"Allied," "Rules Don't Apply," "The Truman Show" and "Hancock" Grierson & Leitch

    • TV & Film

We hope you all had a grand Thanksgiving! May your harvests be bountiful! We are back looking at a rather uninspired couple of new releases. First, it's Robert Zemeckis' World War II drama "Allied," with Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. And it's old directors week here, apparently, with Warren Beatty's long-awaited, and nearly entirely ignored, "Rules Don't Apply." At least he finally got to play Howard Hughes. We have a lot more fun with our Reboot section. We tackle one of our favorite movies from the '90s, Peter Weir's visionary "The Truman Show" from 1998. And for a long time, Grierson has loved 2008's "Hancock." Does he feel the same way today? Only one way to find out. Timestamps: 5:30 "Allied" 22:55 "Rules Don't Apply" 34:20 "The Truman Show" 53:15 "Hancock" We hope you enjoy. Let us know what you think @griersonleitch on Twitter, or griersonleitch@newrepublic.com. As always, give us a review on iTunes with the name of a movie you'd like us to review, and we'll discuss it on a later podcast.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
