#162 – Pleasantville

"This reminds me of Frasier."

In this Can We Just Talk About? David brings the 1998 film 'Pleasantville.' Brett, David, and Nicole discuss why this film is a perennial classroom favorite, whether or not Brett understands the plot of 'Click', and, of course, Don Knotts' voice. Pleasantville wears its message on its sleeve - how does that fare all these years later? Also, the crew gets sidetracked... a lot.

#161 – Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes

"What if Primer, but comedy?"

The cycle begins again with Brett's New to Two pick, a time-hoppy microbudget movie from Japan called Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes. It plays with time, staircases, expectations, and monitor cables. We discussed its single-take conceit, the inherent paradoxes, peer pressure, K-dramas, and how smart people with glasses are (pushes frames up nose), among other things. Did David and Nicole enjoy it? Tune in and find out!

#160 – The Beastmaster

"We didn't need ten minutes of him meeting the ferrets."

For this Movie-Go-Round You Did This to Us pick, you all chose The Beastmaster. I hope you're happy. We discussed the tale of Dar and his animal friends Todo, Kodo, Podo, Shouty Bird, and Tigger. Also Dar's skeevy tendencies, his quest for revenge, glowy Nyquil magic, Rip Torn making a house payment, and the unnerving bat-winged people who just want a hug. A melty, melty hug.

#159 – Summer Wars (Soma Wozu)

"You can't roll with 'I'm just following orders' anymore."

For this week's Around the World, we talked about Momoru Hosoda's 2009 animated film, Summer Wars (Soma Wozu). David brought it to the panel -- what's so special about it...and familiar? Is it possible for a director to plagiarize his own work? Is it possible for a massively popular novel and very expensive movie version to also rip off that same work? Did Brett and Nicole like it anyway? We discuss our real opinions of this virtual world on this episode.

The side-by-side comparison of Summer Wars and the Second Digimon Movie: Bokura no War Game (2000) can be found at Actar's Otaku Life, The Plagiarism of Summer Wars? You can read more about eWorld at Remembering eWorld, Apple's forgotten online service.

Next episode's You Did This to Us will be 1982's The Beastmaster.

#158 – The Suicide Squad (2021)

"I always want more Flula."

For this Movie-Go-Round Future Classic, Brett nominated 2021's The Suicide Squad. We had a lot to say about the acting, the gleeful gore, the early exits of some of the characters, and the anthropomorphic shark. Did David and Nicole agree that this will become a classic of the modern age of superhero movies? We had a good time trying to figure that out! Come have a listen.

#157 – Pacific Rim

"Mon Mothra...is that a Zelda boss?"

Welcome to our new theme, called "Can We Just Talk About...?" Brett, David, and Nicole each came up with 10 movies that they were desperate to talk about but that didn't fit the other categories, and we used a random draw tool to choose a movie from that pool. This round, Nicole was the lucky winner and we got to talk about Pacific Rim! Giant mechas punch giant monsters! Woot!
