Episode 113: Diagnosis, Puberty

Diagnosis, Puberty

Find out about TJ and Joe’s differing view on ‘Big Hero 6’ — even if they both liked it. TJ liked it a lot more than Joe did it seems. But they can both agree it’s a great film and representative of the good influence John Lasseter is having over at Disney Animation Studio. Also find out about some follow up from last week having to do with Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ sound issues. Other items on the docket include Playmobil coming out with their own toy movie (because they want a piece of that pie too!), James Gunn talking about a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ trilogy, the ‘Peanuts’ official trailer, ‘Night at the Museum 3’ trailer, and ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ trailer.

  • ‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ Trailer

    I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about a third installment in this franchise. I was quite pleasantly surprised by both of the previous films, so maybe I should have had a little faith.

    I continue to hold out very little hope that in terms of the Biblical narrative this will actually be a good film. I expect it to be unfaithful to the text. But at the same time, I doubt it will be as bad as Noah was.
