Rock-A-Doodle

This week on Myopia we learn the true evil of owls. In honor of the release of Elvis, we watched the Glen Campbell/Don Bluth movie, Rock-A-Doodle.

Jurassic World ReRelease

In honor of the mediocre end to the Jurassic World Trilogy, we return to the 2015 movie that sucked the charisma out of Chris Pratt, Jurassic World; a movie I have now seen easily two dozen times due to my daughter's love of dinosaurs and a vast Mattel marketing line. Join us for a second season episode where we are young sounding and still optimistic for the hopes of Universal Dino movies, we ignore running in heels, and are generally high on a fun movie experience.

Enjoy

Hosted by Nic

Directed by Colin Trevorrow
Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Judy Greer, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong, Lauren Lapkus, and a useless cameo by Jimmy Fallon
