Episode 25 – Sundance 2017 Day One

Episode 22 – Gimme Those Star Wars, Don’t Let Them End

Taking our cue from Rogue One, we assemble our own gaggle of misfit freaks to take on the latest superweapon of the Disney Empire. The return of Frankie and Anthony make this our biggest cast yet and a long one to boot, so here are the time jumps:

  • 17:00 – Rogue One credits (and immediate Godzilla tangent).
  • 20:20 – Checklist of Frankie’s “Rogue One: What I Don’t Want to See!” video from the first Rogue One and whether the final product passes the test.
  •  37:15 – Is Rogue One the best war movie in years? And other questions to which the answer is “no.” General review arguing from here on out.

Episode 18 – All The Old Dudes

Is it Chan-wook Park or Park Chan-wook? How good is Chan-wook’s latest, The Handmaiden? And how fucking good is his 2003 classic, Oldboy? (Rhetorical question.)

Special appearance by the Script Doctor, who promises a sure-fire fix to Oldboy‘s only screenplay flaw.

Episode 17 – Is The Squid Who Is Tall Boring?

The Hard Boys have cornered the market of Not Enjoying Arrival, that movie where two-dimensional characters wade through a nonsense plot to a morally abhorrent resolution played like Hallmark schmaltz, which everyone unaccountably loves.
