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, 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.
