BECKETT, THE SUICIDE SQUAD, and VIVO on Episode #370

John David Washington in Ferdinando Cito Filomarino's thriller BECKETT

Get ready for a singing animated kinkajou, a ragtag group of antiheroes blowing up a fake Latin American country, and a clueless American getting the crap kicked out of him in Greece! We start this week with Kirk DeMicco and Brandon Jeffords’s sweet but saccharine Netflix animated film VIVO (0:55), starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ynairaly Simo, Zoe Saldana, and Gloria Estefan. Next, we discuss James Gunn’s THE SUICIDE SQUAD (15:36), not to be confused with that other awful DC movie about a task force of supervillains, starring an ensemble cast including Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Daniela Melchior, Sylvester Stallone, and Viola Davis. Gunn’s adaptation is much better, but still has us split. And lastly we review Ferdinando Cito Filomarino’s Netflix thriller BECKETT (37:11) starring John David Washington, which has some strong action, yet weak writing. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Sam Raimi’s 2009 horror film DRAG ME TO HELL!

RELIC, THE BEACH HOUSE, WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES, and HAMILTON on Episode #313

Emily Mortimer, Bella Heathcote, and Robyn Nevin in RELIC

This week it’s Junkfoodpiece Theatre and who sucks before Megan excitedly reviews HAMILTON (2:55), a terrific film version of the musical. Then Evan and Megan explore WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES (10:17), an in-your-face Japanese film that swings for the fences with mixed success. Next, everyone digs into THE BEACH HOUSE (21:05), an eco-horror sci-fi film with solid body horror that very much divides our hosts. Lastly, they all review RELIC (35:29) a movie with compelling physical and metaphorical horror that caught us off-guard with its heartbreaking and powerful emotional resonance. On our Patreon exclusive bonus episode, we discuss the 1994 action film BLOWN AWAY, starring Jeff Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones.
