This T. Rex is all, “Whoa, you brought me back to life just so I could star in this piece of dreck? FUCK THAT SHIT.” Chomp.
Let’s get a technical glitch out of the way before we forget: We recorded at a different location from our usual spot because – wait for it! – Evan got married! Yay! But he’s on his honeymoon and his pad isn’t available and we recorded at Kris’ place and we forgot to unplug the refrigerator. That means you can hear it buzzing from about the 9:00-minute mark to about 26:15. Totes sorry, peeps. As for movies, Kris tackles ANNIHILATION (3:25) in a new “Keeping Up with the Jensons” segment. Then Dave has a few words about THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR (14:20) for “Riedel’s Recaps.” JUSTICE LEAGUE (19:20) gets the heretofore unheard of “Riedel’s Up with the Jensons” treatment, as both Kris and Dave tackle this weirdo what-the-eff-is-this movie. The new release this week is JURASSIC PARK: FALLEN KINGDOM (31:50). Don’t forget to check out our Patreon page, and to borrow a line from the Bartles & Jaymes guys: Thank you for your support!
JUSTICE LEAGUE….ASSEMBLED…minus Superman and Batman.
This week our good friend and co-host Kristofer Jenson is sidelined by the plague, so honorary fourth member Sean Burns fills in. He gets things started off (3:40) with a special guest segment, “Burned Out with Sean Burns,” in which he tells Dave and Evan what he thinks of THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI. Evan follows things up with IN BETWEEN and KEEP THE CHANGE (8:50), which are showing at the Boston Jewish Film Festival. Then Sean and Dave weigh in on Richard Linklater’s LAST FLAG FLYING (18:00), the spiritual sequel to THE LAST DETAIL. Finally, it’s superhero time as Evan and Dave discuss JUSTICE LEAGUE (28:55) and Sean more or less correctly guesses the plot even though he hasn’t seen it.
