Episode 92: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

The guys head back to Hogwarts for this week’s podcast on the 2005 fourth installment of the Wizarding World franchise, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The guys talk about the series as a whole, how chill the fake Madeye Moody really seems to be (minus the whole trying to kill Harry thing), how they would have handled the order of cooking up a Voldemort stew, and more. Things get interesting when the Bit Players line up to rate the film: will the reactions be as cold as Cedric’s lifeless body or hot as the Beauxbatons students?

Episode 47: Batman Begins (2005)

To the Bit Cave we go this week as the guys break down Christopher Nolan’s 2005 Batman Begins, the first installment in the Dark Knight trilogy starring Christian Bale. They discuss how well (or poorly) Bale works as Batman/Bruce Wayne, the wonder of Liam Neesons, and how the film expertly navigates the world of Gotham baddies by putting forth more of a conglomerate of evil than a single prolific villain. They also pick what would make for the best Batman Begins action figure as well as their personal favorite Batman villains.

Episode 36: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

We solemnly swear that we are up to no good with this week’s episode on Alfonso Cuarón’s 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The film marks both the book and the film franchise’s turn to the more adult themes that came to truly define the series as a whole. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint grew up before our eyes, and the third installment seems to be when the trio really hits their stride. Their performances, as always, are buoyed by a ridiculous ensemble of British actors that would make Billy Shakes blush, but is the cast enough to make one of the more complicated of J.K. Rowling’s plots to life? The guys also pick their own personal best pranks and what their Patronus would be. Mischief managed.
