Welcome back to the new and possibly improved but probably equally middle-of-the-road Stealing the Remote! For season two I have asked, manipulated, and/or bribed my lovely girlfriend Mijntje to join me on my quest to make people watch movies I like. Somehow, she then tricked me into watching a movie she liked: Tom McGrath’s Megamind!
What I can nitpick about a movie made for superhero fanatics like myself? When did my girlfriend cry during Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Why do I struggle finishing books I want to read? Find out by listening, and please count along with how many times Mijntje reminds me of stuff while I joke about never forgetting anything! We disclose the age gap we’re dealing with in this season and how she was still introduced to Batman earlier than I ever was, as well as what kinds of movies we might discuss together in the future. (I’m also a little too excited to be podcasting again and saying “regardless” a lot when we inevitably go off-track.)
On this episode’s Trailer Time, Mijntje makes me watch the Teaser Trailer for Dexter Fletcher’s Rocketman! A music-filled movie, what a surprise.
