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).

Dollar Reviews 039: I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore

Despite its top billing, Macon Blair’s Melanie Lynskey/Elijah Wood staring Netflix exclusive isn’t the big review this episode, that honor is split between my solo outings with Playstation VR’s Farpoint + Aim Controller (14:57) and Master of None season two (24:15). Meanwhile, Steve missed another chance at catching GotG Vol. 2 in 3D and settled on anime darling, Your Name (31:43) and I close with praise for film podcast 80s All Over (38:27).

Debt to Cinema 040: The Thin Man

Just a year after Prohibition was repealed, Nick and Norah Charles reminded America why they missed alcohol so badly. Between their comedic timing, romance, and scene stealing dog, join us as we decide if this whodunit romcom has enough going for it to make up for the subpar mystery.

Debt to Cinema 022: You’ve Got Mail

This might be our list of shame show, but I have no shame in placing this on my list of favorites. This may not be an amazing film, but there’s something perfect about. Maybe its just them – the quintessential romcom couple of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan; or Nora Ephron perfecting her style. Either way, this product placement infused, remake is necessary watching and I finally made Steve see it.
