107 – Transformers: The Last War for the Planet of the Apes

A great movie and a horrible movie with special guest Rich Bonaduce! as we review Transformers: The Last Knight and War for the Planet of the Apes. An inexplicable plot. Stupid action. All characters are stupid. British Megan Fox has a PhD and will remind you about it, but she just needs a man. Mark Wahlberg just needs a woman. Convenient. It’s all so terrible, and so boring. But War for the Planet of the Apes is the anti-Transformers: smart, fun, and has something to say. Great blend of summer action and thoughtful message. We need a palate cleanser– too bad everyone else has to wait until July 14 to see it.

106 – 47 Meters Rough Cars 3

Weird mediocre week with shark movie 47 Meters Down, raunch-com Rough Night, and Cars 3. Drink every time someone mentions The Bends and you will die. Not enough sharks (or scares) in this shark movie. Stupid ending. Rough Night is about women, but in the end the insecure fiance is the hero? Should’ve been more funny given how great the cast is. Cars 3 is terrible for the first hour, then gets kinda good. We spoil the hell out of it, so beware. You can read the written form of Andy’s comments here.  The short Lou  before the movie is the best part. That we don’t spoil because it’s beautiful.

105 – The Mummy Comes At Night

The Dark Universe has an inauspicious beginning in The Mummy.  The first act is good, and as long as it stays about the mummy, it’s good. The shared universe stuff is terrible. Andy and Adam disagree about the ending, but no spoilers. It Comes At Night is suspenseful, not scary. It’s apocalyptic, but there’s no monster.

104 – Wonder Woman Captain Underpants

Joined by Kaitlyn Booth again to school Andy and Adam about Wonder Woman, but first we (briefly) talk Captain Underpants.  The first great movie of the DCEU. Why the ‘No Man’s Land’ scene resonates. War! World War I vs II. Born Sexy Yesterday? Now just stick the landing, DC.

103 – Pirates of the Baywatch – WOMEN ONLY screening

Studios try to revitalize once-beloved franchises with Baywatch and Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Then we take a swear-filled rant about the “controversy” over the women-only screenings for Wonder Woman at the Alamo Drafthouse. And next week a (returning) special guest will join us to talk Wonder Woman! Stay awhile and listen!

102 – Diary of a Wimpy Alien Covenant

Alien: Covenant for the adults and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul for the kids. Well, certain kids, because there are lots of bodily function jokes in this movie. Kiddie version of The Griswolds. Alien: Covenant is more of a Prometheus sequel than an Alien prequel, but it tries to split the difference with your classic facehuggers and chestbursters, etc. Split. Logan: Noir. Get Out.

101 – Snatched King Arthur

We have Snatched and King Arthur this week, and also a look back on Prometheus and how it ties in to Alien: Covenant. We could seriously discuss it for hours, but we’ll just over you the basics– including spoilers for a 5-year old movie, for which we don’t apologize.

99 – The Promise Free Fire Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Soundtrack

We spend most of the episode talking about the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tracklist released this week.

98 – Their Finest Fate of the Gifted

The big giant crazy movie of the week is The Fate of the Furious, but you should really consider checking out Gifted, and maybe even Their Finest. Gifted is one of Adam’s favorite movies of the year so far. Andy mentions his mom twice on the podcast, once because she might like the BBC costume drama of Their Finest. How Fate of the Furious might have finally fixed Andy.
