MTCN Review Team: Princess Mononoke 20th Anniversary

Karina and I finish off the last episode of MTCN Review Team Season 4 with a look back into the past! Karina introduces me to the magical forest of Miyazaki as we catch a screening of Princess Mononoke! How has one of Miyazaki’s classics held up? Watch and find out!

MTCN Review Team: Moonlight

According to the film’s own trailer, this film is a gift from God that will cure all your ailments, but while it doesn’t quite reach that level of hype, it is a film worthy of Oscar Season! Grant and I break down one of the biggest Oscar contenders, Moonlight!

MTCN Review Team: A Monster Calls

I don’t think I realized how much I needed this film until I saw it. Karina and I wrap up 2016’s movies with a look at a fantasy movie about grief, acceptance, and the grey and complex areas of life, A Monster Calls!

MTCN Review Team: Sing!

Does this mean I’ll finally stop getting the trailer for the damn thing? Matt and I sit down with the newest Illumination film, Sing! Is it good? Who cares! I never have to see that stupid trailer again!

MTCN Catch Up: Alice Through the Looking Glass

Just in time for the new year, we present the first episode of our newest show, MTCN Catch Up! Where I basically make up for lost time by taking a look at the movies I missed that YOU want me to see! You guys asked me to see them, so here I am!

We start off with a look at the Disney sequel to the often frowned upon remake of Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass! How does the sequel hold up to the original, or even the book? Watch and find out!

If there’s another movie I missed in MTCN Review Team that you’d like me to see, leave me a comment, message, or email, and I’ll get on it as soon as I can!

MTCN Review Team: Manchester by the Sea

In the mood for a film about death, grief, and the pain brought by the ghosts of the past? No, wait, GET BACK HERE! Grant and I discuss a movie that’s hard to sit through, but well worth your time, Manchester by the Sea! See why this movie is what Collateral Beauty WISHES it could be!

MTCN Review Team: La La Land

Get your toes tapping and your hands aflappin’ because we got the newest, likely oscar-nominated musical that’s…honestly kind of depressing, BUT IN A GOOD WAY! Matt and I go over the joys and sorrows brought on by duo of Emma Watson and Ryan Gosling in La La Land!

MTCN Review Team: Collateral Beauty

………What the hell is this? Just….what the hell? It’s pretty hard to pinpoint when we last saw a clearly Oscar bait movie go so disastrously wrong as Collateral Beauty! Find out what the heck happened and why this film is really, REALLY f**ked up as Matthew and I go over it piece by piece!

MTCN Review Team: Assassin’s Creed

How many of these G***amn, motherf**king, stupid-a** video game adaptations do we need to sit through before we get one that’s actually worth our time?! Grant and I go over the newest video game disappointment in Assassin’s Creed!

MTCN Review Team: Star Wars Rogue One

So there’s this thing called Star Wars, that’s super popular for some reason? I don’t know, but it apparently got a spin-off that a lot of people are talking about, so we’re going to talk about it too! Okay, all joking aside, Grant and I go over the newest entry in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: Rogue One!

MTCN Review Team: Bad Santa 2

Why? That’s really the only question to ask here. Why? Why does this exist? Why did this get a sequel? And why did it have to be so bad?! Mahan and I ponder these same questions as we take a look at Bad Santa 2!

MTCN Review Team: Moana

And just like that, another Disney Princess is born in the newest critically acclaimed animated movie from the House of Mouse! Do Amarissa and I think Moana lives up to the hype or does it have a bad case of the crabs? Watch and find out!

MTCN Review Team: The Edge of Seventeen

Damn it all! This movie is going to be Swiss Army Man all over again! I can tell people over and over how amazing it is and no one is going to believe me! Matthew and I go over the movie that surprised us both, Edge of Seventeen! Watch and learn why this might be the most surprising must-see of the year!

MTCN Review Team: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Harry Potter meets Pokemon in the newest addition to wild world of Magic, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! How does the newest entry in the Potter Franchise hold up? Watch and find out!

MTCN Review Team: Arrival

Another case of “One of the best films of the year that you probably didn’t see,” Arrival provides some of the most inventive and fascinating sci-fi stories in recent memory! Grant and I go over why in our review!

MTCN Review Team: Dr. Strange

Whether you love Marvel movies or hate them, you have to admit that they managed to make even their strangest (heh) heroes work in ways that you can never fully explain! Grant and I go over Marvel’s descent into mysticism, Dr. Strange!

MTCN Review Team: Trolls

One of the few movies in recent memory where I can safely say that Justin Timberlake is the most relatable character. Grant and I slog our way through Dreamwork’s latest, Trolls!

MTCN Review Team: The Accountant

What happens when a guy who knows a fair amount about people on the autism spectrum to The Accountant? Apparently you get way more out of it than you probably should. Grant and I argue about characters and narrative with our review of the newest Ben Affleck film, The Accountant!
