Jon, Blair, Bryan, and Chelsea H get personal as they talk about two of the best movies from 2018, Eighth Grade and Tully. We plumb the depths of our own experiences as middle schoolers and two of us relate how Tully synced up with their own time in the maternity ward. Bryan also takes a hard pass on standing up for his gender.
Jon, Shane, JR, and Drew sit down to discuss several of our favorite movies from 2018. While we push back a bit on Shane's pick of Isle of Dogs, we have nothing but praise for the sushi prep scene, which took 32 days to film, not eight. Sorry, Isle of Dogs animators.
Jon, Shane, and JR talk about the best movies and TV of 2018 at the halfway point, including You Were Never Really Here, A Quiet Place, and the World Cup. Shane also hangs out a shingle for podcast services and Jon worries that he planted his basil too close to the road.
Jon, Blair, Drew, and eventually Joe sit down to talk about notable TV shows that aired in 2017, singling out some bonkers moments from shows like The Young Pope and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. We also drop a sick burn on an obscure basketball player for the Evansville Aces, so watch out for that.
Jon, Bryan, and Drew continue the MMC's discussion of noteworthy movies from 2017 by praising Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in spite of themselves, fawning over Lady Bird, and still not understanding the critical love for A Ghost Story.
The MMC gets together to discuss some of the highs and lows in the year in movies. We write some pull-quotes for the Shape of Water poster, Jon is demoralized by the success of the latest xXx movie, and Shane devises a rating system fit for a haughty Frenchman.
The MMC gets together to talk about some of the best and worst movies/TV of the previous year, as well as achievements in university amateur musical theater circa the mid-2000's. We discuss, among other things, the various OJ Simpson trial pieces, Ben Stiller's cold streak, and Triple 9's great poster that promises more than it can deliver.
