Episode #271 – “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding”

It’s that time of year when people forget what a good movie looks like and mindlessly watch the Hallmark Channel’s original, feel-good films. It’s been that way for years which means it’s just about time for Netflix to get in the game. This week, we talk about the sequel to last year’s “A Christmas Prince”, a surprise hit (?) for the streaming service. So just how bad is this year’s “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding”? Oh boy, tune in to find out!

Episode #270 – “Creed II”

Creed IIAre we in the Rocky Cinematic Universe? It sure seems like it with the release of “Creed II”! In what must be the most obvious yet “on-the-DL” idea for a movie franchise, the sequel to 2015’s “Creed” is basically giving us a sequel to the much-loved “Rocky IV”. We have Ivan Drago and his son, coming to America for some revenge in the ring! But is it really Adonis Creed’s fight? Are we about to see Apollo vs Drago all over again?? Tune in to hear our thoughts!

Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling teaming up for a movie about the moon landing? How can that NOT be good?

This week we’re tackling one of the most anticipated films of the year!
