Girls on Pop – Episode 2: No One Is Excited (Except Us)


After an unexpectedly long hiatus, Girls on Pop returns with episode two which is chalk full of great conversation!

This week Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) start with some deep discussion on early reaction to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and how the movie seems to have reached oversaturation before it even opens.

We then we move onto a bit of discussion on the new trailer for Now You See Me 2 followed by a quick, spoiler free dip into “Daredevil” season 2 (spoiler free because I haven’t seen any of it yet!) and we finishing strong with a long and VERY SPOILERIFIC discussion on the latest “The 100” scandal. Don’t worry, we give you plenty of notice and opportunity to turn off the show before we talk spoilers!

Soundtrack Of Your Life #17 – Save The Last Dance

Ain’t nobody listenin’ to you but me..

Each episode, Corey Pierce welcomes a guest (or guests) onto the show who has chosen a compilation or soundtrack that speaks to a memorable era of their life. The soundtrack will play underneath and serves as a springboard to discussion about the music itself, how it works within the film, and what was going on with their life at the time of its release.

For episode 16, Corey finally welcomes self-described gaylord farquad film blogger, the ever fabulously foul-mouthed and never boring Paolo Kagaoan to discuss the late 90s/early 00s R&B-laced soundtrack to Save The Last Dance, as well as stories of arriving to inner-city Toronto as a gay immigrant. Nikki also is back to mostly listen in as we reminisce over wine and Easter cake.

Mamo 440: From Chi-Raq to Zootopia


Spike Lee’s new (to Canada, anyway) film Chi-Raq is absolutely splendid, and we gush about it for a good long while before trying to pick apart the racial politics of the hit animated film, Zootopia (which, hey, kudos for having racial politics, Z!). Plus: Matt B. sick of superheroes? Is this the Bizarro World??

After the Hype #132 – Crimson Peak



Welcome to our spookiest episode yet. We’re joined by special guests Danielle and Ben as we take on the demented mind of Guillermo Del Toro in CRIMSON PEAK. Beware. BEWARE! But, like, still listen to the episode.

Cinecast Episode 433 – Stay for the Limb Licking

We should probably just get right to it as there is a lot to cover this week folks! First off, we have our good friend Corey Pierce of the Soundtrack of your Life podcast joining us this week to help in a (SPOILER!) discussion of the spiritual successor to Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane. After that, there are some other films in the cinemas these days so we dive into both Stephen Chow’s Mermaid and the astoundingly great movie that got yanked from US cinemas at the zero hour, The Little Prince.

The Watch List has documentaries, remakes, young adult epics, the slowest film of all time (yes, one of us shut it off after an hour), James Gillham’s (Google him) favorite film of all time, a Ben Stiller marathon, revisiting of an Oscar nominee, Wrestlemania and Thundercats in the Soprano’s TV era. If there isn’t something in there to float your proverbial boat, then you’re probably not even reading this in the first place. We do have some connection issues with our guest towards the end as Corey drifts off into the ether.

Cinecast Episode 431 – Norwegian Long

The whole gang is back together after technology, illness, work and vacations have kept us apart for so long. Interesting that it’s a Disney animated film with talking animals that brings us together. The boys decide to skip over the UK actioner and the middle east satire for some good ol’ fashioned, hare raising, adventure comedy with ZOOTOPIA. In The Watch List we do have some more theatrical things to mention as well as Kurt checking out some very timely political satire from 1992 and some not-so-very-timely political intrigue from 2016. Andrew tries to find some more cinema that resembles The VVitch as closely as possible and Matt dives into some old Otto Preminger and revisits the Academy’s choice for best picture of the year.

Before all of this we recap a little bit of Matt’s trip to the Galapagos and anticipate some sort of site with more video, images and hopefully a Galapacast. So we definitely have a lot of fun getting the band back together on this one and if you stay until the very end, there’s even some bonus content of Andrew and Kurt talking the nuance of the traditional sitcom.
