Hey, folks! It's time for a brand-new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, and we're talking about an historic film this week. In fact, Josh and Scott are revisiting another older animated film, the 1942 feature Saludos Amigos. This predecessor to The Three Caballeros is, it should be noted, barely a feature film as it runs just over 42 minutes long. This episode, though, is a little bit longer, as Josh and Scott are joined by longtime friend of the show and new Eight-Timers' Club member Monica Castillo to talk about Saludos Amigos, cultural tourism, the position of this film at the time of its release, and just a little bit of talk about a certain new Disney movie that remakes an animated classic. Check out the new show now!

Hey, folks! It's time for a brand-new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, and this time around, Josh and Scott are preparing themselves for some wacky hijinks. That's because we're talking about another comedy from the era of Disney's live-action films of the 1960s and 1970s, Now You See Him, Now You Don't. The title may not suggest it, but this is the second entry in the famous Dexter Riley trilogy starring Kurt Russell, so that means that your hosts are joined today by friend of the show and Five-Timers' Club inductee Rob Hunter of Film School Rejects! Is this movie an improvement on its predecessor? Is it weird for Kurt Russell to visibly not be in as much of this movie? Is Josh being too hard on movies of the era? Listen to find out!

Hey, folks! It's time for a brand-new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, and we're going to the stars with this one. Just like most of the world, Scott and Josh have seen the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel, and they're going to talk about this week. They're joined by friend of the show and Five-Timers' Club inductee Emma Stefansky of Thrillist to discuss the Brie Larson-fronted superhero film, the burden of expectations for the first female-led superhero film in the MCU, the worst of the online trolls and their terminology, and more. Is this as good a film as other recent entries of the MCU? Is it fair for a film that's not about white guys to be the most amazing thing ever? Is Josh going to gag over terms like "incel"? Listen to the new show to find out!

Hey, folks! It's time for a brand-new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, and this is a very special and unexpected one. If it was a normal week, Josh and Scott would be sitting down to talk about a film, but oh no! Scott came down with a nasty cold that destroyed his voice, so what is Josh to do? Instead of soldiering on by himself, Josh invites friends of the show Kristy Puchko of Pajiba and Bilge Ebiri of Vulture to talk with him about the 1999 teen comedy 10 Things I Hate About You. As this film hits its 20th anniversary, how well does it hold up? Does the Shakespearean adaptation work well in 2019? Are Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles as charming now as they were back in the day? And what the hell is the failed sequel 10 Things I Hate About Life? Listen to the new show to find out!

Hey, folks! It's time for a brand-new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, and we're ready for the big game on this one. Josh and Scott are headed to the football field for this episode, tossing around the ol' pigskin as they talk about the 2007 family comedy The Game Plan, starring a younger, somehow less incredibly buff Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a star football player whose life is upended when he learns that he has an eight-year old daughter he never knew existed. This comedy is all about formula, and this episode is no different! References to the Mousterpiece Cinema Bingo Card? Check. Tangents? Check. A rant about the recent recipient of the Best Picture Oscar? Check and a half, and bring your earmuffs for that one. Plus, of course, we talk about why The Game Plan's formula doesn't quite pan out, so check out the new show now!
