Girls on Pop – Episode 9: So Many Movies!

Not soon enough

Not soon enough

After a few weeks of hiatus where one of us organized a festival and attended another while the other one went back to school, Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) finally managed to carve out a bit of time this week to record another episode of the podcast.

With so many great movies playing at the moment, we skipped over much of our usual trailer talk to dig into a couple of recent movies while still finding time to fangirl just a little about the new Beauty and the Beast trailer!

Review: Trolls

trollsmoviestill1

When the winter weather starts to set in, my spirits get low. I can’t help it. It’s dark when I leave the house in the morning, it’s dark when I come home and I spend most of the day indoors, occasionally looking out a window at either rainfall or a grey sky. So while Hollywood chooses this time of year to start shelling their award hopefuls, many of them emotionally draining dramas, the search for a palette cleanser seems more of a necessity than a choice and this year, DreamWorks Animation is delivering the goods.

Let’s be clear: Trolls is not particularly deep or nuanced. It’s an animated musical about Princess Poppy, the cheerful leader of the incessantly happy trolls, who leads a rescue mission to save her friends from the Bergens, a race of miserable creatures who believe happiness can only be achieved by eating trolls. Along the way Poppy falls in love and captures the heart of Branch (the grumpiest of the trolls), saves her friends and teaches the Bergens that happiness comes from within – not from eating her friends.

After the Credits Episode 198: VIFF Dispatch #3

viff2016

That’s a wrap! VIFF has come and gone in a whirlwind. It’s hard to believe two weeks of movie watching is already gone and though this year I didn’t manage to see quite as many movies as I’d hoped for, I mainly managed to make good choices and didn’t see too much I didn’t like.

In this final dispatch from the festival I’m (@themarina) joined by regular festival correspondent Bill Harris (@soundjam69) of Green Screen of Death, and friend of the show Lisa (who has appeared on our last few VIFF wrap shows) to count down our favourite movies of the festival.

After the Credits Episode 197: VIFF Dispatch #2

viff2016

We actually recorded this show earlier this week but things have been so crazy, it’s only going up today. Lucky for you, the festival is almost over at this point so we’ll be returning to our regularly scheduling posting in the coming weeks. Anywho…

In this dispatch, I’m (@themarina) joined by festival corespondent Bill Harris (@soundjam69) of the Green Screen of Death to talk about some more movies.

We’ll be coming at you with one final show in the coming days to wrap up the fest and count down our favorite films. Until then, be sure to follow-us on twitter, follow the festival hashtag #VIFF and check out the festival website for screening information – VIFF repeats have been announced and screenings will continue into next week!

After the Credits Episode 196: VIFF Dispatch #1

viff2016

Festival season has officially landed in Vancouver with the kick-off of the Vancouver International Film Festival last week.

As has become tradition, I’m ((@themarina) joined for our first dispatch from the festival by Bill Harris (@soundjam69) who is now also part of a really awesome podcast we’ve talked about in the past Green Screen of Death.

The intent was for this to be posted yesterday so it’s already a day late however, most of the discussion is still relevant as some of these movies are screening again over the next week + left of the festival, and because talking about movies just never really gets old.

We’ll be coming at you with another dispatch after the weekend of heavy movie watching but until then, be sure to follow-us on twitter, follow the festival hashtag #VIFF and check out the festival website for screening information.

After the Credits Episode 195: September Preview

Andrea Arnold FTW. Every. Single. Time.

Andrea Arnold FTW. Every. Single. Time.

Chalk this up to a cautionary tale. When Dale (Letterboxd), Colleen and I (Letterboxd) gathered last week to record this show, IMDb seemed to be having some sort of crisis of database management, showing movies that were already out as new releases and leaving out a bunch of other titles. This week, the glitch seems to have been fixed but as a result, we missed a number of titles which are (apparently) opening this month.

If anyone out there can recommend another release schedule which may be more accurate, please let us know. As for this episode… the movies we DID talk about are listed below.

The hero we need right now?

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.
