Nostalgia does not sell... well it doesn't sell for everyone. That doesn't mean that its always going to be a blockbuster hit or that its going to be horrible. Do we think that the critics gave Men in Black: International a fair review? No, we don't but we also have some other thoughts that we share about the film. We even make some suggestions that could make more money for Universal as we end up going down a rabbit hole discussing the universe of Men in Black.

When ever a film is remade, continued, or rebooted, its always met with the harshest of criticism and in this episode we are no different. We discuss the what we think was done right and what was lacking in the new live action film. Just like everyone else we have parts that we both wish they included and we have some different opinions on how things were passable as we nit pick the film.
We pick apart this film as we discuss the storyline, the acting, and even trailers. Do you even watch them anymore? We try not to watch to many trailers anymore for fear of getting movies like Triple Frontier getting ruined. We cover some of the logic in the story and take some time to figure out where in the world they are. We were able to identify some accents but also learned some new things about language in this movie.
Ep. 11 - Mulan

We finally decided to have a conversation about an animated film. We went with a Disney classic but during our conversation we come across some realizations about Disney, the film, and animation. Should animation films always cater to both adults and children or just the target audience? Its amazing how different a film's story will feel after you watch it again as an adult. Join us as we figure out what has changed for us and what stayed the same.
Ep. 10 - Bleach

Ep. 10 - Bleach

Another live action adaption, but its about an anime. It is never easy to re-make a classic animation that has a big following. We think we may have found a film that does its source material some justice. We also might be a couple of fanboys but that shouldn't really matter, right?
What a fantastical hallucinogenic film this was to watch or was it a complete disaster? Isaac and Jesse discuss what actually happened during the movie as they debate certain aspects that may or may not have ever been in the actual movie. Then again it could just be that Isaac and Jesse have no clue what they are talking about and imagined the whole thing. If you happen to figure it out, let us know.

Netflix created a lot of hype about Roma. Of course this meant that Jesse and Isaac had to check out the film to see what this film was all about. Lets just say we were left trying to figure things out. We both agree that the cinematography was great and left us feeling curious. Let us know if you agree with our thoughts or if you just think we belong back in the 70's.

There is a lot to unfold in the second theatrical release by Jordan Peele. Do you think you know what the intention and meaning behind the film is? One thing that Isaac and Jesse can agree on is that Peele knows horror. We might be a little to critical about the movie but maybe that is because we just don't get out much to see the world.
Its always interesting to see how comedy films have aged. Sometimes the jokes stand against the test of time and other times they start to feel a little distasteful. We start to try and find more meaning to it all but maybe we are just a bit loony and are just grasping at straws.
Ep. 05 - Bird Box

Ep. 05 - Bird Box

2019-02-2650:48

When we first started to watch this film we thought we were going to be watching a horror film. By the time we get to the end of this discussion we might have convinced each other that it is a mystery thriller. Enjoy listening to our discussion on the film, Bird Box, while we attempt to figure out a few things that didn't make sense to us in the film.
Sometimes a director has a clear vision, an artistic clear vision of what they want to present to their audience. So clear that if you are not sure what it is that they are trying to say, you might be on to something. Join us as we make an attempt not to chase down to many rabbit holes or maybe we are so far down the rabbit hole that we are the rabbit...
Ep. 03 - Piercing

Ep. 03 - Piercing

2019-02-1248:07

Based on the popular 1994 Japanese novel "Piercing" by Ryu Murakami. We make an attempt to discuss what we saw and make sense of the story but soon discover that this movie leaves us with a lot of questions.

A missing person doesn't have to end tragically, but Taylor Sheridan shows us that tragedy in his 2017 movie, Wind River. Join us as we discuss choice of scenes, actors, and plot devices. We debate on how the story could have been delivered and give our thoughts on the message behind it all.
