Who Shot Ya?

Booksmart

This week we’re joined by guest host Ellington Wells, a writer and comedian whose credits include The New Negroes and Adult Swim’s Lazor Wulf. The panel discuss the teen comedy Booksmart, and what distinguishes this film from others in the “one crazy night” genre.

Kayla in Seattle called the Who Shot Line after seeing Captain Marvel, a movie that helped her shake off the idea of what women are supposed to be. She wondered if the panelists could point to any movies that helped them contextualize their place in the world.

In news, Rotten Tomatoes fights back against review-bombing trolls, director Xavier Dolan takes issue with describing his latest film
Matthias & Maxime as a ‘gay love story’, and former SNL star Chris Kattan’s new memoir
Baby, Don’t Hurt Me alleges Lorne Michaels pressured him to have sex with ‘Clueless’ director Amy Heckerling.

As we wait for the ball to drop from high above Miranda Street, Paula and Adam review 2018... and how much it sucked! Still, there were some high points - weren’t there? Maybe a certain podcast making its debut...? We ring in the New Year by sampling some of our listeners’ lowest expectations for 2019. Also, with M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” poised to hit theaters, we review the first of its two prequels, 2000’s “Unbreakable,” starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and the surprising hair stylings of Robert Louis Stevenson.

Paula and Adam take a week off - but not before preparing this Very Special Episode! First - your questions, asked and answered. We read some of the many dilemmas that have been on our listeners’ minds, and Paula does her level best to help out. Then, we reach back into the archives - way, way back to the spring of 2018 - to offer a never-before-heard prequel movie review! The long-awaited sequel to Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pacfic RIm” was coming out, and we review the original to let you know whether the new one might be worth your time. SPOILER ALERT: Paula and Adam do not totally agree on the dramatic potential of monsters vs. giant robots.

We explore two of the most efficient ways to get organized: Decluttering... and murder! First, Clutter Healing’s Lili Pettit teaches us how to live better by cleaning up our personal environment. And then we watch a space monster declutter the Central American jungle environment by clearing away all the unsightly humans. Yes, Paula and Adam review the 1987 Schwarzenegger-infused action classic “Predator” to help you decide whether the upcoming sequel, “The Predator” will be worth your time and money.
