3 thoughts on “Movie Podcast Weekly Ep. 269: Lady Bird (2017)

  1. I’m calling Jay out on his unfair criticism of Ryan for the Batman vs Superman spoiler. Sure, Ryan flat out told Andy that Superman dies, but literally one of the sub-plots in the trailers for Justice League is coping with Superman’s death and more importantly, literally right before Ryan said his spoiler, Jay said (Paraphrasing here)

    “And the winner isn’t who you’d suspect…*Wink wink, nudge nudge*”

    That right there is fully spoils who wins and Andy confirmed it by being surprised when Ryan revealed that Superman dies.

    You can’t go after Ryan for spoilers when he’s basically repeating what you not so subtly revealed.

    • You’re exactly right, Sal, but I was actually joking (admittedly close to the line, assuming that everybody already knows that bit of pop culture). But yeah, you have every right to call a foul on me for that.

  2. I love the phrase “It’s gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight”! I say it all the time! It’s usually met with blank looks, but I still say it.
