Black Mass and the Best Crime Movies


This week we’ve got five new movies. The number one move of the week was the cash grab Maze Runner sequel called Maze Runner 2 The Scorch Trials. Black Mass was a well directed well acted film that’s kind of boring. I think it has more to do with the fact that there is a great documentary out there about Whitey Bulger that is better than this movie not to mention that The Departed is loosely based on this subject matter and is a far more entertaining film. It’s hard to be critical, but we were all bored. Everest is a movie that turns idiots into heroes and that pisses Sean off. Grandma may be the best movie of the week but close behind is Captive. If you’re going to see any movies this week we recommend Grandma or Captive.


Our Top Five this week is mob/crime movies: Our discussion includes The Godfather, The Godfather Part 2, Pulp Fiction, Good Fellas, LA Confidential, Miller’s Crossing, The Untouchables, and many more.

Our Undisputed Classic is L’adventura. It’s another Michelangelo Antonioni film that truly is an experience. You may not like the experience but we did. It’s a movie that just marches to it’s own beat. So many movies feel the need to follow a formula but not Antonioni. You can check this movie out on Hulu Plus.

In 1985 we take on Creator

Our trailers this week are:


Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 2
