Watching Dead - 1105 – Out of the Ashes

I’d love to talk about Carol’s impassioned plea to bring Aaron back from the brink, or how Eugene is the only sane one in the truly insane group of survivors who want to set up a new life in The Commonwealth, thereby completely abandoning the people they came to find help for, or how Negan is absolutely right and Maggie is a maniac on a suicide mission… but I can’t. I’m so distracted by the new group of sh*tty pre-teens bullying Judith that I’m literally seeing red. WHERE’S MY BAT?!

Bald Move Pulp - Flight of the Navigator (1986)

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.

Drive (2011)

It’s been 10 years since Drive hit theaters and boosted the vaporwave aesthetic into the mainstream with its art and soundtrack. There are several scenes and a definite “feel” to this movie that are unforgettable. You know the ones I’m talking about, but does it hold up in 2021 and is there enough substance to Drive to make it more than just style? Find out with us in this 10th anniversary podcast.

Brokeback Mountain (2005)

Brokeback Mountain is a movie that received a lot of attention, both from critics and the media, when it came out in 2005. That was likely just due just as much to it being a movie about two men in love that treated it like any other star-crossed relationship as it was the incredible performances of everyone involved, but specifically the lead actors. Join us for a discussion of this Oscar-winning film.
