Join Jennifer and Kaylia for a rousing discussion where we debate the following: the okay-ness of the pseudo nudity of Tom Holland, the casting of a black actor as a villain, whether the lack of talking animals in the movie was a travesty or a smart choice, and if the “secret of manhood twist” was a plot hole or layered writing on Ness’ part. Plus Kaylia admits to lying to her daughter about the end of The Call of The Wild. Sorry, Ella!
Join Kaylia and Matthew for a deepish dive into The Big Sleep. They talk mystery vs noir vs detective genres, and how a depressing man against the world taking solace in his booze turned into a screwball rom-com less worried about the plot and more interested in showcasing a romantic happy ending story for its stars. Plus, Star Trek trivia, the sexy bookseller, a few notes about epilepsy vs mental illness, and an extensive amount of title-name dropping. Enjoy!
