    Persuasion (2022) & Ryan Skonnord

    Persuasion (2022) & Ryan Skonnord

    Diana is officially buried in Austen comfort picks with Persuasion (2022). To be fair, it was a podcast opportunity after having a movie date with her mom. Ryan and Diana join a few weeks late to the party to just in time to side with the backlash to the backlash to this film.
    Eight years after Anne Elliot was persuaded not to marry a dashing man of humble origins, they meet again. Will she seize her second chance at true love? Stars Dakota Johnson, Cosmo Jarvis, Henry Golding, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Mia McKenna-Bruce, Richard E. Grant, Ben Bailey, Nia Towle, Izuka Hoyle, Yolanda Kettle, Edward Bluemel, Afolabi Alli, Jenny Rainsford, and Lydia Rose Bewley. (from wikpedia.org and IMDb.com)

    Mr. Malcolm’s List (2022) & Ryan Skonnord

    Mr. Malcolm’s List (2022) & Ryan Skonnord

    Happy to find a movie with very low stakes, Diana’s pick is the recent release, Mr. Malcolm’s List (2022). Pride and Predjudice comparisons ensue. Ryan points out Diana’s list for good period pieces may also be a bit like the eponymous hero’s.

Soon, Mr. Malcolm wonders whether he’s found the perfect woman or the perfect hoax. Stars Freida Pinto, Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Zawe Ashton, Theo James, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, and Ashley Park.

    The Matrix (1999) / The Matrix Resurrections (2021) & Ryan Skonnord

    The Matrix (1999) / The Matrix Resurrections (2021) & Ryan Skonnord

    For Ryan’s dual pick, the ongoing story of Neo and Trinity in the most recent movie cast a more interesting light on their relationship from the original. Diana has a conundrum with the podcast “what happens next” rules since only Lana Wachowski came back to write and direct Resurrections.
    Here is the Twin Peaks You Tube video Ryan mentions.

Stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, Hugo Weaving, Gloria Foster, Joe Pantoliano, Marcus Chong, Julian Arahanga, Matt Doran, Belinda McClory, Anthony Ray Parker, written and directed by Lilly Wachowski and Lana Wachowski. (from IMDb.com)
    The Matrix Resurrections – Return to a world of two realities: one, everyday life; the other, what lies behind it. To find out if his reality is a construct, to truly know himself, Mr. Anderson will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. Stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris, Jada Pinkett Smith, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Christina Ricci, written and directed by Lana Wachowski.

    Fire Island (2022) & Ryan Skonnord

Listening Happily Ever After

Fantastic podcast! Good quality, great chemistry between the hosts. The movies covered are wonderful - the episodes reminded me of a lot of movies I had forgotten about, and made me realize I should give a few others a second chance.
