This week we’ve got four new movies. It’s a bad week for movies. It’s Halloween weekend and the studios decided to release movies that could disappear quietly. Burnt, could have been ok, but it didn’t have much of a sense of humor. Our Brand is Crisis keeps pulling it’s punches which leaves us with just kind of a regular movie. Truth is a rather disappointing movie. The movie ends up being a movie that tries to prove George Bush lied. Well no shit and it’s just kind of a weak movie because of that. Bone Tomahawk is a pretty solid western horror film. it’s brutal, so brutal that I had to turn my head and you know what kind of sick movies I like.
Top Five this week is Political films. We talk about All the Presidents Men, Dr. Strangelove, Milk, Argo, An American President, The Contender, Primary Colors, Dave, Election, In the Loop, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and more.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is Wag the Dog. A movie that is so ahead of it’s time while being behind the times. It’s funny, dark and so true. It’s a remarkable movie.

This week we’ve got three new movies. The Perfect Guy is an ok movie that could have been really good if it didn’t have to be politically correct. It tries to take two different lanes. On one hand the movie wants to be a serious movie about women putting up with abusive horrible men. In another lane is a campy thriller, however these lanes don’t work simultaneously and therefore it’s kind of a bad movie. 90 Minutes in Heaven is awful…even for a religious movie. The Visit however is actually a pretty good movie. M. Night Shyamalan is back. It has a great twist, even if you figure it out. It’s hilarious, it’s scary, it’s a lot of fun please go see this movie.
Our Top Five this week is twist endings. We talk about Psycho, Saw, Empire Strikes Back, Oldboy, Vertigo, The Usual Suspects, Memento, Primal Fear, Fallen, Fight Club, and The Sixth Sense.
Our Undisputed Classic is The Sixth Sense.
