Mandy Kaplan leads a merry band of Krissy Lenz and Pete Wright on a journey through holiday musical magic, a game of titles, and a list of iconic movie character names!
We start with an ode to Angela Lansbury, whose death this week marks the end of an era for a Dame expert at pivoting her career with the times.
Mandy’s still hate-watching stuff, but mostly it’s just all football. Krissy checked out Hocus Pocus 2 and as a result, is now calling for a full Midleraissance. Pete is watching sexist and homophobic car TV from 20 years ago but MOSTLY wants to talk about the meta finale of season 1 of She-Hulk, which Mandy and Krissy have not seen. It’s pretty one-sided, but hopefully, you listen and want to check it out yourself because it’s pretty fun.
- Mandy’s Trailer: Spirited
- Krissy’s Trailer: Violent Night
- Pete’s Trailer: Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical
This week’s list is a celebration of great character names. What makes a name stick in your head? What makes it something you repeat? What makes the character enter the public consciousness?
- Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory – Veruca Salt
- Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark – Indiana Jones
- Happy Gilmore – Shooter McGavin
