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 talk HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD (23:28), a fine conclusion to a great family-friendly series.

Festival Roundup, ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, ARCTIC, HAPPY DEATH DAY 2 U, and RUSSIAN DOLL on Episode #240

Jessica Rothe is a riot in the sci-fi comedy sequel HAPPY DEATH DAY 2 U.

On this week’s show, Evan runs us through his week in festivals: Boston Science Fiction Film Festival and Boston Israeli Film Festival (3:43). Then Kris makes the case for why you should take ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL (10:25) seriously and see it this weekend — prove the pundits wrong! Dave recaps ARCTIC (21:08), a strong film featuring Mads Mikkelsen in a grueling, survivalist role. Kris and Evan then wrap up with HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U and RUSSIAN DOLL (34:25), which arguably have similar plots but take them in radically different — and both extremely entertaining — directions.

TED 2: Uncomfortable sincerity, along with a lot of failed jokes. – Kris Jenson

Megan Kearns from Bitch Flicks joins Kris and Evan on this week’s episode to lament HANNIBAL’s cancellation by NBC before Evan shares a story about Mads Mikkelsen using his creeping powers for good. Then Kris and Megan give him the lowdown on TED 2, which Kris says is filled with “uncomfortable sincerity, along with a lot of failed jokes.” After that Evan and Megan talk about how much they enjoyed Queen Latifah and Mo’Nique’s performances in the HBO biopic BESSIE. Kris follows up with a brief interlude about foam penises and failed orgies in THE OVERNIGHT. Finally, Megan brings everything together with Kate Winslet’s A LITTLE CHAOS, which she appreciates for showing more than telling.
