Fran and Chris are joined by special guest Antoine, as they discuss the differences between American, Swiss, and French cultures, what we’re doing for the rest of our lives, and what to expect from the recently released “Captain America” movie.
The end is nigh (for the academic year) as we discuss offensive slurs, Power Rangers, and our biggest regrets in college (less juicier than you’d think, though).
This week we talk about sneaking out on school trips, living in former brothels, clubbing in former bath houses, and the difference between internet celebrity and traditional celebrity!
Flashback to January 17th, 2016 – Amanda and Chris record a test podcast episode and talk memes, “The Martian,” and HGTV.
Chris and Fran *finally* get their friend and Bad Haircut member Amanda on the Haircast, in a dirtier-than-usual but not-that-dirty episode. We talk about the Art of Seduction™, “Buying Naked,” and “Bee Movie.”
Sam and Chris take a journey through probably the worst Wii U “action” “shooter” “game.”
IN MEMORY OF DANIEL
Join Chris, Fran, and our number one fan Raquel as they Powerpuff themselves, the World Cup, and objectifying others.
We continue our deep dive into hair and also weird reality shows, Yung Lean, and ask our guest Oz the hard questions.
How do we ultimately judge movies? We generally judge them by their individual merits, from the acting, directing, cinematography, and other element. But in some cases we may find ourselves comparing a movie to other films. Neither is particularly right or wrong, and I would guess that people do some combination of both.
In regards to my method of judging movies, I look at two things:
- What was the filmmakers’ conceptual or artistic intention of the film? What is the premise? What is the reason this film is being made?
- Was the premise taken to its full potential? Was it executed correctly? Was this the best possible film it could have been?
It’s this mindset that leads me to love something like the silly “Fast & Furious” movies with their well-direction action and choreography, simple premise, and relatable theme of family, and despise something like “The Amazing Spider-Man” reboot series, with their lack of any compelling premise (some nonsense mystery about Peter Parker’s parents) and horrific writing and structure.
On the eve of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s” release and the discussion regarding its negative reviews, I thought that it may be a good idea to look back at its predecessor “Man of Steel,” a film I felt had a great premise, but a poor execution.
In this episode, Fran, Chris, and guest Mariana give shout outs to as many people as possible, even to entire countries. Also, hair.
