It’s a pre-sequel! Seriously, this movie should have been horrible, and it’s somehow pretty good! Female characters and costume design are fantastic. The rest? Maybe not as much. The two queens’ relationships as sisters. Love conquers all? Adam and Brooke give it a 7, Andy gives it a 6.5.

Ryan Reynolds tweets about Brewvies getting a fine for showing Deadpool. It’s because it’s a penis, not boobs. This Film is Not Yet Rated. The stakes and the legal case. It’s censorship.

Speaking of, remember when Tipper Gore got offended at some Prince lyrics? SNL. Purple Rain works better as a concert film. Batman. Prince as emotional release. All the stories are true! A true original who did his own thing. We’ll miss you.

Episode 14 – In Memoriam: Wes Craven, No Escape, We Are Your Friends

We lost one of the great ones in Wes Craven. Our In Memoriam is tacked on the end of the episode because we heard right after we finished recording. We also review No Escape, We Are Your Friends, and talk about iconic movie soundtracks.

No Escape – Owen Wilson, Luke Bell and family try to escape from violence-plagued unnamed country following an anti-Western coup. Intense, but unsatisfying. Technically well-done, but doesn’t let you breathe. Violence is over the top, Asians are treated like zombies. Pierce Brosnan’s heavy-handed political rant and Deus Ex Machina. Adam gives it 3/10, Andy gives it 4/10 — all of that is for Lake Bell. Andy’s full review here.

We Are Your Friends – Zac Efron wants to be a DJ. It’s more like a coming of age story. Great music if you like EDM. Adam gives it a 7/10. Full review here.

Soundtracks can take a movie from great to legendary. Andy’s recommendation is O Brother, Where Art Thou and Adam recommends Guardians of the Galaxy.

In Memoriam for Wes Craven, including Adam’s husband Eddie. He reinvented the horror genre several times.
