Today we discuss movies that grew on us over time. Whether it be just by coming back to them as adults or coming back to them with different expectations, the point is that all these films were ones we once loathed and now do not. We also go over some of our listeners answers to this question that we got from Facebook!

Today we talk about our first experiences with Wes Anderson’s stop motion filmmaking with Isle Of Dogs, appreciating how hosting the show has exposed us to so many different kinds of directors and styles of films that we never would have watched had we not done the podcast. We hope that you’ll go see films that are out of your wheelhouse as well, and come back to listen to today’s episode of the Stale Popcorn Podcast!

⚬ Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? That’s what we’re asking you today on this episode as we discuss the latest film starring the People’s Champ, Rampage. Jordan saw this one, and even though Josh didn’t see it, he feels like he’s probably seen it before with some variation here and there.

⚬ WrestleMania was last week, and Josh was able to convince Jordan to give it a try. Is Jordan now the biggest wrestling fan this side of the Stale Popcorn Podcast? Or was this just a one-off? And if we were wrestlers, what would our catchphrases be? Let’s see if Jordan can create one on the spot. Because Josh has young children, his would likely be some form of, “It’s time to flush the toilet,” and his finisher would most definitely be, “THE TOILET BOMB!” Let’s get that trademarked as soon as possible.

⚬ Speaking more on The Rock, which version do we prefer? Is it early, learning-the-acting-ropes Rock, where we were treated to such gems as The Tooth Fairy, Walking Tall, The Game Plan, and The Rundown? Or would we rather watch this current iteration of the Great One, the one that rips turret guns off of helicopters or flexes enough to break through an arm cast? We have an answer to this question, and it may surprise you.

⚬ As always, thanks for listening! Now go and be the best version of YOU! Or we’ll lay the smack down on you!
