cinematic Universe Breakdown (Part 1)

(Note: Part 2 is now available on the official ATAIG feed. You can listen to it here.) Avengers: Infinity War is poised to take the entire world by storm this summer, so for our monthly Cinemaholics crossover episode, we're revisiting and analyzing the first 11 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From Iron Man to Avengers: Age of Ultron, we discuss the hits and misses of the first two phases of the MCU and have a fun series of agreements and disagreements along the way... Hosted by Sam...


Top 5 Supporting Characters

In honor of the unfortunate passing of R. Lee Ermey, this week we decided to count down our 5 favorite supporting characters from a whole litany of movies. We quickly realized that we had bitten off more than we could chew with this massive topic, because there are literally MILLIONS of supporting characters, but we decided to give it a shot anyway!Question for you: Who are some of your favorite supporting characters from movies? Also, what do you think it truly takes to be a good supporting...


Top 5 Most Suspenseful Movies

In honor of the release of A Quiet Place, the ATAIG crew got together to count down their top 5 most suspenseful movies! It's a very broad, personal, and subjective topic, so our lists ended up being very diverse and indicative of our own sensibilities. There are plenty of obvious choices, but there are also plenty of surprising revelations along the way... Question for you: What movies did you find to be the most suspenseful? Also, what tends to get under your skin when it comes to suspense...


The Wes Anderson Episode

This week on Anyway, That’s All I Got, we decided to tackle Wes Anderson’s entire filmography in a broad, chronological overview. We start in 1994 with the original Bottle Rocket and work all the way forward to the newly-released Isle of Dogs. We all have a variety of strong opinions on his filmography, so this discussion takes some very interesting turns. 0:07:36 - Introduction to Wes Anderson 0:13:40 - Bottle Rocket (1994) 0:16:40 - Bottle Rocket (1996) 0:25:39 - Rushmore (1998) 0:33:57 -...


Movies We Actually Saw With Our Families

The ATAIG crew is back with a list of their favorite movies they watched with their families...whether they wanted to or not. The episode is chocked full of nostalgia, tangents, and bad puns (mostly by Sam). We talk about The Birdcage, Big Fish, Point Break, Planet of the Apes, and plenty more with special guest Guy Simons. We hope you enjoy listening, and we'd love to know what some of your favorite movie-related family memories are. Let us know at, or email us at...


Top 5 Space Movies

We didn't have time to record a new episode this week, but we didn't want to leave you with nothing, so we decided to do a throwback episode and re-release an episode of our previous show, The Unnamed Podcast About Movies. The topic was our top 5 outer space movies, and there were certainly some surprises along the way. It was recorded in late January, so some of the things we say may seem a bit dated at this point, but we'd like to think of it as a blast from the past, or at least from two...
