With high school comedy The DUFF releasing this weekend, the Now Conspiring podcast team thought it would be useful to discuss how the whimsical teen comedies we love from the 80s and 90s basically went instinct as we entered the early 2000s.
There’s a conspiracy afoot.
We have a special guest this week! Luis Rodriguez joined us this week to discuss his experience at the Hot Tub Time Machine 2 world premiere, and of course a review. We also review The DUFF and chat about McFarland USA briefly.
Later in the show, we discuss our personal picks for the Oscars, including a lengthy discussion about Aquaman’s new look as released this week for the Justice League movies. Also, what is the hidden meaning behind “Unite the Seven?” Theories!
Stick around for our Netflix Recommendation of the Week, as well as our preview of the new movies coming out this weekend that you should check out.
That song you hear during the top of the show is Passion Pit’s latest single, “Lifted Up (1985).” Their new album, Kindred, comes out April 21st.
Enjoy the show, and don’t forget to rate and subscribe to the show on iTunes if you like us alright!
