It's the week between Christmas and New Years where time ceases to exist. So this week Zach was once again joined by the official wife of the pod to not only discuss The Prom and Normal People but to talk about what has been going on in their life and share a big life announcement.
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.
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!!
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Supreme Court justice and progressive icon died last week at the age of 87. This week we talk about her life, legacy, and the fight happening in Washington to fill her seat on the Supreme Court before the November election. We also talk about the RBG documentary on Hulu as well as The Vow on HBO and The Devil All The Time which is available on Netflix.
Will You Go See Tenet
Movie theaters have reopened in 44 states. Despite the fact just last week there were 300,000 new cases of COVID and 5,900 deaths. With movies like Tenet, Bill and Ted, and The New Mutants coming out, theater chains are hoping people will come back in order to save the industry. This week we talk about the decision process to reopen, our feelings on headed back to the movies, and we try to understand who will go. We also share our thoughts on Netflix's new movie Work It and Peanut Butter Falcon which is streaming on Hulu.
An armed gunman released 13 hostages after the President of Ukraine agreed to recommend a movie starring Joaquin Phoenix. We talk about how all of this went down and what Joaquin Phoenix movie saved those people's lives. We also share this week's movie suggestions including the Elisabeth Moss movie Shirley on Hulu and the Rosamund Pike movie Radioactive on Amazon Prime.
The Trump Administration intends for schools to open for in-person classes this fall. And if schools decide not to open the President is threatening to withhold federal funding. So what is the plan to do so? We talk about how schools and colleges are planning to open up in the fall and if there is a way to do it safely. We also share our thoughts on Andy Samberg new movie Palm Springs and the Sci-fi movie Vast of Night.
It's our annual Superbowl episode. And we have... well it's certainly a football game. The Patriots are playing the Rams and it feels like the buzz around the game is small. Maybe that's because all the excitement got sucked out during the NFC Championship game. This week Ryan and Zach talk about all the games involved and share their thoughts on the Oscar nominations, the Netflix movie Roma and both Fyre Festival documentaries that are out now.
Hosts: Zach Stone and Ryan Berger
