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).
After hearing me mention it so many times in passing, Steve finally got around to catching one of my favorite non-romcoms, which just so happens to be one of the best remakes ever made. Many chalk it up as Cronenberg body horror, or a sci-fi creature feature, but come hear me tell how its truly a flawless tragic romance in disguise #IdBuyThatForADollar
