We’ve started the year off with a fascinating thriller which a spoiler-free review sadly doesn’t do justice for, but as luck would have it, we have a separate show (this one) made for situations such as these. There’s a lot to ponder in this mind fuck of a rape flick; join us as we try to make sense of it all while praising its enigma.
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
This week’s selection was originally Billy Madison to coincide with the beginning of the school year, but I vetoed that pick and offered Rodney Dangerfield’s Back to School instead. Steve decided a fourth option was best and opted for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 kiddie classic for reasons explained in the episode. Its equal parts heart warming and WTF, but mostly a fun, wild ride of genre blending, nostalgic importance.
