#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!

#156 – Upstream Color

"It doesn't make you a genius, it makes you arrogant."

We kick off a new Movie-Go-Round cycle with Nicole's New to Two pick, Upstream Color. This head-scratcher seems to be about identity, interconnectedness, addiction, memory, trauma bonding, and...pigs? What did Brett and David think? Could any of us make sense of it? How was Amy Seimetz? And why do we have to keep playing the "Can we separate the art from the artist" game?

#155 – mother!

"The metaphor is just bungled all the way through."

For this round's You Did This to Us, we brought in a ringer, Cole Roulain of The Magic Lantern podcast, to help us make sense of the controversial, polarizing mother! Listen to Brett try to keep this train on the conversational tracks while Cole makes cogent points, David works himself into rage sputtering, and Nicole tries to puzzle out the nightmare logic while wondering about the importance of the decor.
