This week “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” came out and destroyed the box office. Neither Josh or Sean liked it, but we’re really not the audience for this movie or these series of movies. The movie we really wanted to talk about is “Whiplash.” In my opinion it is to jazz what “Rocky” is to boxing in that it’s good but that’s not what it looks like when someone is playing the drums. I liked it the least of the three but I still liked it. Sean loved it.
Sean and I watched “Foxcatcher,” we dabble with that a little bit but don’t get too into it. Sean saw “The Theory of Everything” and doesn’t think it needs to exist. Finally there’s Joe Berlinger’s “Whitey” which Sean calls the best documentary of the year. It’ll ruin your day, that’s for sure.
This weeks Undisputed Classic is Woody Allen’s “Manhattan.”
