M3GAN, THE PALE BLUE EYE, and WHITE NOISE on Episode #443

Megan has a blank stare in the movie M3gan.Evan is off this week, so it’s the Dave and Megan show. But before the Dave and Megan show, Megan goes solo, covering M3GAN (3:01), the crazy AF killer A.I. robot movie starring Allison Williams. And—perfect timing—one of Dave’s children interrupts and scares the crap out of him as he and Megan discuss said killer robot movie. Yeesh! Next, Megan and Dave talk about Noah Baumbach’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s unfilmable (question mark?) novel WHITE NOISE (17:41). They round things out with the new Christian Bale thriller THE PALE BLUE EYE (36:02), directed by Scott Cooper and featuring Harry Melling as a young Edgar Allan Poe. Don’t forget to check out this week’s Patreon exclusive audio in which Megan and Dave talk about Nora Ephron’s SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE.
