My Gal Sunday is less "Taken" and more "Taken...at your leisure." Leigh Anthony Jones of @FilmClubFaceOff podcast joins me on this wild ride of a movie based on a Mary Higgins Clark book.
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.
Just putting out some really old episodes from Soundcloud onto the main feed. This episode my sister Kathleen and I talked about a Hallmark movie. It was the first one we ever recorded. :)
Emily Aguila and I watched The Sweetest Heart, the blandest of bakery-themed romance #hallmark ever thought up!
Movie asks: What's better for girls to play other than "bride"?
We answer: literally anything. Emily's podcasts are The World of Tomorrow and Goin' Cast, and her twitter handle is @EmilyWatches.
The second-to-last of the episodes I recorded in 7/18 is released today! Chris and I talk about "The Beastly Beauty." The twist is that she's a beauty that behaves in a "beastly" way. Get it? Neither does @ChrisFGambino, and neither do I. But we learn flannel is un-sexy, and paprika is unmanly, so thank goodness for this movie, I guess. ;)

I was joined by old friends @TraceMcJoy and @SeccaBimmons for Christmas quizzes and a rundown of the movie, "Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe" which has little to do with the book of the same name which in turn has nothing to do with Austen's novel. Who is crown Christmas champion? Listen to find out!
John Ryan and I talk about Lifetime movie "Babysitter's Nightmare" which is a thriller?/slasher? film in which the main character runs away from a killer. And I give us both the stupidest nicknames ever given to anyone in podcasting history. What are they? You'll have to listen to find out!
Oh and special announcement: I was on Ross Weisman's show (Kid Flix) talking about VeggieTales recently. You can find his show on Apple Podcasts.
Ross Weisman (@misterweisman) of the Kid Flix podcast (@kidflixpod) joins me to talk about #DCOM "Girl vs Monster," a fun movie about facing your fears with a muddled view of monsters and poor world-building and auto-tuned original music! Happy #halloween, witches! #disneychannel
Steve Guntli (@ultra64podcast) and I watch #NetflixOriginal When We First Met. Will we fall in love with this story of "friendzoned" loser in his magical journey of being Groundhog Day'd over and over again? No. At least we have fun talking about this offensive, stupid movie. :)
Check out Steve Guntli's podcast, Ultra 64 Podcast.
Time to go back to school as Daniel Cohn (@denialcohn) and I discuss the most watched television movie of 1994, Death of a Cheerleader with Tori Spelling and Kelli Martin! We discuss friendly kidnappings and vegetable snacking, oh and murder of course! Also, I recorded this first thing in the morning don't @ me about CA's topography.
Attention Finns! Your boy, Miikka Mononen (@VierasTalo) of online mag, laajakuva.com is on with me this ep discussing the "Deadly" Dance Mom's strategy of only taking out one of her kid's dance competition and how that may not have been the best strategy to having her child win said dance competition.
Gigi Boyle and I swoon over Thomas Baeudoin the actor who plays ghost Daniel in The Spirit of Christmas in Christmas in July Part 1. We re-name main character Kate "Angela" for no apparent reason, and don't even bother with names for anyone else but Lily, the ghost's former love from the 1860s. 1910s? Who knows? We certainly don't. :p Why does a ghost have a body? We don't know that either, but we are not complaining!
Sarah Ifft Decker (@sarahifftdecker) joins me for the romance, Love at the Christmas Table, about two kids who see each other at an annual Xmas party for 24 yrs. A tedious and absurd premise at best, a horror film at worst. Sarah also teases her podcast, Media-Eval which is going to be released sometime soon.
My college friend Chelsie Berios and I talk about a Hallmark movie, Dear Dumb Diary. Is this a fun movie about boys, embarrassment, and embracing your inner awesome? Or is it a musical trainwreck that over-sexualizes meatloaf? Give this episode a listen to find out.
Ollie Brady @ollieandemily of Best Acquaintances joins me to discuss Tulips in Spring. We discuss the royals for no apparent reason and Sade's Kissed by a Rose on the Grave. It's much more fun than actually talking about the very dull very unromantic movie about a lady who tries to decide between interior design and farming and between current boyfriend and hot flower broker.
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?
This movie scored 0 in goofiness (jester hats this time), and barely got any stars. Fortunately, the very charming Becca Simmons joined me to talk through the April Fool's Day themed movie, and she's always a delight.
Tim Stevens joins me in discussing the Netflix Original, "You Get Me," an erotic thriller type movie where a girl gets dangerously obsessed with a guy who thought it was all just a one-night/one-day stand. You can follow Tim on Twitter (@ungajje). Or read his stuff here:
Megan and Hotep Anthony of the Just God Just podcast discuss the Netflix original movie, A Christmas Prince. Just how hott is this really boring prince, just how senile was the prince's father before he died, and just how thoughtless is the main character who falls in love with the prince? Find out in this episode!
Megan and Kathleen (she's back) watch a Lifetime movie again on the theme of HGTV. This time a sexy contractor turns out to be dangerous. Kathleen finds plaid scary. Megan finds wallpaper scary, but the real fear comes from how rote the ending of this movie is. Still it's a pretty fun sexy time! (Does she mean the movie or her podcast? The world may never know)
Dawn and Megan discuss a Lifetime Original Thriller, Tiny House of Terror, a story about a woman who deals with her husband going missing, moving into a tiny house, someone stealing her things, an infestation of spiders, and eventually almost getting killed. Also, a spooky magnetic VORTEX which is completely unnecessary for the plot.
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!
