This week it was all about comedies and defying expectations, as we got a sneak peek at the wonderful coming of age, women positive, high school film Booksmart. Afterwards we are impressed by the chemistry between Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron in the absurd, but fun, political laugh-fest Long Shot.
SPOILERS, I REPEAT, SPOILERS. We saw Avengers: Endgame on opening night and we have lots to talk about including: What actually happened, who died, what arcs we loved / hated, and what the ending means for the next phase of the MCU. If you haven’t seen Endgame yet, wait to listen to this episode!
We are big fans of a tiny penguin named Steve in Disney Nature’s Penguins, and we love the bonkers mystery present in Under the Silver Lake. Afterwards we talk about some Non-MCU Superhero movies that we like, and hate, as we gear up for Avengers: Endgame.
Lots of mediocre movies this week, and we’re here to give you the scoop! We talk really slow about the old man police story of The Highwaymen, lament Pet Sematary not spending enough time on their characters, respect the intent of The Public but wish for better execution. As for Hellboy … the less spoken about it, the better.
We somehow survived the Avengers Endgame ticket sale, and we’re here to report back on how it all went down. Afterwards we talk about the movies that we just had to see opening day, and if Endgame has what it takes to dethrone Avatar and Titanic. Movie-wise this week we talk about the very odd and divisive Beach Bum and the wonderfully fun Shazam!
