This week we’re talking about another one of our favorites from the past year, Robert Egger’s The Northman. We discuss the cold, unflinching style, the mythological and legend-like qualities, and how our experience watching this relates to the Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year.
Also, why we hate eating soup with chopsticks. (Recorded January 22nd, 2023.)

Today we’re talking about the greatest whodunit of yesteryear, Netflix’s Glass Onion. We discuss our thoughts on this movie in relation to the first, the extravagant and excellent vacation island aesthetic, and also get confused at the sheer number of actors named Hugh.
Also, why we hate the subtitle for this film. (Recorded January 15th, 2023.)

This week we’re making some bold claims about the calendar year, and looking back on all the predictions we made for last year. Join us as we discuss and reflect on house prices, game awards, box office numbers, beloved animated revivals, celebrity death (that we DON'T WANT TO HAPPEN), and much more.
Also, why we hate time sensitive sign-ups. (Recorded January 8th, 2023.)

After taking a couple weeks off for the holidays, we’re back with what might very well be our longest episode to date with Avatar: The Way of Water. There’s so much to unpack as we discuss the breathtaking visual splendor, the still somewhat-hackneyed writing, the emotionally powerful third act, and try to figure out where this franchise is going to go from here.
Also, why we hate breaking your hand bowling. (Recorded January 1st, 2023.)
