Ok but for real this time. Harry Potter 7.2/8: The Last One We're tired, we're starving, we haven't had anything to eat in months. We've resorted to gnawing on our Harry Potter Books for sustenance. J.K. Rowling went on twitter again. No I'm jst kidding, we're all doing pretty well actually. Thanks for going through … Continue reading CPBC #38 – Harry Potter 7.2 (8?)
A decade is a long time from which to amass a list of favorite albums. And because the 2010s have comprised nearly my entire adult life, my best-of list of the decade is going to look pretty similar to my best-of all time list. So while I wanted to list all of the albums that … Continue reading Buried gems of the decade
Harry Potter 7. It felt like we took forever to get here but we finally did it folks. The last one, the big kahuna, the end, the final podcast we ever need to post about- -what do you mean there's 8?!
It's getting real in Harry Potter world, and we're in the final stretch. Big spoilers abound because this is when the bodies start to hit the floor. Wizard war wooooooooo! As always thanks for listening and for your patience as we (I) make our (my) way out of this hectic holiday season and play a … Continue reading CPBC #36 – Harry Potter 6: Alex’s Favorite
It’s impossible to watch a main series Star Wars film without the outside world creeping in. Any decisions the writers and directors made in the last film of the main-series (for now) would inevitably be debated, nitpicked, and analyzed by a legion of fans, YouTube critics, and dudes with movie blogs. So my review of … Continue reading The Review of Skywalker
You know what's crazy? The holidays. And with that perfect explanation about why it took me so long to edit this, I move on. I think at this point the drill is pretty straight forward, we start talking about harry potter 5 and then we don't continue to talk about harry potter 5. We do … Continue reading CPBC#34 – Harry Potter 5 (finally)
As the three fend off law school finals and holiday work schedules, Kiersten and Alex talk about their dream Pokemon game for a holdover episode in the middle of our Harry Potter conversation. It's got contests, cheeky rivals, a trimmed pokedex, and -- possibly -- a new level cap?
I have not completed I Am Setsuna. This might invalidate a review to some people but god booting up this game immediately sucks all the energy from me like a dementor. Which is a real shame, because I wanted to like I Am Setsuna. I really did. The art is pretty, the aesthetic is nice, … Continue reading I Am Setsuna: A Depressing Game, but in the boring real way.
Life, am I right? Really sneaks up on you sometimes. We do apologize for the lack of updates over the past two weeks. Between me getting a boyfriend delivered directly to my door (convenient) Celia at lawschool in the heart of LA and Alex having an article recognized by Angelina Godoy we've been off the … Continue reading Whoops it’s been two weeks! How about I tell you about Overcooked real quick to make up for it.
The fourth entry in the Harry Potter film series has a tough act to pull off. The film (along with 3) is a bridge between the "gee-whiz" magic of the first films and the political thriller tones in the later movies. It's also our first real window into the awkward teenage phase of the main … Continue reading CPBC #32 – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
