It's a mad dash for movie studios to get their movies out and we're trying our best to stay up to date. This week we get into the holiday spirit with The Grinch, impressed with the stellar craftsmanship of Widows, and are perplexed by the very uneven Crimes of Grindelwald.
We saw two fantastic films and a disappointing movie this week, and it's probably not the one you think! Kristen joins Joe for his Mediocre Monday Movie this week with the disjointed Wildlife, the gang can't stop gushing about how wonderful Can You Ever Forgive Me is, and finally the group can't stop looking away from all the gushing blood and gore from the high octane Overlord.
This week we discuss advanced line cutting techniques when trying to get your movie concessions, gush about Jonah Hill's stellar film Mid90s, and try to make sense of our feelings around the well acted but completely sensationalized Bohemian Rhapsody.
The end of October brings us Halloween, submarines and films about addiction! This week we discuss the fun of Gerard Butler in Hunter Killer, and the well acted but mediocre Beautiful Boy. We then give you a few of our favorite horror movies to watch on this upcoming spooky Halloween night.
When we aren't seeing movies, we are enjoying the process of reading 1-Star Reviews about Movie Theaters and Cruises. After that though, we discuss how impressed we were with the hard hitting but masterfully done The Hate U Give. While the box office was buzzing about the return of Michael Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween, we were a little less enthralled with the quality and just how safe they played it. At least John Carpenter's music was still stellar! Finally, we finish off the...
Our intrepid group of movie fanatics discuss the unfortunate nature of First Man getting buried by the Venom / Star is Born hype. They then move on to review the delightfully well crafted The Old Man & the Gun with Robert Redford, and then the good but slightly missing the mark Bad Times at the El Royale. As always, the group then finishes up the podcast by inducting Robert Redford and Jeff Bridges into the acting Pyramid.
What a week for movies! In addition to us talking about going to a different movie theater and all the weirdness that brings, we talk about the riveting First Man, the stellar A Star is Born, the over the top campiness of Venom, and then Kristen gives us her positive impressions on The Sisters Brothers.
After a few minutes of trying to avoid the topic, Joey & Kristen share their many disappointments with Life Itself. Seriously, don't go see this movie. After that they gush about how much fun Hellfest was, and give a glowing review of the stellar Colette.
We try to make sense of the surreal Mandy, and then we have a fun time with The House With a Clock In Its Walls. Our intrepid group then gives you some of their favorite Surreal & Family Friendly Horror films.
Kristen reports on the Glenn Close acting tour de force that is The Wife, the style of A Simple Favor is off the charts but the ending needs some work, White Boy Rick might be the most disappointing movie of the year, and The Predator is a fun action movie romp!
It's one of the last slow movie weekends of the year before we enter the mad dash leading to Oscar season. This week we go see the Jennifer Garner revenge film Peppermint, the jump scares of The Nun, and the brutality of A Prayer Before Dawn. We also induct a ton of people into the Pyramid, and unveil our new review system!
We're back from vacation and we have a ton of movies to discuss! Joe gives us the low-down on the surprising Alpha, and the down right awful A-X-L. Kristen is super confused as to why this Papillon remake had to exist. As a group we think Operation Finale is just fine, Searching is fantastic, and then Katie & Joe think American Animals is supremely great and unique.
We said we were going to be on vacation, but we found some time to watch movies! Joey gives us the lowdown on the awful Slender Man film, Kristen is deeply disappointed with Mile 22, and the group goes through the really fun Crazy Rich Asians.
Katie gets really upset with Christopher Robin, we give our thoughts on the heavy BlackkKlansman, Kristen gushes about the campy fun of The Meg, and Katie & Joe discuss the average-ness that is Hot Summer Nights. We also discuss recent changes to the Academy Awards, the latest update to MoviePass, and also induct some new members to the Pyramid.
This week we talk about 3 stellar movies! First up is the fantastic Joaquin Phoenix / Jonah Hill Oscar showpiece Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot. We then move over to the expertly crafted Blindspotting written by childhood friends where the town of Oakland takes center stage. Finishing up the week, we talk about the Mission: Impossible - Fallout which may very well be one of the best action movies ever filmed! Just as a bonus, we give you 9 of our favorite Tom Cruise movies that you...
What a week for movies! After a brief update on how widespread the MoviePass Surge Pricing is, we give our thoughts on the subdued Leave No Trace, the very loud and fun Mamma Mia! 2, the disappointing Equalizer 2, and the thrilling and entertaining Unfriended: Dark Web.
