Love & Mercy
Queen of Earth

Straight Outta Compton
The Night Before

This week we’ve got several new movies. It’s Hunger Games week. While not as many people went to go see this movie it’s actually far and away the best of the series. It’s timing is perfect and it’s really well done. Spotlight is an incredible movie, one of the years best. Everybody in the movie is award worthy. The Secret in their Eyes is a little disappointing, but only because it could’ve been amazing. The Night Before is hilarious.
Top Five this week is journalists in the movies: We talk about Clark Kent, Alexander Knox, Billy Batson, Sweet Polly Purebred, The Paper, Broadcast News, Almost Famous, Anchorman, His Girl Friday, The Insider, Citizen Kane and more.
For our Undisputed Classic we take on Battle Royale
In 1985 White Knights
Our trailers this week are:
How to be Single
Gods of Egypt
Star Wars – Honest Trailer
This weeks episode is a downer. Pixels disappoints, Southpaw & Paper Towns are to formulaic. Mr. Holmes is great but nobody has seen it. Adam Sandler is almost single handedly the only thing wrong with Pixels and that breaks my heart. I want to accuse Sean of being a dumb critics, but his audience didn’t even go and see Pixels so I can’t defend Sandler. Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing in Southpaw, but the movie is kind of dumb. It was written for Eminem and oddly enough would have been a better movie if Eminem was in the movie. It’s all Gyllenhaal’s fault. Paper Towns is fine. Again we’ve seen it before, it’s a formula. It’s forgettable which kind of makes it worse than a bad movie. At least its not Fault in Our Stars or something by Nicolas Sparks. Then there is Mr. Holmes starring Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes is such a unique interesting movie that everyone should go see right now.
Our Undisputed Classic is Rebel Without A Cause. Sean explains why this movie has held up and is such a great classic. I had a hard time getting into it but I can’t argue against anything Sean says. He even does a pretty good job of explaining why I don’t think it holds up.
In 1985 European Vacation, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Heavenly Kid
Our trailers this week are:
Queen of Elizabeth
San Andreas was this weeks big release. It’s basically The Rock fighting an earthquake. It’s highly entertaining while being highly offensive…which makes it hard for Sean to admit he likes it. Sean generally has no problem admitting to liking or disliking something but he was so offended by “San Andreas” that he was kind of embarrassed for having fun.
Cameron Crowe is back with “Aloha.” When the studio that made this movie trashes the movie via email then those emails go public a week before the movie comes out you know you’re in for a long day. The movies not complete. There’s something brilliant somewhere there but we’re not sure if it’s still in Cameron Crowe’s head or on the cutting room floor.
Have you seen Kung Fury yet…go see it as soon as you’re done with this podcast.
We asked our audience their favorite Cameron Crowe films. Among the movies selected we had “Untitled” or “Almost Famous,” “Say Anything” and “Singles.
Our Undisputed Classic was Cameron Crowe themed and we took a look at “Jerry Maguire,” “Elizabethtown” and “Pearl Jam 20.”
