We take on two movies this week. The first is the Andrew Semans psychological thriller RESURRECTION (3:16), a tense and visually arresting movie featuring a powerhouse performance by Rebecca Hall, and an ambiguous ending that leaves us divided. The second movie we review is Dan Trachtenberg’s PREY (25:08), an artful, authentic, and action-packed origin story in the PREDATOR franchise about a Comanche warrior (Amber Midthunder) who takes on a Predator in 1719. And in our Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Nicholas Meyer’s 70s sci-film TIME AFTER TIME starring Malcolm McDowell, David Warner, and Mary Steenburgen.
This week we kick things off with Jordan Peele’s latest film NOPE (2:12), delving right into spoiler territory on this intriguing horror film. Next, we tackle Charlotte Colbert’s gorgeous horror film SHE WILL (16:35), which follows a recovering actor (Alice Krige) who gains supernatural powers while recovering from cancer surgery in the Scottish countryside. We wrap up with Billy Porter’s directorial debut, ANYTHING’S POSSIBLE (28:12), a joyous and moving rom-com about a trans teen (Eva Reign) navigating her senior year of high school. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we’re talking about the 1997 Robert Zemeckis film CONTACT, starring Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey in honor of its 25th anniversary!
