Welcome to episode 182, and on this one we’re discussing Toy Story 4, Secret Life of Pets 2, Dark Phoenix, and more on Stale Popcorn. Have a great week!
Welcome to the latest episode of Stale Popcorn! We hope you enjoy our back-and-forth banter today about the latest happenings in the world of film and entertainment!
Happy Memorial Day! We want to take a moment to thank all the men and women who serve our country, who put their lives on the line for our freedom every single day. Thank you to them, thank you to their families, and we wish you a wonderful day today.
On today’s episode, we’re discussing the latest film in the Star Wars universe, “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” and to be totally honest with you right at the top of this, we have to say we loved it. We’re not going to mince words here; if you are someone who disagrees with the direction Disney is taking with this franchise, it may be time for you to move on. But if you want to hear a fun take on the latest film, give us a listen and let us know what you think!
‘Til we meet again!
We’re back on this week’s episode reviewing one of the most anticipated films of all-time, Avengers: Infinity War. We trust that you’ve seen the film already, but if you haven’t, make sure to skip out on this particular episode until you do see it. Other than that, sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode!
⚬ 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!
Black Panther is the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we give our spoiler-free review. If you love MCU films, you’ll find so many things to enjoy about this movie, starting with the strong world building and ending with a third act that rivals anything else we’ve seen from a superhero film.
