Ben Affleck stands with his hands on a basketball player's shoulders giving advice in the movie The Way Back
Ben Affleck gives some profanity-filled advice to one of his players in THE WAY BACK

Dave’s on vaca one last week, so Kristen Halbert fills in to discuss a panel about video game to film adaptations (4:05) that she and Evan attended at PAX East. After they explore ideas for future adaptations, Megan reviews the new Pixar film ONWARD (21:23), a heartwarming family tale. Next she and Evan discuss THE LODGE (29:30), a creepy horror flick they’re split on. Finally, everyone digs into THE WAY BACK (47:35), a Ben Affleck film about addiction that leaves one host feeling less than enthusiastic.

JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, ANNIHILATION, JUSTICE LEAGUE, and THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR on Episode #206

merlin_139639278_9a188819-4a92-4883-b283-ab05657c3c66-jumbo

This T. Rex is all, “Whoa, you brought me back to life just so I could star in this piece of dreck? FUCK THAT SHIT.” Chomp.

Let’s get a technical glitch out of the way before we forget: We recorded at a different location from our usual spot because – wait for it! – Evan got married! Yay! But he’s on his honeymoon and his pad isn’t available and we recorded at Kris’ place and we forgot to unplug the refrigerator. That means you can hear it buzzing from about the 9:00-minute mark to about 26:15. Totes sorry, peeps. As for movies, Kris tackles ANNIHILATION (3:25) in a new “Keeping Up with the Jensons” segment. Then Dave has a few words about THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR (14:20) for “Riedel’s Recaps.” JUSTICE LEAGUE (19:20) gets the heretofore unheard of “Riedel’s Up with the Jensons” treatment, as both Kris and Dave tackle this weirdo what-the-eff-is-this movie. The new release this week is JURASSIC PARK: FALLEN KINGDOM (31:50). Don’t forget to check out our Patreon page, and to borrow a line from the Bartles & Jaymes guys: Thank you for your support!

ASSASSIN’S CREED, JULIETA, PASSENGERS, and FENCES on Episode #128

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in PASSENGERS

Chris Pratt as an awful human being in PASSENGERS.

So much Spoilerpiecing to do this week! We lead things off with a call from a friend in France, and then we get down to spoiling the snot out of ASSASSIN’S CREED. Evan follows that up with Almodovar’s JULIETA, and then Kris uses all his strength to get through PASSENGERS, which sounds like it was an ordeal and a half. Finally, Evan and Dave talk FENCES, Denzel’s latest directorial effort (an adaptation of August Wilson’s renowned play).

JURASSIC WORLD and THE CONNECTION with Movie Bob on Episode #48

Chris Pratt with raptors in JURASSIC WORLD

JURASSIC WORLD: Starring Chris Pratt as “Velociraptor Dundee”

The one and only Bob Chipman aka “Movie Bob” joins Evan and Kris for this week’s episode about JURASSIC WORLD and THE CONNECTION. First up is a game of “Get to Know Your Guest Host,” where Bob shares how he got into reviewing movies. After that Bob and Kris spoilerpiece Jurassic World, a film that Bob enjoyed despite its silliness. Just how silly is it? Well, there are weaponized dinosaurs and Chris Pratt basically plays “Velociraptor Dundee.” After Bob and Kris get all the spoiling out of their systems, Evan fills them in on THE CONNECTION, a movie which feels like the French version of Michael Mann’s HEAT. Chekhov’s Gun discussions and Indiana Jones references are in ample supply, as are tangents about BLOWN AWAY and THE GODFATHER.
