Episode 203: We're Not Crying...Yes We Are (Top 5 Tearjerker Movies)
Movies capture the human experience and whether J likes it or not, crying is a part of the human experience. Still on the hunt for their co-host Q, our teary travelers Mia and J hunt for the Top 5 Tearjerker Movies of All Time. It gets pretty sad, but we're pretty happy about it. Grab those tissues and come along.
Hollywood seems determined to make us cry and take our money. Whether it's dying kids, or lost animals, or dying family, or dying pets, or dying dreams, they love to put us through the wringer. Is it the Pixar touch that gets you, or is it a touching mother-daughter relationship? Whatever your teary fancy, J and Mia talk about it in this episode!
Episode 202: Two Tickets To Paradise (Top 5 Fantasy Worlds)
Come fly with Mia, come and fly with J. On this very special episode, J and Mia are on a quest through the fantasy worlds of film and literature to find our missing Q. It’s a journey that requires friends and frenemies along the way, and not everyone may make it back!
Whether we’re stepping through wardrobes, being thrown by tornados, on journeys with jewelry, or simply traveling far, far away, we encounter whatever it is you desire. Grab your tickets and listen in as we discuss the best fantasy worlds of all time!
Episode 201: It's Game Over, Man (Top 5 Worst Video Games Movies)
When it comes to the echelon of movies adapted from video games, it's hard to pick a top 5. Mainly, because there aren't 5 really great video games movies! But building an episode around all the BAD video game movies...now there's an idea! And that's just what we did. J, Mia, and Q get together to wade through the movie mires and finally decide on the Top 5 Worst Video Game Movies of All Time!
We all select our players, pick up mushrooms and coins along the way, and try to avoid whatever the hell is going on in the House of the Dead. Things get heated when J takes personal offense at a Michael Fassbender movie, and Q may just love one of the Mortal Kombat movies. And with her epic skills, it's more like The Legend of Chun-Mia. We watched all the bad video game adaptations so you didn't have to!
Episode 200: The Gang Turns 200 (Our 200th Episode!)
We made it! 200 episodes and counting. Who would have guessed? We mean, The Simpsons didn’t even make it to 200 episodes (don’t look that up). We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate 200 episodes than by joining in an apocalyptic group hug and ranking our Top 5 Movie Memories! This one gets emotional, Fivers.
On this very special episode, find out what experiences really created the movie-obsessed hosts you know and love. Which family members get to have sexy movie experiences with Mia? How many movies can J fit into one Summer? How did Q crash a showing of Beetlejuice? Find out the answers to these and so much more on our 200th episode!
Episode 199: The Team Talks Tudyk (Top 5 Alan Tudyk Performances)
Alan Tudyk. You know him and you love him, whether or not you know him and know you love him. Alan Tudyk is one of those character actors that is more than just the roles he plays. J, Mia, and Q have been collectively obsessed with Tudyk's tenacity for as long as we can remember, so on this episode, we're joining forces to Talk Tudyk and discover once and for all the Top 5 Alan Tudyk Performances of All Time!
We purposefully didn't stick to just movies on this one since Tudyk's talent transcends television, movies, cartoons, and online content. You may love him in Firefly just as much as you love him as Duke Weaselton in Zootopia. It's not up to us to judge. Oh, wait! Yes, it is! And we have a blast judging Alan Tudyk!
Episode 198: Mia and J Get Based on a True Story (Top 5 Movies Based on True Stories)
We've all heard the phrase "It's so weird it had to be true" but few have gone as far as J and Mia did when they recorded an entire episode about movies based on true stories! While Q was off teaching sign language to Komodo dragons in Barcelona, Mia and J tell each other stories...true stories, as they count down the Top 5 Movies Based on True Stories ever made! This is a podcast made for you if you get chills when a movie starts with "Based on a true story...".
While Mia and J wait for Q's list to be delivered by cybernetic carrier pigeon, they discuss how many liberties movies can take with stories before no longer being true stories and J regales Mia with his best impressions of Q. Pull up Wikipedia to fact check our true stories and don't miss this episode!
