Going in, I never expected this to be one of our longest episodes. And believe it or not, the Christopher Nolan movie didn’t take up the majority of the discussion. Can a movie be a magic trick? Can a standard issue thriller still be good? And is Justine finally watching Doctor Who? Find out!
P. S. For the record, after Justine’s statements on this episode, I went back to see how many of her movies I liked during the course of the show. It’s more than half. So there!
Welcome to 19th century London. This week we take a look at Vanity Fair and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. I recorded with a nigh crippling migraine; question is, did one of the movies bring this on? All this and porn too! Enjoy.
We’re baaaaaaaack! Miss us? We sure as hell missed you guys. If you’re seeing this, then you stuck around through our unexpected hiatus and we cannot thank you enough.
Formalities out of the way, lets get down to business with a Very Special Episode. No, no one has a disease, or an underage drinking problem. It’s a different type of Very Special Episode. Two weeks ago, we sat down to review The Avengers, we had no idea it would end up breaking so many box office records. This will most likely be the biggest movie we review for Quid Pod Quo. Unless The Dark Knight Rises, makes it onto our review list!
The other reason this is a VSE is because it is the final episode of what we’re referring to as Quid Pod Quo 1.0. All of our episodes so far (including this one) were recorded on outdated, old software and woefully underpowered hardware. We wanted to create a podcast so bad, we just jumped right in with both feet and figured out mistakes as we went along. Now we feel a little more knowledgeable about what we’re doing. We have better software and hardware. We’re going to have a new show format that we think will work better and be more entertaining. And we’re excited to debut all of that to our loyal Quid Pod Quoers in our next episode! For now though, sit back, relax and hear our thoughts on the biggest movie of the year so far!
Welcome back Quid Pod Quoers! This week we watched two films written by screenwriting darling of the indie scene, Diablo Cody. Both our hosts have strong feelings going into the episode (Justine liked Juno, Jared hated the writing). Will they feel the same after watching Jennifer’s Body and Young Adult? Will Jared have to dust off his Emma Stone rant from The Help? Did Justine really see Jennifer’s Body before, or is she horribly mistaken? Find out now!
A little way into the Jennifer’s Body segment, my mic cut out and we had to re-record another day, so we may repeat ourselves. Sorry!
