Giving movies and TV a second chance
Why should you ever go back to a movie after you watched it and hated it? Why should you ever go back to a TV show after it burned you? We ask ourselves these questions and sometimes the answer is a just a plain and simple "maybe it will be better this time?"
The Girl and Tristan talk about the movies and TV shows that they went back to and liked a second time around. They also discuss movies that they gave another shot and it was still a swing and a miss.
They start the show reviewing Mass Effect Andromeda.
The Last Jedi Trailer and A.I. in Cinema
In this episode, Tristan and The Girl start off the conversation with The Last Jedi trailer. The new Star Wars teaser trailer dropped on the day of recording and the Internet was all aflutter with the possibilities for new content from that galaxy far far away. Did it satisfy all those nerd needs or was it found wanting?
They then transition into a discussion that was meant to be AI in movies but then went to a more fundamental discussion of would you want AI in your house.
What do you guys think? Would you want an AI in your daily life?
Review of HBO's Big Little Lies and Netflix's The Discovery
This episode is hot off the press! Moments after the airing of HBO's Big Little Lies series finale, this Nerd Nuptial turned on the mic and started talking about it. Seven episodes in total and no time felt wasted. The entire show was teasing a murder but everyone was guessing at to who was murdered and who did the murdering. HBO brought some heavy hitters like Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Laura Dern to the mix and the performances did not disappoint. But was the ending all it was cracked up to be?
We start the show with our review of the gloomy Netflix original movie about suicide and the afterlife, The Discovery.
The best fictional locales that you would want to visit
Whatever your fandom is, you would probably want to go to one of the many locations in it. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Dune...well maybe not Dune. Immediately, as you're reading this, you're thinking of some right now.
The Girl and Tristan talk about a long list of places they would like to visit (some more absurd than others). Why they make the list they start to realized that it's more the people you would interact with and not so much the location itself. What would the forest moon of Endor be without the Ewoks? Just forest.
They start the show talking about the new Justice League trailer and watching Rogue One again.
Our Favorite Romantic Pairings on Film
What makes a great couple on film? Is it relatability? Believability? Or just an entertaining story? We have countless stories in movies of people who meet at the beginning and then take the entire story to get together. Other times they start together and struggle for one reason or another. But why do we keep coming back for more? Why do we invest so much of our own emotions is these fictional people we only experience for two hours at a time?
The Girl and Tristan look back at some of their favorite romantic pairings on film and try to figure out why they mean so much to them. They start the show with a listener suggestion of explaining how their wedding was nerdy.
