"Moonlight," "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back," "American Pastoral" and "Weekend at Bernie's" Grierson & Leitch

    • TV & Film

Barry Jenkins' "Moonlight" is one of the best movies of the year, and we have a fantastic time discussing it this week. We also try to figure out what Tom Cruise is trying to do with his "Jack Reacher" franchise and break down the sisyphean task Ewan McGregor gave himself by trying to adapt a Philip Roth novel. But mostly we talk about "Moonlight." Then, in our reboot section, we discuss a movie that might be the polar opposite of "Moonlight:" It's 1989's "Weekend at Bernie's." He's dead ... but nobody seems to know it! Also, Leitch makes Grierson guess what the plot of the sequel is. Timestamps: 4:00 "Moonlight" 24:15 "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" 38:05 "American Pastoral" 47:50 "Weekend at Bernie's" 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 is dressing up as Bernie for Halloween this year.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
