This week on Now Conspiring, Jon is joined by the infamous Now Conspirer to review Luke Cage, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and the inclusion of Groupon product placement in indie podcast episodes. And as always, we read your comments and answer your questions from last week’s show before talking about the new movies coming out next week.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: VOTE! If the only Presidential candidates were Now Conspiring hosts, who would you vote for? Here are the candidates:
Hey conspiracy cats, this week we review The Magnificent Seven, Storks, and Queen of Katwe. But honestly, we spend most of our time talking about…mansplaining? The internet? Our patronuses? Look, you listen to this podcast for a reason, and Dumbledore help us, we don’t know exactly what that reason really is.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: How would you describe yourself using three fictional characters?
Hey podcast friends, welcome to an all-new Now Conspiring. This week, we review Snowden, the new Oliver Stone film about, you guessed it, political intrigue at the turn of the 21st Century. Also, we get into some Show & Tell and talk about Fall movies we’re looking forward to before jumping into your feedback from last week’s episode.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What’s an embarrassing or funny/weird thing you’ve experienced or witnessed at a movie theater?
This week on the podcast, we reviewed the first Tom Hanks/Clint Eastwood collaboration movie, Sully. Plus, we did another round of “Show and Tell,” the segment where we go into depth about what we’ve been watching/reading/doing this week.
This is super important. If 30 unique users leave at least 30 comments, we’ll show you the embarrassing pictures of Adonis’s pool party next week. And…go! (#Adogoneswimmin)
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What’s your favorite biopic (biographical film)?
So we did talk about The Light Between Oceans and Morgan and even Southside with You this week on the Now Conspiring podcast, but not as featured reviews. No, we spent a good amount of time looking back on the year as a part of a whole before we move into the fall season. And we want all of you to judge which one of us “wins” the debate.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Who do you think had the best pick for Best and Worst movies? It’s between CJ, Will, Kayla, and Jon.
This week on Now Conspiring, we review Don’t Breathe and discuss what it’s like to be on a podcast that is officially past its 100-episode prime. Plus, Jon and Adonis have a racially sensitive discussion about Telemundo for some reason, which somehow relates to the Mary Jane Watson casting rumor/controversy everyone finds interesting (except for Sam).
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What movie (or movies) should Jon add to his DVD bookshelf?
For our 100th episode of the Now Conspiring podcast, we decided to…review Kubo and the Two Strings!
OK, that’s not all we did. To celebrate this arbitrary milestone, we started a new tradition: a variation of the Now Conspiring Game Show — introducing the Now Conspiring Movie Quote Trivia Challenge!
Also, we make lame jokes, talk about how much we like each other (and movies, I guess), read your comments from last week’s show, play the Now Conspiring theme song on ukulele for some reason, and talk about what’s coming soon to theaters this coming week.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: At what point did you start listening to Now Conspiring, and WHY?
