Episode #276 – “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part”

LEGO Movie 2

Everything was awesome! That’s how we would describe the first “LEGO Movie”, for sure. It was a fun, creative, and strangely emotional take on a corporate-branded film. So Warner Bros. did the obvious thing and released two more films in the franchise, “The LEGO Batman Movie” and “Ninjago”, to limited fanfare. But now the bricks are back for a full-fledged sequel with “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part”! Is everything STILL awesome? Or did the studio build something a little less stable? Tune in to find out!

I can’t believe we’re saying this, but it’s time for another M. Night Shyamalan movie!

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!

Or is it more of the author’s revisionist history that’s so popular on her Twitter feed? Tune in as we dissect the latest movie from Harry Potter workman David Yates!
