Nope, The Gray Man & My Old School Reviews
Nope and The Gray Man are battling for the king of cultural awareness this week, and with Nope having a decent run at the box office while The Gray Man keeps people at home, it's a wild week to be sure.
We'll let you know if you need to catch these, and we're also taking a look at a fascinating documentary, My Old School.
Give us a listen and hit us up at the website with questions for future episodes.
Thor Love & Thunder Review
It's Thor week as theaters prepare for a slow August and September and we'll let you know if this one merits breaking away from your favorite streamers. Is it goofy fun, or just goofy?
We're also taking you through upcoming releases and hoping to spotlight a few gems headed your way while giant, blockbuster releases take a bit of a break.
The Black Phone Review
As we get ready for Thor, we're looking at The Black Phone, based on the work of Joe Hill. The unfortunately overlooked film starring Ethan Hawke would have perhaps been better served with an October release, but it's an interesting effort even if we aren't quite in a theatrical market that can deliver for smaller features.
We'll let you know if you need to catch this in theaters, and we'll again give you a rundown of some streaming options.
Pixar lands in theaters again with a curious spin on the idea of a sequel. According to the film's intro, the film that Andy saw which inspired the toy he then got for his birthday is the film you're about to watch.
Thus, this animated sci-fi romp on an alien world has no real connection to the Toy Story films, leaving Pixar free to take off wherever it wants.
It's a strange trip, and focuses on time travel, and we'll let you know if it holds its own among Pixar's efforts.
Jurassic World Dominion Review
It's dino week and we're looking at Jurassic World Dominion this week, plus a few other bonuses and we'll let you know about some streaming options.
How does that coming of dinosaurs into the rest of the world play out, and is it, like other films in the franchise, worth seeing on the big screen no matter how good it is?
Top Gun Maverick Review
This week is obviously all about Top Gun Maverick and one verdict that's already in is whether you think it's going to be good or not, you've got to see it on the biggest screen you can.
But, how does it really hold up, and is it something worthwhile only if you can let yourself go to popcorn thrillrides, or is it worth anything more?
As usual, we'll also let you in on some other gems available to stream.
Like these guys a lot. Despite the other review, I actually think it has a down-home feel, not a pretentious one. Just two well-informed friends talking about movies, with a dog often jangling its collar or making other such noise in the background (but not enough to be annoying, just endearing). Their opinions often differ but they make their arguments without descending into a shout fest. To the other reviewer - that last sentence is a doozy.
If you guys want to know anything about movies, these guys will give you every single details. I love these guys for movies reviews. Definite recommend.
Just pass it.
I find it hilarous that they think certain films are pretentious have they ever listened to themselves ? Good movie reviews should always have a differing opinion to make things more interesting. If you want to hear two guys who laugh at the expense of the films and it's makers then waste your time.
