After the Credits Episode 226: Littlest Hobo Media Spew – December

Our current obsession

We spent the holiday break catching up on TV and movies and as a result, we have a slightly longer show than usual in which we cover a whole load of material including a wide swatch of Netflix originals Рnotably season 2 of The Crown which we all managed to consume.

This week, Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) are joined by Melissa (Letterboxd) who sits in to share her recent watched with us!

If you haven’t already subscribed to the show, you can do so on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, Pocket Casts and Google Podcasts and while there, be sure to drop us a rating. It doesn’t seem like a big deal but it helps us grow our audience!

After the Credits Episode 224: January Preview

Fingers crossed this is *actually* coming in January…

Here we go again.

We have said goodbye to 2017 and are kicking off the new year with our first preview of the year and it’s not exactly stellar.

January is commonly a mix of left over prestige pictures finally opening wide and a dumping ground for genre fare but this month does have a glimmering ray of hope – even if we haven’t seen anything about <I>White Boy Rick</i>.

Join us as Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd), special guest Melissa (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) check out what’s opening in January. Continue reading After the Credits Episode 224: January Preview

After the Credits Episode 223: Littlest Hobo Media Spew – November

OMG. It’s back! (sort of)

The holidays are nearly upon us so why not take a break from all the craziness of shopping, cleaning and preparing for the family visit to sit in with Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) as we catch up on all the movies and TV (not to mention books and podcasts) which have been keeping us sane in the last few weeks.

Better yet, if you have to run those errans, plug us in and take us with you. In addition to iTunes we can now be found ona number of other platforms including Stitcher Radio, Pocket Casts and Google Podcasts.

After the Credits Episode 222: December Preview

Guillermo del Toro does inter-species romance

How is it December already and where did 2017 go to?

It seems like only yesterday when we last reminisced about the upcoming holiday movies and Oscar season and yet, it’s been nearly a year since the last Star Wars movie. That feels like a lifetime ago! But time goes on and so does the show – at our new home!

The crew is reunited once more as Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) look towards the end of 2017 with trepidation. December is proving once again to be a busy month and though it might be some time before we get to see some of these titles make their way to Vancouver, there’s plenty opening wide to keep us and the rest of the movie-going audiences busy over the holidays.

After the Credits Episode 221: Littlest Hobo Media Spew – October

Discovery: Haley Lu Richardson

If you’re looking for extensive coverage of what I saw during VIFF, I recommend checking out episodes 217, 218 & 219 in which the fest was covered because for this edidiotn of the Media Spew, fellow cohosts Colleen and Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) catch up on what we’ve been watching but stay fairly far from VIFF – other than on quick note in passing.

Summer love

We missed October due to festival and scheduling craziness but I’d like to think we more than made up for it with a couple of bonus episodes from VIFF.

The crew is, however, reunited this month as Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) look ahead at November which is a mishmash of everything from action adventure (Thor: Ragnarok) and family fare (Coco) to awards hopefuls (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri).

We’re back for our third update and final update from the festival.

After the Credits Episode 218: VIFF Dispatch #2

After the Credits Episode 217: VIFF Dispatch #1

The Vancouver International Film Festival is back for another year and with it, our semi-regular VIFF dispatches.

For our first check-in from the festival, I’m (Letterboxd) joined by festival correspondent and friend of the podcast Mr. Bill Harris (Twitter), whom you can regularly find on The Green Screen of Death podcast. Bill is nearly 3 weeks and 2 festivals into his current run and he’s got some great coverage of the first half of the festival including insights into some of the most lauded movies of the year so far. I chime in with the occasional insight because frankly, I simply haven’t seen as many movies.

We’ll be back with another dispatch from the fest in a day or two but for now, check out our overview of the first 10 days of VIFF.
