We're going to talk about Encanto this week but is it possible to do that without talking about Bruno? Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ethan and Georgia as we review Georgia's pick and our newest film we've ever reviewed. We're waiting for our gift in our 105th episode as we discuss:

  • The future and economics of cinema
  • Are we ready to go back in mass crowds
  • We share a bit about Bob Saget
  • Ian gushes about Pop Tarts
  • We question what exactly is magically alive in this film and what isn't
  • Somehow we link this film to Extreme Makeover
  • Why is the house such a jerk in this film?  Why is the family?
  • Who gets forgiven FAR too easily in this film
  • Does this film borrow from a lot of other films?  Is it too much?
  • Does this movie get the ending wrong?
  • Why do we cry at movies? We analyse the possibilities
  • Whether or not Encanto is the Best Film Ever
  • We also find out Reverend Bruce's pick for next week as he prepares to join us for The Endgame
