THE RENTAL, RADIOACTIVE, IMPETIGORE, and YES, GOD, YES on Episode #315

Alison Brie stands against red fog holding her cellphone light in the movie The Rental

Alison Brie is excellent in Dave Franco’s directorial debut THE RENTAL

This week a conversation about pizza takes an unexpected turn before we dig into the movies. Evan and Megan start with Joko Anwar’s IMPETIGORE (2:08), a creepy, but confusing Indonesian horror film on Shudder. Then they cover RADIOACTIVE (13:45), Marjane Satrapi’s surreal Marie Curie biopic starring Rosamund Pike. Next, Dave joins in to talk about YES, GOD, YES (29:38), Karen Maine’s heartwarming early 00s coming-of-age flick. Lastly, they discuss THE RENTAL (44:10), Dave Franco’s tense directorial debut. On our Patreon exclusive audio this week, we talk about F. Gary Gray’s 1996 film SET IT OFF.

THE DISASTER ARTIST, THE FLORIDA PROJECT, and more on Episode #177

Dave Franco laughing in a movie theater with James Franco in THE DISASTER ARTIST.

James Franco goes for broke as Tommy Wiseau in THE DISASTER ARTIST.

After Evan tells Kris and Dave about his exploding sofa cushions, they delve into the week’s movies. First there’s THE DISASTER ARTIST (6:30), the absolutely wonderful making-of-THE-ROOM movie directed by James Franco and starring Franco as Tommy Wiseau and his brother Dave Franco as Greg Sestero. Then there’s Sean Baker’s THE FLORIDA PROJECT (22:07), which all three guys saw and have lots of opinions about.

THE CONJURING 2, NOW YOU SEE ME 2, TALE OF TALES, and WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY on Episode #100

A moment between jump scares in THE CONJURING 2.

Spoilerpiece Theatre turns 100 this week, so the guys do something special to thank their fans! Since it’s the 100th episode that also means Dave has finally seen WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY. Does he appreciate it as emphatically as Kris? Find out starting at the 4:00 mark. Next Evan and Kris cover THE CONJURING 2 (at 17:53), a super long James Wan horror movie with a lot of jump scares and a lot of little annoying things that make Evan very angry. After his anger cools, Evan reviews NOW YOU SEE ME 2 (at 42:38), which has some great magic scenes, but a convoluted plot that relies too much on you remembering information from the first movie. Lastly, Kris discusses TALE OF TALES (at 54:54), a messed up Italian anthology film that confuses the heck out of Dave and Evan with its interwoven tales that have no connection. Kris uses the conversation as an opportunity to state his case about why there should be more anthology films and television shows.
