WE LOVE BLADE RUNNER 2049!!! And we’re going to spend 30 minutes not telling you anything about it.No spoilers. Zero. But lots of why it’s good. How it succeeds where movies like Ghost in the Shell, mother!, and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets failed. This is the best movie of the year, and we both give it a 10/10 perfect score.
This week we cover Sicario, The Walk, The Martian and begin discussing the first of our Halloween recommendations. Go vote for this week’s themes: Aliens vs. Zombies– or suggest your own. http://www.facebook.com/BoredAsHellPodcast
Quickly, Stonewall: If you’re going to call it Stonewall, actually make it about the Stonewall riots. It had as much to do with the Stonewall riots as Stonewall Jackson. But not a terrible movie. Roland Emmerich shows restraint? 5/10
Sicario: Benecio del Toro. Not too early to start talking Oscars. Incredibly tense. It’s like Apocalypse Now or Full Metal Jacket but with the drug war instead of Vietnam. Andy gives it 7.5/10, Brooks says 8 just for the performances.
The Walk: About a real-life walk between the World Trade Center towers on a tightrope. First hour is a little slow, but that last part with the actual walk between the towers is amazing. The accent. Matthew Lillard as Shaggy. Like a 6/10. Go watch Man on Wire, the documentary about the same event.
The Martian: One of the best movies of the year. Makes you feel good about things. Science! Exploration! The movie vs. the book. Ridley Scott. Everyone is at a 9 or 10.
It’s October, so we’re recommending Halloween-themed movies every week with a different theme chosen by you, the listeners. This week, it’s “Supernatural movies.” eg, demons, devils, etc.
Brooks chose The Orphanage
Andy chose Hellboy
Adam chose Evil Dead (the remake)
The podcast so you don't end up bored as hell at the movies
