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).
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
With the rat race the 2016 Presidential Election has become, and more importantly, the increasing realization that all lives matter, this amazingly, sardonic Warren Beatty film is necessary viewing. Its over the top and laughably silly, but it comes from the right place. Hopefully this ep helps give it the attention it deserves now since it didn’t get it in 1998.
