We review Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Black Mass, and Everest. Also, we apologize in advance we will skip next week because of Salt Lake Comic Con and lack of new releases being screened. We’ll be back Monday, October 5 to start a month of Halloween-themed episodes!
Bored as Hell Podcast - This week's episode
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials picks up where the last one abruptly ends. Tried so hard to be the epic, dark, character-driven second episode in the trilogy but fails. It’s overstuffed. But at least it’s a vast improvement on the first movie. Andy gave it 3.5/10.
Black Mass tells the story of Whitey Bolger’s rise as the biggest crimelord in America. This is Johnny Depp’s movie. Amazing performances, but maybe tries to humanize him too much. This could’ve lost 20 minutes and been great. 8/10
Everest – the Utah pronunciation of the word “mountain.” It’s a disaster/survival movie, except real. Amazing cast. Kiwi accents. Andy wishes it was more like Jon Krakauer’s book, gave it 5/10. Adam loved it, despite a first half that needed to pick up the pace, gave it 7/10.
