Episode 18: The Grinch (2018)

Here we are with another in our series “In Theaters Now,” where we discuss a movie that just opened this weekend.  This week, just in time for . . . two weeks before Thanksgiving . . . it’s the newest update/reboot/reimagining/cashgrab of Dr. Seuss’ classic Christmas tale “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, an animated creation with the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones and a brief voice cameo by Angela Lansbury.  Is it any good? How does it stack up against the original 1966 animated classic? Give a listen and find out.  Hear us be holly and jolly and other words ending in “-olly”!

Episode 17: Bohemian Rhapsody

Welcome to our latest series, “In Theaters Now.” In this series, we actually discuss a movie that is currently playing, quite possibly in a theater near you; we see the movie on Thursday or Friday and then have the discussion up for you on Monday.  How do we do it? Volume, volume, volume! And speaking of volume, this week we’re talking about the rock bio-pic “Bohemian Rhapsody” starring Rami Malek, which tells the story (sort of) of the rise of the classic rock band Queen.  Is it worth seeing? Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the fandango?
