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.

This week, we talk excess in the age of the Internet, add a little something special to a Lady Gaga classic, and graduate to becoming full fledged hypocrites. Like us please! We review the art comedies Ingrid Goes West (Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, Wyatt Russell), and Dave Made a Maze (Nick Thune, Meera Rohit Kumbhani, Adam Busch). SPOILER ALERT! We delve into the most recent Twin Peaks episode, and share our thoughts on the series as it starts to wrap up. Taylor Swift and Katy Perry's most recent music videos can get the heck out of here. Plus there's some Groundhog Day remembrance and Rick and Morty gushing.

Darren dishes on his problematic Palm Springs getaway. Anthony gets mistaken for Jon Snow more than once, and we scat about scat. We review Steven Soderbergh's return to the big screen, 'Logan Lucky' (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Daniel Craig), and the newest installment of 'The Conjuring' franchise, 'Annabelle: Creation' (Anthony LapPaglia, Miranda Otto, Talitha Eliana Bateman). We crush on Jack Antonoff, meet the best bartender in the Bay Area, and an old ghostly favorite briefly graces us with his presence. As Donald Trump continues to stare into the sun, we talk about bad purchases. Do you know who Rebecca Blunt is? We sure don't. Someone please tell us!

This week, our plans for a shortened show go haywire. We review the new Taylor Sheriden film, 'Wind River' (Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Jon Bernthal, Gil Birmingham), and Al Gore's important, yet inconveniently titled documentary, 'An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power'. Darren prepares for his Palm Springs work-cation, Anthony has car trouble, and Katy Perry does how we do. We give you a peek behind the 'We Paid to See This' curtain, and describe the Lady Gaga show we haven't seen yet.

Trump's on Twitter, the world is ending, and we review the Stephen King adaption, 'The Dark Tower' (Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Jackie Earle Haley), plus the indie comedy, 'Landline' (Jenny Slate, Jay Duplass, Edie Falco, John Turturro). 'Twin Peaks', and 'Rick and Morty' are also discussed. Anthony has a urinary crisis. Darren turns the corner on Idris Elba. We call for the end of Twitter, unless you're tweeting us.

Anthony's flight gets delayed, Darren gets vaped on at the movies, and we give some of our crankiest reviews of all time; including, 'Atomic Blonde' (Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman), and 'Brigsby Bear' (Kyle Mooney, Mark Hamill, Claire Danes). Kathryn Bigelow's 'Detroit' (John Boyega, John Krasinski, Anthony Mackie, Algee Smith) is also discussed. Darren also doles out some love to HBO's 'The Defiant Ones' and we cut all our hair off, live in the studio. Just kidding. I just wrote that to see if anyone reads episode descriptions.
