This week we’ve got three new movies. Goosebumps won the weekend but it could’ve been better. Guillermo Del Toro disappoints with Crimson Peak. It’s good, but should’ve been great. Then there was Steve Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies. It was far and away the best movie of the weekend. Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are on their way to Academy Award nominations.
Top Five this week Steven Spielberg movies. We talk Shindler’s List, Jaws, Jurassic Park, E.T., Minority Report, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Saving Private Ryan.
Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Steven Spielberg film we hadn’t seen which included Duel, Munich and The Terminal…Sean’s seen The Terminal but he doesn’t like it so we made him watch it again.
In 1985 we take on The Stuff and Reanimator
Our trailers this week are:
Kill Your Friends
He Never Died
