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?

Tagged , , , , ,

It was the night of the biggest sports game in the country. Millions upon millions watched the one team go and defeat the other one. There was a bird one and a soldier one or something like that. Anyway, a commercial popped up informing everyone that right after the ball was done being foot’d, Netflix was going to take over millions of living rooms with the third in the Cloverfield Series.

So with social media abuzz over it, of course the Somethings watched it and have opinions!

So how was it? What was it? How does it relate? Did JJ Abrams give us another Super 8, or another Lost?

Joining us this week to talk all things Clover are old Something Friends, Katie Cullen (@kiaxet) & Megan Salinas (@themenguin) from both AfterBuzz TV and their horror podcast, Silver Screams (@silver_screams) which you can find on Youtube!

So strap in to the first big viral sensation of the year and see how it ranks.
