This week on the podcast, we review Straight Outta Compton and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and great news! The whole cast is here this week, so we had tons of opinions and thoughts to share.
We also covered the latest entertainment news, read our favorite comments you left for us last week, gave you our Netflix Recommendation of the Week, then covered new movie releases you can check out next weekend.
(Amy, we’re pretty glad we won you in the “breakup”)
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What is your favorite movie scene EVER?
In this week’s episode of Now Conspiring, we’re joined by Reid Jones as we have a spoilery discussion about Marvel’s latest Avengers-related assembly. If you want to avoid spoilers, stop listening at the 8:25 mark of the podcast and then pick it up again at 34:44.
But Age of Ultron isn’t all we’re talking about this week. We also cover the new Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts film, While We’re Young for a quick review. We also cover the latest movie news, including the recent 21 Jump Street crossover, the AMC Star Wars marathon, and more.
Later in the show, we try to decide what the best trailer is for the worst movie. Don’t forget to add your suggestion to the comments!
We’ve all watched that trailer. It gives away the whole movie, including key plot twists. Sometimes you watch a trailer that isn’t even close to what you get in the real movie (we’re looking at you Frozen and Kangaroo Jack).
And sometimes, a movie trailer is just plain bad, even though the movie itself is quite good. Well this week on the Now Conspiring Podcast, Maria and I delve into what makes our trailers, well trailers. Is it money? Greed? Power? Greedy power? We discuss.
Later in the show, we quickly review Paddington, American Sniper, and Blackhat. And we also cover this week’s movie news, including our thoughts on the Oscars, the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, and more.
Stick around for our Netflix Recommendation of the Week, and as always, we finish the show with new Movie Releases coming this weekend.
