LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special (2020) w/ the Tin Can Bros
Last week in a galaxy not-so-far away, we watched the brand new LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special! And to help us become Jedi Party Masters, we’ve asked Brian Rosenthal, Joey Richter, and Corey Lubowich - known collectively as the Tin Can Bros - to join us as we break down the wild and wonderful world of LEGO Star Wars. It’s the hypermeta clip show toy commercial we never knew we wanted.

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Look, if they can do it with Haunted Mansion, we can do it with Nonplussed. We’re bridging the gap from spoopy season into winter wonderland with Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas! Join us as we marvel at the filmmaking genius behind this story of a bored white guy at the top of his game who turns to cultural appropriation just to feel alive again.

The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)
We bring Spooptober to a close with 1949’s The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad! This one has had a choppy history (literally), and is one part gag-a-minute cartoonery, one-part Bing Crosby’s Halloween Visual Album. Buxom Dutch girls, horse drag queens, and dual mustaches all make for compelling viewing this season. Join us as we absolutely lose our heads and take you nowhere in particular!  By Jove!

Halloweentown (1998)
Our month of spoopy goodness continues with the Disney Channel Original “favorite,” Halloweentown! It’s the show’s first DCO film, and wowsers it’s a doozy. Neither Josh nor Clancy caught this one in their youth, and their feelings are true to the Nonplussed name. They attempt to demystify the popularity of this magically inauspicious grab at the rising teen wizard wave of the late 90s. One thing can be said for certain: the late, great Debbie Reynolds knows how to commit.  Abracadabra!

Frankenweenie (2012)
We’re kicking off a month of spoopy goodness with Tim Burton’s 2012 stop-motion adaptation of his own short film, Frankenweenie! Clancy was less than electrified, unless you count each time he shrieked at Mr. Whiskers. It’s a macabre, spindly pastiche of classic horror, with many of those tried (tired?) and true Burtonesque trademarks we’ve come to expect, saying, “Ah yes, gothic irony, kooky adults, and sharp angles. This… is a Tim Burton film.” This week’s episode is dedicated to the memory of our own bright, loving, and wonderful dog - Obee. She took her journey over the rainbow bridge suddenly and unexpectedly after we recorded this episode. Rather than chuck this baby out with the proverbial bathwater, we decided to embrace the dramatic irony and release it in her honor. To Obelia Reneé “Obee” Wittge: fashion icon, epic snorer, and world-class spooner.   Shocking!

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
We’ve come to watch it wealthfully at Padua High as we dive into a sea of nostalgia with 10 Things I Hate About You! Don’t worry, fam - this one mostly holds up. In fact, Kat reads more shrewd than shrew, women are taking control of their own lives and destinies, the villain gets knocked out by Alex Mack, and there’s a lot of shouting about placenta.

Oliver & Company (1988)
We know perfect isn’t easy, but that’s hardly an excuse. This week we watch 1988’s Oliver & Company and grapple with one of the questions the film asks us from nearly the beginning: Why should we care? The music still slaps - despite the unused talents of Sheryl Lee Ralph - but otherwise we’re not entirely sure about the longstanding value of this Dickensian mish mosh. Sure, it’s the only role in which Billy Joel doesn’t play himself... but is that it? Make no bones about it, we were doggone frustrated this week. But hey - why should we ca-a-re? Doowopilation!

Robin Hood (1973) w/ Ashley Esqueda
This week Josh and Clancy are joined by CNET’s Ashley Esqueda as they attempt to land a bullseye with 1973’s Robin Hood. She’s a lady, and she’s been waiting to join us on Nonplussed! We discuss our respective pubescent feelings about anthropomorphic animals, the tragic fate of the rabbit family’s patriarch, and Josh’s history with hamster dance. Golly, what a day! Oodelally!

This week we might solve a mystery while critically examining history in DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.

Ratatouille (2007)
This week we take a big ol’ bite out of Pixar’s Ratatouille, and try really hard not to spit it back out. We scrabble at answering the big questions: How much electricity a rat can take? How effective is Linguini’s gaslighting? Why is Colette the only woman with speaking lines? Clancy cooks up a ratspiracy that Josh just can’t swallow while enjoying the sights (!), smells (?), and tastes (!?) of France. Set aside your egos and join us as we examine the life of the littlest chef in Paris. Order up!
