Thoughts on the First Teaser for ‘The Good Dinosaur’

It’s been a busy week, so I’m just now getting a chance to share my thoughts on The Good Dinosaur teaser that came out this week. And I have a lot to say for a teaser barely a minute long.
This is a tough movie to talk about due to the unusual air of mystery around it. But we finally have something to talk about, now that the movie is just several months away. But I’m sure you’re all wondering the same thing: Does it look good?

game of thrones hardome

Hey Game of Throners, sorry for the delay in this week’s episode recap. The Now Conspiring podcast gang gathered around to discuss the latest episode, “Hardhome,” and the results are as terrifying as you can imagine.

An interesting thing you’ll notice about this episode is that we talked a lot about the future of the series as a whole, for obvious reasons. Careful for spoilers if you haven’t seen this episode, and if you hate comparisons between the book and the show, this isn’t the podcast for you.

‘Aloha’ Mini Review — Jerry Maguire Goes Hawaii

aloha review

There’s a good, maybe even special, movie somewhere inside of Aloha, the latest Cameron Crowe offering that wants to recapture the magic of Crowe’s early, infectious work. Unfortunately, that hidden movie is quite exactly that: hidden. And it’s beneath a final product that feels harshly edited, despite being pretty confident.

Mounds of character-building scenes are replaced with conspicuous exposition and quick bits of dialogue that are meant to be “enough” for us to keep following along in this strange romantic story about a former-military privateer helping a billionaire launch a weaponized satellite. Or something. Oh, and there’s a quirky romance.

game of thrones gift recap

Hey Throners, we have an awkward show for you this week…

“The Gift” is a significantly better episode than last week’s nonsense parade, not that this was a tough thing to pull off. I’m joined as always by my fun/cool cohosts as we do our best to unwrap this…well, you know.
