    70. Dream Story / Eyes Wide Shut

    Fantasy, lust, envy, nighttime wanderings, masks, and the most boring male-gaze-y orgy of all time. That's right! It’s time for Jennifer and Kaylia to talk sex, love, and dreams aka Dream Story (1926) and its film adaptation Eyes Wide Shut (1999).

    69. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (All 4 Versions!)

    68. Howl's Moving Castle

    68. Howl's Moving Castle

    Leah and Kaylia attempt to separate their love of the book from their disappointment in the movie and discuss the very different stories the two are attempting to tell. We try to answer the important questions like… How do these two much-loved things actually connect to one another? How much slime is the right amount of slime? Who is this movie for? What happened to Sophie’s sisters? Can you adapt an English fairy tale into a Japanese anime movie about a Middle Eastern war and set it somewhere in France? Should you? Plus Star Trek trivia! Enjoy!

    66. The Mothman Prophecies (Crossover Episode!)

    66. The Mothman Prophecies (Crossover Episode!)

    In this very special Crossover Halloween Episode, Matt and Kaylia talk about the folklore that became the book, the book that became the movie: the Mothman Prophecies! We talk about what works and what doesn’t, what the book/movie can tell us about US society in the 70s and early 2000s, and attempt to determine if the Mothman, the UFOs, the Men In Black, and the very scary Chapstick are worth our attention. Enjoy!
