  1. Sorry, conspiracy chameleons. I didn’t see anything in my podcast feed last week, so I didn’t think there was an episode. Oh, well. But, that doesn’t matter now. What does matter is the movie I love more every time. You may be surprised to hear this, but I didn’t love Pulp Fiction the first time I saw it. At first I thought it was pretty decent, but I kept watching it again and again, and now I watched it on Friday for the eighth time, and it remains as my all-time favorite movie. Some other movies that I like more and more are Inglourious Basterds, Alien, Kill Bill 1&2, and Goodfellas. If you hadn’t guessed it yet, Quentin Tarantino is my favorite director . Also, on an unrelated note, if you need someone to read comments in different voices, I’m told I am a pretty good impressionist. But, in more romantic news, Adonis has officially gone on one more date than me, thus making him my role model, even though I disagree with him about the Dark Knight Rises. Anyway, it hadn’t occured to me that you don’t know my gender, so I will now further confuse you by saying that I like the Dark Knight Rises because I am attracted to both Anne Hathaway AND Christian Bale. Ponder that, you conspiracy camels. And finally, on Netflix, I recommend Christopher Nolan’s Following, a well-made and underseen first effort by the man behind the cowl. farewell, and don’t try backing out of an ATM. It doesn’t work.

    • OH NO! I FORGOT TO PUT MY NAME IN THE COMMENT!

  2. I am not gonna lie, first time I saw Jurassic World I questioned the existence of the movie. I thought the movie was a joke. But then I thought, they didn’t really try to do anything with this movie. I don’t know why I was expecting something that would evolve dinosaur movies. I’ve seen it three times and I have fun with it now. I also want to say great job on hosting the podcast Maria. You’re really funny and awesome.

    • I am not happy with this comment.

  3. Oh I forgot, I am Team Gale. Peeta may be cute, but Gale is HOT.

  4. I didn’t like Kick Ass 3 the first time I saw it. But I saw it again, and I still hate it. It could have used more Shia LaBeouf.

    • That is actually everyone’s biggest complaint about it. We’re going to try to give Shia a bigger role in the next one 🙂

      • Thank you.

  5. I was thinking about this for a while, but my answer is Hunger Games Catching Fire!

    • i agree wid u..
      this movie didn’t hold any sort of revelance..i felt a lack of plot and story timeline

  6. Despite being an avid Disney and Pixar fan, I wasn’t a big fan of Wall-e when it first came out. I didn’t hate it, I just felt it was decent, not great. Now it’s one of my favorite movies.

    Also, I’m neither Team Peeta or Team Gale. I’ve found the Gale-Katniss relationship to be forced and made only out of convenience as opposed to actual feelings. Katniss never saw him as anything more than a friend and then felt all sorts of weird after he kissed her that one time. The Peeta-Katniss relationship was developed and actually seemed real. However, I never really liked either one of them over the other myself. I’ve always like Finnick way more. He’s got a useful skill, he saves lives (ie: Peeta with CPR in catching Fire), and he’s hilarious. Gale is useful, but kind of a jerk and not terribly funny. And Peeta is just kinda strong, however he never really uses that strength to his advantage and he’s kind of moderately funny on the occasion.

  7. I don’t think I have an answer to the question this week. I just can’t seem to relate to it. Pretty weird. But I will say I am team Peeta. Sure Gale is hotter, but Gale has been friend zoned and dude can’t handle that fact. Peeta is obviously the better choice.
