We’ve been nice overall when it comes to sharing our opinions of Adam Sandler’s recent offerings, not seeing the point in beating a dying horse, but after two hiccups on Netflix, Happy Madison has finally delivered something totally likeable. When that conversation trails off we split hairs over the Thor Ragnarok trailer (27:16) before doing a live reaction to the Star Wars Battlefront 2 reveal (33:51), followed by my showstopping Goodwill movie haul (37:46) and impressions of Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN (44:17). Finally Steve caught Poltergeist in 70mm (48:58) and Gods of Egypt (51:24), while I saw The Accountant (55:29) and a double bill of We Are the Best and Los Punks (59:23).
Netflix releases are hit or miss with people, and that is exactly what Charlie McDowell’s The Discovery is for us, undoubtedly culminating in one of our most heated clashes – which is fitting for a film regarding explorations of the afterlife (check the AFDM for uncensored dialogue). Steve also caught Malick’s Song to Song (27:50) and Gremlins 2 (36:00), while I experienced Ubisoft’s social VR game Werewolves Within (43:20), Sly Cooper 2: Band of Thieves (52:08), and binged on Kendrick Lamar, while sharing my latest Goodwill and LEGO hauls.
