THE TRUTH, HOMEWRECKER, MUCHO MUCHO AMOR, and EUROVISION SONG CONTEST: THE STORY OF FIRE SAGA on Episode #312

Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche face each other in THE TRUTH

We have Michael McDonald on the brain before Evan briefly reviews EUROVISION SONG CONTEST: THE STORY OF FIRE SAGA (3:10), a bloated comedy with fun music, but terrible jokes, starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. Then Megan covers MUCHO MUCHO AMOR (10:13), a moving documentary about the effervescent and ostentatious gender non-conforming Latinx astrologer icon, Walter Mercado. Next, she and Evan tackle THE TRUTH (21:15), Kore-eda Hirokazu’s layered French drama about a complicated mother-daughter relationship, starring Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche. Lastly, everyone reviews HOMEWRECKER (34:32), a horror flick about a woman obsessed with another woman; it has good ideas that fails to capitalize on them. On our bonus Patreon exclusive, we talk about one of our favorite summer blockbusters, JAWS.

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, DEADPOOL 2, DISOBEDIENCE, and GENTLEMAN’S AGREEMENT on Episode #201

Alden Ehrenreich in Solo: A Star Wars Story looking skeptically at Woody Harrelson while Chewbacca stands in the background looking the same way with his head tilted.

As we suspected Alden Ehrenreich makes for a terrible Han Solo in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

Here we are at episode 201, kids! We made it! Evan kicks the show off with a Crewind of GENTLEMAN’S AGREEMENT (3:04), a 1947 film about anti-Semitism starring Gregory Peck. Kris follows up with DEADPOOL 2 (11:14), a movie that Kris feels differently about from most critics. Then Dave and Evan go into DISOBEDIENCE (26:19), director Sebastian Lelio’s English-language debut starring Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, and Alessandro Nivola, about, as New Order might say, a bizarre love triangle. Finally, Evan and Dave get into SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (36:07). Who liked it? Who didn’t? By the way, there are tangents aplenty in this episode.

GAME NIGHT, THE LEISURE SEEKER, LOVING VINCENT, THE BOSS BABY, and PACIFIC HEIGHTS on Episode #189

JASON BATEMAN as Max and RACHEL McADAMS as Annie lay in the middle of the street in GAME NIGHT.

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams take cover in the surprising action comedy GAME NIGHT.

Hello there! On this week’s episode, Evan and Dave run us through quintessential early ’90s psycho stalker flick PACIFIC HEIGHTS (5:04) that lets Keaton be Keaton. Next up, Dave unleashes his disdain for the pointless and needlessly infuriating THE LEISURE SEEKER (17:19), which thankfully no one is going to see anyway. Then it’s on to Kris, who watched two films nominated for Best Animated Feature, THE BOSS BABY (24:41) and LOVING VINCENT (30:48). He hated one and tolerated the other. Guess which is which — then flip that guess, and that’s the correct answer. Last up is the main event, GAME NIGHT (33:55), which has massively undersold just how funny and exciting it is through awful, horrendous trailers. It’s the rarest of all movies: an action-thriller-comedy where all three components work!
