What a week, and a movie to go with it. Arrival is one of those movies where the less you know, the better it is, so we keep spoilers and plot to a minimum. But aliens show up, we have to communicate with them, so we get Amy Adams to do it. We both loved it, with Adam at a 10, and Andy at a 9.5.
Pan – a bad prequel that doesn’t do what a prequel is supposed to do. Pan doesn’t even get his powers until the last five minutes. Why are the pirates singing Nirvana? Why is Rooney Mara a native princess? This was five different movies cobbled together and it gives you whiplash. Andy gives it 4/10 and a more full review here.
99 Homes – Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon act the hell out of this movie, but it’s not quite Spider-Man vs General Zod. It’s better. It’s a little date, but all the performances more than make up for it. Andy gives it 6/10, Adam gives it 8/10 and you can read more here.
Recommendations: This week’s theme is Aliens!!!
Andy – Attack the Block – go watch John Boyega protect his London block from weird glowy-teethy alien monsters. Funny and scary!
Adam – They Live – Mostly we just talk about all the things that ripped off They Live for the last 30 years. Duke Nukem, Devil May Cry, South Park, Futurama . . .
Go vote for this week’s theme: Disney vs. Comedies!
