We’re back to dive into an overstuffed grab bag of off-topic nonsense with Roz Townsend, and we grapple with the important questions that keep us up at night.
Is Colonel Sanders the closest thing we have to an American Time Lord? What are our favorite fictional restaurants? Are self-published fan zines a lost art? Are skunks a form of Pokémon? Did Freddie Mercury go super saiyan in the ’80s? Are modern video game mechanics inaccessible to people who didn’t grow up with them?
Plus, Casey becomes annoyed at a group of small children not being as entranced by My Neighbor Totoro as he is, and we all betray our socialist leanings.
We’re back in the studio for a continued conversations with our friend Kit Laika, to dig into why Dwayne Johnson may be the most likeable human being in the world.
And then we tempt fate by taking a critical look at the first DC superhero movie to get universal critical acclaim in nearly a decade!
Kit has an unpopular opinion about the new Wonder Woman film. What are the reasonable expectations we can have for a blockbuster superhero film? We talk about how we can unfairly pile our hopes and dreams onto a piece of entertainment, and how it can often be difficult to be honest about something that we really, really want to love.
From the creatures’ roots in the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger classic to their battles with everyone from Danny Glover, Adrien Brody, and even the Alien xenomorphs, we dig into all aspects of franchise.
Are the Predators really the galaxy’s greatest warriors, or just a bunch of rich assholes with expensive hunting gear? Do the sequels hold a candle to the original? Are the Alien vs. Predator crossover film worth watching?
