Annihilation

On our latest episode, we review Annihilation, starring Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and Oscar Isaac. We also discuss the trailer for Hereditary, Mike's problem with how much walking was shown in the movie, and why Elizabeth thought Holly Hunter was in it (she wasn't). 

We're back for the "Elizabeth's Birthday" edition of Bad Movie Friday. This week we celebrate the birth of this podcast's better half with a review of 2016 Hallmark movie "Anything for Love." The title has literally nothing to do with the plot. Here's the synopsis from IMDB: "A high-powered executive lies about her career on her dating profile, while her match also hides his true identity." See? In what way does that translate to "Anything for Love" making a lick of sense here?  

Phantom Thread

We're back with a review of Paul Thomas Anderson's latest, Phantom Thread. We talk about what made the movie so great and Elizabeth casts doubts on Daniel Day-Lewis's "retirement" announcement, comparing it to Jay Z's. 

Black Panther

On our latest episode, we're joined by our friends Kate and Warren to discuss Black Panther. In this wide ranging episode, we also discuss the trailer for Solo, the trailer for Ant-Man and Wasp, and inexplicably, a deep dive into the careers of both Michael Douglas and Tom Cruise. For anyone looking to skip directly to the Black Panther review, it starts up at around 19:22. 

The Godfather. Lord of the Rings. The Dark Knight. All great trilogies. But they pale in comparison to the epic tale of Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and the final installment, the magnum opus...Fifty Shades Freed. In today's episode we spend a good 26 minutes ripping on this piece of garbage. Mike gives his first 0 rating. Fans of this series should miss this episode. 

The Post

We're back with a short episode reviewing Hanks, Streep, and Spielberg's The Post. We were definitely underwhelmed. We talk about the expectations for a film with such an all star crew, the great acting performances, and the film's inability to pick one theme and stick with it. 

Mike's flying solo on this episode after watching The Cloverfield Paradox and declaring it so bad an "emergency podcast" was needed. Have a listen at Mike ripping on what may be the worst movie ever released directly after the Super Bowl.

I, Tonya

We're back with a review of the movie everyone seems to love (everyone meaning the critics, not Nancy Kerrigan), I, Tonya. We talk about the stellar performances, reflect a little bit on our thoughts about the real life case, and talk some trailers as well.
