We’re good, we’re calm, we deal with people on the road in a civilized manner. Reviews this week include ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ (Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, Jeff Goldblum), the heart wrenching documentary ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor’ (Fred Rogers, Yo-Yo Ma) and indie comedy ‘Izzy Gets the F*** Across Town’ (Mackenzie Davis, Haley Joel Osment, Laakeith Stanfield, Carrie Coon). We meet a Whitesnake fanatic, get hit on by inappropriate people, and lament a world so far removed from Mr. Rogers’. And if you don’t stay for any of that, at least stay for the old rumpy pumpy.
We come at you on Father’s Day in the United States with a trifecta of fun-type movies. Reviews this week include the long awaited Pixar sequel, ‘Incredibles 2’ (Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Catherine Keener, Bob Odenkirk), heist spinoff, ‘Oceans 8’ ( Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna), and the feel good flick, ‘Hearts Beat Loud’ (Nick Offerman, Kiersey Clemons, Ted Danson, Toni Collette). Cameos happen, we fall in love with an owl man, and get distracted by the pretty records in the wall. Apologies to Natalie Wood and Sharon Tate.
Darren’s back from New York, and Anthony is ill; neither event is related. We review Leigh Whannell’s gruesome action flick, ‘Upgrade’ (Logan Marshall-Green, Betty Gabriel, Harrison Gilbertson), Ari Aster’s directorial debut ‘Hereditary’ (Toni Collette, Milly Shapiro, Alex Wolff, Gabriel Byrne) and Bart Layton’s ‘American Animals’ (Evan Peters, Blake Jenner, Barry Keoghan). But we don’t stop there, so get comfortable! Darren speaks on the Andre Leon Talley documentary ‘The Gospel According to Andre’, Anthony gives a very timely rundown of James Cameron’s least successful record breaking film, ‘Titanic’, and Ann Dowd is in everything. A ghoulish friend makes his return.
Darren’s living it up in the Big Apple, but we still give you the goods. We review Paul Schrader’s latest film ‘First Reformed’ (Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric the Entertainer), rant about young Leonardo DiCaprio, and complain about another theater experience. We challenge each other to review some classic films that we’ve missed (or avoided). We’re back at you fresh, next week!
