Episode #289 – “Rocketman”

Rocketman

Last year we got the story of Freddie Mercury (to mixed results) and now we’re getting the story of another hugely popular musician, Elton John! And just like “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Rocketman” delves into the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll of being a superstar. But does “Rocketman” go even further? Is it a better look at the main subject? Does it keep it’s focus where “Bohemian” pulled away? Well, let’s just say the “R” rating is put to good use…at least a bit. But does that make it a good movie? Tune in to find out!

Episode #288 – “Always Be My Maybe” & “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”

Always be my Godzilla

This week we’re reviewing two movies that couldn’t be more different! A Netflix rom-com and a giant monster movie. But maybe “Always Be My Maybe” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” are SO different that they actually make the perfect double-feature? No, no don’t do that. It doesn’t work. Anyway, tune in as we discuss the best damn cameo in movie history and why Sally Hawkins wanted out of the “Godzilla” franchise so damn badly. We love you Keanu Reeves!

Episode #287 – “Aladdin”

Aladdin

“Aladdin” is one of THE classic Disney movies, so it only makes sense for the Mouse House to want to remake it as a live-action film, as they have done with a bunch of other classics now. But what started off as an obvious idea quickly turned into an Internet laughing stock as pictures and then trailers of the film slowly came out. “What’s with the set design?” “Who cast Jafar?” Oh and let’s not forget, “OMG WILL SMITH IS A BLUEBERRY!” So how does “Aladdin” fare after all that negative lead up? Well, you may be surprised. Tune in for our full review!

Episode #285 – “Pokemon Detective Pikachu”
