Not much to see this week as the movie studios try to hide their films from critics. But we did see Hitman: Agent 47. And we were not impressed. So instead we talk about other good August releases to remind us the end of summer doesn’t have to be a crapfest.
Bored as Hell Podcast - This week's episode
Hitman: Agent 47 is so boring. It would’ve been better to just play the video game for 90 minutes. It’s basically Towelie from South Park. Adam gives it 3.5/10, Andy gives it 3/10. You can read Andy’s longer review here.
Why do studios send their bad movies to die in late August? Here are a few movies that broke that mold:
The Iron Giant – One of the best animated movies ever. We love Brad Bird.
Better Off Dead – (And a tribute to all the movies that came out in the Summer of 1985, especially August ’85, one of the best of which is this.) A lesser known John Cusack movie about a bad breakup. The side characters! The 80’s cliches! Happy birthday! You came out 30 years ago TODAY!
South Park makes fun of everything.
