Dollar Reviews 042: The Big Sick/Spider-man: Homecoming/War for the Planet of the Apes

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).

Two Cents 083: One Brick at a Time

The week in which we only cover politics via SNL and Shia LaBoeuf, gamers face more delays as E3 goes public, Jay and Silent Bob are getting rebooted, several big directors have new projects, and Star Wars is landing in two big ways. I saw The Lego Batman Movie when I wasn’t busy becoming obsessed with collecting Lego Dimensions or playing Day of the Tentacle Remastered, while Steve caught Vertigo in 70mm and VR treasure, The Lawnmower Man. Plus, Apple, Facebook, and Viacom switch up their TV approaches, Halloween is getting another reboot (but we are excited about it), Jack Nicholson is coming out of hiding, the Terms of Endearment black remake, changes The Academy should make, Oculus is shuddering its demo stations, and the advent of underwater VR.
