Darren falls out of love with a hairless Whole Foods employee, Anthony walks away unsatisfied from a traffic altercation, and a dog runs loose in Peets. Plus, we review some movies! Including the comedies, 'Rough Night' (Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Zoe Kravitz), and Judd Apatow and Michael Showalter's 'The Big Sick' (Ray Romano, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter) written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. Finally, we get titillated by Sofia Coppola's American gothic, 'The Beguiled' (Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Colin Farrell).
We talk about the experience of seeing of an original 1982 print of Steven Spielberg's masterpiece, 'E.T.' on Father's Day in Hollywood. Anthony reviews the Bruce Wills, John Goodman action/comedy, 'Once Upon a Time In Venice'. We update you on the possible origins of Catholic church wine. Finally, we discuss 'Beatriz at Dinner', starring Salma Hayek, John Lithgow and Connie Britton; written by Mike White. Your emails are read and we regret talking about male celebrity anatomy.
This week's episode opens with Darren's battle with a twitter porn-bot, tales from Anthony's L.A baseball game adventure, some celebrity sightings and a heartfelt discussion of Catholicism (not really heartfelt if we're honest). Anthony stumbles through his review of the Rachel Weisz mystery 'My Cousin Rachel'. Darren gives the Tom Cruise big budget Universal Monster themed 'The Mummy' a fighting chance. We make some fairly satisfactory mummy puns before Anthony raves about the Joel Edgerton psychological thriller 'It Comes at Night'.
Darren shares his frustrating experience with a courier service. Anthony spends a week in Las Vegas. We eventually talk about the blockbusting, weekend smash 'Wonder Woman', directed by Patty Jenkins, and staring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright and David Thewlis. Plus, Anthony reviews Zoe Lister-Jones' indie comedy, 'Band Aid' (Adam Pally, Fred Armisen). It's our 52nd episode. That means we've been doing this for a year, and so have you!
