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 paid to see 'The Magnificent Seven' starring Denzel Washington, Haley Bennet, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and more! Plus Anthony went to see Garbage in San Francisco, Darren got way too invested in the first Presidential debates and wore inappropriate clothing for a grown man.  We also talk indie conspiracy theory film 'Operation Avalanche' and upcoming films we're down to see.  For an episode, it's a blast! (Well, it's perfectly ok)

Recorded at midnight - with the assistance of coffee and whiskey (not together, separately) we talk about the crazy documentary 'Author: The JT LeRoy Story' directed by Jeff Feuerzeig - the new Taran Killam comedy 'Brother Nature' and the indie weirdo flick 'White Girl' directed by Elizabeth Wood. It's a wild and varied one sponsored by exhaustion.  Enjoy!

Darren got terrible service at a fancy restaurant, Anthony does a pitch perfect imitation of Tom Petty, we review stop motion animation film 'Kubo and the Two Strings' and the Clint Eastwood directed 'Sully' starring Tom Hanks.  It's a perfectly acceptable episode.  If you're looking for the show with the least qualified and most unprofessional opinions of films, this is it!

Sep 6, 2016

We finally see the number one horror movie of the moment - 'Don't Breathe'.  Darren is the last person on earth to finally see the Coppola classic 'The Godfather' (spoiler: he liked it!) and Anthony takes himself very seriously by seeing two arty films.  A new tech documentary by Werner Herzod and a Norwegian dark revenge comedy about a  'mild-mannered snowplow driver (Stellan SkarsgĂ„rd) who seeks revenge for the murder of his son.  Plus we discuss Anthony's obsession with the 'sport' of golfing and Darren's refreshing beverage of the day.  It's - a podcast?
