The ending to the trilogy we never knew we wanted until Split came out is finally here! M. Night Shyamalan concludes his epic super-hero opus with a meditation on the notions of power and human excellence in a mundane world. Does it soar or fall? Find out with Snooty and Goon!
Our sound engineer borked this week’s episode, so sadly you won’t get to hear Snooty’s or Goon’s opinions on The Upside. Sorry! But a brief summary: don’t see this movie. The Upside is a trite, dull, manipulatively saccharine slog that peddles a tired old message of teaching people in wheelchairs that their lives actually are worth living, as if that notion couldn’t be readily apparent without Kevin Hart’s help.
See you next week for Glass! And we promise, our sound engineer will learn his lesson…just as soon as we let him out of the dungeon.
The New Year starts off with a proud, semi-annual tradition of watching a low-budged January horror movie. And it's actually...pretty good? That might be the biggest jump scare of all! Join Snooty and Goon as they solve the riddle of how this movie managed to not be completely awful despite everything working against it!
The year comes to a close up at the Mountaintop Fortress/Recording Studio with a new Transformers movie. But wait! This one isn't offensive to most (if not all) human senses? And has actual characters? And a plot that audiences can follow? AND still looks great?!? My mind is BLOWN!
And don't forget to listen to the end for Snooty's and Goon's Top 5/Bottom 5 of 2018. The best and worst movies get their due in the last episode of the year!

The annual Snooty and Goon roundtable dives into Warner Bros.' latest attempt at franchising. Joined by Captain Action and Professor Science, our brave oceanic cinephiles explore the wonder and dense history of DC's wettest hero. Pull up a chair and join the discussion!
How many Spider-People does it take to fix Sony's mishandling of their sole Marvel property? It turns out, a lot, but it still works! Join Snooty and Goon as they swing through this phenomenal adaptation of Spider-Man, which is actually seven or eight adaptations pureed in a blender and served very, very cool.

There's a Very Good Reason Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse's Spanish Isn't Subtitled
This bold new interpretation of the Hans Christian Anderson classic has the courage to ask, "What if we took this story and made it stink like dead fish?" Snooty and Goon hold their noses and dive into this now-streaming mishmash of cliches and shoddy production values so you don't have to!
It's a short hop in the WABAC this week as Snooty and Goon review the brilliantly crazy (and crazily brilliant) 2018 debut movie from Boots Riley! But don't worry, they only use Fair Trade criticism in this review, so it's 100% ethically reviewed.
Join Snooty and Goon on this quest through cyberspace as they watch Ralph and Vanellope traipse through every licensed website Disney could convince to sign on for this sequel. Trust us, it's better than it sounds.
Warner Bros and J.K. Rowling perform some necromancy, stuffing more unlife into the wheezing corpse of this franchise so it can snatch a little more money out of its devoted fanbase. Bitter? Not at all! You'll be spellbound by Snooty and Goon as they dissect this walking cadaver of a movie!
It's World War 2 like you never knew it in this genre-bending action horror film from the producer of The Cloverfield Paradox! Join Snooty, Goon, and special guest Captain Action as they infiltrate the film and uncover its nasty secrets in this special double-length episode. It's gonna be fun!
One of the most inventive bands of the late 20th century receives one of the least inventive biopics of the 21st century. Snooty and Goon bought backstage passes, but there's nothing in front of or behind the curtain worth the ticket price.
EPISODE CORRECTION: Snooty misidentifies director Bryan Singer as gay, whereas Singer has come out as bisexual. Additionally, Snooty and Goon both misidentify Freddie Mercury as gay instead of bisexual.
