Two bad movies and then a rundown of all the great things at Sundance. Andy REALLY hates Split, and tells you why he gave it 0/10. xXx – Return of Xander Cage isn’t as terrible, but it’s laughably awful: 3/10. And Adam talks about Sundance movies Colossal, Chasing Coral and The Big Sick. Warning: Andy breaks out the soapbox to talk about climate change.
We review M. Night Shayamalan’s The Visit and indie offensive rom-com Sleeping With Other People, including an interview with director/writer Leslye Headland at the end of the episode. Also, our favorite “politically incorrect” movies.
The Visit had potential, and even has some good parts in it, but it’s clunky and has a trite ending. What happened to M. Knight Shayamalan? Adam gives it 4/10 – you can read his full review here.
Sleeping With Other People is When Harry Met Sally for a-holes. Moustrap. Best use of David Bowie ever. We generally hate Jason Sudeikis, but he is awesome here. Andy loves Allison Brie. Adam gives it a 8.5, and Andy gives it a 9.
Political correctness. What’s the deal? Why you can’t have sacred cows. Context matters more than content. Here’s two incredibly offensive movies that we love:
Adam’s pick: Team America: World Police skewers all sides of the political spectrum. With puppets! That soundtrack.
Andy’s pick: Undercover Brother turns race relations on its head. There is an actual The Man and he’s keeping black people down, so here comes Undercover Brother and The Brotherhood, now with white intern Lance because of affirmative action! So many offensive jokes.
