Nine Fingers in LA
Summary: A Podcast about Movies! Produced by a group of friends who are movie obsessed =)
Our local store had way too many Peep flavors, so we decided to do a taste test on the Podcast! After that we talk about two movies that have many twists, with the sci-fi revolution Captive State and the all-star cast anchoring Triple Frontier for Netflix.
We go through our most anticipated movies for the Spring Season 2019! As always we know that we haven't talked about every movie, and release dates can change at any point, but these are the movies that we are excited to potentially see in the coming months.
We do a deep dive on our thoughts on the latest film in the MCU, Captain Marvel. While the movie was fine, it definitely has some issues or shortcomings that we dive into. At 29:40 we discuss some spoilers on what happened in Captain Marvel and how that might tie into the larger MCU so if you don't want 10 minutes of small spoilers, skip ahead to 40:00
We utilize the doldrums of February to talk about our reactions to the 91st Academy Awards, and also celebrate our one year Podcast Anniversary discussing how our movie viewing habits have changed. We also have a big announcement that will change how the shows operates going forward!
Bit of a slow week as we are waiting for major releases in March to start hitting. We are baffled by the shot for shot remake that is Cold Pursuit, but are pleased by the solid underdog story that is Fighting With My Family. Then while adding some new members to the Pyramid, we discuss movies that we could watch endlessly. Please email us at email@example.com to let us know what movies are go to films for your rewatching pleasure.
Our panel of "experts" give you their thoughts on who will win the major awards at the 2019 Academy Awards, and the films that SHOULD win if they were in charge. We also talk about Bradley Cooper way too much. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for all your thoughts on the 2019 Oscars.
After our vacation hiatus, our team of movie lovers is back and ready to review some films! Kristen talks through all of the films she watched on her own the past two weeks including Free Solo, The Upside, Velvet Buzzsaw and more. Afterwards we talk about our Valentine's Day group date to see Isn't It Romantic, and then the monumental disappointment that is Alita: Battle Angel.
So I guess you could say we watched movies this week? Kristen lets us know about the baffling Mortal Engines, we go full SPOILERCAST on the new Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway film Serenity, and then we breakdown the surprises and the snubs from the Oscar Nominations.
Awards season is upon us, and we have opinions on what we think will get nominated at the 92nd annual Academy Awards. This was a tough exercise in that our hearts want very different things than what the Academy usually nominates. All three of us made predictions for various categories and we walk you through what we agreed on as a group, and where we differed and what our thought process was. Listen to this before the nominations are announced to get ready, or listen after the nominations are announced to see how many we got wrong.
A snow storm tried to derail our podcast recording this week, but nothing gets in the way of telling our fine listeners about movies! This week Kristen gives us the low-down on the Nicole Kidman revenge story Destroyer, we ride the roller coaster of quality that is Glass, and then we all watched the 2018 "remake" of Suspiria which just has a lovely cult in it. All that, more inductions into the Pyramid and so much more!
We've hit the desolate, barren tundra that is January movies, but we pressed on anyways! This week we see Keanu Reeves spit ludicrous techno-babble at us with Replicas, discuss the cultural phenomenon that is Bird Box, and discuss Bradley Cooper's awful suit and Rami Malek trying to get Nicole Kidman's attention at the Golden Globes.
It's the first week of 2019 so we decide to catch up on films from 2018! We talk about the heavy but beautifully done If Beale Street Could Talk, the next film from acclaimed director Barry Jenkins who last did Moonlight. To lighten the mood up, we get together in a small theater and see the horror / thriller film Escape Room which is fantastic and exactly what you think it is.
We spent a lot of time in our first part of the 2018 Personal Awards, crapping on a lot of really poor films and trends. This time around though, we really want to highlight all the best films that we saw and some of the greatest coincidences that we noticed. This episode we give out our awards for: 2018 Coincidence Award, Best Trailer, Best Pantsuit, Best Performance, Worst Movie, Top 10 Movies of the Year, Best Movie
It's the first day of 2019 so let's talk about all the best and worst movies from 2018. This episode we give out our awards for: Old Movie of the Year, Most Overhyped, Biggest Waste of Technology, Best Surprise, Worst Surprise, 2nd Annual Sam Worthington Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Mediocrity
Last podcast of the year! Thanks to everyone for making it a wonderful 2018 of lots of movies and fun. We ring in the new year by taking a deep dive with Aquaman, and get our political hands dirty with Vice.
