Episode 53 - The Great Theater Debate!

With this episode we started out thinking it would be a general conversation about how the current situation our world is in, how would the movie theater business be effected. Well, this got a bit out of control as some were very passionate about their opinions. It became very interesting to say the least. With studios releasing movies directly to rent via streaming services, new release dates being moved around daily and the current lack of customers, how do you think theaters will come out on the other end? The theater industry has fired the first show declaring they will initially ban any movie from studios using the direct release model instead of waiting for theaters to open back up first.

Episode 52 - Sean Kanan (Bad Boy Mike Barnes)

Another fantastic remote interview!  A few blips in the audio, sorry about that.  Still working out the kinks of these remote interviews. Today we talk with an incredibly cool guy by the name of Sean Kanan.  Best known (to us) for his role as "Bad Boy" Mike Barnes from Karate Kid III, Sean has many acting accolades to his name rising to stardom with recurring roles on daytime soap operas such as The Young and the Restless, General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful. We bring all of it into the discussion including his new project on Amazon Prime, Studio City, which is hilarious and a fantastic concept.  Plus we throw out a curveball or two about a pilot he was in, tee hee.

Episode 46 - Summer Blockbuster Movie Results!

And the winner, by many miles, is Micah! This week we are talking about our wager we had last year with all the summer blockbuster movies. We all went in on what we thought each movie would gross at the box office and how they would rank in the end. We all picked the obvious #1 which was Avengers Endgame, however, it broke down heavily for most of us after that. Micah was the lone survivor and because of that, he gets to pick a movie that the group HAS to watch no matter what! This may be bad, we'll let you know. Along with this we discuss all the movies and what surprised us and what didn't. What we liked and didn't. So, listen in and join the conversation on social media.

Their musicianship is next level incredible and their harmonies are off the charts.  They are even Grammy Award finalists!!  If you've never heard this band you owe it to yourselves to see them as soon as possible.  We get a real treat at the end where they play a short set for us and it is incredible.  Just don't be quick to judge based on our sound, being a podcast we are not necessarily equipped to record full bands.  Please take our word for it, they are amazing and if you are a fan of Beatle music, what are you waiting for.  Check out their website at the bottom and see when and where they will be performing next. Thank you all for listening and we love you all! Stay eclectic everybody!

Episode 33 - Small Roles, Big Impact! An Interview With Femi Taylor

Oola was a green-skinned Twi'lek slave forced to dance for Jabba The Hut.  We meet her in the Star Wars cinematic universe in Episode VI - Return of the Jedi where she was portrayed by Femi Taylor.  Today we are joined by Ms. Taylor for a quick interview.  This was a great honor for us.  Femi was an absolute delight to talk with and we are all onboard to bring Oola back, perhaps in an origin story!.  After the interview we dive in to Matt's world and discuss film and TV roles that were small but had a huge impact on the over all story and some that have taken on a life outside the movies, creating special fandoms and cosplay fun.  Join in on the conversation and tell us some small roles or character we missed that impacted the story they were a part of.  Thank you all for listening and as always, we love you all!
