The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises – S04E14

Yup, we’re criticizing another DC movie in The Dark Knight Rises. If at this point you feel like we’re just picking on DC film it would be hard for me to disagree, because we’re even rewriting the good ones now. So…fine, we’re DC haters and Marvel fanboys. You caught us. It’s also somehow our second …

The Net

The Net – S04E12

In 1995 the internet was a new, fledgling technology and baby boomer screenwriters were super scared of it. They imagined a world in which all your information is stored online by a giant, nefarious software company who can use your data against you. Crazy boomers, so paranoid. In 1995 the internet was a new, fledgling …

Interstellar

Interstellar – S04E10

Christopher Nolan may be the most prolific and successful blockbuster filmmaker of our generation, so naturally we felt the need to pick apart one of his movies.

Star Trek: Insurrection

Star Trek: Insurrection – S04E08

Once a year we look to the stars for another Star Trek movie to fix, and this year it is Star Trek: Insurrection’s turn. Admiral Beever, Captain Bourgeois and Acting Ensign Colin MacIntyre lock and load for a battle with sci-fi mediocrity. We keep picking on Next Generation movies, for good reason, they aren’t great. …

Barbarella

Barbarella – S04E06

Ah, sci-fi in the sixties, sexually liberated, costumes changes abound, and not a single plot thread connected to another. It’s hard to fathom why things ever changed, today’s “modern” sci-fi is so fixated on being “coherent” and “understood.” Pssshah! I say. Danica LeBlanc, Anita Bourgeois and Erin Beever are back to break down the psychedelic …

Jingle All the Way

Jingle All the Way – S04E04

We don’t like to assign blame around here, but this episode is all your fault. We could’ve watching Home Alone: 2, or Paul Giamatti in Fred Claus but no, you made us watch Jingle All the Way. The only thing jingling were our pain receptors. But, being the consummate professionals we are, we made our …
