The Call Up
This week we’ve got five new movies. Four of the new movies bombed including The Last Witch Hunter, Jem and the Hollograms, Rock the Kasbah and Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs however according our resident film critic is the best movie in the last three years. The other three are pretty bad. Then we were invited by A24 to screen Room, so we sent Josh to Chicago and he thinks it was good but was hoping for great.
Top Five this week is biopics. We talk Raging Bull, Amadeus, Shindler’s List, Good Fellas, The Social Network, Love and Mercy, Straight Outta Compton, Good Night and Good Luck, Lawrence of Arabia, Frida, Milk etc

Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens
This week we’ve got four new movies this week. The Martian, Sicario, The Walk and Hell and Back. The first three movies are fantastic. The Walk was released in IMAX only and it didn’t do very but it’s a fantastic film. We highly recommend checking it out. The Martian and Sicario also came out and they are two of the best films of the year so far. They’ll most likely be overlooked come award season which is unfortunate. Then there is Hell and Back which nobody knew about and Sean didn’t find funny.
Our Undisputed Classic is Solaris. Yes there are multiple Solaris films. We talk about the 1972 and the 2002 version and we had a really great conversation about these films and about Science Fiction in general.
In 1985 we take on Commando and Jagged Edge
Our trailers this week are:
Ip Man 3
