We’re short, we’re sweet, we’re taking a week, but that doesn’t mean we’re leaving you completely review-less. We chat about the latest Lizzie Borden film, ‘Lizzie’ (Kristen Stewart, Chloe Sevigny, Fiona Shaw), get our hacking rhymes straight, and never fail to mention the old True Blood. Plus we got offered a pretty bad deal after bars closed the other night, involving an exchange of stolen pizza knots for illicit things. Tune in to find out what, who and wheyey!
Traffic transgressions, driveway tantrums, and a potential first class ticket to internet infamy. We review two films, the socialite documentary ‘Susanne Bartsch: On Top’, and Paul Feig’s comedic thriller, ‘A Simple Favor’ (Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding). We croon that sweet, sweet Gin Blossom-y sound, drown our sorrows in tequila, and keep the vibe generally loopy. Don't get emotional, baby.
Our review of ‘The Nun’ is probbably scarier than the actual movie, but still, we saw it so you don’t have to. Corin Hardy directed this next installment of ‘The Conjuring’ franchise - starring Demián Bichir, Taissa Farmiga, Jonas Bloquet, Sandra Teles, Charolotte Hope and way too many nuns. We also caught the biopic based on the catpure and trial of ‘Adolp Eichman’, the monster referred to as the architect of the holocaust. Directed by Chris Weitz and starring Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Mélanie Laurent, Lior Raz, Nick Kroll and Haley Lu Richardson, ‘Operation Finale’ takes on an incredibly imporatant moment in history. Plus we’re visited by our old friend Bill Wilkins and we make everything about Madonna. Anthony also saw another thing but honestly I’ve given up trying to remember what it was.
This week, we travel down an absurd vortex of lethargy while we review two new thrillers, the Lenny Abrahamson film, ‘The Little Stranger’ (Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling) and the laptop-centric ‘Searching’ (John Cho, Debra Messing, Michelle La). We pit Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson against each other in a match of beauty, refuse to fall in love, and frequent a seedy theater. We give a bonus review of the body-switching 2016 anime, ‘Your Name’. Hey. Who loves ya? We do.
