DCT Season 2 Episode 19: Bullet Train (2022), or Possibly the Most Exciting Action Flick to Come Out This Year

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 19, discussing Bullet Train. 'Yung sinasabi ni Martin Scorsese na Marvel movies are more like theme park rides daw, tingin namin mas theme park ride ang Bullet Train. Pinag-usapan din namin ang husay ni Aaron Taylor-Johnson, at ang magaling na sequence involving the water bottle.

DCT Season 2 Episode 18: Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), or How Many Oscar Winners Are in This Flick?

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 18, discussing Thor: Love and Thunder. Isa 'yung tipo ng pelikula na from the start pa lang ay sinasabi na "Don't take us too seriously". Nagustuhan namin ang girl power themes, especially kina King Valkyrie at Jane Foster a.k.a. Mighty Thor. Pinag-usapan din namin na tila walang exclusivity ang paglabas ng isang artista sa Marvel o DC movies, 'di tulad sa Pilipinas na ang Kapuso ay hindi pwede maging Kapamilya at vice versa.

DCT Season 2 Episode 17: Lightyear (2022), or This Is Possibly the Weakest Pixar Film to Date

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 16, discussing the latest Pixar film Lightyear. Pinag-usapan namin kung bakit tingin namin ito ang weakest Pixar film so far, at hindi namin alam kung dahil ba ito ay spin-off. We also talked about the most controversial part ng movie, which is the same-sex kiss (sa totoo lang, smack lang ito, pero ginawang big deal). Binanggit din namin na medyo disappointed kami na walang kasamang Pixar short ito bago ang movie.

DCT Season 2 Episode 16: Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022), or You Had Me at Michelle Yeoh

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 16, discussing Everything Everywhere All at Once, one of the better films about multiverses. Alam niyo ba na hindi ito ang unang pelikula with an Asian lead that talked about multiverses? Nauna ang The One starring Jet Li 21 years ago in 2001. Isa rin ito sa better films that tackles mental health. Listen to the episode na lang kasi mahirap i-explain.

DCT Season 2 Episode 15: Top Gun: Maverick IMAX (2022), or Tom Cruise Will Always Find a Way to Run In His Movies

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 15, discussing Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to the 1986 film Top Gun. Dapat ba itong panoorin sa IMAX? Oo sana, kung may budget. Para makita niyo ang ganda ni Jennifer Connelly and her gracefully-aging face at ang medyo lolo muscles ni Tom Cruise. Pakinggan din kung bakit tingin namin isa itong magandang sequel, kahit na 36 years ang pagitan nito sa unang pelikula.

DCT Season 2 Episode 14: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022), or Benedict Wong Is so Underrated

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 14, discussing the second film in the Doctor Strange franchise, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Bakit nga ba tawang-tawa si Rachel sa naaagnas na zombie Doctor Strange, kahit napaka-seryoso ng scene? Pinag-usapan din namin ang galing ni Elizabeth Olsen, at kung gaano kaganda ang mukha niya sa big screen. Also, wala palang katotohanan ang mga balita na lalabas daw dito si Wolverine. Isang malaking kalokohan po iyon.

DCT Season 2 Episode 13: Uncharted (2022), or OMG Tom Holland's Abs

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 13, discussing Uncharted, the first feature from PlayStation Productions. Para sa amin, isa ito sa better films adapted from a video game. Nabanggit din namin na as fans and actual players of the video game franchise, medyo nakakapanibago sa una na walang bigote ang Sully ni Mark Wahlberg, pero eventually he becomes the character din. And finally, pinag-usapan namin ang Philippine references, mula kay Magellan at Lapu-lapu hanggang sa Kiamba, Sarangani, na birthplace pala ni Jinky Pacquiao.

DCT Season 2 Episode 12: Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022), 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 (2022), 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.

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 9: The Rundown: Licorice Pizza, West Side Story, and CODA

Da Couch Tomato Podcast Season 2 Episode 9, a.k.a. The Rundown 03. At ang three short reviews namin sa episode na ito ay: 1) Licorice Pizza (2021) ni Paul Thomas Anderson, at pagkagulat ni Sting Lacson na ka-birthday niya si Alana Haim; 2) West Side Story (2021) ni Steven Spielberg, and ang slight disappointment ni Rachel sa pagsayaw ni Ansel Elgort; at 3) CODA (2021) ni Sian Heder, at kung bakit isa kang bato kapag hindi ka naiyak sa pelikulang ito.

Average ratings:
Licorice Pizza: 7.7/10
West Side Story: 7/10
CODA: 9.05/10

DCT Season 2 Episode 8: Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), 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
