Our Most Overrated Actors – Now Conspiring

the most overrated actors

Just because they are famous, doesn’t mean they live up to the hype. This week on Now Conspiring, we talk about the actors and actresses we consider overrated but not before playing a good ol’ round of Would You Rather.

We also discuss a little bit of what we did during our Easter weekend and our family traditions like ultra-challenging egg hunts.

Later on, we reply to all of your comments which were all mostly related to 13 Reasons Why and how it could negatively affect people suffering with depression.

Question of the Week: Who is the most overrated actor?

13 Reasons Why Bridget Hates Maria – Now Conspiring

podcast (1)

It’s just us girls this week — Maria and Bridget — talking about personal stuff; and by ”talking” I mean Maria asking questions and Bridget hating Maria for it. And by ”personal stuff” I mean questions about our favorite movies and what they mean to us.

After making Bridget uncomfortable, we move on to talk in depth about the latest Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and how it represents suicide, teenage depression and bullying.

Then, during the Comment on your Comments section, we have a sequel to our previous Science throwdown, although this time it is less intense and more amicable.

Question of the Week: What Netflix shows or movies do you recommend?

Ghosts, Trailers, And Titans – Now Conspiring

now conspiring

When we can’t decide what to talk about, we end up talking about everything. In this week’s episode we are joined by the lovely Jenny Pan to talk about the latest movie trailers and to question the violence rate in Pulp Fiction (Sam doesn’t think it’s that violent. Shocker).

We also review the latest Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why, and the new live action manga adaptation, Ghost in the Shell. But it doesn’t stop there. Jenny expresses some delayed frustrations about the live action Beauty and the Beast and it snowballs into a full on rant.

Then, during the Comment on your Comments section, Bridget tells it like it is when a commenter defies her knowledge of physics. It is quite a special segment.

Question of the Week: Should Bridget have a Science Corner segment in the podcast?

Since Hollywood isn’t planning on slowing down with the remakes and Kong: Skull Island is now in theaters, the gang talks about the movies they think merit a remake. We also discuss what should be considered when remaking a franchise or a standalone movie, from respecting the original story to the style the director chooses to portray it. If you stick around long enough, you will hear Maria and Sam basically screaming out all the things wrong about Kong: Skull Island. Don’t worry. No one was harmed during the rant.

Question of the Week: What is your favorite movie remake? What movie do you think deserves a remake and why?
