#150 – The Twilight Saga: New Moon

"I guess he just found an angst bachelor pad in Brazil."

Welcome to the 150th episode of Movie-Go-Round! Normally any multiple of five would be a "You Did This to Us" episode, but since you voted for Twilight for our 100th, we figured we'd just carry the spirit of that forward. Brace yourself, and come join Brett, David, and Nicole in our discussion of the hellbound handbasket that is The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

#149 – Shin Godzilla

"It's a giant mutant chicken possum with gills."

It was Brett's turn to choose our "Around the World" Movie-Go-Round film, and he chose 2016's Shin Godzilla (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence). For a movie with a strong comedic bent in the first act, we dig surprisingly deep into cultural fears, Japanese-U.S. relations, and origin conspiracy theories. Come listen as David dotes on Kamata-kun, Nicole tries to describe Godzilla's roar using her junior-high-level music vocabulary, and we all give respect to the Nerd Task Force.

Next up will be our 150th regular episode, a "You Did This to Us" entry, and we will be watching the second movie in the Twilight series, New Moon. Woof.

#148 – Howl's Moving Castle

A future classic of especially high caliber.

Enter another Geek Cinema Society rewind episode as we catch ourselves up here for 2022! In this episode, we watched Howl's Moving Castle, a film that if we did it on Movie-Go-Round, would surely be classified as a Future Classic.

Our guest at the time was Norman Benford of Back to the Future: The Podcast.

Next episode we return with Around the World, a Brett pick: Shin Godzilla.

#147 – Mortal Kombat (1995)

A movie so bad we're somehow releasing this episode twice to shame it.

In this Netflix Roulette episode of Movie-Go-Round, we were going to discuss Llamageddon. Yes, that's exactly how it sounds. Go watch it if you dare. But life got in the way - see the first minute of the show. So, we're taking a wonderful trip down memory lane to watch something that's far worse with 100x the budget: 1995's Mortal Kombat.

This travesty of a film was originally viewed for our last film podcast, Geek Cinema Society. This week, we're dropping two flashbacks into your feed. For the next episode, and what would have been a Nicole Future Classics pick, you'll hear our 2017 discussion of Howl's Moving Castle.

We appreciate your understanding and hope you had a spectacular and safe holiday and New Years. After Howl's, we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming!

It's a Wonderful Life

"You can see the lust lines passing back and forth between them."

Happy holidays, Movie-Go-Round followers! For our first holiday episode, this movie seemed like the only possible choice. Listen as Nicole, Brett, and special guest Phil Rood of The Picture Show with Austin and Phil Rood deconstruct this holiday staple. Is this an accurate portrayal of small-town life? Can one man make such a big difference in so many people's lives? Is this a "Christian movie"? Why do we have all these kids?

#146 – Repo! The Genetic Opera

"You can hate this, but it demands a reaction."

For this week’s Movie-Go-Round New to Two, David introduced Brett and Nicole to Repo! The Genetic Opera. “Bizarre” is a term that came up often in the discussion, as well as “gusto,” “heightened,” “rubbery organs,” and the phrase “This broke me” (primarily from Brett). Is this one to watch with Grandma? Take a listen and find out!
