Well this is easily the closest we have ever covered a movie to it's release date but with the timing of the holiday and the very divisive response to this movie it was honestly begging to be talked about. On this special Halloween episode I dragged Chris Chipman away from one of his many other projects to talk about the newest entry in the slasher franchise, Halloween Kills. Halloween 2018 was a massive success and universally loved, but the reception for it's sequel seems to be all over the place so we dive in and try to figure out why that it is and discuss how we feel about the film.

Well it's the final bookend of Bond month for the release of No Time to Die. This week I once again sit down with Allen Kesinger to discuss Diamonds Are Forever, Connery's last offical Bond film for Eon Productions. Diamonds Are Forever is certainly a Bond movie with a split audience and while my intial viewing had me firmly landing on the "love it" side Allen's first viewing was more opposite that. Today we sit down and hash it out to see if Diamonds Are Forever is one to be remembered or forgotten.

Today's episode features another returning guest. This week Aerin Moriarty comes back on the pod to talk about a mostly forgotten parody movie of the late 80s. This week we are talking The Pirate Movie. While it most certainly isn't Mel Brooks, The Pirate Movie is a film that seems to have a loving fan base, and Aerin shares that love. While serving as a comedic take on Pirates of Penzance, it's also a pretty forward thinking movie for it's time. Also there are Star Wars references.

Nostalgia has always been a driving force of the film industry. Over the last decade we saw a lot of movies harkening back tothe 80s but come the last few years we have seen a big resurgence of the 90s. 2017's Power Rangers always felt like the true start of 90s nostalgia for me, but maybe that's just because it was the first one that really spoke to me. When I first saw this movie in theaters I liked it, but with every viewing since I have come to absolutely love this film. This feeling is shared by todays guest Alberto Lara (Scrump) the host of the PWT Cast. Today we talk this seminal reboot of the classic 90s television show but we also dive into the Power Rangers franchise overall, as well as talk major genre films.

So personally, I am a massive James Bond fan, however about three years ago that wasn't the case. I was a more passive fan who hadn't even seen all of the movies. I decided to change that and marathon all of the movies in a row. While I was doing that I was blogging my experience with each film. Well former guest and friend of the show Allen Kesinger is also a massive Bond fan and was following the blogs closely and we ended up coming to an disagreement. We each like a movie that the other wasn't really fond of. Well the new Bond movie, No Time to Die, finally releases this month so I thought we would bookmark this month with dual Bond movies. We will watch and discuss the two movies that we couldn't agree on and re-evaluate them. This first episode covers the fifth movie of the franchise, Thunderball. This was one of my least favorite Bond movies, but will a re-watch change my mind?
