LIFE UPSIDE DOWN, BLOOD, and 2023 Oscar Nominations on Episode #446

Bob Odenkirk sits against a wall looking miserable with a mask dangling from his face in the film Life Upside Down.We kick off the show by discussing our reactions to the 2023 Oscar nominations (2:25), which dropped earlier in the week. Next, we review Brad Anderson’s frustrating horror/thriller BLOOD (15:46), which stars Michelle Monaghan as a desperate mother trying to protect her son after he gets bitten by a dog and undergoes an unsettling transformation. Then we review Cecilia Miniucchi’s disappointing COVID lockdown relationship comedy LIFE UPSIDE DOWN (34:55), a movie where Bob Odenkirk gives an uncharacteristically lousy performance. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about the winner of our legacy sequels poll, TOP GUN: MAVERICK!

Michelle Monahan, Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage in Pixels

How the fuck did Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage end up in PIXELS?

This week Dave tells everyone more about why he loves HIDING OUT with John Cryer and poses an interesting theory about Jim Carrey before Kris shares that he was wearing flannel before it was cool. Evan kept his promise to see THE TRIBE so he can’t wait to share his thoughts about how fucked up its graphic scenes of violence and sex are. Then he tries to summarize the plot for PIXELS, while explaining how terrible it is to Dave and Kris. Thankfully Kris shifts momentum to discuss SOUTHPAW, which is about a boxer who isn’t a southpaw, but he does have his own entourage. Dave wraps up the episode by reviewing INFINITELY POLAR BEAR, a film he enjoyed where Mark Ruffalo plays the kind of bipolar father who tells rivers to go fuck themselves.

Sophia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon covered in

Sophia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon covered in “flour” aka cocaine in HOT PURSUIT

This week Kris starts off by recommending a title for Dave’s autobiography. Dave gets a good laugh out of that before explaining why he doesn’t watch bad ’80s John Travolta movies (except URBAN COWBOY) and why Debra Winger is one of his least favorite onscreen presences. After that he talks about how HOT PURSUIT tries to subvert buddy comedy cliches and fails. In the process, Kris describes how he got accidentally hooked on THE NEW GIRL. Then he and Evan talk about the layers and complexity in FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD that make it such an enjoyable film. Finally, Dave wraps things up with his take on PLAYING IT COOL, a romantic comedy which has some decent moments, but mostly gets demerits from him for “being dumb as shit.”
