Ep. #8 – Solo: A Star Wars Story

The Star Wars spin-offs continue as my friend Kate and I discuss the latest entry Solo: A Star Wars Story, which delves into the background of everyone’s favorite scruffy-looking nerf herder: Han Solo. We then discuss the daunting task of catching up on Arrested Developmentin time for the brand new 5th season and also recap the unhinged silliness of the new comedy Game Night.

Ep. #7 – Isle of Dogs

We brought the whole family together, including my wife Aubree and our dog Ebert, as we talk over Isle of Dogs, the new stop-motion animated film from Wes Anderson. Then, we go over some of our streaming favorites these days, including the harrowing new season of The Handmaid’s Tale and the re-mixed fourth season (and upcoming fifth season) of Arrested Development. Of course, neither of these are a match for the guilty pleasure that is Catfish: The TV Show. Find us on FacebookTwitter and Letterboxd.

Ep. #6 – Avengers: Infinity War

2 guests are better than 1 as my friends Matt and Nick join me to discuss Avengers: InfinityWar, the super-sized superhero film that serves as the climax of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We also give shout-outs to the final season of the Netflix series Loveand to the upcoming second season of the HBO series Westworld. I also refer to the Paddingtonfilms as “charming” no fewer than 4 times. Find us on FacebookTwitterand Letterboxd.

Ep. #5 – A Quiet Place

This week on Awake in the Dark, I’m joined by my friend Bailey Suits as we break our silence on the new supernatural thriller A Quiet Place, starring (and directed by) John Krasinski and his real-life wife Emily Blunt. We then recap our latest binge sessions with the Netflix series Grace and Frankie and the Amazon Prime series Sneaky Pete, whose 2nd season was just released last month.

Ep. #4 – Annihilation

This week on Awake in the Dark, I’m joined by my friend Bart Good as we enter The Shimmer and attempt to break down Annihilation, the new sci-fi horror mind-bender from writer/director Alex Garland. Then we sing the praises of unhinged Nicolas Cage in his newest film Mom and Dad and Brigsby Bear takes a well-deserved victory lap. Our entire conversation could generally be described as Kafkaesque. Find us on FacebookTwitter and Letterboxd.

Ep. #3 – A Wrinkle in Time

On the third episode of Awake in the Dark, I’m joined by my friend Taylor as we unravel time and space to discuss A Wrinkle in Time, the latest Disney film based on the children’s novel by Madeleine L’Engle. We’ll also discuss a couple notable Netflix series, including The Crown and the new docuseries Flint Town. Then we do a brief Oscar recap and give the Academy some advice for next year’s telecast. There’s even a Mars Needs Moms reference for good measure. Find us on FacebookTwitter and Letterboxd.
