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.

As darkness falls across the land on this fair All Hallows' Eve, we fall directly into your ear pits. Reviews include the #1 movie in the country, the newest 'Saw' installment, 'Jigsaw' (Tobin Bell, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson), and George Clooney's latest directorial effort, 'Suburbicon' (Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac). We scare you with our horrifying tales of blood pudding, and water bottles. Darren whoops it up at a Halloween party at the Jackson's house on the weekend, and Anthony really doesn't ruin 'Stranger Things', probably. We also chat about the new re-release of 'Little Shop of Horrors', and Vince Vaughn's new film, "Brawl in Cell Block 99". How do you achieve the desired consistency of your bowel movements?

It's a one movie kind of week! And that movie is Yorgos Lanthimos' follow up to 'The Lobster', 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' (Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan). We rave about Alicia Silverstone's performance, add a new entry to the list of Cinema's Most Uncomfortable Handjobs, and one of us reveals a never before heard secret. Darren pitches his idea for Hollywood's newest celebrity installation, and Anthony talks to his log at the new Double R Diner in Los Angeles. Finally, we give some love to Netflix's new comedy special, 'Patton Oswalt: Annihilation'.

Amidst a sea of emotion, we bring you the reviews of three movies: Noah Baumbach's frustratingly titled film, 'The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)' starring Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler and Dustin Hoffman, HBO's aptly titled Steven Spielberg documentary, 'Spielberg' (Brian De Palma, Kathleen Kennedy, George Lucas), and the just...simply titled horror/comedy, 'Happy Death Day' (Jessica Rothe, Ruby Modine, Israel Broussard). Baseball heartbreak, dolphin drama, and the world's longest pee take center stage.

We speak to you amidst the dropping of the 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' trailer, and its subsequent ticket sale frenzy. Still, we review two films, 'The Florida Project' (Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince, Bria Vinaite), and Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi epic, 'Blade Runner 2049' (Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Jared Leto). After a week of reflection, we talk about the passing of Tom Petty, and recommend Peter Bogdanavich's biopic, 'Running Down a Dream'; which can be found on Netflix. Anthony wants to be where the prostitutes and cops are, and Darren continues to fight disease.

One of us is sick, and the other one is working on it. Heal us with your ears! We review Harry Dean Stanton's posthumous film, 'Lucky' (David Lynch, Ron Livingston, John Carroll Lynch), Stephen Frears' Queen Victoria biopic, 'Victoria and Abdul' (Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Eddie Izzard), and Doug Liman's 'American Made' (Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright). Anthony escapes a mechanical arm, Darren won't rehearse just anywhere, and we talk Tom Petty.
