020: Where’s Nemo?!?
In our previous episode, we tried to determine the best Disney movie of all time. But a couple of things happened. And so, we decided not to reveal the winner because we realized we needed to refine the category and put out some better criteria. HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: Two of our listeners actually got upset that Cars and Finding Nemo were not on our list. Jake loves The Incredibles. It’s a great movie, but for him, it doesn’t make it to the list of all-time best Disney movies.Yup, we admit Finding Nemo may have been a miss on our part!What's so special about Disney is that wherever you are in your life, a story can just hit you that it will forever be your favorite movie.Next time, if we're going to do Disney movies, we will make sure to drill it down to a specific category like best Disney princess, best Disney guy movie, or whatever it is.Be sure to keep your emotions out when you vote to make sure you’re doing it objectively.

016: The Best & Worst Theater Experiences
Jan 17 2022
016: The Best & Worst Theater Experiences
Today, we're talking about our best and worst theater experiences. While we had our fair share of the best and most magical theater experiences, we also had quite a taste of our worst experiences – ever – which is one of the reasons we don’t want to go back to the theaters anymore and we much rather prefer doing movie nights at home.  HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: Being able to go to these unique, classical, or retro theaters just adds to the overall experience. There’s something magical about watching a movie in a drive-in theater while seeing a shooting star and enjoying a box of pizza with your loved ones and your dogs.Imagine a person in front of your seat who keeps belching or someone who previously watched the movie spewing out spoilers the entire time. You never want to sit beside these kinds of people for sure!Recliners inside movie theaters don't work because people come in and they will only make themselves at home. And so, they just don’t work – period.We saw Harry Potter Part 2 at least five times. It was the experience and the movie itself.Kim and Kalee and all four generations of them went to see Titanic. Lesson learned: If you're seeing a popular movie, always ask how many tickets are left. And go with more flexible people who are willing to go for the next screening time, unless you’re okay sitting in the front row. RESOURCES:  "As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

015: The Best Movie Sequels EVER!
What better way to start the year than watching some must-watch movie sequels! Is there a movie that you think is better than the original? This week, we talk about the best movie sequels – ever! And if you haven’t watched some of these, these are great movie ideas worth putting on your list. HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: Kalee loves ​​The Godfather Part II (Don’t forget about setting up a Godfather-themed movie night at home as well!). Her other picks are Guardians of the Galaxy (the soundtrack is awesome too!), 22 Jump Street, Rocky III, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.Kim’s top picks: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation 2, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Deadpool 2, Wonder Woman 2.Jake’s picks are The Empire Strikes Back (It’s also the movie that made Darth Vader the icon that he is), Hugh Jackman’s Logan, Terminator 2, and Rocky IV.If you have never seen Wonder Woman and you want to see it, go in and realize that Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor are not in this movie. Go into it with an open mind and you will really enjoy it! Don't compare it to Marvel and even the other DC movies, and just let it be.

014: Christmas Movies We Hate
Today, we're going to talk about Christmas movies that we “hate”...or maybe that’s too strong of a word – so let’s use…“dislike.” While we love the people who play the characters in many of these movies, sometimes some things just don’t work well together.  HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: What is the one item you have to have in your Christmas stocking?Why we didn’t really dig Miracle on 34th Street (1947) There were a lot of things in A Christmas Story that we just didn’t get. People loved “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” but we thought the movie was just too long and it just felt forced.Other movies that don’t work for us: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Jingle All the Way,” Will Ferrell’s “Elf,” and the 1954 movie “White Christmas”“The Family Stone” and ”Love the Coopers” are sad Christmas movies that don't work for us either.

012: “You might wanna look me up sometime, Barbara”
Dec 13 2021
012: “You might wanna look me up sometime, Barbara”
Last week, we talked about our list of best Christmas movies, and we purposely left off the 2008 movie, Four Christmases. It's one of those movies we feel most people haven't seen and don't know about it. Here’s why you might wanna look it up some time! HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: Which Christmas movie character are we most likelyBasically, Kate (Reese Witherspoon) and Brad (Vince Vaughn) can't get out of visiting four houses in one day; hence, the Four Christmases. House #1: Brad's dad (Robert Duvall) – this was our favorite house!House #2: Kate's mom (Mary Steenburgen) – many funny scenes except for one long scene which we thought was completely unnecessary. The nativity play scene is just hilarious!House #3: Brad's mom (Sissy Spacek) – her boyfriend was Vince Vaughn's best friend growing up. This is where Brad just completely shut down.House #4: Kate's dad (Jon Voight) – everything in this house was okay but there’s a part that just makes Jake cringe each time he watches it!

Thanksgiving movies are not as prevalent as Christmas movies because Thanksgiving often gets overlooked. But we're not going to overlook it tonight!

And they're all still little so it feels more nostalgic.Other movies you can watch for Thanksgiving: The Lord of the Rings series, The Holiday, When Harry Met Sally, Dutch, Sweet Home AlabamaThe Last Waltz takes place on Thanksgiving but it doesn't necessarily have to do anything with Thanksgiving.

His musical score for Harry Potter just takes you back to the feeling. They connected all this stuff together with all the music throughout to hit that emotion. (He did the score for Star Wars too.)Danny Elfman’s musical scores are just as good. Think all Tim Burton movies.

But today, we're going to be talking about movies that have let us down and have burned us! HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: The second of the Star Wars trilogy, The Last Jedi, just let Jake down.

005: We Watched Hocus Pocus and...
All scary movies/horror movies have certain cliches that everyone knows. Today, we’re sharing the most memorable ones for us. We also recently watched the original Halloween movie from 1978 (and the remakes) and we’re sharing what we think of it and why you should watch it on Halloween. Oh! And we also talk about what we think of Disney’s cult classic, Hocus Pocus. Is it worth watching it? (Jake doesn’t think so!) HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: Some common horror/slasher movie cliches: Leaving a vehicle with a running engine to get awayWhy the antagonists are always picking the young, half-naked girlsAfter everybody is dead, the only person who lives in every slasher movie is the pure and innocent girl. Texas Chainsaw Massacre as the first slasher movieWhere the mask from the Halloween movie came fromHaven’t watched Hocus Pocus yet? Watch Halloweentown instead.Other Halloween movies you should watch and those you probably shouldn’t RESOURCES:  "As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Love Halloween? In this episode, we’re sharing a list of our top Halloween movies.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK’S SHOW: Sharing our favorite Halloween costumes growing up: Jake as Beavis, Kalee as a black cat, and Kim as an alien head (her best yet her worst costume too!)Our Halloween movie picks: Coraline, Casper, Halloween, White Noise, HalloweentownJohnny Depp and Tim Burton collaborations: Dark Shadows, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and more!Other picks: The Lost Boys, Interview with the Vampire, I Know What You Did Last SummerLet Me In is a remake of a Swedish film. If you want a movie that’s got depth to it and puts you in the environment you’re in, then this is it!We actually watch The Shining together each year and there are always things we had to debate on. If you’ve watched it, let us know what you think: Was Jack always the caretaker? You’ve got to watch M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense if you haven’t yet!Jake highly recommends Hereditary (but not for the kids!) but ​​Paranormal Activity 1 and Paranormal Activity 3 have scared him more than any movie he has ever seen in his life.Finally, we’re discussing whether these movie ideas are Halloween movies or not!
