Welcome back to another magical episode of Not A Bomb. This is the podcast where we go back and reexamine some of the biggest bombs in cinematic history and see if they deserve a second chance. On this week's episode, the guys tackle a film that grossed over $942,000,000, only for the studio to claim it lost them money. That's right, we are talking Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the fifth film in the Potty franchise and one of the bigger hits of the series. So how did the studio claim they lost money on a movie that almost made a billion dollars? Some creative “Hollywood Accounting”, that's how! Brad and Troy do their best to explain how this accounting practice works and why studios use it. You also get to hear their thoughts on one of the most successful and belovied franchises of all time. Full disclsoure - Brad and Troy are novice Harry Potter fans and one of them hasn't ever really liked the films outside of a single entry. Does this discussion change all of that?

While the dominant conversation around the Magical Wizarding World nowadays is rightfully aimed towards hating J.K Rowling, the Harry Potter book and film series undeniably served as an importance piece of childhood for millions of people. With the rumors of a supposed 'reboot' in store from Warner Brothers (bleh) and the failure of the Fantastic Beasts series - we thought it'd be fun to dip into nostalgia and rank all 8 movies of this franchise from worst to best. The Harry Potter films starred: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grant, Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Helena Bonham Carter, Gary Oldman, Robbie Coltrane, Maggie Smith, Tom Felton, Harry Melling, David Thewlis, and many more.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss Hary Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the fifth film in the Harry Potter show. Starring Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch, Daniel Radcliffe, Alan Rickman, and Emma Watson. Harry Potter is expelled from Hogwarts and joins a secret society to try and stop Lord Voldemort's return. More of a legal thriller than one might suspect, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix cuts down the longest book in the series to a lean (by Harry Potter standards) 138 minutes. Imelda Staunton is especially good as the stubborn teacher Dolores Umbridge. While at times it feels a bit like filler (can't Harry Potter fight Voldemort and finish him off already?), the more adult themes make this a rather cracking entry.

Episode 99 is here, and this week, Liam and Rob look back at one of the most beloved blockbusters of the 90s. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves might well be a decidedly flawed movie, but it remains one that is arguably all the better for its idiosyncrasies - whether it be Costner's LA accent, Christian Slater's hair or the fact that, despite being quite brilliant, Alan Rickman is acting in a completely different movie to everyone else on screen. Yes, Prince of Thieves is far from perfect, but there is a reason why Costner remains the de facto Robin Hood for a generation of moviegoers.
Bonnie and Felicia discuss the Diaries of Alan Rickman! Join us next month, the book club is open to all live last Tuesday of the month!
This memoir represents Tom Felton's reflection on his own life growing up in the film industry, including the iconic role of Draco Malfoy that he is probably most known for, though he's been in other films and in television. He focuses a lot of the memoir on his time filming the Harry Potter movies, which isn't surprising because those films took up a significant portion of his adolescence. He tells the readers about many of the actors that had significant influence on him, including Alan Rickman, who played Severus Snape, Richard Harris and Michael Gambon, who both played Dumbledore, and a few actors got more minor mentions in the memoir: Matthew Lewis who played Neville, Jamie Waylett and Josh Herdman who played Crabbe and Goyle, and of course Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe, and Emma Watson who played Ron, Harry, and Hermione. For the rest of the memoir, we get a glimpse of the projects before Harry Potter, the projects after, and some of his personal life, struggles with mental health, and friendships that meant a lot to him.What motivated Tom to share his story? How did his memoir compare to others we've read? Join us as we discuss these questions and more in episode two of season two of our spoiler-filled podcast.Questions: The questions discussed in this episode come from Oprah Daily → https://www.oprahdaily.com/entertainment/a31047508/book-club-questions/Great music huh?!

MuggleCast: the Harry Potter podcast
MuggleCast returns January 10th with new episodes, but until then we're releasing one of our favorite episodes of Bonus MuggleCast that we initially recorded for Patrons earlier in the year! In this installment, we discuss the late actor Alan Rickman's diary entries about playing Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies. As you might expect from a diary, he is very candid about his work and the cast members around him. Prepare to be surprised by how he felt while filming each Harry Potter movie! For more installments of Bonus MuggleCast, pledge to our Patreon today at Patreon.com/mugglecast. In 2023, we'll be releasing two Bonus MuggleCast episodes every month!
In this episode we discuss dreams of being a Nepo Baby, Maddy's family trip to the mall, "hilarious" car decals, not getting hit on, the opening 9/11 reference, being a Hugh Gurl, the horrendous fat shaming of Natalie and more, Colin Firth being typecast as the "Hot Cuck", the mindblowing age gap between Keira Knightley and Sam, Mia the receptionist aka the biggest villain in history, how much Liv hated the porn scenes, the horror of Aurelia's sitch, slow dancing with your boss, the creepy (cough cough incestuous) nature of Laura Linney's relationship with her brother, being a "pellow" kid, being jealous of Joanna and SO MUCH MORE!!!
Look, we apologize in advance for how long this episode is, but there is SO. MUCH. HERE. Erika and Paul are diving deep into 2003's Love Actually and, frankly, they may never recover. The highs! The lows! Everything in between! It's all on the table as That Aged Well tackles this Christmas classic!
Lock up your daughters (especially if Colin Firth is moping around with some loose papers), and keep an eye on that randy PM, as we immerse ourselves in the Christmas overindulgence that is Richard Curtis's Love Actually. Can we please stop calling totally normally proportioned Martine McCutcheon chubby? Did Mark, aka the Cue Card Guy, deserve the hate he got for his visual proclamation? And are the porn couple the only healthy relationship in this whole film? Or is it Bill Nighy's aging rockstar and his manager? We're too busy tearing up over the actual people welcoming each other home at Heathrow to come up with any answers.

96. Die Hard (1988)Yippee Ki-Yay Mr. Falcon!On this holiday edition of Hate Watch/Great Watch, we tackle a blockbuster alt Christmas classic - Die Hard (1988)! Not exactly a deep cut, but in traditional HWGW fashion, the conversation covers a lot of ground including the flick's lasting influence in TV shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Rick and Morty, and Bob's Burgers; and the greatness of the cast (specifically Alan Rickman and Paul Gleeson), and the role of Beethoven's Ode to Joy. Plus - We question what exactly makes a Die Hard, Hunter invents a few Die Hards and, real talk: Al Powell definitely shot Urkel, right?
Katie and Bridget and special guest(!) our cousin Dave(!) crawl through a vent as they re-watch the classic movie: Die Hard! First and foremost this IS a Christmas movie, that really gets you in the holiday spirit with all the music, Christmas trees, and there's even snow! Well it's actually burning bonds and ash flying from the sky... But that's kind of like snow! Come along as we follow John McClane, a NYC cop who was just trying to crash his estranged wife's Christmas party. He gets roped into saving the day and squaring off against the evil Hans Gruber - a guy who makes it clear that he's a VERY GOOD THIEF! Will John be able to save the day despite being entirely shoeless!? Does Argyle deserve his own laugh track every time he comes into a scene? Released in 1988, this movie helped skyrocket Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman into movie stardom.
Stuck In The Middle - A Gen X Podcast
Yippee-Ki-Yay, Slackers! Is it or isn't it? That's the million dollar question. In my humble opinion, "Die Hard" is absolutely a Christmas movie! The setting, themes, and overall story arc...all the ingredients are there for a Christmas movie. It's a little Hallmark, a little "Home Alone", with lots and lots of explosions and generally chaotic action fare. What's not to love? But "Die Hard" isn't the only Christmas themed action flick. A recent Mel Gibson vehicle has made its way into my holiday movie rotation, while a new release starring David Harbour is currently in theaters. Do you have a favorite Christmas action movie?

It was so great talking with Lisa Eichhorn that I asked her about a lot more than Cutter's Way. We discussed her work with John Schlesinger, her friendship with Alan Rickman, and more.

MuggleCast: the Harry Potter podcast
This week the hosts are joined by Andy of Harry Potter Fan Zone, and Chapter by Chapter continues with chapters 13 and 14 of Sorcerer's Stone. Listen as we discuss the real-life origins of Nicolas Flamel, debate whether 'Sorcerer's Stone' or 'Philosopher's Stone' is a better title, and revisit a fan theory about what Dumbledore did with alchemy. Then, the trio visit Hagrid's Hut and Harry uses his powers of persuasion that he may or may not have inherited from Voldemort?! All this and more, including: Welcome back, Andy! Check out Harry Potter Fan Zone, the top Australian HP fan site. News: Many new books are now available including Tom Felton's autobiography, Alan Rickman's posthumous diary, and Order of the Phoenix illustrated by Jim Kay. The hosts discuss which ones they'll be checking out. Main Discussion #1: Sorcerer's Stone, Chapter 13: Nicolas Flamel 7-Word Summary: Secrets are revealed when chocolate is eaten. We never did find out what work Dumbledore and Nicolas did on alchemy. Did Fantastic Beasts reveal more? We review an old fan theory that we love about Credence's origins. In talking about the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone, Andrew explains who was responsible for the title change. Which is better, saying "Sorcerer's Stone" (snappy, alliterative) or "Philosopher's Stone" (boring)? Andy and the American hosts all debate. The hosts review some early Mary GrandPré artwork including an alternate cover that Andy shares with the title "Harry Potter and the School of Magic". In fact, Harry Potter Fan Zone has the most impressive gallery of official artwork, exhaustingly sourced and categorized by Andy. Worth your time to check out! Main Discussion #2: Sorcerer's Stone, Chapter 14: Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback 7-Word Summary: Hagrid reveals illegal practices inside his hut This rare chapter is, in many ways, completely self-contained. The conflict presented is resolved at the end. Life lessons from HP #???: Flattery will get you ev-erywhere! Andrew's new proposal of an HBO Max television show features Hagrid and his pet dragon. We're in love. Hagrid clearly has a soft spot for clearly dangerous creatures. Is this intentional foreshadowing to his plotline in Chamber of Secrets? Is it reckless for Ron not to be honest with Madame Pomfrey about his bite? What if it's magically infected? The scene with Charlie's friends is unspoilt by adaptation. What do we see when we see it in our heads? We close out the chapter with our MVPs of the Week Next Week: It's a MuggleMail episode! Send us your thoughts on our recent chapters or tell us what's on your mind!
