Space Sweepers

We’re back to the good movies! The next couple are all actually all good. I thoroughly enjoyed this, right down to the improbable slightly fairytale ending, although if you think about it, Dorothy was looking out for her own interests too because if her dad was dead, who else would take care of her? Moving…More

What Lies Below

First of all, if you want to try to make any sense of this movie, read this article first. Just… trust me. Don’t even worry about spoilers, because nothing will be spoiled. Nothing in that article is actually in the movie. Well, except for her smiling at the end, which I did not realize was…More

Mama Mia! Here We Go Again

I’m sorry for the delay on this! Everything changing at work with the lifting of all restrictions and no notice so we could prepare properly kind of threw a wrench in the works for my week. Remember when I said I would get around to a bad movie eventually? Here you go! We recorded it…More

Bull Durham

Even though I was born in Atlanta and spent a lot of time there, I consider Durham to be equally my home. Despite all of the gentrification and increased cost of living, I love it here. I also love the Durham Bulls, and going to the games, even if I can only make it to…More

El Mariachi

For Cinco de Mayo, I start with a little history lesson about the origins of the holiday, which actually have nothing to do with Mexico’s Independence Day (and came along about 50 years later), and then I thought, “why not choose a movie that actually kind of personifies what Cinco de Mayo is all about?”…More

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 2

AKA, How Alicia Learned to Fast Forward Using an Apple TV Remote. I am so happy that this is the last one! It starts with the kitten sneezing, which I thought was adorable, so I kept it in. Plus that may be the only redeeming quality about this whole thing. This recording is definitely lackluster.…More

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Welcome to another episode in which we watch a movie and talk about it, but in reality the cats take center stage. As I said before, we recorded these in January, and Mr. Peppers was still a very new kitten, as opposed to the adolescent who is taller than Sunny and bigger than Lucy now.…More

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Ugghhhhh… they’re almost over. You can tell how invested I was (hint: I was not) by how much of my focus is on the bad hair and Bella’s clothes. Still can’t stand Bella, and still don’t understand why Team Edward is a thing. I feel that people who look at Edward as the model of…More

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter

Happy post Easter! This one came from my friend Andi (although I had been sitting on it for a minute waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it in the podcast). We both felt that Easter was that opportunity. One of the things I love about this movie is that it chooses to focus on…More

Batman: The Movie

I had to rent this to watch it with Erin, and I’m not gonna lie, I’m probably going to buy it. I haven’t watched the original Batman series in years. I forgot how good it is with the tongue-in-cheek dry humor, puns, special effects, and villains. It’s the way I always loved Batman both as…More
