The best antagonists reveal the truth to the audience, and that's our goal when we discuss movies. We can be nice, and we can be brutal, but we're always revealing the truth about the movies we watch. This is "The Antagonists", featuring Andrew Sutton and Ryan Sisk.
American comedies: take notes. Today we're talking about Hot Fuzz, one of the best comedies ever.
We'll talk a lot about the cinematography, the intentionality behind the jokes, and why American comedies need to step it up.

Star Wars: A New Hope
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away... gosh we love the OG Star Wars films.
In today's episode, we're talking about why the OG Star Wars is so good, we're breaking down the Monomyth structure (AKA The Hero's Journey), and HAN SHOT FIRST.

Wonder Woman 1984
The lasso of truth is cheating. Ironic no?
Wonder Woman 1984 was just... bad. Between confused character arcs, an overstuffed plot, and PPP, (what is that you may ask? Listen to find out!) this film stepped up to the plate and forgot the bat. But, we still had fun making fun of it!

"OH PISS OFF!" - Andrew to the Emperor
In this episode, we talk about tripping on nothing, "THIS IS A STRONG MESSAGE!!!", and an alternate ending that could (maybe) make the themes and climax more satisfying.

"YOU SACK OF WINE!" Best. Film. Insult. Ever.
The 2004 film "Troy" starring Brad Pitt is a Greek Epic come to life. It certainly has it's flaws, but it's a well layered and entertaining movie. Just as Achilles wants to be remembered throughout time, this is a film that deserves to be remembered for years to come.

"Now you see that evil will always triumph, because good is dumb. - Dark Helmet" - Ryan Sisk
I have no idea how we got to talking about Space Balls, because this weeks episode is all about the man who started the MCU: Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man. In this episode we talk about Yinsen being THE MAN, why Obadiah might have actually done the US a great service, and the best way to set up a final conflict.
