Film Sack 576: True Lies

Film Sack 575: The House on Haunted Hill
An amusement park mogul offers a group of diverse people $1,000,000 to spend the night in a haunted house with a horrifying past.
Dunaway, Jordan, and Ibbott generally keep Scott honest, but the latter undeniably is the glue that holds the show together.
Dunaway consistently gets the subtlety of a lot of the films being reviewed that seems to elude his teammates. But all work very well together and regularly take turns giving me new and added insight to films that I’ve watched many times and thought I had little to learn more of.
Perhaps the highest praise I can give is that I really enjoy this show despite their assassinations (albeit good humoured) of many of my very favourite films. If like me by the end of the shows you’ll find that many of the more jarring comments are actually pretty fair and deserved.
Good work guys, and thanks for the entertainment.
Overly long and annoying clip section
Whenever I watch a film from my collection I like to listen to a companion podcast that discusses the film in question. This means that I go through an awful lot of podcasts, predominantly they’re white American dudes (nothing wrong with that) However, I listened to the ‘Hatchet’ episode of this and man, it was a real effort. The hosts weren’t particularly engaging and there was an excruciating clip section that was literally random unfunny moments from the movie collated together. Will avoid in the future…
I love this podcast…makes me laugh every time…intros are brilliant!! Intelligent and varied discussion of movies with genuine wit and humour. By the way, I had no idea your previous picture was popcorn; I thought it was rocks in a sack! Keep it up, guys; you’re saving my life right now…everything has gone wrong and you keep me going!!
