Tristan and The Girl pick their top-ten lists for 2018
This has been a great year for cinema as well as a great year for genre films. Tristan and The Girl crammed as many 2018 films in as possible in the homestretch. Last year they watched a total of 21 2017 films and this year they upped that number up to 39. They tried to balance enjoyment with technical achievement but which ones won the top spots? Listen and find out.
After you listen, check out their complete lists.
The Girl's List
We answer your questions on the air for the third time!
We've done this type of episode two times before and it gets more and more fun whenever we do it. Listeners sent in questions via Twitter, email, and Facebook. We didn't have time to answer all of them but we tried to get a wide array.
In this episode, we discuss the best of 2018, Ripley's first movie, and what movie watching habits get on each other's nerves.
Missing Frames: Nerd Nuptial Edition - Boogie Nights
We're stealing the Missing Frames format made famous by THE Shawn Eastridge. The Girl has never seen the modern classic Boogie Nights. So in the episode, we discuss what she knows of the movie, what she expects to see and then we pause the show, watch the film, and the talk about our thoughts. Boogie Nights deals with the world of pornography in the 70s so adult themes are discussed.
Make sure to head on over to thenerdparty.com/missingframes and give Shawn a listen.
Can you watch too much of a good thing?
We started the show thinking that we were going to talk about how you can fall into a rut watching the same old Christmas movies over and over but we ended up in a different place.
We reviewed what we've been watching lately and ended on First Reformed staring Ethan Hawked. As we looked at our film diary of 2018 we realized that not a lot of new material was there and that a lot of rewatches happened. What are we missing out on? What stories are not being heard? Could we be missing our new favorite movie because we're too scared or disinterested in going outside our comfort zone?
Listen to hear our thoughts on the matter and to challenge your own entertainment rut.
