Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen
Planes, Thrones, and Groot
Oh hai! We’re back, and we have so much good stuff for you. Episode 64 starts off with a trip down memory lane as we journey through another Great Movie Jay Has Never Seen. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles may not be the hallmark moment in the careers of John Candy and Steve Martin, but it’s certainly one of the movies that leaves a lasting impression!
With fresh eyes, Jay talks about his journey through this unique road trip flick and how it gave him a new appreciation for some of the comedic elements of these two actors.
After the appetizer, we deliver the main course of this episode… Guardians of the Galaxy! And almost a year after we started to see the first bits of this movie, we’re happy to report that Guardians has (mostly) exceeded our expectations. We’re giving you a lengthy look at Marvel’s latest piece in Phase 2. It feels like Firefly! GROOT! Chris Pratt is unstoppable, and holy cow, that voice acting from Bradley Cooper. Also, GROOT! But it’s not without its flaws, and we’re happy to talk about those at length too. Jay talks about the biggest hiccup for him, and Parris forecasts the next 10 years of Marvel movies.
But it doesn’t end there! Now that Marvel is doing SO well, it brings a Stark light (see what we did there?) onto the DC Universe. With such a rich set of characters and fun stuff, how can they be failing so hard? We give some honest feedback on their underperformance at this year’s Comic-Con and why DC needs to step up their game.
And as our show ends, Jay delivers a proposition that leaves Parris stunned. It’s the great Hulking of 2014. You won’t want to miss this, because it’s about to get … chilly…

Walter White vs. The World Crime League
Our tangents escape us as we start off Episode 53, the latest and greatest episode in your Remember When podcast. Before the show even starts, we kick off with some crazy hijinx as Siri delivers some bad news to Parris, leaving him flummoxed as Florida State is down at the half.
And then we jump into this week’s episode of “Great” Movies Jay Has Never Seen. We’re using “Great” in the loosest sense of the word, because our latest movie from the Wayback Machine is The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Across the Eighth Dimension. If you’ve never seen this movie before, our advice before watching it is…. don’t. If you have seen the movie before, then sit back and relax as we look at one of those nostalgic 80’s movies that has been absolutely decimated by the passage of time. Seriously, what were we thinking?
After a spoiler-laden discussion, we jump into our thoughts on some of the upcoming movies for 2012 and how the last three months of the year may be infinitely better than the first nine combined. With so many great movies in November and December, it almost makes up for the lackluster summer season.
We take a look back at the first half of Breaking Bad’s final season and discuss whether or not it was a smart idea to split the season, and if the narrative handled the split well. We also chat about NBC’s comedies as the fall season starts, and some of the more promising shows in this year’s lineup. Plus, Jay gives us the scoop on his Walking Dead adventures!
And guess what? WE HAVE A VOICE MAIL PHONE LINE AGAIN! And more importantly, it accepts both phone calls and standard text messages. So why not give us a ring at 714-758-5027?
