We recorded this after Thanksgiving and not only are we full of stuffing but we are full of movie news. So this week we talked about what was happening in Hollywood. Including why the internet lost its mind over Clifford, movies to stream in November, and why Netflix could be the first streamer to win the Best Picture Oscar. We also shared our thoughts on The Happiest Season as well as some of our favorite comfort movies we've seen 100 times.
Yes. The Pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna are leading the race to provide a vaccine to the world. Both companies announced that its vaccines are over 94.5% effective in preventing the coronavirus. How did we get two potential vaccines so effective and safe in such a quick amount of time? As we say in Philadelphia - trust the scientific process. This week we discuss that process and the technology that got us to this point and why the vaccine can and should be trusted. We also share our thoughts on the Hulu movie Run, the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special, Fisherman's Friends, and the finale of The Sopranos.
Winter is coming and November is on track to be the worst month of the pandemic in the US, so far. The country just surpassed 11 million cases – less than a week after hitting 10 million. So what should you do with Thanksgiving right around the corner? This week we brought back our favorite respiratory therapist to talk about what to do this holiday season and if it is possible to celebrate safely as the Coronavirus flares up around the country. We also share our thoughts on Mile 22 and The Impossible, both currently streaming on Netflix.
Donald Trump has been defeated, Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States, and Kamala Harris will be the next Vice President the first woman, the first black woman, the first Asian-American woman, and the first multiracial American to hold the office. And part of the reason that happened is because of the city of Philadelphia. So what happened this past week, is it all good news, and where does the country go from here. We talk about all of that as well as share our thoughts on Black Christmas, Life Is Beautiful, and some other horror movies to watch.
Usually, this podcast comes out on Tuesday and we talk about what is happening in the news. But is anything we talk about on Tuesday morning going to be bigger than the news happening on Tuesday night. With that in mind if you need something to take your mind off the election or you are just too nervous to watch as the results come - this week we each picked five movies each to watch instead of election coverage. We hope this helps!!
Hosts: Zach Stone and Ryan Berger
