The Bloopers Episode: Part-Time Characters

PART-TIME CHARACTERS'

It is the end of 2017. It is time for fresh starts and welcoming 2018 with open arms. But before we could do that, Part-Time Characters wanted to take a trip down memory lane. This week’s episode is a special holiday treat where our listeners get to hear all of the mistakes we make before the final edit is done.

The episode includes all the outtakes and laughs we had throughout 2017. You will hear all of Sam’s sketch ideas for Gandalf the Wizard, Adonis’s attempt to roast a meat and Bridget’s Long Island and New Jersey accents.

Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi

The One Where We Are All Angry #NotMyLuke

Star Wars Episode VII came out in theaters a week ago and Part-Time Characters is finally ready to talk about The Last Jedi with all of the spoilers and rage. Accompanied by our guest, Jerry Rodriguez, we let the hate flow through us as we discuss the out of place humor, the new character pairings and ‘the twist’ that people either love or hate.

Be warned. We talk about every little detail of this movie. There will be all the spoilers. If you haven’t seen this movie yet and don’t want it spoiled for you, maybe come back in a week and have a listen.

Cinemaholics Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the only film we talked about on this week’s podcast, and boy did we talk for a while. Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines joined me for a three-pronged discussion.

First, we shared our thoughts on the entire Star Wars filmography so far in order to give an overall impression of where we’re at with these movies going into The Last Jedi. Next, our spoiler-free review of the film. Finally, we dove into a full spoiler discussion, so keep an ear out for our spoiler warning and transition music.

Because we recorded this episode on Friday, some of the negative backlash to the film had already come to light, giving us a chance to address some of it throughout our review. Agree? Disagree? Sound off in the comments.

On the show this week, I sit with Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to discuss our most anticipated films of the Winter season. We each picked three specific films to highlight, listed out a few honorable mentions, and agreed to “share” our excitement for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which we’ll be able to review in full next week.

We also got a chance to briefly discuss some movies we’ve seen over the last week, though we didn’t have enough time for Mini Reviews. I brought up what’s become one of my favorite films of the entire year, Bad Genius, which is available for rental on VOD. I heartily recommend it, along with The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro’s new film hitting a wider release this month.

2016 movies revisited

The Post Hurricane Episode

How many 2016 movies did you mean to watch but never got around to it? In this week’s episode, we discuss movies from last year we only recently saw for the first time. We also talk about movies we rewatched and if our opinions changed at all.

We start all the way back in January 2016 with movies like The Revenant and Kung Fu Panda and finish with the end of year Oscar Nominees like Hidden Figures, Moonlight and La La Land. Continue reading Part-Time Characters: Movies We Missed From 2016

Cinemaholics Review: The Disaster Artist

On this week’s podcast, I’m joined by Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to review The Disaster Artist, along with a lot of other new releases we saw this week like Marvel’s Runaways and The Man Who Invented Christmas.

Starring James Franco and his brother Dave Franco, The Disaster Artist (which Franco also directed) is a new film from A24 about the making of The Room, known to many as perhaps the “best worst” movie ever made. The film is getting a ton of love from audiences and critics alike, so naturally, we had a great discussion on what we think of the Oscar contender.

The rest of the show is devoted to a slew of Mini Reviews, from a new documentary about Jim Carrey and Andy Kaufman on Netflix to the Nightcrawler writer/director’s follow up film starring Denzel Washington. Plus a few more surprises.
