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”

Pokemon Detective Pikachu

Ryan Reynolds IS Pikachu! I can only assume that’s how the pitch meeting went for this movie. Well, lucky for us, some Warner Brothers executive decided to take a chance on that and give us the damn cutest electric rat we’ve ever seen! But Pikachu being adorable aside, is the movie actually good? Does “Pokemon Detective Pikachu” break the video game movie curse? Tune in to find out!

Episode #281 – “Us”

Us

Jordan Peele’s second directorial effort has been eagerly anticipated, to say the least. After his Oscar-winning “Get Out” made history, how would he follow it up?? We have the answer and it is “Us”…a more horror-focused tale of a family being stalked by their doppelgängers. But is it as (relatively) simple as that? Or is there something larger at play? Considering Peele is the mind behind the new “Twilight Zone” series, it’s safe to assume the latter! Tune in for our full review!
