In what's becoming a running trend, we've recorded another episode where Mike's seen the movie and Elizabeth hasn't. In this one Mike explains his review of Isle of Dogs to Elizabeth, plus Elizabeth predicts the next movie she'll kick Mike out of the house to see by himself.
If you're a big fan of historical farcical tragicomedies, The Death of Stalin is for you. In today's episode we review the Armando Iannuci-directed comedy. Gotta tell you, if you're a fan of Nucky Thompson (like Mike is), you'll probably dig Buscemi's performance in this one. There's no better Buscemi than Conniving Prick Buscemi.
Reboot Alert! We're back to talk Tomb Raider, the uninspired reboot of the uninspired adaptation of the mediocre video game. Actually, we didn't play it so we don't know if it was mediocre. If the movies are any indication, it was. While it was a bland film, this episode is anything but as we had a fun time ripping it apart. We end on Mike giving a rambling plug for Elizabeth's Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/elizabethreid), which features her awesome portraits of movie stars.
And the Academy Award for "Movie with the Worst Timing" goes to....Death Wish! Mike saw this one by himself, but Elizabeth is still on hand to hear him recount the gory details. We talk about the film and about how Elizabeth kicked Mike out of the house, leading him to see this ill-fated remake of the Charles Bronson classic.
We're back with a review of the sequel nobody asked for, Pacific Rim: Uprising. We saw this one in IMAX 3D at the AMC Lincoln Center 13 - pound for pound one of the best screens in the country. We give our review of the film and talk about the trailer for Rock's new film Skyscraper (aka Die Hard with One Leg). Bonus - this episode may feature one of Mike's shakiest intros ever. There's something for everybody.
It's our second annual March Madness episode! No movie review - today we're just giving our 2018 NCAA Tournament picks. Mike asks Elizabeth to give her rationale for a lot of her picks while displaying his blind homerism for Virginia Tech, plus we make some big bets on a few unlikely outcomes. For the Venn Diagram of college basketball and movie fans (of which Elizabeth predicts there are none), this is a can't-miss episode.
In our latest episode we review A Wrinkle In Time. We discuss how it stacks up to the book as well as Elizabeth's kinship with anyone sharing her last name of Reid. Plus we review the trailers for Mary Poppins Returns, Hotel Transylvania 3, and Christopher Robin.
