Adam has a sad because he hasn’t seen The Magnificent Seven or Storks. Andy has a sad because he has. Nah, not really. Storks is mediocre and boring. Why would you see anything but Kubo? And Magnificent Seven seems to have nothing to say except “pew pew!”
Remember. . . The Blair Witch? ‘Member. . . Bridget Jones? ‘Member. . . Oliver Stone? Yes, this week we’ve got Bridget Jones’s Baby, Blair Witch,andSnowden.If any of those movies sound interesting to you, you are probably going to like them. If you don’t like rom-coms, horror, or paranoid real-life techno-thrillers, respectively, you probably won’t.
Bridget Jones’s Baby gives the core audience exactly what it wants, but doesn’t tread a ton of new ground. Still, very funny, and Ed Sheeran shows up. Andy give is 6/10 and has a more full review here.
Blair Witch makes Adam want to go camping even less. They’ve taken the first movie to its next level. Adam was scared and had a great time, giving it an 8/10 and a more full review here.
Snowden is complicated but ultimately boring. Amazing acting, but Stone is all over the place as director. It’s both paranoid and naive at the same time. Andy give is 6/10 and has a more full review here. Congratulations– after reading and listening to this, you’re probably on a government watchlist.
Only one movie this week– Sully by Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart. It’s one of Eastwood’s best and one of Hanks’s best too. Andy was worried it was going to be American Sniper Clint Eastwood who yells at empty chairs, but instead we got Unforgiven / Mystic River Clint Eastwood who is a great director.
