Harry Potters! From the then to the 2021 Reunion!

Harry Potters! From the then to the 2021 Reunion!

20 years of Harry Potter. It’s hard to believe that our little wizards are all grown up now! Join Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh as we take a trip through the wizarding world and examine this juggernaut of a franchise. With such amazing names as Alan Rickman, Daniel Radcliffe, Richard Harris, Michael Gambon, Gary Oldman and so on and so on.

HBO has released a tribute to the series they’ll we’ll navigate our way through as we discuss which houses, we are all a part of, as well as our favorite characters, films and a certain Twitter feed.

It’s a Hagrid sized show, that only a house elf would dare to miss, unless he had been first given a sock. This week, ’40 Going On 14’ is taking a trip to Hogwarts’s with wands, wizards and whomping willows. It’s going to get “Riddikulus”!

The Matrix 1999 vs The Matrix Resurrections 2021

The Matrix 1999 vs The Matrix Resurrections 2021

#Redpill or #bluepill?

What about that mythical brown pill?

If you are still plugged into ‘The #Matrix’ then you may be confused as to what our recent episode will be covering. If not, then welcome to the real world.

We all had our lives changed in 1999, when the original ‘Matrix’ film came out of nowhere and changed the modern landscape of action and science fiction films forever. It was a magical period of bullet time, wire work and Keanu’s transition to being a breathtaking legend.

With the recent release of ‘The Matrix #Resurrections’, we had to revisit a film that we never thought we’d see another sequel for. This is a deep dive back into the mythology and magic of a modern masterpiece and how it compares to its contemporary counterpart. Let’s plug back into ‘The Matrix’!

Show 400! The Listener Questions Show!

Show 400! The Listener Questions Show!

Can you believe it? We did it! 400 episodes and counting. That’s a difficult task that has been well worth completing. It’s hard to believe, but here we are.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, we’re changing things up and getting loose! We’ve tasked you, the listener, to provide us with questions. Things that wouldn’t make a whole episode or questions that you didn’t get answers too previously or just random stuff that you want to know!

We’re spending an entire show dedicated to what YOU want and having a dang good time doing it. If you’ve been with us since day one or are a brand new listener or anything else in between, thank you! We love all of you and appreciate your continued support as we blaze a trail towards our next 400 shows.

Excelsior!

Cowboy Bebop – The Anime 1999 v The Netflix 2021

Cowboy Bebop – The Anime 1999 v The Netflix 2021

3, 2, 1…. Let’s jam. How could we not start the new year, without talking about this show? An anime that ranks up there as one of the greatest of all time and now it’s a live action remake on Netflix. It’s our perfect formula for this show.

Spike, Faye and Jet are cruising the galaxy in search of the biggest bounty. Joined by Ein and Ed, what could go wrong? If you haven’t figured it out by now, we’re discussing ‘Cowboy Bebop’! The child of Hajime Yatate, this anime is now being brought to life by John Cho, Daniella Pineda and Mustafa Shakir.

We’re going to take a trip on the Bebop and find out if this bounty pays off big or if it’s just a big bust. Saddle up with Punch and Judy and let’s head for the skies! See you space cowboy….

Dune: Lynch 1984 v Villeneuve 2021

Dune: Lynch 1984 v Villeneuve 2021

We’re back, baby and we’re letting the spice flow like wine. After much time in the desert of hiatus, Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh have returned and they’re ready to take on Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’!

In 1984, David Lynch attempted to slay this monster of a sci-fi story. He brought along his friends Kyle MacLachlan, Sting and a whole lot of sandworms. In 2021, Denis Villeneuve is attempting the same thing, but with 99.9% less MacLachlan.

If you’re into watching Patrick Stewart stabbing at things, Sting in a codpiece, Jason Momoa being awesome or Zendaya squinting, then ‘Dune’ may be your holy grail of films. Pull out your spice rack and prepare for war, as ’40 Going On 14’ is heading to Arrakis for our ‘Dune’ show!

Battle of the Santas! Santa Claus: The Movie vs The Santa Clause!

Battle of the Santas! Santa Claus: The Movie vs The Santa Clause!

This show originally posted in 2013, and was lost during a server switch. Well now it’s found just in time for Christmas!

Ho Ho Ho! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The time we find out who’s naughty or nice and which film about Santa gets a lump of coal.

We’re gathered round the fireplace with our copies of ‘The Santa Clause’ and ‘Santa Claus: The Movie’, full of Christmas cheer and possible some alcohol. If you listen to only one Christmas themed podcast this year, then make it this one!

Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh are hung by the chimney with care, in the hopes that Saint Nicholas soon will be there. Also, hoping that somebody left out some cookies and milk for us too. We get hungry too, you know! Merry Christmas!

How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Dr. Seuss versus Jim Carrey!

How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Dr. Seuss versus Jim Carrey!

*This show was originally posted as #14 back in 2013, but was lost for a bit after server problems. Well it’s been found and cleaned up and it’s here for 2021’s Christmas season! Be ready for 3 more lost holiday shows this month!

You’re a mean one…MR. GRINCH. Everyone knows this song, and everyone knows Thurl Ravenscroft’s baritone voice singing it (but not everyone knows his totally METAL name.) This week we go back to the 1966 #DrSeuss TV special “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” up against Jim Carrey’s drug fueled fever-dream movie “The Grinch” from 2000!

Which Grinch will come out on top? Well, give it a listen and see!
