Isle of Dogs, Lost in Space, and The Greatest Showman Review
We had the grand opportunity of finally being able to see Wes Anderson's "Isle of Dogs" now that it is in wide release. There were a lot of disappointed kids in the theater who thought they were going to see a happy go lucky minion-esque comedy. To be honest, that made it even funnier. No subterfuge, this was a great and beautiful film. Listen to our thoughts and to why we thought this was one of the director's better outings.
We open the show with our review of Netflix's "Lost in Space" reboot and "The Greatest Showman" on home release.
What would it be like to be famous, married, and working together? A la Blunt/Krasinski
The Girl and Tristan often think about what it would be like to work together on a huge project like a movie. When seeing the advertisements for "A Quiet Place", they got a little jealous of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski being able to work together in a creative way. In this episode, they discuss the projects they've worked on together in the past and what it must be like to be married and working. They also talk about what segment of their lives would make of for a great film like "The Big Sick".
They open the show with an announcement about the network's current legal situation as well as a GoFundMe to help with it.
We talk season 2 of Westworld, Santa Clarita Diet, and Lemony Snicket's
Last week we took some time off in order to finish watching Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 but in that time we were able to watch a few other things. Westworld Season 2 trailer came out, Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events season 2 dropped. That's why we labeled the podcast episode the way we did. Listen to hear our thoughts on all these programs and a whole lot more.
We start the episode with a story of how Tristan stapled his hand to a set.
Review of the 2018 film 'Tomb Raider'
Lara Croft has been with us in one form or another since 1996. Some of us have grown up on her video games, comics, novels, and sometimes awkward action figures. With 17 console games in the bank with another one on the way, we've had two Angelina Jolie movies and now one Alicia Vikander film.
The film currently sits at a 49% on Rotten Tomatoes and is not having the strongest of openings. The critics seem to be split down the middle and it's safe to say that this was not the rejuvenation of the franchise that Warner Bros. was hoping for.
Your favorite Nerd Nuptial saw the film over opening weekend and are thankful that they had some free passes.
What constitutes 'hardcore' science fiction and why is it needed?
There is great science fiction out the from Metropolis to Blade Runner 2049. But what makes a science fiction film hardcore science fiction? One could argue that the science is more of the cornerstone of the story or that it's more deeply rooted in 'realistic' science.
Besides just hardcore sci-fi, we also talk our favorite science fiction films in general and why we're drawn to the genre. We also catch everyone up on what we've been watching.
