We debate over what makes it into the top ten, where we rank some of our personal favorites, and come to a pretty clean consensus on the top three or so. Henry also gets the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to break some crucial casting news to Samuel. Also, why we hate feature fil…
 
This week we’re traveling to the desert planet of Arrakis to cover Denis Villeneuve’s latest sci-fi epic, Dune. We talk about everything we loved about this movie, and how a lot of the things it changed from the book made sense for movie format. We also probably get a ton of lore stuff wrong, so that’s fun! Also, why we hate the mediocre success of…
 
Today on the podcast, we’re creating a list of the ten greatest films of the past decade.

This week we’re talking about Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the latest and (in Samuel’s opinion) greatest Marvel movie.

(Recorded October 4th, …

This week we review the newest addition into Netflix’s Witcher universe, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. We discuss the unoriginal art style, the surprisingly intricate ideas and philosophies within this story, and inevitably get several facts about the Witcher lore incredibly wrong. Don’t write us. Also, why we hate creativity-free jokes. (Rec…
 
Today we are talking all about cars, the 2006 movi—wait, sorry, we’re actually just talking about cars as a subject.

This week we’re reviewing Okja, Bong Joon-ho’s 2017 film for Netflix about a girl and her super-pig. Between the two of us we have some mixed feelings about this movie, so listen on as we discuss the themes, the characters, our own stances on animal rights, and the dubious portrayal of ALF in this film. Also, why we hate the Dune headlines. (Record…
 
(CW: there are brief mentions of sexual abuse during the discussion of Sonnie’s Edge and Good Hunting.)

Today we’re finally reviewing the TV show that everyone was talking about two months ago, WandaVision.

Also, why we hate Disney Plus’s interface. (Recorded April 12th, 2…

Also, why we hat…
