Episode 265: Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey

Josh rules, and Gabe drools! Or, if you like, Gabe rules and Josh drools! If that means anything to you, friends, then you are in for an incredible journey on this new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema. This week, your hosts talk about the 1993 film Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, the remake of the 1963 film all about two domesticated dogs and a domesticated cat who traverse the wilderness of North America to return to their loving owners. Only this time, those animals have voices, provided by Don Ameche, Michael J. Fox, and Sally Field. So that must mean this movie is a huge leap above the original with its excessive narration, right? Or is Homeward Bound losing something by having performances, and also by not being about Simon and Garfunkel? And how did Gabe spend last weekend? How wild was he? Find out now!

Episode 264: Tangled

Hey, friends! Time for a new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, after a few weeks off. (Yes, really, we're back!) Josh and Gabe are reunited after Josh's unexpected stay in the hospital--don't worry, he's fine--to talk about one of the biggest films they've managed to never cover on the show: the 2010 Disney animated film Tangled. Yes, the story of Flynn Rider, the daring rogue who one day meets a beautiful girl with a lot of hair! OK, fine, this is Disney's long-awaited adaptation of the "Rapunzel" fairy tale, and it sets Josh and Gabe on opposite sides almost immediately. Is this one of Disney's best new animated films? Is it one of their more forgettable? Take a listen to find out which side you're on!
