Gods of Egypt is horrible and worthy of all the scorn heaped on it. Racist, sexist, incomprehensible, and boring. No. Just no. Andy gives it 1/10 and Brooks is afraid of what movie is worse than this: 0/10.

Eddie the Eagle is just fun. Jackman and Edgerton are just fun to watch. Somewhat predictable sports hero story, (and so 80’s!) but they sell it so well. Andy gives it 7.5, Adam and Brooks are both at 8/10.

Triple 9 is a little confusing plotwise, but so intense it’s worth it. Great acting, especially by Anthony Mackie and Casey Affleck. Andy and Brooks both give it 8.5/10

19 – I got 99 Homes but a Pan ain’t one

We review the foreclosure Faustian drama “99 Homes” and the Peter Pan Prequel “Pan” along with our recommendation for best alien-themed Halloween movies.

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!
