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
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?
There is an infamous place in New Jersey, home of the Somethings, that had the nickname of Traction Park.
This amusement park was known for its bad management and injury prone nature.. and yet we all went as a right of passage.
Take that information and welcome to Action Point, a movie inspired by the world of Action Park and taken and pushed through a Jackass fueled blender.
What did the Somethings thing? Did they walk away with busted up ribs from laughter or chip a tooth from grinding their teeth in anger…. only one way to find out – check out #10 of Something In Review – ACTION POINT!
A group of people who have seemingly never met all gather together, invited by the mysterious Mr. Boddy.
What we find out from there is how much they do know about each other and what they hold over each other’s heads….
Unendingly quotable and beloved by everyone with good taste, this movie made form a boardgame should not have ever been as good as it ended up… but here we are.
So count your bullets (1+1+2+1…) and douse the flames on the side of your head, we’re giving you Something In Review #9: Clue.
It’s Hatton’s Birthday Month, so we decided to talk about one of his favorite movies of all time.
What happens when a brilliant mad man opens up his chocolate factory for the first time in years? Oh, a bunch of kids get tortured… basic stuff. And please note, we’re talking about the 70’s Gene Wilder version because that is the only version.
Get ready for a little Pure Imagination… with Something In Review #8: Willy Wonka
