Yes, the episode title is correct. We dedicated an entire podcast to Moonfall. Because we were really excited to see it. For real. Then we saw it. Then we talked about it. Moonfall.
We missed December (let’s be honest, we were all just waiting out the end of 2021, right?) but are back for 2022! This episode the Pigs review al the movies they saw in 2021, in theaters or at home streaming, locked away from a world gone mad. SPOILER ALERT: Todd risked going to the theater multiple times – and some of his risks were highly questionable.
A busy holiday season means this November’s podcast is an episode of The Bacon. Todd and Skelton get into it over whether a movie’s featured song made the movie a hit, or if the movie made the song popular. But before that they ramble on about movies they’ve seen, including those omnipresent Marvel ones.
Remember, remember the Pigs in November! Because we forgot about October, the Pigs are hitting November early with an intense discussion about Shock Value in movies. Plus, an entirely too long segment about what we’ve seen lately and a game that predictably upsets Todd but has an unpredictable ending!
We’re trying something new this episode – not a Bacon, not a regular episode, but something in-between. Because this pandemic is exhausting and we needed something to shake up the monotony. Also, prepping a full episode is hard work and Skelton is very, very tired. Give him a break! There’s still a game and arguing.
A common refrain is that there is too much Computer Generated Image VFX in movies that dilute the experience. But what about when CGI VFX work to enhance a movie as seamlessly as the best practical effects? The Pigs break it down in a thoughtful discussion, then follow up with courtroom drama, the latest news, and a game with the worst clues ever.
