Greg’s pick for Time Travel Month Part II (AKA Neal McDonough Month) takes Lauren to the far and not so far future with Star Trek: First Contact. As Lauren is introduced for the first time to the characters from The Next Generation we discover the heavy reliance this film has upon prior knowledge of the television series. We also try to dissect the logic of the Borg, dive into Data’s sexcapade, and share our love for the unsung star of this film, Alfre Woodard. Music by bensound.com

Episode 59: Timeline

For Time Travel Month part 2, Lauren decided to take Greg all the way back to 2003 to show him Timeline. Apart from praising this film for the parts of time travel it does right, our hosts dive into topics such as the deadly truth behind teleporting time travel, faulty medieval technology, and seriously questions the career choices of Gerard Butler.

Episode 58: Haywire

For Lauren’s pick for Bad Movie Month, she tries to outdo Greg’s love for Bad Movies with 2011’s Haywire. As we try to make sense out of this half-baked movie, we discuss the pros and cons of casting an MMA fighter to act in a movie, overly convoluted and poorly executed revenge plans, and how no matter how many big-name actors you throw into a movie, it can’t make up for a plot and story that is so full of holes that makes it nearly unwatchable.

Episode 57: BASEketball

For Bad Movie Month, Greg shows Lauren one of his favorite pre-adolescent films with a matching sense of humor, Baseketball. We discuss the missed opportunities for female and para-athletes in the sport that "anyone can play", questionable team names and themes, and cringe-worthy 90's references and attitudes towards women and LGBT individuals.

Episode 56: About Time

Our next time travel movie is 2013’s About Time. As we discuss this film with a unique method and scope of time travel we discuss how the protagonist Tim could have used his powers, Greg has a serious misunderstanding about the rules of the film and together we ask, “Is it cheating if it’s in an alternate timeline?”

For our first Time Travel movie of this year, Greg takes Lauren back to 2007 to see Disney’s Meet the Robinsons. Together we try to figure out the neglectful nature of adults in this world, the weird love relationship between a man and his hat, and Greg tries to help Lauren navigate the paradoxical timeline and equally confusing Robinson family tree. Also stay tuned for a special bonus cross over with Friday is Game Night!

Episode 54: Heathers

Lauren makes Greg lose his mind over the 1988 dark comedy Heathers. As we try to follow the violent plot of this film, we talk about awkward Parent-Child relationships, the tragedy of Marth ‘Dumptruck’ Dunstock, darker alternate endings, and ask the question ‘Does this movie work considering the recent rise in school violence?’.

For Greg’s first movie of 2018, he shows Lauren 1985’s The Man with One Red Shoe. For this spy vs. spy comedy, our hosts talk about the clueless nature of Tom Hanks, the underutilization of Carrie Fischer at the peak of her popularity, and the impossibly terrible agents of the CIA.
