Is Pixar’s Cars franchise worth another lap with Cars 3?
From Toy Story to Finding Dory, which Pixar movies found the most financial success with audiences?
Comparisons between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have always been an inevitable result of these two movies releasing just 12 months apart. And though they’re two very different films (one is a franchise opener and the other a prequel standalone), TFA and RO are both representative of the future that is Star Wars, one of the most beloved mythologies in modern history.
This week on the podcast, Jon and Will got together to talk about a lot of religious entertainment material, including the new HBO series, The Young Pope, last year’s Last Days in the Desert, and then our featured review, Silence, the latest film from Martin Scorsese. Also, we kicked things off with a brief look at some 2017 movies we’re excited about that aren’t superhero flicks.
Question of the Week: Which 2017 movie are you looking forward to the most?
It’s that time of year again for the Now Conspiring podcast to count off their favorite movies of 2016! There were a lot of great movies to pick from and some obvious overlap here and there (aside from our Top #1 picks), so sit back and relax as we reflect on our most enjoyable cinematic experiences of the year.
We also recorded a Bonus Rogue One episode this week, which you can stream directly here.
Question of the Week: What was your favorite movie and/or movie moment of 2016?
This week, we Pixar Detectives (Jon Negroni and Kayla Savage) took a close look at the animated movies coming out in 2017, and our live audience helped us decide which movie to be most excited about!
The best and biggest movies of 2017 are coming sooner than you might think. Here’s a quick guide to all of the ones we’re most excited about…and some we’re not so excited about.
I’ve been off the grid for two weeks on holiday, but I did manage to squeeze in this comprehensive list for Heroic Hollywood this past week. In it, I cover each movie, its trailer status, and whether or not it will be any good. Plus, I provide some insight on whether or not you should catch up on other movies, shows, and reading in order to get the most out of these releases.
You can check out the full guide and more here on Heroic Hollywood.
For 2017, I’ll be continuing more weekly shows, write-ups, and videos here and elsewhere. The Now Conspiring podcast comes out on Mondays, I have a weekly editorial for Heroic Hollywood on Tuesdays, my Facebook Live show “Pixar Detectives” hits Super News every Wednesday at 7pm pacific time, a new video or Snarcasm comes out on Thursdays, and my weekly movie reviews arrive on Fridays.
Here’s to a great year of snark, film analysis, amateur videography, surreal podcast moments, and as always, conspiring!
