Welcome! This week, Evan revisits FIRST BLOOD (6:30), a movie with more human tragedy and societal messages than its notoriously jingoistic sequels are remembered for. Next up, Kris runs us through MARY POPPINS RETURNS (12:31), an unnecessary but nonetheless enjoyable remake/sequel. Last up is AQUAMAN (25:06), the DC Extended Universe’s first movie that’s only okay.

PHANTOM THREAD (Paul Thomas Anderson), and Liam Neeson in THE COMMUTER on Episode #183

Ah, this scene, with Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) fitting a dress for Alma (Vicky Krieps), goes in many different directions.

Evan is sunning himself on a beach somewhere – or maybe not. But he’s in Florida, which means he’s warmer than Kris and Dave. And that means there’s a special guest filling in, friend-of-the-show Greg Vellante! After a brief discussion about why Greg works seven full days a week, he breaks down the latest Liam-Neeson-kills-people-in-January movie THE COMMUTER (6:03). Kris lets everyone know how’s he’s doing with his Letterboxd account, and then they’re into tha main event: Paul Thomas Anderson’s PHANTOM THREAD, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Vicky Krieps. One word of advice: See it on film if you have the opportunity.
