This week Dave reveals something he feels like he has done right as a parent before any movies are discussed. Since Kris caught VICTORIA AND ABDUL (3:09), he leads off by explaining why Dave is right about it, before expressing some insights of his own. After that, Evan covers the Online New England Film Festival (6:02) by sharing the festival’s award winners and some of his favorite shorts. Next, Dave talks about David Lynch’s DUNE (13:52), raising several questions, including, ‘Who thought it was a good idea to let Toto do the score?’ Following this “Riedel’s Recap,” Kris spoilerpieces the Netflix film GERALD’S GAME (23:08), getting into grisly detail about why it made him want to throw up. Finally, Dave and Evan review the week’s big movie BLADE RUNNER 2049 (44:35) by discussing its atmosphere, aesthetic, and length in comparison to Ridley Scott’s original.

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT – Part 1 and WORKING GIRL on Episode #88

Allegiant

This image is way cooler than anything that actually happens in THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT – Part 1.

The guys stumble onto their new band name this week before they talk about Evan’s vacation to LA, which involved lots of decadent eating. After a Garfield tangent, Evan and Kris ponder why so many people seem to get shot in the back during THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT – Part 1, a story they didn’t realize would be told in two parts. Kris then describes how Jeff Daniels is like his character in THE MARTIAN only evil, and about why he’s “one of those bad guys who has an adjective.” With all the film’s issues, Evan shares why he still prefers the series to THE HUNGER GAMES. Following a tangent about westerns, specifically YOUNG GUNS, the episode transitions into Dave and Evan discussing another 80s movie: WORKING GIRL. Evan has no idea how much Dave loves the film, and is totally unprepared for how well Dave can quote it. The two of them enjoy spoilerpiecing it for Kris with talk about Harrison Ford’s grimace, its memorable lines, and its portrayal of workplace politics.

Episode #75: STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, a Spoilerpiece Prequel, and an Email from France

Listen as we spoil the shit out of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS

The guys kick off their STAR WARS episode with a Spoilerpiece prequel: the origin story of Kris Jenson’s love affair with burritos. Thankfully it’s much shorter and funnier than the ones George Lucas did. After that, the guys discuss a very kind email they received from a fan in France. Then they head right into the main event by reviewing STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, a film which miraculously all of them have seen. All three really like it, so they dig in deep to talk about why they think it works so well. Things get pretty spoilerific, so only tune in if you’ve seen the movie or you can handle it. You’ve been warned.

Episode #41: THE WATER DIVINER, LITTLE BOY, THE AGE OF ADALINE, and fan mail!

It’s fan mail day on Spoilerpiece Theatre. Dave reads a letter his editors received at the Santa Fe Reporter, and the writer, in admonishing Dave for using foul language, swears more than Dave ever does in print. Evan rips LITTLE BOY a new one, Kris gets into history with his review of Russell Crowe’s THE WATER DIVINER (and Evan and Dave do a lot of talking with Australian accents), and Dave is on board with THE AGE OF ADALINE’s magical realism. Please forgive the audio problem we had at the end of the recording. One of the mic cords went dead and a few of Kris’ final thoughts are at low volume; it’ll be fixed by the next episode.

Episode #8: THE ONE I LOVE, THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD, and THE CONGRESS

TheOneILove_still5_ElisabethMoss_MarkDuplass

It’s a goddamn bumper crop of movies on Spoilerpiece Theatre this week. We’ve got THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD which only Kris has seen, THE CONGRESS, which Dave and Kris saw (and kind of wish they hadn’t), and Evan saw THE ONE I LOVE and delights in spoiling the hell out of it. In fact, this many be the first case of spoiling in history that got Dave and Kris to reeeeeally want to see a movie. There are also plenty of tangents and some anti-Connecticut sentiments throughout.

Episode #5: THE EXPENDABLES 3 and a tribute to Robin Williams

Sylvester Stallone and the gang are back for THE EXPENDABLES 3, which sparks Kris’ rumination on the place of PG-13 sequels in otherwise R-rated franchises. We take lots of turns into Tangent Town, stopping on Die Hard Road, Wesley Snipes Street, and Kelsey Grammer Blvd., and Dave makes a connection between PREDATOR and Alfred Hitchcock. We open with a talk about Robin Williams, who died on Aug. 11, 2014.
