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.

Bumper of an episode! We talk new Ben Affleck action flick 'The Accountant' and Tom Cruise vehicle 'Jack Reacher - Never Go Back'.  Anthony saw a pretty cool documentary about a Japanese heavy metal band 'We are X'  and we talk the HBO Sci-Fi series 'Westworld' and some of our favorite horror films EVER!  Plus we were both in foul moods until the show started but just doing the show made us both happy..  so yay!  P.S sorry it's late ;)

Anthony's had too much caffeine, Darren is too controlling and there's a new Godzilla film.  We talk about the Netflix documentary 'Man Vs Snake', the new Japanese pop trash 'Godzilla: Resurgence', the anime classic 'Castle in the Sky' plus lots of horror movie favorites.  It's the episode where the Wings vs Beatles vs John Lennon argument gets aired in all its filthy glory.  Who shall win this battle?  You'll just have to listen.

If you liked 'Gone Girl' you'll be interested to hear our take on the similarities and differences between it and 'The Girl On The Train' starring Emily Blunt. The film is a mystery thriller directed by Tate Taylor ('The Help') co-starring Justin Theroux, Rebecca Ferguson, Hayley Bennett Luke Evans and Alison Janney - who, let's face it,  makes any film better simply by appearing in it.  We also talk about the documentary 'Amanda Knox' - an American woman who spent almost four years in an Italian prison following her conviction of the 2007 murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher. Amanda was ultimately exonerated - but the journey between the horrible event and her eventual release is still full of controversy.  Finally we discuss the new Shia LaBeouf indie flick 'American Honey' directed by Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank).

We saw the Jarred Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) directed comedy 'Masterminds' starring Kristin Wiig, Zack Galifianakis, Jason Sedeikis, Owen Wilson and Kate Mckinnon - plus a documentary called 'Chicken People' (yes really).  Perhaps the most entertaining part of the show is when Anthony and Darren read and re-enact the text conversation they had deciding on which movie to see, and where.  It's.. dramatic.
