The Mighty Ducks

The Mighty Ducks – S04E01

Did you miss us? Sure, we were only gone a couple months but I bet you missed us. Movies can’t fix themselves, right? Season 4 is upon us and so is, coincidentally, the hockey season. In light of that fact we dusted off an old sports classic from your childhood, The Mighty Ducks, a movie …

Justice League

Justice League – S03E13

Tell me, dear listener, do you bleed…tears of joy knowing that we’re about to fix Justice League?! We had to do something big for the season finale, DC’s biggest cinematic event to date seemed most appropriate.

Side Notes: Does Canon Matter?

Side Notes: Does Canon Matter?

When film franchises hit critical mass in popularity they often start to endlessly spawn spinoff novels, cartoons, TV series and comic books.

Side Notes: Celebrity, Social Media & Toxic Fandom

It’s been incredibly frustrating and sad to witness. …

In true I Have Some Notes we chose the most mediocre Fast film of them all, Fate of the Furious. We tear down the latest installment of Vin Diesel’s big-car-go-vroom epic to the nuts and …

Cutthroat Island

Cutthroat Island

Cutthroat Island may have been a record setting flop its director and star didn’t want to be a part of, but…I can’t think of a positive way to end this sentence. Yes, Cutthroat Island, the 90s action pirate movie high on explosions but low on “pirate-ness”. It’s the kind of painfully mediocre film made for …

Congo

Congo – S03E09

1995’s Congo may be the quintessential case of the book being better than the movie, we basically had a glossy of ready made fixes. Don’t worry, our final solution for Congo went well beyond Michael Crichton’s novel, the episode didn’t turn into a book report. Not entirely, anyway. Comedian Liam Creswick joins us for his 3rd …
