Kris has a nasty case of the Super Plague so guest Kristen Halbert joins Evan and Dave in hating on kale before the movies this week. First Dave describes why watching the Aretha Franklin documentary AMAZING GRACE (3:51) is a spiritual experience. Then Kristen and Evan talk about why LITTLE (11:37) is absolutely hilarious and genuine despite the fact that it borrows from several films about adults turning into the child versions of themselves. Lastly, all three of them join forces for I’M JUST FUCKING WITH YOU (27:45), the latest in Hulu’s INTO THE DARK series, which has them looking for excuses to talk about literally anything else. Tangents ahoy! Also don’t forget to sign up for our Patreon, where you can hear exclusive audio, like this week’s clip of Evan and Dave discussing ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN.

POLAR, DOWN, and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD on Episode #241

Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) rides a dragon with a fleet of dragons and riders behind him in the animated film How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Dragons, dragons everywhere in HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD

This week, Dave recaps POLAR (2:52), clarifying last week’s confusion over ARCTIC. Very different films! Next, Evan and Dave recommend DOWN (17:15), an entry in Blumhouse’s INTO THE DARK series on Hulu, full of lean, holiday-themed horror flicks. This one is a Valentine’s Day creepfest that is well worth your time. Then, Evan and Kris talkĀ HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD (23:28), a fine conclusion to a great family-friendly series.

Episode #238: The FYRE FESTIVAL documentaries on Netflix and Hulu, and Adam McKay’s VICE

Fyre

Because everyone is talking about the Fyre Festival documentaries on Netflix (FYRE) and Hulu (FYRE FRAUD), Kris, Dave, and Evan dive headlong into the two competing flicks (5:14). Think there isn’t enough Fyre disaster to support two documentaries? Think again! Then it’s onto Adam McKay’s VICE starring Christian Bale as Dick Cheney. Why is it Kris’ nomination as the worst movie to ever receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination? Explanations begin at 26:11. On our exclusive Patreon audio segment this week, we have a chat about how much we love the late Bill Paxton, and whether it’s possible to get the clap in space.

SUBURBICON, TOO FUNNY TO FAIL, and G.I. JANE on Episode #172

Left to right: Julianne Moore as Margaret and Matt Damon as Gardner in SUBURBICON, from Paramount Pictures and Black Bear Pictures.

Julianne Moore and Matt Damon in SUBURBICON, a movie that would have been better if the Coen Brothers made it in the 80s.

This week the guys reminisce about long-gone insults of yesteryear before Kris offers a unique barb of his own design. For the movies, Evan delivers a “Crewind” of G.I. JANE (5:00), the Ridley Scott picture where Demi Moore is a badass Navy SEAL in training trapped in a story that gets a little muddled with conspiracy plots. Next Dave covers TOO FUNNY TO FAIL (17:17), a rollicking documentary on Hulu about the short-lived DANA CARVEY SHOW that explains that the inspiration for some of the show’s best sketches while reflecting on its failure. Then the guys take on SUBURBICON (28:35), a George Clooney film that borrows an old Coen Brothers script, but fails to imitate them effectively. While they chide it for being too heavy-handed and trying to cover too much narrative ground, they can all agree that Oscar Isaac injects much-needed vitality into his brief scenes.
