Wow! This week Jim & Ted cover a lot of ground. Before getting into the #TJPdeepDIVE for this week, Solo, A Star Wars Story, they discuss the trailers that premiered during the Super Bowl.
Including #3wordREVIEWs for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Skyscraper, Mission Impossible: Fallout, Cloverfield: Paradox, Avengers: Infinity War and Jack Ryan. Jim leads a bit of a discussion on the Dundee spoof.
Ted and Jim are torn about the idea of cannon versus fresh takes on the Star Wars Universe. The nuanced nature of a "Star Wars colon" movie versus "a Star Wars Story." They touch on a lot of theories and some big picture ideas on expanding a cinematic universe.
We go long on this movie but there's a lot of Star Wars information to go over and Ted's excited to share a picture of his new Han and Chewie figurine.
We are proud to host the first annual TJP Solo Cup where we pit the trailers for the Best Picture Nominees against each other to win this cool keg cup. You might ask: How are they scoring these trailers? Here is Jim's rubric for this round. Scoring five areas on a scale from 1 to 5. Music, Editing, Story, Acting, & Directing. But remember these are all in reference to the trailers. Here is the bracket for the next few weeks.
Below are the trailers for the three Best Picture nominees we are reviewing this week.
...more Oscar nom trailers next week!
