This week we’ve got four new movies. Transporter Refueld came out and that is basically just an Audi commercial. A Walk in the Woods is essentially Grump Old Men 3. Dragon Blade wasn’t quite bad wasn’t quite good…I don’t really know what it is. It looks like it’s so bad it’s good, but that’s not the case it just kind of exists. Bloodsucking Bastards is a ton of fun and you can see it on demand right now….go do that.
Our Top Five this week is Robert Redford films which included All the Presidents Men, The Natural, Three Days of the Condor, Captain America The Winter’s Soldier, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting etc
Our Undisputed Classic ended up just being Netflix Challenge. Sean challenged us to pick a movie Netflix recommended to us. Those movies ended up being Hook, Skeleton Twins, and Comet.

Our trailers this week are:
The Night Before
The Danish Girl
“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.
The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.
We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.
