Welcome to our first triple feature, starting with the true romcom of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon’s lives #IdBuyThatForADollar, followed by Sony’s third go at Spidey (24:23), and finally Matt Reeves’s conclusion to the Apes trilogy (48:23) #IBTFAD. Also, Steve shares thoughts on The Exception (1:20:07), Kirikou and the Sorceress (1:24:19), and a double feature of The Philadelphia Story/Palm Beach Story (1:27:06). Meanwhile, I caught This is John (1:32:04) and Videodrome in 35mm (1:36:37) – then my Goodwill Corner featuring a surprise announcement (1:41:08).
We sadly missed Chan Wook-Park’s latest offering in theaters, but thanks to the modern state of cinema, were gifted a free screening as part of our Amazon Prime memberships. There’s a lot to say about this darkly comedic, erotic thriller, especially as counter programming to our last episode, but what it comes down to is #IdBuyThatForADollar. Steve also rewatched the Disney Channel Original Movie, Phantom of the Megaplex (32:10) while I give my early impressions of Ready at Dawn’s Deformers (36:52) and Garfunkel and Oates: Trying to Be Special (43:21).
