Aaron and Sean promise that they talk about Moana on this week's episode. They do. They really do. They just talk about the Disney/Netflix rumors and the overall state of the movie business, for better and for worse, for a while first. But then — Moana! Which is good! Happy Thanksgiving, moviegoers!
Sean is joined by official YCHTT next-host-up Missy Moreno (@sikeitsmissy) to review FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM, the Harry Potter spin-off. Plus, stuff on the new WONDER WOMAN trailer and — because Missy is here — diversions about Star Wars aplenty!
Sean and Aaron reviewed the remake of Magnificent Seven earlier this year, so it's only natural that they deal with the original. No, not the Yul Brynner one, the ORIGINAL — Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. And thanks to Row House Cinema, they did it with bento boxes and tea! Plus: no politics! We promise!
Eric Leslie (@ravenlock) returns to the show to join Sean in facing off with the following: latest Marvel installment DOCTOR STRANGE; a mall guard who kicks them out of a mall that has no business giving mall guards Segways anymore; an insanely nitpicky gripe with John Carpenter's Halloween; and much more!
More than 150 episodes after her initial appearance, Addi Twigg (@addiful) returns to the show to talk about the Da Vinci Code sequel INFERNO, quiz Sean on inappropriate activities he engaged in as a teenager and, of course, use foul language. Plus an evaluation of Tom Hanks (pre- and post-David Pumpkins) and more!
Various people, including Aaron, told Sean that the first Jack Reacher movie was good, and now Sean is very angry at all of them. How the second Jack Reacher flick went so horribly wrong, chat about the great short Echo Torch and much more!
The annual trip to the ScareHouse Basement features a whole lot of Happy the Clown tormenting Sean, which JUST SEEMS TO KEEP HAPPENING. Interviews with ScareHouse head honcho Scott Simmons and several Basement dwellers and much more! Find out what lurks beneath the haunted hotspot!
HEY SPOILER WARNING. Sean is joined by Ayne Terceira (@chixwithschtix) of Uncumber Theatrics and ScareHouse fame to break down the highly anticipated thriller GIRL ON THE TRAIN. They quickly discover there's really no way to discuss it without spoilers, so they spoil LITERALLY EVERYTHING. HERE'S ANOTHER SPOILER WARNING. It's a really thorough discussion, though, so maybe see the movie and then listen. SPOILER WARNING AGAIN DON'T GET MAD AT US.
How many times this summer can Sean and Aaron watch a bird strike an aircraft? At least one more! It's a review of the true-story disaster flick DEEPWATER HORIZON, which did not go the way your hosts were expecting. Plus comments on the best (and blandest) movie music and more!
Sean was so pumped for this one that he actually watched an old movie! Your hosts tangle with the MAGNIFICENT SEVEN remake, reveal their contributions to the "describe yourself using fictional characters" memespolosion and much more!
Sean and Aaron hit the road to talk about BLAIR WITCH! From a hotel room in Cleveland, they break down the past-due sequel to the found footage hit. But they're sleepy. Listen to this one while snuggling!
Birds. Sean and Aaron take in Clint Eastwood's (sorta) dramatic retelling of the Miracle on the Hudson. Birds. Will the movie find a way to stretch 208 seconds to 90 minutes? Birds. Plus, the debut of the new segment that doesn't have a name yet in Extra Butter! Birds!
We don't get all of our ideas for retro episodes from the posters on your freshman year dorm room wall — but when it works, it works. Aaron and Sean review SCARFACE, pay tribute to Gene Wilder, definitely prove that Aaron has seen way more movies than Sean and much more!
There's some serious hype around the suspenseful horror flick DON'T BREATHE — will noted horror goofs Aaron and Sean be impressed? Plus mini-reviews, plenty on Aaron's latest Doug Loves Movies appearance, a long conversation about county fairs for some reason and much more!
Why dedicate an episode to an indie Western? Because it's awesome, that's why. A review of this hidden gem plus a bunch of YCHTT favorite topics with first-time guests Steve Gottschalk and Renee Rabenold of the forthcoming By Day By Night Podcast!
Sean and Aaron tangle with the ridiculous, R-rated cartoon. Will the over-the-top festival of bad jokes work as a ridiculous party flick — and is there more to it? Plus mini-reviews, more Stranger Things and more Suicide Squad!
Sean is joined by his Epicast sister Marta Mazzoni (@icantfindmarta) to finally encounter the long-hyped SUICIDE SQUAD. Will it disappoint (like Batman v Superman) or surprise (like things not made by DC)? Plus, a preview of Marta's interview with a STRANGER THINGS cast member! For real! (WARNING: Minor Stranger Things spoilers in the closing moments of this episode.)
A stream-of-consciousness conversation winds into, around, and back to JASON BOURNE, the latest entry in the long-running action franchise. Trailer trash makes Sean leave the room. SPOILER WARNING: A key (???) Jason Bourne plot point is accidentally revealed.
Can a three-minute short be converted to a full feature and actually be halfway decent? The answer may surprise you! Sean and Aaron review the horror flick LIGHTS OUT before an extended extra butter wherein Aaron raves about the new Netflix series STRANGER THINGS.
Sean and Aaron are joined by returning guest Missy Moreno (@sikeitsmissy), Aaron's unofficial little sister/Sean's unofficial life coach, to bust some ghosts! After a year of (annoying) social media chatter about the comedy reboot, how did the flick actually turn out? Plus, Missy makes things raunchy!

Sean and Aaron welcome first-time guest Shannon Norman (@shambonez) to talk about the third and hopefully final PURGE flick. It used to be horror, then it was action, now it's lazy political satire!
Sean and Aaron are taking a rare week off, but here's a quick one with some of Sean's thoughts on pressing movie matters. YCHTT will be back next week!
Sean calls in YCHTT Emotions Correspondent Amy Whipple because there's a new Pixar movie out. Both were optimistic about FINDING DORY, but the movie ends up hitting home for Amy way more than they could've expected. Plus, an Extra Butter on the first movies you should show a young child. (Sean makes a bad choice.)
