Volume 2
Kristen Stewart: An Exhaustive Examination

On the Road (2012)
Marylou is chill 16 year old bride who knows how to roll her own joints. She’s married to Dean, an adult man, who apparently taught her how to roll joints. One day, Dean leaves for Denver and takes a mistress. A year or so later, she’s still kind of with Dean, and travels with him to visit their friend Sal for Thanksgiving in North Carolina. Soon they’re all on the road together, heading to New York City to ring in the new year of 1949. Around this time, Marylou hooks with Sal, but everyone’s cool with it as Dean is pretty clearly into open relationships. Marylou, Dean, and Sal hit the road once more, this time bound for San Francisco – with a short detour to return a husband to his wife on Louisiana. As they head west, Marylou worries Dean will leave her once they arrive in San Francisco. She also reveals her desire to settle down and have a child, which she may do with her fiancé back in Denver. Dean does totally immediately take off as soon they arrive in San Francisco, and after sharing a hotel room with Sal,  Marylou declares that being on the road is no longer for her and heads to Denver to start fresh and marry her sailor fiancé. 

Join co-hosts Vanessa and Toben as they journey through an actor’s filmography, in chronological order, in an effort to definitively determine – using a refined academic and scientific process – that actor’s best movie.

Their quest began in Volume 1 with one of the most pressing cinematic questions of our time: what’s the best Blake Lively movie?
In Volume 2, Vanessa and Toben seek out the best Kristen Stewart movie.

“It is all a Dream, a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists but you. And You are but a Thought — a vagrant Thought, a useless Thought, a homeless Thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities.”

We’re just all wandering on this path, seeking meaning in this existence as wrestling fans. Is the road to WrestleMania littered with broken dreams and unfulfilled promises? Has what remaining magic the Bullet Club had been killed entirely? Does Stardom’s new website spark joy? Is EVE and the NJ Cup enough to lift us out of this wallowing pit? Is Fighting With My Family the best movie that WWE Studios has ever made?

Volume 1
Blake Lively: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 15 – All I See Is You

Gina – a vivid dreamer – has been blind since a childhood car accident. She lives in Bangkok, Thailand, with her husband, who helps her navigate the city when needed. One day, during a visit with a doctor, Gina learns of a procedure that could help restore her vision. A few weeks later, Gina has the surgery and is thrilled to be able to see for the first time in her adult life. As she embraces the pleasures of sight, her husband struggles to adapt to a life in which he’s not as in control in the relationship as he once was.
Their relationship takes a tough turn after a visit to Spain with Gina’s sister and her horny husband. Upon returning to Thailand, the whole situation gets real mysterious: IS HER HUSBAND SWAPPING OUT HER MEDICAL EYE DROPS WITH WATER TO MAKE HER GO BLIND AGAIN SO HE CAN REGAIN CONTROL OF THE RELATIONSHIP?
Also, at some point, Gina totally taps the handsome neighbor man, because her husband is being a real weirdo and practically made her do it. The relationship deteriorates further and soon Gina discovers the eye drops ruse – so she decides to fake being blind again to see what’s up with her husband. It all comes to a head at a fancy concert thingy in which Gina and a student she’d been tutoring for music sing a song together about seeing things and love. Gina’s husband runs off in a fit of guilt and then probably dies in a car wreck. Later, Gina has a baby – WHICH IS DEFINITELY THE HANDSOME NEIGHBOR’s BABY.

Volume 2
Kristen Stewart: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 7: Zathura (2005)
Lisa is a moody, sleep positive teen, whose fun and carefree life is thrown askew by having to babysit her two younger brothers when their dad must head to work unexpectedly. Soon after dad leaves, Lisa is informed by her brothers that their house has been transported to space, thanks to Zathura – a magical board game they found in the basement. A skeptical Lisa is soon frozen as the game places her in cryo-sleep. She awakens 5 turns later, unaware of what has transpired. Cold and still groggy from from her slumber, she turns up the thermostat and grabs a shower. When she finally reunites with her brothers downstairs, she is shocked to find that the kitchen is on fire and also that the house is indeed in space – and being chased by aliens!
She soon is brought up to speed on the whole situation and becomes acquainted with a strangely handsome astronaut – a player who’s been stuck in space for 15 years.  After fending off the invaders, the last of which Lisa kills with a piano, the group gathers to finish the magic board game. As the final turn approaches, IT’S REVEALED THAT THE SPACEMAN IS ACTUALLY ONE OF HER BROTHERS WHO HAS BEEN STUCK IN A PARADOX IN THE GAME FOR 15 YEARS. Once that weirdness has passed, the family finishes the game and are sucked into a black hole! Lisa and her brothers awaken back home, as if no time had transpired. As they head out to visit their mother, Lisa and the boys agree to carry the secret of Zathura to the grave.

Episode 6: Undertow (2004) & Fierce People (2005)

Undertow: Lila is a moody southern girl living in rural Georgia with an emotional, overprotective dad who does not approve of her barefoot boyfriend. She finds her relationship with Chris to be a struggle, though, and soon ends the relationship over concerns over boundaries and their age difference.

Fierce People: Maya is a privileged, moody, horse and art enthusiast teenager living in a tight-knit, closed-off upstate New York community. Her carefree summer plans take a turn when Finn, an outsider, arrives in the community, leading to a romantic connection. That connection is soon strained, though, as Maya’s brother causes trouble for both of them – and also murders his and Maya’s grandfather. As the traumatic events that tore the group apart begin to fade with the end of summer, Maya and Finn part ways on a hopeful note for the future.

Episode 5: Catch That Kid (2004)
A moody, urban-climber cool girl, Maddy just wants to follow in her father’s footsteps and become an accomplished mountain climber. Too bad she’s stuck in the city with no mountains to climb, and parents who are worried about her daredevil antics. One day, her father collapses due to an old mountain coming injury. The exorbitant medical bills are a cold dose of reality to Maddy and her mother – the head of security of at a local bank. Without the safety net of universal health insurance, Maddy is forced into a life-altering decision – embrace a life of crime to save her father, or allow the sins of capitalism to claim the life of a loved one. She chooses the ethical path and is soon plotting a bank heist with her dude pals. When the boys’ lustful nature threatens the entire operation, Maddy must one again take charge and convince the boys to stay focused on the mission. After utilizing her free- climbing prowess, Maddy “hacks” onto her mom’s vault and absconds with enough money to pay for her dad’s surgery. With her main concern resolved, Maddy faces a secondary – much less important choice – deciding if she wants to date either of the boyz she used to help rob the bank. She doesn’t and runs off into the hills, embracing her free spirited-ness.
