    Ep. 434: Ready Player One (2018)

    We wrap up November with a sci-fi adventure as we discuss Stephen Spielberg's adaptation of the beloved novel Ready Player One. Set in the near future in a dystopian world where everyone thrives online, Ready Player One is a feast of nostalgia and pop culture. But is there any meat in this dish? Or is it all sweets? We dig into the smorgasbord of intellectual properties provided by Warner Bros. to discuss nostalgia, pastiche, the online world, taking back power and means, and much more as we head into the Analysis OASIS.

    Shock10ber comes to a close as we take on one of the two biggest horror franchises we've yet to discuss, Friday the 13th. On this concluding chapter of our annual horror marathon, we dive into the slasher genre and all its messy glory.

YES

Arguably the greatest podcast called “GoodTrash Genrecast.”

Why so political

I really enjoy this podcast, but my political opinion is not the exactly the same as theirs, even though they are similar I feel like they make it seem as though anyone with a slightly different political view is stupid. I am just so tired of having someone’s political views shoved down my throat all the time. Besides that I do really enjoy the podcast and there is a lot of great information.

This show makes movies even better.

I'm a pretty big fan of movies but honestly had gotten bored with review shows. Fortunately I discovered GTGC, which instead provides wonderful analysis accompanied by wit from a myriad of hosts and sometimes singing (which is good and not bad). If you are looking for something outside the norm of movie podcasts, give Good Trash a listen. You won't be disappointed or your money back.
