This week Jim and Ted go extra terrestrial with three “out of this world” connected trailers. The theme is a stretch but so is getting to the moon on slide rulers, chalk, paper and pencil. They get through some of the great trailers that came out in the glut of Trailer-palooza 2018 (when 20 or so trailers releases in the first week of June).We had a fan suggestion with the older but releasing a couple of weeks ago, Mr. Rogers documentary. They also included the teaser for the Tim Burton /...


Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck it Ralph 2, BumbleBee & The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

This week Jim and Ted host Bryce with his 8-year-old perspective. Ted gives you a bunch of Three Word Reviews to cover all the trailers that were released this week. We can’t talk about them all, so Ted does what he can.


Peppermint, The Sisters Brothers, and The Happytime Murders

In Jennifer Garner’s latest movie, Peppermint, we finally have a good use of the trailer to the trailer. The audio bite used from Jennifer Garner is not repeated in the body of the main trailer. It’s additive without being repetitive. The other trailers this week are refreshing in their takes on genres that could use new takes. The Sisters Brothers gives a comedic twist to a gritty western while preserving the verisimilitude of a Westworld real western. We end with the The Happy Time...


The Upfronts

All the major networks (and this year ABC added freeform) still did their Upfronts (a dog and pony show where stars are brought out in front of a theatre full of advertisers and they get to enjoy pandering and extended trailers.) Jimmy Kimmel does some light roasting and NBC tries to sell shorter commercials, less ads - like a bad ripoff of Jerry Maguire. But CBS has a large core audience in the linear space and they intend on keeping them there as long as the TVs can stay on, long after...


Mile 22, Black Klansman, & Bohemian Rhapsody

It’s episode 27 and Jim & Ted are reviewing Mile 22, the latest in a long legacy from Peter Berg. From there they talk about Black Klansman… A Spike Lee Film, if you can believe it. Actually, Jim & Ted can believe it. They wrap things up with their anchor trailer of Bohemian Rhapsody. Both Jim & Ted are excited to see this movie in a theater with great sound. Enjoy!


The Yellow Birds, Adrift, & Leave No Trace

This week Jim and Ted meet the challenge, and by meet the challenge we mean they watch some trailers about people who endure extreme pressure from war and natural disaster then return home in turmoil with the pressures of our modern civilization. Jim does not like Ted’s 3 word reviews for this week… Something about brothers and mothers. What the…?


Mary Shelley, Succession, & Uncle Drew

This week to celebrate our silver anniversary (25 weeks of doing this podcast) Jim and Ted are joined by their better halves to record at The Solvang Brewery on Cinco De Mayo. Let’s see what happens!


Woman Walks Ahead, Venom, & A Kid Like Jake

We know we just gave you our A24 Trailerspective, but since this is our 24th episode and Woman Walks Ahead moved us on so many levels we thought, why not another one from A24? Molly’s Game was our first podcast and now we have Jessica Chastain in another powerful female lead role. Sam Rockwell can add his Academy Award Winning credentials to this one to boost the casting cred! In one day the Venom trailer amassed 14 million views on the official site and anywhere from 1 million to 10...


Equalizer 2, Westworld Season 2, & Lost in Space

Not even Ted’s love of Denzel and Antoine Fuqua can excite them into going and seeing this film. A great trailer but without feeling any peril for the lead Jim and Ted will only happen upon this movie accidentally while streaming. From the big screen Jim and Ted move to the small screen with big players and big budgets. As HBO and Netflix show some ambition with their respective series. No matter what Ted talks about when he mentions Lost in Space whether it be at a Bat mitzvah or with...


The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Ideal Home, & The Meg!

This week Jim & Ted tackle a theme they didn’t realize they were tackling. It’s sort of a dramatic comedic theme surround three very different trailers. One of these movies took more than two decades to finish. There’s lot’s of questions asked and some were answered leaving more questions to be answered. Well, that made sense in my head. Enjoy!


A24’s Under the Silver Lake, First Reformed, & How to Talk to Girls at Parties

With the success of Lady Bird and The Disaster Artist A24 has carved a special niche for itself with some interesting 2018 films spanning and hybridizing many genres. This week Jim and Ted take a look at Under the Silver Lake, First Reformed and How to Talk to Girls at Parties.


TAG, The House of Tomorrow, & The House with a Clock in Its Walls

This week Jim & Ted are back to their typical show. Not sure what happened last week, or why the Lady Junkies took over their mics. Perhaps it was an April Fools joke or something. Can you ever forgive us? There are three trailers this week, TAG, The House of Tomorrow, and The House with a Clock in its Walls. Enjoy the show. Jim asked the question, why are they called trailers when they come before the movie? Here’s the quick answer. Way back when, trailers came at the end of the movie,...


Can You Forgive Me? and Overboard 2018

This week Jim & Ted have a twist. They discuss two trailers this week that might be a little off beat from their typical discussion. They also talk about Ted’s childhood soap opera watching and how Jim struggles with pronouncing ethnic names. We just hope you want us back next week.


Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Avengers: Infinity War, & Sorry to Bother You

This week Jim & Ted discuss the desired time period of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series then get into reviewing Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Avengers: Infinity War takes the stage and Jim rants about “Explosion Movies”. Finally, Ted finds a gem of a trailer with Sorry to Bother You. Leave us a review and enjoy the show.


Fahrenheit 451, Ralph Breaks the Internet & Ready Player One

This week Jim & Ted try to escape from the real world a bit with three films that discuss the limits of human thought. First up an HBO remake of the Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel, Fahrenheit 451. The two most popular Michaels are pitted against each other in this dystopian allegory about burning books. This is not the first film adaptation (in 1966 Truffaut adapted this) but Jim and Ted are excited to see HBO’s take on this subject. On the lighter side Ralph Breaks the Internet and Ted...


The Solo Cup Final for Best Trailer

For the complete experience visit This week we have a special poster. This is an image based on a Guillermo del Toro sketch and it evokes the passion of Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss. As an auteur, Guillermo had control of every aspect of creation. TJP has our Solo Cup, Hockey has the Stanley Cup and Sweden has the Guldbaggen.


Deadpool 2 and Many Dark Hours

For the most complete expereince visit Diving into this week’s deep dive we find out that Jim’s just not into superhero movies. Ted does his best to angle for a few standouts like Black Panther and Deadpool. But this week we take a look at the Deadpool 2 trailer featuring Cable. Part of the fun of the Deadpool franchise is the self-referential nature of the humor. This is also the second week in our bracket for the TJP Solo Cup for the best Trailer. Call Me...


Star Wars Solo & Best 2018 Oscar Trailers

Wow! This week Jim & Ted cover a lot of ground. Before getting into the #TJPdeepDIVE for this week, Solo, A Star Wars Story, they discuss the trailers that premiered during the Super Bowl.


Joaquin Phoenix, A Trailer-Spective

Can you learn all you need to know about an actor from trailers? Jim and Ted try and find out. Joaquin Phoenix has had a long career and quiet a variety of films but something about his look gives his audience the idea that it’s him acting there, and surprisingly - that is a comforting feeling. Up first this week is this indie flick with Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara and Jack Black in the streaming film, Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot.


Miller’s Crossing Poster Critique

This week Jim and Ted decided to critique this timeless movie poster.
