Everyone has seen the video of a young Tom Cruise gyrating his way through his parents’ living room in his tighty-whiteys but did you know there’s a whole movie that happens after that? That movie is “Risky Business”, the topic of this week’s Prestige podcast.
This week’s Prestige podcast skirts the edge of what you can reasonably claim to be “prestige”,Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. That’s right, Kevin Costner battles Alan Rickman and an English accent with the help of Morgan Freeman in this film that can’t decide if it wants to be a grim and gritty retelling or a campy romp through the classic legend. Get your quiver and bow ready and check out the podcast!
Ah jeeze, for prestige this week we’re talking Fargo. Now that’s the 1996 cinematic version doncha know. Though of course, we also end up talking about the FX Series, too. We love Coen brothers movies in general and this one in particular.
I think it’s safe to say, based on the tone of the discussion, this is the episode everyone has been waiting for. CONTINUITY BABY! I suppose it could have been disappointing if you were holding out hope for a live-action episode starring Xtopher Lloyd, but it answers a lot of questions that we’ve had for seasons now and sets up some truly interesting possibilities for the future of Rick and Morty. Check out the podcast to hear us discuss them.
This is definitely the first part of a two-part season finale, but it sneaks up on you thanks to a pretty engaging plot involving Rick replacing Morty with a couple of crows. Personally, I think I’d rather have seen the “Half a Paul Giamatti” episode, but I enjoyed this one nonetheless. Check out the podcast to hear our thoughts.
This week, we’ve got my absolute favorite Paul Giamatti movie, Sideways. It’s a well-written but also hilarious movie where an extremely depressed Paul Giamatti begrudgingly helps his college roommate philander his way through northern California wine country. It has some all-time classic Giamatti moments that we can’t wait to talk about. Get Sideways with us this on this podcast.
Here’s the continuity you’ve been looking for. We finally deal with the tragedy of Rick’s artificially preserved best friend, Birdperson in an episode loosely based on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check out the podcast to hear us hypothesize about the canon implications of this episode, among other things, and join us back here during the week of September 5th for the back-to-back airing of the final two season 5 episodes.
Oh boy, the community is divided over this episode. Turns out, so is our podcast. Join us for a discussion of S05E07 “Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion” which is either a perfect example of why the haters don’t deserve anymore Rick and Morty or a perfect example of why the latest season is complete crap, depending on which type of toxic fan you are.
Rick and Morty take on Turkey Day by getting into the holiday spirit quite a bit more literally than most of us. Join us for Thanksgiving in July with our podcast for season 5, episode 6, “Ricky & Morty’s Thanksploitation Spectacular”.
It’s debatable who’s raising more hell this week, Rick’s joyriding car or the cenobites who are feeding off of Jerry’s cringe. We’re mixed on this episode but where we do agree is that it’s definitely better than the last one. Check out the podcast for more thoughts on Amortycan Grickfitti.
