Josh Gad has utilized his time during the COVID-19 outbreak quite well, creating his own YouTube series, titled Reunited Apart. It’s quite the heartwarming concept in-order to bring attention to charities, while chatting it up with the cast and crew of some of the greatest films of all time! That’s saying something, as he’s already managed to get the Fellowship back together and bring The Goonies out of retirement. It shows that Josh Gad probably has some pretty good home cooking or deep connections, as I still don’t understand how he puts these episodes together? However, he deserves some praise, not only for the reunions, but also tying each episode together with a charity. In turn, it’s a way to bring attention to good causes, and if you’d like to learn more, make sure to visit Josh Gad’s YouTube channel!
Charities include: No Kid Hungry, DigDeep, Project HOPE and The Center for Disaster Philanthropy. However, I urge you to research the charities before donating money, so you know where it ends up and for what cause.
Below, you’ll find all 4 episodes of Reunited Apart, with quotes and a few words to get you intrigued.
Also, the next episode will air on the 15th of June, 2020! Who you gonna call?
The Lord of the Rings
Isn’t it great to hear Andy Serkis speaking like Gollum and Smeagol for old times’ sake? It’s quite humorous, seeing him put on a bit of a show, willing to indirectly joke about President Trump’s recent remarks. While I won’t go too deep into that, it’s apparent that Andy Serkis knows what his obnoxious fans want from him. Ironically enough, I’m one of them. Surely he know what his efforts mean to his fans, who’d gladly walk with him to Mount Doom!
Of course, Andy Serkis is joined by his former co-stars, with Peter Jackson and Elijah Wood chatting it up about The Lord of the Rings! Quite the shocker? Well, it’s great to see them come together, with plenty laughter and bickering, topped off with a few heartwarming moments. It’s not enough that they showed off their tattoos, they also answered questions and made a lot of small talk. It’s like the perfect sundae, isn’t it? If the sundae is the Fellowship of the Ring, I suppose. Anyways, watch the cast and crew get Reunited Apart!
PS. If you’d like to see Sir Ian McKellen casually sip red wine (08:34) and joke about his sexuality (30:05), view the timestamps. In all honesty, the man’s a living legend and a national treasure, so he must be procted by all cost!
Back to the Future
It melts my heart, seeing Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd having a conversation with Lea Thompson. It truly brings back memories, doesn’t it? Well, if you’re childhood consisted of repeated viewings of the Back to the Future trilogy, you most likely know the feeling. I’m sure that the reminiscing from the cast and crew will hit the hearts of many, with the sheer enthusiasm from Fox, Lloyd and Thompson setting the stage beautifully.
The Goonies was special, wasn’t it? A film that took the world by storm, with a simple story that was brought to life by the personalities of the children. They became beloved and quite memorable, each with their distinct archetype, arguably representing an entire generation. Whether that’s good or bad is irrelevant, as these characters brought as along for the ride and made us feel the family-vibe of The Goonies. Make sure to watch this episode of Reunited Apart!
It’s heartwarming to hear a simple story about John Candy, especially considering how Tom Hanks lights up when telling it. Ironically enough, I was merely 3 years old when he passed away in 1994. However, he left a prominent mark on comedy with his movies. It’s simply sad to think about all the people that we’re in Splash (1984) who are no longer with us: Dody Goodman, Howard Morris, Tony Longo and Richard B. Shull. Therefore it’s a quite an emotional Reunited Apart episode, yet it’s worth the rollercoaster of feels!
