Happy Halloween! Eat your gross, nasty vegetables with boring Inferno and then stick around for the second half of Trolls because the first half is boring. If you need a last minute suggestion of what to watch on Halloween, try Blade II or Hellboy, both of which are directed by Guillermo Del Toro and star Ron Perlman and are perfectly spooky. Also, why you should see Doctor Strange in IMAX.
We’re back with a couple of inexplicable sequels. Adam called “Ouija: Origin of Evil” the candy corn of movies. And we were both unimpressed with “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” but did like Cobie Smulders. Also, what horror movie stuck with you? The Ring and Paranormal Activity.
This week we saw Ben Affleck as The Accountant, which is kinda like Rain Man meets Jason Bourne. The Greasy Strangler also finally hit theaters, so we remember back to seeing it at Sundance and why it doesn’t deserve to be compared to John Waters movies. Also, our good friend Brooks Bird tells us about all of the releases by Arrow, who is kind of like the Criterion Collection for genre films.
Four movies this week and we talk more about our favorite Tim Burton movies– because it’s October and because we saw Miss Pergrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Also Deepwater Horizon, Masterminds, and Queen of Katwe.
