When Marnie Was There with these Nice Guys, a Preacher and their Boss!
Greetings wanderer of the audio wasteland, you look weary. Why not sit awhile, put your feet up and indulge yourself in our first foray into the world of podcasts!
Indeed, we here at We Make Movies on Weekends decided that it wasn’t enough to just make films and write about them, no!
We needed to do so much more!
And so, We Talk Movies on Podcasts was formed.
Why? I haven’t a clue, but I managed to coerce some of the other writers into joining me through a combination of threats, extortion and numerous ransoms against the safety of their family members.
But enough about me and why the voices in my head convinced me this was a smart and sensible idea. You want to know what’s awaiting you inside this cacophony of contradictions, read on and you shall find the answers that you seek!
0:33 – When Marnie Was There, Jo gives us her thoughts on what could be Studio Ghibli’s final masterpiece. We also manage to segue into raccoons with shapeshifting testicles. I think it’s safe to say highbrow is flying somewhere above our heads.
3:44 – The Nice Guys, Sarah extols the virtues of this wonderful buddy cop movie. Interestingly, despite the content matter of the film, we manage to make our way through the discussion without any references to genitalia whatsoever.
6:30 – Preacher, Sarah and Graham spend several minutes gushing over this absolutely brilliant, witty and fantastically acted TV series. If you haven’t watched it yet, you definitely should!
8:29 – The Boss, In order to counteract the praise we heaped on our previous offerings, we savage this pitifully unfunny, crass piece of dreck.
12:10 – We move on from what we’ve seen to what we’re anticipating in the coming month or so ahead. Ghostbusters features high on our list, but we’re concerned the misogynist complaints against it may smother some of the more legitimate concerns.
17:20 – Continuing our theme of reboots, Independence Day: Resurgence comes out in cinemas THIS WEEK! Will it live up to its original, or will it be another lacklustre action drama?
21:45 – To round off our hat-trick of reboots, we discuss The BFG. Despite us doubting it will ever be able to compare to the Whizzpopper Song from the 1989 version, we’re hoping that it will see Spielberg return to his filmmaking roots.
And that’s where we’ll leave you for the time being. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments as well as any questions you have!
Until next time – keep watching films!
