Dessert means war at the outset of this week’s episode. Megan and Evan start by reviewing the Netflix thriller on stalking, FATAL AFFAIR (2:30), starring Nia Long and Omar Epps. Then they move on to the esoteric, celestial romance, AROUND THE SUN (11:42), which Dave might be a little bit biased about. Next, everyone tackles IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS (25:48), the lengthy Shudder documentary about 1980s horror films. Lastly, they discuss SUMMERLAND (46:47), Jessica Swale’s touching WWII-era British queer romance with some unexpected twists, starring Gemma Arterton and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. On this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about our July poll winner on one-day films: DREDD.

Oprah the All-Powerful is fantastic in Disney’s A WRINKLE IN TIME.
Things are a bit different this week at Spoilerpiece as technical glitches force us to employ some improvised recording methods, so please excuse any changes in pacing/audio quality! Dave couldn’t be here, so Evan and Kris are joined by special guest critic Kristen Halbert of Forces of Geek, who describes some rather unique experiences at Comic-Con. Kris fell short of his goal to watch everything nominated for an Oscar in every category — 51 out of 59 films — and gives his thoughts on some of the categories he felt were a bit off (5:23). Then it’s on to the main event, A WRINKLE IN TIME (14:02), Ava DuVernay’s valiant and heartfelt attempt to adapt the unadaptable and beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle. All three hosts were touched in some way, and though it occasionally suffers from odd pacing and other issues, it can be quite dazzling and powerful when it works. A definite see!
