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.
In 1985 City Limits and Joshua Then and Now
Our trailers this week are:
The Night Before
The Danish Girl
Who would have thought that in a year that includes an Avengers movie and a Star Wars movie that Jurassic World would have been the biggest movie of the year….so far? Jurassic World is one of the best monster movies I’ve seen in awhile. I was alone in thinking this however. Sean liked it but has it behind Furious 7, Avengers and Mad Max this year. In my opinion only Mad Max is better and more fun. Then there’s Josh who couldn’t not watch it as a scientific drama rather than a monster movie. His loss.
We also take a look at Kyle Smith’s article on how women can’t possibly comprehend Goodfellas. Obviously we disagree with him however what offends us more than his unintentionally sexist theme is his offensive take on Goodfellas comparing it to Entourage. Fuck you Kyle Smith.
