Longtime friend of the show Dede Crimmins joins the guys this week to discuss what they know about the band Foghat. They have so many movies to talk about that they have a hard time figuring out where to begin. Dave goes first with lightning fast “Riedel’s Recaps” of BAD COMPANY (6:25), MENASHE (7:55), and THE BIG SICK (11:44), before Dede shares her top pics from this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival: MY FRIEND DAHMER (14:43), MOHAWK (18:15), and LOWLIFE (19:54). Then she, Dave, and Kris spoilerpiece ANNABELLE: CREATION (24:15), which is so creepy that Kris watched some scenes through his fingers. Next, Dave gives his one-minute take on GOOD TIME (49:41), a movie with Robert Pattinson making the best bad decisions, that he says is one of the best he’s ever seen. Following that, Evan reviews KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES (51:49), a cute spy comedy that he’s surprised more people haven’t seen. Finally, Dave and Kris conclude with WIND RIVER (1:00:17), a procedural about a murder on an Indian reservation that they agree is one of the best films of this year.
Fan favorite Dede Crimmins from All Things Horror and Cinematic Essential joins Evan and Kris in this week’s episode. The three of them reminisce about QUANTUM LEAP and UNSOLVED MYSTERIES before Dede discusses her upcoming trip to the Fantasia International Film Festival. Once Kris and Evan recover from the recover from hearing the number of movies she plans to see, they ask her about some her favorites from the festival. Among them are DEATHGASM, SUBURBAN GOTHIC, and ABSENTIA. First, they cover Amy Schumer’s comedy TRAINWRECK, which is formulaic but a consistently funny human experience. After they get a chance to discuss Judd Apatow’s shortcomings they move on to reviewing Marvel’s ANT-MAN, a heist flick that’s also a superhero movie. Kris thinks it has a breeziness that’s been desperately lacking in Marvel movies. Evan and Dede agree, while adding that Paul Rudd has evolved from just a pretty face into the total package as an actor.
