SDCC 2019

What’s up folks, Justin here. We start off this episode discussing some of the News that’s come out of SDCC 2019 (San Diego Comic Con). We recorded on the Friday so we were missing some pretty big pieces of news that came out on Saturday, but that just gives us content for later!

I lived in LA for almost 6 years, and SDCC was a staple while I was there. Working in the animation industry I was fortunate enough to be eligible for professional credentials. I haven’t gone to one in a few years since returning to Toronto, but reviewing the news and exclusives that come out of the con is always bitter sweet.

Crawl vs. Sharknado?

Atul discusses in high-level detail the film Crawl, and how it’s being compared to the Sharknado films. This results in a rant/debate about the merit of the Sharknado films, and intentionally bad films in general.

John Carpenter: Musician

We close out the episode discussing John Carpenter’s recent expansion into the world of musical performances. Having seen him live, we can both say that it’s a great show, and seeing Mr. Carpenter live playing the keys is a sight to behold. However, he’s no Bach, Mozart, or Beethoven.


You Are My Buddi, Until the End

What’s up doomers! Atul and Justin get a chance to revisit the Child’s Play universe with the 2019 version of the film. The last time the harbingers messed with Chucky was in Drinking With Skeletons Episode 1.

Overall, Child’s Play 2019 is a different experience than it’s 1988 counterpart, but is it better or worse? Well check out the episode to find out!

What Else Are We Talking About

We run the gamut on several other topics in this episode including the 2019 NBA Champion Toronto Raptors, the canned Mouse Guard film, and several other topics.

What Are We Drinking

Justin is drinking a fine Oaked Chardonnay from a winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake called Caroline Cellars. They are easily the best bang for the buck in Niagara for the average person. It’s hard not to walk out of there with at least a half-dozen bottles of wine. And they average about $14 CAD per bottle. Check them out. You can’t go wrong.
