Debt to Cinema

Debt to Cinema 108: The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996)

Some films are claimed to be so bad that they are scary, so with Halloween still in the air, and Ron Perlman in the cast, we decided to see what all the fuss is about. What we got is a legendary history of a troubled production, stars impersonating each other on film, awesome makeup, and a fairly interesting tale with just a few too many issues to overlook.

Dollar Reviews 011: Hail Caesar/Chi-raq/Burnt

The episode in which Steve talks about Hail Caesar, I finally catch Spike Lee’s Chi-raq (03:57), we each saw the lackluster Burnt (16:37), plus thoughts on two forgettable/forgotten spy adaptations: The Man From U.N.C.L.E (23:24) and The Saint (27:44). I also give my thoughts on The Muppets midseason premiere (32:01), Gilmore Girls (35:11), and Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s Awakening DLC pack (41:13).
