It’s been a while! Join us for a discussion of The Meg, bad shark movies, good shark movies, and what makes a good “fun” movie as opposed to a lame one.

The 14 year wait is over! So… what did we think of Incredibles 2 after all this time waiting for it? It’s complicated. In our lengthy discussion, we debate the merits and problems of the long-awaited Pixar sequel.
Incredibles 2 Written & Directed: Brad Bird Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Helen Hunt, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk, and Catherine Keener Music: Michael Giacchino Cinematography: Mahyar Abousaeedi Studio: Pixar Animation Studios
Sometimes we talk about TV instead of movies. Well, this is the first time we’ve done that, actually.
Broadchurch is a British crime drama series set in a small town in England. After a local boy is killed, a murder investigation tears apart the titular hamlet of Broadchurch.
We cover Series 1 of 3 on this episode of the podcast. The first half of the episode gives our glowing general impressions while the second half descends into spoiler territory. It’s a really, really strong series and it’s well worth watching so we highly recommend not listening to the second half of the podcast if you haven’t watched the entirety of Series 1.
We’ve seen Incredibles 2 and that should be our next episode.
Guess what? We talk about old movies too. “Old” in the case meaning from 2004, a fact which I got wrong on the podcast but my wife helpfully corrected. I still can’t believe I got that wrong.
Incredibles 2 is right around the corner so now is the perfect time to revist one of Pixar’s best movies.
The Incredibles Written & Directed: Brad Bird Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Helen Hunt, Jason Lee, and Samuel L. Jackson Music: Michael Giacchino Cinematography: Andrew Jimenez, Patrick Lin, Janet Lucroy Studio: Pixar Animation Studios
Surprise! We didn’t think we were going to cover this movie, but here we are. The latest and biggest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe broke all kinds of records, but most shockingly we both liked it a lot.
