49 – Money Monster Apocalypse

This week we review X-Men: Apocalypse, Money Monster, and talk a lot about boob windows and if they’re sexist or not. #FassbenderPeenWindow

Bored as Hell Podcast - This week's episode

Money Monster should have been more exciting. Script is kind of boring and never delves into why we should care. Unlike The Big Short, which had Margot Robbie in a bubble bath to help explain boring finance and economics. Andy doesn’t remember Selena Gomez’s name.  Adam gives it a forgettable 5/10. Go watch The Big Short and Hail, Caesar! instead.

X-Men: Apocalypse is the third movie in the rebooted X-Men universe. Plays out a little like a Greatest Hits but is still incredibly fun. That Quicksilver scene, though. Apocalypse is a boring villain who’d rather fuss over costumes Tim Gunn style than actually be menacing. Wasted opportunities with great characters and great actors.

The Great Boob Window Debate of 2016.

You can read a roundtable review Adam and Andy participated in here, but [spoiler alert] Adam gives it 8/10 and Andy 7/10.
