We’re finding our way back for a look at Finding Dory with a return of our dear friend Chelsea! She’s joining the gang to discuss clumsy whales, husband crabs, and busted birds. All that plus an ending that may have been a bit too much. Don’t forget to give it a listen!
This time we’re scrapping the bottom of the barrel to bring you another pair of feature related shorts! We have Mater and the Ghostlight (2006) and Your Friend the Rat (2007). One is absolutely awful and the other is about rats so we’ll let you figure it out. Come help the Asterixar boys get through this because we can see the (ghost)light at the end of the tunnel!
Come warm your cockles with a new pair of shorts! This time we’re chatting about Mike’s New Car (2002) and Jack-Jack Attack (2005). We’ll get into car talk, baby talk, and an impromptu Ratzenberger Report! Plus at the end there’s a tease of something special in the works. Come on down to Asterixar town!
In 2016 when Chadwick Boseman showed up as T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War, as suave as humanly possible and with an undeniable presence for a character in an introductory/cameo role, he turned in the type of performance that begged for a deeper dive. And when he was so gracious to put on a Vibranium (we’ll get there) panther suit and start flipping around, kicking ass, I wondered how it took so long to bring the Black Panther to the movie screen. It was the perfect amount of screen time, creating as much wonder as hype for a new character, something Marvel has nearly perfected inside its all encompassing Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Fast forward to 2018, where we’re all in a post Wakanda world, gifted with one of the best Marvel films to date.
Straight from the headquarters, the Asterixar boys are broadcasting a brand new pod for 2015’s Inside Out! There’ll be talk of how to properly deal with your emotions, embarrassing childhood experiences, and whether or not random boners is still a thing. All that good plus an extra long Ratzenberger report on this banger of an episode!
Hey nerds, it’s your favorite time of year again! We’re in the midst of listicle season but where most of you are looking back upon the year that was in “cinema” I endeavor on, hoping to pop a few future gems your way among an overall list that will most assuredly feature at least three movies from Disney. Are you intrigued? Have you already gone back and looked at last year’s list to see how totally right I was about everything? What, you didn’t like The Dark Tower?
We gathered the Three Caballeros to break down Pixar’s beautiful new movie, Coco! Come for the Spanish lessons from Geekstrum’s Frankie, and stay for the discussion of local TV lawyers. Don’t worry, we talk about that lousy Frozen short too. We may be poco loco but at least we keep it lively! Spoilers starting around 29:00.
I have to start this review with two statements. This review will be as spoiler free as palatably possible and if you haven’t seen this movie yet, please don’t read any further. If you’re trying to decided whether or not you want to see a Star Wars movie, I don’t think my effusive fanboyish prattling is gonna be what puts you over the edge. And it is precisely the fact that my tone, critical or otherwise, might color your experience before you even park yourself in your local movie theater, that I think you should wait to read this until you’ve seen it. So, if you’ve either met this prior criteria or refuse to take advice, here’s my review of Coco again.
