Episode 100: The Harry Potter Effect – Top 5 Films Involving Magic

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ hits theaters this week, and EJ and Matt truly wanted to review the film for you, but it turned out to be uninspiring and we wanted to give you an epic 100th episode, so we went on a tangent. We instead discuss our ‘Top 5 Films Involving Magic.’

Matt gets stuck in the 80s rabbit hole of sorcery, and EJ panders to his inner 90s teenage witch.

Strap yourself in buckaroos! Episode 100 of the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast is here.

About the Monkeys Fighting Robots Podcast:
Matthew Sardo EJ moreno Monkeys Fighting Robots Podcast

A Gen Xer and a Millennial debate the latest topics in pop culture. One guy is a filmmaker and the other is a journalist, but both are nerds. We make your slowest days at work better. Hosts, Matthew Sardo and EJ Moreno.

Never heard of Matt Sardo?
For starters, he made the Kessel Run in less than 11 parsecs. Prior to that, he gave Doc Brown the idea for the flux capacitor and led the Resistance to victory over SkyNet – all while sipping a finely crafted IPA. As a radio host, he’s interviewed celebrities, athletes and everyone in between. He’s covered everything from the Super Bowl to Comic-Con.

Who is EJ Moreno?
Is he a trained physician? No. Is he a former Miss Universe contestant? Possibly. But what we know for sure is he’s a writer, filmmaker, and pop culture enthusiast. Since film school, EJ has written & directed several short films. He’s used his passion of filmmaking to become a movie critic for MonkeysFightingRobots.com.
