NON-FICTION, BRIGHTBURN, MEETING GORBACHEV, and GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS with special guest “MovieBob” Chipman on Episode #255

On this week’s episode, Dave and Kris are joined by our friend, colleague, and returning guest Bob “MovieBob” Chipman! Kicking things off, Dave recaps Olivier Assayas’s new film, NON-FICTION (4:10), which if nothing else, is certainly French. Then Bob fills us in on BRIGHTBURN (14:46), the alternate take on superhero origin stories that imagines a Clark Kent-like character as a sociopath and killer. It’s essentially a B movie with a big budget and star power, but is interesting enough to seek out. Next up is Kris with Werner Herzog’s MEETING GORBACHEV (23:07), which is exactly what it sounds like, and is exactly why you should go see it. Closing out this episode is Bob and Kris barely containing their excitement for GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS (39:41), a drastic improvement on its predecessor that impresses in several ways — visuals, sound, just the right amount of lore, and putting the focus back on the monsters themselves.

Olivia Wilde’s BOOKSMART, EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL, and VILE and the live-action ALADDIN on Episode #254

Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever will make you laugh your ass off in Olivia Wilde’s Booksmart

(NOTE: This show opens with the music, so be warned that it’s a little louder than usual.) Welcome to a diverse week of movies on Spoilerpiece! As Kris notes, there couldn’t be four more different flicks featured on the show. First, Kris talks a little about WHITE CROW (2:20), which Dave recently saw (and wanted to hear Kris’ opinion), then Dave dives into Olivia Wilde’s feature-directing debut BOOKSMART (7:16) and his interview with Wilde. Then Evan covers EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL, AND VILE (18:16), the Ted Bundy movie starring Zac Efron and directed by Joe Berlinger (and it features some serious stunt casting). Finally, Kris talks the Disney live-action remake of ALADDIN (32:30) and blue Will Smith. Why is 38 minutes longer than the animated version? Kris tells you why!

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 – PARABELLUM, and Zhang Yimou’s SHADOW on Episode #253

Pick up the pace, Mr. Wick. You’re only safe for an hour!

Lots of action on the show this week. First up, Kris and Evan talk about Zhang Yimou’s latest, SHADOW (3:30). Plus, they both have tips on how to NOT watch certain types of movies (in this case, action). Then it’s the main event, JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 — PARABELLUM (16:30). First, Evan catches us up on the first two John Wicks (he watched them for the first time over the weekend), and then it’s talk of fightin’ and killin’ as Keanu Reeves more or less turns every assassin in the world into mincemeat. Plus, Kris breaks down whether the linguistics of JOHN WICK hold up.

“This lighting from below doesn’t show off my double chin, does it?” Dennis Quaid in The Intruder.

The cast-offs and the also-rans join the big swingin’ dicks to save the universe in Avengers: Endgame

Then it’s AVENGERS: ENDGAME (22:26), the final (?) movie in this phase of the Marvel cinematic universe. And yes, we spoil the ever-loving crap out of it.

IFFBoston Preview w/ Nancy Campbell and Brian Tamm, LITTLE WOODS and PRINCE OF EGYPT revisited on Episode #249

Lily James is the fuck-up sister and Tessa Thompson has her head screwed on straight, and they’re still in a whole lot of trouble in Little Woods.

This week, Kris and Evan are joined by Nancy Campbell and Brian Tamm of the always spectacular IFFBoston ahead of the annual weeklong festival (April 24 through May 1).  They discuss some of the exciting films, panels, guest appearances, and events of the fest that takes over three of Boston’s best theaters: Somerville, Brattle, and Coolidge. It’s a celebration of film community, and Nancy and Brian highlight filmmakers from years past who have gone on to helm some of the biggest and best movies of the past decade. Later, we meet back up with Dave, who runs us through his thoughts on LITTLE WOODS (53:38), and we close with Evan’s rewatching of THE PRINCE OF EGYPT (1:01:52) ahead of Passover.

SHAZAM! and THE WIND on Spoilerpiece #247

Is it just me or is Zachary Levi really looking like he’d rather shoot these lightning bolts from his penis?

Two new movies on this week’s episode: atmospheric horror western THE WIND (3:37) and comedy-superhero flick SHAZAM! (14:21). The former is a bleak commentary on isolation and the fear of nothingness faced by women in the Old West, the latter is a gigglefest that continues DC’s upward trend. Check it out!
