Episode 115: Up
Hi there! On this tearjerking episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, Gabe and Josh are going on a trek into the darkest reaches of the Venezuelan jungles to discover a lost species of animal to bring back to civilization, and have traveled in an old house lifted up via balloons and--squirrel! OK, fine, the truth is slightly less adventurous: they're talking about Pixar's 2009 film Up, and are joined in doing so by Slate film critic Dana Stevens. Is Up as emotional and romantic now as it was a few years ago? More importantly, are the relationships that grouchy old Carl has with the living as interesting as the one he has with his recently deceased wife? And what's this whole business about one of your hosts not...liking...dogs? (And it may not be who you think.) You can't know if you don't listen, so get some hankies ready and listen to the new show!
