Movie Walkie Talkie #35 (05/17/19)
In this episode: Adam goes deep into some of his favorite scores of all time!
00:00-1:23:31 For many soundtrack and score people, this episode is for you! Now there many be a handful of films that you weren’t thinking of showing up on this list, along with many that you’ll be like “what about THAT score??” These are just the film scores that resonate with me and that I’ve enjoyed for many years. No offense to Jaws or The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - those are super iconic scores, but I just NEVER jump to Spotify to listen to those on repeat. Some scores are iconic for how they impact the film, but this list is almost a playlist in a way, highlighting my favorite pieces of music and pretending that the films themselves aren’t related or connected. Enjoy!
Movie Walkie Talkie #34 (05/10/19)
In this episode: The two birds talk some old school video games, including some of our favorite SNES, N64, and early Xbox/PS games that were strictly based off of movies and their plots pretty faithfully. What happened? Why can’t I buy a Man of Steel game? Where’s my Avengers: Infinity War game that allows me to play through the whole movie as various heroes? In this episode we talk about it!
00:00-39:51 Video games are fun! But video games with direct movie plots, characters, and environments, it brings out an extra special feeling that combines our love for both mediums. Over the years, video games and movies have seemed to become ever so distant from each other. Brooks and Adam try to find an explanation for this on episode 34!

00:00-07:00 To begin, we talk about Office Space and it’s 20 year anniversary, and a little bit of This Is Us for some fun pre-show banter.
The Office is the best comedy show of all time! The two birds laugh their way through an episode that remembers the best pranks of the show during its nine season run.

Movie Walkie Talkie #31 (04/19/19)
In this episode: With the reveal of Episode IX bringing back Emperor Palpatine, I wanted to go into my thoughts on this, as he is by far my favorite character in Star Wars.

Movie Walkie Talkie #29 (04/07/19)
In this episode: Brooks and Adam are newly hired executives at the DC division of Warner Brothers. It’s 2011 and time to reboot Superman, so we might as well plan out a universe similar to what Marvel looks to be doing. We can hire Zack Snyder and other visionary directors to give the universe a darker, more gritty tone like the Dark Knight, but format it in a way to where we can build the universe slowly and develop our heroes. Let’s cast our dream Justice League and also order the films in a way to where we can achieve the highest possible
00:00-14:15 The second trailer came out for Brightburn! The James Gunn Superman-esque horror film, plus some Suicide Squad 2 casting news.
14:15-1:07:26 You get to get a “birdseye” view of our first meeting as WB execs, and we are tasked with casting a Justice League and also structuring the films to flow and build so that when we get to Justice League, it’s an epic team up, 6-7 years in the making. We really like our new jobs! The break room has TWO coffee makers!

00:00-26:02 A quick discussion about the DCEU’s most divisive film to date, and the one that single handedly forced WB’s hand to copy the tone of Marvel with Justice League. This film had some AMAZING SCENES, but let’s dissect which elements of this experiment worked and which didn’t. PS. This is the only “sequel” we’ve gotten for Superman, since Justice League he wasn’t an actual character.

In this episode: Adam reminisces about his favorite Mummy movie, the 1999 one!

Movie Walkie Talkie #6 (09/21/18 - 09/28/18)
In this episode: Adam rants about just how insanely bad the Jurassic Park/World franchise has become, and this movie especially goes off the rails more than ever. Jurassic Park is one of my all time favorite films, and even the Lost World still had a lot of great direction by Spielberg and score by John Williams. Jurassic Park 3 is bad too, but more of a fun TV movie version of the original, Jurassic World had a lot of potential and some cool Dinos but the characters and story doesn’t work. By 2018, we are still stretching out this franchise like gluten mixed with molasses. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is AWFUL. Check this out only if you slightly agree with this assessment or you may not enjoy this ;)
