Hail, Caesar!– new Coen Brothers wacky comedy about kidnapping in the Golden Age of Hollywood. It’s a silly movie about deep issues set against the backdrop of a movie studio, and all of those great pictures of yesteryear that just aren’t made anymore. Andy has a more full review here and gives it 9.5 out of 10, Adam gives it a 9 out of 10.
Deadpool – It’s your typical romance – boy meets girl, boy get struck by terminal disease, boy gets superpowers to overcome disease, boy blows up the world– and should be everyone’s Valentine’s Day plan. Adam and Brooke want to go again. It’s everything that Deadpool should be, including not for children. Andy wanted more satire and more Colossus, gives it 7.5 out of 10. Brooke is at 9 out 10, Adam is 10 out of 10— it’s the most fun he’s had at the movies in a long time. We’ve got more review here if you want more talking about it.
And congratulations to Brooke’s Denver Broncos, whom she was preparing to root for during the podcast and obviously gave the edge to them.
Beasts of No Nation – released in theaters and on Netflix the same day, this is a story about child soldiers in Africa starring Idris Elba. Go check it out in a local cinema if you want to cry in a theater, or on Netflix if you want to cry at home. Andy gives it 6.5/10
Goosebumps – Based on the books, this is almost more fun for adults than the kids, it includes all the monsters and stories we love and remember. Jack Black is even restrained! Adam has a more full review here and gives it 8/10
Crimson Peak – Sooooooo cool to look at! Absolutely gorgeous. And then it gets Game of Thrones-y. Andy’s full review is here, he gave it a 8.5/10, and Adam gave it 9/10.
