    Grail Diary Chapter 9 - THX 1138

    Grail Diary Chapter 9 - THX 1138

    We jump right into the first film by George Lucas, the dystopian flick called THX 1138. If we had a choice--and we didn't--we'd of watched something else, but the good news is, we watched it so you don't have to! The movie is about two people living in a repressive, underground and medicated society and what happens when they--gasp--stop taking their meds! (If you do actually want to watch this movie, you may need some meds to stay awake.) Turn on your holograms, and let's Get To The Good Part!

    This episode was originally published as a Chapter 29 bonus episode on October 10, 2018 to our Patreon campaign. If it's been a while since you listened to our breakdown of Chapter 29, give it a listen! Listen on Apple Podcasts or Anchor.

    Grail Diary Chapter 8 - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Act 3)

    It may have taken us a year to get here, but we can finally wrap up our three-part review of "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," and talk about some of the parallels with "Ready Player One." Don't worry, we are still picking thematic drinks for each Ex, and we threw in a few bonus drinks while we're at it. Grab your gin and tonic, Coke Zero, or whatever wets your whistle, and let's Get To The Good Part!

    Grail Diary Chapter 8 - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Act 2)

    Grail Diary Chapter 8 - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Act 2)

    We had so much to say about "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," we had to do this episode in multiple parts! It's time to deal with the dirty business of breaking up with Knives, and outsmarting (and outfighting) more of Ramona's evil exes. Get your hair dye ready, grab your favorite Deadly Ex themed drink, and let's Get To The Good Part!

    Grail Diary Chapter 8 - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Act 1)

    Grail Diary Chapter 8 - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Act 1)

    Just over a year ago, we decided to record a bonus episode about the movie "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World." Obviously, we never got around to posting it, but better late than never. If there were ever a non-1980s movie that deserves to be included in Parzival's Grail Diary, this is it! Join us for this in-depth review of a movie that ranks at the top of both of our lists of favorite movies. One might say, we are in lesbians with this movie. We have 7 Deadly Exes to go through, and to numb the pain we are having a special drink for each Evil Ex! This could get interesting. It's time to dress up like a pirate,  grab a board to do a grindy thingy, and Get To The Good Part!

    Grail Diary Chapter 7 - The Breakfast Club

    Grail Diary Chapter 7 - The Breakfast Club

    Can you believe that Chris has never watched The Breakfast Club? I know, right? Can you think of something better to do on a Saturday? We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a little time to watch this movie. We knew it was the right thing to do. But we think you're crazy if you didn't expect us to record a podcast about it. Did you ever doubt us? You see us as you want to see us... in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. You see us as gunters. Does that answer your question? Grab your very nutritious lunch, with all the food groups represented, and let's Get To The Good Part!

    Grail Diary Chapter 6 - Ghostbusters Afterlife Trailer

    Grail Diary Chapter 6 - Ghostbusters Afterlife Trailer

    We are dusting off the proton packs, pulling the tarp off the ECTO-1, and looking a little deeper into the trailer to come up with our guesses as to how the story might unfold, how the gang might come back together, and how we might explain some of the things happening at old man Egon's place. Not your average trailer review, strap on your brain scanning colanders and get ready to Get To The Good Part!

Glad I found it

I listened to RPO at work, picked it because nothing else was available. Wow what a game changer. I bought the hardcover and have been reading chapter by chapter and listening to each chapter’s podcast(s). I love the extra perspectives from everyone.

They tend to go off on sidetracks from time to time, just a book discussion turns into a joke turns into a long side discussion, but other than that I’ve loved everything.

It’s funny listening to the early podcasts when the guys go off on a tangent about the then-upcoming movie, oh what high hopes they had.

Excited to see if they decide to do a new book.
