Love, Death + Robots, Arrested Development, and Triple Frontier
This was a great weekend for Netflix releases. It felt like it was almost geared specifically for us. David Fincher produced an anthology series based mostly on animation all centered around love, death, and you guessed it, robots. Arrested Development limps to a finish with season 5 part 2 and Triple Frontier was an extremely surprising breath of fresh air.
Listen to hear our thoughts on all three and we absolutely want to hear yours!
Captain Marvel Review
In spite of the fanboy neckbeards trying to "review bomb" a film for having an outspoken female lead, Captain Marvel seems to be connecting and finding its audience. We had our reservations on seeing it in the theater because the trailers seemed uninteresting. However, we got to see it opening night and had a great theatrical experience.
Listen to our spoiler-free review and more importantly, listen to The Girl talk about how representation matters for her and our little girl.
Oscar Reactions and the Spielberg/Netflix Fight
Last week we weren't able to record and discuss our Oscar reactions so we're making up for it this week. We also discuss Steven Spielberg's decision to try and implement rules that would disqualify streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, from competing for Academy Awards in their current forms.
Is this a symptom of an old man yelling at clouds or does he have a point in trying to protect the theater-going experience?
The Oscars are a week away and we have something to say about it
So many people have given up on the Oscars, let me rephrase, so many people have said they have given up on the Oscars but you know they still check. Even if you don't watch, you check the next day or keep track on Twitter. So that's what we're talking about this week. When did we get into the Oscars, when did we stop watching, and what do we think of this year's Best Picture nominees.
The many different cinematic versions of Spider-Man
A lot of people have complained that we have just too many versions of Spider-Man on film. Too many dead Uncle Bens and too many "great power" speeches. But we keep going back to the theater for more. So what is the appeal of a cinematic Spidey? Has it only gotten better or worse?
In this week's episode, we discuss every iteration of Spider-Man on film and its merits. What's your favorite version?
