This week Part-Time Characters goes back in time to review some classic horror/supernatural movies. We did our best to keep a brave face. It’s another special episode of Retro Reviews, where we each pick a movie we haven’t seen but we have been meaning to watch for quite some time.
Disclaimer: Our normal recording device crashed at the end of the episode (go figure), so we were forced to use a backup recording of slightly lesser quality. We apologize for the inconsistent sound of this episode.
Solo: A Star Wars Story has finally been released, and we’re concluding our conversation on the entire cinematic Star Wars franchise. After a quick appetizer of a discussion on the animated Clone Wars movie from 2008, we go on a deep dive into the current era of Star Wars. From The Force Awakens all the way through the newly-released Solo, we engage in some of the most impassioned debates and disagreements we’ve ever had. After that, we all propose our own ideas for the unlikely Star Wars Anthologies we want to see, and they might not be what you expect. Enjoy!
Question for you: What’s a Star Wars Anthology you would want to see on the big screen? Also, what are your views on the Disney era of Star Wars?
We. Are. Back! After a very long break, Part-Time Characters is back and ready to talk about new movie releases, Netflix recommendations and pop culture. We decided to start with a bang and talk about Star Wars latest attempt, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Joined by Bridget and Adonis, we talk about our new Han Solo, the terrible way he got his name, the new characters and how Donald Glover is annoyingly great at everything he does. How did you feel about the Solo movie? Don’t forget to tell us in the comment section!
We have been gone for five months and we wanted to start out slow. That is why we decided to post an episode every other week. That way we can concentrate on making good content and once we find our footing, we will gradually increase to releasing episodes weekly. We are also open to suggestions and any topics you might want to hear us talk about. Don’t forget to email us with any of your ideas.
Question of the Week: Do you think Disney is overdoing the Star Wars movies? What Star Wars anthology movie do you want to see next?

In honor of R. Lee Ermey, who sadly passed away this week, we decided to count down our 5 favorite supporting characters from a whole litany of movies. We quickly realized that we had bitten off more than we could chew with this massive topic, because there are literally MILLIONS of supporting characters, but we decided to give it a shot anyway!
Question for you: Who are some of your favorite supporting characters from movies? Also, what do you think it truly takes to be a good supporting character?

With so much to choose from, it’s hard to sit down and pick one Netflix series that’s worth watching. Not to worry! Hopefully Part-Time Characters can help with any indecisiveness. While Maria works the solo shift in this fictional video store, recurring guest and video store client, Jerry Rodriguez, joins this week’s episode to talk about Netflix shows and specials that are worth a try.
January films have less than an amazing reputation. Coming off the Oscar buzz months and some questionable holiday movies, the New Year always starts with random horror movies, not good enough for the month of October, low budget films and a few indie gems. In this week’s episode of Part-Time Characters, Maria, Adonis and Jenny try to get to the bottom of why January is considered by the film community a ‘dump month’.
In our first episode of 2018, we discuss everything we watched during the holiday break, our opinions over the Disney-Fox deal, and the repercussions it might create.
We start off talking about our Christmas break what we’ve been up to. We also briefly pick our favorite holiday foods and traditions. This is when we all realize Adonis has never had the distinct pleasure of tasting Baileys.
After we each discuss the movies and series we have been watching, we talk about the Disney-Fox deal and what it means for the future of the movie industry. While many are excited because X-Men will finally show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the consequences of this merger will change the industry as we know it.
