After Lunch | Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning, Part One (2023)

Rob and I wrap our Mission: Impossible movies watch-through (for now) with the new entry in the series: Dead Reckoning, Part One. We talk about all the spoilers and whether second viewings changed our perspective on anything. Well, one thing in particular, but sure, everything else, too.

After Lunch | Star Trek: Discovery, Season 4

Rob, Delaney, and I continue our Star Trek Trek with season 4 of Discovery. Find out what we thought of the butterfly people, the new Federation President, all that jargon (The DMA! Species 10-C! The Orb! The Hyperfield!), and the most contentious element of the season: Zora.

Hellbent for Letterbox | The Duchess and the Dirtwater Fox (1976)

Pax and I touch the plums on Western-comedy The Duchess and the Dirtwater Fox, starring Goldie Hawn and George Segal.

After Lunch | The Hasbro Cinematic Universe

As Hasbro begins building its cinematic universe in real life, Rob and I welcome Jeeg and my son, David to talk about how we would do it. Following the MCU model, each person has picked a Hasbro game or toy to adapt into a movie that then connects somehow into the other movies, all leading to an Avengers-style crossover blockbuster. Madness or genius? You decide!

After Lunch | On Her Majesty's Secret Christmas

Since we just talked about On Her Majesty's Secret Service last episode, now seems like a good time to revisit this conversation from my old Sleigh Bell Cinema podcast in which I talk with Carlin Trammel about the movie and how (or if) it functions as a Christmas movie.

After Lunch | On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)

After some Goldfinger and Thunderball trivia that you can play along with, Rob, Karen Flieger, and I talk about George Lazenby's grounded and human James Bond, Diana Riggs' lovely and kickass Tracy di Vicenzo, and Telly Savalas' tough and brutish Ernst Stavro Blofeld. It's an unusual entry in the series, but is it also good? Once we settle that, we wrap with some On Her Majesty's Secret Service trivia, too.
