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.

Anthony reviews Luc Besson's ambitious epic, 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' (Cara Delevingne, Dane DeHaan, Clive Owen, Rihanna), Darren falls in love during 'Lady Macbeth' (Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis), and we rave about Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' (Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Harry Styles). Both of us are in ongoing battles with our neighbors, and one of us might possibly be paranoid. Oh and by the way we're totally wrong about Luc Besson directing an Alien film.  Whoops. Netflix’s ‘To The Bone’ (Lily Collins, Keanu Reeves) is also discussed.

This week, we've got it all. We talk 'Twin Peaks', global warming, the state of politics, Ed Sheeran and the season 7 premiere of 'Game of Thrones', more thoughts on 'Baby Driver', horrifyingly gruesome facts about the praying mantis, and of course, Netflix's GLOW. We review Matthew Heinemann's Syrian journalist documentary, 'City of Ghosts', and Matt Reeves' 'War For the Planet of Apes' (Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Toby Kebbell, and Judy Greer).

This week, we review David Lowery's latest film, 'A Ghost Story' (Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck), and reclaimed, Marvel juggernaut, 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' (Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., and Marisa Tomei). Anthony survives a blackout, Darren tries to sell the show to the folks at the local coffee shop, and we slowly poison ourselves with microwaved wax. We also dish briefly about the documentary, 'GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling', which you can watch now on Netflix.

Darren drives and Anthony comes in shell-shocked from the road. Edgar Wright's 'Baby Driver' (Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx) promises a damn good time, and gives Anthony a hint of anxiety. Darren champions 'The House' (Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Jason Mantzoukas). Netflix's Okja (Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal) directed by Bong Joon-ho, and repressed nun comedy, 'The Little Hours' (Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci, Dave Franco) are also reviewed. One of us can never go back to Barnes & Noble.
