We Paid To See This

A light-hearted comedic movie podcast focusing on the week's new cinema releases. Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano spend their hard earned (or borrowed) cash to see the latest film releases and tell you what they thought. Because they don't get in for free, their opinions are honest. Honestly! May contain funny bits (they're both Groundlings trained improvisers) and strange non sequiturs (Anthony has a degree in film and Darren has an Olympic medal in rambling). Maybe some naughty words too.

We woke up to the sad news of the passing of comedy legend Gene Wilder so we speak in depth about his impact on cinema and us.  Anthony saw the Chris Pine / Jeff Bridges modern western 'Hell Or High Water', we both saw an outdoor screening of 'The Princess Bride' and we discuss the indie film 'Mia Madre' starring John Turtorro (who Darren knew nothing about until he wrote this update! Now he gets it!).  We also discuss Britney at the VMAs, ancient reality show 'Shear Genius' and DNA testing.  We know, it's obscure. That's why you love us.

We talk about the Todd Phillips comedic tinged gun running biopic 'War Dogs' starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller - and the R rated animation flick 'Sausage Party' starring Seth Rogan and a host more.  Plus - we visited the Guillermo del Toro exhibition at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (oooh fancy!)

We saw a LOT of movies! Suicide Squad, Jason Bourne, Cafe Society, Florence Foster Jenkins & the horror movie, Darling.  We say we saw a lot of films - but we did it separately!  Anthony was away at the Outside Lands music festival and Darren was losing his Tom Ford glasses in theaters and in this episode they reunite to discuss the films they saw.
