To start this week, we discuss Aline Brosh McKenna’s directorial debut, YOUR PLACE OR MINE (2:13). This Netflix rom-com, which divides us, stars Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher as long-distance best friends who figure out their romantic feelings for each other while she stays in his apartment in NYC for grad school and he takes care of her son back in LA. Next, we review Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s SCREAM VI (30:40), the latest installment in the SCREAM franchise. We’re also divided about this movie, but we can all agree that setting it in the Big Apple was a smart move. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Vittorio De Sica’s Italian neo-realist drama BICYCLE THIEVES in honor of its 75th anniversary this year!

DEATH ON THE NILE, SCREAM, 7 DAYS, and the 2022 Oscars on Episode #403
We start by discussing this year’s Oscars, particularly the winners, the snubs, and our overall thoughts on the program. Then Dave and Evan review the Roshan Sethi’s rom-com 7 DAYS (11:49), about a mismatched Indian couple (Karan Soni and Geraldine Viswanathan) who start out on a traditional pre-arranged date and have to shelter in place together once COVID spreads. Next, we all tackle the latest SCREAM movie (21:55), a meta horror flick that has us split. After that we cover Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of the Agatha Christie murder mystery DEATH ON THE NILE (42:19), another film that has us divided. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about the winner of our women-directed films poll, Susan Seidelman’s 1985 dramedy, DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN, starring Rosanna Arquette and Madonna!
