Ep. 94: 'The Cloverfield Paradox' & 'Fifty Shades Freed'

Welcome folks! To be clear, this is not an Alien fanboy podcast. Don't be confused. Also not a foodie podcast; put down your quenelle hymnals.

Man flu's and hot spoons aside, this week you won't want to step away from. Snag your hot beverage of choice, and answer the age-old question: who... will... win? A non-Ripley female protagonist fighting non-aliens in space, or soft-core porn played over a tortured drama? Nonsense sci-fi twists, or ridiculous trust issues? Tangentially-related monster franchises, or films you really don't need to watch in a crowded theater?

... Have you chosen your answer? Great, now don't tell anybody you watched either of these films.

Don't miss the climax!

- (Jon here, with a final note: please understand, neither of these films are good. I gave lukewarm reviews for these films because I am a snarky fuck. These are horrendous films no one should watch. That is all.)
