trilogy

Taken

Taken’s first moment of relevance since 2008.

Ok so here’s where the schedule for this season gets really crazy because for some reason we had to find the least logical way to record these episodes. Yeah. But you know, given the current status of the world, I would actually really like someone to just… take me away. Like taken style, honestly would probably be better than the world we’re living in right now. I’ll be waiting for Liam Neeson to come and save me. It’s Taken, Taken 2 and Taken 3.


Show-notes:
6:00: Liam Neeson was nominated for an Oscar for Schindler’s List.
11:18: Lol November. No Time to Die is now coming in 2021.
14:42: Or a Jedi.
33:58: Why Ralph Breaks the Internet is the worst thing to ever see the light of day.
52:30: The Futurama Theorem.

The Godfather

It’s Ca-POLE-ah and not COP-a-la.

We recorded this in January of 2020 which means basically all of the cultural references are outdated. Also just listen to how optimistic we sound! This was also, fun fact, one of the very last episode we recorded both in person and in the old office we used to record in as we no longer have access to it. So this is quite a monumental episode. It’s The Godfather saga, Francis Ford Coppola’s magnum opus.

Once Upon A Time…

Both Kiyan and I are upstanding citizens, I swear.

Sergio Leone returns to Triple Play with a vengeance!  With this, both Kiyan and I can officially say we’ve seen every Leone movie except for that one that no one really knows. So really we’re basically Leone experts now. I’d suggest we just shut the podcast down now but what’s the fun in that? I think the podcast will continue, anyhow… It’s Once Upon a Time in the West, Duck You Sucker! and Once Upon a Time in America.

Fred

Take a trip down YouTube memory lane.

This week we decided to give Lucas Cruikshank some money. I’m sure he’s really hurting in this time, probably nearly broke, probably has no idea what to do with his life. And now he’s stuck at home, not much to do. Oh god is Fred gonna come back? No please don’t. Lucas, your time has come and has gone and there is no more requirement for it in the world. Please just. Let us review your movies and lets forget this all happened. It’s Fred…

Despicable Me

Surrealism is making a come back.

I know we joke a lot in this episode as well as this description about this franchise being surrealist and also a masterpiece, but go back and watch it. Seriously, go back and watch it through the lens of them being a compilation of surrealist movie experiments and suddenly it all becomes weird as heck. I know this is more than likely not what they were going for at all, but it cannot be ignored. It just can’t! It’s Despicable Me.

Men in Black

You won’t even remember this episode when it’s done.

I tried to dress up like the men in black once. Unfortunately I didn’t have a tailored suit so it looked pretty shitty, you know, but at least I tried. I’m not actually sure if this story is even true anymore because I’m pretty sure I had my mind erased after. So it’s just kind of fragments that I have floating around in my mind that I’m trying to assemble into a coherent story. It’s Men in Black.

291: Invention Convention ft. JB Anderton (Spyfall)

It’s like a science fair but worse.

Weirdly enough there’s actually a new James Bond movie coming out this year. As in like, for the first time in 5 years there’s a James Bond movie coming to theatres. How do I know it was 5 years? Well because I took my dad for his birthday to see it, and it was a monumental age (no, I won’t tell you what it was though). It’s Spyfall written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1 and 5, 2020.


Show-notes:


13:12: The Doctor Who wiki surprisingly doesn’t have a page on left handedness. So instead here’s the page on dates.
22:30: Outside of G.I. Joe, Cobra is like an Austrian military police unit, an Indian police force, and a Serbian military police force.
24:04: It’s not pinned anymore because @Prof_Quiteamess deleted it ;_;
30:38: It was actually steganography. Stenography is something else. According to the Doctor wiki, steganography was only ever mentioned in this episode.
32:11: Here’s Lenny Henry playing the Doctor in 1985. I’ve actually seen this before, but I completely forgot about it.
1:08:30: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, that podcast that we’re finally doing again.
1:14:36: Also check out our other podcasts Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast and Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
1:39:20: This is just copied straight from the Doctor Who wiki: “Editing for the DVD release was completed by the Doctor Who Restoration Team. The most prominent of these edits is to the serial’s final scenes, when the freighter crashes into prehistoric earth. The edit mainly revises the scene so that, instead of the TARDIS’s monitor showing a still image of the freighter, followed by several bright flashes (meant to represent the explosion of the impact), the screen actually shows the freighter slamming into the Earth, with the explosion being represented by a pulsating light over the impact site.” This obviously has to do with the DVD release, which came out in like 2003 (so not exactly recently). But I think this might’ve been what people were discussing when it came to the blu ray.
2:16:52: Here’s the discussion that JB mentioned.
2:19:39: And of course just check out WHO 37 in general, and also check out BAT 77 too.

Rocky IV, Rocky V, Rocky VI

So this week we’re dressed up in America shorts while recording.

You’ll just have to trust me on the America shorts, I swear to god we were wearing them when we recorded. Rocky IV is basically the closest America has come to having legitimate propaganda, or at least until Fox News started. Is that joke too political for this podcast? I don’t think it is. It’s Rocky IV-VI, the seminal classics.

Lord of the Rings

The biggest trilogy ever attempted for this podcast… for a long time.

This was a serious slog. Now the real question is am I talking about the editing or the watching of these movies? I could be talking about both, it’s really late at night and I’ve been up for nearly 15 hours at this point. Which isn’t really that much of a bad thing, but I’ve been working all day. A quest of my own almost. It’s Lord of the Rings, as well as the very first episode of Season 2 of Triple Play. Let’s get this start with some Peter Jackson classics.

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command

This seems somewhat fitting actually.

If you’ve made it this far, you’re one of like 6 people who have. Somehow I’m pretty sure Triple Play has only roughly 6 subscribers. It’s actually probably 5, since one of those subscribers is me, since I test that the episodes release correctly on my own phone. So yeah thanks all 5 of you! To Infinity and Beyond! It’s Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, as well as the thrilling(?) conclusion to the first “season” of Triple Play!


Show-notes:


10:40 General Grievous was a Kaleesh.
15:00 Of course they sold toys of this.
17:12 Check out Trust Your Doctor and Zenith.
22:29 Infinity War
