Episode 82 - Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol/Mission: Impossible

December 20th, 2011 · Comments

TOM CRUISE POWER! Since Krissy (of course) had never seen a Mission: Impossible movie beforehand, this week we watched the 1996 original in preparation for an IMAX screening of the brand new Mission 4! This one involved GHOSTS! Or did it? Which one wowed us more? And what did we think of the extended trailer that ran before the movie for The Dark Knight Rises? You should listen! Because, well, we talk about all of that...stuff! We also discuss exploding chewing gum and French aquarium restaurants, Cruise's running skills, climbing up buildings with sticky gloves in Dubai, EMILIO ESTEVEZ!!!, Paula Patton's blazing hotness, Jeremy Renner's Bourne-ness, Charlie Brown teacher villains and much much more! And it's all relatively PG! This podcast episode will self-destruct in 3 seconds...

Episode 81 - Young Adult/The Descendants

December 14th, 2011 · Comments

Christmas came early this year, folks - in the form of awards screeners! So many screeners, so little time... How will J and K ever watch them all? This week your favorite Movie Geek couple gets all nostalgic with movies that vaguely remind them of their own lives: Young Adult and The Descendants. Cause, you know, we totally have some rich, royal ancestors that left us with acres and acres of virgin Hawaiian land. Just thinking about it gives us Kushlash. That or a hangover. We can't really remember how much we drank last night with our friend Patton Oswalt. Oh well! Also, Charlize Theron and George Clooney! Wowzers. But please listen to this week's podcast. It's a roller coaster ride filled with amazingly wonderful wrong turns down KenTacoHut lane. And it's rated PG! So there.

Episode 80 - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull/A.I. Artificial Intelligence

December 6th, 2011 · Comments

SPIELBERG DOUBLE FEATURE, y'all! Yes, we're catching senioritis in terms of the holidays, we missed a early screening of War Horse and we decided to rectify that by exposing Krissy to a two-fer of The Steve's output from the Aughts: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) and A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)! One Krissy almost fell asleep during (big surprise!) and the other's viewing was Justin's only 2nd time seeing it since the 1st time being one of the saddest movie-going experiences of his life. Ain't that a bucketful of smiles? You know what didn't make either of us smile in these 2 movies? The endings! WHAT IN THE WORLD??!?!?!? Am I right or am I right? We also discuss CGI that makes us want to die, LeBarf, Cate Blanchett's accent, the most indestructible fridge in history, not-hispanic quadruple crossers, Haley Joel Awesome?, kickass robotic bears ("It will break!"), Kubrickberg, douchey bros and much more! We might have even kept things PG! Just maybe.
