When going through a tough spot in life, movies that make you feel something are the best medicine. I knew I’d probably like this Best Picture winner, but I didn’t think I would be so enamored. There is so much here, its so lifelike, and seeing Nicholson and McClaine’s affair develop is pure bliss. I loved their characters so much I jokingly asked for a sequel during the episode, turns out they made one. Not sure that flick’s worth the time but this one is #IdBuyThatForADollar
I’ve been telling people recently how strange it is that I don’t care about sports anymore. Football, baseball, and basketball were all such big parts of my identity at different points of my life, and yet I have moved on. I can point at this podcast as a more worthy time suck, but chances are the only game I pursue now is love. This magically, emotional film, despite its title, aligns with my heart, leaning one way more than the other despite its makeup #IdBuyThatForADollar
Sometimes when you don’t know anything going into a film, this magical moment happens where you’re so stunned by its brilliance you feel almost stupid for never knowing about it. This week’s selection is that feeling two fold as Steve and I praise this masterful “horror” mystery which is better than the sum of its parts. #IdBuyThatForADollar is quite the understatement this time around, but if the shoe fits..
As someone who loves comedic gore, especially Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson’s offerings, all I needed was a gentle reminder from Edgar Wright on Twitter to finally scratch this Hong Kong classic off my list. Its everything you want and then tons more than you’d ever expect. If you’ve ever laughed out loud at the sight of blood I’m sure you’ll love this manga adaptation just like me #IdBuyThatForADollar
Steve was so adamant about having this as a selection on the show that he called it over a month before recording. After seeing it for myself, I understand why #IdBuyThatForADollar
With the critical world proclaiming DC’s Suicide Squad to be one of the worst comic book movies of all time, I thought we should give the prior titleholder a view. Get ready for Oscar winning actress Halle Berry giving her metahuman all, and more importantly, us praising how much fun this is.
Because Steve’s a dick, here’s my second review of The Wachowskis debut film within a six month span. Its criminally underseen, but hopefully their transitions will spark interest in this queer noir if only for its two gorgeous, leading ladies. Listen through the outro for my first impression (Warning: I say definitely a lot).
Come for the “this movie saved my life” story teased in the intro, stay for the kickass, survival story featuring LIAM NEESON PUNCHING WOLVES – oh, and its actually really good too #IdBuyThatForADollar
