Plus, the continued boycott of Netflix in theaters, more Dark Universe monsters, Sony making family friendly streaming edits, selling a Plame d’Or to finance a movie, and Amazon/Oculus becoming available to all.

Dollar Reviews 039: I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore

Despite its top billing, Macon Blair’s Melanie Lynskey/Elijah Wood staring Netflix exclusive isn’t the big review this episode, that honor is split between my solo outings with Playstation VR’s Farpoint + Aim Controller (14:57) and Master of None season two (24:15). Meanwhile, Steve missed another chance at catching GotG Vol. 2 in 3D and settled on anime darling, Your Name (31:43) and I close with praise for film podcast 80s All Over (38:27).

Debt to Cinema 070: Samurai Cop

After the Star Wars Holiday Special, Robocop 3, Freddy Got Fingered, and Yoga Hosers, we’ve built up a good amount of reviews for bad movies. Usually its because one of us is sadistic and feels like making the other endure the pain of an awful film, but every once in a while the internet is wrong and we find a new favorite (here’s looking at you, Catwoman). Join us to find which side of the bad quality coin this falls on: guilty pleasure or guilty of viewing.

Plus, we dedicate a section just to superhero news (#Batfleck), speculate about Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs, Sony’s Emoji movie doesn’t sound horrible, Star Trek Beyond in Barco Escape, another Fahrenheit 451 adaptation, and the return of Warren Beatty.
