Review of Netflix's Latest Film Okja
We finally got some viewing time this week and we decided to go deep into the Netflix catalog. We watched Moana, tried Glow, and gave Bojack Horseman another try. But the main thing we are talking about this week is Bong Joon-ho's "Okja".
A film about a CGI Super Pig is one that tugs at the heartstrings even if it doesn't sound like it would. A commentary on the meatpacking industry as well as our tendency to develop relationships with non-humans. Listen to our review for our response to the film and we don't get to spoiler territory until later in the episode.
We start the episode with our reaction to catching up to Veep on HBO.
Movies you weren't allowed to watch growing up.
This is a truly universal experience that all of us have gone through. Your friends have rented a movie or are on their way to go see something and you rush to your parents to them and they say one of the worst single syllable words in the English language, "no." You're heartbroken. You're downtrodden. What do you do? Do you watch it? Do you respect your parent's wishes? Or do you just lie your way through the conversation and tell your friends, "Oh, I've totally seen that and it was awesome."
This Nerd Nuptial has plenty of stories to tell when it comes to movies and TV they weren't allowed to watch.

Review of DC's latest film: Wonder Woman
One of the highest rated superhero films of all time is Wonder Woman. The savior of the DCEU is here and she has come in full force. Regardless of what you thought of Man of Steel or Batman v. Superman, they were not well received. So far, Wonder Woman is by a landslide.
The toughest female superhero was directed by a female as well and a lot was unjustly riding on this. When a man makes a bad superhero film, it doesn't stop them from making another. If this would have tanked, people would have pointed fingers at the gender in front of and behind the camera. Thankfully, no one has to worry about that.
Listen to our very honest review of this enjoyable film that does have some issues here and there.
