The Summer has come to an end, sadly. With that goes the big summer popcorn slinging monster cost movies that seem to bring in not just the bacon, but the whole damn pig farm.
Rob & Hatton have talked at ends about some of their favorite movies, of which quite a few were blockbusters of the Summer, but they have never settled in and simply talked about Summer Blockbusters as a concept.
So without further blather, please – get your sunscreen on, a giant tub of popcorn, the bag of sour patch kids you heisted in your back pocket, your wheelbarrow full of soda, and lets get to talking about some of the biggest movies money can buy.
For the last of our Year Six celebrations, we are going back…. but this time, to the end.
That’s right, the Somethings are back and they are flying on an Oceanic Flight with the last episode of the show that started a thousand arguments… Lost.
But we’re not going alone, oh no no no, if we’re going to face the Smoke Monster and the strange purgatory-not-purgatory spiritual-not-spiritual culmination of the ‘is it faith or is it science or is it Memorex’ island… we got long time show friends Rick & Sarah of AwesomeTalk TV. So after you’re done here, go see their newest episode over on YouTube!
But right now.. settle in.. it’s one more number in the Valenzetti Equation.. it’s … The End: Lost.
Ok, not really. You see, we are getting a lot of stuff for free these days. Need to know the weather? Sure! Want to play a silly little Facebook game? Ok! Want to see a photo of you as a bunny or an older bunny? Why not!?
Truth is – you are paying – we all are… and something as silly as online surveys and photo filters may have much bigger repercussions than you ever thought.
We’re talking the documentary The Great Hack, the story of Cambridge Analytics and how they may have created the political landscape we’re living in…. wow, that was so much more serious than our usual entries.
Don’t worry, we still make the same stupid jokes on Something In Review: The Great Hack
The Somethings are celebrating their 6th Year with some friends!
That’s right, to bring in our next 52 weeks of funny, we have brought in long time friends of the show PRL.
Matt, Joe, and Becky have been with us for a long time and we are thrilled to get their input on what’s going on in the Upside Down as we talk about this year’s edition of the Strangest of all Things: STRANGER THINGS.
So settle in for an extra long episode that most definitely stays completely on topic – and then go listen in as PRL get themselves ready for their relaunch.
Note – Friend of the show and regular guest Alexis Torres is currently going through some medical issues. You can read all of the details at her GoFundMe. In support of our friend, all profits from items purchased from our TeePublic store will be donated. Get well soon Alexis.
It’s the extra week of the month, so it is time for us to add a little something extra to the mix.
Have you missed Hatton? It’s ok to admit only a little.. well he is back this week to celebrate the most favoritiest place of the Something’s world… New Jersey.
From the mysteries to the outrageous to the legendary – NJ has a lot of stories going on. In the top 20% for population and bottom 10% for size – we are a dense locale filled with a little bit of everything.
So hang out with the Somethings as we tell you what Exit you can stick it, gnaw on some pork roll from Central NJ (that last one just got a couple people really ticked off) – and discuss NJ ODDITIES.
One of the things we love about The End is that it gives us a chance to talk about shows we might not have ever had a chance.
Travelers, a science fiction show about time travel and the ramifications of it all only has a few seasons and then it is done… but should it have been? Did it end on a high note, a low note, or was it just a show that came and went and we move on?
Well Hatton and Rob have stuff to say about it – and now you get to hear it. If you’ve never seen the show though, might want to wait on this one.
There are movies that the Somethings agree about… Highlander. There are movies that the Somethings disagree about… Mars Attacks.
The Invitation definitely fits into one of those categories.
A group of people are invited (get it?) to a dinner party where they haven’t seen each other in quite a long time and have a sordid history. So why are they there? Is it supposed to feel so uncomfortable? Are they getting suckered into buying Amway?
