Something In Review: The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T

Tagged , ,

Well – we now have a record for ‘The Oldest Movie’ that we have ever reviewed in The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T – which is a movie that was put together by noneother than Dr. Seuss… and it shows a couple of things:

  • With a good name behind it, you can make anything!
  • There’s a reason Seuss only did cartoon movies in his later years

A weird collection of acid trip fever dreams, pulls from other more famous movies, but a LOT of interesting stage and set design and one amazing song… Dr T is a thing we saw, and you should too.. just to say you did.

So join us and the Aquabats (No, they’re not on the show) as we talk Dr. T and what it all really means.

Ok, here we go!

Something In Review: Children of the Corn

Tagged , , ,

If there is one sect of the movieverse we don’t touch on a lot – it is horror. That’s not because we don’t love horror.. Hatton has spent most of this quarantine binge watching Shudder – so we’re going to do our best to change that a little bit moving forward.

Enter Children of the Corn: Part 1, with an eventual desire to do all of the other parts. Is this classic horror movie worth a cob? We get into that and a whole lot more about things completely unrelated to Children and Corn….

And – after the episode is over, be sure to stick around as CHAPTER 4 of STORIES TO AMAZE starts right after that!

Ok, here we go!

Have you checked out Livestream For The Cure yet? You should.

It’s time to return to head on back to a long time ago and take a trip to a galaxy not nearby at all….

That’s right – the Somethings, always present and ready with the cutting edge commentary – are ready to talk Star Wars. If you are a Wars’y type, you likely have your opinion on whether Abrams & The Mouse nailed it, missed it, or middled it… but now you get to find out how much you disagree with two other guys on the internet!

So gather your Sith Powers (or Jedi Powers, I guess…) and get ready to boldly go where every other podcast has gone before already! It’s time to review The Rise of Skywalker! (..or is it The Skywalkers?) ..it doesn’t matter. (..and stick around, the end has a treat)

Ok, here we go!

Mark your calendars: Livestream For The Cure, May 28th – 31st.

We’re heading out into deep seas this month for a “documentary” with a twist.. also a title so long it doesn’t fit in the title bar.

This journey is one of art, one of curiosity, and it is a divisive piece of cinema. If you don’t know anything about it – we get in there, so you’ve been warned this is a spoiler of an episode, perhaps more than usual.

That said – join PC Rob, Hatton, and Edmund Fitzgerald as we go spelunking deep into the abyss.

Ok, here we go…

♫ Creature of the niiiiight….

That’s right – it’s time for the Somethings to deep deep deep dive into the BBC’s newest horror piece, Dracula.

We can’t do it alone – so we got ahold of one of the Something Alums in Megan Salinas (@TheMenguin) – cohost of Silver Screams and No Love Lost

Is this the same powerhouse that was Jekyll? It’s got the same team, as well as longtime Dr. Who showrunner in Stevan Moffat… so why don’t we take a ship across the country and tell you all what Hatton & PCR think.

Ok, here we Count Blah!

In Review: El Camino

We gotta go back…

No no no, not to THERE… to the world of Breaking Bad. We weren’t left with many questions at the end of Walt’s journey, but we did have one big one.

…what happened to Jesse?

Not only does El Camino fill that in – but a few gaps we never thought to ask.

Does it compare with baby blue? The Somethings are here to tell you.

Happy Holidays!

Sure, it’s early, but we’re taking next month off – so we gotta get it in somewhere.

And since everyone is getting themselves all stuff prepared, we decided to hit a a movie that had a strange beginning, but has found its place as a Christmas Traditional for weirdos… it is the scariest Christmas Carol ever put to film – SCROOGED! (I heard an old lady had a heart attack)

So join in the festivities as the Somethings discuss whether this was a well-received holiday tradition (like cranberries in a can) – or the kind of thing you tolerate just because it’s the holidays (like hugging the weird aunt that always smells like cat pee)

It’s time to be visited by three ghosts and two Somethings, so you best change your ways…. Scrooged!

Listen, toooo that magic man…
and abracadabra…

There is this movie – this movie that a lot of people saw and nobody remembers it until they are told about it by someone who has been awoken. I’m sure there are a lot of movies that fit this strange Mandela Effect sort of situation, but this one is special…. well, mostly because it is a hallmark movie in Hatton’s life and that of his sister.

So she recommended we review this – what happens when nostalgia meets a complete newbie to strange Canadian Fantasy Drama.

This is the strange and mysterious tale, featuring Celine Dion and Tigh Saul from BSG… it’s the only answer you can solve with hair…

Haaaack The Plaaannetttt

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
