Episode 10.5: Where’s Master Human?

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a human should be able to fly.

This month we venture into the amazing world of 2D-3D fusion animation. I don’t think we’ve even watched something in 2D for this show yet? Well whether or not we have before, we have now, it’s Secrets of the Furious Five. It was released on November 9, 2008.


Show-notes:


1:03 Find another series with a worse naming scheme. Go ahead. I guarantee you can’t do it cause there isn’t one.
9:18 Those flower things are literally part of her. Dreamworks!!! *shake fist angrily in the air*
13:13 WAWAWAAAAAA… WA WA WAAA.
15:16 They actually released this on an album. Still all about the Campfire Song though.
19:47 He’s a snow leopard.

Episode 10: The Kaboom of Doom

Anyone notice that kaboom rhymes with doom?

This month we return with not only the newest movies we’ve watch so far (for two months anyway) but also our first animated trilogy! And it was pretty good apparently. It’s Kung Fu Panda 1,2 and 3. Will there be a fourth? The world may never know.


Show-notes:


2:52 Little Panda Fighter is another animated movie about those lovable black and white bears. Except the panda in LPF actually isn’t lovable at all. But hey, at least he has some sick dance moves.
5:19 Full interview with director John Stevenson here. John Stevenson is one of the most normal names ever by the way.
8:08 And you can read about their hilarious adventures here.
9:31 Yeah, that was the link above. In the months since we recorded this, I’ve tried to come to terms with the fact that I’ll never appreciate those noodles, but I couldn’t. It’ll haunt me for the rest of my life. Or something.
15:53 Pandamonium! Get it?
17:55 Full interview with Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. Yup.
26:35 A bit about the development of Kai from the third one.
28:42 More about how KFP 3 was a Chinese co-production.
31:34 Lol.

Other stuff:
Behind the scenes of Kung Fu Panda 2
Which KFP2 jokes did Charlie Kaufman write?
KFP2 premiers in China
Write up from New York Times
Other short review type thing

Episode 9: The Five Falkors

The crossover event of the year!

You might notice a friendly cricket during this recording. We’ve named him Garage Cricket. Gary for short. Well actually by we I mean me, and by named him I mean I made up that name right now. Look the topic at hand is The NeverEnding Story, and spoiler it’s not as good as when you watched it as a kid so maybe just don’t watch it again. Well the 2nd and 3rd for sure, not sure about the first. Rose tinted goggles and all that. The NeverEnding Story was released in 1984, 1990, and 1994.

Show-notes:


4:07 And here you can read about him rightfully regretting that decision.
9:33 This guy. Thanks for Gmork man. He looked pretty cool.
10:48 Steven Spielberg has AURYN now… also, you won’t want to miss these 13 other amazing facts doctors don’t want you to know about The Neverending Story.
11:19 My current jam.
13:50 More about the 25 people needed to make Falkor work and the other puppets in the film.
14:31 It’s in a link at the bottom.
18:27 You won’t believe the top 9 reasons why adults shouldn’t watch Neverending Story!
19:50 And if you want to know what the actors are up to now 30-something years later, you can check this out. But maybe skip over Bastian’s gnarly dreads.
29:30 Watch. Watch and be amazed.
31:31 It’s Pyornkrachzark. I wonder how much time they could’ve tacked onto the movie by saying that name instead of Rock Biter. Cause it would’ve added up.

Here are a couple other sites we got info from. They’re definitely not super old and of dubious reliability or anything.
