The MovieByte Podcast

The MovieByte Podcast is a show to discuss, praise, lament, or sometimes even lampoon movies, TV shows, culture and more. Sometimes we talk about specific movies, or sometimes we talk about a movie series, or even TV shows. And sometimes we talk much more broadly about movie themes or topics.

All the Good Wives

All the Good Wives

Join Joe and TJ in the post-apocalyptic future of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ where woman and children are property of warlords and must be set free! While that may be a plot of the most simple variety, it is by no means unsatisfying. Also join in for the discussion of three trailers: ‘Supergirl’, ‘Pan’, and ‘Steve Jobs’. And did you know that Chris Pratt will be in some non-‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Marvel films?

TJ and Joe are joined by Clark Douglas to talk about the delightful film, ‘The Age of Adaline’. More films like this need to be made! Also up for discussion, the passing away of Cinematographer Andrew Lasnie — a sad day for cinema indeed, and the passing of Jonathan Crombie well know for his role as Gilbert Blythe in the ‘Anne of Green Gables’ series. Today is also, apparently, National Super Hero Day and IMDb has a few pictures for such an occasion. And don’t forget about all the various Marvel and DC rumors flying around.

Abrams will come back to the ‘Star Wars’ franchise for Episode IX, Alexandre Desplat possibly scoring one of the spin-off ‘Star Wars’ films, and more!
