The Mission: Impossible Series – Anyway, That’s All I Got!

mission: impossible

With the recent release of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, we here at ATAIG thought it would be the perfect opportunity to trace the lineage of the series—from 1996 to 2018—and try to figure out how and why this franchise has managed to keep going strong. We talk about the ones that worked (five of them), the one that didn’t quite work, all of the crazy stunts, and all of the insanely complicated storylines over the years. We also have an important announcement at the beginning, so make sure you don’t miss that, and enjoy!

Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia!

Question For You: Which M:I movie is your favorite? Also, whose facemask would you want to have? But, most importantly, can you explain the plot of any of these in one sentence? Comment below, email us at ataigpodcast@gmail.com, or follow us on Twitter: @AnywayCast.

Snarcasm: This WALL-E Theory Makes So Much Sense That It Doesn’t

Fan theories are both the best and the worst. Kind of like people! But you can’t say the same about Pixar’s WALL-E, a triumph of animated cinema about the overly capitalist dangers of mankind passively wreaking havoc on the environ—

The Die Hard Movies – Anyway, That’s All I Got!

die hard

In celebration of Dwayne Johnson’s new action blockbuster Skyscraper, as well as the recent roast of Bruce Willis on Comedy Central, we decided to talk about the (surprisingly pretty good) series of movies known only as the Die Hard franchise. Anthony took over as host this week as we took a 25-year journey from 1988 all the way to 2013 and tried to figure out how this franchise has handily managed to keep going. Afterward, we throw out some ideas for what we’d like to see from the forthcoming 6th installment of the series, and some of our director suggestions might not be what you expect. Enjoy!

Hosted by Anthony Battaglia, Jason Read, and Sam Noland!

Question For You: How did you like Anthony as a host? Also, give us your pitch for a 6th installment in the Die Hard series.

Cinemaholics Review: Christopher Robin and The Spy Who Dumped Me

Christopher Robin

Big episode this week. I’m joined by Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to review Christopher Robin, Disney’s latest live-action reimagining of a classic tale. Like most of you, I have fond memories of the Winnie the Pooh characters, so I’ve been quite curious about this new film since it was first announced. The reviews are definitely mixed so far, and I think you’ll hear some of that in this episode. Regardless, we had a great conversation about the film, plus some others like The Spy Who Dumped Me and BlacKkKlansman.

Ask us questions! Our Q&A episode is coming up soon, and we’re keeping track of all your questions. Comment below or send us an email to have your voice heard.

All Three of Pixar’s Billion-Dollar Movies Are Sequels. Now What?

Pixar

From Animation World Network:

Incredibles 2 became just the seventh animated film to cross the $1 billion mark at the global box office. It is Disney’s fifth animated and 18th-ever billion-dollar release and joins Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War as Disney’s third release to reach the $1 billion milestone this year.

Egregious success for Disney in 2018 aside, Pixar is now the first animated studio to release three films with $1 billion worldwide box office. And all three of these films are sequels: Toy Story 3Finding Dory, and now Incredibles 2. And yet people wonder why Pixar continues to make sequels in the first place. Money speaks louder than critics, I suppose.
