Ep 22 – Gotta Get To Wendy’s

10-28-18We are back this week with just a few things to talk about… but hang on for our picks of scary movies for the upcoming Halloween holiday!

We start off discussing the new standup special from Adam Sandler called 100% Fresh.  We gush a little too much about this special as we both loved it so much.

Next, Dhani talks about a small movie called Juliet, Naked starring Ethan Hawke, Chris O’Dowd, and Rose Byrne.  She enjoyed the story but knows that these types of movies aren’t for most people.  Then we both revisit Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again because John has been able to watch it now.  Since Dhani was so crazy about this movie, she was disappointed that John didn’t fall in love so quickly… though he tries to convince her that he did enjoy it.

Moving on to TV, Dhani only chose to discuss the BBC and Netflix series Bodyguard.  She talks about the twists and turns in unfolding the story.

Finally, we decide not to do our usual Actors’ Corner this week and instead use the same format to discuss our favorite scary movies.  These are the films WE love, like, hate, or haven’t seen and not necessarily the scariest or best movies.  And since John actually doesn’t enjoy horror films, this could get interesting.

Ep 21 – Here Come The Jerks

10-21-18

No new movies this week… but we still have a lot to talk about with pay-per-view movies and TV!  First, I am getting John caught up on some summer movies that I already saw, so we start with The Spy Who Dumped Me and TAG.  John gives his input on these movies.  And no real surprise, he really enjoyed them both!

Next, I saw Searching and RBG and I give my thoughts on both.  Searching is one of the best mystery movies I have seen in a while and I loved the twists and turns.  And then RBG is a documentary that I recommend to every person in this country.

Moving on to TV, I give my opinion on this season of Better Call Saul.  Then I watched the Netflix show The Haunting of Hill House.  Very creepy, but ultimately a good family story.  Next, I urge everyone to watch Arrow.  This season’s opener was so incredibly good and I think if you haven’t watched the previous seasons, you could start watching now.  It really is the best show in the Arrowverse.

Since the fall TV season is in full swing, I talk about my disappointment with the network shows (less all CW shows) and how I haven’t found a new network show this year that I love.  It’s really a bummer because many I have already stopped watching and the others, if they were to be canceled, I wouldn’t care.  But there are many new cable and streaming shows that I am loving:  Kidding, You, The Purge, Doctor Who and AHS:Apocalypse.

Did you know that I can read too???  I don’t very often, but I love biographies and here I talk about a book that just came out this week by Busy Philipps called This Will Only Hurt A Little.  It’s a fantastic read and she tells the truth about her experiences in early life and then in Hollywood.  Definitely recommended.

Finally, we finish with the Actors’ Corner and this week we chose Denzel Washington.  This was the toughest round we have had so far to choose his movies that we love, like, hate, haven’t seen, and want to watch.

Ep 20 – I Blame That Grammy Scene

10-6-18We took last week off because Dhani simply felt there wasn’t much to say after Fall TV premiere week.  Well, we’re back, so that means she has lots to say!

First, we both saw A Star Is Born and there is so much to unpack to this incredible film, that we speak about it for half of the podcast.  Settle in for quite a discussion.

Next, Dhani discusses the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor and how it should be required viewing for all human beings.

Moving on to TV, Dhani and John discuss their fall favs of The Good Place and Single Parents.  And then Dhani gives her first impressions of the new show A Million Little Things, and what new shows start or come back next week.

Finally, in the Actor’s Corner, we discuss Bradley Cooper’s projects that we love, like, hate, haven’t seen and want to watch.
