Matt, Drew and Amanda discuss the history of fantasy as a literary and film genre. Don’t worry, we skip over and gloss over plenty of stuff!
Matt, Drew and Amanda prove what horrible human beings they are by viciously mocking speech impediments in 1998’s MERLIN! Hot Topic is the world of magic! Uther Pendragon is a Martian! Hank Hill should have been Merlin! Gnomes shoot blanks, this is common knowledge!
Matt, Drew and Amanda discover that reading is FUNdamental with 1994’s THE PAGEMASTER! Inexplicable WGA disputes! Macauly Culkin’s huge, forever-chapped lips! Leaky dinghies need to be plugged! You never see flashing neon exit signs in valleys!
Matt, Drew and Amanda watch an adorable, but creepy, simplistic, but surreal animated film, 1991’s THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN! Grandparents don’t exist! Cartoon villains want to do nasty things to little boys! Woefully ineffectual princesses! Froglip Stardust And The Spider-Legs From Mars!
Matt, Drew and Amanda try something new for Thanksgiving and provide running commentary on 1978’s LORD OF THE RINGS! To get the most out of this, you should watch the movie along with us…it won’t really make a lick of sense otherwise. Don’t worry, we explain how to synchronize us and the movie in the beginning of the commentary.
Matt and Drew are joined by their friend, Griffin, for a discussion of the brand-new-currently-in-theaters-stop-motion-samurai-spectacle, KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS.
BTW, the instrument is a shamisen.
