This week the boys fully expected to be blown away by ‘The Goldfinch’, it has the cast, the director, and the source material to be an immediate Oscar contender. Tune in and let us know what you think and whether or not we should be expecting to see ‘The Goldfinch’ make a run during award season.
This week was a barn burner. The boys had a rousing discussion about news from Disney and Apple, gave their opinions on ‘The Spy’ and ‘Late Night,’ and then dove headfirst into one of the best movies of the year, ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon.’
This week the boys record their monthly Patreon Directed episode featuring the Yorgos Lanthimos mind-bender ‘Dogtooth’ and the Chinese language blockbuster ‘The Wandering Earth.’ This one is guaranteed to knock your socks off!
It’s the last week of March Movie Madness! Could this get more exciting? ‘Captain America: Civil War’ vs ‘Wonder Woman.’ Marvel vs DC, man vs woman, indestructible shield vs irresistible lasso, dorky-goody-two-shoes hero vs goddess-like heroine: you get the picture. For our final matchup we’re taking it up a notch—everyone who casts a vote will also be entered to win a Steam Link courtesy of the We Are Entertained podcast! One lucky listener will be announced along with the victor of March Movie Madness on our ‘Avengers: Endgame’ episode. Make sure you don’t miss it. Get your votes in now!
‘Captain Marvel’, what a great way to kick off March Movie Madness! This week represents the first Marvel Cinematic Bookend for our March Movie Madness Comic Book edition. We’ll be tallying your votes and crowning a comic book movie champion just in time for the release of Avengers: Endgame. Make sure you vote early and vote often: who do you think belongs in the Comic Book Final Four?
This week we kick things off by talking about our new and improved Patreon perks. We’d love for you to let us know what you think of the new options and please, PLEASE let us know if there’s something you’d like to see that we haven’t thought of yet.
Yowzers, we’ve got a humdinger of an episode for you this week. Not only do the boys give their take on ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ but we have two very special guests of the very small Wickersham variety! Chloe, who you hear Chris talk about all the time, and Lucas, who is the most little brother of all little brothers, drop in and share their perspective on RBTI. You don’t want to miss this one!
The boys are back this week and, in the spirit of football season, Matt calls an audible. Instead of fulfilling last week’s promise and seeing ‘The Predator,’ we take a somewhat predictable turn and check out the latest Anna Kendrick movie (surprise, surprise, surprise) ‘A Simple Favor.’ What do you think, did we make the right call?
What can you say about this week’s movie? It seemed like it had everything going for it: star-studded cast, iconic franchise, media hype out the wazoo, a disappointing showing by ‘Solo.’ We’re ripe for another runaway hit. Sigh, if only.
It’s all over the news, ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ is being called a failure. What did the boys think? I can’t reveal all of our secrets, you’ll have to listen for details, but I will give you a clue and say that our thoughts were more positive than negative. We do talk a little bit about what other people are saying about the movie but we’re sure you’ve read everything everyone else has said – tune in and find out what we loved, what we hated, and what baffled us about ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’.
After an unexpected week off, the boys knock the rust off with a sure-fire winner and what must surely be the 37th feature film for The Rock of 2018, ‘Rampage.’ There was a long time where Chris couldn’t quite wrap his head around the phenomenon of The Rock but this movie may just have pushed him over the edge. What do you think, are we entering a phase where there’s just too much The Rock or would you be happy with a new feature every week starring His Muscleboundness?
A very strange collection of entries in the world of cinema this week. Despite fierce criticism and intense opposition from Chris, the boys took on ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ as this week’s feature. One of us wound up loving it, the other was a bit let down. Surprise, both of us thought it was a terrible movie! That bit of confusing nonsense just about sums up our show this week; give it a listen and see if you can piece together what we thought of this movie. I’d sure love to hear your opinions on it!
This week we take on the new comedy ‘Game Night,’ which confused the heck out of us during planning because normally “Game Night” doesn’t show up on the calendar without beer and beefy queso to accompany it. (Can you say 3-for-1 on Tostitos Scoops?) The boys went into this one with wildly different expectations, but their reactions may surprise you.
It’s our 4th Annual Oscar Pre-Show Extravaganza! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the format, this episode is a little different than most of the others. The boys run through the nine (yes, nine) Best Picture nominees for the 90th Annual Academy Awards.
This week the boys revisit the topic of films being “snubbed” at the Oscars as they tackle what can only be called the best film of 2017 with no Oscar nominations. Do yourself a favor and get out to the theaters and see ‘Hostiles’ and then immediately listen to this episode!
We weren’t sure how this week was going to turn out. When you pick the featured movie specifically because you know it won’t be nominated for an Oscar, you’re really rolling the dice.
This week’s show is just full of delight. Delightful ramblings, delightful performances, delightful cinematic experiences. Just delightful! It might be a difficult ask in this busy award show season, but if it’s playing in your local cinema you have absolutely got to get out and see ‘The Shape of Water.’ It’s going to get nominations, it’s going to be talked about, it’s going to be on your short list of favorite movies this year. Trust me. It’s delightful.
A mysterious natural disaster forces Chris out of the theater early during our featured film ‘Ladybird’ but he makes up for missing the ending by getting into an early screener of ‘Darkest Hour’. The end result is a net win for you, dear listeners, with a chance at a giveaway.
This week the boys feasted on Pixar’s latest animated wonder ‘Coco.’ Much like the actual theater experience, if all you’re interested in is hearing what they thought, feel free to fast-forward through the insufferable Disney/’Frozen’ nonsense at the beginning. Bonus points if you can guess which of us got up and walked out of the theater to complain about the wrong movie being played!
We really missed Richard this week. Why does he have to spend so much time actually making movies instead of sitting around talking about them?! Join us as we dive into the latest adaptation of Agatha Christie’s ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ and struggle mightily to pronounce the name of the miraculously mustachioed hero Hercule Poirot. Also, apparently, Chris doesn’t know who Kenneth Branagh is? Strange.
Things get a little intense this week on the show. Blame it on world events, blame it on family issues, or just chalk it up to three guys who get deep inside one another’s heads week in and week out.
This week, we dive into the thrilling world of Mitch Rapp in the movie ‘American Assassin.’ This adaptation of Vince Flynn’s electrifying novel of the same name is sure to get everyone’s heart pumping and, if true to the novels, provide the world with a fresh look at the spy thriller. Should you get into the theaters to see this one or just curl up with a nice PSL and get lost in Flynn’s novels? Tune in and find out what our boys thought!
Another pitiful week at the box office, another Very Special Episode of We Are Entertained! This week Matt and Chris take a look back at what 2017 has offered up so far and reminisce about some of their favorites. Everyone loves lists, at least that’s what the SEO masterminds tell me, so please accept this offering of our top 5 films of early 2017.
This right here, if you’re of a certain age, is what you might call ‘We Are Entertained: A Very Special Episode.’
This week the boys jump in and share their reaction to Charlize Theron’s new action thriller Atomic Blonde. What do you think, trite rehash of a played out genre or a subtle and clever reimagining of the spy thriller?
With Richard traveling once again, Matt and Chris are left to do battle over Christopher Nolan’s newest film ‘Dunkirk.’ I don’t think two people could walk out of a movie theater with a bigger difference of opinion. This one’s definitely a split decision; whose corner will you wind up in?
The boys get their ape on this week and check out the third installment (Ninth installment?) of the Planet of the Apes franchise, War for the Planet of the Apes.
Matt and Richard are invited to a screener of Baby Driver and Chris has the opportunity to interview them and find out what they thought of the latest offering from Edgar Wright.
It’s been a little too huggie-feelie around here the past few weeks and it’s about time for the fellas to disagree on a movie and really get into it. Challenge accepted! This week’s episode is what the show is all about, join us as we dive into the mysterious jungles of Amazonia and duke it out over ‘The Lost City of Z’, it’s likely you’ll agree with one of us!
This week the boys had the great pleasure of a timely interview with Tony McFarr, Chris Pratt’s fantastic stunt double in many of his recent films including this week’s feature ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ (48:49 in the show). This interview was a blast and I think it went really well; let us know what you thought!
