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 saw 4 films and one of them was dreadful.  Can you guess which one it might be?  We saw the Charlie Day / Ice Cube comedy 'Fist Fight' with hilarious Jillian Bell and Christina Hendricks.  Anthony saw the South Korean period thriller 'The Handmaiden'.  Darren stumbled upon a 2015 British horror film 'Howl' and we saw the anthology horror film, directed by all women, called 'XX'.  Plus we talk Star Wars The Last Jedi and we rip on some pop music we loathe.  Yay!

We saw the two biggest films at the US box office this week and we tear 'em apart like chicken wings.  DELICIOUS CHICKEN WINGS THAT IS!  Hear our thoughts and possibly some rants about The Grammy Awards and some terrible jokes!

We tortured ourselves to see the 'sequel' (re-boot) of the horror franchise 'The Ring' titled, imaginatively, 'Rings'.  We surprisingly enjoyed Ben Affleck's new Boston prohibition era gangster film 'Live by Night' and we finally talk the last best picture nomination, the Mel Gibson war epic 'Hacksaw Ridge'.  Plus there's talk of doodles, how to remember to spell your name and the Lady Ga Ga performance at the Super Bowl!

We talk M Night Shyamalan's latest thriller 'Split' starring James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy and Haley Lu Richardson, the Studio Ghibli produced animated film 'The Red Turtle' and the Michael Keaton film 'Founder' about the struggle over the ownership of America's favorite fast food chain.  We might also have talked about how to handle long road trips with no toilets to be found, but you'll have to listen to find out!
