    2010 to 2020 – TPToA Podcast 148

    2010 to 2020 – TPToA Podcast 148

    It's been a MASSIVE decade of entertainment that has seen the nature of media shift from external outings to home delivered experiences. With almost 100,000 films made since 2010 alone, it's impossible to pick just a few to talk about, to say nothing of TV and extended media content.

    Quinny, Dion, Jill and Peta take a look back at the decade that was 2010 to 2020, and then try to predict what our changing media landscape has in store for us!

    2020 is the year we want to hear from YOU! We want to hear your opinions on what we've reviewed; did we get it right, or wrong?

    TPToA Presents – DC (Drunk Cinema) – Aquaman

    TPToA Presents – DC (Drunk Cinema) – Aquaman

    It's 2020 friends and that means it's time for something a bit different! In this podcast we're experimenting with DC or "Drunk Cinema" as we sit down with Jill to make her endur… experience, the glory that is the Jason Momoa action-adventure vehicle; 'Aquaman'. We didn't have the benefit of alcohol for the first review, so this time around we discover whether it does actually make the film better, or failing that; how many drinks it takes to enjoy yourself.

    Join Dion and Bec as they "help" Jill get to the bottom of the sea with DC - Aquaman!

    *TPToA promotes the responsibly consumption of alcohol when it indeed proves beneficial to enjoying a film. No children or animals were harmed in this podcast recording, but a few brain cells didn't make it.

    JoJo Rabbit – TPToA Podcast 146

    JoJo Rabbit – TPToA Podcast 146

    Taika Waititi is the hottest thing in Hollywood at the moment and its wonderful to see someone who has the spotlight on them so brightly, still creating such challenging and wonderful art. This film is stylistically a bit more in line with 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' than 'Thor: Ragnarok', but it has an amazing A-list cast and a lot to say about the human condition.

    Ahead of its release on Boxing Day here in Australia, Dion and Quinny march dutifully into this special Christmas/Chanukah podcast about a small film that wears its heart on it's sleeve, along with a swastika.

    Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.

This is a podcast I can never say no to. Always funny and informative, I’m even listening to episodes about things I have no intention of watching 🙂 I look forward to every episode released.
