This week we’ve got three new movies. We kick things off with Hotel Transylvania. We’re three grown men so our opinion doesn’t really matter but at some point Sean indirectly calls our kids dumb. The Intern ends up being a pretty solid Nancy Meyers movie, possibly her best. Eli Roth lets us down with The Green Inferno. I wanted it to be good and theres a lot of potential here but the execution was just off.
Our Top Five this week is our favorite messed up movies which include A Serbian Film, Salo: 120 Days of Sodom, Saw, Requiem For a Dream, Irreversible, Oldboy, I Spit on Your Grave, A Clockwork Orange, and more
Our Undisputed Classic is Cannibal Holocaust. It’s a movie all three of us ended up liking. It’s shocking but it’s well made and truly is terrifying.
In 1985 we take on Maxie, Invasion USA and Code Named Emerald
Our trailers this week are:
The Big Short
Who would have thought that in a year that includes an Avengers movie and a Star Wars movie that Jurassic World would have been the biggest movie of the year….so far? Jurassic World is one of the best monster movies I’ve seen in awhile. I was alone in thinking this however. Sean liked it but has it behind Furious 7, Avengers and Mad Max this year. In my opinion only Mad Max is better and more fun. Then there’s Josh who couldn’t not watch it as a scientific drama rather than a monster movie. His loss.
We also take a look at Kyle Smith’s article on how women can’t possibly comprehend Goodfellas. Obviously we disagree with him however what offends us more than his unintentionally sexist theme is his offensive take on Goodfellas comparing it to Entourage. Fuck you Kyle Smith.
