The Toy Department – Episode 149


In Episode 149, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky lament the ever-increasing speed of the passage of time before discussing:

  • Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (3:10) and how it’s an interesting idea that ultimately falls short in terms of story and character…
  • The new film Vice (20:25) and how despite a non-linear plot and rather unlikable characters it very much succeeds as a film…
  • Ellen’s new standup special Relatable (31:10) and how Madden and Kolsky are very much split on how funny it is…
  • The Netflix film Private Life (36:40) and how much both guys enjoyed the honesty of its storytelling and the tremendous performances of its lead actors…
  • Barry Jenkins’ new movie If Beale Street Could Talk (42:55) and how it is a cinematic masterpiece that should be appreciated far more than some lesser but over-appreciated Oscar contenders…
  • The start of the NFL Playoffs (58:25), covering Kolsky’s Bears feelings and a Wild Card Weekend slate that looks tantalizing…
  • Homework for next week (1:07:45), including (but not limited to, because the guys gotta do some research on what to consume): watching the aforementioned NFL Playoffs and the film The Favourite, plus Restaurant Wars on Top Chef…
