We fight about Patriot’s Day and whether it’s manipulative mediocrity bordering on propaganda or a gripping drama told too soon. Also, Ben Affleck gets no respect as writer, director and star of Live By Night and Martin Scorsese rips apart faith in Silence.
We review A Monster Calls and run down the worst movies of 2016. A Monster Calls is amazing, heartfelt, and beautiful. . . and horribly marketed and rolled out to critics and audiences. Everyone loves it, but it’s buried in January and most critics didn’t get to see it until awards ballots were already sent out. What a shame, because it’s amazing. 9/10 from both of us.
A special dishonorable mention from Andy: the worst thing he saw in a theater was Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party but that is not a movie in the same way Breitbart is not news.
