We’ll Review it, Our Shelves

We review the movies… On our shelves.

Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan Earp have arrived in Tombstone, so what do we do? Talk about accents and the romantic notions of the Old West in America.
We throw off the rose-colored glasses and look at the dirtier side of history. Do we romanticize the American West? Was it as great as some seem to think?  Or was it harsh and difficult?
We answer all these questions and more as we talk about 1993' Tombstone.

Dan watched a musical!!! Dan watched a musical!!! and there was much rejoicing, yay!

Brian watched a musical, not a surprise!  It's Rock of Ages, with Tom Cruise on vocals, Julianne Hough singing and, um, dancing?  She's definitely dancing, maybe not the way you think.

It's a cavalcade of songs fromthe eighties and right in Brian's (and Dan's) formative teen-age years.  The songs you know by heart sung by some people you didn't think of singing them :)  

Once you get done singing along, or before because those earworms will stay in there forever,

Bum, Bum-Bum, BUH-BUM, Bum, bum BUM!!!!!!!  

WARNING: THERE ARE SPOILERS TALKED ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE!!!!!

Dan and I are both tremendous fans of the Marvel MCU series of movies and this weekend, in what is billed as a culmination of 10 years and 18 films, Avengers: Infinity War opened in theaters around the globe. 

We deviate from the "Is this on your shelf?" question and ask, "Will this be on your shelf?" 

Why? Because we love the franchise and this is a monumental moment in movie history. One of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken deserved an episode of our little podcast. (At least we thought so).

On a cool note, we also get some audience reaction immediately following the movie.

If you are still with us at the end of the episode and the end of the movie, please leave us heroic feedback on our Facebook page.

Ep 26 Se7en

One of the themes of Se7en is patience, and we appreciate yours. Real life got in the way of what should have been a live episode.  
Happily, seven days later (and yes, this episode will be release at 7:07 on the SEVENteeth) we were able to release this episode.
It could have been so much longer and we wander a bit, but we hope you enjoy it.

Hail Caeser! Leader of the free monkeys, er um uh, APES.  To our simian listeners, my apologies. To our human listeners, it was a joke. :)  

We ramble on about 2017's War for the Planet of the Apes, and, sadly, not Battle for the Planet of the Apes. The third movie in the most recent reboot trilogy of the original Planet of the Apes movies. (Still good, after all these years)

English accent or not, Kevin Costner's stunt butt steals the show, or does it?  Entry 4,945 in the legend of Robin Hood and his, um, merry men, gives us slightly different take on Desert Storm/Desert Sheild (Which also happened in 1991.
We have a couple of laughs at Will Scarlett and his sadness and a few laughs at Alan Rickman's madness.  (Poet in Sherwood)
We marvel at medical technology and Boss Nass from The Phantom Menace. Yes, we go there and it's pertinent.

The episode covers a wide range of topics, wandering away from the movie, but bringing it back on point pretty quickly. (Not really, but it sounds good doesn't it?)

We take a break from our usual Random Magic Move Button and have a chat about movies we didn't know were books first, a couple of books that we knew were made into movies, and a few we'd like to see made into movies.

We have a few laughs and dip our toes into other things we might actually have on our shelves, like books.

Did you ever feel the need to drive through Alabama on your way to UCLA?  I mean that's ok if you're starting from Georgia, but when you start from New York?  It doesn't usually end up well. Luckily, the Karate Kid has a lawyer in the family.  That's right, it's My Cousin Vinny!
We ask the hard questions, we (almost) beg for feedback, and we just generally have a good time talking about this movie.

What's that you say? You say you were just cleared of murder charges by your fast talking lawyer cousin? Then leave us some feedback on our Facebok page

Finally!!! A new episode.  We go a little ways down the rabbit hole to see what we can see. We cover some listener feedback, we chase White Rabbits, we draw strange conclusions about what this movie means and where it fits in the pantheon of Disney animation.

We ask our listeners, "What is your favorite ride at Disney theme parks?" and we find out if Alice in Wonderland will be relegated to General Population, or some other place of honor amongst Dan's vast collection.

Ep 20 Mimic

In 1997 somebody thought it would be a good idea to make a movie about twelve foot long bugs. What a great idea. In 2017 the magic random movie button decided we should talk about it.  So, we did.  

Dan likes horror movies and this certainly qualifies, but will it escape General Population? You'll have to tune in, or download and listen, to find out.

We make poop jokes. (Not the first time, probably won't be the last) If you're wondering the tone is 440 Hz and 18 dB. S-brrrrrrr-t, so no explicit tag, but whew it was close.

 

If there are no large colonies of giant, man-eating, genetically-engineered bugs chasing you, leave us some feedback on our Facebok page
