Hypothetical games are fun as hell, and that’s exactly what we’re playing on Any Given Saturday now. This is the first episode where we’re debuting our “Versus” game, and we hope it gets crazier with each new episode. It’s very reminiscent of the old “Pirates vs. Ninjas” debate you’ll find in the deep, dark pits of the internet.

If you enjoy weird tangents, then this episode is for you. Somehow, while talking about The Magnificent Seven, we drifted into Indiana Jones, Netflix ratings, and how there should be more Chris Pratt nude scenes (Maybe that’s just me who thinks that). Also, you’ll get to hear a ridiculous memory about me dancing with my dad while wearing a Belle dress (Yes, as in Beauty and The Beast‘s Belle).

I straight-up admit that I’m not as knowledgeable nor as invested in TV as I am in film. As you’ll hear me explain in this week’s “Any Given Saturday” podcast, TV takes more commitment than film because it’s week after week of keeping up with storylines and characters. And unlike bad movies, which only waste your time for an hour or so, the idea of watching a show for months only to be disappointed isn’t my cup of tea. BUT when I find a really good show, I will drop everything for it. So I’m hoping at least one of the shows we cover in this podcast is worth the investment!

It’s difficult to write a review about Snowden because it’s so bland. I don’t even know how being this bland is possible for a movie with such a good pedigree. I mean, it’s directed by Oliver Stone (Any Given Sunday, Platoon). It has great actors like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Rhys Ifans, Nicholas Cage, and Zachary Quinto. And it’s about a public figure who, to this day, is controversial. That should make it fascinating! So why isn’t it? Continue reading “Snowden Isn’t the Thrilling Biopic It Wants to Be”
“Bailey, you aren’t posting these on Saturday.” I know, guys. I know. But we had to get a couple of episodes recorded first, so I’m slowly unleashing them on you. You can check out Episode #0 and Episode #1 if you missed those. And this should be the last one that’s not posted on a Saturday. All right, let’s talk Episode #2!

Most of us can recall the events of January 15, 2009, when Captain Chesley Sullenberger landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River after a bird strike just shortly after taking off from LaGuardia Airport in New York City. We watched on social media and live TV as the flight crew, Coast Guard, NYPD Aviation Unit, and Hudson tourist ferries rescued 155 people in 24 minutes. It truly was the “Miracle on the Hudson.” Can a movie top watching that event in real time?
