"Inferno," "Jackie Brown" and "Bottle Rocket" Grierson & Leitch

    • TV & Film

There's only one major release this week, and frankly, that's being kind: Ron Howard's and Tom Hanks' "Inferno" is dumb, even aggressively so. It's kind of amazing that Tyler Perry's new movie has outgrossed Tom Cruise's and Tom Hanks' new movies in consecutive weeks. Anyway, we spend more time thinking about "Inferno" than we suspect anyone involved with working on it did. Then, in our Reboot section, we head to the '90s with two major releases from major American filmmakers. First, we look at Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown," and how it's a pivotal movie in his career (and maybe his best). Then we dig into Wes Anderson's debut feature "Bottle Rocket." It's very different from what you think of when you think of Wes Anderson now. Timestamps: 5:05 "Inferno" 20:05 "Jackie Brown" 47:06 "Bottle Rocket" 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. Also, Grierson has always wanted to shave his eyebrows but just can't work up the gumption.
