BONUS! A completely unrelated mini-review of a cartoon from Mendo's childhood:
Mr. Mendo is joined by co-host Sursum Ursa
to review Juno
, the Best Picture nominee starring Ellen Page as a Sunny D-guzzling pop culture reference machine who gets knocked up by Michael Cera and decides to give the baby up to Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman. Correction: Ursa
reviews the movie, while Mendo unleashes a torrent of mindless self-indulgence, complete with cameos from Johnny Oldschool, the Unusual Suspect, Liam AKA Cheapus, Joey Tedesco as Dr. Rockso, a musical interlude from Full of Questions, and a special appearance by Robert Million
as the Log Lady. Yes, all of this happens during the review. Honest to blog.
District 9 (2009)
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: no one does borderline psychotic military commanders quite like the South Africans.”Frozen (2013)
Death, despair, and show tunes!Django Unchained (2012)
“Will people look back on Django Unchained as Tarantino's masterwork? Most likely not, as Pulp Fiction is so culturally ingrained, and Inglourious Basterds is much more daring. However, Django is that rare film that just works on every level.”Silver Linings Playbook (2012): Bipolar disorder as cute rom-com quirk
“Take away the bipolar disorder, OCD, and neuroses, and you’ve basically got yourself a typical romantic comedy.”Heaven is for Real is really dumb
“If there’s one quality that entertainment for Christians shares with video games made for pre-teen girls, it’s the idea that conflict is a dirty word.”Inception (2010): The joyless dream of Christopher Nolan
“It tells you what it’s going to show you, then it shows you what it just told you. Understanding this movie doesn’t require intelligence, but rather rote memorization.”
