The Handmaid's Tale/Favorite Scores
This episode is in two parts. The opening is all about Hulu's original series The Handmaid's Tale and the main topic is about us talking about our favorite film scores.
The Handmaid's Tale tells a chilling story of what a fascist regime would look like in our own backyard. Women's rights don't exist and fertility is something rare in the world. We discuss story structure and how episode one might betray your interest but episode two plants the seeds of revolution.
After that, we move onto happier things like music in film. We focus on composed music and the people who compose it. What are some of your favorite film scores?
Fargo Season 3 Premiere and Our Thoughts on the Show
Fargo was an amazing film made by the Coen Brothers in the 90s and nobody really could have guess that a TV show based off of the same themes could perchance surpass the original, but here we are. Fargo the FX network original is a show filled with murder, betrayal, detective work, mob bosses, heists, hitman, and the "Minnesota Nice" mentality. Season 3 premiered with Ewan McGregor in the lead playing twins and in this podcast we discuss our thoughts on seasons 1 through 3.
We start the show with a frank discussion of the ridiculousness of the Netflix documentary "Casting JonBenet".
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?
