MORTAL KOMBAT, SILO, and GOLDEN ARM on Episode #356

Ludi Lin as Liu Kang and Max Huang as Kung Lao in film Mortal Kombat

Dave is off this week, so Megan and Evan talk about the movies. First, we review Marshall Burnette’s sporadically intense thriller SILO (2:31) about the frantic attempt to rescue a teenager who’s stuck in a grain silo. Then we discuss Maureen Bharoocha’s charming comedy GOLDEN ARM (16:01), about a trucker (Betsy Sodaro) who trains her timid friend (Mary Holland) to compete in the National Ladies Arm Wrestling Tournament. Finally, we test our might with MORTAL KOMBAT (29:59), Simon McQuoid’s adaptation of the famous video game, which we have very different opinions about. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we discuss Albert Brooks’s 1991 unconventional rom-com, DEFENDING YOUR LIFE.
