Our latest episode is about a movie called The Circle, where Emma Watson works a Google-like company helmed by Tom Hanks (who's supposed to be evil, but plainly states his intentions at every turn without hiding them). This was one of our least favorite movies, and we have a good time railing on it.
The Guardians of the Galaxy are back and so are we! In this episode we discuss the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, plus we talk trailers for The Last Jedi, Thor: Ragnarok, and The Hitman's Bodyguard. Plus Mike goes on rather long rant defending George Lucas that leaves Elizabeth confused.
What happens when 3 octagenarians decide they want to rob a bank? Well...hey, wait where are you going? Don't you want to hear what happens? You don't? Oh...well, here's our review of Going in Style, the comedy about Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin robbing a bank.
In this episode we review Unforgettable (which contrary to the film's name, is actually quite forgettable). It stars Rosario Dawson, Katherine Heigl, and the true star of the film, the guy who played Craig in Wedding Crashers. We expose some of the film's many plot holes, dissect its dumb ending, and also talk about trailers for Annabelle: Creation and The Beguiled.
Tonight is the NFL Draft so we thought it would be a good time to review one of our favorite bad movies, 2014's Draft Day. Starring Kevin Costner, it follows the GM of the Cleveland Browns on the day of the draft as he deals with having the #1 pick and a weirdly shoehorned subplot about his pregnant girlfriend (played by Jennifer Garner). We discuss just how stupid the myriad trades made by Costner in the film are and, how the movie glosses over the evils of the NFL, and how the movie kind of foreshadowed Johnny Manziel's fate.
It's the review you didn't ask for of a movie you didn't see! In today's episode we review Keeping Up With the Joneses, a 2016 film we rented in 2017 at Elizabeth's insistence. The highlight of this episode is us arguing over whether Mike would be more angry if we'd seen this turd in a theater or at home. Sure, you don't really care what we have to say about this movie, but you don't listen for the reviews really, do you? You listen for our hilarious banter!
If you thought Matt Damon starring in a movie about the Great Wall of China was a stretch, wait til you listen to our review of Ghost in the Shell! In this episode we talk about how the film's "resolution" of its casting controversy is actually more offensive than we expected, and also whether it was "not that bad" or simply "bad."
