58 – Holes (1998/2003) w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Sophie Gareau-Brennan is here to talk about the 1998 book & the 2003 film Holes.

We discuss the differences between the book & movie, the reasons why this story meant so much to us, and the different children’s books we would make into movies.

Most importantly: Dig it uh oh-oh. Dig it.

So make sure to hit up Sophie via her Twitter if you’d like to chat more about Holes or foodstuffs or other children’s books; or just check out the show we host: We Watch Food

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.

08 – Ratatouille (2007)

Sophie & Mitch try to figure out if anyone can cook – as well as many other things brought up by the 2007 Disney/Pixar film: Ratatouille.

Is Remmy a Secret of NIMH rat? How does Linguini’s hair turn his body into a puppet? Why couldn’t the beautiful scenes built around food be held together with a more streamlined structural focus resulting in a stronger relationship with between the antagonists and the protagonists? We answer all these questions and more!
