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?
Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 episodes "Brother" and "New Eden"
This season of Star Trek: Discovery opened with a bang and it did not disappoint. There was a lot to love about season one but sadly there was a lot to bring you down. They needed that time to find their footing and if these first to episodes are any indication then they have.
Listen to hear a Trek fan's perspective as well as a non-Trek fan's perspective. What did you guys think?
Watching the Top Ten episodes of Black Mirror on Netflix
If you search "Top Ten episodes of Black Mirror" on Google, you get tons and tons of opinions but just from one person. On IMDb, they have an aggregated list of the top-rated episodes. This week Tristan and The Girl tried to watch all of them and this episode is them giving you their opinions on each one. Some were story based, others were concept based. They only get spoilery towards the very very end.
Listen and let us know which one is your favorite!
