The Lion King (with Fara Nervo)

Film ‐ September 11, 2017

It is time… to discuss the patriarchy, the monarchy and fascism. In this episode, Alan and Joe welcome special guest Fara Nervo into the Overrated studio to discuss The Lion King. Sorry folks, but we’re just not feeling the love tonight for this Disney classic, and we just can’t wait to talk about the replacement film. Be prepared!

What’s this week’s suggested film? Here’s a hint!

“They say that the history of the west was written from the saddle of a horse, but it’s never been told from the heart of one.”

Avatar (with Bryan Fontez)

Film ‐ August 14, 2017

With special guest Bryan Fontez, Joe and Alan journey back to the planet Pandora to discuss the epic sci-fi mega-blockbuster of 2009, Avatar. As the highest grossing film of all time, everyone saw it, yet almost no one seems to like it. Do James Cameron’s grandiose visuals still capture the imagination, or do the characters and story feel flatter than a non-3D screening? As our replacement, we’ll discuss another spaced-out adventure which also features statuesque blue aliens.

What’s this week’s suggested film? Here’s a hint!

“Multi pass!”
