Silver Linings Playback 5 – Jupiter Ascending

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are continuing their quest to watch maligned movies in hopes of finding a silver lining.

For the month of June, they are watching blockbuster films that were meant to be the start of franchises … but weren’t.

They begin the month with Jupiter Ascending, a sci-fi epic by the Wachowskis, makers of The Matrix, Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas. The plot of Jupiter Ascending is a bit muddled, but essentially it is the story of the titular Jupiter, the accidental heir to Earth who must protect it from a trio of greedy siblings who want to control it to seize control of some goo that can keep them young. It’s a bit of a mess … but together, Joel and Andy will find the film’s silver lining.

When Taylor Tomlinson took a stand up workshop with her dad when she was 16, she had no way of knowing it would be the start of a new career. From churches to late-night talk shows to her own Netflix special, Quarter Life Crisis, Tomlinson has seen that career rise to heights she never could have imagined in a short time.

We chat with Tomlinson about her stand up career (including the decision to pivot away from being a Christian comedian), her Netflix special and what it’s like to have your career take off during a global pandemic.

Silver Linings Playback 4 – Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker

Subscribe:

Once again, Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are rewatching a maligned film in hopes of finding a silver lining. They are finishing out the month of May with Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, the final chapter in what has been dubbed the Skywalker Saga.

Joel is fired up this week. As listeners of Hobo Radio may remember, he was not a fan of this film when it was originally released (you can hear that episode here) and his opinion hasn’t softened on his second viewing. He and Andy vent their frustrations with Rise of Skywalker and then, miraculously, find its silver lining.
