This podcast is all about bringing those pop culture, nerdy things that we all love to watch, and read………and discuss them. Talk about everything, what was a good idea, what didn’t work, and what we are excited for in the future.

TOTLB 240 Snatch

EIt's that time of the week again, to visit something from our distant, sometimes much more distant past! For this one, we are traveling all the way back to the YEAR 2000!! It was a British comedy, and a bit of a different type of film than we are used to seeing from Guy Ritchie! Of course, we're talking about the movie with a stacked cast, Snatch. When I say stacked, I mean it, as it stars; Jason Stathom, Brad Pitt, Lennie James, Dennis Farina, Vinnie Jones, Benicio Del Toro, and MORE! This movie is the story of two two different plots! One of the plots has to do with the search for a stolen diamond, and the other plot has to do a small time boxing promoter under the thumb of a gangster! This is one of those strange movies, that is just too funny, that you might not notice it's silliness! Make sure you take the time, to take a look back!

TOTLB 239 Lovecraft Country

EAre you a fan of HP Lovecraft? It seems like there are a good amount of movies/series, that are made based off of his ideas, or his stories. For this episode, we are indeed looking at something Lovecraft, in the HBO MAX series, Lovecraft Country. Lovecraft Country is based upon a novel of the same day, with the series being developed by Misha Green. It tells the story of a young black man in the 1950's, who is traveling across the United States in order to find his missing father. Of course, this wouldn't be an HP Lovecraft story, without monsters, and such! So they come, and they almost come out of nowhere! With only a select amount of episodes released, at the time of this recording, listen to what we've thought about the show so far.

TOTLB 238 Doyle Can’t Use a Cam

EThis episode starts with a little bit of chaos!! Gabe went out of state, and Juan's kids started school so we opted to have a social distant set of episodes!! That is much easier until we come to the live episode, which this was! Cam's weren't working, we started a new trial, it was a fury of craziness, in order to get us all together again!! SO, as you all know, at the end of our recording sessions, we always do a live session. During the live sessions, we turn to you, the listener in order to try and give us some topics to speak about! This episode is no different, and we even got a listener from Baltimore to chime in!! Hopefully you all will join us in the future!!

TOTLB 237 Nightmares on Elm Streets

EThe first nightmare occurred in 1984! This spawned many sequels, some successful and some less successful. PLUS a reboot in 2010! For this episode, we are visiting the original A Nightmare on Elm Street VS it's 2010 reboot of the franchise (which is now dead). PLUS we talk about the differences in the portrayal of Freddy Krueger. In the original 84 version, Freddy was portrayed by Robert Englund, and in the 2010 version, Freddy was portrayed by Jackie Earle Haley! From the story changes in Freddy's background, to the visual effects themselves, we talk about it all. Do you prefer your old Freddy or the new Freddy Krueger? Do you like his new background, or do you prefer your Freddy to just be a murderer? Does his face look more realistic, or just more goofy in the reboot? Let us know what you think, and listen to the episode, in order to hear what we thought about these different versions of the same universe!

TOTLB 236 Donnie Darko

EWhat dimension are we in? Are we actually time traveling? Did an airplane engine fall into your house? You need to carve out about six hours, in order to really figure out what is going on, in our latest pop culture classic!! For this episode, we're talking about the Gyllenhaal filled movie, Donnie Darko!! Chosen by out Patreon supporter Doyle, we go back to 2001 in order to take a look at a super confusing movie! What did you think of the mind trip, that is Donnie Darko!? If you're not quite sure what is going on, you're not in bad company. I think 3/4's of us were confused, BUT it gets a strong rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and is packed with a good amount of great actors!! Let us know what you think about this strange movie!

TOTLB 235 Lower Decks

EIn the future, 2020 will be known for many things. Some good, and some bad. The topic of today, will be viewed as good for some, and bad for others! Give us a listen, go watch the show, and let us know what you thought about it! We are speaking about the Star Trek show, Lower Decks! Stare Trek: Lower Decks is an animated series, is all about the "lower deck" crew members of the Cerritos. It stars Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noel Wells, and Eugene Cordero. Lower Decks is a comedy based animated series, that will remind you a little bit of shows like Futurama, American Dad, etc. At the time of this recording, there were only three episodes out, which of course could change our minds in the future, but for now, it's all we had to go by. What do you all think of this more raunchy, mature, animated series?

TOTLB S84 Elisa Lasowski

EI don't think you had enough Blood Machines!!! Because we don't think you had enough, we're back with another amazing interview from this crazy visual movie!! For today's interview, we had the chance to sit down and speak with Elisa Lasowski, who played Corey in the film. Corey is a priestess, who for some reason, is protecting all of the robots! Corey leads a whole group of priestesses that rule with an iron fist! Elisa told us about the process of getting the role, plus the process of filming. Because a good amount of her role was accomplished through CGI, she told us some funny stories about not really knowing what was happening, but trusting completely in the directors. She also tells us what it felt like when she first saw how visually stunning the movie ended up being! This is a really good interview with Elisa, plus you'll get to learn more about French cinema!

TOTLB S83 Sierra McCormick

EHere we are, you thought we were done with our coverage of the Amazon Prime Video movie, The Vast of Night! BUT, with a movie so good, we had to try and speak with everyone that we could, in order to understand this awesome movie, and team more!! To that end, we bring you another very fun interview from one of the principle actors!! Today, we release our chat that we had with Sierra McCormick! Sierra plays the female lead, Fay Corker! Fay works as the local switchboard operator in their town, with hopes to be a disc jockey like her friend Everett! With hopes of being more than a local DJ, Fay learns everything that she can about the profession, when they're thrown into an adventure of a lifetime! It turns out, that while there is a Basketball game going on that includes almost the whole town, Fay & Everett discover a signal, seemingly coming from outer space. This movie has some of the best dialogue of the year, and has almost 0 aliens, for being an "alien" movie. If, after all our ...

TOTLB 233 The Blob

EOur last episode in the pop culture classic session is ready to go!! This one comes with some cool cars, and a monster that, maybe isn't the greatest monster of all time! Plus, it was the newest, old movie we watched, only having to travel back to 1958!! Of course we're talking about the Steve McQueen movie, The Blob!! PLUS, it has a really cool song that you can teach to the kids! I think out of all three of the movies that we revisited in the 50's, this was probably the slowest paced one, and may have been the one least liked of the trio. BUT, what did you all think of The Blob? Do you like the slow burn of a monster that, maybe you can avoid by just simply, walking around it? Or does it just trudge on like a bad zombie movie? Let us know what you thought about this 1958 movie, and what you thought about the performance by the awesome, Steve McQueen!!
