All in Adventure

Episode 161 - How To Train Your Dragon

This week, we watch the computer animated film who's moral center is that being close minded and unknowledgeable about something can lead to fear and violence, and how being open minded and attempting to learn is the best path to understanding and becoming a good person.  Or that its OK for unsupervised kids to feed dangerous creatures food, and only good things will happen if you close your eyes and stick your hand out near their mouths. How To Train Your Dragon (2010), directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders.

BONUS EPISODE! Avengers: Infinity War

This week, we give you a bonus episode!  Since Captain America: Civil War episode lined up so perfectly to the same week as the opening of the new Avengers movie, we decided we'd all go to the theater and see what all the fuss is about.  VERY SPOILER FILLED EPISODE.  See this awesome movie and listen to our take on it. Avengers: Infinity War (2018), directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.

Episode 183 - Zootopia

This week, we watch the animated comedy that tells the tale of a small town bunny moving to Zootopia, a city where all animals can live together without stepping on each other.   Also following in Disney tradition, this film introduces a great pop song that you will grow to hate as it plays over and over again in your head.  Zootopia, directed by Bryon Howard and Rich Moore.

Episode 184 - Mad Max: Fury Road

This week, we watch the unprecedented sequel that pumped blood back into the Max Mad trilogy with a shotgun, the sci-fi/fantasy film that brought an imaginative, cohesive plot to the screen with almost no dialogue, the action movie that received a best picture nomination.  With special guest/Mad Max trilogy binger, Tim Brown.  WITNESS ME!  Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), directed by George Miller.

Episode 185 - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

This week, we watch the block-busting film that paved the way for all buddy movies that came after it.  Paul Newman and Robert Redford are a perfect team, as they rob and steal their way across the mid-west. Once a super-posse is assembled to take them down, they attempt an escape to South America.  Comedy ensues.  Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), directed by George Roy Hill.

Episode 188 - Stand By Me

This week, we watch the rare Stephen King adaptation that omits anything supernatural and simply focuses on the characters.  Rare also in that it's a film adaptation of one of his books and it isn't terrible.  Four kids take a two day trip down the railroad track in search of the body of a dead classmate, and stellar child acting ensues.Stand By Me (1986), directed by Rob Reiner.

Based on the outstandingly popular novel from 1880, and a remake of the 1925 film, this iteration of the tale is distinguished by winning the most Academy Awards in history, and has a number of other records held as well (largest set ever built, etc). Come for the chariot race, and stay for the mind blowing scale. Ben-Hur (1959), directed by William Wyler.
