The Saturday Matinée episode for August 21st, 2021 featuring Kyle Olson, Rob Kubasko, and Pete Wright is live.

2021-08-21 • Saturday Matinée

It’s National Senior Citizens Day! To all of our elder listeners, we salute you.

Rob leads the charge in a love fest of the Ted Lasso Holiday episode. Pete has some follow-up enthusiasm including this EW video in which Brendan Hunt covers the off-side rule with Brett Goldstein, and this Variety video in which we learn that Juno Temple is a tiny cucumber with anxiety along side the incredible Hanna Waddingham. Oh yeah, and if you want to check out a dose of Brett Goldstein’s early stand-up, why don’t you check out this video from his performance at Richard Sandling’s Perfect Movie? And did you know he has a podcast? A MOVIE podcast? It’s called “Films to be Buried With” and it’s worth checking out.

Pete loves CODA. He likes Beckett. Kyle watched Vivo with his kiddo and found his new favorite Miranda tune.

We also have a bit of news following up on the South Park deal and how Trey Parker and Matt Stone just made $900 million. And yes, they did buy Casa Bonia.

We did a bit deeper on the Ayer cut of Suicide Squad, and the value of dropping additional cuts of existing movies. Is the Snyder Cut reproduceable? Should every big film get a do-over?


We’re celebrating Johnny Dangerously this week on The Next Reel with it’s great visuals. For pairing, we offer a list of movies with great running or visual gags that are our favorites in hopes you might find the fun in them yourself.
