We start the show this week with TINA (1:41), the comprehensive HBO Max documentary about music icon Tina Turner, who we all love, but one of us much more than the others. Next, we review VOYAGERS (16:07), Neil Burger’s LORD OF THE FLIES on a spaceship, a sci-fi thriller that gets us all extremely riled up. Then we discuss MONDAY (31:23), the Argyris Papadimitropoulos romantic drama starring Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough, which two of us HATE and one of us likes. Lastly, we dig into JAKOB’s WIFE (45:46), the delightful Travis Stevens horror comedy starring the always entertaining Barbara Crampton. And on this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Billy Wilder’s quintessential film noir DOUBLE INDEMNITY.

Dave keeps knives in his microwave?! Find out why this week. We kick off our reviews with ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE (4:21), a four-hour cut of the 2017 superhero film, which for better and worse, represents its original director’s vision. Next, we talk about the heartwarming Oscar-nominated animated fantasy tale WOLFWALKERS (20:04) by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart of Cartoon Saloon. After that, we cover Kier-La Janisse’s three-hour documentary WOODLANDS DARK AND DAYS BEWITCHED: A HISTORY OF FOLK HORROR (28:59), which screened at SXSW and offers a fascinating dissection of folk horror films. Our main event is GODZILLA VS. KONG (43:00), a kaiju movie directed by Adam Wingard with some entertaining fights that’s, unfortunately, lacking in many other departments. And for our Patreon exclusive audio, we follow up on our recent PRETTY IN PINK discussion by talking about the John Hughes/Howard Deutch film SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL

This week we offer some thoughts on whipped cream before we get to the movies. First, Megan and Evan review Shudder’s Indonesian gory horror film THE QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC (3:29), about three friends and their families visiting the orphanage where they grew up, directed by Kimo Stamboel. Next, everyone discusses SUPERNOVA (17:05), Harry Macqueen’s heartbreaking queer road trip film where Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth play a gay couple grappling with the fact that one of them has dementia. Then it’s on to THE LITTLE THINGS (37:48), John Lee Hancock’s 90s-set neo-noir crime drama starring Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto about detectives searching for a serial killer that’s dropping on HBO Max. And on our Patreon exclusive audio this week we discuss RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, a movie two of us have loved since childhood.

A karaoke conversation raises our ire for a specific 90s band this week. Megan and Dave start our movie reviews with the very timely pandemic tale BEFORE THE FIRE (3:10). After that everyone discusses the salty Seth Rogen HBO Max comedy AN AMERICAN PICKLE (17:44). Next, they cover the ultra-violent Jay Baruchel slasher horror film RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE (27:38). Then they wrap up with the thought-provoking Russian sci-fi horror film SPUTNIK (45:34). On this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, they tackle one of their favorites, Joel Schumacher’s 1987 vampire horror film, THE LOST BOYS.
