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.
Katie and Joe talk about how MoviePass surge pricing made them cancel and move to the AMC A-List. After giving another story of weird adventures at the concession stand, our group reviews the surreal but stellar Sorry to Bother You, and the NOT ORIGINAL Skyscraper.
We survived the intense heat of July 4th and bring you our thoughts on the critically acclaimed indie film The Rider, the hilarious big budget superhero movie Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the disappointment with The First Purge.
We saw a bunch of movies this week, despite busy schedules and work trips. The group goes over their thoughts on Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Kristen gives us here positive thoughts on Hearts Beat Loud, and then Joe raves about Won't You Be My Neighbor and Uncle Drew. Please note we forgot to nominate people to the Pyramid, so we'll do that next week on the next episode!
After taste testing some weird flavors of Twizzlers, our group explains our new Podcast feature, The Pyramid where we rank actors into 5 different categories! Also any mentions of a video to go watch, unfortunately we had some technical issues so the livestream we did was lost. We'll have those issues ironed out for next time.
We took a field trip to take Kristen to her first Drive-In Movie Theater experience and we have the full report on all the craziness that ensued. We also have our takes on Hotel Artemis, Incredibles 2, and TAG!
It's June 2018 and a ton of movies are hitting the theaters! We discuss the spooky Hereditary, strong Oscar contender in First Reformed, the non-stop fun of Ocean's 8, and Adrift that misses the mark a bit.
Full slate of movies to talk about this week. We discuss the mediocrity of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the awesomeness of Upgrade, our conflicting response to Best F(r)iends Volume 2, and Action Point as well. In addition, we try and figure out what is better for the industry, big budget blockbusters, or giving more filmmakers a chance with smaller budget indie films.
