Joker (2019)

It’s Halloween, so I’m going to quote the Sanderson Sisters: “We’re baaack”!

It has been an awful long time since Alex and I have posted, and we seriously apologize for that. We explain our hiatus in the episode, but the long and short of it is that we have been discussing some big changes for our podcast.

This is a super long episode, and we are very excited to share it with you! Don’t forget to let us know what you think of our changes so we can make this the best podcast possible.

Thanks for listening!

Ramping Up for “Joker”

Hello listeners!

So first things first, sorry for the late posting of this one! We experienced some technical difficulties and crazy work schedules that prevented us from getting this up at our usual time. We thank you all for your patience.

In this episode, Alex and I talk about the many interpretations of Gotham City’s notorious psychotic clown in anticipation of Joaquin Pheonix’s newest film, “Joker”.

As always, we thank you so much for listening.


The Kitchen and a Triumphant Return


Okay, so we’re sorry for the unplanned hiatus. As it turns out, moving your entire life a state over (below?) is not a quick or easy process, and starting a new job at the same time doesn’t help for sure.

All that being said, we are both soooo excited to be back with a new episode this week!

We’re talking about the box office and critical flop “The Kitchen”, starring Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elizabeth Moss. We’ve got some hot n’ spicy takes on this one folks.

As always, thanks so much for listening and we hope you enjoy this episode. Oh, and since I’m just now realizing that we forgot out Social Media Plug in the episode, I’m going to remind you thank you can find us at @shotforshotcast on Instagram, @shotforshotpodcast on Facebook, or at

Happy listening!


A Grab-Bag Episode/Monica’s Farewell

Hello listeners!

You’ve read that title right, I’m afraid. We didn’t see a movie so we made a grab-bag instead. Our sincere apologies.

Oh, and I’m moving to Florida.

But don’t fret for even a moment, because I’ve bought my own microphone and Alex and I have every intention of continuing Shot for Shot for the foreseeable future. We will return to our regular content for the next episode.

In this grab-bag, Alex and I discuss some of the movie news fresh from SDCC last week and give you our new trailer reactions.

As always, we thank you so much for listening!


Spider-Man: Far From Home

Hello Listeners!

In an unsurprising turn of events, Alex and I are going to talk about a Marvel movie. At least we’re consistent.

Even so, we had a really good time with this episode, and we think it will be a nice salve for all of the Marvel fans who saw this movie and left wondering what the f**k is going on.

As always, we thank you so much for tuning in! Please feel free to leave us feedback on any of our social media platforms or on Apple Podcasts.

Independence Day (1996)

Hello Listeners!

Alex and I are back with another RETRO REVIEW, just in time for July 4th.

We’ve mentioned before that we’d like to make our way through IMDb’s Modern Classics list, and this is one of them.

As always, we hope you enjoy the episode!


Hello Listeners!

Alex and I are back this week (A little late in the evening) with a review for a movie a little bit outside of our usual range.

We had a great time discussing Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut and reminiscing on our own high school days.

As always, we thank you so much for listening and supporting us, it means a lot!

Until next time,


Shot for Shot Deep Dive – Fat Thor

Hello Listeners!

Alex and I are coming at ya this week with a new episode format that we’ve been considering for a while now. We’re calling it “Deep Dive” until we think of a better name.

Sometimes in an episode, me and Alex find that there are topics we felt we could’ve talked more about, but had to move on from in the interest of keeping our episodes to roughly an hour.

These Deep Dives are a place where we can further discuss the topic, update you on if our opinion has changed, or bring up new information. Let us know what you think!

For this episode, we’re talking more about the arguably controversial “Fat Thor” in Avengers: Endgame. We discuss fatphobia, writing characters with trauma, and more!

We hope you enjoy!

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Hello Listeners!

This week, Alex and Monica are taking on the latest attempt at bringing a video game to the big screen: Detective Pikachu!

WARNING: This episode has startlingly high levels of foolishness. We’re probably just giddy because we GRADUATED COLLEGE THIS WEEKEND.

If you have any questions or comments for us, please feel free to contact us here or follow the links below to our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Thanks for listening!


Avengers: Endgame -Unscripted Thoughts


You didn’t think we wouldn’t talk about Endgame did you?

The spoiler ban on Avengers: Endgame is lifted! And so, Monica and Alex are going to talk about what Alex has called one of “the biggest cultural events of the 21st century!” Avengers: Endgame has broken nearly every box office record, and is quickly catching up to James Cameron’s Avatar as the highest grossing film of all time! 

In this spur-of-the-moment episode, Monica and Alex share their thoughts and feelings about the 3-hour epic that has been 11 years in the making! We have a lot of thoughts and opinions on the culmination of 21 films, but we also want to know what you think! Please feel free to let us know your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or our own website!

Happy listening, and thank you for listening to Shot For Shot!
