After discussing the trailer for the upcoming TRUTH OR DARE and a rumored long-lost Clint Eastwood movie, Evan, Kris, and Dave get down to answering some questions posed by a listener about Quentin Tarantino and rumors of his possible attachment to a new STAR TREK movie (5:00). Then they answer more questions and Kris fills the guys in on his return to letterboxd.com (15:45). Finally, it’s off to the main event, the new Leigh Whannel-written INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY (18:30), and what the hell it all means in the context of the INSIDIOUS series. Stay warm, New England.
Merry Christmas from Spoilerpiece! Dave is out sick with a stomach bug, so Kris decides to share his own gross stomach bug experience out of solidarity. He and Evan then talk about the lush visuals and excellent craft in CAROL, a Todd Haynes movie that impressed their colleagues, but underwhelmed both of them with its inert plot. After that they review THE BIG SHORT, an unexpectedly sharp film about the financial crisis made by the same guy who did STEP BROTHERS and the ANCHORMAN movies. They wrap with their extensive thoughts on Quentin Tarantino’s latest picture THE HATEFUL EIGHT, a sadistic story that will forever change your perception of the song “Silent Night.”
