Your third-or-fourth-favorite movie-related podcast is back for 2018, baby! The Why Watch crew welcomes in the new year with a pretty crappy Terry Gilliam jaunt, 2005’s The Brothers Grimm starring Matt Damon, Heath Ledger, and a whole bunch of wasted talent. There’s a whole magical forest’s worth of problems to dissect in this film, from the rambling plot to the sketchy characters to the ill-defined curse that the grotesque bones of all this hangs upon. On the bright side, there’s a hot buttered rum drink to keep everyone feeling drunk and warm and fuzzy, and everyone has some different ideas about how they’d make a better movie using the basic beans of this one. As always, rate us on Apple Podcasts or Stitcher, like us at facebook.com/whywatchpodcast, and visit us online at dratpack.com. BEANS!
The holiday season has wrapped up but we’re recording this while still in the thick of it all, so the Why Watch crew just decided to recap our year in terms of the best and the worst for both movies and cocktails. We also throw the first movie of 2018 out there along with a drink recipe and some of what to expect for the next twelve months. Rest assured that no matter how bleak and miserable things may seem, we really have nothing better to do with our time than this, so expect another year of this sort of thing! You can make our new year bright by rating us on Apple Podcasts or Stitcher, liking us at facebook.com/whywatchpodcast, and visiting our website at dratpack.com, which we resolve to maybe actually update more this year. Here’s hoping / happy new year!
