#3 - Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring

Season 2020 - Episode 29 - Aired 7/26/2020

Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy won a ton of Academy Awards and revolutionized the fantasy genre on the big screen. With an amazing cast and incredible special effects, the Fellowship of the Ring really took the world by storm when it came out in 2001. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring raises a few questions (aside from the question about how many times the word “the” appears in the title.) Like why did Sauron try to grab Isuldur instead of smashing him like everyone else? Why didn’t Elrond try a tiny bit harder to stop him? Why does Frodo keep getting stabbed? Why is everyone walking so much? Where did Gandalf go? How did they agree to shoot all three movie simultaneously? What about the eagles?

#4 - Dragonball Evolution

Season 2020 - Episode 30 - Aired 8/2/2020

Dragon Ball is an incredibly popular anime, so it makes sense that Hollywood decided to take a crack at a live-action adaptation. Maybe it would have been helpful if the movie was actually BASED on Dragon Ball in ways other than just the character names. Dragonball Evolution raises a lot of questions. Like why did Goku fling a fly in his grandpa’s mouth. How did Piccolo escape? Why does Goku carry a Dragonball to a teenager party? Why does Piccolo go to Goku’s home if he can sense that the ball isn’t there? Why didn’t Goku just explain himself to Roshi instead of fighting him? Why did Roshi waste a bunch of time in the pit if he was perfectly capable of jumping out? How does digging through that pit lead them to the top of an open-sky volcano? How did anyone think this movie was a good idea?

Season 2020 - Episode 31 - Aired 8/10/2020

The Lord of the Rings movies were incredibly successful and critically acclaimed, for good reason. With revolutionary special effects, costumes, make-up and more -- Peter Jackson’s movies became instant classics. But The Lords of the Rings: The Two Towers still raises a few questions. Like why is falling from high up an okay thing for good guys? How many fake-out deaths can they put in these things? Why does Saruman look like he lost a contact lens? Why would they let Wormtongue leave? Why do all the orcs have Cockney accents?

The Lord of the Rings movies were incredibly successful and critically acclaimed, for good reason. With revolutionary special effects, costumes, make-up and more -- Peter Jackson’s movies became instant classics, and he wrapped up the trilogy with The Return of the King in which the king… returns. The movie was critically acclaimed and a massive success at the box office, but it still raises a few questions. Like what’s up with Frodo being the absolute worst? How does he always end up siding with Gollum? Why didn’t they include Saruman’s death in the theatrical cut? Why does Frodo keep getting stabbed? Why does Denethor eat tomatoes like that? What’s up with the sudden ghost deus ex machina? When is this movie actually going to end?

#7 - Space Jam 2: A New Legacy

Season 2021 - Episode 29 - Aired 7/20/2021

Space Jam starring Michael Jordan was one of the definitive kid's movies of the 1990s and became an international hit. Naturally, Hollywood has wanted to make a sequel for a long time, but it’s no easy task. Who is an all-star athlete who is not only popular enough to not only carry a movie but fit it into their busy all-star athlete schedule? The answer is apparently: Lebron James. Space Jam: A New Legacy definitely raises some questions. Like why are there so many Warner Bros properties in this thing? Why doesn’t Lebron try a little harder to recruit non-Looney Tunes characters? How did his son get that incredible scanning technology? How would winning a basketball game change anything for Al G Rhythm if he’s already made history by teleporting thousands of people into a server? Who are these Matrix references for? How did Bugs Bunny survive? Why are the Clockwork Orange guys here?

#8 - Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Season 2021 - Episode 48 - Aired 11/30/2021

After the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters didn’t play well with fans, Sony didn’t waste much time before trying to relaunch the franchise once again to bring the fans something they’d be a little more satisfied with (and make some sweet sweet money.) The result is Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which sees Jason Reitman (son of the original’s director Ivan Reitman) take the helm and bust some ghosts. Ghostbusters: Afterlife definitely raises some questions though. Like why does everyone go about their lives after witnessing several ghosts fly right by their faces? How was the Statue of Libery walking down the streets of New York not a bigger deal, historically speaking? What’s Finn Wolfhard doing here? Why are those mini Stay Pufts alive and cooking themselves alive inside a Wal-Mart? To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Ghostbusters: Afterlife! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

#9 - Jurassic World Dominion

Season 2022 - Episode 19 - Aired 6/16/2022

Jurassic World was a massive hit in 2015 and therefore, we’ve gotta a whole lot more dinosaurs over the past few years, with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in 2018 and now, Jurassic World Dominion. Now, dinosaurs have spread all over the world, which is cool, but also there are some bugs and a kidnapping. And we’re heading back to a dino reserve park. Jurassic World Dominion definitely raises a few questions. Like what are the characters names again? Oh yeah! How strong is Owen Grady, and how FAST is Claire Dearing? At what point did Lewis Dodgson transform into Apple CEO Tim Cook? Do plane crashes ever hurt anyone? What about hypothermia? Did Owen just choke out a dinosaur? How is that hand move so confusing to dinosaurs? To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Jurassic World Dominion!

Season 2022 - Episode 32 - Aired 9/22/2022

If you hadn’t noticed, Disney has been on an absolute rampage of re-making their animated classics in “live-action” over the past few years. From Aladdin to The Lion King to Beauty and the Beast to Dumbo, they’re… y’know they’re doing it… for sure. Now, as they slowly run out of classics to remake, they’ve finally landed on one of their very first animated films ever… Pinocchio! As you might imagine from a 2022 remake of a movie from 80 years ago, 2022’s Pinocchio does raise some questions. Like To answer all these questions, check out the pitch meeting that led to the Pinocchio remake! Like what’s up with the iconic Blue Fairy showing up for one scene and then disappearing forever? Why is there an extended scene involving horse poop? Does Pinocchio learn anything at all, or is he already perfect from the beginning? And if he already fully gets the difference between right and wrong, what’s the point of Jiminy Cricket?

#12 - Halloween Ends

Season 2022 - Episode 36 - Aired 10/21/2022

After decades, the Halloween saga is coming to an end. Again. In a different way, and like in a different timeline? Don’t worry about it too much– the point is, Michael Myers is BACK. Kind of. Actually, he’s not really in this movie, but he’s definitely on the posters and in the trailers. So that’s pretty cool! Halloween Ends definitely raises some questions. Like why, in this movie marketed as the epic final showdown between Michael Myers and Laurie Strode, are we spending 90% of our time with a new dude named Corey? Why did Michael go from being an unstoppable force of evil in the last movie to being a weak old man living in the sewer? Why is Laurie living so calmly and casually now that Michael Myers has killed her daughter and is roaming free somewhere?

Dwayne Johnson has been trying to get his Black Adam made for nearly fifteen years. Now, in 2022, it’s finally come to life. And one thing is for sure, it’s a movie that came out, and now the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe has been affected in some way probably. Black Adam definitely raises some questions. Like why are Atom Smasher and Cyclone even in this movie? What was up with that Eternium stuff that made Black Adam weak? Why was that kid always skateboarding? Is Black Adam a bad guy just because he keeps saying he is? Why can’t Doctor Fate stop removing his helmet all the time?

Marvel has been going absolutely bananas this year with their slate of Phase Four content being released on Disney+. It seems like every single week in 2022 there has been a new episode of some kind of Marvel property. The latest one to hit the tiny screen is She-Hulk starring Tatiana Maslany. She-Hulk definitely raises some questions. Like, what is this show trying to be? Why is Jennifer so amazing at being a Hulk right away? Does that fourth-wall-breaking stuff feel kinda weird to anyone else in the grand scheme of the MCU? Can She-Hulk solve all problems moving forward by complaining to Marvel? To answer all these questions, check out the pitch meeting that led to the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law!

Season 2022 - Episode 39 - Aired 11/11/2022

After over a decade of superhero domination, a certain movie absolutely crushed it at the box office in 2022, in what many described as a refreshing change of pace. Sure, it was still a sequel, but still, people flocked to the cinemas to see Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick. Top Gun: Maverick definitely raises some questions though. Like will Maverick ever get in trouble? Is this the plot of Star Wars? Do any of these jets have security? Why are they so easy to steal? Do shirtless beach games really lead to such camaraderie? Was that a war crime? To answer all these questions, check out the pitch meeting that led to the Top Gun: Maverick!

Season 2022 - Episode 40 - Aired 11/18/2022

After the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman, Ryan Coogler and Marvel found themselves in the difficult position of continuing an iconic and culturally important series without its main star. The result is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever– a lovely tribute to Boseman, but not without some Marvel-ness to poke fun at! Black Panther: Wakanda Forever does raise some questions. Like how do you actually pronounce NAMOR? How is this guy getting in and out of Wakanda so easily? Why would they go fight the ocean people on their home turf? Is everybody Iron Man now?

#17 - The Rings of Power

Season 2022 - Episode 41 - Aired 12/2/2022

Amazon Studios decided to step up their game a few years ago by spending something like 250 million dollars on the rights to make a Lord of the Rings TV show. And then to make sure it was really good they spent another 750 million on production. So there you have it. One billion dollars! Instant classic, guaranteed! Right? That’s how it works, right? The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power definitely raises some questions. Like why is Galadriel so invincible and powerful? What were the odds of her stumbling upon Sauron in the middle of the ocean? Was she really just planning on swimming across an ocean to get home? Are volcanic eruptions not a huge deal? What was with that weird Rube Goldberg set-up at Mordor? To answer all these questions, check out the pitch meeting that led to the The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power!

Season 2022 - Episode 42 - Aired 12/16/2022

Before the massive success of the MCU and the DCEU, the superhero and comic book genre was still trying to find its footing on the big screen. Before Henry Cavill donned the red cape, Brandon Routh played the Man of Steel on the big screen… ever so briefly. Superman Returns definitely raises some questions. Like why didn’t Superman tell Lois he was leaving? How did nobody realize that Clark and Superman left and returned on the very same day five years apart? Why did Lex hook up with an old lady, and why he is obsessed with this weird island idea of his? Does kryptonite take away Superman’s powers or not? To answer all these questions, check out the pitch meeting that led to Superman Returns!

After a decade of movies, the Harry Potter film series came to an end in 2011 with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. The whole series was a massive worldwide phenomenon and the final movie alone grossed over 1.3 billion at the box office! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 definitely raises some questions though. Like why is Harry getting strategic visions of Voldemort and not the other way around? Why doesn’t Voldemort send his super-important snake away from the massive battle taking place? Why didn’t any of the really helpful magical things introduced in previous movies come into play? Why did Harry name his kid Albus Severus? To answer all these questions, check out the pitch meeting that led to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2!

#22 - The Mandalorian

Season 2022 - Episode 18 - Aired 6/9/2022

Disney has been going all-in with their streaming series as a way to really flesh out (and milk) the massive properties in their library. The Mandalorian was the first big streaming hit for Disney Plus and is now paving the way for a TON of other Star Wars projects, as well as serving as a launching pad for some of them. The Mandalorian definitely raises a few questions though. Like how many side quests is Mando trying to complete? Is anything a serious threat when his armor makes him practically invincible? Why did Moff Gideon kill his own men and give up his advantage? Why do the bad guys have a sensitive info terminal that lets you use it if you just have a face? Is everything about the Skywalkers, in the end? To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to The Mandalorian! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

Somehow in the midst of all the Christmas blockbusters, Netflix’s Bird Box was one of the most popular movies of the season. Bird Box memes spread like wildfire over the Internet with people getting super creative with their Sandra Bullock style blindfolds. Despite its popularity, the movie definitely raises a few questions. Like what even is the purpose of a Bird Box? Why didn’t they move into the supermarket? What’s up with the speedy birth scene?
