We watched The Spy Who Dumped me, because we love Kate McKinnon, Mila Kunis, and female-led comedies! Did it live up to our extremely high hopes? How does it compare to one of our favorite movies of all time — Spy? We had lots of thoughts. Recommended this episode: Spy Mr. Kate Game Maker’s… Continue reading Rachel and Becky Judge Things Episode 20: The Spy Who Dumped Me
We watched Transformers: The Last Knight. Then we immediately forgot everything that happened in this movie, because it’s two-and-a-half-freaking hours long. We’ve never actually watched a Transformers movie before, but… would it have helped, really? We also had a special guest for the first time — our friend N! Catch her at @mistresscurvy on twitter!… Continue reading Rachel and Becky Judge Things Episode 19: Transformers: The Last Knight
This week we watched the Netflix stand-up special Nanette by Hannah Gadsby. It’s a raw, dark piece of performance art, so we decided that rather than picking it apart, we’d also talk about our new hobby: video games. We traded favorite games in our favorite franchises. Also: sorry about the interruption by the podcast podcats… Continue reading Rachel and Becky Judge Things Episode 18: Nanette and Video Games
We would never watch wrestling, but we did watch and enjoy Glow season 2. Do we have notes? Of course! Recommended this episode: Hollow Knight The Try Guys The Gateway
We watched a Japanese reality TV show, and it was exactly the soothing balm our souls needed this week. The worst person there is an entitled teenager, and there is a sweet romance straight out of our angsty anime dreams. PLEASE watch this show and come tell us all your feelings about it! Things we… Continue reading Rachel and Becky Judge Things Episode 16: Terrace House: Opening New Doors
Harold, they’re lesbians! We watched Carol, to find out if it’s good for more than hilarious tumblr memes and gifs of women looking at each other while a man talks. Bonus: we also discussed Ocean’s 8 in a mostly non-spoilery way. (We forgot to talk about Rooney Mara’s bangs, but I HAVE OPINIONS! -R)
We watched a documentary that made us say the word “bonkers” about a thousand times, learned who we’d like to be our murderous little old grandma, and discussed why Rachel would make a great cult leader. This is a wild, wild country, man. Tough titties.
Is Harlots a sex-positive story that centers the struggles of women, or is it a hot bowl of ahistorical nonsense? We’re here to find out.
We went way outside our comfort zone this week to watch men hurt each other for no apparent reason: we watched Creed! Becky’s under the weather, Rachel is nursing some grudges, and the upstairs neighbors are learning to clog dance. But we finally have a new microphone!
Half of this episode is us discussing Pacific Rim, giant robots we have known and loved, and our own personal kaiju: the podcast pod cats fighting under the bed. Then somehow nearly half of this episode is Rachel trying to describe various McElroy media to Becky. The whole thing gets PRETTY silly. There was no way… Continue reading Rachel and Becky Judge Things Episode 11: Pacific Rim
