The guys have something to say about BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II this week, but it’s not what you’d expect. Once they get that out of their system, Evan covers VICTORIA, which gets Dave speaking German and Franch, yes that’s right, Franch. After a brief tangent on ALIEN and confusion about who is in the movie 88 MINUTES, Evan talks about how VICTORIA takes a while to get going, becomes super tense, and then overstays its welcome. Then Dave jumps in to describe Idris Elba’s cockswagger in Cary Fukunaga’s BEASTS OF NO NATION, a good film also that overstays its welcome, on top of being heavy and horrifying. After that, Kris talks about THE LAST WITCH HUNTER’s magical dismemberment and why he loves Vin Diesel so much. Lastly, Dave stars in a new segment called Riedel’s Recaps, where he offers counterpoints to Kris and Evan’s previous reviews of STEVE JOBS and DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD.

HE NAMED ME MALALA, DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD, and TWIXT on Episode #65

Malala in HE NAMED ME MALALA

Malala is such an inspiration. It’s a shame her documentary is so patronizing.

Kris and Evan fly duo this week since Dave can’t make it, but at least he’s able to call in and share a strange dream he had. After Evan and Kris ponder its meaning, they dive into this week’s movies. Kris starts off by reviewing the documentary HE NAMED ME MALALA, which disappointingly patronizes its subject. Then Evan talks about the documentary DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD, a funny, fast-moving movie with great music that recounts the history National Lampoon Magazine. Finally, both of them discuss TWIXT, a bizarre film by Francis Ford Coppola that neither of them knew about until they watched it on Netflix. They quickly discovered why. It’s just a strange flick that baffles them for a million reasons. Tangents this week include Crean family holiday movies and actors who are difficult to work with.
