In this episode of Quid Pod Quo, we look at two (relatively) modern spins on fairy tales: Ever After, a retelling of Cinderella; and Ridley Scott’s original fable, Legend.
Also, during our “Once & Future Queue” we mention “You Are Not Alone” published by Grayhaven Comics; an anti-bullying comic book anthology that Justine contributed a story to. Please pick up a copy for yourself and for anyone you know who may be a victim of violence, homophobia, racism, etc and spread the word that they are not alone! You can purchase the comic here.
P.S. During part of our review of Ever After our steam radiator decides to grace the podcast with its presence. Apologies for the high pitched whistling.
I’m sure when people heard there was going to me a “LEGO Movie”, countless eyes rolled across the world. But several excellent reviews and $100 million later, and eyes aren’t rolling anymore. But what do we, as both parents and LEGO fanatics, think of the latest kid’s movie phenomenon? Listen and find out!
Quid Pod Quo goes all-out this week reviewing two incredibly violent flicks. The 1987 sci-fi classic, Robocop and the cartoony, over-the-top gun fest from 20 years later, Shoot ‘Em Up. Both are Jared’s picks, so take a listen to see if Justine could stomach either movie!
As Jared mentioned on this episode, Robocop director Paul Verhoeven has mentioned in an interview the connection between Robocop & Jesus. Check it out below!
Annnnnnnd we’re back! Fall/winter of 2013 came and went without any QPQ. But we’re back and we’re bringing one of 2013′s most controversial movies with us: Adore. The second half of our Naomi Watts double feature is the romantic comedy, Le Divorce co-starring Kate Hudson. Also, Jared dissolves into Macho Man Randy Savage for a little bit towards the end. Welcome back to QPQ for 2014!
Hey Quid Pod Quoers! We know it’s been a little bit since out last episode, but to make up for it, we’re giving you 3 movies for the price of one: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End.

Hey folks, before we dive into our next episode which promises to be incredibly depressing (Atonement and Requiem for a Dream aren’t exactly feel good crowd pleasers) we decided to review two movies currently in theaters: The Conjuring and The Wolverine! Please be warned though, as with all episodes of Quid Pod Quo, we will discuss these movies in-depth and you can (and should) expect spoilers for both of these movies (as well as a very small one for Hard Candy). Otherwise, enjoy our review and Justine’s strange preoccupation with dismembering Wolverine and how he heals.
Also, check out Jared’s deeper dive into The Wolverine in his written review!
Welcome back QPQers! We’re coming to the end of our epic movie duology, and have saved the longest for last. First we’ll discuss the director’s cut of Kingdom of Heaven, then we dive into Titanic. Six hours and forty-five minutes of battles, blood, boobs, and boats (well, ships). Find out what we thought right now!
Oh irony, you are a cruel mistress. After watching six Fast & Furious movies, we get into a car accident. No, we weren’t trying to live out any fantasies of joining Dom & Co. But we’re back with a bang on the Independence Day weekend as we discuss two epic ripped from the bloody pages of American history. The assassination of JFK and the story of the first Gangs of New York.
It’s over, it’s all over! After three episodes, we bid adieu to Dom, Bryan and the Ride or Die crew. Oh, the series isn’t over. Not by a long shot! But our reviews of the series are for a little while. Put the pedal to the metal and listen as we wrap up the sextet? Sextology? Double trilogy! Enjoy.
