|Oh, but Peter Jackson did... he definitely did.|
...so an annual tradition is born... again... we call it DeuceGiving!!
We are honored, first, as Shaz and Jedi Shua from The TechnoRetro Dads podcast calls in and enjoys an easy round of Simple Star Wars Trivia, a game that we hadn't played in quite a while, but Mikey was excited to get another crack at, while P!nky did it for the first time. So, if nothing else, Shaz & Shua make this episode worth it!
Then, we tell the world what we are truly thankful for in the movie universe, everything from Marvel movies to Amy Adams (who d$ is in love with) to the finality of Hobbit movies... its a celebration of appreciation for theatrical awesomeness.
A new way to assign movies just for this Christmas time, as we draw out of a hat the titles of the 6 worst Christmas movies we could find on Netflix... find out who is forced to see Santa Claus vs The Martians and who will be forced to watch some randomness subtitled Danger in the Manger. And that might be the cream of the crop...
Finally, a rousing discussion of Hollywood awards, and whether we feel that "message movies" with perhaps decent performances is more highly regarded than a "original film" with great performances... and be surprised by the trends over the last few years, especially in Best Actress.
Join us next week as well when we do our monthly ReFlicktions, covering everything from "Birdman" to "Interstellar" to "Big Hero 6" to the problem with Ice Cube in "Ride Along"--and find out what Pinky truly thought about his latest Pretty in Pink assignment...
