Bad Santa 2
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.
In 1985 we take on To Live and Die in LA, Nightmare on Elm Street 2, Death Wish 3
Our trailers this week are:
Jane Got a Gun
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
