NOT OKAY and MEDUSA on Episode #420

Zoey Deutch wears a beret and stands in front of ring lights taking photos in the movie Not OkayThis week we have two movies on the docket that we have some VERY strong opinions about. First, we cover Anita Rocha da Silveira’s MEDUSA (1:57), a compelling neon-soaked feminist allegory about a militant young religious woman who experiences a world-shattering crisis of faith. It’s hard to describe succinctly, but the extended summary on IMDb does a good job. Next, we review Quinn Shephard’s NOT OKAY (25:56), a satire about a self-involved young woman (Zoey Deutch) who gains followers and fame by posing as the survivor of a terrorist attack but experiences a spectacular fall from grace when her secret is discovered. Spoiler: It’s a film that deeply divided us. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about the winner of our 1984 movie poll: Wolfgang Peterson’s fantasy epic THE NEVERENDING STORY

GOOD MADAM and DON’T MAKE ME GO on Episode #418

Our faces while we watched DON’T MAKE ME GO

Dave is taking a few weeks off (and we’ll miss him), so we’re taking on this week’s movies as a duo. First, we review Jenna Cato Bass’s GOOD MADAM (2:13), a South African horror film on Shudder that we find pretty confusing. But we do think it has some interesting commentary on race and class underneath. Then we cover Hannah Marks’s DON’T MAKE ME GO (25:00) an uneven Amazon drama mired by strange narrative choices. However, it features yet another amazing performance by John Cho. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Nathan Greno and Byron Howard’s 2010 Disney animated film TANGLED, starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi!
