LILO and STITCH (with Erika Moen!): An Underrated, Progressive Classic

lilo-stitch-nani-review-podcast

Disney’s LILO and STITCH is an unheralded classic! And we’re joined by ERIKA MOEN (Oh Joy Sex Toy! DAR! Bucko!) to celebrate it!

The three of us talk about what the movie meant to our 16 year old selves, what it means to us now, and how it beautifully tells the story of outsiders building their own family. Plus, we discuss its great representation of women of color, and its respect for authentic Hawaiian culture. Also, NUCLEAR BLOOD FAMILY.

We were absolutely delighted to be joined once again by Erika, especially after an attempted Emperor’s New Groove podcast that… didn’t record. But this one DID record. So enjoy it! Erika’s the smartest and best, and if you don’t already read it, make sure you check out OhJoySexToy.com every tuesday! You can also support her stellar, sex positive cartooning on Patreon! Plus, find her collected works at ErikaMoen.com. Do all of those things – you won’t regret it.

WHIPLASH REVIEW: JK Simmons, Drumming, and the Pursuit of Greatness

whiplash-podcast

Brian and Chris discuss WHIPLASH, the 2014 jazz drumming drama about obsession, the pursuit of greatness, and what it takes to achieve real greatness. We celebrate JK Simmons’ long career, gently argue about whether or not this movie is endorsing Fletcher’s viewpoint, and break down that amazing last scene. Plus, we go DEEP on the recent Miles Teller Esquire profile! Which is hilarious! And dumb!

GARFUNKEL AND OATES: Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci get dirty, sweet, and hilarious

garfunkeloates-banner

We celebrate and mourn GARFUNKEL AND OATES, the genius IFC comedy show starring Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci! Playing fictional versions of themselves who ALSO have a hit comedy folk band, Garfunkel and Oates is a lot more than a Flight of the Conchords redux. We talk about the show’s alternatingly adorable and hilariously dirty jokes, discuss how the show focuses on the differences between Kate and Riki, and pick our favourite songs.

Plus, it’s only eight episodes! Just watch it. WATCH IT!

THEY CAME TOGETHER: Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd CRUSH Hacky Romantic Comedy Tropes

they-came-together-banner

THEY CAME TOGETHER is a rom-com satire for the ages! Directed by David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer!), and starring Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, and everyone you’ve ever really loved, this movie is a surreal look at all the tropes that make a modern romantic comedy.

We talk about the amazing genre skewering, why this alt. comedy style works for Chris where others don’t, and poke fun at all the reviewers who say it’s “too smart for its own good.” Because it’s not. It’s just smart enough for it’s own good, you bean-bags.

Next week: GARFUNKEL AND OATES!

ant-man-banner

ANT-MAN, Marvel’s latest, stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll. And we have thoughts about it! Directed by Peyton Reed (who took over for Edgar Wright), we talk about the super-capable-but-sidelined, female lead, diet Paul Rudd, and what makes this the most aggressively “okay” movie of all time.

Enjoy the show! Tell your friends! Talk to us @TTYLshow and let us know your hot Ant-Man takes!

INSIDE OUT: Pixar’s Joyful, Sad, Complex Emotional Masterpiece (feat. Amy Poehler!)

inside-out-podcast-review

INSIDE OUT, Pixar’s best movie in years, is a coming of age story that actually focuses on the importance of understanding our own feelings! Led by (Queen) Amy Poehler, the amazing cast grounds an incredibly high concept story with plenty of laughs and moments of real emotional depth. And sadness. But with an important lesson about that sadness!

In this podcast, we talk about the amazing performances, the incredibly nuanced portrayal of an 11 year old girl’s emotional landscape, and the importance of this movie as a tool for understanding the way we feel and relate to each other. At least one of us gave this one a GOOD+! Find out who, and let us know what you thought of this new animated gem.

CATASTROPHE: TV’s Surprise, Must Watch Comedy of 2015 – That Thing You Like #115

catastrophe_1web_wide-a2726b7a028a5e66e14a9d8e219cecdfde5b3913-s900-c85

CATASTROPHE is the surprise comedy hit of the summer! Starring Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, this six episode series is equal parts dirty, funny, honest, and moving. It’s like if Judd Apatow ACTUALLY wanted to say something with This is 40. But even better than that! Trust us.

We talk about being delighted by this out of nowhere comedy, laughing our ass off, the refreshing warmth of Sharon and Rob, and how excited we already are for season two. It’s available to stream on Amazon. Don’t sleep on this one! TRUST US.
