Jason Momoa, Grindelwald, Harry Potter discussed on Overthinking It Podcast


Walled action. Welcome to over thinking it where we subject the popular culture to a level of scrutiny. It probably doesn't deserve the over thinkers, like your smart funny friends from the internet. We're like we're like classmates aren't we at a special school for for nerds? So nerdy. That it's almost like magic. I'm Matt rather? I am here with my classmates. Peter fenzl. Hello, pete. Hey, matt. And Mark Lee. Hey, mark. Hey, it's good to be back absence. It's good to have you back back here on the podcast. Right. This week on the show the crimes of Grindelwald, which is the latest entry in the fantastic beasts series, which is the latest series in the wizard. Ing world franchise, which is apparently a thing. And that is the latest franchise in Harry Potter. So. You know, they're they're trying to figure out how to make Star Wars movies without Star Wars, and they're trying to figure out how to make Harry Potter movies without Terry Potter, and it's all being conned into I guess this wizard. Ing world. Kind of label, you know, this free franchise name to which I have to say to the good people at Werner brothers. Stop trying to make fetch happen. It's just I don't know feels feels a little forced anyway there were advertisements for other franchises before the before the movie trailers for the new Jason momoa franchise, which is all about a underwater king. Which is I think the whole DC cinematic universe is actually the Jason momoa, cinematic universe at this point. This is just this is all the Jason momoa, cinematic universe world just living in basically when it comes down to there's there's a good point. I actually I feel like we could do a fun thing of just like cataloging the franchises. You know, the MC you Star Wars. Conjuring the conjuring universes. Big don't forget about that. Even though we haven't watched any of them, so monotheism, you know. I mean that stop that's some serious boxoffice Bob there. All right.
