Being on the cusp of a pretty big summer release in the form of Wonder Woman - Carrie's most anticipated movies of the summer, as you might recall - we're celebrating history's most famous female superhero making her big-screen solo debut by discussing a very different kind of strong woman role model with the our top five businesswomen. As for what exactly makes a great movie businesswoman, that's going to be a matter of some debate.
Carrie shares a gem in the Worth Mentioning segment with What If while Rob bring Denial to the table.
One-third of the Alternate Ending cohort had never seen any of the movies in everybody's favorite sci-fi//horror/action saga, the Alien series. To rectify that terrible oversight, and also to help all the rest of us get ready for the impending release of Alien: Covenant, we take a closer look at all the films in the classic run of the franchise: Alien (1979), Aliens (1986) Alien³ (1992), Alien Resurrection (1997), Prometheus (2012), and Alien Covenant (2017) with our Spoiler Alert: The Alien Movies episode.
Who's the real master of the xenomorphs, Ridley Scott or James Cameron? Just how damn great is Sigourney Weaver in these films, anyway? How do we feel about the genre-hopping across these movies? Is Resurrection really THAT bad?
In celebration of Mother’s Day, the crew discusses their picks for Top 5 Moms. And while perspectives on what qualifies as a great Mom movie are drastically different, they all share the common thread, that there is in fact a Mom…in the movie. You be the judge on whose Mommy issues shine through the brightest.
Additional coverage includes Carrie’s education on the proper way to consume a Zima and Rob shows off his opera pipes, to the dismay of pretty much everyone. We would be remiss to not call out our movies worth mentioning this week. Carrie continued her quest to watch every Tom Hanks movie ever made with, A Hologram for the King. Tim picks up a romantic little flick, TiMER, for which both Rob and Carrie can commiserate. And Rob, pulls it in with a the in-theater review of Colossal.
What happened to Carrie and what did it have to do with the Kentucky Derby?!
This week, a very special double-feature episode of Spoiler Alert. To celebrate the recent DVD & Blu-ray release of La La Land, Tim and Rob take a second look at the Oscar-winning crowd pleaser, our collective pick for the best film of 2016. But at Tim's insistence, we're also going to take a look at one of the films that most directly influenced Damien Chazelle in concocting his film: the 1964 French masterpiece The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, the best-known film by the great Jacques Demy.
In worth mentioning, Tim and Rob both had a chance to take-in Rob's #1 most anticipated movie of the Summer Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
The summer movie season is upon us and so is our Top 5 Anticipated Summer Movies 2017 episode. Starting this season off is Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 and we can't wait to see what the highlights (and bombs) of popcorn cinema are going to be. What's going to be the best and biggest movie of the next four months - Christopher Nolan's WWII epic Dunkirk? The third in the surprisingly successful Planet of the Apes prequel franchise? Or will all comers have to settle for second place behind the mighty power of The Emoji Movie?
In worth mentioning, Tim actually watches a movie with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015), while Carrie barely cracks Texas Heart (2016) and Rob shares what should be a summer movie with Fate of the Furious (2017).
