In the first of a several part series, we call on the pod's subject matter expert for all things Harry Potter, Becca Steinhoff, to help us review Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. We discuss the film itself, how the entire series compares to other epic fantasy ones like it, and Becca and Mike have a heated exchange over who made the better Dumbledore: Harris or Gambon. After re-listening to the episode and Becca's passionate analysis, we're still not sure if she knows it isn't real. This one is a must-listen for any Harry Potter nerds out there.
In its opening weekend Ocean's 8 had a decent run at the box office but a tough time with the critics. So what'd we think of it? That's what we cover in our latest episode. Plus we get into a little trailer talk to discuss Jennifer Garner's foray into the Taken ripoff genre, a movie called Peppermint. Mike also dubs a new term to describe his knowledge of all things Christopher Nolan: "Nol-edge."
This episode is a two-parter-in-one as we review Solo: A Star Wars Story. To lead off Mike is joined by his buddy, comedian and Star Wars fanatic Pete Bladel (http://petebladel.com) to talk about Solo and go in-depth on the Star Wars cinematic universe. Then for part two of the episode (starting at 32:54), Mike talks about his second viewing of the movie with Elizabeth, his regular co-pilot on the pod. Same movie with different perspectives.
If you're here for an in-depth review of Deadpool 2, you're out of luck. This quick episode discusses the film briefly, but delves much deeper why someone would Snapchat scenes from a movie WHILE WATCHING THE MOVIE. That's right, someone in the theater we watched Deadpool 2 at recorded large chunks of it on their phone to post for other people to watch online. Why the hell would anyone do that? Find out our best guesses in this episode!
In our latest episode we review Book Club. We talk about Hollywood's penchant for treating all actors the same once they pass 60, Andy Garcia's magical blazer and jeans combo, and why a billionaire would be a commercial airline pilot. It will all make sense once you listen to the episode.
It's not often a movie makes one of us visibly angry during its final act, but Life of the Party sure did. Want to find out which one of it was? Smash that download button!
In our latest episode we review Life of the Party. There's also a little trailer talk, plus we review a really weird space commercial we saw before the previews.

In celebration of Mother's Day weekend, we honored our Moms the best way we knew how: seeing a movie about a mom fighting a non-threatening band of bad guys who kidnapped her kids. In this episode we review Breaking In. There's also some Trailer Talk (TM) and we discuss a post-movie fight that nearly broke out at the theater we went to.
In our latest episode we review the Charlize Theron dramedy Tully. We start things off with a little role reversal: Elizabeth does the opening intro while Mike observes silently. Then we discuss some heavy spoilers and talk about the film's twist. We won't say who, but one of us absolutely hated the movie. The other one didn't like it either, but the hatred wasn't as intense.
