We recorded this show during the final days of the Olympics last week and our recording was shortly preempted by a break to watch the relay race which leads us to kick things off this week with a bit of discussion of one of the biggest events in the world before Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) dig into some talk about entertainment news and happenings including a couple of new trailers and some deep discussion on the future of the DC Extended Universe.
It doesn’t happen very often but on this month’s episode of the Media Spew, we all happened to watch the same show. Yes, as with everyone else, Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) all manged to get sucked into the cult of “Stranger Things.”
Aside from Netflix, we also caught up with a great assortment of movies, both new and old. Listen in for all the goodness!
Summer movie season is coming to an end and August is a perfect encapsulation of that fact: a mix of last minute tentpole releases with a mix of indie fare that marks the end of one festival season and the beginning of another.
Coleen returns this month to join Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) as we look ahead to the interesting mix of titles being released in August which includes a handful of great looking but poorly titled releases.
Dale also introduces his new project, a storytelling show called Terminal City Tales which you can check out here.
It may have sprung on me out of no-where but there’s no question that when SDCC kicked off late last week, I heard it all the way up in Vancouver – as did everyone else connected to the internet all over the world. I mean, did Netflix steal opening day or what?
Oh yeah, then DC came along and obliterated it with a trailer for this little movie they have coming out next year. I think it’s called Wonder Woman???
This week Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) dig into some of the offerings unveiled at SDCC; from new trailers for stuff we were already excited about to “big” announcements that rocked the convention and geekdom in general.
For the last few decades, summer movie season promised at least a dozen movies of varying degrees of awesome and featuring ridiculous plots, loads of action and maybe even a couple of end-of-the-world scenarios but this summer is proving to be a huge disappointment. Where have the summer movies gone?
This week Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) talk Finding Dory, delve into the discussion of the missing summer movies and get a little deep with the current culture of what Marina dubs “Peter Pan Syndrome.”
SPOILER WARNING! We get spoilery with the Now You See Me 2 discussion but nobody cared about that movie and frankly, neither should you. Still, if you plan on seeing it down the road and don’t want to be spoiled on the details, you might want to skip ahead a few minutes once that discussion starts. It’s pretty short.
Colleen is still MIA (something to do with a job that is making her super tired) so Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) forge ahead without her to talk about some of the stuff we’ve been enjoying of late – from the tube and all the great stuff currently on TV to what we’ve been reading and listening to.
We’re late! We’re late! For a very important date! No time to say “Hello”, goodbye! We’re late! We’re late! We’re late!
We’re Coleen-less this week and though Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) scrambled and managed to record the show last week, the producer (AKA me) didn’t get around to editing the show until today. Soooo, apologies to everyone who was anxiously anticipating our banter on this past weekend’s opening films but as they say, better late than never!
We’ve seen stuff! Really!
Much of the TV we usually watch is either on hiatus or about to disappear on summer break so this month, Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) touch base on a couple of finales, share thoughts on some recently seen movies, books and the usual rundown of podcasts!
Can you believe it? Another episode already? There was just so much to talk about and we managed to find the time to record so why hold on to the gloriousness when you can enjoy it in a more timely manner? I mean, you want to fangirl with us right? And there is fangirling this week!
This week Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) talk Hollywood news including announcement of the upcoming Flash movie director, the DCU “Rebrith” and our feelings on Netflix tracking our viewing habbits before we get into some movie talk.
SPOILER WARNING! We get spoilery with the Me Before You discussion for both the book and the movie and though we say that it’s the last thing we’re going to talk about but we lied! We couldn’t help ourselves and added a few things at the end so… the spoiler filled conversation starts at 00:52:00 and ends at 01:04:32.
