Puppet sex, mood lighting, and one of us might be held hostage. Currently. Please send help. This week, we review three fa-hilms! Including the raunchy puppet noir ‘The Happytime Murders’ (Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale), Bjorn Runge’s, ‘The Wife’ (Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Slater) and Jon M. Chu’s ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ (Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong). We talk two recently classic hunk filled dance scenes, debate water, and deliver the ASMR tingles that no one asked for.
We go long and strong this week, with a show filled with tangents, manifestation, and a whole lot of Pepsi-takin’. Movie reviews include Spike Lee’s ‘BlacKkKlansman’ (John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier, Topher Grace), and the latest Nick Hornby adaptation, ‘Juliet, Naked’ (Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd, Ethan Hawke). We pitch a new subscription based, virtual experience, enlist Carly Rae Jepsen’s help in saving the world, and read some of your lovely emails. Gattaca! Gattaca! Gattaca!
We take a little brain break this week, and give you a little mini-sode. Fret not! We still bringeth thine movie reviews with HBO’s heartbreakingly masterful ‘The Tale’ (Laura Dern, Jason Ritter, Ellen Burstyn, Elizabeth Debicki). We chat a bit about the late, great John Heard, and speak of a future involving the return of Ms. Jackson, if you’re so inclined to be nasty. Trigger Warning: this episode focuses on a movie that deals with the topic of sexual abuse.
Almost a half hour goes by before we get to the movies, but we fill the space with some much needed TV talk, including USA’s ‘The Sinner’, Patrick Stewart returning to ‘Star Trek’, and Hulu’s Stephen King series, Castle Rock’. Movies reviewed include ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me’ (Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Theroux), and 1980s tennis biopic, ‘Borg vs McEnroe’ (Sverrir Gudnason, Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgard). We belt out Mandy Moore, delve to the depths of our hot genitals to croon some Crash Test Dummies, and get analyzed by John Waters.
