Sports fans, I’m not going to lie to you: thins get real blue and real weird real fast in this on. If this pod had a rating, it’d be a hard R. It’s also an episode that swings wildly between the twin poles of “tangential bullshit” (left-of-centre fetishes and 90s rom-coms where one of the leads would later come out as gay) and “actual movie stuff” (a discussion how 2001 aged so well, two very different reads on Blade Runner 2049). In short, another classic episode!
CWs for kink, sexual assault, racism, and probably some other stuff, but those are the three main ones.
This week’s matchups:
2001: A Space Odyssey v. Finding Nemo
The Intouchables vs. Blade Runner 2049
