Podcast Special Guest

Halvorsen has been a special guest on the FanEffect podcast sharing her opinion and reviews of several pop culture topics. Here are her favorites:

SHAZAM and How DC Finally Relaxed and Made a Fun Live-Action movie

  • When it comes to superhero movies, turning one into a comedy does not always “pan out” the way everyone wants. (e.g. Thor Ragnorok) Shazam sets the bar for the genre of superhero comedies, and it sets it high. Andy Farnsworth and Ryan Meeks are joined by KellieAnn Halvorsen and Johnny Mckeon to review this great addition to the DCEU. The consensus seems to be that whether or not you know who Shazam is, we think you will like this movie. Listen now. 

DUMBO and Disney’s Live-Action Cartoon Remake Empire

  • Andy Farnsworth is joined by guests KellieAnn Halvorsen and Natalie Mollinet to talk about the new live-action version of “Dumbo” directed by Tim Burton… then have a much more broad discussion about Disney’s live-action remakes of cartoon movie classics, including: Their favorites and least-liked movies so far; which upcoming movies are they most looking forward to and which are they hoping never make it to the big screen; and what do these remakes HAVE TO HAVE in order to be “good”? SHOW NOTE: This episode contains 100% more singing than any previous episode in “Fan Effect” history. Listen now. 

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” Deep Dive WITH SPOILERS

  • OK, you’ve seen “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and you’ve got questions! That’s what we’re here for. In this episode, Andy Farnsworth is joined by Harry Potter-philes Becky Bruce and KellieAnn Halvorsen for some deep, SPOILER-FILLED discussions of J.K. Rowling’s latest entry in the wizarding world we know and love. If you feel like you got a lot of info dumped on you by the end of the movie, we’ll help you sort it out, make sense of it and hopefully make your next viewing of “Fantastic Beasts 2” and the latest adventures of Newt Scamander even more enjoyable. Listen now.
