Given its release date, the final episode of M.U.R.I.C.A. could be about nothing else than the most American movie that America has ever America'd: National Treasure! Although, to be frank, if Nic Cage had been on Team America: World Police, this choice would have been much, much harder.Join Luciano, Matt and Spencer (yep, they went Chris-less this time around) on their discussion of this nice, cozy reminder of simpler times, when stealing the Declaration of Independence would have been considered one of the most egregious, un-American things an American could possibly do. 👀
In the second to last installment of M.U.R.I.C.A. the nerds flipped the script a bit and went for the newest Nic Cage movie (as of the publication of this episode, at least), rather than a classic: The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, a movie as weird and insane as its title is long and .With a movie as bonkers as this one, I'm sure you can imagine how unhinged the conversation went and, for once, you would not be wrong. So make sure to rejoice, dear always-wrong person, in this truly solitary moment of your existence
In this installment of M.U.R.I.C.A., You're Wrong's celebration of the life and works of Nic Cage, the nerds (minus Spencer; his computer jumped off a bridge) tackled the 2000's remake of Gone in 60 Seconds. Yes, it's a remake and no, you haven't heard of a single one of the actors on the cast of the original 1974 movie.This is a movie that really shows its age, much more so than the previous two. There are a couple of very... problematic... things in it, things that would cause everyone involved with it to be tarred and feathered if it was released nowadays — and rightly so, might I add. It's also a movie that has a lot of people in it. And I do mean a LOT. Enough to fill the cast of two movies, really. And not all of those actors are, uh... great at their craft, let's put it. I mean, it's one thing to have an ensemble cast; it's completely another to just cram everybody and their dog (literally!) into a movie for... reasons, I guess?
Welcome, friends, to You're Right's 100th episode! That's right: 100 weeks of uplifting conversations and sending nothing but loving energy and good vibes out into the world! In this most auspicious of occasions, our dear friends Chris, Luciano, Matt and Spencer discussed another wonderful Nic Cage movie, Face/Off, as part of their zestful new series, M.U.R.I.C.A.! I can barely wait for you to treat yourself by listening to this new masterpiece of positivity and cheerfulness! ✨____________________MUSICInspirational Background by AudioCoffee
Welcome to a new You're Wrong series! In this one, your favourite nerds will be celebrating the work and career of one of the greatest thespians ever to grace the silver screen: Nicolas Cage! The name they chose for this new series? M.U.R.I.C.A., obviously. What else could it possibly have been? The first "masterpiece" they decided to discuss was Ghost Rider. You know, that Marvel movie with an amazing, intricate storyline, incredible visual effects, superb acting and deep, complex character arcs, that came out way (read: about a year) before the MCU got its start with Iron Man. A movie so memorable nobody completely forgot existed (nor wish it didn't).Enjoy! 😬
The final episode of G.U.I.N.N.E.S.S. is upon us and, really, what kind of a You're Wrong mini-series would this be if the nerds didn't find some way to talk about Star Wars? So, to close off this epic event, Chris, Luciano and Matt are joined once again by their buddy Mike to talk about Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, a movie as ambitious and hyped up (at the time) as its title is long.Everyone had very personal experiences with this movie, from self-gaslighting into thinking it was a masterpiece to watching it literally several dozen times in the span of a month (and everything in between), and that insanity certainly shone through in the conversation — which included a way too long discussion about the midi-chlorian count of several prominent Jedi. And that wasn't even the craziest part.
The second installment of G.U.I.N.N.E.S.S. is all about the unpolished tur— I mean gem that is Darkman! On the heels of Tim Burton's Batman, acclaimed auteur Sam Raimi pondered thoroughly and concluded "hey, I bet I can do that, too!". And, by God, do it he did.The nerds (still Spencer-less, unfortunately) are once again joined by the ever-jovial Scott to eviscer— I mean, analyse and discuss their thoughts and opinions on what might be the most 90's movie of all 90's movies.
Here at You're Wrong, the term "March Madness" has nothing to do with basketball or the NCAA. Instead, this is the month we celebrate just pure madness, which is why we're launching the much-awaited G.U.I.N.N.E.S.S.!In the first episode of this epic event, Chris, Luciano and Matt were joined by Matt's better-half Laura to tackle a classic Liam Neeson vehicle: Cold Pursuit. It's, uh... it's a movie. With, like, actors and stuff. Well, a lot of their characters die (sorry... spoiler alert, I guess). Also, some of them just kind of, like, fuck off mid-movie and never come back. It truly is a thespian masterpiece.What's that? What does G.U.I.N.N.E.S.S. mean? Well, that's too obvious – if you don't know it already, I'm not gonna be the one to explain it to you. 😤
Yeah, yeah, Green Lantern isn't part of the DC Extended Universe, we all know it. The thing is, Luciano had never watched it before, and Chris, Matt and Spencer felt like this was unfair... to them, since the three of them had seen it before. So they went and "convinced" him to do an episode about it, so he was forced to watch it. They clearly didn't think the idea through very well, though, because this meant they had to go watch it again, this time in full knowledge of what they were going to be subjecting themselves to. Well, nobody ever thought they were the brightest, anyway. And, if you ask me, making Luciano suffer through it is worth that pain. 😈 Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
They've complained. They've whined and bellyached. They've nitpicked. They have poked, prodded and otherwise manhandled each and every DC Extended Universe movie released so far. Now, it's time for them to tell us where they would go from here. This week, Chris, Luciano, Matt and Spencer have fixed the fucking DCEU. Being the prima donnas we know they are, each of them obviously felt the need to come up with their own ideas, so we actually get FOUR potential fixes to choose from. They each picked their favourite out of the other three options at the end, and you, dear listener, will get to vote on your preferred option as well (make sure to follow @yourewrongcast on Twitter to get notified when the poll is posted!).  Hopefully, with these many options and so much guidance on which ones everyone prefers, Warner Bros. will finally be able to make a good decision for a change? Eh, I wouldn't count on it. 😒Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
This is it! This week, You're Wrong takes on the very last of the current batch of DC Extended Universe movies: Wonder Woman 1984!  I'll be honest: I was actually quite excited about this being the movie they'd concluded their extended DCEU analysis on. I thought, "another Wonder Woman movie, yay! The first one was fun, and this one doesn't have to get into all of that 'origins' crap that first movies need to go through! It can just jump straight into another heartwarming, hopeful story, right? And, holy shit, it's set in the 80's! This is going to be magical! Even those grumpy assholes won't be able to stay grumpy watching this one!"... Hoo, boy. 😟😓Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
They're finally at the home stretch of their DC Extended Universe deep dive here on You're Wrong! Today, the topic of discussion is second-to-last movie from the current DCEU line-up: Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) – quite possibly the most obnoxious movie title in the history of space and time. Here's the thing: this one should have actually been two movies. Two separate, almost completely unrelated movies, in fact. But, as we know, Warner Bros. gonna Warner Bros., so what we got was some weird film version of the Frankenstein monster that introduces new, potentially important characters...  by focusing mainly on a completely different (and already introduced!) one. Oh, and one that introduces a wonderfully-hammy new villain and then completely obliterates him, beyond any possible logical salvation.Way to go, WB. Way to go. 🙄Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
Another week, another analysis of a DC Extended Universe movie! This time, our intrepid hosts will be discussing Shazam! (yes, we're definitely using the acronym; pay no mind to the idiot who wrote the summary... that guy doesn't even know how to format his text properly). One way or another, it seems like all 4 of them at least had fun with the movie, which long-time listeners of this podcast will recognise for the rarity that it is. Well, at least for Luciano and Matt, being the crotchety old farts that they are. Spencer doesn't seem to have reached their levels of grumpiness yet, but I reckon it's only a matter of time. Chris might be spared, though. Even churlishness won't go to Whitby if it can help it. Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
The You're Wrong crew (yeah, I'm done typing all their dumb names – there's too many of them now, and you know who they are) continues their analysis of the DC Extended Universe movies. This week, they'll be squabbling about Aquaman!This movie really got the lads fired up. Whetted their interest. Titilated them. Yeah... it was a very thrilling film to watch... Huh? No, no! Ew. What I meant was that their eyeballs were pleased. They were optically delighted, as it were. Get your mind out of the gutter, sheesh.  Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
Next on Matt and Luciano's (and Chris and Spencer's) deep dive into the movies of the DC Extended Universe is a wonderful breath of fresh air: Wonder Woman!Set 100 years in the past, in the dawn of the 20th century, this one tells the story of Diana's journey from Amazon princess to fully-fledged hero: her origins, in the wonderland island of Themyscira; her first encounter with Man – one Steve Trevor, who wonders into the magically-hidden isle by accident; her departure from the safety of her ancestral home into the "real" world, a place that quickly fills her with both dread and wonderment; the full impact of humanity's darker side and the wonderlessness of war; and the final fulfilment of her destiny, starting with her wonderworks on the war front and culminating in a wondrous battle against the enemy she was born to counter. You're not going to want to miss this one!(No puns or calembours were harmed in the making of this description.) Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
Continuing their extended (and extensive) reperusal of the DC Extended Universe movies, Luciano and Matt, along with Chris and Spencer, take on the massive turd known as Suicide Squad. No, not The Suicide Squad – that one hasn't come out yet (as of the publishing of this episode). This is the original turd (and hopefully the only turd... Margot Robbie deserves better). Anyway, I digress. Oh, do you know who else digresses (a lot)? All four of those nerds. Holy shit, you'd think that they wouldn't blabber on for TWO HOURS about a movie they all pretty much agree sucks, but they did. Hell, the episode is almost as long as the goddamned movie itself! What the fuck is this, a play by play? Geez...Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
Moving along on their journey to analyse the movies of the DC Extended Universe, Matt and Luciano are once again joined by Spencer and Chris, this time to discuss Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.This is a movie with a notoriously convoluted plot, woefully bad takes on beloved characters (I'm looking at you, Jesse Eisenberg), iconically-shitty scenes (still looking at you, Jolly Rancher boy... not to mention the memetastic "Martha v Martha" resolution to the titular fight). Will Chris and/or Spencer still find it in themselves to somehow think this is a good movie, despite all that? Will Luciano and/or Matt, for that matter, even in spite of themselves? Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
As you know, at the end of the last episode, Luciano and Matt realised just how wrong Chris and Spencer (and you) were about Snyder Cut, so the decided they needed to go back to the beginning and analyse the entire DC Extended Universe with them along for the ride, so that they (and you) can finally understand the error of their (and your) ways.So this is how we find ourselves here, listening to them talk about the movie that gave birth to the DCEU: Superman Begins! I mean, Man of Steel! What are its faults and what are its merits? How did the decisions made prior to and during this movie affect and influence the cinematic universe it spawned? How badly did Warner Bros. shit the bed right from the get-go (spoiler alert: very)? Does anyone in this episode know how math or numbers work in any way, shape or form (spoiler alert: not really)?  Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
I really wanted to say "moving on to the next movie in Matt and Luciano's deep dive into the DCEU", but apparently they have friends who are not only completely wrong about the Snyder Cut, but also don't even have the decency of being ashamed about it.  Ever the gracious friends, our hosts, in their vaunted benevolence, decided to give said friends – Chris *bleep* and Spencer – a venue to humiliate themselv— uh, that is, explain the reasons behind their (wrong) opinions about Zack's Snyder's take on Justice League.Gird your loins again, everyone. Shit got real (dumb) this week!Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
Welcome to a new You're Wrong series! This time, spurred on by the much-awaited release of the Zack Snyder's Justice League (a.k.a. the Snyder Cut), Luciano and Matt will endeavour to analyse and discuss the movies of the DC Extended Universe!And what better entry to start with than the Snyder Cut itself? It's rare to see a movie be "fixed" and re-released after critiques have been made and complaints have been filed, especially one that can draw from movies that came after the original was released. Moreover, this is a 4-hour-long behemoth of a movie – try to imagine just how much complaining those two can cram in about it? Besides... SEO gold like this doesn't just grow on trees, you know.So strap in (no, seriously... this thing is ginormous. I'm shook they kept it under 2 hours, to be honest) and come hear what the crotchety old fogeys have to say about this one! Music:Basic Implosion by Kevin MacLeodLink:
