This week I decided to be a cheap jerk and make Steve catch Adam Sandler’s second Netflix exclusive, The Do-Over, as well as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher pilot (22:15). Steve caught the natural header, X-Men: Apocalypse in 3D (32:45) and last year’s Cannes standout, The Lobster (42:12). Finally, I saw another comicbook pilot in Cinemax’s Outcast (54:49) and give my impressions of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (58:49).
This week Steve finally got me to watch Mark Steven Johnson’s cut of that other Ben Affleck superhero movie everyone always shits on. As a fan of the theatrical cut, I was satisfied with the version I grew up with, but agreed the timing with this month’s related releases was too perfect to pass on.
