A teen is transported back in time to the night of a series of brutal killings and works with her own mother to stop them in Nahnatchka Khan’s Totally Killer.
Another month is behind us and with it was a strangely small list of news and trailers for us to break down. We discuss TV reboots, Star Wars alterations and dreaming about Nicolas Cage.
Kneel Before Pod takes the recent Disney+ Marvel TV show Secret Invasion to task. The conversation covers thoughtless messaging, characterising Nick Fury and MCU consequences.
The Flash finally released after many years of delays and alterations so we just had to talk about it. The conversation covers nostalgia, subjective enjoyment and babies in microwaves.
August is over but it contained a wealth of trailers and news. The conversation covers fan entitlement/gatekeeping, unnecessary revivals and Snyder cuts, yes plural.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse provided a seemingly endless list of topics to discuss and we attempted to discuss some of them. The conversation covers breathtaking animation, parental relationships and the canon!
EIFF 2023 – Chuck Chuck Baby
A woman stuck in an inescapable living situation reconsiders her place when an unrequited love returns to town in Janis Pugh’s Chuck Chuck Baby.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 closes out James Gunn’s trilogy and Kneel Before Pod is here to discuss it. The conversation covers exposition, subjective comedy and characters changing between films.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds ends its second season with a Gorn attack and a fight for survival.
After months of adventuring, a brave party returns from seeing Honor Among Thieves to discuss the film – but with a twist, as their own dungeon adventure is captured here: classes show off their skills, D20s are rolled and one party member reveals his willingness to sell his soul for early access and swag, all on the way to defeating the most-heinous of all villains in the realms of storytelling (in the Dungeon Master’s opinion at least).
On their way to victory, they also discuss story that has heart, a potentially-successful application of current gender politics and their collective delight at finding a good fantasy film among the wilderness of today’s offerings – oh, and a film adaptation of a game that actually works…? Madness!
