DCT Season 2 Episode 12: Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, or We Hate You, Amber Heard

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 12, discussing Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Pinag-usapan namin kung ano ba talaga ang franchise arc nito. Also, phoenix nga ba ang spirit animal ng Dumbledore family? Sana all. And finally, bakit ba kapag nagpalit ng actor, hindi nila tinutuloy ang itsura nito? Kasi dapat puti rin sana ang buhok ni Mads Mikkelsen. Oh well.

DCT Season 2 Episode 11: The Batman, or The Most Realistic Batmobile Ever

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 11, discussing The Batman. Nagustuhan namin ang realistic tone na ginamit ni Matt Reeves, pero darker and grittier than Christopher Nolan's take sa kanyang Dark Knight trilogy. Ang galing din ng backstory ni Catwoman, na nagbigay ng mas malalim na depth sa character niya. Excited na rin kami sa sariling series ni Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

Sting Lacson's rating : 8.2/10
Rachel's rating: 7.9/10

DCT Season 2 Episode 10: The Rundown: The Power of the Dog, Drive My Car, and Turning Red

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 10, a.k.a. The Rundown 04. At ang three short reviews namin sa episode na ito ay: 1) The Power of the Dog (2021) ni Jane Campion, at bakit na-disappoint si Sting Lacson na hindi ito masyadong katulad ng Red Dead Redemption; 2) Drive My Car (2021) ni Ryusuke Hamaguchi, and kung bakit mahalaga kay Rachel ang smooth driving; at 3) Turning Red (2022) ni Domee Shi, at kung bakit dapat alam ng mga tatay ang tunkgol sa pagkakaroon ng period.

Average ratings:
The Power of the Dog: 8.1/10
Drive My Car: 7.7/10
Turning Red: 7.85/10

DCT Season 2 Episode 8: Spider-Man: No Way Home, or Ned's Lola Likes Taong-Gagamba


Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 8, discussing Spider-Man: No Way Home. Hindi namin inakala na makakakita kami ng isang mahabang dialogue exchange in Filipino sa isang major Hollywood movie. Nagustuhan din namin na the use of all three actors who played Spider-Man on the big screen ay na-pull off nang maayos, and hindi naging gimik lang para kumita ng pera. Also, bakit nga ba kami nalungkot sa nangyari kay Aunt May?

DCT Season 2 Episode 7: The Rundown: Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Nightmare Alley, and King Richard

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 7, a.k.a. The Rundown 02. At ang three short reviews namin sa episode na ito ay: 1) Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) ni Jason Reitman, at kung paano nito inulit ang plot ng unang Ghostbusters noong 1986; 2) Nightmare Alley (2021) ni Guillermo del Toro, and kung gaano ito kabigat even if hindi siya ang iyong typical del Toro film na may creatures at supernatural elements; at 3) King Richard (2021) ni Reinaldo Marcus Green, at kung paano kami naging Jon Bernthal fans matapos ang performance niya sa film na ito.

Average ratings:
Ghostbusters: Afterlife: 7.05/10
Nightmare Alley: 7.85/10
King Richard: 8.25/10

DCT Season 2 Episode 6: The Beatles: Get Back (2021), or This Is Peter Jackson's Gift to the World


Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 6, discussing Peter Jackson's documentary The Beatles: Get Back. Sa mga hindi nakakaalam, may mapait na nakaraan ang Beatles at Pilipinas (specifically Manila). We talk about how awesome the songwriting process of the Beatles is, and how great it is to be just a fly on the wall as they create their magic. Magshe-share din kami ng stories about how the Beatles were part of our lives. At pakinggan niyo rin kung paano mag-Liverpudlian accent si Sting Lacson.

DCT Season 2 Episode 5: The Rundown: Don't Look Up, Old, and Belfast

 


Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 5, trying out the new format we call The Rundown. We do three short reviews in one episode! Sa episode na ito, ang aming pinag-usapan ay: 1) Don't Look Up (2021) ni Adam McKay, at ang parallelisms nito sa Philippine society, lalo na't napapalapit na ang eleksyon; 2) Old (2021) ni M. Knight Shyamalan, at kung gaano ka-fanboy si Sting Lacson ni Shyamalan despite The Last Airbender; at 3) Belfast (2021) ni Kenneth Branagh, at kung paano na-kwento ang isang mabigat na theme sa magaan na paraan.

Average ratings:
Don't Look Up: 7.4/10
Old: 7.45/10
Belfast: 7.4/10

DCT Season 2 Episode 4: Encanto (2021), or Why We Need an Asian Lin-Manuel Miranda


Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 4, discussing Disney's Encanto. Gaano kagaling ba si Lin-Manuel Miranda? Magaling, apprarently, lalo na sa pag-rhyme. At kung ang Frozen ay walang leading man, ang Encanto naman ay walang villain o antagonist. Also, bakit sobrang inis si Abuela kay Mirabel, e pareho lang naman silang walang gift?

DCT Season 2 Episode 3: The Matrix Resurrections (2021), or Where are you, Laurence Fishburne?


Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 3, discussing The Matrix Resurrections, and how we are undecided as to how we feel about it. Nagpaka-meta na rin sila rito, and pati ang filmmakers may mga jab sa sarili nila. May rant din si Rachel about 'yung make-up ni Niobe. And yes, magaling sina Jonathan Groff at Neil Patrick Harris, pero nasaan si Laurence Fishburne? May shinare din si Sting about how much the Matrix means to him, especially noong unang lumabas ito.

Sting Lacson's rating: 7/10
Rachel's rating: 6.8/10
Final ating: 6.9/10
