It may not mean much to you, but the "Ben 10" franchise has been around for well over a decade. So, when the opportunity arrived for Josh to get a DVD of the new "Ben 10 vs. the Universe: The Movie," he jumped at the opportunity. He hadn't seen any of the shows before, but the time had finally come. Why now? What did he think? Will it lead to him watching "The Batchelor?" Listen and find out!
"Batman: Death in the Family" is a new animated DC adventure which takes a little bit from the "Death in the Family" comic storyline and a little bit from the "Batman: Under the Red Hood" movie and a little bit from "Choose Your Own Adventure" titles in order to craft something that... well, to craft something that you have to craft yourself.
Is it worth all the effort?
That's what we're talking about today.
Recently, Josh read "The Haunting of Hill House." Whether he did this because some preternatural force deep within (or perhaps without!) caused him to remember that the Blu-ray of the 1999 adaptation, entitled "The Haunting" was on the way or not, it proved a serendipitous decision. Fate, as they say, has a sense of humor. Hear all about it on today's podcast.
Up this week on the podcast we have writer-director Haroula Rose. She wrote the screenplay (adapting the novel) and directed the new movie, "Once Upon a River." It takes place in the 1970s and follows a Native American teenager in Michigan and she goes searching for her estranged mother. It is also Rose's first feature as a director.
