Episode #294: We Need to Talk-isode

August 31st, 2020
  • Get Out/
  • Just Mercy/

Life threw a wrench in completing this episode, so the 3rd movie will have to wait.  Matt put off dealing with the current social conversation long enough.  2 command performances from the leads that each spark a different dialogue.  We all need to be better & do better; maybe getting a little preachy will spur a few along (us, not the movies).  There are also a multitude of places to donate your money & time to in helping out.

Here is a brief Interview with Daniel Kaluuya.  Here is another with John Boyega (yes - they both did were questioned about playing Americans).  Here is Samuel L Jackson directly questioning Kaluuya's casting, along with David Oyelowo for MLK.

Episode #293: IT (movies)

August 17th, 2020

We already covered the mini-series, so we are overdue in considering how the films rounded out.  So, uh, here we are.  BTW, the flicks are rated 73% & 65% on IMDB.  Matt says more like 83/75.

 

Links:  IT miniseries,  Stranger Things s1 (also s1 spoiler-sode) & s2, The Help, Atomic Blonde (has 2 X-men links), Adventureland.   

Episode #292: In Defense of Adam Sandler

August 3rd, 2020
  • Punch-Drunk Love
  • Spanglish
  • Uncut Gems

It isn't even easy to defend the funny Sandler movies in recent years, but he has broken that loop a few times over his career.  If you know what we've already covered, then the 3 choices are easy; if not...  I mean, listen either way!  3 times where he wowed the crowd.  Have at it.

Their IMDB scores are 73, 64, and 74.  Does that help? 

Links:  Happy Gilmore, Wedding Singer (i guess i love not saying which Sandler flix i discuss!), Reign Over Me, 50 1st Dates, Magnolia (has other Phillip Seymour Hoffman links), Equilibrium (has links for Red Dragon and Cold Souls), Traffic, Bone Collector, Mysterious Skin, Eternal Sunshine..., Lady Bird, Short Term 12, Sorry to Bother You, Selma, Straight Outta Compton
