That Thing You Like

BOOKSMART is the movie of the year. Best picture winner, 2019, already locked up. Alright, this might be a small exaggeration. But BOOKSMART rules! Brian saw it on release and has been evangelical about it ever since! Chris finally saw it and now also knows the joy! We talk Olivia Wilde's directing debut, the incredible characters of Molly and Amy, the pitch perfect soundtrack, and debate the nature of cringe comedy. Let's get (consensually) bashed!

That Thing You Like

The BON APPETIT brand has been making YouTube videos for years - so why are they taking off now? And why are we helplessly in love with them? In this ep, we celebrate the charming, Springfield-esque nature of the Test Kitchen, talk Bon Appetit's strong blend of personalities, and even do a rarely seen That Thing You Like draft to build our own three person cooking teams! Basically, we love Claire and Brad and Chris and all of them forever. Enjoy the lovefest.

That Thing You Like

HBO's DEADWOOD was a Good+ show taken before its time. One Brian and Chris both love and have never really had the chance to talk about. But good news: 2019 saw the release of the long rumoured Deadwood movie! And it's FANTASTIC. (Brian cried.) We talk about wrapping up loose ends 13 years later and poignant grace notes for Al, Bullock and Trixie, plus the dialogue that's never been better. Fan of Deadwood? Did you love the movie? Or maybe hate it? Let us know on Twitter @TTYLshow!

244 - Us show art 244 - Us

That Thing You Like

Jordan Peele's US is a wonder of a film, and maybe even more fun to pull apart than Get Out? After both seeing it a little belatedly, we sit down to celebrate the INCREDIBLE performance of Lupita Nyong'o and how the movie makes you complicit in cheering on oppression, and once again return to "elevated horror" as a bad term. Watch Us! Let us know what you thought of Us!

That Thing You Like

Pokemon DETECTIVE PIKACHU is the live action Pokemon movie we all wanted when we were kids. Back when we wanted to be the very best. Like NO ONE ever was! We talk about Ryme City and its incredibly fully realized world, the Ryan Reynolds voice vs Pikachu cuteness, our thoughts on Pokemon that aren't the original 151, and decide which Pokemon we would be our Pokemon partners! Enjoy!

That Thing You Like

AVENGERS: ENDGAME is still fresh in our mind, if somewhat less fresh fresh in our hearts. So we thought - why not OPEN THE PORTALS and bring all of our Marvel friends together for one last Phases 1-3 ride. We're joined by brother of the show Andy Shirlaw to build a CONSENSUS ranking of the Marvel movies. We all have to agree! No voting! People make arguments! It's fun to argue about lists! It's even more fun to build them!

That Thing You Like

Marvel's AVENGERS: ENDGAME marks the end of an era. An era that's continuing with other Avengers? We sit down after our great disliking of Avengers: Infinity War to talk about everything we were surprised to LOVE AND ADORE about Endgame! The core Avengers! The most dramatic flash forward in cinematic history! The Leftovers of it all! The great character moments! And oh, the tears we shed.

That Thing You Like

GAME OF THRONES time, for one of the last times! The Long Night is here, certain people have become Knights of the Seven Kingdoms, and all draws to a dragon-filled conclusion. How do we feel about Game of Thrones Season 8 so far? Who will sit the Iron Throne, and more importantly, who would we vote for in an election? Who could they still kill that would be shocking? All this, plus thoughts on the entire Game of Thrones experience!

239 - Captain Marvel show art 239 - Captain Marvel

That Thing You Like

Marvel's CAPTAIN MARVEL smashed the box-office, and the man-baby tears were as delicious as ever. It's 2019, and a female-led Marvel superhero movie was WAY overdue... but why are we kind of split on this one? In this ep, we give our Captain Marvel review with full spoilers, talk about the surprisingly heady use of microaggressions and gaslighting as villainy, and touch on its VERY interesting ideas about war refugees and a Skrull diaspora.

238 - Hereditary show art 238 - Hereditary

That Thing You Like

HEREDITARY, Ari Aster's 2018 horror movie, probably should have earned Toni Collette an Oscar nomination. It didn't! Because there's no justice and Paimon reigns. We review a horror movie that transcends horror, talk about the film's incredible use of tension, and sing the praises of #WokePaimon.
