Won Ton Ton: the Dog Who Saved Hollywood

This week our hosts took on Won Ton Ton a film attempting to parody the animal craze in Hollywood during the 1920’s. The film came to Cup of Tea via Michael’s father – Rich – who saw the movie countless times when he worked in a movie theatre in high school. It wouldn’t have felt right to watch it without him, so this week Cup of Tea welcomes a special guest host, Rich Horecki, to see how the picture stood up decades later!

The Year End Bonanza

We’re doing something a little different this week. We are approaching the first anniversary of our podcast and wanted to celebrate with a mega sized review.

Our hosts watched 61 movies together in 2021 and released most of them on this podcast. Tune in this week for a long-form episode talking through everything we watched this year with behind-the-scenes musings, some enthusiastic Steven Seagal bashing, and another battle over Krull.

The Golden Compass (2007)

Do you like the holiday polar bears that Coca Cola brings out every year around this time? Would you like to watch them rip each other apart in a cgi armored bear brawl? Me neither.

Based on the popular book series, The Golden Compass (2007) tried to appeal to everyone, and in doing so, made all the classic book adaptation mistakes. Get the full breakdown of the film in this week’s episode.
