I’m not crying, you’re crying. In a whirling kaleidoscope of colors and emotion, Pixar’s Up is just as fun and emotionally packed in a current watch as it was when it came out over 10 years ago. Featuring a curmudgeon and a lively kid, this movie will take you on an adventure that gives hope amongst the grief. Grab a handkerchief and listen in to Jim and A.Ron fight back a few tears to chat about this movie.
For an 80’s sci-fi family movie, Flight of the Navigator holds up remarkably well. The child actor is great, the cutting-edge computer effects hardly show their age, and the plot is more well-considered than most movies of the era. That’s probably why we were both so taken with it as children and remain nostalgic about it to this day. Thanks to Kira for commissioning our coverage of this very literal Pee-Wee Herman vehicle.
This time on OTC we catch up to the half-way point of Ted Lasso season 2, Talk about Disney’s epic adventure movie “Jungle Cruise”, as well as our first impressions of Reservation Dogs and Patron topics. A.Ron also talks about Marvel’s new “What If…?” animated series, the Netflix furry action happening in Beastars, the Friends reunion he didn’t have a chance to talk about sooner, and a wrapup on Schmigadoon!.
We’ve seen the first 3 episodes of The Terror: Infamy, the latest in the anthology from AMC and we’re ready to give our initial impressions. Also, we invite producer of our new show Pickle Me This: A Rick and Morty Podcast and TV business writer for New York Post’s DECIDER, Scott Porch, on the show to discuss Disney’s announcement of the bundle price for their package of online streaming services.
Jim and A.Ron have seen the “live-action” remake of The Lion King, but why? Why was this film made? I mean, we know the rea$on$ The Mouse is jamming this joyless attempt at cinema down our throats, but really, why? A stellar vocal cast can’t even come close to making it worth it. It’s hard to think of a more pointless endeavor, and it’s \all down hill after the cold open. Stay at home, save your money, and put on your best copy of the original on your biggest screen and crank up the sound. Enough with this pretender. Long live the original King!
If you’re wishing for a three-way review of Disney’s latest live-action adaptation, Aladdin, then listener you’re in luck. Wish granted. Cecily, Jim, and I went to see it tonight with appropriately low expectations, but were very pleasantly surprised at how much fun and energy the movie provided. Better, the script smartly adapted the original, improving it’s pacing while also adding depth to Jafar’s intrigue and Jasmine’s character, making it smarter and more relatable to modern audiences. The Tomatometer is kinda brutal for Al and friends right now (59% as of this writing), so take our review with a grain of salt. And we’re still skeptical of the long term viability of these live-action adaptations, but we feel like this movie is proof that they aren’t necessarily doomed to be pointless wastes of time.
Cecily and A.Ron are back to discuss Incredibles 2, a sequel that’s been a long time in the making. Brad Bird returns to direct the original cast and some fun new cameos. If you liked Incredibles, this is more of it in every way. More supers, bigger action scenes, more Mr. Incredible angst, super teenage dating, and the best animal control scene in movie history. The script is literally the same script from the first, with the same twist at the mid-way point, but the plot is really secondary to the pleasure of watching the characters metaphorically and literally bounce off each other.
