Award season is back! Last week the Hollywood Foreign Press came out with their nominations for the Golden Globes and there was a collective scream from the internet upon seeing who they chose to celebrate and who they chose to leave out. This week we break down the snubs and surprises to come out of the Golden Globe nominations. We also share our thoughts on In and Of Itself, Malcolm and Marie, Ted Lasso, and Palmer.
The big game is set for Sunday as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To help break down the matchup this week we brought on a Kansas City fan and a New England fan (because let's face it Tampa doesn't have any real fans and all of New England seems to be pulling for Tom). We also share our thoughts on The Little Things, One Night in Miami, and The Night Stalker.
Welcome, folks, to the Biden Administration. Last week President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris took their oaths of office. And with no balls or parties to attend, his staff got right to work signing new executive orders, firing old staff, and redecorating the Oval Office. This week we talk about what stood out from the week and where the country goes from here. We also share our thoughts on the two-part Tiger documentary on HBO MAX as well as NBC's new show, Mr. Mayor.
Three years after winning the Super Bowl the Philadelphia Eagles have fired their head coach, have no offensive coordinator, no defensive coordinator, aging stars, cap issues, and an issue at quarterback after Carson Wentz got benched. Probably not where fans thought the team would be. So where does the team go from here? This week three fans talk about why the Eagles were so bad this year and if the team can be fixed or if it's time for a rebuild. We also share our thoughts on the first two episodes of 'WandaVision' on Disney+ and the first season of 'I May Destroy You' on HBO.
Last week the United States was attacked by a mob goaded on by Donald Trump. Walls were scaled, windows were broken, and the Capitol was taken for the first time since the War of 1812. How does the country move on from this moment? This week they talk about all the signs leading up to the event and what (if anything) can and should be done about this dark stain on the country's history.
They also share our thoughts on Pixar's new movie Soul and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
2020 has finally ended (Thank God) and there is a lot to look forward to in the coming year. This week Ryan, Zach, and Dave talk about some of the movies they are looking forward to seeing in the new year. They also share their thoughts on Wonder Woman 1984.
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.
And Other Marvel News
Alfred Molina is putting the metal arms back on to reprise his fan-favorite performance in Spider-Man 2 as Otto Octavius AKA Doctor Octopus. This coupled with news that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will be making appearances in the newest Spider-Man movie was just some of the Marvel news we got this past week. We talk about as much as we can that will be appearing on the big screen and the small screen. We also share our thoughts on Big Mouth Season 4, The Sound of Metal, and a binge-worthy MTV classic.
Warner Brothers announced it will release all of its 2021 movies on HBO Max, at the same time they debut in theaters. And if you have HBO Max it's not going to cost you anything extra. This is big news for the average movie watcher and movie theaters alike. Then we talk about the next big Oscar contender to come out from David Fincher as well as what movies could look like with the popularity of miniseries, especially Queen's Gambit. Finally, we talk about the monoliths that are appearing all over the world that have some people calling alien.
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.
