22 – Chocolat (2000)

Magic realism or chocolate witchcraft? That’s the biggest question we have about 2000’s Chocolat.

We debate how we would use our chocolate powers, if we were wandering coco-shamans. We discuss how the film differs from the source novel (and how that’s a good thing). We talk about all the wonderful performances from so many actors in this tasty film.

21 – Super Size Me (2004)

Just like McDonald’s french fries, this movie did not age well. It’s Morgan Spurlock’s 2004 film: Super Size Me.

We talk about how much has changed in 14 years since this film’s release; we talk about our own backgrounds with fast food & McDonald’s; we also talk about how a movie’s legacy can be better than the movie itself.

20 – Sausage Party (2016)

What happens when food is alive? We checked out 2016’s Sausage Party to find out and it’s…very adult-orientated.

Sophie & Mitch talk about cartoon food, compartmentalized sentience, and the politics of orgies. We also cover the 2018 Pixar short Bao. Sufficed to say this is a full-sized episode.

19 – Willy Wonka/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1971/2005)

A DOUBLE-FEATURE!? Yep. A really one-sided double-feature featuring 1971’s beloved film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and the 2005 one Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.

First we watched the ’71 film, then we talked about it; then we watched the ’05 one for Sophie’s first time, and then we had to talk about it. Luckily we’ve both come to a better understanding to what made Willy Wonka such a classic.

And the less said about Charlie the better.

18 – No Reservations (2007)

We watched 2007’s No Reservations and it was not what we expected.

Journey with us through this dramatic romantic-comedy based off a German romantic drama film called Mostly Martha (2001). Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart, and Abigail Breslin star in a story about a stuck-in-her-ways chef, her new niece/daughter, and the Owen Wilson-ish guy who brings them together; also: Zeta-Jones’ sister is super dead & a child deals with the crushing realities of mortality. Clearly some things were lost in translation.

17 – Julie & Julia (2009)

Sophie and Mitch watch 2009’s Julie & Julia, a movie about 2 women who were lost in life and found by food.

We talk about cookbooks, boeuf bourguignon, and the film’s ability to tell two different narratives as a single ‘biopic’. Not to mention how amazing Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, and Stanley Tucci are!
