This week we take on Blake Lively’s shark attack movie The Shallows, Matthew McConaughey fights for good ol’ boy southern freedom and equality for people of all races in the Civil War drama Free State of Jones, and we bitch about how awful Independence Day: Resurgence is. Warning: spoilers. Luckily, this movie is spoiler-proof, as it comes pre-spoiled for your convenience.
The big movie of the week is Finding Dory, and stick around to the end for our late-breaking In Memoriam to Anton Yelchin. Random topics in this episode: better than popcorn but not as good as caramel apple sucker, Octodad. Pixar sequels and best Pixar movies, judging on the Spider-Man scale, seeing The Shallows and Jaws on the water, and buy your tickets for The Killing Joke for July 25th.
It’s Warcraft, The Conjuring 2, and Now You See Me 2. We also get sidetracked talking about Patrick Wilson for a few minutes and see our list of 13 original movies that came out this year in case you’re tired of sequels, reboots and adaptations.
It’s our birthday episode! Also we review Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. We also celebrate our birthday and reminisce about the last year, how we got into reviewing movies, etc.
