Hey QPQers! After what seems like an eternity, your favorite couple is back! That’s right, Jesse & Celine from Richard Linklater’s Before film series! Your second favorite couple (that’s us, BTW) finally finishes reviewing the trilogy with Before Midnight. And we pair it with Linklater’s Oscar nominated movie filmed over the course of twelve years, Boyhood. Listen and see if we feel the Before trilogy sticks the landing and if Boyhood was worth the wait.
P.S. Spoilers for Gone Girl in our Before Midnight review.
Welcome back to a special bonus episode of Quid Pod Quo. In this episode we’ll discuss the critically acclaimed, racially charged comedy Dear White People and the over-the-top, ultraviolent comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service. We also discuss an exciting way you can help torture us by making us watch Fifty Shades of Grey!
Welcome back, Quid Pod Quoers! After an unexpected break we’re back behind the mic. After discussing the future of Spider-Man films, we jump into our reviews of the first two movies in Richard Linklater’s romance trilogy, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. An appropriate choice for Valentine’s Day if I do say so myself!
*NOTE* In our Once & Future Queue at the beginning of the show, we briefly discuss the movie and the novel Horns. Spoilers ensue.
Happy 2015 everyone! We kick off the year with a bonus review of one of the last movies to hit theaters in 2014, Into the Woods! Does the Disney bought musical hit high notes or does it fall flat? Also, at the top of our show we give our top 3 movies of 2014 and top 3 movies we were forced to review last year. Here’s links to episodes where we reviewed some of the movies that made our top lists:
Happy holidays QPQers! We’re back with the second half of our 80s night two-parter. In this episode we review Justine’s pick, the essential 80s action flick, Top Gun and Jared’s pick, the sci-fi actioner Predator. Which one is more ridiculous? Listen and find out. Also, as a holiday bonus we give a very brief, spoiler free review of Tom Cruise’s latest sci-fi movie, this summer’s Live. Die. Repeat.aka The Edge of Tomorrow!
p.s. in the Once & Future Queue, I mistakenly called Adrian Alphona, Adrian Alphonzo. Mea culpa.
Neither illness, nor overtime, nor packed schedules stays Quid Pod Quo from the (eventual) completion of our appointed rounds! After a brief delay we’re back with our reviews of the holiday classic, A Christmas Story and the seminal Brat Pack film, The Breakfast Club.
We recorded this episode in my mom’s house over the night before Thanksgiving, so we have a few “guest appearances” in the background.
We accidentally dropped a pretty significant How To Get Away With Murder spoiler from the mid-season finale during Justine’s section of the Once & Future Queue. Seriously, it was a biggie. Skip to 13:10 if you want to avoid it!
Happy post-Thanksgiving to our American listeners! Happy…um… normal day to our non American listeners! With the weather getting colder, we decided to pick some movies that are good for snugglin’! Justine’s pick was the French romance Love Me If You Dare and I picked a movie I’d been meaning to watch for a while, True Romance. Download this episode, grab a loved one and snuggle under the covers with the 50th (non bonus) episode of Quid Pod Quo!
It’s been a little while, but we’re back! Listen to our review of Horns, the new movie starring the former Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe. Is it the breakaway performance his fans have been waiting for? Is the first film adaptation of a work by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King) a hit! Listen and find out!
Welcome to our first official horror review of the Halloween season. Listen as we review one of the first NC-17 films ever, the controversial thriller Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer & the video game supernatural slasher, Stay Alive!
