Signed up for MoviePass almost a month ago and still waiting for them to send me my card...

 

So many movies I want to see (especially It). Guess they're super slammed with the whole world subscribing at the same time.

Did you end up getting this? How is it?

 

I've had movie pass for a few months now, and no issues. It's largely the reason for my enhanced quantity of movie-goings.

It did take a little over 3 weeks to a month to get mine as well, but this was back when it was announced.

I started doing a talk-show-esq segment on my campus' radio station aptly named "The Reel Deal" where I talk movies with a good friend of mine. As such, I've started watching more and more movies, even just casually, and have made multiple lists and "review scores" with my pal. We like to think we're hot shit.

Make it a podcast so I can listen!

Same request here. Ever since I've seen you post about it online, I've been wondering if it's available after the air time.

 

We don't have any records of past episodes, but we can start recording them. Then it comes down to if we do any editing, and where we upload them.
This is mostly a "just because we can" and "just for fun" thing. So it shouldn't be a problem.

"Three Billboards outside Ebbing, missouri" - Very solid movie with somewhat dark topics that are eased, but not forgotten through comedy. [8/10]

"Lady Bird" - One of the best movies that covers youth and family relationships. [An experience worth having/10]

"Kong: Skull Island" - Awesome action movie with decent-but-generic characters, and many brilliant scenes that suffer from an obvious plot. [7/10]

"The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)" - A film that proves Adam Sandler can really act, and that Ben Stiller isn't a joke. A fantastic take on family dysfunction through solid comedy and drama. [8/10]

"The Villainess" - Korean over-the-top action drama that does action well and drama great. The story is a bit sporadic, and characters can get confusing, but it makes for a really fulfilling and entertaining movie. [7/10]

"Killing Gunther" - SNL skit that lasts too long with way too many missed jokes. Arnold Schwarzenegger pulls the movie back, but only for the final 20min. [3.5/10]

"Justice League" - Exactly what you expect, but with CGI and special effects that make you upset, given how large the budget and teams are. [5/10]

"Daddy's Home: 2" - Some funny but easy jokes, with an overall experience that leaves you questioning why you're watching this. [3/10]

"Murder on the Orient Express" - Decent murder-mystery with some great cinematography that does nothing wrong, but nothing great. [6/10]

"Thor: Ragnarok" - Extremely fun and comedic Marvel film with a good hold on the 80s style. Actors are great and scenes are fine, but drama is very lacking, and jokes can be too numerous. [8/10]

"The Florida Project" - Another of the best movies ever that covers youth/adolescence within a poor lifestyle that you know exists, but never really think about. [An experience worth having/10]

"The Foreigner" - Brosnan and Chan are solid, but not spectacular, in a film that is very average, and somewhat dull at times. Another not bad, but not great film. [6/10]

"Kingsman: The Golden Circle" - A fun and action-packed movie that doesn't bother with boundaries, or a good story. Scenes and characters are very fun, but the film as a whole is not fulfilling and still wants to objectify women for some reason. [6.5/10]

Finally giving My Hero Academia a shot.  The large cast of characters and powers keeps things interesting overall, even though the characters it tends to focus on are more boring.  I could definitely go for more Froppy, Pinky (the slime girl), and Creati.

 

I've also been rewatching Hajime no Ippo.  It's awesome as hell.
