Man Cave Movie NightDec 04, 2023
This week we take it back to the times and places and media that make us oh so longing for the past while resenting the present. Listen and enjoy.
129. Spirit Animals
We ask some crazy random questions this week that are gonna make you say, "wow, that was sooooo random RAWR XD"
We talk about entertainment that started out strong and then went bad, which franchises should be rebooted, and the spirit animals of actors.
Rate us five stars or wake up to some slashed tires, ya rats.
128. The State of the MCU, The Marvels, and Loki Season 2
This week we've got a lot to talk about in terms of Marvel and recent MCU content and what we think should be done in the months and years to come as the content has stalled and become much less exciting and engaging and good as it has been in recent years.
127. Hidden Gems
Not Hidden Figures, and not Uncut Gems. We're in our hipster era this week, and we talk about stuff that we think you've probably never heard of. Rate us 5 stars, you absolute cowards.
126. Autumn Spooktacular
This is a goofy episode where we don't even begin to talk about the topic (which is already pretty loose) until about twenty minutes in and then we immediately get side-tracked again and pretty much spend the whole time goofin and gaffin. Anyways, we hope you enjoy it all the same.
125. Severance Season 1 with Ian James Martin
As in the genre of movie... Or as in the album? Guess you'll have to listen and find out how much we talk about one or the other or maybe even both.
This week we have lots of fun talking about what makes monsters so appealing, why we love to hate them or love to love them and we even come up with the best possible monster for a monster movie as well which was really fun and the one we came up with will win awards for being so good.
122. True Crime
DISCLAIMER: Man Cave Movie Night does not support crime in any way. We don't commit crime, nor do we think it'd be good or fun to do so. Please do not commit crime or leave this episode with the impression that crime is good or that we support it. It's not and we don't. It's very bad. If you are considering participating in crime in any fashion, don't.
What is a mystery? Wouldn't you like to know.
120. "Pitch a serious property as a comedy?" & More
