Ocean's Eleven

EWe could not be more excited for the upcoming Ocean’s Eightso to wet our appetites we fired up the remake of the original Ocean’s 11. Directed by Steven Soderbergh in 2001, Ocean’s Eleven brought together a stacked roster of a whole bunch of male (there are like only two speaking roles for women) actors to attempt a heist of two Vegas casinos, what ensues is fun, fast and very entertaining. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: The potential for the truly “biggest crossover in cinematic history” Very specifically talking about the specifics of our heist-specific food Our drinking rules for the film The myriad of actors who are known for their ability to get it in “one take” The ultimate reveal of the film and why it works so well in Ocean’s Eleven and doesn’t quite work in Now You See Me Just how great Fast Five is as a heist film in the framework of Ocean’s Eleven How everyone is effortlessly cool and how the conversations the characters have builds off...

Children of Men

EThis week, we sit down with the tense, powerful and prescient film: Children of Men. Listen with us as we try to step through our thoughts and feelings about a film that is not easy to watch but a powerful experience regardless. As always we don’t shy away from spoilers and lay it all out on the table. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: The concept we went with for the food for this film How the imagery and references in the film felt a little heavy handed Whether or not the acting roles of Clive Owen and Julianne Moore worked for us Dreads on white people The highs and lows of Children of Men, who liked it and who didn’t The allusions to the story of Mary and Jesus How impressive the film was in evoking tension The seemingly constant presence of animals in the film We close out on some snippets of forum threads from our deep-dive into mommy blogger culture. (Recorded on February 24, 2018) Join us on an “every other week” schedule, as we talk through a vari...

Inglourious Basterds

EWith another birthday having passed us by we sat down to celebrate André’s extra year around the sun to watch one of his favorite films: Inglourious Basterds. Also heads up but we talk openly about gun violence, nazis and the impact of both. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: Taking a firm no nazis stance at munch André dives into why he loves Tarantino so much, and what makes him and auteur director Leanna examines what she dislikes about his films or her hesitancy around it Ben talks through his frustrations around Tarantino’s films and the terminology he uses We share each of our reactions to the Hitler’s eventual death Each chapter and our thoughts to those chapters We examine the the tension of the the final theater scene and our reactions to it and the seriousness of it Which brings us to conversations about gun violence and how we feel when that is shown on screen How cultural conversations and events have impacted our viewing experience of Inglouri...

Iron Giant

EWith the “Holy Grail of Pop Culture” in theaters now, and the lovable metallic being playing a large role in the marketing for the film, we figured it was time to sit down and watch the film that has garnered a solid cult following: Iron Giant. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: Ben struggles over how to start this podcast, and the cat finds away to get us to talk about him Ready Player One and Ben continues to stumble over himself with the various Bird-men out there our menu for this film with the connective tissue of the vitamin Iron it takes a little bit to get there but we eventually talk about Iron giant and the themes it lays on pretty heavily and to great effect André dives into his thoughts about the film as someone who was worried about it considering it was a “kids film” the films small moments of impact that are no easy to pull off, but are effective when executed well our drinking rules for the film which leads us into the our respective moment...

Demolition Man

EWe finally get around to watching Demolition Man, a film that we have been planning to do for years, and that means it is time to talk a knitting Sylvester Stallone, an absolutely peppy Sandra Bullock, and a chilling and great Wesley Snipes. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: The sheer quantity of known actors in this film, and all of the wondrous films they have gone on to star in. The drinking rules, which are a doozy this time around Our confusion about how Sylvester Stallone because “a thing” Ben completely talks out his ass about Sylvester Stallone’s acting career and Action films of the 80s We compare Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson and Stallone, and if one of them is better A highlight of the film for us, the score and the zany nature of it Our overall thoughts on the Demolition Man, and our conflicted thoughts on it We dive into the politics of the film and whether or not it fully speaks with a unified voice How the film imagined future technology and wh...

Twilight

EAnd for our first official post of 2018 we gathered around, reminisced about vampires and werewolves and recorded it in podcast form about the “wonderful” film: Twilight. We are just absolutely “gushing” over how great this movie is, and the impressions it left upon us. GO TEAM JACOB!!! For a more detailed episode description we talked about: The long storied history of twilight films and the rich cinematic history they encompass Our drinking rules for this film which featured a type of synergy not normally found in our rules We quickly air our grievances about this very bad film, just to feel satisfied about breaking this film down a little bit before talking about the story itself What we loved, which is we struggle to come up with some solid options. That is on the film, not us. The symbolism of the apple on the front cover. We dive into the question that is on all of your minds “why are vampires sexy?” Which is a topic we are most definitely the best people to talk about. ...

iTunes Roulette: Kong: Skull Island

EWe have been itching to get another entry into our iTunes Roulette series in and we are back this time with Ben in the hot seat and a starting movie of xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which honestly we were all hoping I would find a way back to. Unfortunately, iTunes Roulette isn’t always so kind. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: We get a quick download on some tech questions you may have about the Apple TV Ben is incredibly bummed that he can’t find a way back to xXx: Return of Xander Cage and finally chooses Kong: Skull Island We talk about some of the great moments in the film that begins to provide an aesthetic and stylish center that was fun and enjoyable despite those moments being few and far between. Ben continues to be surprised any time André goes to Starbucks Leanna’s extensive Godzilla experience André has a million dollar copyrighted idea that is sure to changing the cinematic landscape We recast the film switch the male roles for a woman-led po...

Battleship

EOur third entry into the Tabletop Series, has us choosing coordinates on a map to determine where the enemy ship is, and eventually taking enough shots to make the film somewhat decent to watch. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: The concept for our food, which revolved around shots The drinking rules, which were very difficult to keep up with in this film The issues we had with the film, which were plenty, And we dive deep on our reasons for especially hating the main character of the film Finding ourselves rooting for the aliens at times because they hinted at more story, but never brought that back We wonder about Rihanna’s role in all of this and if she enjoyed being in this film We come up with the sequel to Battleship, titled Battleship Royale We look back over the tabletop movies we watched and which were our favorites And talk about what board games we would have to be paid in if we were paid in board games (Recorded on December 18, 2017) Join us on an...

Munch 2: Return to Jumanji

EWe have a new Podcast for you coming to you from the same stream!

This time around it for the new Dwayne Johnson vehicle Jumanji: Return to the Jungle. There will definitely be spoilers because Leanna is filling us in on all of the dirty plot details, and we have some fun imaging the different variations of this film that could exist. Haven’t seen the film or don’t want to? No problem, this podcast series is perfect for you.

Jumanji

EOur second entry into the Tabletop Series, has us visiting the wild world of Robin Williams’ classic: Jumanji. We review the film and talk about our experience watching the film all these years later. For a more detailed episode description we talked about: We clear the air on the viability of this as a board game movie We dive into our food concept for this film, which heavily featured banana leaves The originally released board game, and its connection to the movie Jumandré, the modified Jumanji board game that André made up for us to play How child actors can be hit and miss and how Stranger Things and The Florida Project have had great performances from child actors. We roll our conversation to Jumanji: Return of the Jungle and ponder on the connective tissue between the two films Leanna going to see Jumanji: Return to the Jungle and reporting back to us on her findings whether or not Robin Williams is a good actor and joke about a variety of horrible sequel titles Join us ne...
