The year is 1998, mankind has discovered a possible alien craft, the plan is to skim over a report written by a psychologist 20 years earlier and hastily assemble a crack squad of civilians to board the ship. Amongst them will be a mentally unstable biologist and her ex boyfriend because they simply had no time to conduct background searches on any of these critically important people. That’s right, we’re talking Sphere. Join us as we try to find out what makes Jerry happy, presumably it’s plot holes. We’re happy to Get to the Podcast this week, so don’t be scared and dive in!
Emergency podcast mode activate! It took us longer than expected to get this week's episode in the can but we got to the podcast regardless. This week The Bone Collector is our film and let us say, it's terrible. Denzel decided that while making a boxing movie he could make a second movie where he lays down in a bed the whole time to recover from his boxing scenes. The results are about what you'd expect. Angelina Jolie also stars as the classic trope of the ex-supermodel turned cop who also doesn't want to really solve crimes or be involved in anything that might be upsetting to her, of course. Also, a man fights a quadriplegic...and loses.
This week on GTTP we're diving right into the 2017 MASTERPIECE The Snowman! Poor poor Michael Fassbender... you know not what you've done. Topics include: the curious case of Val Kilmer, the behind the scenes turmoil that lead to this disaster, and a frank discussion of the character's accents in the film. Time to buckle up and Get to the Podcast!!
Woah. This week GTTP revisits one of the most influential sci fi/action movies of all time: The Matrix. Did the sequels ruin their enjoyment of the original? Was Keanu Reeves' stiff as a board Neo personality a choice or was he just... a stiff? Is the movie's existence worth all the terrible knock offs it inspired? All that and much more in this week’s edition of Get to the Podcast.
