Episode 39: The Wild

You have been waiting for this moment for days, weeks, even months. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is a very important, landmark episode of Mousterpiece Cinema. For the first time, you will hear the magic words that make Michael blow a gasket, virtually. Actually, let's up the ante. You will hear TWO different sentences that get Michael's blood boiling. Either way, this week's episode is a spirited debate, as Josh and Michael discuss the merits (or lack thereof) of the 2006 animated film The Wild, which may or may not be a shameless rip-off of Finding Nemo and Madagascar depending on which point of view you agree with. Check out this--wait for it--wild episode of Mousterpiece Cinema!

Travel with Josh and Michael this week to the mysterious red planet that we call Mars, as they discuss the latest film from Walt Disney Pictures, John Carter. This science-fiction epic has been talked about for a lot of reasons--its bad marketing, its 3D post-conversion, its title change--but Josh and Michael are here to resolve the most important question of all to any moviegoer: is this movie any good? Is it worth your time? What does Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol have to do with this movie? Those questions and many more are answered on this life-changing trip to Barsoom on the new Mousterpiece Cinema!

Episode 36: Lady and the Tramp

Do you have to be a dog person to like a Disney classic such as 1955's Lady and the Tramp? Do you hate dogs if you don't? These are just a couple of the questions that Josh and co-host Gabe Bucsko asked and answered while discussing the iconic film on this week's episode. And sure, we've all seen that famous moment where the two dogs eat the same strand of spaghetti and end up kissing, but how does this key romance work when the dogs are talking to each other? What does the time-travel comedy Back to the Future have to do with this relationship? And will Gabe's mother ever think Josh is nothing but a heartless fiend? Find out on the latest Mousterpiece Cinema!
