What’s Up #8 & October Plans & Suggestions?

Its time for the next What’s Up. I might start taking out the number versions soon and just keep it with themes of the video or something, if I can figure it out.

Either way, this week’s is a tad long. There’s some tangents and a lot of editing to even get this length. Apparently, I like to ramble A LOT. If you hold on to the end, one of them is talking about October plans for the Halloween marathon this year.

Without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to the past week or so (a bit before also). Things get back to actually weekly stuff next week.

Thanks for watching!

After Hours #3 – Sucker Punch

Season 2 is right around the corner for Movies and Tea! However, we have Elwood’s After Hours pick to talk about: his pick is one that I’ve heard both love and hate for, its Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch! Going into the rewatch, we represent both sides with myself being in the hating it after my first viewing a few years ago. You’ll see whether the second viewing changes my mind, even just a littler.

Head over to Movies and Tea to check out the episode! Hope you enjoy!

Movies and Tea

Elwood and Kim take another look at Zack Snyder’s highly diversive “Sucker Punch” a film which has gone on to garner an impressive cult following since it’s release but is it all flair and no substance? Join us in the booth as we dive into this genre jumping world to find out if audiences were too quick to dismiss Snyder’s “Alice in Wonderland with Machine Guns”

Come join us in the booth!!

After Hours #2 – In Your Eyes

Movies and Tea

Join us for another After Hours special as this time Kim picks out this Joss Wheldon scripted romance with a twist “In Your Eyes” to discuss in which two strangers Rebecca (Zoe Kazan) and Dylan (Michael Stahl-David) discover they share a psychic connection which enables them to see and experience the world through each others bodies.

Opinion Battles Year 4 Round 8 – Favourite Film From 2017

This year’s Round 8 of Opinions Battles is here and we are looking at our favorite film of 2017. Granted I still have a ton of movies to watch to at least feel like I caught up a lot of movies chosen here I did see and a few of them even were considered. Ultimately, I chose Kong: Skull Island because it had a great balance of everything. It wasn’t Oscar-nominated or anything but I never care about that sort of thing. Head on over to check out some other great choices and remember to vote in the poll for the choice you agreed with the most.

The Shape of Water

 

The Shape of Water is one film that struck home perfectly, it showed how loneliness can be difficult to get through and finding hope in the most different person can turn the life around. We have beautifully shot movie with stunning performance and it did go onto to win Best Picture at the…

Movies and Tea #8 – The Three Musketeers

Its time for the next episode of Movies and Tea. Its the penultimate movie to our Paul W.S. Anderson focus this season: The Three Musketeers! Head on over to check out the show! Tell us if you’ve seen this adaptation and whether you like it.

Be sure to follow Movies and Tea to not miss out on our individual reviews of each of the movies and other fun content as well as the podcasts. We have something special planned once we wrap up the last movie of Paul W.S. Anderson (for now), Pompeii for this season.

Movies and Tea

Compared to the other films in his filmography his “clock-punk” reimaginging of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel marked a noteable changeable of pace for Paul W.S. Anderson.

Critically panned on its release we take another look at the film to find out if the critics were too quick to judge what is arguable one of the more original adaptations of the popular tale. So come join us in the booth.

Drew's Movie Reviews

Hello, friends!

Many of you should know my next Christmas in July Blogathon participant, especially if you followed my blog in the earlier months of the year during the Ultimate Decades blogathons. And if you didn’t, I’m sure you’ve seen her around. She has a life blog where she blogs about movies, books, cooking, her travels, and a multitude of other things and a photography blog called Avenue of Daydreams. She also co-hosts several podcasts, including Game Warp and Movies and Tea. I am talking about Kim from Tranquil Dreams, of course! Kim is involved with so much. I have no idea how she manages it all and stay sane! One of the things I like about this blogathon is how varied the entries are and Kim always offers some of the most unique each year. For this year, she brings us her favorite scenes involving Christmas…

Movies and Tea #7 – Death Race

Continuing the Movies and Tea Podcast with my fantastic co-host Elwood Jones as we look the next film in Paul W.S. Anderson directing effort, Death Race! Packed with some Jason Statham action, Tyrese Gibson and of course, deadly races as well as a villainous role by Joan Allen. We look at all of that and what makes it one of the great and underrated films in Paul W. S. Anderson’s filmography.

Head over and check out our episode. Share your thoughts on Death Race!

Movies and Tea

Having spent years languishing in development hell Paul W.S. Anderson finally brought the remake of the cult favourite “Death Race 2000” to the screen in what he envisioned as a prequel to the original film.

But with Anderson choosing to reimagine than create a straight remake for many fans of the original this film failed to even get off the starting grid and on this episode we question if perhaps they were right to judge the film so quickly.

We also look at truck flips, the joy of vehicular carnage aswell as if this was Anderson’s last great movie and much more!

So come join us in the booth!!
