It's a big episode but we had a lot to say. Michael, David, and Dave are joined by special guest Noel from the Masters of Carpentry podcast to discuss Hyung-rae Shim's Dragon Wars, M Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, and the third entry in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Two of those are usually maligned, but our thoughts on them may surprise you. As will the secret connection that ties all three films together.
This month we're joined by special guest Paxton Holley (Nerd Lunch, Cult Film Club) to discuss some older films: The Uninvited (1944) starring Ray Milland, Konga (1961) with Michael Gough, and Michael Caine in Get Carter (1971). Hear what we thought and see if you can guess the secret connection between the three films!
In the second episode of our sadly Erikless summer, we're joined by special guest Siskoid of Siskoid's Blog of Geekery. Mark May leads the discussion of brachiosaurs, brownies, and broken fingers. Have a listen as we go over Jurassic Park, Notting Hill,and Big Trouble, then see if you can guess the secret connection between all three.
While Erik's away for the summer, CT from Nerd Lunch sits in with the gang as the first of several guests for the upcoming months. We're also down a Mark, but Dave leads the rest of us in a discussion of hobbits, hackers, and highways. Tis was a tough connection to guess, so sit down with some pipeweed or a cookie and see if you can figure it out. Just don't touch that cigarette lighter.
There's no guessing the connection this time. Michael, Mark, Dave, and David get together for an impromptu look at Prince's three movies.
David the Younger takes the reins this episode to fly us through Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive, Hiccup and Toothless in How to Train Your Dragon, and Rocket and Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy. But no, the secret connection isn't that they're buddy movies. Take a listen and see if you can guess what it is before David reveals it at the end.
Sadly, Mark couldn't join us this episode, but Erik leads Michael, Dave, and David in a discussion about classic '50s scifi, '90s teen comedy, and a Disney "masterpiece." Is Forbidden Planet as good as it is influential? Is 10 Things I Hate About You a worthy heir to the John Hughes legacy? Does The Lion King live up to its reputation? And what do all of these movies have in common? Tune in to find out. Plus: Our favorite Disney animated features!
Welcome to the movie podcast that's also a game! What do the John Ford classic Stagecoach, John Hughes' She's Having a Baby, and JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot have in common? Join hosts Michael May, Erik Johnson, Mark May, Dave Roof, and David May as they discuss all three films and look for connections. Then stay tuned for the end to hear the movies for next month so that you can watch and play along. It's a mystery! It's movies! It's Mystery Movie Night!
