So, this should be a full ep, but because of scheduling I just talked through my taking of a personality quiz. It's a silly time. :)
I continue talking about movies that have pizzas with things on them that shouldn't be there. This time it's Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Also, what "movie-like" crazy parties have you been to? Tell me your stories at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Gillian "Gigi" Boyle and Megan Tripp discuss "Love's Last Resort" a Canadian film about a woman who has to choose between a man who's marrying someone else and her best friend's nephew played by Thomas Beaudoin AKA "Christmas Ghost." It's a funnier movie than that premise suggests, we promise.
Tim Stevens (@Ungajje) joins me to discuss "You're So Cupid," a 2010 tween rom-com about the daughters of Cupid. It's a very silly though not entirely Cupid... I mean Stupid... movie.
Megan and sister Dawn finally watched, "A Week Away" the longest commercial for a fictional camp the world has ever seen!
Come... and go with me... to... Aweegaway...come...and go with me... to see teens make some friends!
Yes, the Ryan Kane (@FBC_PapaMink) ep is 8 days late, but it is worth the wait! We discussed "Secret Obsession." After running away from an attacker Jenn is hit by a car and gets amnesia. Good thing her hubby is there 4 her, but is he all he seems? Nope! Pretty early on we figure out he isn't. We imagine this movie as an Allstate commercial, wonder why the good guys always confront the bad guys instead of just getting away from them, and discuss how the "knocking someone on the back of the head trick" is a great technique.
So, I thought "A Week Away" was coming out this week and the next ep would be about "A Week Away," so I thought we'd do a bonus ep for it.
Anyways, A Week Away is strangely enough, more than a week away. So, that'll be an April ep and this conversation has no reason for being. BUT IT'S STILL A FUN AND CRAZY EVANGELICAL RIDE BABY! We talk about our experiences in Baptist and Methodist circles spanning time from '89 to the early '00s. It's a truly weird and funny conversation!
Mary Parker joins me in watching the 1999 Lifetime Movie, "Invisible Child," about a family with a delusional mother who believes she has three children when she in fact only has two. Her husband and her elder child help with her delusion and her younger child believes in his "invisible sister." It's a tragic tale but also, strangely hilarious?
Sorry this ep is late! Tim Stevens (@ungajje) joins me to discuss the #LaceyChabert #CountdownToChristmas movie, "The Christmas Waltz." Will Russian/English dancer, Roman, sweep contracts lawyer, Avery, off her feet? I mean... probably... it's a romance. We also discuss an Etsy commercial that made me cry.
We watched On the 12th Date of Christmas. Will this surly man fall in love with this woman who LOVES corporate entertainment? Will this movie turn out to have a positive attitude towards a woman living in the big city and following her big career dreams? Will we figure out the clues to discover Chicago's hidden gems? Join @TimHulsizer and me to see if we can figure out all the clues!
So, recording on Zoom worked, but the audio qualify isn't perfect, but both Katie Knight, friend of the podcast and myself are completely understandable as we discuss Deranged Granny a Lifetime movie. You really don't want to eat the Granny's sinister baked goods, but go ahead and eat a burger around a man who's puking his guts out, why don't ya?
Jacob Haller of Love YA Like Crazy joins me to talk about Abducted: Fugitive of Love. A movie with more clever twists than it has to have and more nudity than expected, and we propose a TV-show spinoff "STAT!" about the a couple of minor characters.
Darren Husted (@darrenhusted) of a billion podcasts including The Social Minute (@social_minute) joins me to discuss Lifetime "thriller" Boyfriend's Deceit. Wigs and blueprint storage tubes galore in this episode. (BTW, when I mentioned my sister said that the only reason someone would date an architect is to gain access to office supplies, she was only kidding.)
I'm creating another podcast, "While You were 'Casting" a fan-cast about While You were Sleeping one DVD chapter per episode, one episode per week. Hope you join in all the fun at NABM Patreon Page!
comicsverse.com and marvel.com contributor Tim Stevens (@UnGajje) comes back for another Netflix Original movie, Velvet Buzzsaw. We try to figure out if this is a horror, slasher, or satire movie, and fail to come up with an answer.
By the way, this is the Atlantic article we reference in the episode.
John McCoy of Sophomore Lit guests joins me in discussing a thriller with all the chills of real estate, and all the levity of grotesque violence. In this episode we try to decide whether the nudity was tasteful (spoiler, it's not); if the movie understands what Alzheimer's is (spoiler, it doesn't); and whether or not the movie has haunted milk (it might). Join us before Florida is a nuclear wasteland, won't you?
Katie and Megan tackle the Lifetime Original Movie, A Student's Obsession about a boy who falls for his bio teacher, and won't let go when she doesn't want a relationship. We go over, "wait what's next?" quite a bit, like in a tangent I've (Megan) cut, so if I seem a little overly exasperated by the timing of the poisoning, please excuse. Also, I like a moron claim that Patreon.com is spelled p-a-y-t-r-e-o-n, rather than Patreon (no y).
A woman whose ex-husband is killed in her home. The main character evades police and figures out whodunit in this mystery-comedy. Megan and Kathleen/Kathy/Kates discuss this movie and why you should visit Florida. Also, Megan announces the opening of https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3435567. Our patreon acct.
College students, garbage floating in the ocean, and a giant shark that mutates to have 3 heads. What could be better? Literally nothing. Kathleen and I enjoy this a lot more than any other movie we've seen for the podcast. Watch it and listen to this!
Dawn and Megan take on a 2014 Hallmark Channel Original, "Ring by Spring." The premise? A woman hears from a fortune teller that either she will "get a ring by spring" or never get a ring then her boyfriend breaks up with her, so she tries to figure out why no one wants to marry her and falls in like with business consultant client. Tangents include me almost beginning to sing "Take on Me," us coming up with a theme song for the fortune teller that's eerily reminiscent of a Duckburg-related show's theme, the recruiting slogan for the US Army, and Dawn pining for a life of travel or at least moving to Canada if nothing else.
Megan and Kathleen (yes Kathleen is back woot!), take on a Lifetime Christmas movie called Holly Holiday. This is a movie where a mannequin comes to life (or does he?) and romances a young ad exec in an annoying fashion so that she can realize love isn't "perfect" and she can pursue her co-worker who ain't perfect but loves her. Oh, and we talk about commercials because they were just as, if not more, interesting than this movie.
In this episode Katie (from the Appetite for Love episode) returns and talks with Megan about Christmasland. They do their best to summarize the rather boring 2015 holiday movie. Hopefully, our non-linear representation gives this episode a liveliness that this movie so terribly lacked (in other words we don't talk about the plot in any sort of order). Also, we're tired it's a Monday give us a break!
Dawn and Megan discuss a one of those, I'm-planning-to-marry-you-but-fall-out-of-love-with-you-before-we-can-get-married movies. It uses a lot of tropes from other such movies, and is a middling film. We also address the hard-hitting issue of donut walls versus chocolate fountains at weddings. By the way thank you if you voted in our poll about donut wall versus chocolate fountains. The winner: Chocolate fountain!
