 RiaW #386: Mars Needs Moms | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:08:13

DEEP MONTH continues with one of the deepest holes any film company ever dug for themselves. This motion-capture animated film lost over $100 million, which puts it in the top five losses of all time.It's not hard to see why the movie didn't catch fire. The animation is just awful to look at and that's backed by a bad title and really awkwardly written film.To tackle this mess, Alex brought on regular guests Anthony Lopez and Bri Pruett and newcomer Katie Nguyen. That may not sound all that exciting, but the four of them are comedians who make up the Portland standup supergroup Earthquake Hurricane which performs every Wednesday. Check 'em out if you're ever in the area.

 RiaW #385: Planet Earth II | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:14:59

 RiaW #385: Planet Earth II | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:14:58

Not many sequels improve on the original as perfectly as Planet Earth II. It's all the things that made Planet Earth the best nature documentary of all time, but with so many leaps in camera technology that it blows the original out of the water like a shark does to a sea lion.We talk about our favorite fights, mating rituals, parenting advice, and housekeeping tips we saw, and just generally freak out about how good the show is. It's weird but nice.

 RiaW #384: Beauty and the Beast (2017) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:18:43

 RiaW #384: Beauty and the Beast (2017) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:18:42

Tale as old as time, right? Well, assuming time started in 1740 when the original French story about a young woman sleeping with a giant goat dog was published. But Disney keeps going back to that well, this time with a live action remake starring single threat Emma Watson as Belle and an offputting CGI goat-dog as The Beast.In an odd twist, everybody's expectations reverted to the mean: we all hated or loved it less than we expected.

 RiaW #383: Tombstone | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:07:06

When I was a teenager, I owned 8 movies. I would watch each of them over and over and over again, ruining people's lives with my endless quoting. This is one of those movies.Recently over breakfast (that I paid for) I realized that Sean and Shane love this movie as well but hadn't watched it in a while. So we roped in Anthony Lopez, who admires the way the film is lit, and the four of us discussed every great actor and every great line in this pretty incredible film.

 RiaW #382: 1984 by George Orwell | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:09:50

 RiaW #382: 1984 by George Orwell | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:09:49

1984 popped back onto everybody's radar after the election. We dive back to our high school reading list to see what lessons we can learn for today.Plus we have dystopia-aficionado Amanda Leinbaugh and comedian Nariko Ott here to help us break down Big Brother and to discuss what scary thing would be strapped to our faces.

 RiaW #381: Degrassi: The Next Generation | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:11:54

Alex has been on tour across Ontario for the last couple weeks, so he put together a special panel of comedians he was working with to talk about the distinctly Canadian, Degrassi: The Next Generation. It's got a little baby Drake in it!And as you'd expect with a very special episode like this, it got pretty serious in the middle.

 RiaW #380: The Expanse: Season 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:12:24

We're talking space again!The quest for happiness continues as Alex enrolls a couple funny nerds to talk about season 2 of the SyFy Channel's adaptation of The Expanse, his favorite science fiction series.It's completely excellent and also gives us the chance to talk about what it'd be like to have sex in micro gravity (or macro gravity, if you're into that kind of thing).And because one of our guests, Angela, knows the authors of the book series, we are EXTREMELY RESPECTFUL AND SELF CONSCIOUS.
