 RiaW #403: The Blue Lagoon (1980) WET MONTH | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:20:47

Read it and Weep is a good podcast about books, movies, and TV hosted by Alex Falcone. Each week, we discuss something from pop culture with an emphasis on blockbusters, failures, and nostalgia.

 RiaW #402: Pirates of the Caribbean 5 WET MONTH | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:18:29

Captain Jack Sparrow is back on the high seas with more elaborate set pieces, sexual innuendo, and a drinking problem that is getting less charming and more seriously worrisome. In Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Deadmen Tell No Tales, a zombie franchise stumbles through a convoluted story about pirate ghosts and Greek gods. It's not great, but it's also still kinda fun and definitely better than the last two, so set your expectations accordingly and you may be entertained.

 RiaW #401: Splash (1984) WET MONTH | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:21:26

It's time to get wet and stay wet once again, Meat Suits! Wet Month is back and we're putting on our monoflippers to kick it off in style with the 80s mermaid classic Splash.

Holy dinosaurs, you guys. We somehow have put out 400 episodes of this show. Even if you don’t think the content is good, we’re impressive by volume. For this momentous occasion, we got the original team back together and capped off Revisit Month by re-reading the book that started it all, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Have our opinions changed? Have we gotten softer? Were we… wrong? FIND OUT.

 RiaW #397: The Undefeated (2011) REVISIT | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:30

Back in 2012 we reviewed a weird fan-fic documentary about the then-scariest reality TV star / politician Sarah Palin. It was created by then-unknown evil mastermind Steve Bannon. Oh how much has changed.To kickoff Revisit Month, and our 8-year anniversary month, we're going back to The Undefeated to see if (a) Sarah Palin remained undefeated and (b) if your opinions about her have changed since then.In short, they have, though not necessarily for the better. And our opinion of this unbelievably bad film-making by Bannon hasn't changed at all. Oh man it's bad.

 RiaW #396: Bubble Guppies review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:52

Periodically I like to check in and see what Ezra's son Caleb is watching. He's my real barometer of the 5-and-order crowd. But this time I wanted to get a second opinion, so I asked my friend Tyler Boeh what HIS son was watching, and low-and-behold both little ones are into Bubble Guppies, which means it has to be good.And it kinda is! I'm sure some parents are sick of it, but as a non-parent just watching a few, I was surprised at how much I liked it. The songs are too long and overly produced, but they're also really catchy and the educational value is modest but real.

 RiaW #395: Law and Order | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:21:27

I had jury duty this week, so I made everybody watch my favorite episodic background show Law & Order. Not SVU, the one with all the oogie stuff. Not any of the other numerous spinoffs in the Dick Wolfiverse. Just plain law and normal order.I love this show for reasons I can't quite explain, but mostly it's the competence porn. I love watching people who care about stuff doing it very well. And that's what L&O is about. I also love great acting, different twists on a predictable theme, and shows that portray comedy club owners as monsters.I also had RiaW favorite Amanda on the show because she knows lots and lots about forensics.

 RiaW #394: The Mummy (2017) review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:08:14

Nobody likes the new The Mummy movie starring Tom Cruise. Well, nobody but Alex, who loves it. While he plants his chair firmly on the wrong side of history, everybody else discusses what they didn't love about it: it feels disjointed, trying too hard to make a cinematic universe, Tom Cruise is too old to play a pervy 30-year-old dickhead.It's a fun conversation about this show's favorite thing, mummies. Speaking of which, this week's episode is sponsored by Unwrap My Heart, the novel we wrote about mummies and romantic stuff. Buy it now!
