Black Ops Episode 21 – Hunter Biden and the Holy Grail [CLIP]

We’re back with a new Black Ops podcast, exclusive to our Patreon supporters! This month, we’re back with Kit DeForge to continue the conversation into the cinematic!

Movie theaters are back! And in a dystopian world ravaged by doomsday viruses, we have been inside of them! For the first time in almost two years, we are going into public buildings with giant screens, big sound systems and comfy chairs for the explicit purpose of watching movies. How does the return to cinemas change the movie-going experience after 18 months of exclusively streaming movies on our computers, phones and televisions?

We reaffirm the joy of going to the movies cold — avoiding even teaser trailers, if possible and just letting the movie reveal itself to you without any prior expectation of the story.

We (briefly) touch on movies we’ve recently seen for the first time like Pig, The Green Knight, The Night House, The Suicide Squad, Personal Shopper, Paper Tigers, and Deep Blue Sea.

To unlock this episode in its entirety — and many episodes more! — just support us on Patreon with at least one measly dollar a month!

Fun Size Episode 58 – A Human Soup of Band-Aids and Pee

We continue our chat with Michael Warbington, as we look at the trajectory of big-budget franchises and the knee-jerk fan anger that Martin Scorsese’s criticisms of “theme park” movies vs. “cinema”….and maybe he has a good point?

And maybe we should really stop complaining about the apparent theatrical monopoly of blockbusters and start championing smaller independent films, like The Paper Tigers instead.

And finally, has toxic fandom finally drifted into a form of self-harm for some people, as one Disney fan on social media starts drinking water out of Walt Disney World’s public fountains and rating its taste?
