We're still back!Officially the first ep of the season, this week we talk all things 'Love, Wedding, Repeat'. Fun premise, woeful execution; great cast, woefully underused; great setting, mostly used quite well to be fair.

The Emoji Movie (2017)

The Emoji Movie (2017)

2020-12-1501:35:02

This we go completely unhinged with as we attempt to make The Emoji Movie something other than a grim corporate cash grab. We decide to start from scratch and write on the fly a screenplay from scratch. Our film doesn't feature the voices of T.J. Miller, Anna Faris, and James Corden in a horribly designed world in side a mobile phone. Instead, we bring the emojis into the real world and have them alongside none other than James Marsden (as himself) as he struggles in LA to get an acting gig that doesn't require him to act alongside a much loved character rendered in 3-D CGI animation. It only gets weirder from there. This is the season finale, so we just want to say thank you to everyone that's listened this season and we'll be back with more saving cinema in the new year!Until then, Harrison and I have lent our minds and our voices to creating and starring in a seasonal audio sketch show for charity coming out 27th December.

This week a very sleepy Caleb has a bit of a meltdown as we try to rewrite the thematically ambitious French musical romance, Les Chansons d'Amour (Love Songs) directed by Christophe Honoré. We talk about stripping the plot and characters back to get to the core theme of the film and paying homage properly to cinematic influences.

This week we're joined by a very special guest, Rob Merriam, to talk about the Ben Stiller vehicle, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. We talk about making the most of this character, and the source material, as well as finding a clear message and baking it into the plot. Rob also pitches a very dark take on the film right at the very end of the show, so stick around for that.You can let us know what you think of the show, and ask us any questions, on Twitter and Instagram @dotrythispod.Rob is on Letterboxd @forkrugWe exist as separate entities here:Harrison is @harrisongalewho or @harrisonwho on Twitter and Instagram and Letterboxd.Caleb is @caleblester on Twitter and Instagram and Letterboxd.This is a Maybe You Like It Production.

In Time (2011)

In Time (2011)

The mid-budget sci-fi genre needs a Do Try This At Home style upgrade! We talk story structure and world building as we delve into Andrew Niccol's excellently-premised but poorly-executed 2011 dystopian sci-fi action film, In Time, which stars JustIN TIMEberlake himself.You can let us know what you think of the show, and ask us any questions, on Twitter and Instagram @dotrythispod.We exist as separate entities here:Harrison is @harrisongalewho or @harrisonwho on Twitter and InstagramCaleb is @caleblester on Twitter and InstagramThis is a Maybe You Like It Production.

Man of Steel (2013)

Man of Steel (2013)

2020-11-1601:50:27

This week, we take on the unwieldy task of rewriting Zack Snyder's blockbuster superhero film Man of Steel (2013). We talk about reasserting a message of hope into a Superman story, removing the American imperialist narrative of the military, and giving female characters agency, again.You can let us know what you think of the show, and ask us any questions, on Twitter and Instagram @dotrythispod.We exist as separate entities here:Harrison is @harrisongalewho or @harrisonwho on Twitter and InstagramCaleb is @caleblester on Twitter and InstagramThis is a Maybe You Like It Production.

Something Borrowed (2011)

Something Borrowed (2011)

2020-11-0901:38:16

This week we take on the truly uninspiring Rom-com Something Borrowed (2011), a film that left a big impression on 13-year-old Harrison but that Caleb can remember literally nothing about at this point. Also, Caleb keeps saying "sitcom" instead of "rom-com" and he's sorry about that. Anyway, take a listen as we attempt to wrangle something out of a nothing movie.

The Gentlemen (2019)

The Gentlemen (2019)

2020-11-0201:26:31

This week Harrison and Caleb take on Guy Ritchie's 2019 British gangster flick The Gentlemen. We managed to riff a real reimagining of what Ritchie offers in the original film and take the stories in a very new structural direction. Plus we rid the narrative of its sexism, racism, xenophobia, and anti-Semitism, so that's pretty good.Please rate and review us in app and follow us on social media @dotrythispod on twitter and instagram.Plus we exist separately at the places below:Caleb is @caleblebster on twitter, instagram and letterboxd.Harrison is @harrisonwho on instagram, @harrisongalewho on twitter, and Harrison Gale on letterboxd.This is a Maybe You Like It Production.

We're here with episode one and we're talking about Tarantino's eminently disappointing Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. We get into the myriad of missed opportunities in this snooze-fest that seems to be mostly made up of Brad Pitt driving about. We even manage to give Sharon Tate some agency, thereby giving Margot Robbie something to do.

New Year's Eve (2011)

A Kominsky New Year from Caleb and Harrison! As a very special treat, we decided to bring you a New Year's special to cap of the festive season and with the only film that we could possibly think of, Gary Marshall's New Year's Eve (2011). We'll level with you, it's a very bad film, so we get goofy with it and take it to a whole new realm: Kominsky's New Year's Eve! You'll have to listen to understand, we fear.We'll be back in the New Year to continue to fight the good fight and save mediocre cinema. If you have any thoughts about a season theme or particular films to cover then let us know on Twitter and Instagram @dotrythispod!Harrison and I have lent our minds and our voices to creating and starring in a seasonal audio sketch show for charity, out now.
